The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault says the FBI should investigate the incident before senators hold a
hearing on the allegations.
In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," Christine Blasey Ford's
attorneys argue that "a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed
in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions."
As someone who has known both victims of sexual abuse, and people falsely labeled as perpetrators of it, the blatant weaponizing of this story for
purely political purposes is disgusting.
First we had feinstein setting on the story, now we have the accuser unwilling to testify. This is all just a blatant stalling tactic.
Here is my prediction;
First the dems will smear any republican that suggests the conformation go on as not caring about sexual abuse victims (despite themselves setting on
the story for 6 weeks and not caring about ellisons accusers)
Then I believe that once the republicans announce the date for the conformation, the accuser will say a day or so out that she is upset the FBI is not
investigating, but has changed her mind and does not want to talk to the senate.
Then the dems will demand the vote be put on hold again, further delaying the process. Somewhere along the line, I would not be surprised if an
establishment republican or two joins the dems in saying they demand to hear from this woman before voting (even though she had her chance)
They will also demand that kavanaugh and no republican be allowed to question the accuser about possible motivations or holes in her story, and say
that anyone who does that is attacking a victim.
The republicans should just say this woman can speak monday, if she misses her chance, the vote will go on.
The precedent that the dems are setting here is once again incredibly dangerous, but their msm mouth pieces will go along with it hook line and
Everyone should be outraged by this crap, no matter your feelings on trump or kavanaugh.
(sorry the video was set to private, should work now!)

But I really hope these silly political games are the worst of it... It could be so much worse. I hate to even think it, and I take no pleasure or
satisfaction in doing so, but I do. I do fear the worst before it gets better.
