If that the incredible is not too many times, I imagine a life coach about just being broadcast on the BBC with such interest in the result which cut he seen some interesting voting patterns, we see, if example, Joe manchin, The Identical West Virginia voting. I had to confirm, but we will see I send send it to the center at about Alaska. The Republican voting against. So we’ve got a a trade-off van, so so interesting that sends it’s flaking Collins. He would both a toy opposing this sudden nomination have voted to to enclosure and nutrafol vote between cut indicated that inclined to vote for him in the final analysis. So this is only imagine looking at when we are. The Democrats are adding to the list, but suddenly this he’s looking very, very close, and I would imagine that Mitch McConnell, I might have imagined, but just to be clear. This is a procedural issue with that. The final motion on whether he should Brett Kavanaugh or should be no Nation, dance coach. At this point and against the denomination I did not so at least it’s quite a situation full, but the White House and for the Republican leadership on the senate floor. It was I indicated earlier. I would have been hopeful quite frankly, of getting this through this stage and Sunday want to get this done as quick as possible that his hopes to get a final floor vote as early as as tomorrow night. So I know it’s standing.

Washington time this is a lot of contention around it. There all barricades up at the moment around Capitol Hill to try and keep opponents protests as far away from the building as possible may not be unprecedented move. It must be sad, so it’s really is an approach that the Senate is very deadly rebalanced anyway.
