Gillibrand: Kavanaugh accuser
shouldn´t participate in ´sham´ hearing

The Hill [Washington, DC], by John Bowden -

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 9/19/2018 11:59:35 PM

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) says that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who came forward with a sexual assault accusation against Brett Kavanaugh, should not be "bullied" into testifying Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee without an FBI investigation being performed. In an interview with CNN, the Democratic senator says that committee members are bullying Ford by calling for her testimony without the support of corroborating witnesses or an FBI investigation into the credibility of her claim. "I don´t think she should be bullied into this scenario, where it´s a ´he-said, she-said´ when many of the committee members

Comments:
24 hours ago they were demanding a hearing. Now they demand the accuser avoid any hearing. Their rhetoric just keeps getting more crazed and nonsensical.

In other words, everyone on both sides knows this is a sham, but maybe we can pretend it is real and delay this into oblivion.

CNN is a magnet for fools so Gillibrand fits right in.
She´s but one of many who seem to sound reasonable when they are actually just tools spouting the Alinsky Liar Party line. NY deserves her.

The Democrats know they cannot stop Kavanaugh from becoming a SCJ. Their tactic now is to claim that Republicans are mistreating a woman and ignoring a sexual assault. They are counting on the outrage to bring out the female vote against Republicans in the midterms. This will become the main talking point and you will hear it called the war on women again.

Nobody is fooled by any of this scam.

The Dems know it is a scam, but like it. The Repubs know it is a scam, and they are really angry.

Dems are really screwing up here. Only the lunatic fringe like the idiot Sen from Hawaii and Gillibrand are buying this BS story.

Because the hearing for a Supreme Court Judge is a serious matter the process should be dignified, true, honest and filled with integrity. The democrats have made a circus out of it. (That´s the "SHAM")

What? The accuser should be able to make accusations and that´s all we need to hear from her? No, lady, we need to question you and you need to answer. That´s how it works here in this country.

But, so far, the few "witnesses" she has claimed were there have all said that she is LYING!!!!!!

Hearing about what? No one has yet provided the accuser´s July 30, 2018 letter to to US Senate Judiciary Chmn. Grassley. Grassley wouldn´t even know her name except he read it in the Washington Post. Grassley has asked ´bully´ Feinstein for the letter numerous times, but she refuses. To date Grassley has only seen a redacted version that was included in FBI files. Trump has a 47 approval rating among Likely Voters per Rasmussen as of 9/19/18. Obama had 45 on this date in his first term.

Gillibrand is not a good spokeswoman for the Democrat party. Her voice sounds like a wee little girl - no authority. Notice how Feinstein has taken a powder? She´s a key player but is staying out of the limelight - no doubt couldn´t face the questions she´d rightfully be asked. She owes it to the American public to be grilled in front of cameras. Why do the Dems keep harping on an FBI investigation? Didn´t they get the message that this alleged incident is not covered by the FBI, that they declined to investigate? What witnesses are Ford and company talking about? The only two (Judge and P.J.) have already weighed in. To compare Anita Hill (22 witnesses) to Ford (2 who are not in her camp, zero who are) is ridiculous. How about more publicity around Ford´s students´ comments about her?

CHICAGO – The outgoing mayor of Chicago wants to legalize recreational marijuana and open a casino to help address a growing pension crisis in the nation’s third largest city, a source close to the mayor said Tuesday. Rahm Emanuel, who is set to leave office in May, will propose both measures in a major address on Wednesday, according to the source, who was not authorized to speak publicly before the mayor’s address. Also Tuesday, aides to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told The New York Post that Cuomo was readying a plan to legalize recreational marijuana in that state. It´s

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has the core of her 2020 team in place if she runs for president. She has the seed money — there’s $12.5 million ready to go, left from her recent Senate run — and a massive email list she’s amassed over years, boosted by a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in the last election alone. Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move. All that’s left is for her to give the green light.

WASHINGTON — The 2020 Democratic presidential primary, already expected to be the party’s most wide open in decades, has been jostled on the eve of many long-plotted campaign announcements by a political threat that few contenders bothered considering until recently: Will a soon-to-be-former congressman, with an unremarkable legislative record and a Senate campaign loss, upend their best-laid plans? Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas has emerged as the wild card of the presidential campaign-in-waiting for a Democratic Party that lacks a clear 2020 front-runner. After a star-making turn in his close race against Senator Ted Cruz, Mr. O’Rourke is increasingly serious

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. — Progressive Democrats are beginning to confront an unintended consequence of their own success: Dilution of the brand. So many Democratic presidential prospects are now claiming the progressive mantle in advance of the 2020 primaries that liberal leaders are trying to institute a measure of ideological quality control, designed to ensure the party ends up with a nominee who meets their exacting standards. Leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are discussing policy platforms that could serve as a litmus test for presidential contenders. Progressive donors, meanwhile, are plotting steps — ranging from closer engagement with campaigns to

DAKAR, Senegal — The second-largest Ebola outbreak in history has spread to a major city in eastern Congo, as health experts worry whether the stock of an experimental vaccine will stand up to the demands of an epidemic with no end in sight. Butembo, with more than 1 million residents, is now reporting cases of the deadly hemorrhagic fever. That complicates Ebola containment work already challenged by rebel attacks elsewhere that have made tracking the virus almost impossible in some isolated villages. “We are very concerned by the epidemiological situation in the Butembo area,” said John Johnson, project coordinator

Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump.
