Speaking from the Oval Office Thursday afternoon, President Trump responded to new calls by Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to delay a full confirmation vote for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh until the FBI investigates sexual assault claims from nearly 40 years ago.
Im going to let the Senate handle that. Theyll make their decisions. Theyve been doing a good job and very professional. Im just hearing a little bit about it because Ive been with the president of Chile and were talking about some very important subjects. Im sure it will all be very good. I guess the vote was a positive vote but there seems to be a delay. Ill learn more about it as the day goes on. I just heard about it because we were together, Trump said. "Im going to rely on all the people, including Sen. Grassley who is doing a very good job. That is going to be a decision they are going to make and I suspect theyll be making some decision soon whether to take a vote or do whatever else they want to do. I will be totally reliant on what Sen. Grassley and the group decides to do."
When asked if he was considering a replacement for Kavanaugh, President Trump said "not even a little bit."
No word yet from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about how the vote will proceed.
Ain’t it great ? !
The b/w format makes it perfect, imho
No I think he was a taken back like all of us! We were sure the monkey trial was over and that we had the votes clean..but just like that in a blink of an eye the rats snatched the football again!! This is truly devastating for the kavanuagh’s..an FBI inquiry? ...you and I know where this is heading!
He’ll be on some left-wing think tank’s payroll the millisecond after they complete the oath for his replacement. Maybe even before.
Yes, he has been very calm. He has something on them that he can unleash when needed in my opinion.
I’m so ready to torment that bastard everywhere he goes or gets employed...this is a rally cry!!
Trump knows what Ricky Roma, from Glengarry, Glenn Ross knows.....
“You never open your mouth, until you know what the shot is.”
He's supposed to speak in Boston on Monday.
People engage in fraud should not be demanding investigations
“Release the congressional sex case names. $17,000,000 was paid to silence the victims.”
We know Kavanaugh was a virgin. Why can’t we find out how they blow our tax money?”
I cant wait for Judge Jeanine to rip into these bastards tommorow night.
yes this time it will change everything.
Flake needs to get the Harry Reid workout treatment.
There was an allegation against Chuck Schumer last December.
I dont know about Flake but I suspect there is a McCain Stain. He has a known past affair and additional rumors. It would tarnish the Dems who recently held him up as a moral standard.
Epic fail on Trump’s part. Does he want his nominee confirmed? Essentially not that much.
Smart. Don’t throw any red meat to the ‘rat media. Timing is everything and I think President Trump is getting the timing right on this.
Rest assured whichever lobbyist Flake traded his yes vote for will be rewarding him handsomely.
The delay, FBI probe, etc. is just Kabuki Theater, intended to give him cover for that yes vote.
