Collins and Flake and Manchin to vote yes so Kav gets in.
Manchin is a red State Democrat.

But I don’t think this is the end of it.

I see Chuck Grassley is now engaging in a well worn anti-semitic dog whistle by claiming that protestors against Bart O'Kavanaugh's nomination are funded by George Soros.

There literally is no bottom to the Republican cesspit.

And never mind that Republicans have actually paid people to protest against democracy.

https://www.politico.com/gallery/2012/06/16-worst-political-dirty-tricks/000188-002245-fullscreen.html

Trump is promoting that one too.

Plus he was mocking Al Franken for doing the decent thing and resigning his Senate seat over sexual harrassment allegations.

But hey, he's a fighter... or something...
I don't recall any Republicans on this forum complaining that Franken was "innocent until proven guilty".

That's because sexual harrassment, along with rape and sexual assault, are now partisan issues as far as Rapeublicans are concerned.

But hey, Democrats are "isolating themselves" by demanding higher moral standards of public representatives.

It makes you think about what sort of people Republicans are trying to appeal to, actually it doesn't at all - we already know exactly what type of people they're trying to appeal to.

Some of them even post here.
al Franken was filmed feeling up some girl who was asleep then he was defended by Katz ms fords attorney who also defended Bill Clinton and said Paula jones was a lying tr**p , you couldn’t make it up
Al Franken correctly resigned.

Were you calling for the "innocent until proven guilty" standard to be upheld in his case?

Any chance of an answer?

Ironic that you say "you couldn't make it up", since making up stuff is the one thing Republicans are very good at doing.

This is more important than whatever the latest wage rises are. The GOP is a tool of the plutocrats. So is the Federalist Society. Kavanaugh will work for them. This is how Rome collapsed.

Could you answer the question, please?

Were you calling for Al Franken to be deemed innocent until proven guilty?

What about Harvey Weinstein?

Were you calling for him to be deemed innocent until proven guilty?

If they couldn't come out in 2016 they won't come out now. Expect it to be roughly as you were after November.

all cases are different and need to be viewed as such with the presumption of innocence unless it’s on camera like Al Franken

Amazing stuff. Susan Collins called for Al Franken to resign.

I guess it's totally different because Bart O'Kavanagh is a Republican nominee.

The transparent hypocrisy is astounding.

Some comments were elaborate, lengthy and loaded with a moral message. Others, like that of Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, were straight to the point.
"Al Franken should resign," she simply tweeted.
Within the next 90 minutes, 16 Democrats -- 10 of them women -- and one Republican senator -- Susan Collins of Maine -- had publicly urged their colleague to vacate his seat.

Yeah, mate, I've already got your point. If it's a Democrat they should resign, if it's a Republican, ah, shure 'tis grand.

The comments underneath this tweet from Peterson's alt-right cultist followers are very funny. They feel betrayed.  ;D

Maybe it’s because there wasn’t a single solitary shred of evidence in the Kavanaugh situation, but feel free to believe whatever you want. Interesting that the therapists notes have never been released......supposedly she said she was a LATE teen and was attacked by 4 people instead of 2

Three accusers, two of them not even interviewed, at least a score of corroborating witnesses not interviewed and others with information stonewalled on the instruction of Trump.

But none of that is "evidence", apparently.

A sham investigation designed to get a sham result that the sham president who designed it wanted.

Which is clear evidence of a brazen cover up.

Which, predictably, you approve of. It's by Republicans, after all.

In an interview to be a Supreme Court justice, he lied . . . . under OATH.  That’s right, a judge! That should have disqualified him on the spot.

It was not a trial, just an interview, so the standard was not “beyond a reasonable doubt,” but was, as Collins pointed out, simply whom do you believe more?  With a legion of other viable candidates, he should simply have been turned down.
