Mitch McConnell Brims with Confidence Over Kavanaugh Confirmation

Editorial credit: Christopher Halloran /

As the battle over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court continues to rage, some of Washington’s biggest names are weighing in.

Earlier today, President Trump made a shocking statement on Twitter regarding the 36 year old incident, complaining that Kavanaugh’s accuser would have alerted authorities at the time of the alleged interaction with the future Judge.

Of course, we cannot pretend to know how anyone would handle such an incident, had it truly occurred, and I have already stated that I disagree with the President’s move here.

Trending: Science is Settled

Now, Mitch McConnell is coming to Kavanaugh’s side as well, but will not be invoking the same sort of sentiment to do so.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) predicted during the Values Voters Summit on Friday that “Judge Kavanaugh will be on the Supreme Court.”

Sen. McConnell predicted that the Senate will soon confirm President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee on Friday despite the accusations laid against Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor, has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both in high school in the 1980s.

Ford alleges that in 1982, 17-year-old Kavanaugh and a friend pulled Ford into a room during a high school party in suburban Maryland, forced her onto a bed, and groped her over her clothing before she was able to escape.

McConnell continues to back Kavanaugh, saying that “President Trump has nominated a stunningly successful individual.”

Sen. McConnell charged that Senate Republicans must “wait out the obstruction” from Senate Democrats and that Kavanaugh will soon join President Trump’s other nominee, Neil Gorsuch, on the Supreme Court.

As of this writing, it appears as though Kavanaugh’s accuser will appear before the Senate next week in order to lay out her recollection of the night in question.

Brett Kavanaugh and the two other witnesses named by his accuser have denied having any knowledge of the party at which the alleged incident occurred.
