(Worthy News) – Next week’s plans for a public hearing to address a sexual assault claim against President Trump’s Supreme Court pick were on the brink of collapsing Tuesday, after Democrats who initially demanded a hearing called for a delay, and were backed by a lawyer for the alleged victim, who said she wants an FBI investigation before any hearing is held.
After insisting on a public hearing to hear Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats started demanding that Republicans “shut up, step up and do the right thing” and delay the hearing they set for Monday. They said the meeting was hastily planned and won’t provide enough time to summon witnesses and let them prepare.
Then, late Tuesday, Ford’s lawyer said the FBI should investigate her claims before any hearing is held, leaving it up to Republicans whether to hold a hearing without her, a move that could draw opposition from a few key GOP senators. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
