  • The fate of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination is a complete toss-up right now. Until the FBI produces results of its investigation, there’s no way to know which way it will go.

    **Jeffery Tubin, (Legal Analyst) said recently that: you can't bring the investigation to an end on Friday and then have a senate vote on Kavanaugh the same day without having spent time reviewing what the investigators uncovered/found** The Republicans and Mitch McConnel needs to be called out on it. **Geeesh...Americans think... DAMN IT THINK!!!**

    If Manchin and Heitkamp vote to put Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS the Dems should expel them from the Party. Period. Strip them of all their committee assignments and all their seniority. All of it. They might as well be Republicans.

    A investigation limited in time and scope is not a full scope and cant be trusted. Which is exactly what is happening. This investigation has been manipulated by Trump.
