No question. Suddenly, they say there is no reason and no precedent for it. That's an out and out lie.

Can't wait for Hatch to be gone. But, in Utah, his replacement could be even worse.

A subpoena to testify can be used to either get testimony OR be charged with contempt of congress. The Chairman can issue that subpoenae, but won't because the Dems want it, and if Judge doesn't lie then Kavanaughs confirmation likely goes bye bye.

Kavanaugh has already lied under oath to the judiciary committee so it won't be any sweat off his balls to lie again. His testimony is already suspect.

Grassley is not offering her every opportunity , since he and the republicans on the committee are not going to ask for any testimony from Judge , or any other possible witnesses. This is a kangaroo hearing if it goes forward since there is NO possibility of getting any determination of the truth on either side. It is a dog and pony show that is only for the base voters that live in the Trump unreality bubble. Like you.

Exactly. Also it’s not just Judge who won’t be heard. She is not going to be allowed to have any of her own witnesses, which could include someone submitting her medical record to the court, her therapist, possibly anyone else she talked to which apparently it’s now come out that she did so...this is all about a big **** show for the radical right POTUS bootlickers. She’s entirely right to avoid it, especially since there will be no investigation.

Lots of women will be voting in November I think.

Go to your local PD. Tell them you don't want to file a report, but you'd like them to investigate your neighbor. See what they say.

Brett Kavanaugh's accuser is getting death threats — inside the 'psychology of trolls'

Since making her name public in the Washington Post on Sunday, Ford has been subjected to “vicious harassment and even death threats,” all of which have been detailed in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to the New York Times.

Ford’s email has been hacked, she’s been impersonated online, and she and her family have had to relocate from their home, her lawyers say. “While Dr. Ford’s life was being turned upside down, you and your staff scheduled a public hearing for her to testify at the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. Senators on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident,” the lawyers wrote. The hearing “would include interrogation by senators who appear to have made up their minds that she is ‘mistaken’ and ‘mixed up.’

Ford said in her interview with the Washington Post that she was hesitant to come forward with her allegations because she was worried about public backlash. “Why suffer through the annihilation if it’s not going to matter?” she said. The professor is now working with private security to address the death threats, one of which reportedly reads: “6 months to live, you disgusting slime.”

Although it’s one thing to try to refute an individual’s story, death threats are a whole other level. Unfortunately, it’s not the first time a victim has received them. “People make death threats out of a root cause, of ignorance,” licensed clinical psychologist John Mayer, author of Family Fit: Find Your Balance in Life, tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “That is not to say that they have a low IQ, but they have an ignorance of the issues behind the person’s actions they are so vehement about.”

Death threats are a “type of bullying behavior” that “works,” Mayer says, because few people feel comfortable putting their life in danger. They also happen “with such a frequency that it feels safe for people to make these threats,” Saltz says.

Lol that IS fun!

And since the Kavanaugh hearing is a job interview and not a court case, IT IS ALSO COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT.

You know that. You know you know that. You just refuse to try to be intellectually honest, ever.

Why are you so happy to have sexual predators at the highest leveled of the government? Is it because you are a sexual predator? (Yes.)

You're a drama queen snowflake of the highest order that can't be reasoned with or taken serious and it's your own damn fault.

I have no idea if he’s a sexual predator but this same eager acceptance and defense of these people is translated through consistent approval of every other kind of disgusting behavior as well. Whether he’s trying to diminish women or minorities, argue for the destruction of the Constitution or making up likes about renewable energy or Obama, it all eminates from rampant tribal loyalty to a party above conscience and basic human decency or loyalty to principles.

They’ve rejected all that they claimed to hold dear, for the worst human being they could possibly find.

What motivates that kind of bizarre behavior across the entire spectrum of otherwise distinct self-interests one would normally expect to be in evidence in politics? What unites these people who have literally almost nothing in common with the guy they support?

They all hate the same people.

It's funny to watch you two clowns pretend to know and label people as you see fit and don't have a clue what your doing wrong.

We don’t pretend anything.

You’ve made it abundantly obvious what you are by your eager support for the ****hole President.

He is. When the Trump grabbing p***Y news dropped, he was here defending him. "WHAT WE ALL DO IT." Absurd.

He has a guilty conscience, which is why he defends dirtbags like Trump and Kavanaugh to the ends of the earth.

Kavanaugh’s accuser, by contrast, has done none of these things. To date, she is the only figure within this drama who hasn’t given testimony under oath.

No one but Trump supporters take Trump supporters seriously. I’m not sure it’s their fault though. People are born stupid after all.

Great challenge! They totally would do it if I were the President of the USA, they were the FBI, and it was on a request to investigate info regarding allegations of battery against Rob Porter... someone I wanted as my Staff Secretary.
