Senate Judiciary Committee Reschedules Potential Kavanaugh Vote for Friday Morning (UPDATE)
The committee vote on Brett Kavanaugh is being set for this Friday.
The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford is still set for Thursday, though Ford’s legal team yesterday raised objections to the committee’s plans for questioning.
The committee is rescheduling its vote on Kavanaugh for the next day:

And the final vote would likely take place soon after that.
UPDATE –– 6:47 pm ET: Chairman Chuck Grassley tweeted out this clarification:
Judic Cmte noticed POTENTIAL exec mtg for Friday. Still taking this 1 step at a time. After hrg Dr Ford & Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony- if we‘re ready to vote, we will vote. If we aren’t ready, we won’t. Cmte rules normally require 3 days notice so we‘re following regular order
