A report this morning in Axios calls the Kavanaugh- Ford situation "ugly."
Yes it is ugly.
Republicans are privately worried about the risk unleashed by an explosive allegation of a teenage sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but still hope to push ahead to a final confirmation vote next week.
What they're saying: "This is the ugliest situation imaginable," said a source close to Senate Republican leaders.
And the person to blame is Dianne Feinstein.
A third person alleged by Christine Ford to have been present at the "party"- now also denies any knowledge of it:
A third high school student Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford claimed attended a party more than 35 years ago where the future Judge Kavanaugh attacked her denied any memory of the alleged incident in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, CNN reported Tuesday.Thus all three of those allegedly present have denied her story.
CNN obtained a letter from Patrick J. Smyth, a Georgetown Prep alum who graduated in Kavanaughs class, to Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). The letter was penned after Ford apparently identified Smyth as PJ another teenager who was one of around five people at a drunken gathering in a Montgomery County, Maryland, home in or around 1982.
I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as PJ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post, the letter, penned by Smyths attorney, Eric Bruce, reads. I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.
Ford was invited multiple times by Sen. Chuck Grassley to testify next Monday either in public or in private. At first Ford's lawyer said Ford was willing to testify. Then Schumer hatched a plan to delay that would delay the testimony- for about two years. He said that the FBI should conduct an investigation into Kavanaugh- as they have done 6 times already- knowing that the FBI already stated that it was done and would not being doing another.
Then a second Ford attorney repeated that as a demand from Ford as well. She will testify only after an FBI investigation of Kavanaugh that will never happen. For some reason, Ford now thinks she controls the Senate committee.
Let us be clear. Ford will never testify. Never. From minute one, this has been nothing other than a stalling tactic. It is meant to throw a cloud of stink on Kavanaugh- one that cannot be proven, but the left is more than willing to destroy a man who has an unblemished career by any measure.

She's distracted and is approaching palolsiism
They are demanding an fbi investigation so that democrats running in red states can say I didnt vote for kavanaugh because we requested an investigation and republicans refused to give us that investigation in an effort to cover up the crimes of kavanaugh. They reason that If they didnt have such an excuse, then they would likely lose their seat, but if they have an excuse, then they have a chance to retain their seat- They are deluded- and evil
The ugly thing about it is the eunuch Republicans extending credibility to this
lying scag ho.
[[She’s distracted and is approaching palolsiism]]
christine Ballsey was the one who made the allegation, who lied, who risked her credibility (and lost) so as to take down someone the satanic left doesn’t like.
To continue to make DiFi a part of this will only use up the resources that should be employed to nail her on the Chinese spy scandal.
Christine needs to pay a heavy price.
DiFi needs to pay an even heavier price.
Yep, made obvious when Ford says she cannot possibly testify until the FBI and CIA conduct a two decade investigation into, well, nothing. Laughable.
Dianne Feinstein.....the fresh young face of the Democrat Party!
Yes, almost every one of the Republicans on the committee and many others folded immediately, pleading to delay the vote and hold more hearings, before seeing what is going on. Limp wristed failure on their part. Too bad we can’t replace all of them.
...and to think this emotionally disturbed LIB lunatic is a “professor”. What a pathetic joke. I bet she suicides within a couple years. So sad.
Feinstein was and is stung by her leftist CA party thinking she wasn’t leftist enough.
She’s a doddering 85 year old fool but a vain one. She wants another term (and we want limits). This was an ego trip. Even Schumer, as craven as he is, is focused on the Court. She is merely focused on herself.
Its obviously not that ‘privately’
Cant those spineless jellyfish keep their phobias to themselves?
where the future Judge Kavanaugh attacked her
Note CNN states this as a fact, not an allegation. They need to be sued, too.
Feinstein needs to be checked into an assisted living facility.
Ford has crashed the #metooie movement into a brick wall. She has tarnished all women who have truly been assaulted and wants to come out about it!
Don’t believe one word from Axios.
There's a simple reason for that: She has a long track record as a political strategist and pollster.
From the first moment this woman's identity was revealed, the GOP approach has been all about political optics aimed at bolstering their support among suburban women.
Look at how Donald Trump has reacted to all of this. He has never appeared so dignified and normal since he announced his candidacy in 2015. This is all deliberate.
