The nation has been on the edge of their seats as of late, thanks to the bizarre saga surrounding Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
After being subjected to their individual testimony one week ago, Americans have been wrestling with the possibilities both internally and throughout contentious conversations with their peers. I, for one, have felt the change in the air in the nuanced actions of many women in my personal life. This incident has struck a nerve in the United States, and may very well be the last figurate Band-Aid being ripped off of the wound of overt sexism.
The lengthy argument about how best to proceed with Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court was settled by the democrats and republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, with Jeff Flake convincing the White House to direct the FBI to investigate the incident.
Now that the report is in, one would have hoped that the drama would subside. This is not the case.
Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley announced Thursday morning that there is “no hint of misconduct” in the FBI’s report on the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“GOP Senate Judiciary chair: ‘No hint of misconduct’ in confidential FBI report on Kavanaugh sexual misconduct claims,” AP reports.
“There’s nothing in it that we didn’t already know,” said Grassley, according to CNN’s Jim Sciutto.
A procedural vote looms as well, scheduled for Friday at 11am, meaning that we very well could see a flare up of tempers on Capitol Hill today as members of the Senate Judiciary Committee verbally duke it out over the next move.
