Kavanaugh Accuser Does Not Want to Answer Questions from Sex Crimes Prosecutor at Senate Hearing

Published

on

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.

President Trump will see a 50 percent increase in his African-American support. It will go from 8 percent in 2016 to a minimum of 12 percent in 2020. He may even get to 15 percent of the African American vote, and that is game over.”

Such a small slice of the black vote may seem small, but it very well could prove enough to be impactful in swing states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania. Scott pointed to President Trump’s performance on economic policy as a possible factor in drawing black support to the GOP in 2020.

“[Trump] had an executive order to increase affordability of home ownership, and African American home ownership since he took office is up about 2%… President Trump is not just talking a good game, he is walking a good game.”

Scott pointed to the possibility of a Michael Bloomberg nomination alienating some Black Americans from the Democratic Party.

African Americans have been one of the most consistent voting blocs for the Democratic Party since the 1960’s. Some blacks are concerned that they’re not a priority for the Democratic Party in an era where the party has made generous policy concessions to various demographic groups.

A realignment of some Black Americans into the Republican Party wouldn’t be without precedent in American history. African Americans originally strongly supported the reconstruction-era Republican Party when they were granted voting rights(in theory) after the Civil War. The first black U.S Senator and House Representative was a Republican.
