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.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
