Rachel Just Made an Excellent Factual Point About When Dr. Ford Came Forward With Her Allegations

Dr. Ford contacted her elected representative and the Washington Post BEFORE Kavanaugh was nominated; while he was still on the short list. This wasnít about opposing Trumpís nominee. It was about Kavanaugh, himself.

2. SHE contacted the Wash Po?

I haven't heard that. Somebody better tell Grassley, he accused DiFi of leaking the info.

4. The initial contact to the WAPO was made anonymously

More recently, she contacted them after her name was leaked and the press started showing up in her classroom and at her workplace questioning her colleagues.

The leak was of her name, between her first and second contacts with the WAPO.

5. Actually Ford said the reporters contacted her.....

 

It was that contact that made her realize her name was out there even though she hoped for confidentiality and then she chose to talk with the Washington Post out of all the various media that was after her story.

At least that is how I heard her testimony.

Grassley and the others continued to blame the entire situation on DIFI...of course.

during her testimony and was discussed for a few minutes with Rachel Mitchell.

7. Yes, Dr Ford said that during her opening statement and again with answers to Mitchell and

one of the Dem senators.

8. This Contradicts a Big Republican Talking Point

And a Kavanaugh talking point.

10. Three lies: about Keyser, the date of their meetup, wanting an FBI investigation.

His former roommate says he's lying about the extent of his drinking in college, too.

11. I believe Kavanaugh is the GOP's last hope to keep many of themselves out of prison...

so he will be appointed.
At which point, the U.S. will officially be owned.
