Sen. Jeff Flake has finally announced whether or not he’ll be voting in favor of confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and thankfully, the answer is a resounding yes.
Flake released a statement Friday morning outlining his intention to vote for the embattled nominee.
When Dr. Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh surfaced two weeks ago, I insisted that she be allowed to testify before the committee moved to a vote. Yesterday, we heard compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh. I wish that I could express the confidence that some of my colleagues have conveyed about what either did or did not happen in the early 1980s, but I left the hearing yesterday with as much doubt as certainty.
What I do know is that our system of justice affords a presumption of innocence to the accused, absent corroborating evidence. That is what binds us to the rule of law. While some may argue that a different standard should apply regarding the Senate’s advice and consent responsibilities, I believe that the constitution’s provisions of fairness and due process apply here as well.
I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.
This is fantastic news as it means we’re that much closer to ensuring that Kavanaugh will be placed on the bench during the vote next week.
The left has done everything in their power to try and make it to where a conservative will not sit on the court, as they are desperate to cling to the right to murder the unborn. It’s sick and twisted, but hey, that’s leftism for you, right?
