Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell speaks about new claims against the Supreme Court, judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Senate Republican leaders on Monday to unload Democrats, on their revived efforts to push the college-era allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme court, Brett Kavanaugh, with Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, accusing them of engaging in “not normal political behavior.”

McConnell, R-Ky., the Senate took place on Monday afternoon to decry what he described as the well-known “pattern” to which Kavanaugh’s accusations: “shoot first, then correct the facts later.”

He accused to the benefit of the Democrats, ” the rush,” the new allegations and “hysterical” are calling for his impeachment, but claimed that a majority of the senators were right to confirm him in the past year. He accused Democrats, the deployment of the “politics of personal destruction” in their handling of the two groups of allegations.


“It’s just so transparent and self-serving today,” McConnell said. In his blistering floor speech, he went on to rebuke several Senate Democrats in a last letter, urged the Supreme Court to “self-heal” or face restructuring – was widely considered to be a threat of court-packing.

“That said, there is no normal political behavior,” McConnell.

South Carolina Republican sen. Lindsey Graham, the Chairman of the legal Committee, assembled one of the most passionate defence of Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing, calling the attacks “beyond the pale.”

“My heart goes out to justice, the family, Kavanaugh forced to endure this ridiculous therapy,” he tweeted.

Many of the Democrats seeking to unseat, President of Trump in the year 2020 charges over the weekend in published statements calling for Congress Kavanaugh, citing The New York Times: “the reporting of the disputed allegation of sexual misconduct. But Graham insisted that that happens.

“As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I promise Kavanaugh you justice, will not be indicted, about these bizarre accusations,” Graham tweeted.

Late Sunday, the had revised his portrait of one of the blockbuster story is the fact that several friends of the alleged victim said she told them she could not the reported sexual assaults in question remind heard.

California, Sr., Kamala Harris, said over the weekend that Kavanaugh “must be prosecuted,” in a new tweet Monday, and writes: “The reality of Kavanaugh’s confirmation process is that it lacked any integrity — there has never been a meaningful investigation of these allegations. We need the truth.”

The Times piece by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, argues that Kavanaugh’s classmates from the Clinton-connected non-profit CEO, Max Stier, “saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down to another drunken dorm party, where friends, pushed his penis in the hand of a student.”

Former housing and urban development Secretary Julian Castro has the answer: “It is clearer than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. Should he be indicted. And the Congress should consider the failure of the Department of Justice to investigate to correct the matter.”

Massachusetts sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote: “in the Last year, the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him Confirmation is not interfere with discharge, and these latest revelations. As the man who appointed him, accused Kavanaugh should.”


While 2020 Democrats, calls not back down from their charges, in spite of the times, revision, top Democrats in Congress, appeared less eager.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-NY, seemed to start to brush from his party calls for impeachment proceedings against Kavanaugh said on a radio show on Monday: “We have our hands full with the impeachment of the President now.”

Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, told reporters: “I say nothing about Kavanaugh now.”
