Slowly but surely the left is backing itself into a corner having not only brought forth a last-minute allegation of sexual misconduct from nearly 40 years ago just days before a Senate confirmation vote, but now the accuser is also refusing to testify. Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford are trying to carry on the damsel-in-distress narrative. They claim such a transparent process could be traumatic for the self-proclaimed victim; they also say they want an investigation first. Apparently, they didn’t expect Capitol Hill Republicans to call her bluff or at least to ask for both sides of a story. With less than two weeks until the SCOTUS starts its Fall term, the pressure is on.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
First, the Democrats claimed that Republicans didn’t want to hear from the accuser of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Then when Republicans said they’d love to hear from her, and would she please show up and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats suggested that such a request was sexist and cruel — that no hearing could be held without an FBI investigation. Now, in an attempt to look forthcoming without actually coming forth with any credible information, the accuser’s lawyers are playing games with the Senate Judiciary Committee.
On Thursday night, lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford outlined a series of demands from the Senate Judiciary Committee in order for Ford to testify under oath. Let it first be said that Kavanaugh has denied all charges and will testify on Monday under oath; if he’s found to be lying, he’ll go to jail for perjury. So this is no game to Kavanaugh.
But it’s a game for Ford’s lawyers. Here were just a few of their demands:
No outside counsel questions her;
The defense testifies first;
Subpoena against Mark Judge.
