(CNSNews.com) -- Speaking at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that, “In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court.”
McConnell also told the audience to not “get rattled by all of this. We’re going to plow right through it and do our job.”
“And you’re all following the current Supreme Court fight,” said the Majority Leader. “And you will watch it unfold in the course of the next week.”
“President Trump has nominated a stunningly successful individual,” said McConnell. “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.”
He continued, “So, my friends, keep the faith. Don’t get rattled by all of this. We’re going to plow right through it and do our job.”
“So, moving beyond the Supreme Court, here’s our challenge for the future,” said McConnell. “To do our jobs, wait out the obstruction, confirm quality nominees to the judiciary. We’re going to keep on doing this.”
“We’re not going to get rattled by all this and I don’t want you to get rattled by it,” he said. “We’re not going to slow down. We’re just going to keep going ahead. Even more nominees are going to be confirmed.”
Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, was nominated by President Trump on July 9, 2018, to serve as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, replacing the retiring Justice Willam Kennedy.
On Sept. 16, a woman from California, Dr. Christine M. Blasey Ford, claimed that, while in high school (1981 or 82?), Brett Kavanaugh, drunk and at a party, pushed her onto a bed and allegedly tried to disrobe her. Ford does not know exactly what year the alleged assault occurred, in which house it occurred, and how she got home after the incident.
Kavanaugh has publicly and emphatically denied that the alleged attack ever occurred. Also, two other people named as being at the party have said they do not recall any such incident or the alleged party. No witness has corroborated Ford’s allegation.
