CNN reported Thursday evening that GOP Sens. Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Jeff Flake — all key votes Republicans will need to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court — were meeting with Sen. Joe Manchin after a marathon hearing featuring Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh.
The New York Times apologized and took down a tweet Thursday asking readers to weigh in on whether Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee was “credible.” The poll asked for readers to respond “yes,” “no” or “unsure.”
We're sorry for this tweet. In retrospect, a Twitter poll is insensitive in light of the gravity of this hearing. We've deleted it. pic.twitter.com/4CqRhkuCat
