WASHINGTON (AP) – Senate Republicans are plowing forward with a committee vote Friday on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Democrats remain vehemently opposed.
The American Bar Association is calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to delay today’s scheduled vote for the Supreme Court nominee.
The Association says there needs to be an FBI Investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.
If Kavanaugh passes today’s committee vote, the full Senate could vote on his nomination as soon as next week.
All of this comes after an extraordinary and highly emotional day of eight hours of testimony over allegations he’d sexually assaulted Doctor Christine Blasey Ford when both were high school students.
Both said they were “100 percent” certain in a dispute that could decide his confirmation. The committee vote remains close, but the full Senate could start voting over the weekend.
