Watch: McConnell Whines That GOP Senators ‘Were Literally Under Assault’ For Supporting Kavanaugh
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) complained on Monday that him and his Republican colleagues had to withstand “assaults” for deciding to vote on confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court after he was accused by multiple women of sexual assault.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the Senate Republican Conference. We were standing up for the presumption of innocence in this country … And secondly, we were literally under assault,” McConnell said at a press conference in Kentucky on Monday. “These demonstrators, I’m sure some of them were well-meaning citizens. But many of them were obviously trying to get in our faces, to go to our homes. Basically almost attack us in the halls of the capitol.
“There was a full-scale effort to intimidate.”
Kavanaugh was confirmed after a very subtle and restricted FBI investigation was conducted with a very small margin of 50-48.
