    Sen Feinsten has entered all the allegations by other victims into the senate record.

  5. September 27, 2018 at 10:45 am

    Right off the bat Grassley to Feinsten’s introductory remarks: “sorry you used unsubstantiated claims”. (And also “they will be looked at at another time.”) ??? How have GOP substantiated their saintly claims about Kavanaugh? They continue to block further FBI investigation.

    Dr. Ford is doing well with her opening statement. She is brave and a true American hero.

    Can’t watch now. Will wait for the replay so I can stop it and breathe when I need to. The fear is huge.

    Also, I keep having a recurring thought I wanted to share. Several of you have written that this kind of behavior is not a one time thing, and with high school and college incidents we see that is true. So I wonder where KavaNOaugh is getting his sexual kicks these days. Does he have a mistress? Does he frequent kinky sex parlors? I mean I don’t think that “power over” sense of entitlement stopped when he passed the bar or got married or whatever. Just sayin’, and wondering.

    When Dr. Ford says what she remembers the most about the assault was the “laughter,” that was very powerful.

  13. September 27, 2018 at 11:39 am

    the ‘mistaken identity’ guy is the person who introduced Kavanaugh and Judge to her!! No mistaking who was who.

  14. September 27, 2018 at 11:49 am

    Sick how this is reduced to credibility and GOP trying to undermine Dr. Ford because GOP will not do the needed FBI investigation. Murkowski has commented on their pushback. Collins doesn’t know why Judge has not been subpoenaed. ‘Not a trial for Ford but a “job interview” for Brett Kavanaugh’ and his character. Dr. Ford says she is 100% it was Kavanaugh. Women who have been assaulted are listening and coming out about it and Senator Durbin described this upside to this terrible fiasco so well. Also true in my own case.

    is it me seeing wrong ….or has grassley changed his “female background model” (I mean the woman they had purposefully put in camera shot behind him … probably to improve the gender-related optics) ….. ????.

    He is also going on about trying to give the impression that the Democrats are at fault for the current composition and timing of the hearing

  17. September 27, 2018 at 12:06 pm

    Senator Whitehouse: we owe her a sincere investigation, she passes preliminary credibility, has known facts, consistency, willing to take a lie detector and be questioned in Congress, has met all requirements but there have been No investigations into her claims. She asked for FBI to be involved however that turned out – because she might be more helpful on details. Never in the history of background investigation has an investigation not been pursued when new derogatory information was brought forward. Don’t think this has ever happened before…that Kavanaugh’s alleged accomplice has not been examined tells you all you need to know about how credible this performance is. However long it takes I will do whatever in my power to give your claims a full and proper investigation.

    Wow the polygrapher Jerry came to Dr. Ford at the airport right after her grandmother’s funeral.
    How stressful is that? She said she found it stressful and longer than she thought it would be. Remembered crying. Never taken any other polygraph. Said she was scared of the test itself but “comfortable it would reveal whatever it would reveal”.

        I know one thing – if this is the best technique the “female assistant” has, she’s doomed. Truthfully, as you intimated, I think she does believe Dr. Ford and is calling it in.

        I felt like the prosecutor at the end was trying to blame Ford for not talking to them in her own state. Saying it would have been easier for her.

    Even the prosecutor said there was a better way to handle the questioning. Too late, Prosecutor. You don’t get to fly across country as “an expert,” conduct it, see it didn’t go well, then say it could have been arranged better.

      Graham’s rant in the corridor shows the direction the Republican Assistant and GOP is desperately hoping to go.
      They are using Dr. Ford’s lack of total recall. Also Grassley announcement that the committee “would have come to CA” instead of her flying to DC: Weren’t they saying NO WAY until just this week and trying to cut her off? Also questioning her air-travel difficulties. I too am no longer comfortable flying after a bad experience with lack of air and cramped conditions, but you can bet would find some way to do it for something this important. Or for a long awaited vacation. Or death in the family, whatever. In her case I think she had to fly in the past because of research? And she was surprised by Grassley saying the Committee would have come to her. He is such an b-s-er.

    For a moment there I thought Lindsey Graham has going to have one of his tall virile and handsome office staff members pull a couch out in the hallway so he could faint on it.

    Did we know before today, when Grassley casually mentioned it at the end, that they received (among those including two others at the party) a sworn statement for the record that Mark Judge didn’t recall the incident? Not sure I caught that right, and I don’t want a replay of Grassley’s voice back in my head, TYVM.

    Kavanaugh is practically screaming in outrage. Saying he had agreed to any kind of investigation. “She does not know me.” Being mad and outraged means truthful in GOP terms. Grrrr

  60. September 27, 2018 at 3:19 pm

    Kavanaugh is threatening about “the day that is coming”. Says he “fears for the future”. Bannon would love this ominous picture of the future.

    It’s all about Kavanaugh. Not anything but. No wonder trump “likes” him.

    Surely the RWNJs on the committee are wishing HE wasn’t the nominee.

  62. September 27, 2018 at 3:28 pm

    So if he has such a great professional history – how is he stupid enough to believe that Presidents can do anything they want and not be criminally investigated? And that Nixon should not have resigned. How the hell is that?

    Ah, he didn’t list going to church on his calendar nor brushing his teeth, he said because “going to church was like brushing my teeth” = Not something to make a note of. Maybe going to parties was like brushing his teeth. And maybe he was cunning enough to leave those out so he could show his Dad these calendars at any time.

  66. 125 Obama Grandmama
    September 27, 2018 at 3:38 pm

    All Ford’s witnesses deny being there suddenly announced right prior to Kavanaugh’s turn. He is including all the details the prosecutor was querying Ford about proving it was a well rehearsed GOP plan. Knowing everything you did from a calendar down to every detail is kin to preparing an excuse and lie.

  67. September 27, 2018 at 3:42 pm

    When Kavanaugh’s calendar was presented …many asked if it was normal that a boy now a man would hold onto a calendar after all these years…indeed in fact make one at all….i think that i know why he had a calendar and held onto it after all this time…it was his TROPHY…his tribute to how many “conquests” (assaults) he had…

  78. September 27, 2018 at 4:14 pm

    He is a Judge. He knows how to play the game. The WH has been rehearsing him all week.
