The attorney for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct accuser is casting doubt about whether she will appear before the Senate after agreeing to a Thursday hearing.
“In new letter from Dr Ford’s Attorney to the Judiciary Committee, they again object to having outside counsel ask the questions for republicans at Thursday’s hearing, and ask for the name and resume of who that person will be,” reported Frank Thorpe. “This does not appear to be a done deal.”

“The refusal of the White House to request that the FBI reopen Judge Kavanaugh’s background check precluded a thorough non-partisan investigation of this matter,” wrote attorney Michael R. Bromwich said in a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who heads the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“And the hearing that [Chief Counsel for Nominations] Mr. Davis described does not appear designed to provide Dr. Blasey Ford with fair and respectful treatment,” the letter continued.
The trepidation expressed by Bromwich has speculation swirling about whether Ford will show up for the hearing on Thursday.
“In our view, hiring an unnamed ‘experienced sex crimes prosecutor,’ as Mr. Davis described in his email is contrary to the Majority’s repeated emphasis on the need for the Senate and this Committee’s members to fulfill their constitutional obligations,” the letter said.
In other words, Ford wants a hearing, but she does not want to be questioned by a prosecutor with expertise in sex crimes.
But after ignoring the Senate’s request to appear before the Judiciary Committee for nearly three days last week, missing two deadlines to set a hearing date- one on Friday, and the other on Saturday – and still receiving a hearing before the Senate votes on Kavanaugh, Ford might be out of bargaining power.
Monday night, Kavanaugh again categorically denied the allegations made against him in an interview with Fox News’ Martha McCallum.
“I want an opportunity, a fair process – America is about fairness – I want a fair process where I can defend my integrity and clear my name as quickly as I can, in whatever forum the Senate deems appropriate,” he said.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
