The two major moves in the Kavanaugh nomination for SCOTUS today were:
The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance the vote to the full Senate.
Here are more details from USA Today.
Put the two initiatives together, and there you have a way to tame both the GOP and Democrats.
The midterms are coming. The GOP can't afford to be perceived as unconcerned about women's issues.
Meanwhile, even her critics will concede that Christine Ford made a compelling presentation of both the details of the alleged attack and herself at the hearing yesterday.
Since there will be an investigation by the FBI, Kavanaugh's career could still be totally derailed.
If he goes down so do many others in the loop. They range from former Jones Day partner Don McGahn, now head lawyer in the White House, to Yale Law professor Amy Chau.
In addition, one wonders if, in the worst case scenario, the Trump White House can do a Houdini and wiggle out of this hit to its brand?
Another possible issue: Should the FBI turn up evidence of a sexual assault in Maryland, which has no statute of limitations on such crimes, will Ford press charges?
