HAPPENING TODAY: Committee hearing for Kavanaugh


After a marathon day of testimony, committee vote is set for 9:30 a.m. today on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the supreme court. However, the decision to move forward staunchly is opposed by some.

The American Bar Association is calling on the senate judiciary committee to postpone the consideration of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Until an I investigation into the sexual assault allegations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is completed.

In a strongly worded letter obtained by CNN Thursday, the organization says it's making the extraordinary request "because of the ABA's respect for the rule of law and due process under law".

The association siding with concerns voiced by senate democrats since Ford's decades-old allegations became public.

Today's proposed committee vote coming after nine hours of emotional testimony from Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school.

The committee is made up of eleven republicans and ten democrats.

But it's the votes from three republican senators and one democratic Senator could be key.

As of yesterday... Senators Susan Collins, Lisa MurkowskI, Jeff Flake and Joe Manchin were undecided.

During yesterday's hearing, protesters rallied in LA showing support for Dr. Ford.

On twitter, President Trump says "Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him. His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting. Democrats' search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. The senate must vote.
