SENATOR LISA MURKOWSKI: I did not come to a decision on this until walking onto the floor this morning. I have been wrestling to really try to know what is fair and what is right, and the truth is, that none of this has been fair.
This hasnt been fair to the judge, but I also recognize that we need to have institutions that are viewed as fair and if people who are victims, people who feel that there is no fairness in our system of government, particularly in our courts, then youve gone down a path that is not good and right for this country. And so I have been wrestling with whether or not this was about qualifications of a good man or is this bigger than the nomination.
And I believe were dealing with issues right now that are bigger than the nominee and how we ensure fairness and how our legislative and judicial branch can continue to be respected. This is what I have been wrestling with, and so I made the took the very difficult vote that I did.
I believe Brett Kavanaughs a good man. It just may be that in my view hes not the right man for the court at this time. So I have taken my vote here this morning, Im going to go back to my office and write a floor statement that is more fulsome and have the opportunity to have that.
But this has truly been the most difficult evaluation of a decision that I have ever had to make, and Ive made some interesting ones in my career.

Some synonyms for "fulsome" are "excessive, extravagant, overdone, immoderate, inordinate, over-appreciative, flattering, adulatory, fawning, unctuous, ingratiating, cloying, saccharine". So I'm sure she will make further "fulsome" statements.
I do not care what this retarded, dishonest woman has to say.
Must feel good, Lisa, to wag your back end at the party and say Nyah Nyah!
Sen. Murkowski has no idea who the real victim is here. Or maybe she does, but just doesn’t care.
She is an awful toad of a human being. No moral compass whatsoever.
Out she goes, who can run against her?
She voted political, so she should get a politicians boot out of office!
Accuse a supreme court justice of something hideous and if the evidence just does happen to come out to prove he is innocent, then say he overdid it in his testimony against sexual assault. He cant win.
I want to know where is the Turtle?
Maybe it will feel better when she is stripped of all her committee assignments and cut off from any re-election funds.
Now we know what she really is!
[ I did not come to a decision on this until walking onto the floor this morning. ]
Sure. I really believe that. As much as I believe anything out of the mouth of Elizabeth Warren.
Basically I can sum up her statement in two words: “F___ Trump!”
This is basically a statement openly asking for a bribe.
The title reads: “Read Her Remarks Declaring Why”
I read her entire remark, she never explained why...
What kind of fake title is this?
Yes, we must believe the accusers who are paid off with $1M on GoDefraudUs, and who then suborns perjury and tampers with witnesses. That is a fair system of justice.
Mitch should come down on her with the full force of Turtle Power.
The Alaska voters are a national embarrassment. What idiots.
Heard some of her commentary last night. Fidiot!
