Several Republican governors stunned the GOP by siding with Democrats over delaying the vote on Supreme Court hopeful Brett Kavanaugh.
The three governors — Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, John Kasich of Ohio, and Larry Hogan of Maryland — did not even want to hear what Judge Brett Kavanaugh had to say before expressing their sentiments.
Like most Democrats, these three governors appeared to believe Kavanaugh was guilty until proven innocent.
The judge had not even been afforded the opportunity to defend himself against the claims when Moe, Larry, and Curly called for a delaying of the vote.
Their call came after Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, ordered a vote for Friday morning.
When the vote was announced, Democrats went off the deep end, but it was all grandstanding.
The fact is that Senate procedures demand Grassley schedule the hearing three days out.
What everyone failed to mention was Grassley had also said if need be, the vote would be delayed.
He was just following procedure — period.
The FBI Investigation
Something that was uttered during the hearing as well as from these three governors was the need for the FBI investigation.
This is, of course, more grandstanding.
An investigation was conducted, but the Democrats refused to participate.
Statements were given under penalty of perjury by those mentioned by accuser Christine Blasey Ford — and every one of them disagreed with her.
All of those statements were included with the FBI report given to the senators prior to Thursday’s hearing.
According to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), he was told by someone within the FBI that there was nothing else the FBI could do.
They had no date. They had no location. They had no witnesses. What else was there for them to investigate?
The governors that stood against Kavanaugh are a disgrace.
All they were really doing was pandering to Democrats in their own state but, in the process, they have undoubtedly lost the support of voters within their own party.
