Ok, all. It's officially Wednesday, so here's what's next w/ #Kavanaugh.

1. The FBI investigation will likely be concluded today. The report will likely be filed (TBD) w/o an interview Dr. Ford, or classmates listed by Deborah Ramirez, and no Julie Swetnick.
E.g. A story covering how the FBI won't interview Dr. Ford. cnbc.com/2018/10/02/fbi…

In other words, we can hope for the best when it comes to the investigation, but we're mostly likely going to get the worst.
There's also debate on whether the report will be released to the public. Mitch McConnell says hell no. Other Senators disagree. Keep this in mind for some of our next steps.

2. McConnell has said there will be a vote this week. In order for him to do so, he has to file a motion to end debate on the nomination. This will likely take place today.

Here's a NBC article explaining exactly how this process will play out. nbcnews.com/politics/congr…
🚨 3. Which means the final vote will likely take place on Friday or Saturday🚨

Make sure you mark this down, and make sure your friends/families/colleagues are aware of this timeline too.

We have VERY limited time, and we need to make sure everyone's all on the same page.
4. So your job? Continue calling your Senators. This will fall into four categories:

- The Democrats who have already said yes, and won't flip no matter what.
- The red state Democrats.
- The potential GOP flips.
- The GOP senators who will vote yes, no matter what.
a. For those with Dem Senators who have already said yes, and won't flip no matter what.

* Call and affirm you support their votes and their work.
* Encourage they keep fighting, and persuade their colleagues, a la how Coons (sort of) persuaded Flake.

Script.
B. For those with specific red state Democrats - Donnelly, Tester, Nelson, Manchin, Heitkamp

* For Donnelly/Tester/Nelson, call and confirm you support their no votes. They're definitely getting hell from conservatives.

* For Manchin/Heitkamp: Push for no votes.

Scripts.
Remember: all of these senators are in tight races. If they're already said they'll vote no on Kavanaugh, donate to their races.

Donnelly: secure.actblue.com/donate/donate-…

Tester: secure.actblue.com/contribute/pag…

Nelson: secure.actblue.com/donate/nelson_…
I would also strongly encourage a donation to Heitkamp, because she's down in the polls. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

But I understand waiting. However, if you want to donate now:

Heitkamp: secure.actblue.com/contribute/pag…

Manchin: secure.actblue.com/donate/joe-man…
C. For those represented by potential GOP flips: Flake, Murkowski, Collins.

I don't trust Jeff Flake, but encourage him to vote No anyway. Both Collins and Murkowski have made specific moves which seem to suggest they're not comfortable w/ how this has played out.

Scripts.
Remember, if Collins DOESN'T represent you, you can have a significant impact still, by donating here.

crowdpac.com/campaigns/3874…

Right now, the total is $1,789,524. Can we get to $2 million?
D. For those represented by GOP Senators, who will vote yes, even if Kavanaugh tries to shoot someone:

* Call anyway.
* But you're in a unique position to yell @ them and have it count

(My script toes the line of campaign talk; adjust as needed)

Script.
This is especially true for the GOP members of Senate Class 2, or those up in 2020. Some on this list might end up retiring in the near future.

But if they do run? You'll remember. senate.gov/senators/Class…

6. As always pick an incumbent Senate Democrat to support.

We're less than fifty days out, and IF you want this to stop, IF you want Mitch McConnell to no longer have power, this is the fastest way to do it.

7. If you're a DC resident who wants to get involved, follow and contact @HerdOnHill, sharpish.

They help deliver letters for constituents to critical senators. This is another way to help facilitate contact to key swing votes, even if they don't represent you.
8. Don't forget to continue to call your state legislatures about state-level protections on areas that might come under threat IF Kavanaugh is confirmed to the bench, e.g. abortion.

Thread:
🚨 I can't stress enough: we need all hands on deck. If seated, Kavanaugh would be THE swing vote on many cases, and as a relatively young Justice, he'd be there for generations.

Don't sit this out. Don't assume a Justice Kavanaugh can be impeached. We need you NOW. 🚨
As usual, call tips.

* Don't call Senators who don't represent you.
* At this point, it doesn't matter if you call DC or district offices. Just try to through however you can. Try EVERY number.
* If you can't call, email/fax/use Resistbot. Just make contact.
