The Kavanaugh Allegation seems to be falling apart. There are discrepancies in Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony: her shrink’s notes differed from her account, denials from both Kavanaugh and Judge, and the fact that she has a political activist and known Trump hater representing her. These factors make her story seem more contrived than remembered. But if that were not enough to cast doubts on Ford’s story, the timing is incredibly suspect.
Senate Judiciary Committee called the Democrats out for using Ford’s allegation as a stall tactic.
“It’s disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote after Democrats sat on them since July. If Ranking Member Feinstein and other Committee Democrats took this claim seriously, they should have brought it to the full Committee’s attention much earlier. Instead, they said nothing during two joint phone calls with the nominee in August, four days of lengthy public hearings, a closed session for all committee members with the nominee where sensitive topics can be discussed and in more than 1,300 written questions. Sixty-five senators met individually with Judge Kavanaugh during a nearly two-month period before the hearing began, yet Feinstein didn’t share this with her colleagues ahead of many of those discussions.

Kavanaugh updated his stance on the allegation claiming that she must be mistaken as he has never been involved in such a nefarious act.
“I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone,” Kavanaugh said in the statement. “Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday. I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”
This allegation now must be addressed as it would definitely be a disqualifying factor if true. Even if it is a ploy by the Democrats to stall the appointment.
“Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh and the woman who has accused him of sexually assaulting her decades ago will testify publicly before the Senate on Monday, setting up a potentially dramatic and politically perilous hearing that could determine the fate of his nomination.”
