First the GOP demands Prof. Ford appears before them. Now they are trying to avoid questioning her
I hope she has the strength to demand all questioning come from the Senators themselves. They demanded she appear, now they want to hide. Call their bluff. They will claim they are trying to make her less uncomfortable or toning down the political temperature in the room. Nonsense! She will be on record, probably in front of a camera. Personally, I want every Senator to speak their own words, ask their own questions and face the consequences.
Lawrence O'Donnell,this is heading into interesting territory. The man said,these people do not understand Senate Rules and how the Senate Staff is going to handle this. Basically,he is saying,Kavanahn is toast because the Staff will not have any part of this circus.
BTW,O'Donnell mentioned,Gassley and Hatch are to dumb to realize what they did or are doing.
and don't want to personally be on the record with their questions and responses to Dr. Ford. The backlash cometh!
for Republicans! The political firestorm would be massive...led by a nation n of angry women and sexual assault survivors.
Open up the inquiry and delay for a proper investigation?...maybe a disaster also!
They have only one out...negotiate with Ford through her lawyer for a fair and safe hearing with multiple witnesses.
Republican hypocrisy - see Franken - is biting them in the ass.
Call it The Franken Effect. Thank you, Al. Karma is here on our side coming directly back from your principled resignation.
