Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is digging in his heels and refusing to let Democrats “move the goalposts” on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote.
The vote will happen either Thursday or Friday — and that’s that.
It all depends on the FBI investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Kavanaugh. Insiders say the investigation is in it’s final stages, and will be completed as soon as Wednesday afternoon.
That could mean the vote is called as early as Thursday morning.
That’s the firm timeline, McConnell said.
So, baring any unforeseen surprises, Kavanaugh’s fate will be decided by Oct. 5.
“The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close. Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is out of committee. We’re considering it here on the floor and … we’ll be voting this week,” McConnell said on Monday.
Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court in early July by President Donald Trump.
Everything seemed to be going smoothly until an 11th hour accusation of sexual misconduct was suddenly revealed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office.

For the past few weeks, the nation has watched breathlessly as additional accusations flooded in. Kavanaugh has recently been accused of a host of misdeeds — from throwing ice cubes at a man and using fart humor too often as a teen to beating up a woman on a boat and being the ringleader of a gang of serial rapists.
Three months later, and the end is almost here.
