A short rope for one to hang self with. Dems should just allow the slow drip of poison to do it’s work here.

Public Hearing Scheduled With Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Ford.
The announcement of the hearing comes just a day after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward publicly with allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school. buzzfeednews.com/amphtml/tarini…
Persons who work for the federal judiciary who have important stories to tell about disgraced former Chief Judge Kozinski, and Kavanaugh...but fear retaliation because I have been contacted by more than a half-dozen such persons since resigned in disgrace. theintercept.com/2018/09/17/cyr…
Here come the bots...

‘One conspiracy site found a Facebook pornbot named Christine Ford that some users attacked as unqualified to be a professor, while others accused it of being an asset of the CIA’s long-defunct MK Ultra program.’ thebea.st/2pgQGek

@SenFeinstein says she would not have sent letter to the FBI if the @theintercept had not reported on it’s existence last week. ‘That initial report, in the Intercept, caught committee Democrats by surprise, who had been kept in the dark about the letter.’

So Brett Kavanaugh was never Mitch McConnell’s first choice. He just went along with what the White House wanted.
Hardiman, Coney Barrett, Thapar already all being circled as names to replace Kavanaugh.
This nominee may be stopped, but the alternatives are not pretty for Democrats.
McGahn ‘huddled’ with Kavanaugh for nine hours inside the White House today. Reporting the strategy is to allow Kavanaugh to defend himself and mute Trump. GOP already strategizing next nomination, many don’t want any hearings now, looking like a showdown. wapo.st/2QylwLI
NEW: Sen. Susan Collins says she's writing to leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee to recommend that "counsel for Prof. Ford be allocated time to question Judge Kavanaugh & counsel for the Judge be granted equal time to question Prof. Ford" at hearing abcn.ws/2D9ymNO
“I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone, because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.”

Senate Judiciary Committee will be the 21 Americans to determine who is lying.
Feinstein wants to delay judiciary hearing, “if FBI doesn’t investigate.
The important thing is to get this investigated. There was a witness there, and that was this fellow Judge....I think it should be delayed.” @SenFeinstein

Here is the letter Dems sent to FBI and McGahn.
Ex-FBI career agent Chuck Rosenberg says “this is what the FBI do... but they would have to be asked to open the investigation”.
Trump’s statement that the FBI doesn’t want to investigate the Kavanaugh accusations is another blatant lie to the American public.
Kavanaugh spokesperson now adapting story from stating he “was not even at this party” to “this was just teenage horseplay”. @CNN

This change of excuse should seal the disqualification to Senate Republicans immediately. Currently they are locked in room strategizing situation.
Dr. Christine Ford’s friend states she was told of the incident by her last year. The fact that Kavanaugh now changing, adapting his story needs to be highlighted immediately, for what worthy judge changes their excuse like this from not there to horseplay?hill.cm/NYDeGe4
All pressure in full force should be placed on these four senators from now until vote completed. These four carry all the cards in their hands, next to Mitch McConnell —

@SenatorCollins
@lisamurkowski
@JeffFlake
@SenBobCorker

One of the Kavanaugh emails released in the cache by @CoryBooker during the hearings. Now can you see why the Republicans on the committee threatened to file charges against Booker and push vote to remove him from his senate seat?
His response, “Bring it!” was warranted in full.
This situation must be utilized to push further on Kavanaugh’s shady finances and debt pay off. This chapter is far from closed. Who paid the debt? Simple question and answer, if nothing to hide. bit.ly/2No73nO
Senate panel formally postpones Kavanaugh vote 🇺🇸

Mark Judge, other man in room according to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, tells senators he won't testify. washingtontimes.com/news/2018/sep/…
Time for the @FBI to complete a full investigation on Kavanaugh, including finances and all witnesses or past aquatinted alumni. A lifetime appointment has no room for free pass, quick force through. Evidently these are the reasons republicans chose to rapidly force this process.
How fascinating, just as with Dr. Anita Hill, Dr. Christine Blasey also holds her doctorate degree, a research professor, employed by a top university.
Lest we forget how many years of hard work must be achieved to earn this level education and career.
If she were a man...
Trump, when asked questions by reporter pool at White House today, referred to the honorable @SenFeinstein as
Diane ‘Fein-steen’,
when the lying man knows full well how to pronounce her name.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford —

"a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions."
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford refuses to testify without an investigation.
"The Committee should have the completed report before any hearing occurs and we ask that you take immediate steps to make sure that we have the FBI's report before we proceed”
— Democrat senators.
New —
Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans were inside McConnell’s office today, made clear when walking out that they would vote as soon as next week if Ford doesn’t show up Monday.
Not supporting FBI investigation, as of now.
The coordination & preparation for the hearing is centered on the White House. Kavanaugh, counsel Don McGahn & other White House officials, met Monday & Tuesday for hours, monitoring news coverage, talking through strategy, as Kavanaugh phoned senators to press his case forward.
@costareports says ‘McConnell who's running it all with Grassley at his side. He'll decide. But, lawmakers are balancing several GOP goals as they plod forward: they don't want to alienate women, want to protect Kavanaugh's rep., want to keep majority.’ States GOP in ‘lockstep’.
“The invitation for Monday still stands-Dr Ford’s testimony would reflect her personal knowledge and memory of events. Nothing the FBI or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay”-Grassley
Jim Gensheimer, friend of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford releases this statement — #MeToo
‘I used to know Brett Kavanaugh pretty well. And, when I think of Brett now, in the midst of his hearings for a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court, all I can think of is the old "Aesop's Fables" adage: "A man is known by the company he keeps."’
nbcnews.com/think/opinion/…
“I’ve been trying to forget this all my life, and now I’m supposed to remember every little detail, they’re going to be all over me.” Jim Gensheimer, a friend of Christine Blasey Ford recalled. mercurynews.com/2018/09/17/met…
Another character witness posts to their Facebook account. This is it why an FBI continued investigation is required. Any Senator apposing investigators questioning these alumni and acquaintances should be voted out of their seats and held accountable. Her name is Christina King-
We have waited and worked for far too long to allow this to be the standard in America, especially within the highest court of the land. Women are done, we have had it.
Dr. Blasey Ford’s lawyer explains why she wants full investigation and confirms she is dedicated to working with judiciary committee on all levels of cooperation. cnn.com/videos/politic…
‘Rather than 4D chess, political gamesmanship, events tell messy tale of a politician losing control of the situation, news outlets struggling to stay ahead of competition, intra-party tension, a woman contemplating the loss of both her privacy & her life’ buzzfeednews.com/article/paulmc…
Cristina King Miranda says she recalls it being discussed at their school, but has no first-hand knowledge of the alleged assault by Brett Kavanaugh.
Her statement is posted above this tweet, in this thread. nbcnews.com/politics/supre…
Trump says alleged assault by Kavanaugh is ‘very hard for me to imagine’.

A student at Yale Law School received a troubling combination of warning and advice from her professors about one federal judge in particular...

Brett Kavanaugh, she was told, liked his female clerks to have a “certain look.” huffingtonpost.com/entry/yale-stu…
...“It was very clear to me that he was talking about physical appearance, because it was phrased as a warning, and because it came after the warning about Judge Kozinski.”
Kozinski was a flashing red signal advice on Kavanaugh didn’t stop her from deciding to interview with him.

A group of students at Harvard Law School is calling on the university to stop allowing Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, to hold a teaching job unless there is an investigation into the sexual assault allegations brought against him. thehill.com/blogs/blog-bri…
More American voters now oppose Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination than support it after he was accused of committing sexual assault while he was in high school, with opposition increasing 9 points since last month. nbcnews.com/politics/first…
All the lame excuses conservatives are making to explain why the Trump isn’t nominating female judges.

Ed Whelan, who is Trump’s behind the scene operative on Kavanaugh, has asserted that well-qualified conservative attorneys are more likely to be male. amp.slate.com/news-and-polit…
@MSNBC confirms Senate Democrats have investigators in Maryland now, discussing possibly bringing state charges up on Brett Kavanaugh. As we know, no statute of limitations on sexual assault in the state of Maryland.
Senator @lisamurkowski you’re up next! Do the right thing or Alaska is done with you. 🇺🇸
They really are going for this?

Kavanaugh & Republicans privately discussing a defense that wouldn’t question an incident involving Ford happened, but instead would raise doubts that the attacker was Kavanaugh, according to source knowing the discussions. washingtonpost.com/amphtml/politi…
Dr. Blasey Ford refuses to testify while Kavanaugh is in the room or on the same day.

She is opposed to senate republicans hiring a outside female counsel to do the questioning.

No agreement to conditions as of now, however next Thursday looks to be agreed date of testimony.
Blasey Ford requesting Kavanaugh testify first.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford shoots down Republican’s theory, stating —

“I knew them both, and socialized with Chris Garrett. I even visited Chris Garrett when he was in the hospital. There is zero chance that I would confuse them.”
They Oversaw Sex Crime Cases, Now They’ll Grill Kavanaugh. 🍿thebea.st/2NpbZJ7
McConnell assured evangelicals he will be confirmed.

Throwing it all against the wall. apne.ws/7mwbHem
This is bullshit.
JUST IN: Judiciary Cmte. Republican senator tells @NBCNews that a counter-offer has been made to Dr. Ford:

- Hearing would be Wednesday
- Ford would testify first, then Kavanaugh
- They would be only 2 witnesses called
- Cmte. would pick lawyer for questioning
Dr. Blasey Ford’s sister-in-law speaking live on @MSNBC, stating a difficult time for Ford and the entire family.
...“We’ll do it on Wednesday, we expect the accuser before the accused and we do intend to have the counsel do the questioning,”

Letter From Lawyer Debra Katz, in behalf of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. #MeToo
Kavanaugh grew frustrated when came to questions that dug into his private life, particularly his drinking habits & his sexual proclivities, according to 3 on inside requesting anonymity. He declines to answer questions altogether complaining too personal. wapo.st/2OJlOy7
.“I’m not going to answer that,”

‘Kavanaugh said at one point according to a senior White House official, who said the questions were designed to go over the line and that he struck the right tone.’

Someone is starting to break, and it’s not Trump...
Michael Bromwich, Ex-DOJ inspector general, just joined Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team.
He resigned from his legal partnership today, due to their objections over joining Ford and Katz.
He is also the lawyer representing Andrew McCabe in his case.
“My role will likely require me to appear publicly on Dr. Ford’s behalf, and the Senate is being advised of my involvement this afternoon. Because objections have been raised within the partnership to my doing so while employed by the firm, I am resigning, effective immediately.”
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced his retirement, and Christine Blasey Ford began fretting again.

“Her mind-set was, ‘I’ve got this terrible secret. . . . What am I going to do with this secret?’ ” her husband recalled. wapo.st/2OKZmVc
.Breaking— Fresh excuse!

Kavanaugh has calendars from the summer of 1982 that he plans to hand over to the Senate Judiciary Committee that do not show a party consistent with the description told by Ford, according to someone working for his confirmation. nyti.ms/2PUixfs
.BREAKING‼️

Senate Democrats Investigate a New Allegation of Sexual Misconduct, from the Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s College Years.
newyorker.com/news/news-desk…
Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee knew about the second woman to accuse Brett Kavanaugh LAST WEEK.

They are lying to you Republican ladies.
They are steering your life into submission.
They are hoodwinking your mind and your reason.
Letter to @ChuckGrassley,
from @SenFeinstein 🇺🇸
“Senate Democrats actively withheld information from the rest of the Committee only to drop information at politically opportune moments. It increasingly appears that they are more interested in a political takedown than” investigating allegations.
