Seems to me an investigation should be done so all this can be put to rest, and she can then testify in private.

Has anyone seen the pro-kavanaugh commercials airing on CNN? Yeah, I know a bunch don't watch CNN--I don't care about that.

Must be some big money behind him. Never seen anything like this.

It's an absolute shame what they are doing to this guy. How can someone just make up some fake news like that may not have happened 36 years ago and in Highschool? Seems like the timing of it all is way too convenient. This is a last-ditch effort by the left.

Should be handled by local agency where the incident allegedly occurred.

Because a precedent was set during the Clarence Thomas proceedings and the FBI investigated, appointed by Bush.

trump stated that it's not an FBI matter. But he doesn't have any skin in the game does he. Or lie at least a dozen times a day.

That had an allegation of happening in a workplace that was federal.....this allegation apparently did NOT occur in a federal capacity.

I would assume the local Sheriff's department would begin the investigation as the accuser can not recall where said incident occurred.

Also, I am not familiar with the local laws and statue of limitations on an assault from 35+years ago with respect to where the incident occurred.

Dems should just shut up now...

This is a stolen appointment anyway. Beat Trump in 2020 and impeach Kavanaugh.

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.
The same guy who earlier said in effect "I was there and nothing happened." A.K.A. the guy who's career such as it may be is now in ruins.

Probably not worth it for the family. I hope and pray it is worth it for the nation. I wasn't there, I don't know what happened but I do know that this is emphatically not the way Americans should react. MAGA should own up or STFU.

I'm of a certain age. I consider myself pretty darned sensitive towards women's issues. I agree with him. I've got some zingers back there. A lot of us do. Maybe not all, but a lot.

Your ball, Mrs. Ford.
This is the best news I've heard so far. "How about we don't turn this woman's life upside down any more than we already have, and find a more civilized, dare I say human, way forward." +1 Grassley

Yeah. Read the Anita Hill piece in NYT. One of the first things she says is about how uneven the playing field is.

I think we need, as a nation, to stop making this about Trump. Kavanaugh is a boozer and a gambler with substantial personal debt that disappeared mysteriously. I don't care what school he went to, I don't care who nominated him, he is not SC material. Let's collectively punt and move on.

It's beginning to appear that it happened in a gathering of minds.
I don't know that as fact but it's looking awfully flimsy.
Won't talk to the committee. Won't answer. Won't say anything more. Just barking from democratic politicians, demanding this and that. Wtf is Hillary doing calling for an FBI Investigation? Sit down and drink your vodka and toss back a few pills.

She opened the can. She should account for herself. Trump wants her to tell her story.
Nothing. Silence.
Won't work in this country. Sorry.

I'd be the first to say gtfo to Kavanagh, but how on earth can anything be substantiated?
Serious question.
