Members of the GOP are finally showing a little backbone.
As liberal protestors and Democrats in office continue to apply pressure to the GOP, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the party will not waver in its support of SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
We Won’t Be Intimidated
At the behest of Democrats in office, liberals are pulling out every tactic they have in their collective playbooks to go after conservatives and Republicans in office.
Last week, a video went viral of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) being confronted at a restaurant.
Another video went viral right before the Senate vote showing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) being confronted in an elevator.
Meanwhile, Democrats and high-powered liberal entertainers are encouraging people to confront and protest Kavanaugh at every opportunity.
It has gotten so bad, in fact, that many GOP members of Congress and the Senate are now being guarded to protect them from potential assaults when they are walking around the Capitol building.
But Sen. McConnell is not having it.
“We’ll not be intimidated by these people,” he said. “There’s no chance in the world they’re going to scare us from doing our duty.”
In a “normal” political cycle, accusations like the ones made against Kavanaugh may have convinced Senate members to ask the president to nominate someone else.
But there is nothing “normal” about the Trump era of politics.
And with at least three accusations against Kavanaugh — none of which have been substantiated by witnesses — this is anything but a “normal” confirmation cycle.
Republicans have had enough of these attempts to thwart Kavanaugh’s confirmation, however, and their continuous support of the nominee is proof of that.
Like McConnell said, the GOP won’t be backing down any time soon.
