One of the country's most popular Republican governors on Thursday called for an independent investigation into the allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and said the Senate should hold off on a vote.
Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker made the comments as Professor Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh sexually and physically assaulted here.
"The accusations brought against Judge Kavanaugh are sickening and deserve an independent investigation," Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker tweeted. "There should be no vote in the Senate."
Baker, who faces re-election this November, is one of only a few Republican governors, all political moderates, to express dissatisfaction with the committee's handling of the allegations made against Kavanaugh. In July, Baker was one of three Republican governors, along with Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, to not sign a letter to Senate leaders offering support for Kavanaugh's nomination.
In an interview with the Burlington Free Press, Vermont's Republican governor encouraged senators to conduct a full investigation and "take your time."(continued)

Committee staff have first interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in 1982 that is the basis of his complaint.
Committee staff have a second interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in the summer of 1982 that is the basis of her allegation. He described his recollection of their interaction in some detail.
This guy made it a point to say he wasn’t voting for Trump in 2016.
No one cares, CNN.
No corroborating evidence. People Ford did name say it did not happen.
He governs a communist state with a Fake Indian as a senator.
He doesnt count.
I agree that they are sickening, but only in that such unfounded allegations presented AFTER the last minute would be given any credibility.
We’re going to find out if the adults are still in charge.
Election year for him plus he’s a RINO in a left wing state.
Nothing to see here...............
A Massachusetts is left of a Kentucky Democrat.
Mass. r/Fauxpublican gov=just right of a linski? Just ask in’. Mass FReepers?
Charlie Baker is the best you're going to get as a Republican in statewide office.
And in case anyone is wondering about Reason #1: Any group of voters that keeps a bloated, drunken slob like Ted Kennedy in office for decades should be collectively euthanized.
Baker is a phony repubican.
Lol! Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker? He doesn’t even qualify as a RINO. He’s basically a democrat who’s just slightly less far left than the average Massachusetts democrat so he had to run with an (R) next to his name to stand a chance of making through the primary.
The old ‘convict on accusations’ rule.
Are you white, guv Baker?
Do you have an R after your name?
Do you have a penis?
Wait ‘til they come after you.
I’m gonna lmao.
Every witness she named in her allegations denied her story.
Charlie must be one of those ‘stuck on stupid’ types of popular republican governors.
Delaying the confirmation is exactly what the dems want.
#sit down Chuck
Baker is about as Republican as Dick Durbin.
We don’t need no steenking witnesses. She has named the accused so he’s guilty!
Did Tall Deval Baker mention his own son who is charged with sexual assault?
