Lindsey Graham Points Out the Obvious Problem with Blasey

8
Senator Lindsey Graham (R -SC) believes the sexual assault claim by Professor Blasey is a planned attack to destroy Judge Kavanaugh.

“I think it is part of a pattern, they can’t beat him on the law so they’re trying to destroy his life,” Graham said. “And the last straw here is this allegation that came about last Thursday.”

Graham then said — speaking as a former judge and prosecutor — the case is “too old” for criminal court and even “too hard to prove” for civil court.

I would like to add here that Blasey Ford can’t even remember the year it happened so how is Kavanaugh supposed to defend himself? He can’t say he was somewhere else at that time. It is an allegation that can’t be proven. How clever if planned!

“This is not that complicated,” Graham said. “It’s a thirty-six-year-old allegation, it’s a serious allegation, everybody needs to be heard but also people need to defend themselves.”

“The question for the Senate is there really enough evidence here given the nature of the allegation, how old it is, and the uncertain nature of it, to deny this man who’s lived an incredible life a promotion to the Supreme Court,” Graham said. “And if it was this bad, why did not the Democrats challenge Judge Kavanaugh when he was sitting right there in front of them?”

Then Graham brought up an excellent point.

“If Miss Ford really did not want to come forward, never intended to come forward, never planned to come forward, why did she pay for a polygraph in August and why did she hire a lawyer in August if she never intended to do what she’s doing.”

“And who paid for it?”

One thing people need to consider is that the professor and her lawyer are extremists. Extremists seem to stop at nothing.

MRS. FORD MIGHT NOT SHOW

Fox News is reporting that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Tuesday raised the possibility that there might not be a hearing at all.

Grassley, R-Iowa, scheduled a hearing for Monday for Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford to answer questions from senators about the allegation. But Grassley said during a Tuesday radio interview that his office has reached out several times to Ford and her attorneys to discuss her allegation, but has heard nothing back.

“We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours three or four times by email and we have not heard from them, and it kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?” Grassley said on The Hugh Hewitt Show.

Grassley suggested he couldn’t see a reason to hold a hearing if she won’t show.

“What would be the purpose of the hearing if Dr. Ford doesn’t want to respond?” Grassley said.

The committee hearing to confirm Brett Kavanaugh is scheduled for Wednesday.

WHAT HAPPENS WEDNESDAY?

It’s not clear if that would be held as planned. Ford’s attorney has said that she wants stipulations about what questions can be asked.

It is very troubling that Mrs. Blasey-Ford has accused the Judge of a serious crime for which he cannot defend himself. Yet, she does not hold herself responsible for proving it. This is a career-ending accusation but she thinks she owes him nothing. What if her memory is faulty? She was 15, drinking beers, she could be mistaken.

Worse yet, what if she’s lying? That would be pure evil.

Senators Corker and Flake will not be reliable when it comes time to vote. They aren’t really Republicans and they hate the President. Country and party are unimportant when it comes to their desire to hurt Trump.

Most pundits say that if Republicans cave on the judge over a vague 36-year-old claim by a far-left activist, they will hurt themselves in November.

  1. Why did Grassley even consider a hearing when Feinstein refused cooperation.

    He showed his lack of leadership when failing to control the hearing from the outset. We could see one, maybe two outbursts from the spectators but after two there should have been a warning, One more and all the spectators would be removed from the hearing. Instead, he let it continue again and again. All these feckless Republicans know full well this last minute charade was that, a charade. They are gutless and that may well be why so many don’t stand with Trump. He shows them up for what they are. If they were as dedicated as Democrats it would be to their benefit. No one likes a “loser” mentality.

    • Because the “R’s” are delusional fools who still think they can “reach across” that imaginary “aisle” and extend a hand of friendship and have it graciously received. In spite of how many times that hand has been chomped off at the armpit.

  2. So, here’s proof how Feckless Grassley is. What the HELL is the point of “allowing” the disruption of the Senate. They look worse for allowing it more than the actions of protesters.

    HH: Yes, you do. And in fact, even when the protesters jump…do you expect more protesters if Judge Kavanaugh shows up on Monday if he is testifying? Do you expect we’ll have a repeat of last week?

    CG: Yes, and that’s their Constitutional right to do it. They don’t have, they have a Constitutional right to speak. They don’t have a Constitutional right to interfere with the committee, so that’s why the police take them out. So I think that I, as far as the demonstrators are concerned, I’m going to be laser-focused on an even-handed and a fair hearing. And so I’ll keep the hearing going while the police take them out. I tell the police, you do your job, I’m not going to do like a lot of chairmen do, shut down the whole committee meeting until the room is empty. I want to use the time as efficiently as I can.”

  3. Feinstein had the info back in July, Ford doesn’t want to be known, Back in August the Professor took a polygraph and hired a lawyer but will not respond to request to appear. Fords Lawyer says she shouldn’t have to collaborate her claim, ……………WTF?????

  4. This whole, smelly gambit by the Democrats shows how low they will stoop; how willing they are to cheat and lie to get what they want; how unsavory they are. Can anyone honestly say, “Yes, let these Democrats run the country.”? They’re nothing more than gangsters.

  5. I feel bad for Judge Kavanaugh and his family. I know he is a grown adult but nobody deserves to be falsely accused. I was victimized 40 years ago and I will tell you there is nothing more I hate then to see women falsely accuse men of sexual assault. It is disgusting and it makes a mockery out of those who truly have been victimized. I remember every detail of the assault as if it happened hours ago. I was telling my husband there are laws that protect women but there are no laws to protect men who are falsely accused. I want to go to DC and fight to have that changed.

  6. All the above contributors are cool, calm and collective individuals, who are attempting to instill common sense into the minds of a group of bandits, who are not bent on a fair, simple and constructive resolution, for the simple benefit of making the vast majority of the American Population, Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike, to be proud of their great country, that the world’s population are craving to be invited into, as our family was! My estimation of the Democrat side, under Dianne Feinstein, is that they have other goals that they are focusing on, without consideration for the Rule of Law, and the rights, legal, political and social areas of the others. With the greatest respect, what I see, is a bunch of senile individuals, who suffer with dementia, as the only reason why their leadership of Dianne Feinstein down to the others, are continually realigning their thoughts and circumstances in this matter. The Republican Leadership needs to upgrade their control of this important Hearing of the Judicial Committee, for the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the USA. So it is high time that we all get on with the job on hand, that is well overdue!

  7. *RING!!* “Hello, this is Corporal Rayburn, Montgomery County Sheriff Office.”

    “H-h-hello? Is anyone there?”

    “Ma’am, you’ll have to speak up.”

    “I’m – I’m sorry. I want to report an …attempted rape and assault.”

    “What is your name, please?”

    “My name is Chrissy-er, Christine. Christine Ford.”

    “Christine with a Ch or a K, ma’am?”

    “That’s Doctor Ford.”

    “OK, ok. Who did this … attempted rape and assault…occur, ma’am?”

    “Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”

    “That was rather direct, ma’am. Where did this attempted rape occur?

    “Ah, awhile back. 1982, I think, or maybe 1983. NO! 1984!! I’m sure it was 1984, or it may have been 1982…”

    “I need a date, ma’am.”

    “I..can’t say, but I was 15, maybe 16…”

    “Ma’am. are you sure you haven’t been drinking?”

    “How dare you! I’m as sober as a judge!…er… well, you know what I mean…”

    “OK, ma’am. Let’s try this. Where did this, ah, ‘attempted rape’ occur?”

    “It happened at a party. There were four boys there, and I was there, and there may have been like 10, maybe 20, or 4 other people…you know, like…people.”

    “Four boys attempted rape?”

    “Yes…no…ah, there were two. They were both drinking heavily…”

    “Again, ma’am. Where were you assaulted? I need an address.”

    “Do you need the address? I just know it was a house…with a pool…”

    ” OK, ma’am. So you know the alleged aggressor, but don’t know the date. You don’t know the time. You don’t know the address. You don’t know the people. What DO you know about the crime?”

    “I don’t know…can I ask my lawyer? Or my political consultant? I’ll be able to give you more information once you question, arrest, indict, convict, and incarcerate Kavanaugh, then I’ll probably remember everything.”

    “Good night, ma’am.” **click**
