McConnell channels his inner badass, tells the nation how Kavanaugh confirmation’s going to go down

Mitch McConnell is plowing through the rhetoric and distractions and getting right to the point.

The Senate Majority Leader said President Trump “nominated a stunningly successful individual” in Brett Kavanaugh and the Republican senator from Kentucky reassured Americans concerned about the disturbing tactics seen from Democrats that Kavanaugh will be seated on the Supreme Court “in the very near future.”

McConnell was speaking Friday at the Values Voter Summit in Washington amid allegations of sexual misconduct made at the 11th hour when Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., produced a letter from the accuser that she had been sitting on for weeks.

“You’ve watched the fight. You’ve watched the tactics, But here’s what I want to tell you: In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court,” McConnell said.

“Don’t get rattled by all of this,” he would add. “We’re gonna plow right through it and do our job.”

Amid growing anxiety over the eventual outcome, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also reassured people the process to confirm Kavanaugh is on track in a late-night tweet on Thursday.

Responding to President Trump expressing confidence in Kavanaugh at a rally in Las Vegas, Graham tweeted: “Kavanaugh nomination is still on track. Stay tuned!”

Christine Blasey Ford, the liberal professor who accused Kavanaugh of groping her 36 years ago in high school is now making laughable demands as preconditions to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week.

Turning the the U.S. legal system on its head, Ford’s attorneys are demanding that the accused, Kavanaugh, testify first, than he cannot be in the room when Ford gives her testimony, and that she can only be questioned by committee members, with no lawyers asking questions.

As for Kavanaugh, he’s chomping at the bit to go before the Senate committee to clear his name.
