The Associated Press reports:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will receive an up-or-down vote in the Senate “in the near future.” McConnell on Monday angrily denounced Democrats, accusing them of waging a “smear campaign” against Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court.
McConnell called the latest allegation “another orchestrated, last-minute hit on the nominee” by Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh’s conservative judicial philosophy. McConnell says “Democrats won’t let a complete lack of evidence get between them and a good smear. It’s despicable.”
