Never Trump Republicans undermine President Trump every chance they can get.
Senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker were forced into early retirement over their anti-Trump views.
But now they see a clear opportunity for revenge, and it could be disastrous for Trump — and America.
Liberal Republicans Lisa Murkowski (AK), Jeff Flake (AZ), and Bob Corker (TN) are threatening to delay (and possibly kill) Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by the Washington Post.
The event allegedly happened at a party in the early 1980s, when the woman was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17.
Kavanaugh told The New Yorker, “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”
But the woman’s story is full of holes.
And she is represented by high-profile #MeToo Attorney, Debra Katz.
Democrats have been sitting on these accusations for months, so this is just another partisan effort to scuttle Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
But with the vote coming down to the wire, Republicans can’t afford defections.
And that’s exactly what several Never Trump Republicans are threatening to do.
“If they push forward without any attempt with hearing what she’s had to say, I’m not comfortable voting yes,” Flake said. “We need to hear from her. And I don’t think I’m alone in this.”
Asked if the committee vote should be delayed to hear out Ford, Corker replied: “I think that would be best for all involved, including the nominee. If she does want to be heard, she should do so promptly.” Republicans control just 51 seats in the Senate, so the comments of the two retiring senators are highly consequential.
Later Sunday, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), a moderate who had yet to say how she will vote, echoed the notion that the vote might need to be delayed. “If there is real substance to this, it demands a response,” she told CNN.
In the 2016 election, many voters cast their ballot for Trump because they did not want Hillary Clinton appointing Supreme Court Justices.
Liberal Republicans are blinded by their hatred of Trump.
By joining with Democrats to hold up Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation they are thumbing their nose at Trump supporters.
If they succeed in taking down Judge Kavanaugh, it would strike a major blow to President Trump’s efforts to preserve the U.S. Supreme Court.
