Flake and Corker both say to proceed with vote if Ford doesn't testify on Monday...

Flake was the first Republican to step up and basically state that he would probably not vote "yes" unless he heard from Ford first. Corker was probably the second to make the same sort of statement. Together, they have been two of the most vocal Republicans in favor of hearing from the accuser, and quite possibly the most likely to vote no because of it. Both are anti-Trumpers on their way out, and neither have much to lose if they decided to rock the boat. 

Moreover, Flake is on the judicial committee and which means that Kavanaugh would never see a full Senate vote without Flake's support in committee. 

So quite obviously, support for a vote from both Flake and Corker would be a big boost for Kavanaugh's confirmation chances. Collins seems very upset with how this whole thing was handled by the Democrats and appears poised to provide Kavanaugh with her vote as well. Her suggestion yesterday that Kavanaugh's attorney be allowed to cross examine Ford was probably designed in part to intimidate her and fully call her bluff.  There has been no indication that Murkowski or anyone else was wavering before the allegations surfaced... it would be unlikely that the allegations alone (without testimony) would change anyone's mind.

nbc just said cray cray is demanding an FBI investigation. her angle is that while it's out of the FBI's jurisdiction, it could force them to re-open an investigation into kavanaugh's background.

what a piece of shit this woman is.

She is , a perfect vessel to carry the Democrat message in 2018 election.

KD said...

Where is the evidence Rog, Jane and Denise said they had that Dr. Cray Cray is telling the truth.

She already put out a couple of versions of what she believes happened in her rape sex fantasy.

She can't go in front of US Senate Committee with a new version that have location, date, time and witnesses.

Yep....another trump legacy that people see right trough Very sad indeed!!!

Reuters) - A growing number of Americans said they opposed President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as the candidate's confirmation hearings took place and as he fended off a sexual assault claim, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed.

The Sept. 11-17 poll found that 36 percent of adults surveyed did not want Kavanaugh in the Supreme Court, up 6 points from a similar poll conducted a month earlier.

Only 31 percent of U.S. adults polled said they were in favor of Kavanaugh's appointment.

If support for his nomination remains this weak, Trump's pick would rank among the lowest-supported Supreme Court nominees to later be confirmed, according to historical data from Gallup.

"Not after the sexual charges," said Jeffrey Schmidt, 56, from Colorado, who opposes President Trump and his policies. "Before the allegations, I was not sure."

Kavanaugh has denied the claim that he assaulted a woman while in high school in 1982, calling it "completely false."

Kamala Harris: Accuser Should Not Be "Bullied" Into Testifying About It;
Mazie Hiromo: Men Should Shut Up
—Ace of Spades
The woman who orchestrated a national PR campaign to hype up the release of her Oscar-hopeful accusation should not be "bullied" into actually testifying about it.

And Senator Mazie Hirono demands that men "shut up" any time a woman lobs an accusation.

On Monday, Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) put on a show for reporters, ranting about the "men in this country" and telling them to "just shut up" with regard to the flimsy decades-old allegations of sexual assault launched at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at the eleventh hour.

"Guess who's perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It's the men in this country. I just want to say to the men in this country, just shut up! And step up. Do the right thing for a change," Hirono ranted, when asked about being one of four women on the Senate Judiciary Committee.


I have an idea. If liberal feminist women cannot understand that due process and the requirement of evidentiary standards do not turn off just because another leftist feminist woman has made an allegation, perhaps they should be excluded from public debate and public office. Perhaps they're just not mentally capable of participating in participatory democracy.

That Senator believes that the 1st Amendment is for only bleeders.

And you base that opinion on your ability to smell the truth?????LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!

perhaps they should be excluded from public debate and public office. Perhaps they're just not mentally capable of participating in participatory democracy.

And we should take away their right to vote too!!! Are you living in the dark ages??? The stupidity you post is beyond amazing....no wonder why you flunked out of ag school.....so sad....MOOOOOO!!!

The President can order the FBI to investigate the allegations against Cavanaugh and her veracity.

He doesn't want to make the corrupt FBI to investigate his nominee.

commie said...

Anyone venture a guess who belongs to what party that is threatening death on the accuser????/ My first guess was the goat fucker followed by rectum breath....Both are pussy's at heart and would easily go the anonymous threat route...

Commonsense said...

If she's telling the truth, she doesn't need an FBI investigation to tell her she's telling the truth. She's just goes to Washington to tell the truth.

It would be almost worth it for the FBI to open an investigation just to see her refuse the FBI's request for an interview.

Which is what would happen when they call her bluff again.

And then will try to move the goal posts again. Grassley should just call the vote Friday when she refuses to go. Just do it!!!

We don't know if anyone threaten death on the accuser because, mysteriously, they didn't file a police report ot make any of the text or recordings public.

commie said...

"We don't know if anyone threaten death on the accuser because," I am a moron....

Suggest you google it....there are multiple sources saying threats.....

All the problems with sexual assault is causing a problem. But it does give the Republicans a way to oppose Cavanaugh without a problem.

Multiple stories, all from a single source. The accuser's lawyer. Moron.

McCaskill just sealed her fate with a No vote on Kavenaught.

Yep. She was already trailing in the polls. That Skank is going to retire with the Million$ her and her hubby have bilked from the US Government.

The Dems worked to keep her silent.
Why did this Fem report it to the Police?

"Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., met July 20 for roughly 90 minutes with Ford"

"Former Vice President Al Gore has been hit by new allegations of sexual assault. This time, it's two more massage therapists bringing the charges.
The former VP is already in hot water, fighting abuse claims in Portland, where another masseuse said Gore groped her in '06 and asked her to perform a "chakra release" (massage-speak for "hand job".) He denies everything."

Oh al

Lindsay Graham is asking a simple question but ford and her attorney are refusing to answer. Who paid for that polygraph that dems keep wanting to talk about?

commie said...

Maybe lindsey should ask why Grassely and Hatch were so for the FBI looking at Anita hill allegations and why they are so against the Ford inquiry....is it they know something???? And maybe he can answer what is so imperative to get the votes done this week while he sat on his hands for 300+ days and did nothing about a vacant seat????? Hypocrite assholes....ALL OF THEM!!!!

"Former Vice President Al Gore has been

Current president donald the whore trump, had 17 women allege they were groped by donnie.....He even said on tape that he could grab pussy because he was rich.....and you did nothing..........ASSHOLE

FBI has already investigated kavanaugh six times. Stop pretending that they've never done it.
