I think the repubs will try to rush it through and confirm him without hearing her side.

8. "She's dealing with death threats against her and her family." That is her 1st priority - keeping

herself and her family alive and well. The Republicans will look like shit.

They don't care, and they will have the vote without an investigation. Its how they roll.

Fight to have the hearing delayed or GTFO.

16. I don't know if that's true

Flake said that he wouldn’t vote to send the nominee out of committee if she wasn’t given a chance to testify... but today he said that Monday is that chance and he would vote yes again if she didn’t show up.

Collins made similar stataements that Ford should be given a chance to tell her story, but that it shouldn’t be an excuse to significantly extend the calendar.

25. Yep

Per Lindsay Graham, if she doesn't show up Monday, then they vote on Wednesday.

“If she does not come on Monday, we are going to move on and vote on Wednesday,” Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina and a member of the committee, told Fox News on Tuesday evening.

40. He and Collins have been going back and forth since the beginning. There's no way

 

They won’t at least pretend to be carefully considering the issue. Public perceptions matter- and women have never mattered more to the GOP. They’re losing their support by the day, and ramming this through will not help. A lot could happen.

37. Graham calling Ford's allegations a "drive by shooting", as Ford is threatened for her life and is

in hiding...what would you do? "Sure, I am on my way?!"

This is no political angle here...it is a matter of life and death and not wanting to be a target anymore. Not again.

Why are Republicans so scared of a full investigation by the FBI? Or DOJ? Or the DA?

republicans will vote kavanaugh in

15. They don't care, and they will try to use the media to spew the garbage that she did will not show

up because it isn't true.

It will be up to the Democrats to refute that, but more important to make a point of the fact that the republicans do NOT want an investigation of the facts.

The vote will come down to this. Those in Congress who believes there should be a non-partisan investigation on this, or not.

On Monday I suspect Kavanaugh will be confirmed, but there she be no doubt where the republicans stand on women

39. Republicans have 6 days to explain why they do not want all of the facts...no other witness but

he said/she said, verdict to be passed by 11 Aging White Men without a clue about the psychology of sexual assault victims...

aren't these the same guys holding up the Violence Against Women Act?

11. They lost quite a bit of support for Kav already. I think it's going to get worse for him before

 

they can schedule another vote. The GOP has been bleeding women’s support for the last year- they can’t afford to ignore this.

They've been in their war room coming up with their messaging and talking points - they'll just unload it all, make her look uncredible and vote.

13. I don't understand why

We are only predicting what that dirty bunch of republicans will likely do. None of this about the truth or fairness with the republicans - it's optics to try and appease the viewing public. They want a confirmation and they want it before the mid terms in case they lose the senate. They don't have time to have hearings for another deplorable trump nominee.

19. They Are A Cult

 

I really think unless they are stopped in their tracks, they are going to keep on rolling and get him confirmed, and worry about any repercussions later. Their ultimate goal and Drumpf's is to get him on the court for the next 40 years. If the Democrats are to have any hope, they have to put a bullet through him. Unfortunately, I think pushing it further down the road is not something the repubs are going to deal very well with.

20. Yup, couldn't agree more... which is why DiFi and Chuck have to stand up to this bullshit!!

And after I was only to happy to sing DiFi's praises, I just saw on MSNBC that she is now saying she doesn't know if everything Dr. Ford is saying about KKKavanaugh is truthful. WTF?!?! Not helpful!!

Or, did I hear that wrong?

I did hear that Fienstein agrees with Dr. Ford's letter about doing and FBI investigation first. Whether she said what you thought she said or not, I don't know. I hope not!
