The stars are lining up for Brett Kavanaugh to be confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court after Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, scheduled a vote for Friday morning (September 28) at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time.
The vote is set to take place one day after liberal professor Christine Blasey Ford testifies before the committee about her 36-year-old allegations that Kavanaugh had groped her at a high school party in 1982, when he was 17 years old.
Judic Cmte noticed POTENTIAL exec mtg for Friday. Still taking this 1 step at a time. After hrg Dr Ford & Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony- if we‘re ready to vote, we will vote. If we aren’t ready, we won’t. Cmte rules normally require 3 days notice so we‘re following regular order

Ford will be questioned under oath by Rachel Mitchell, an award-winning sex-crimes prosecutor from Arizona, according to a statement from the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Mitchell, who has been a prosecutor since 1993, has spent the past 12 years overseeing a division that investigates and litigates sex-related felonies, including child sex abuse and domestic violence.

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee said they will cede their time for questions to Rachel Mitchell after Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys initially complained about Ford being questioned by men only.
After it was announced that an experienced female sex-crimes prosecutor would question Ford, her lawyers objected again, as BizPac Review reported.

Many on social media opined that Ford is complaining about being grilled by an experienced sex-crimes prosecutor because she’s lying and is afraid her lies will fall apart under scrutiny.
Ford’s 11th hour claims that Kavanaugh had groped her on an unspecified day, month, and place at a high school party in 1982 has come under attack after all the witnesses involved claimed the incident never happened.
Last week: OMG SHE MUST BE ALLOWED TO TESTIFY
Five days ago: OMG HOW DARE THEY BULLY HER TO TESTIFY
Three days ago: OMG THESE OLD MEN ARE GOING TO BULLY HER!
Today: OMG HOW DARE THEY TRY TO LET A WOMAN TALK TO HER!
You guys… know we can *see you* right?

Christine Ford has since submitted last-minute “declarations” from four people — including her husband and three female friends — whom she reportedly told about the incident.
The problem for Ford is that the flimsy declarations are merely statements from her friends/husband claiming that she told them about the alleged incident (in 2012, 2016, 2017, and 2018) — decades AFTER it supposedly occurred.
The declarations do not “corroborate” Ford’s allegations that she was sexually assaulted; they’re merely statements that she told them about the dubious incident.
The declarations might carry some weight if they had been contemporaneous (i.e., if Ford had told friends about the incident shortly after it occurred, not decades afterward).
But Ford’s admission that she cannot remember the details of the alleged incident undercuts her own credibility, and that of anyone she discussed the supposed incident with.
Meanwhile, millions of Americans view the defamatory, last-minute attacks on Brett Kavanaugh as a vicious political stunt to obstruct President Trump by blocking his Supreme Court nominee. Even if it means destroying an innocent man, his wife, and two young daughters in the process.
“Democrats know that…proving or disproving a recovered memory is not the point. The point is destroying Brett Kavanaugh,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson explained. “Kavanaugh stands between the Democratic Party and the power it seeks. He’s in the way and he must be crushed, along with his wife and two little girls. ‘Sorry, that’s the cost of winning.’ No omelettes without some broken eggs.”
The Senate votes are down to the wire, as BizPac Review has reported. 41 Republican Senators have committed to a “Yea” vote in favor of Kavanaugh, while 10 are still undecided.

Judge Kavanaugh needs a minimum of 50 senators to vote for his confirmation, and a yes vote from Vice President Mike Pence would take him over the finish line, for a final tally of 51-49.
Patriots, please call the holdout senators’ offices and urge them to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.
Meanwhile, Christine Ford’s story continues to fall apart. In the latest development, Ford has still not turned over the results of her lie detector test or her therapist’s notes to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
