Surprise! Before Brett Kavanaugh has been able to defend himself from accusations before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) says she doesn’t understand how any Republicans “could possibly vote for Brett Kavanaugh.”

During the first break in the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford on Thursday, who has accused Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, Gillibrand discussed Ford's testimony before lawmakers.

“The testimony is incredibly heartfelt, honest, deliberative and effective,” Gillibrand told reporters. “And I don’t know how any of my Republican colleagues could – after hearing her tell her story- could only not believe her, but could possibly vote for Brett Kavanaugh.”

I would say it’s surprising that Gillibrand has already made her decision…except that she said similar things before she ever heard Ford’s testimony before the committee.

Last week Gillibrand told reporters that Ford is concerned that Kavanaugh “will do terrible things for America (‘s) women.”

“I believe her because she is telling the truth.”

Gillibrand will clearly hear what Judge Kavanaugh has to say on the allegations with an open mind, don't you think?
