‘We take to the streets’: Heated reaction pours in as McConnell announces cloture vote on Kavanaugh

Fed-up with the Democrats’ never-ending intransigence, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell has effectively put an end to their recent shenanigans by filing for a cloture vote in the case of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

A cloture vote is a vote to end an ongoing debate. In a speech delivered on the Senate floor Wednesday evening, McConnell announced that the Senate would vote to end the debate on Kavanaugh’s confirmation Friday and then vote for his actual confirmation the next day.

He defended his decision by noting that the results of the FBI investigation into the SCOTUS nominee’s pasts were to be released soon. He was right. A copy of the results were slated to be available for review at the Senate’s Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility as early as Thursday morning.

“Members will have the opportunity to review the investigators’ records. And, as is the standard procedure, designated Judiciary Committee staff members with the required clearances will be authorized to brief members,” McConnell said.

“There will be plenty of time for Members to review and be briefed on the supplemental material before a Friday cloture vote. So I am filing cloture on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination this evening so the process can move forward, as I indicated earlier this week.”

Listen:

The reactions to the Senate majority leader’s announcement were mixed. For every triumphant cry of joy from conservatives, there was an equally sorrowful ululation of horror from liberals, including even failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, Brian Fallon.

Now take a look at the cheers from enthused conservatives:

Regarding Fallon and his peers, they appear to be suffering from a particularly acute case of Trump Anxiety Disorder. There’s no other explanation for their trepidation over a qualified SCOTUS nominee being confirmed to the high court, particularly light of the FBI investigation’s telling results.

“The White House has found no corroboration of the allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after examining interview reports from the FBI’s latest probe into the judge’s background, according to people familiar with the matter,” The Wall Street Journal reported early Thursday morning.
