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.


Big League Politics will be bringing live coverage of today’s testimony by Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?

A shock entry to the Presidential race.

Published

on

Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.

West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.

Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.

However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.

West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.

Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
