McConnell Triples Down: We're Voting This Week on Judge Kavanaugh

Speaking during a press conference Tuesday afternoon on Capitol Hill, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tripled down on his promise to hold a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh this week.

"We'll get an FBI report soon. It will be made available to each Senator. All the Senators will be able to look at it," McConnell said. "We'll be voting this week."

During a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, McConnell berated Democrats for continued their deployment of delay tactics against Judge Kavanaugh's nomination. 

“It started with straightforward political maneuvering. None of it worked, of course. But -- whatever excuses they could find to delay, delay, delay. First, back in June, Democrats tried to argue the Senate shouldn’t confirm a Supreme Court justice in any even-numbered year. Then they were reminded that Justices Kagan, Breyer, and Souter were all confirmed during midterm election years. And that argument evaporated," McConnell said.

“Next, Democrats said the process should be delayed because too few documents were available from Judge Kavanaugh’s past public service. Well, then they received the most pages of documents ever produced for a Supreme Court nomination. Guess what came next? The goalposts moved down the field and the Democrats called for delay because there were too many documents for them to read," he continued. "I wish this fight could have remained in the realm of normalcy. But when none of these tactics worked -- when Judge Kavanaugh demonstrated his widely-acknowledged brilliance, open-mindedness, and collegiality at his confirmation hearings -- some chose a darker road. The politics of personal destruction were willfully unleashed."

He also again said Senators will vote soon. 

"After the FBI shares what they’ve found, Senators will have the opportunity to vote. We’ll have the opportunity to vote ‘no’ on the politics of personal destruction," McConnell said. "We’ll have the opportunity to vote ‘yes’ on this fine nominee.”
