I'm not fully up on all the formal Rules of the Senate, but.... is he the one who gets that sort of say on the matter?

My understanding is that a civilian doesn’t have to accept the nomination, but that if he appoints someone from the military, they may have less of a say, since he is the Commander in Chief.

Maybe someone smarter than me can clarify or confirm.

This is going to get so cringy and painful someone will come to their senses. Look he is already trying to distract by calling a Rod meeting on Thursday. Plus he is already saying he did not really want to pick Brett. Already distracting and covering his dupa.

Republicans: Dr. Ford's claim will not be investigated and she will not be allowed to present any witnesses in her defense because we have already determined that she is either lying or mistaken.

Also Republicans: It is shameful that Democrats are denying Judge Kavanaugh the due process all Americans deserve.

I have this fantasy that the John Kelly conversation went down like this:

JK: “what’s up, man, good to see you!”

RR: “you too buddy! Didn’t think it would be under these circumstances though. Lemme guess: Trump was gonna fire me today? 😂”

JK: “how’d you guess?”

RR: “and did he state the reason?”

JK: “of course he did, he stated that we ‘gotta get rid of that witch hunt Russia Investigation once and for all’. It was actually gonna be Mueller, but we had to remind him - again - that only you can do that, fucking moron!”

RR: “Jesus, what an idiot. Ok so you got all that on tape?”

JK: “yep.”

RR: “and you’ll testify under oath?”

JK: “Hell yeah.”

RR: “so Thursday we take him down?”

JK: “I’ll be there!”

If he is fired Trump cant take advantage of the vacancies reform act.

If Rosenstein resigns, Trump could try to fill Rosenstein’s empty post using the Vacancies Reform Act. That act, passed in 1998, enables the President to temporarily fill executive branch vacancies with anyone who has been confirmed for an executive branch post by the Senate or anyone above a certain salary level at DOJ. But he has to resign, if he is fired Francisco would fill in as AG.

Literally all the witnesses in BOTH accusations have said it didn't happen. And no one was raped. This second accusation AT WORST just seems like a joke gone a little too far. Again, though, no one is backing it up. Stop comparing child rape and people being drugged and raped to what is going on here.

And you don't care if these accusations are true. No one here does. You just want the vote for Kavanaugh to be delayed.

You are actively spreading misinformation, stop.

The statements provided to the Senate by the witnesses (with the exception of Kavanaugh himself) do not say “it didn’t happen,” they say they “cannot recall the event.”

This (most likely intentionally) leaves open the possibility that it could have happened.

This should be 100% up to Kavanaugh. He had worked most of his life towards this ultimate pinnacle of success, for him, and he is the only person who should decide whether to drop out or not.

Let me get this straight, Kavanaugh is going to combat the accusations by showing off his work calendar from 1982 to show that the party in question doesn't appear on it? This is about the weakest attempt to display innocence that I've seen. From the article, "The calendars do not disprove Dr. Blasey’s allegations, Judge Kavanaugh’s team acknowledged. He could have attended a party that he did not list. But his team will argue to the senators that the calendars provide no corroboration for her account of a small gathering at a house where he allegedly pinned her to a bed and tried to remove her clothing." This proves absolutely nothing and is a smokescreen to change the narrative.

I keep saying this, but this is not a Dem ploy, this is just a shit candidate.

Pick someone else and they will probably sail through.

I bring this up all the time with conservatives and nobody seems to have an answer. If Democrats are willing to fabricate these sorts of allegations, why didn't we do it with Gorsuch? Oh wait, he didn't try to rape anybody and have the Tiger Mom groom legal clerks for him.

Be wary of misinformation being spread about the witness statements, it was all over the place last night.

Lots of people saying things have been stated in sworn testimony that were not.

Most of the witnesses have said they don’t remember, not that it didn’t happen.

Please challenge them for sources and facts when you see this.

“Kavanaugh was never there.”

“It was probably just rough horseplay”

I see examples of this absolutely everywhere lately

Yes he did.

"This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes—to her or anyone," Kavanaugh, 53, said in a statement.

That's saying it did not happen.

Is that what he told the senate though, or the press?

Edit: BTW, looks like you moved the goal posts, you were talking about Mark Judge’s sworn statement, which I corrected you on, then you clarified with a Kavanaugh’s statement, if I’m reading that correctly.

From the news reports I've read he provided sworn testimony to the same effect.

Here’s the letter that I was able to find to the SJC, looks like he said he has no memory of the event and never saw Brett act that way.

I’m not trying to be argumentative, but for the sake of accuracy “I have no memory of that event” is different than saying in sworn testimony “it didn’t happen” as it leaves open the possibility that it did happen but he was too drunk to remember.

My understanding is it’s a shady “conservative-values” type PR firm that one of Grassley’s staffers hired to help push Kav and discredit Ford on social media - including helping to spread that insane Ed Whelan “look alike” conspiracy theory - and that Grassley staffer that hired them just got fired for sexual harassment allegations and misrepresenting himself on his resume.

Someone correct me if I’m wrong, it’s really hard to keep up with the various layers of corruption these days.
