For a moment there, we were growing concerned.
You see, our judiciary process has been stymied at bit as of late, with Judge Brett Kavanaugh being forced to respond to an allegation of sexual impropriety that supposedly occurred nearly 36 years ago. This has been exploited by the democrats in order to stall Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Over the course of the last several days, the nation has waited for Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser to make a decision about whether or not she will testify before a Senate committee…something that the President himself has indicated that he would like to see. After several missed and moved deadlines, it appears that we finally have our answer.
Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor at the center of a sexual assault accusation against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, has agreed to testify to representatives of the Senate Judiciary Committee sometime next week.
Although details are still being worked out, Ford’s appearance would put an end to a stalemate that’s lasted for several days, and engulfed Kavanaugh’s nomination in a firestorm of controversy. This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee’s ranking lawmaker threatened to advance a vote as early as Monday, in an ultimatum meant to compel Ford to tell her side of the story.
The accusation has ricocheted through Washington, costing Kavanaugh public support and stalling his march to confirmation ahead of the hotly contested midterm elections. Democrats are seen holding an advantage, with Ford’s defenders and critics trading accusations of political motivations.
Senator Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican who chairs the Judiciary Committee, had been negotiating with Ford’s legal team about whether she would appear, and under what conditions.
This is an ongoing story that we will sure to be covering more in the coming days.
