According to new reports hitting the Internet, conservatives across America are not the only folks who are ticked off at Sen. Chuck Grassley’s weak handling of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing and the subsequent sexual assault allegations that have been tossed out at him.
Apparently President Trump is furious with Grassley as well. It’s never a good thing to have Trump angry with you, but who can blame the president? Things surely could’ve been handled better here, right?
The President also reportedly expressed frustration with Republicans for letting themselves be “too easily manipulated by Democrats.” A Republican source close to the President said that the White House does “not believe [Ford’s] accusations are credible” and wants the Senate to vote on Kavanaugh.
“In private talks, Trump has targeted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Grassley for criticism, complaining that they have not been forceful enough in speeding up the process and have been too deferential to Ford’s attorneys, according to two people familiar with Trump’s concerns,” WaPo reports.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised a vote on Kavanaugh on the Senate floor in the near future no matter what happens.
Since day one of the Judiciary Committee hearings on SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has let the Democrats make a mockery of the proceedings. The moment Kamala Harris and Cory Booker hijacked the moment to grandstand with talks of “I am Spartacus,” he should have forced a vote right then and there to teach them a lesson. He did no such thing.
You don’t have to be a Trump fan to acknowledge that Grassley’s handling of this situation has left much to be desired.
There’s been far too much capitulation to Ford and her attorneys’ demands, especially with the fact they’ve not been able to really provide any sort of tangible evidence to substantiate her claim.
Let’s hope this matter gets resolved quickly and Kavanaugh affirmed.
