A report this morning in Axios calls the Kavanaugh- Ford situation “ugly.”

Republicans are privately worried about the risk unleashed by an explosive allegation of a teenage sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but still hope to push ahead to a final confirmation vote next week.

What they’re saying: “This is the ugliest situation imaginable,” said a source close to Senate Republican leaders.

Yes it is ugly.

And the person to blame is Dianne Feinstein.

A third person alleged by Christine Ford to have been present at the “party”-  now also denies any knowledge of it:

 A third high school student Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford claimed attended a party more than 35 years ago where the future Judge Kavanaugh attacked her denied any memory of the alleged incident in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, CNN reported Tuesday.

CNN obtained a letter from Patrick J. Smyth, a Georgetown Prep alum who graduated in Kavanaugh’s class, to Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). The letter was penned after Ford apparently identified Smyth as “PJ” – another teenager who was one of around five people at a drunken gathering in a Montgomery County, Maryland, home in or around 1982.

“I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as ‘PJ’ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post,” the letter, penned by Smyth’s attorney, Eric Bruce, reads. “I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.”

Thus all three of those allegedly present have denied her story.

Ford was invited multiple times by Sen. Chuck Grassley to testify next Monday either in public or in private. At first Ford’s lawyer said Ford was willing to testify. Then Schumer hatched a plan to delay that would delay the testimony- for about two years. He said that the FBI should conduct an investigation into Kavanaugh- as they have done 6 times already- knowing that the FBI already stated that it was done and would not being doing another.

Then a second Ford attorney repeated that as a demand from Ford as well. She will testify only after an FBI investigation of Kavanaugh that will never happen. For some reason, Ford now thinks she controls the Senate committee.

Let us be clear. Ford will never testify. Never. From minute one, this has been nothing other than a stalling tactic. It is meant to throw a cloud of stink on Kavanaugh- one that cannot be proven, but the left is more than willing to destroy a man who has an unblemished career by any measure.

It is reported that Ford sent a letter to Feinstein accusing Kavanaugh of assault but wanted to remain anonymous.

That didn’t work out too well. democrats knew all too well that no one would take seriously this kind of anonymous accusation, so they outed her. They betrayed her.

Now, after 36 years, she’s not prepared to testify. It’s too much of a rush. She’s too emotional now, but she wasn’t unprepared to make outlandish accusations against Kavanaugh. The demand for the FBI investigation is just more BS. It’s a patently obvious stalling tactic and it’s not going to work. Grassley has issued a statement:




















It didn’t help Ford’s case for her attorney to lie:

Contrary to suggestions by Dr. Ford’s attorneys, the committee had no plans to place Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh on a panel together, and never indicated plans to do so. Grassley’s staff offered Dr. Ford multiple dates as well as a choice of providing information in a public or private setting.

Grassley has, fortunately, called their bluff. Now Feinstein is taking heat from both sides. She received Ford’s letter in late July and sat on it until after the hearings as an means of ambushing Kavanaugh. It has backfired.

And now where are we? She’s made an absolute disaster of things. It got out anyway. If anything, by holding it so long, she has helped facilitate the discrediting of the woman who is accusing Kavanaugh here, because it looks desperate and eleventh-hour, whereas if she’d made this public before, people would have had time to process it and Republicans couldn’t have made that accusation.


But now, single-handedly, she has returned things to the Incompetent Democrats narrative. Well, no. Not Incompetent Democrats. Incompetent Democrat, singular. Beyond belief.

democrats do look like incompetent hyper-partisan hacks. If Ford does not appear next Monday, the vote should and will go on. The GOP has been more than fair. Ford made a bad choice in choosing to confide in democrats. They betrayed her.

When you go hunting for bear, you best be prepared for a bear.
