Republicans Consider Using Female Staffers To Question Kavanaugh Accuser, Her Attorneys Push Back


by Evie Fordham

Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans are considering using female staffers to question Dr. Christine Blasey Ford at the hearing set for Thursday, but her attorneys pushed back.

Committee Republicans “reserve the option to have female staff attorneys, who are sensitive to the particulars of Dr. Ford’s allegations and are experienced investigators, question both witnesses,” committee chair Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley said in a letter to Ford’s lawyers Friday, according to The New York Times.

Ford’s lawyers only want her to be questioned by senators, reported CNN. All 11 of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Republican members are male.

Four Democratic female senators sit on the Judiciary Committee, but they will likely be speaking, not questioning, during their allotted time slots, according to The NYT.

Ford will testify Thursday about her allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who will have the chance to rebut her testimony after Ford speaks.

Ford has also requested that she never has to be in the same room as Kavanaugh during the hearing process.

Ford claims that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when they were both in high school. Kavanaugh denies the allegations.

Kavanaugh currently serves as a Circuit Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. President Donald Trump announced Kavanaugh as his nominee July 9.

  1. As instituted, a Representative Republic, the Government of the Federation of States that is the United States, was made up of 4 separate Majorities. They were; 1) the House (the People) 2) the Senate (the States) 3) The President (the Electoral College) and 4) the Supreme Court (the Law). These majorities were devised to break up the bad points of Democracy (the majority always abuses the minority and the people soon begin to vote money to themselves out of the National Treasury – the results of which are Chaos and finally Dictatorship – see all of history for the proof of this).

    In 1865 the 14th Amendment incorporated the Bill of Rights and reversed the roll of the States over the Federal Gov. to placing them under the Federal Government; thus Nationalizing the Federation.

    In 1913 the 17th Amendment destroyed the “Majority” of the States by removing their Suffrage and giving that “majority” to the People – first concrete step of destroying the Representative Republic. By 1920 it was common to call America a Democracy rather than a Republic per the fork-tongued Woody Wilson and his ever increasing propaganda machine.

    In 1973 the long efforts – dating back to 1803 – tear down the 4th Majority, the Supreme Court was finally politicized and taken from the “majority of the Law and given to the people – the People’s Court and the fall of the Rule of Law. Strike 2 against the Republic!!

    Against the Agenda of the Left, The nomination of Brett Kavanaugh is both a huge threat to the People’s Court but also an opportunity to finally destroy the Republic completely by taking down a DULY elected president by the third “majority”, Electoral College!

    Do we really SEE what is at stake here? It isn’t just President Trump or the fate of Roe v. Wade! We are facing the DEATH of the Republic!

    Even IF Kavanaugh is appointed to the Court do any of you think for a second that the Left – as close as they are to their objective – is going to curl up and go away? They must be completely DESTROYED!!
