Do you think Brett Kavanaugh Will be Confirmed? or Not?

After the women have alleged he assaulted them, do you think he will or will not be confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice? I am not asking if you think that he did or did not commit these assaults, rather do you think he will still be confirmed? Or do you think this will damage his chances?

I am watching the hearings now, and I have no idea. A sad state of affairs this is. Sure is wise for someone not to run for public office due to their name possibly being dragged through the mud whether guilty or not.

You are so right about that Deborah. One would want to keep out of the limelight these days. People can be very underhanded and stop at nothing to ruin a person when they have some counter agenda.

@Corbin5 And it's supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. Many don't seem to care if it's true or not. They hate Trump so much.

Yes I was wondering if there would be bets. I canĀ“t say at this point if I think he will or wont be confirmed. Could go either way.

@Courage7 he probably still will get the role despite his offences. The Republicans are disregarding many of the allegations levelled at him and not summoning vital witnesses

I watched the entire hearing from morning until it was over in late afternoon. I can't make a prediction. But I hope he will be confirmed. I believe in due process and innocent until proven guilty. If an accusation with no supporting evidence can keep someone from being confirmed, our country will no longer be a just country.

Yes just as if it were a courtroom, where is the evidence indeed. I too have no sure bet on a yes or no confirmation, even after watching the day long.

I think he will be confirmed because McConnell, Graham, et al need him on the court to reverse Roe, reinstate Jim Crow, and establish the world in their favorite book and TV show, The Handmaidens Tale.

@Courage7 The GOP Senators are scared of what will happen if he is and what will happen if he isn't. They are on a fence between a brood of vipers and a pit of crocodiles. No matter which way they fall, they are done for. But if they get him on the court, their dream of an America where rich white men control everything, poor whites do all the work, and POC are relegated to sub-citizen status will be that much closer.

@Courage7 I really think it is a scripted Democrat attack on an innocent man, just because it pains the Democrats so badly that Trump nominated him and they hate Trump with a passion.

I think she was assaulted, but not by him. Her best friend even disputed what she said. Most of the coverage was so appalling because here people are supposed to be innocent until found guilty. The haters just automatically jump on it and they don't care if it's true or not. I do think he will be confirmed and then he should sue for slander.
