11:28 AM update:

Grassley calls for a 15 minute break. Republican prosecutor Mitchell has asked several poignant questions, including one that led to an admission of an embellishment of the story on the part of Ford.

In Ford’s testimony, she claimed that members of the “social gathering” were laughing and talking downstairs during the alleged ordeal, but then admitted that she could not hear them. When asked how it was possibly that she knew that they were talking and laughing, Ford admitted that she “assumed” that that was the case.

Grassley is giving Judiciary Committee members five minutes each: Five minutes for a Republican member to ask questions, then five minutes for a Democrat member. Republicans are using prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who will be interrupted every five minutes for softball questions from Democrats.

10:53: AM update:

Opening statements are finished, and prosecutor Rachel Mitchell has the floor to ask Ford questions.

10:38 AM update:

Noticeably emotional, Ford is now recounting the details of her alleged sexual encounter with Kavanaugh.

She said that either Kavanaugh or his friend Mark Judge pushed her into a bedroom at a house party, before Kavanaugh, in a drunken state, grinded on her and attempted to remove her one-piece bathing suit.

She has not given any new details that were not provided in her letter to Feinstein.

According to Ford, she wanted a “second front door” when her home was remodeled, which brought up the story about the alleged assault. She does not remember naming Kavanaugh as the assailant, but that her husband does.

10:33 AM update:

Ford is sworn by Grassley. She is now under oath, preparing to give her opening statement.

10:20 AM update:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is making her opening remarks. She welcomed Ford to the hearing, and is now addressing the prevalence of sexual assaults in America, and calling the process for addressing such allegations “wanting.”

“Our institutions have not progressed in how they treat women who come forward,” she said.

10:00 AM update:

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is making opening remarks, during which he blasted Democrats for obstructing the investigation into Ford’s allegations after her confidential letter to Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was leaked to the media. Ford, looking tense, is waiting for Grassley to finish his opening remarks to speak publicly for the first time.

Presidential Debate Commission Considers Major Rule Changes, Which May Include Muting Trump’s Microphone

They are desperate to protect Joe Biden.

Published

on

President Donald Trump smacked down former vice president Joe Biden so brutally in last night’s presidential debate that the commission is considering changing the rules to give Biden a leg up in future debates.

The Commission on Presidential Debates made the announcement on Wednesday that they are going to be changing the rules of the game to hurt President Trump, which may even include the ability to mute Trump’s microphone.

They issued a statement saying that the debate “made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.”

President Trump, who was frequently double-teamed by Biden and biased globalist moderator Chris Wallace, was forced to fight two men during the debate, but this wasn’t enough to give Biden the advantage. This is why they are considering changing the rules in the middle of the game.

Of course, the Commission on Presidential Debates praised Wallace for attacking Trump and propping up Biden throughout the debate.

“The CPD will be carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly,” the organization said. “The Commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates.”

They have assured CBS News that “we are going to be making changes” before the next debate. This is clearly designed to hurt Trump and bias the proceedings even further against the president.

Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump campaign, is calling out the commission for their partisan and reprehensible behavior.

“They’re only doing this because their guy got pummeled last night,” he said in a statement. “President Trump was the dominant force and now Joe Biden is trying to work the refs. They shouldn’t be moving the goalposts and changing the rules in the middle of the game.”

Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager for Biden’s campaign, is counting on the rules being changed to help Biden.

“He’ll be focused on answering questions from the voters there, under whatever set of rules the Commission develops to try to contain Donald Trump’s behavior,” Bedingfield said in a statement. “The president will have to choose between responding to voters about questions for which he has offered no answers in this campaign — or repeating last night’s unhinged meltdown.”

Big League Politics reported on how Wallace constantly interrupted President Trump and served as a surrogate for Biden while he was supposed to be the non-biased moderator:

The Donald Trump campaign has indicated that ‘neutral’ moderator Chris Wallace interrupted President Trump a whopping 76 times during Tuesday’s debate. Wallace, who is known for harboring liberal sympathies, was widely criticized by conservatives for his partiality in moderating the contest…

It appears that Biden actually spent more time talking during the debate than Trump did, despite Wallace consistently maintaining that Trump was breaking the rules.

Wallace continually invoked the rules that allot two minutes for each answer to each candidate, but declined to interrupt Biden when he violated them. He flouted neutrality most during the ‘open discussion’ segments, waiting for a moment when Biden appeared flustered or challenged by the President to change the subject.

Wallace conveniently changed the subject when Trump pressed Biden to identify any law enforcement union that endorsed him…

Wallace also provided the same convenient handicap when Biden described the terrorist group ANTIFA as an ‘idea.’…

Biden assailed Trump with a hail of personally charged insults, calling him a ‘clown,’ a ‘racist,’ a ‘fool,’ and a ‘puppy.’ Wallace did not object to any of the character attacks utilized by Biden…

At this point, if Biden refuses to a contest with a moderator unaffiliated with a mainstream corporate media outlet, just do the debates without a moderator. Have the two candidates speak in an open-ended fashion without the use of a convenient handicap to cut off any content that might prove harmful to the Democrat’s electoral prospects.

The electoral integrity for November’s vote is already severely jeopardized. President Trump might want to consider suspending the elections in order to protect the Republic from the anti-democratic coup that is in progress.
