A Democrat operative and former White House official under William J. Clinton, who now happens to be “advising” Christine Blasey Ford in her allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, is raising eyebrows over claims she made in July.
“I do think that over the coming days and weeks there will be a strategy that will emerge, and I think it’s possible that that strategy might ultimately defeat the nominee,” said Ricki Seidman in a July phone call recorded by GOP officials.
The timing of Seidman’s comments are impeccable for someone who did not have foreknowledge of Ford’s coming accusations. Reportedly, the letter in which Ford accused Kavanaugh – yet to be released to the public – was delivered to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) in July. In her infinite wisdom, Feinstein sat on the accusation until after the confirmation hearings were finished.
“Whether or not it ultimately defeats the nominee, it will, I think, help people understand why it’s so important that they vote,” she continued.
According to a Daily Caller report, this is the third time that Seidman has been involved in an effort to halt a Supreme Court confirmation.
“She cut her teeth running attack ads against Robert Bork, a nomination that was eventually derailed. She then moved to Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy’s office, where she was instrumental in convincing Anita Hill to go public with her claim that Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her, the report said.
When she was not busy trying to destroy Constitutionally-appointed judges, Seidman was working for the “who’s who” of worst Democrats ever elected.
“Ricki took a leave of absence in 2008 to work for President Obama’s general election campaign, serving as Vice President Joe Biden’s communications director,” according to her biography for TDS Communications, where she now works. “In the spring and summer of 2009, she assisted the White House in the successful confirmation effort for President Obama’s first nominee to the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor.”
She was the White House Deputy Communications Director and Counselor to the Chief of Staff under Clinton.
Another incredible coincidence in the Ford/Kavanaugh saga.
FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days
There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.
There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.
John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.
In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.
Yes, Trump has time to nominate and get his nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court. EVERY SINGLE VOTE ON A #SCOTUS NOMINEE OF THE LAST 45 YEARS was voted on in less time than what Trump has between now and the end of his current term. pic.twitter.com/og5aOZsiw1

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.
McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
