Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Monday said embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is now facing two unsupported accusations that he committed sexual misconduct decades ago, will get a vote in the Senate.
McConnell spoke on the Senate floor:
Judge Kavanaugh will be voted on here on the Senate floor, up or down. This fine nominee will receive a vote, in the Senate, in the near future. . . .
I want to be perfectly clear what is taking place. Senate Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man’s personal and professional life on the basis of decades-old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncoordinated. That is where we are. This is what the so-called resistance has become. A smear campaign pure and simple, aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate.
