A voice vote just took place on the floor of the Senate…Collins, Manchin, and Flake voted yes! The cloture will pass! Collins is holding a press conference at 3:00 p.m. to make an announcement on her final vote. Murkowski voted no.
Before that happened, the Senate leaders spoke. The two Democrats did what was predicted…
Senators Feinstein and Schumer are pivoting from sexual assault and drinking allegations to smear Judge Kavanaugh for temperament. Yes, these people have no shame. Schumer even brought up Kavanaugh’s “elite” privilege so he pulled the class warfare card too. These people have no shame. This has always been about delay and obstruction using lies about a good man. Listen to these two Democrats lie, lie, lie…#WalkAway

Schumer is such a liar…Watch him lie through his teeth:
Sen. Chuck Schumer: “I do not see how it’s possible for my colleagues to say with perfect confidence that Judge Kavanaugh has the temperament, independence and credibility to serve on the United States Supreme Court.”

Schumer: “When future Americans look back at these proceedings, let them look back on this chapter as the shameful culmination of the scorched earth politics practiced by the hard right in America”
The “scorched earth politics” belongs to the Democrats!
Schumer: If Kavanaugh is rejected, Trump will select another nominee, “likely right-of-center, probably not to my liking — but without the cloud that hangs over this nominee”
So Schumer just said he wouldn’t like the next pick from Trump either but he wants the president to pick another nominee. Does that make any sense at all?
