Posted on 08/24/2018 12:29:17 PM PDT by jazusamo
Democrats on the SenateJudiciary Committee officially requested a delay Friday in the planned confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, saying there are too many questions to move forward with the Sept. 4 planned start.
All 10 Democrats signed a letter demanding the delay.
They listed a lack of documents, and President Trumps mounting legal entanglements as matters that must be sorted out before Judge Kavanaugh faces questions in public for the first time since his nomination to the Supreme Court.
They also said Mr. Trumps personnel judgment is in question after the troubles faced by a number of his original Cabinet and senior adviser picks.

I bet dollars to donuts the turtle folds before the vote.
Is President Trump under investigation or indictment? If not, he has no “legal troubles” to speak of unless they’re taking advice from Rachel Maddow, who, as far as I know, isn’t an attorney.
I have a hunch Grassley and McConnell will confirm.
No he won’t. They didn’t fold on Garland. If and When Kavvanah gets in the Dems are going to feel so down in the dumps.
No! No more delays, confirm him in September.
He didn’t fold on Merrick Garland or Neil Gorsuch did he? This is actually one of the few areas where Senate Majority Leader McConnell is effective. Cut him some slack until the evidence says otherwise.
“I bet dollars to donuts the turtle folds before the vote.”
Horsecrap. This is the one area were McConnell shines.
Their next gambit will be to not show up at the hearings, to prevent them from starting.
No VALID reason to delay.Peroid.
That’s nice Dems, you can’t stop anything. All you have left is political posturing.
Forget the Democrats.
The two key figures in whats about to happen are Paul Ryan and Mike Pence.
“Just say ‘No’”
If it were about Obamacare, maybe. But McConnell has been very good on judicial nominations - I expect him and Grassley to cram Kavanaugh right down the Democrats’ throats.
Turtle’s head is already retreating into his shell. Knock twice to ask him to come out to justify his position on the vote.
Then ask if turtle soup is any good because it’s on the menu.
