1) Democrats have driven the argument over his confirmation since day 1 of the hearings when they flagrantly interrupted committee proceedings and paid no price.
2) Dr. Ford's allegations seriously jeopardize Kavanaugh's nomination. But Ramirez's allegation, published a day after Ford 'committed' to Thursday's hearing, has had the effect of rallying conservative grassroots behind Kavanaugh.
3) Republicans now find themselves in the position of having to proceed with confirmation process—including an up-or-down vote after Thursday—or risk the collapse of grassroots support weeks before midterm elections.
Prediction: #Kavanaugh will withdraw his nomination tomorrow, claiming he was smeared and is completely innocent, but must withdraw out of consideration for his family yada yada yada. 1/4
Of course he has denied everything so far: that is what he must say as long as his nomination stands. But what he is saying privately to the WH and Rs in Congress must be quite different. 2/4
Rs probably suspected from the outset that the nomination was vulnerable for the reasons that have become crystal clear to us in the last several days, but I doubt they realized just how BAD it was. 3/4
And #Kavanaugh has a new accuser. Amazingly enough, JUST IN TIME for the Democrats. Whew, that was close, they snuck her in under the wire. Sounds like another hatched job. Read this whole thread for a break down of the story.
"Senior Republican staffers also learned of the allegation last week and, in conversations with The NYer, expressed concern about its potential impact on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Soon after, Senate Republicans issued renewed calls to accelerate the timing of a committee vote"
"she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. "
YOU ALL KNEW THIS ENTIRE TIME!
Therapists notes dispute Ford too. Four guys. Two guys. 3 guys AND A GIRL. NO CORRABORATING EVIDENCE! You KNEW theres no there there! You coordinated this whole thing to SMEAR KAVANAUGH! This is SO wrong! Omg. How could you do this to a family? WTF
🚨I had a dream that Merrick Garland groped me. It must be from a repressed memory. I have no other details, no witnesses & no corraborating evidence but I'm positive it actually occurred. I MUST be believed. If you ask to hear from me, you're a bully & trying to silence me.
🤔Maybe Chrissy had a crush on Kavanaugh in high school. Had fantasies of him touching her boobies. Maybe it was all a dream. Maybe he never wanted anything to do w/ her, never went to a party she was at (or threw herself). Maybe Chrissy was so hurt she made him into a bad guy.
Dont ask me to fly anywhere... I dont go on airplanes. I only interned at University of Hawaii, I canoed there. When I heard Kavanaugh was nominated I was gonna move to New Zealand. Ya know, just the furthest fucking place to fly... 13.5 hour flight. That never crossed my mind🙄
2) 🌟Tomorrow🌟, #Patriots🇺🇸, I am pleading you to PLEASE ☎️CALL YOUR SENATORS!☎️ Tell them (politely) that you want them to ▶️#ConfirmKavanaugh!◀️
🔥BURN THE PHONE LINES!🔥

That date was 7/10/2018. Given that all domains were registered through GoDaddy’s anonymous registration service, WHOIS doesn’t tell us much. But the site is copywritten to @judicialnetwork, so we know they’re involved. Let’s take a look at the page source for the .com site:
Notice something? A template created for a Gorsuch themed site is being used for #Kavanaugh. Was there a confirmgorsuch(.)com too? Blank page currently, but sure enough one was setup 12/19/2016. And taken down 7/9/2018. Well, when did confirmkavanaugh(.)com go live?
Negotiations for a while seemed to be productive and hopeful. Then the WH, #Kavanaugh, McConnell, the Federalist Society et al. freaked b/c they were losing control and things were going south. (My take)
BREAKING: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein denies a NYT report that he suggested last year he secretly record Trump to expose chaos in the administration. According to the Times Rosenstein also floated the idea of trying to remove Trump through the 25th Amendment. apnews.com/e84a4acdb42641…
Rod Rosenstein should know better than to joke about something like the 25th Amendment. Especially in the era of Trump.
