You knew this was coming. We all knew this was coming.

When asked Tuesday if a Friday vote on Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh would give senators enough time to review the FBI report of the Bureau’s investigation into sexual misconduct claims made against him, Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said a Friday vote would be “too soon.”

“Well, I believe it is. I believe it’s too soon,” Feinstein said. “It’s Tuesday and we have to put all the facts together.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has vowed that the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week, but Democrats were always going to complain and demand another delay.

First the Democrats said the country needed a “one week” investigation before a vote.

Now “one week” is too soon. The goalposts are moving again.
