Ford's demands are out

Dr Ford's attorneys have submitted their list of demands to the Senate, demands that must be met if she agrees to testify. Some are absolutely reasonable (there must be adequate security).

Some are laughable, absurd, asinine. Ford says that Kavanaugh must testify first. Then she will testify.

In other words, Ford is demanding that Kavanaugh NOT BE ALLOWED to respond, under oath, to the specifics of her allegation. She is demanding that Kavanaugh not be allowed to confront his accuser, not even to confront her accusation. She expects him to testify, without knowing the details of her accusation. How do you defend yourself against an accusation, without knowing the specifics of what you've been accused of?

Are these people insane?

Earth to Professor Ford, you aren't the one who dictates these protocals. They probably made the list asinine enough to ensure that the Senate refuses, then they can go on the attack, saying that the Judiciary committee didn't care enough about Dr Ford to agree to her simple demands.

Another demand, that she and Kavanaugh each only be allowed to speak for the same exact amount of time? How does that make any sense?

It's pretty impressive to see how Ford's attorney is out maneuvering the Republican Senators.

he probably gets confirmed next week, then weíll see how
much the voters hold the gop accountable for rushing, and how much they hold the democrats responsible for this farce.

Meanwhile feinstein, who started all of this, is backpedaling, making sure we all know that she isnít saying the accusation is truthful.

Rumour is the Republicans have made a counter offer.
Maybe she is a great negotiator also

if you have an actual hearing instead of a charade you wouldn't have these problems.

Charade, huh? The Republicans are trying to get Ford to testify, they even agreed to fly to CA and do it on her home. Not good enough.

The accuser cannot remember WHAT YEAR the assault took place, or at what location. That's the charade.

Yes, it is a charade when the FBI can investigate (like they did with A Hill) but the Pres. won't ask them too. Looks like McConnell is waiting for the "hearing" to make his mind up (HAHAHAHA)

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell clearly doesn’t think the sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh will be anything more than a stumbling block on his path to confirmation to the Supreme Court.

“President Trump has nominated a stunningly successful individual. You’ve watched the fight. You’ve watched the tactics, but here’s what I want to tell you: in the very near future Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court,” the Kentucky Republican said."

But I thought you Republicans are so much better than the Democrats. And what does that have to do with the hearing being a charade?

So you're more concerned with a little dramatization over the Republicans impeding the job of the judicial committee?

feinstein held onto the letter for weeks, the democrats leaked her name to the media, the gop has postponed twice to accommodate Ford, any of that wrong?

Women who attended Christine Blasey Ford's high school have delivered a letter in support of her to senators as she faces scrutiny over her accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted when they were teens.


Organizers say more than 1,000 women from the school signed the letter. The women say they believe Ford, calling her accusation "all too consistent with stories we heard and lived" while going to the Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland.

Some of the women who signed the letter delivered it personally Thursday to Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, a West Virginia Republican who also graduated from the Holton-Arms School.

Alumna Alexis Goldstein says word of the letter spread through social media and personal networks. She describes Ford as courageous.

Kavanaugh has denied Ford's accusation.

Trump shows his empathy again stating if she had endured such an assault, she surely would have reported it to police or her parents. Either he is just clueless, or as I suspect, he doesnít fing care; itís all about getting his man seated. Having first hand experience I know women and men (just ask the Catholic Church) who suffer sexual assaults routinely donít tell anyone. You think his comments about what happened at school stayed in school might be telling?

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio

The bar is low, Wayne. Shall we do comparison's on stupid things Dem politicians have said regarding this?

Ya know, OccupyDems, Infowars and Russian Bots, like a stopped clock, can still be occasionally correct. Does not make them right, or good and fair arbiters of truth and justice.
