maneuver to cover Kavanaugh’s ass

…We get an opportunity to see how the TRUMP owned Senate and Kavanaugh’s handlers like, loyalist AZ  “fill-in” Senator Joh Kyl, will maneuver to cover Kavanaugh’s ass and load the hearing to make damn sure they can cut-off, limit, interrupt, do whatever they feel is necessary to make Dr. Ford out to be an idiot, male hater, liar… GOP cannot afford to have an open honest hearing so this will be most interesting…

All-Male Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans Schedule Hearing for Kavanaugh Accuser – There’s Just One Major Problem

The all-male Republican majority of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday agreed to allow federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh and the woman accusing him of sexual assault and attempted rape, California professor Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, to testify.

They announced that next Monday, Dr. Blasey Ford and Judge Kavanaugh will testify before the Committee.

There’s just one problem.  …..   They assumed she would on command.

Dr. Blasey Ford hasn’t said she is able to drop her work as a law professor and travel literally across the country to testify before the Senators, with just one week’s notice.

"Fox is told that the majority on the Senate Judiciary Committee last night reached out to counsel for Christine Ford to invite her to Monday’s additional hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But she has not responded as yet," Fox News congressional reporter Chad Pergram revealed Tuesday morning.

Note that "last night" is after they announced she would testify at next Monday’s hearing.

The all-male group of Senators just assumed Blasey Ford would be able to drop everything because they scheduled a hearing and said she would be there.

Despite all we know about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh—including that he is a perpetrator of sexual violence—not a single Republican senator has publicly opposed him.

This is not a time to play partisan politics. This is a time to believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who decided to share her story in her own words on Sunday. Our senators, regardless of party affiliation, urgently need to unite in solidarity with Dr. Ford and with all survivors who are mocked, disbelieved, and shamed when they come forward.

The Senate needs to get this right, and right now it is failing

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled next Monday for a hearing on Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh when they were in high school.

While there does need to be a hearing, this is yet again another example of GOP leadership steamrolling the Kavanaugh nomination without all the facts being made available to senators. GOP leadership is setting up this Monday hearing to be another public spectacle like the Anita Hill hearings were in 1991, and that is unfair to Christine Blasey Ford, Brett Kavaaugh, and the Senate. These fools have learned nothing in the intervening years.

Lat week Senator Dianne Feinstein referred the letter of Christine Blasey Ford to the FBI for further background investigation. All 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee signed a letter dated Monday morning urging Grassley to postpone the committee vote, urging that an FBI investigation should conclude before Kavanaugh’s nomination proceeds. Democrats call to delay Kavanaugh committee vote, after accuser comes forward.

The problem is that for judicial background checks, the client is not the Senate but the White House. And the White House Hasn’t Asked FBI to Vet Kavanaugh Allegations, Sources Say:

The White House hasn’t asked the FBI to investigate the allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman when they were in high school, a request required for the bureau to take further action, according to two people familiar with the matter.
