A House Democrat called on his colleagues Wednesday to "rise up" if Republican senators push forward with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation without hearing from his sexual assault accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.
"For the men and women of the House of Representatives, we must rise up in disgust and anger and make certain that our voice is clear," Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., said during an interview with CNN. "Get the facts out. Give this woman the benefit of the doubt. Don't treat her as so many women have been treated time after time in courtroom after courtroom."
Only the Senate has advise and consent responsibilities under the Constitution, rendering the House powerless to express any concerns over nominees named by the president for certain administration positions.
Instead, Garamendi suggested that he and other House lawmakers march over to the Senate because Kavanaugh's nomination was a "defining moment in the #MeToo movement."(continued)

I agree. We, the people should rise up and end the threat to our liberties.
What manipulative pukes the Democrats are!
Frak’ the House uprising, I want a frakin’ CWII, like now cause these cancerous mofos need to go.
Cool. Gopher it.
It’s 1860 all over again.
There ya go.
Fixed it for you.
You know theyre going to do it.
Garamendi give this woman the benefit of the doubt. But not Judge Kavanaugh, right?
JUST CONFIRM HIM..THAT FREAKIN SIMPLE..this is all a CLOWN SHOW just end this sh*t already
They are thugs.
Translation: This isn’t about Blasey Ford. Its about pushing the “war on women” narrative in the next 6 weeks.
Don’t treat her as so many women have been treated ....... by the Clintons.
Mob-of-Simpletons rule. We should not sneer at them for this. They obviously suffer from some mental disabilities and it would be offensive to point that out, hate speech, even.
I hope they do,what a bunch of idiots;)
It’s getting to be about that time.
Ditto. And this is not like a woman bring ignored with a valid cause. The Democrats might check with Bill and Hillary about valid accusations!
The Democrat Representatives should boycott the Congress for the rest of the year. That will show those nasty Republicans.
Ford has been heard from. The senate has her letter to senator difi. She asked for a hearing to explain the letter, was granted a hearing date and so far has not committed to attending. If she fails to appear at the hearing she and her lawyer requested, then the letter stands as her testimony.
