White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had a blunt message for Democrats obstructing the Kavanaugh vote: “Get out of the way.”
When asked about the completion of the FBI report and its content, Sanders said, “Our position has been pretty consistent. We stand 100 percent with Brett Kavanaugh.”
She continued, “The information that was asked and requested by senators has now been provided and, as Chairman Grassley said in a statement earlier this morning now that they have that information, it’s time for the Senate to vote and time for them to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”
Grassley said in a statement that the FBI report contained no new information and called for a vote.
Sanders was asked about Democrats demanding that the FBI interview more people, including Dr. Ford. Sanders dismissed the notion, saying Democrats need to get out of the way.
“Look, I think one of the biggest and most telling parts of this process is all of the Democrats that are coming out claiming that they want to see more — are Democrats that have already pledged and promised to vote no. They don’t actually want more information. It’s a total sham and they need to get out of the way and stop playing politics.”
