The GOP finally has had enough of the Democrats circus side show of accusations and grandstanding and are looking to vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination this Friday. Don’t look now but the Republicans may have just found their balls …
The Gateway Pundit Reports: The Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a Friday 9:30 AM ET vote on Kavanaugh according to a notice sent out by the Panel Tuesday evening.
Note: This is only a vote in the Judiciary Committee–the vote must still advance to the Senate floor where Judge Kavanaugh must reach the magic number of 51-49 votes.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is putting his foot down –he sent ranking member of the Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) a scathing letter Tuesday afternoon shooting down Feinstein’s demands to postpone Thursday’s hearing.
Senator Grassley then warned about Ms. Ramirez’s flimsy accusations against Kavanaugh as reported in the New Yorker, “As you know, false statements made to the press are not subject to criminal penalty, but false statements to Congress are.”
Senate Judiciary Cmte sets 9:30 am vote on Kavanaugh. Note, this only a vote in cmte. A successful cmte vote is not necessary to advance a nomination to the flr. Justice Clarence Thomas got no recommendation from the Judiciary Cmte & was still confirmed.

Grassley said he following Committee rules.
Judic Cmte noticed POTENTIAL exec mtg for Friday. Still taking this 1 step at a time. After hrg Dr Ford & Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony- if we‘re ready to vote, we will vote. If we aren’t ready, we won’t. Cmte rules normally require 3 days notice so we‘re following regular order
