Rush Limbaugh says the Senate should schedule a confirmation vote on Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, for next week and not wait until the fall.

Limbaugh made his comments on his radio show on Monday – hours before Trump announced he was selecting Kavanaugh.

But Limbaugh made it clear his call for a quick confirmation vote applied to any of those who were under consideration for the high court.

"I think rather than the individual that is chosen — and you can disagree with this — but to me the important factor here is getting confirmed," he said. "And the soonest, because that's crucial. This has to happen before the Democrats get to go home for two months and campaign and start destroying whoever this nominee is."

Limbaugh called for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley R-Iowa, to "schedule the hearing and a floor vote next week."

"Schedule it for when the Democrats think they're going home to campaign," he said. "Do not let them get out of town to start campaigning and destroying whoever the nominee is before the hearings have even begun.

"We need to stop pretending the Democrats are interested in good faith. We need to stop pretending the Democrats are interested in a legitimate investigation of a nominee's record.

"They don't care a whit about that. They're gonna lie about it. They're gonna expand upon it. They're gonna make it up if they have to."

McConnell said earlier the Senate will vote this fall on Trump's nominee. However, Limbaugh said that is not soon enough.

"But my point is that what has to happen is the confirmation process needs to start immediately," he said. "We control it. We won the election. We control the Senate. This nomination and confirmation process needs to start.

"It needs to be kept on pace, and it needs to be done so the Democrats have to stay in Washington, don't get to go home and start hearing it from everybody and start trashing this nominee because that's going to happen anyway."
