Senate Judiciary Committee postpones Kavanaugh confirmation vote

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh was set to receive a confirmation vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sept. 20. … prior to the bombshell sexual misconduct allegation dropped by Democrat California Sen. Dianne Feinstein that sparked a gleefully outraged feeding frenzy by the liberal media.

But in light of Democrat demands for┬ádelay so the vague allegations can be fully “investigated” — and unmet Republican requests to speak with Kavanaugh’s accuser — that confirmation vote has been indefinitely postponed.

According to The Hill, members of the committee were notified on Tuesday that the vote scheduled for Thursday had been canceled by the committee chair, Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley.

Another hearing on Monday

Grassley has scheduled a hearing before the committee on Monday during which Kavanaugh will be called forward again to address the late-raised issue and answer any questions posed by committee members.

Kavanaugh, who vehemently denies the allegations lodged against him, had previously noted that he was willing to appear at any time or place necessary to put the allegations to rest.

The chairman also extended an invitation to speak with the committee to the accuser, liberal California university professor Christine Blasey Ford, though she and her lawyer have prevaricated on whether she will show or not.

Both Ford and her lawyer, as well as most Democrats, say they want the entire confirmation process placed on indefinite hold until a thorough FBI investigation of the matter is concluded … even though the FBI has no jurisdiction over the alleged “crime” that may or may not have occurred 36 years ago, and there aren’t even enough specifics on the incident made public yet with which to base such an investigation on.

No new date for confirmation vote

It remains unclear when the committee’s confirmation vote for Kavanaugh will be rescheduled.

Grassley reportedly avoided answering questions on when that would be after leaving a closed-door meeting with Republican committee members Monday night, and again avoided the question Tuesday while speaking with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.

With the Senate reportedly out for the rest of the week, with most senators having gone home or on the campaign trail for the next several days, it is likely that we won’t hear anything about a rescheduled confirmation vote in the committee until next week.

This sort of an indefinite and interminable delay in the confirmation process for Kavanaugh is exactly what Democrats hoped to achieve, and it is disconcerting that some Republicans are playing into the Democrats’ hands by going along with the delay, either as part of a good-faith effort to settle the dispute or because of other underlying motives, such as an animosity toward the president and his pick.

Hopefully, the additional hearing with Kavanaugh will take place Monday and, depending upon whether Ford cooperates with the committee or continues to call for delays, a new date for a confirmation vote is set so this process can continue to its ultimate conclusion — Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court.
