Mitch McConnell is currently complaining about:

✔️ Dr. Ford
✔️ Senate Dems
✔️ Senator Feinstein
✔️ The resistance

And is also trying to claim Senate Dems betrayed Dr. Ford, by leaking to the press.

Call your Senators to say NO to Kavanaugh. 202-224-3121.
McConnell is currently praising the integrity of Chuck Grassley, and letting loose on Senate Democrats.

Is also criticizing the veracity of Dr. Ford's story, and trying to paint her as unreasonable for having accommodation requests.
McConnell: "But the smear campaign didn't just stop there!"

McConnell is now trying to smear @RonanFarrow @JaneMayerNYer's New Yorker story about Deborah Rodriguez. Claiming the allegation is so thin, NYT refused to run the Rodriguez story.
IDK about any of you, but I 100% would not want to get out the bad side of @RonanFarrow and @JaneMayerNYer.

I feel like that's just asking for them to start digging, and I'm confident neither McConnell NOR Elaine Chao's hands are clean.
Basically: the 1 major takeaway from McConnell's current rant on the floor?

The GOP are going to force the #Kavanaugh nomination forward. They're not going to stop. We 100% have to keep doing everything in our power to bring Kavanaugh down.

Call. Your. Senators. 202-224-3121
Mitch McConnell just swore on the floor, Kavanaugh will get a floor vote. So again: call your Senators.

But you know what else will piss Mitch McConnell off? IF THE SENATE FLIPS TO DEMOCRATIC CONTROL.
As I've said non-stop for the last two years: we can take the Senate, if we hold every single incumbent, and then flip two. The GOP only have a very narrow margin of control right now.

Per @FiveThirtyEight:…
Here's my write-up here:…
If you're as pissed about Mitch McConnell as I am, here's who you focus your time and $ on:

1. @McCaskill4MO
2. @jontester
3. @JoeforIndiana
4. @HeidiHeitkamp
5. @NelsonForSenate
6. @kyrstensinema
7. @PhilBredesen
8. @RosenforNevada
9. @espyforsenate
If I'm not naming Senators on the @Roadto18 list or candidates like @BetoORourke, it's because I know they already have a certain amount of attention on them, or they're polling better than my list of 9.

These 9 especially need our help. Polls continue to be close 40+ days out.
Support them, help flip the Senate and bonus: you'll piss Mitch McConnell off.

If you're tired of watching the Senate GOP majority constantly railroading items like Judge Kavanaugh's nomination through, this is a key critical way to help.
