McConnell also promised to confirm more judicial nominees in the near future, continuing Trump's crusade to fill the courts with principled conservative judges.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has assured Republicans that Kavanaugh will not be torpedoed by an unsubstantiated 35-year-old sexual assault allegation. "We're going to plow right through it," he told supporters at the Values Voters Summit on Friday.
Unwavering in his support of Kavanaugh, the Senate leader said "President Trump has nominated a stunningly successful individual," while asking his fellow colleagues to "wait out the obstruction" that Democrats have forged.
"You’ve watched the fight. You’ve watched the tactics. But here’s what I want to tell you: in the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court," said McConnell, prompting the crowd to thunderously applaud.
The Senate Majority Leader asked that people not lose heart and "keep the faith."
