Skip to comments.Joe Manchin: I’m Looking at Kavanaugh’s Life ‘from 22 to 53’ to Decide Vote

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) signaled in an interview published Thursday that decades-old sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh will not play a major role in his vote on the judges Supreme Court confirmation. Manchin, a key Democrat swing vote, lamented the Senate Judiciary Committees handling of its investigation into allegations against Kavanaugh, describing the previous few weeks as horrible and a circus.
I am looking at the gentleman as an adult from 22 to 53, thirty-one years of professional service, Manchin told Al-Jazeera. I am looking at him as a father. As a person in a community, how he interacts with his community. I am trying to put the human side to it.
The red state Democrat made similar remarks told Fox News Chad Pergram Wednesday afternoon.
Manchins remarks come as Democrat Senators have begun ratcheting up criticism of the FBIs findings. Sen. Chris Coons (D-CT) expressed concern Thursday morning that the agency did not interview Kavanaugh or his first accuser, California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford.

That’s a very non-comment comment on Manchin’s part.
Guess he’s still gauging the political wind.
Hopefully, one person in the Dem. Party has some common sense.
No matter what his vote, Joe needs to be sent packing.
I suppose the stellar lifelong judicial record is not sufficient you piece of crap???
Is Joe breaking out his rifle and shooting holes I. Things again in order to save his political career.
All signs point to “Yes”.
Heitkamp said NO. She is currently cleaning out her desk
Well, he DID say that he would look at his life from 22 to 53. Notice he DIDN’T say from 17 to 53. Not to trust a Democrat any farther than I can throw one, but he may be saying that he has been able to discount the Ford allegations. But, I may be wrong, too.
He’s taking polls and waiting for another redstate Dem to say no...Heidi gave him cover.
This statement,which appears to be an exact quote,seems to indicate that he's convinced that Ford was either lying or delusional.
Manchin...the rest of your political life depends on your vote here. Do not be an idiot!
Joe should Go!
There is no question of his professional life. If Joe is too partisan to see that and commit to vote for Kavanaugh, then Joe should Go!
He's deciding whether to join the parade after the street sweeper has passed by. I would almost rather have Flake vote no to keep it 50-50 to keep the red state Dems away.
Hey Joe are you too stupid to realize that you opened up a can of worms. Any Democrat nominated to the bench will be investigated from the age of two through the day he/she was nominated.
Manchin is a far leftist with ACU ratings far worse than Collins’s. He needs to be sent packing. The President should mount a full-court press in WV.
Heidi is down by 11 points. Mancin is up in his race.
No. Joe. What u r looking for is to see if the GOP has enough votes
to confirm Kavanaugh. If so, u will jump on the train.
Read earlier Manchin had in his office 20 “Survivors” of sexual assault, AKA George Soros funded loons..so will see what happens
