The Senate Judiciary Committee was going to vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh Thursday but that’s not going to happen, at least not yet. Instead, since a woman has stepped forward and accused President Trump’s SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were both in high school, that vote has been delayed. Now, both Kavanaugh and his accuser, Mrs. Ford, are set to testify about the last-minute allegations.
Asking both to answer these allegations only makes sense, right? The Democrats couldn’t possibly object to such a proceeding. That’s obviously what they wanted by bringing these allegations mere days before the committee was to vote.
One of the biggest questions surrounding these allegations is how this will affect the midterms. Now, candidates running for office are offering up opinions on the Kavanaugh allegations, including Indiana Republican Mike Braun.
Braun offered up the following opinion on the topic:
I support Sen. Grassley’s decision to have these 11th hour allegations thoroughly reviewed by the Judiciary Cmte., & weighed against Judge Kavanaugh’s decades of public service, sterling record on the bench, outstanding personal reputation & unequivocal denial of the allegations.
