The Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to rush the confirmation vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. However, Chuck Grassley, the GOP leader of the Senate Judiciary committee, is delaying the vote one week until September 20.

Meanwhile, intense lobbying efforts by senators, citizens and special interests are working to change undecided votes.

Breaking news today has added a new twist to the debate over Kavanaugh. Here’s the scoop from Buzzfeed News,

Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have referred a letter concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the FBI.

The contents of the letter have been closely guarded by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, as well as California Rep. Anna Eshoo, who originally received the letter and shared it with Feinstein, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Senator Feinstein has confirmed the news. No other involved parties are giving details.

Six Dem senators are undecided, and a No vote from any one of them will almost certainly mean Kavanaugh is confirmed as an Associate Supreme Court Justice.
