Who heard Avenatti on Rachel just now, the most watched show on cable? He just blew it all up.

His involvement could be a game-changer. Millions of people watch her. Rachel read his email RE gang rapes, trains.

Avenatti kept hammering on what's the rush; there needs to be an investigation and all witnesses need to be heard. THey discussed that this is potentially criminal activity.

And just before the break, she started talking about another new development - a letter from Ford's new attorney to the committee about a number of issues her attorneys were contesting.

3. She just read a letter from Dr. Ford's new lawyer (Brownwich?) turning Grassley inside out, too.

Between Avenatti and this new lawyer they may just get the FBI hearing after all. These guys are uncovering more information than
the government. How sad is that?

They are going to have these old farts so shook up, they'll start dropping like flies. What a mess.

The Repubs think they can snap their fingers and get their way. The winds are changing, so they'd better get used to it.

The next 48 hours are going to be interesting to see them all squirm.

6. Bromwich. He's a high horsepower attorney...



...he's a former US District attorney and, to take this case, he resigned from his law firm.

9. Thanks! I'm old and my memory isn't good on names (even when I was young).

I imagine he scared the beejeebers out of the Repubs when he announced he was helping Christine.

14. For him to have resigned his partnership he must feel certain of Ford.

 

Or he feels certain that there is Ford and a whole lot more that disqualify Kavanaugh.

That is pretty damn far to go to resign your partnership. You have to be very, very passionate about this issue and probably in the know on a lot of things.

15. Or you understand, as an attorney,

exactly what is at stake here in terms of the preservation of our democracy.

SCOTUS is having a crisis all its own right now. The founding fathers set up the Supreme Court to be completely independent of politics and political influence or corruption, yet look at how the Court has increasingly been lurching to the right. Worse, since Roberts became Chief Justice, the Court has increasingly - and uncharacteristically - been immersed in over-turning precedent setting cases. This is not the Court's primary, secondary or even tertiary, purpose, and it should upset everyone. The rate at which this is occurring is disturbing.

16. I read on DU last night that he was joining her legal team and was so happy!

When Rachel mentioned him I knew right away that he will be an assett.
https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/blink-and-you-may-have-missed-it-andrew-mccabes-lawyer-is-on-christine-fords-legal-team/

"Bromwich himself followed suit through Twitter as well, writing, ďIím honored to be joining Debra Katz and Lisa Banks in representing Dr. Ford.Ē

In a statement provided to the employees of his now-former law firm, Bromwich announced his immediate resignation due to objections from the firmís partners. He wrote, in part:

Within the past few days I have been asked to be one of Christine Blasey Fordís attorneys. My role will likely require me to appear publicly on Dr. Fordís behalf, and the Senate is being advised of my involvement this afternoon. Because objections have been raised within the partnership to my doing so while employed by the firm. I am resigning from the firm effective immediately. This obviously is happening on a schedule that could not be anticipated."

The last thing we need is another head of state with no government experience. But, I would be quite fine seeing him as US Attorney General, or in some other spot in the Justice Department.

21. I agree with you, but we do need more Michael Avenattis.

The GOP has been the loudest, angriest voice in the room for far too long. We Democrats actually have policies worth shouting about; Republicans only shout lies.

Strange, but he was great.

7. If Avenatti does have and does the information

at his disposal and he, his client, and the collaborating witnesses do come forward, it could make every Republican shit his or her pants!

19. GOP operatives are terrified of Avenatti.

Look for a smear campaign.
