Trevor Noah has message for Trump, Kavanaugh supporters: 'Shame recognizes shame'

Senate Republicans had better confirm Kavanaugh promptly, or a huge number of Republican activists-like me-will conclude that the DC version of the party is utterly worthless.

Will Ford testify before the Senate? During Justice Clarence Thomas' confirmation, the George H.W. Bush White House asked the FBI to investigate claims of sexual harassment made by Anita Hill.

"Dr. Ford's testimony would reflect her personal knowledge and memory of events", Grassley said. She sat on it until last week to make maximum political use out it, which I think is despicable.

"This is not a man that deserves this", Trump said.

She says he pinned her to a bed and clamped his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream.

On Tuesday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) joined a choir of other irresponsible liberals by insinuating sinister actions by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during his high school years based off a 17-second long clip she posted of the judge making a commonly used joke back in 2015.

"It is the Senate's constitutional responsibility to assess the nominees, and then if we need additional help from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the committee could ask for it", Collins said in an interview on ME radio station WVOM.

With the sole goal of destroying Judge Kavanaugh's reputation and his Supreme Court bid, Christine Ford is bringing forward a 35-year-old assault claim from high school.

Judge Kavanaugh has called the allegation "completely false".

An Aspirin a Day Won't Make Healthy Adults Live Longer, Study Shows

Trump defends court nominee Kavanaugh, wants to hear from accuser
He declined to say whether Kavanaugh had offered to withdraw, dismissing the question as "ridiculous". That begins with protecting Ford from intimidation and threats - and taking her story seriously.


Kennedy said that he'd prefer a public hearing if Ford agrees to it, so that the American people can see and hear her in the interest of fairness.

Prof Ford declined to testify unless the FBI begins investigating the judge.

Grassley said in a statement Tuesday night that there were never any plans to sit Ford and Kavanaugh together at the witness table, as Banks told Cooper during the interview. And since that time, she has been dealing with hate mail, harassment, death threats.

"Doing so would not only signal that sexual assault accusations are not important".

What are Trump and other Republicans saying?

So...for me to hear that this son of a bitch is involved in the allegations of Kavanaugh attempting to rape a girl in high school comes as no surprise to me.

"It's a process, and we all feel - speaking for all of the Republicans - we feel that we want to go through this process and we want to give everybody a chance to say what they have to say". If she shows, or makes arrangements to testify behind closed doors or to committee staffers, fine. We've offered Dr. Ford the opportunity to share her story with the committee, as her attorney said yesterday she was willing to do. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who has been outspoken in her skepticism of Kavanaugh, tweeted on Wednesday that she hoped Ford would accept Grassley's invitation to testify.

Both have called on Judge Kavanaugh and Prof Ford to testify under oath.

However, if a single additional Republican senator, such as Flake or Sen.
