Today is a big day. It is hard to downplay the stakes for today’s Kavanaugh showdown.
That said, the truth is much of it is for a show for the respective bases because as Trump told McConnell on a call last night – if he goes down I will have another judge for you in an hour.
The GOP has plenty of time before next January to confirm a justice. Even if they lose the Senate they won’t turn over the gavel until January.
That said, this political process has become disgraceful and we are now ruining careers and reputations at the drop of a hat.
As reported by The Dailly Caller:
A Rhode Island man who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting his friend apologized on Wednesday and said he “made a mistake.”
The man called Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s office and claimed that Kavanaugh and Mark Judge, a high school friend of Kavanaugh, drunkenly sexually assaulted one of his friends, according to interview transcripts released by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
A committee investigator asked Kavanaugh about the allegation during an interview on Tuesday, which he denied.
The man’s name was redacted in the transcripts released to the public but the investigator quoted verbatim several outlandish anti-Trump tweets from the man’s Twitter account, allowing reporters to identify him on Twitter as “Jeffrey Catalan.”
