The battle is not yet lost... there may be a minor reprieve. This makes it more important than ever to contact your Senators and make your opinion known.

Although the Senate Judiciary committee approved Kavanaugh's nomination to be sent to the full Senate floor, it was done so with a non-legally binding caveat.

"...moderate Republican Senator Jeff Flake called for an FBI investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against the judge before a final Senate vote. Flake's dramatic intervention means a final Senate vote on the nomination could be delayed for up to a week... if Republican Senate leaders agree to his demand."

The Senate lead by hardliner Mitch McConnell does not have to delay the vote. However, Senator Flake has indicated that he would not be comfortable approving Kavanaugh if an FBI investigation is not performed.

Only Donald Trump can officially request the FBI to act, so it's up to Senate Leader McConnell (if he is inclined) to suggest the President do so.

If an investigation is not held, it will signal the administration's lack of concern for victims of sexual abuse and the integrity of The United States Supreme Court.

The original article continues below.

"Rape is the most under-reported crime;63% of sexual assaults are not reported to police... Only 12% of child sexual abuse is reported to the authorities..."

Why the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing is likely to cause an even greater decrease in reporting sexual assault!

The September 27th hearings were just what one would expect. A Republican ploy to dupe Americans into believing they were fair and just.

By now most of the nation those who care, are aware of the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. At this point and very possibly never will we know exactly what transpired between Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford. It was a long time ago.

While it would be great to see justice done, there are times it just doesn't happen the way we'd like!

Christine Blasey Ford with great courage testified before the Republican led Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27th. With nothing to gain other than her belief that Brett Kavanaugh is undeserving of becoming an Associate Justice of The Supreme Court she gave testimony that he attempted to rape her when they were both in High School.

She swore this happened. Judge Brett Kavanaugh swore it didn't.
