    Trump losing patience over Democrat stall tactics in Kavanaugh confirmation hearings

    Trump losing patience over Democrat stall tactics in Kavanaugh confirmation hearings

    “Get on with it”

    Trump is losing patience with the Senate Judiciary Committee. What should’ve been an easy round of confirmation hearings has turned into a complete sideshow thanks to Spartacus and crew.

    Thursday, Trump shared his disappointment with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

    Roll Call has the story:

    President Donald Trump has a message for Senate Democrats and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser about an upcoming hearing to discuss the sexual assault allegations against the judge: “Get on with it.”

    “I don’t think you can delay it a little longer,” Trump said of that session during a Thursday interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. “I have been accommodating,” he added, saying Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, should be allowed to speak to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    “Let’s see how it all comes out,” he said in Las Vegas before a rally. “They’ve delayed it a week and they have to get on with it.”

    Ford, now a California professor, has said Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her during a 1982 party when they were high school students; he again denied the charges in a Thursday letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley.

    The Judiciary panel has been working with Ford’s lawyers about a hearing for both to state their cases. They had planned a Monday hearing, but the accuser’s camp wants that session held next Thursday, Sept. 27, at the earliest as negotiations continue about the format and date of that highly anticipated hearing.

    Trump and Senate Republicans are eager to either hold the hearing or move to a committee vote that would set up a floor vote. Both are expected now to fall along party lines, but Republicans have enough seats to narrowly make Kavanaugh the ninth high court justice.

    For the second time in as many days, Trump called the entire matter is a “sad situation,” expressing regret that someone was trying to “besmirch” his second Supreme Court pick.

    Once on stage for the campaign rally for several GOP House and Senate candidates, he dubbed Kavanaugh “one of the finest human beings you will ever have the privilege of knowing or meeting.” The crowd cheered each time he mentioned the embattled nominee.

    So far, committee Republicans haven’t blinked and continue to move along unhindered by the gaming on the other side of the aisle.

    Sen. Grassley, the committee chairman set a 10 AM Friday deadline for Ford (Kavanaugh’s accuser) to decide if she will testify.

    Thursday evening, Kavanaugh’s legal team indicated she was willing to testify, but only under certain ridiculous and unfair conditions.

    “Pain Promotes Change.” This kind if injustice is going to continue until somebody makes it painful for slanderous accusers.

    Justice Clarence Thomas should have sued Anita Hill for slander and defamation as Hill had the burden of proof, not Justic Thomas. She would have lost and all the book and movie deals she reaped because her lie was not challenged would never have happened. His rulings relating to Sex would not be the subject of ridicule because the issue was not concluded in a Court of Law that requires EVIDENCE to be produced and would have help shut down the present day doctrine of, “Guilty Until Proven Innocent.”

    Judge Roy Moore should have sued his accusers. While the lawsuit may not have been settled in time to save his attempt at being elected to the U.S. Senate, it would have served notice on others that there is a consequence to making unfounded claims of slander and defamation.

    And if both of the aforementioned men had sued and most assuredly won because there was no EVIDENCE, then the present day attempt that has added to the Democrat’s “Circus”, would not have been delayed in confirming Judge Kavenaugh. The latest abomination is that the Republican Controlled Committee and Senate is held hostage to Dr. Ford who is a proven partisan activist and hack deciding when SHE wants to appear and under what conditions. MESSAGE TO REPUBLICANS: PLEASE GROW A SET AND ACT LIKE YOU ARE IN FACT IN CONTROL OF THE SENATE.

    My sense is that as usual, the Demtards have overplayed their hand and they are going to regret this latest abomination and they are going to regret this sooner than they may think, i.e., like this November.

      “Judge Roy Moore should have sued his accusers. While the lawsuit may not have been settled in time to save his attempt at being elected to the U.S. Senate, it would have served notice on others that there is a consequence to making unfounded claims of slander and defamation.”

      He has. He also dropped one of his lawsuits last week. He’s got nothing.

      He’s also being sued for calling one of his accusers (at least) a liar.

      You need to keep up…

        Typical. You can’t just correct the record, you have to make it personal.

        Why are you so insecure? Maybe you’re not as sharp as Milhouse, but you are obviously intelligent and articulate.

        So why do you need to bully people here?

        And why does Professor Jacobson allow guests in house to be subjected to your bullying?

        I was born on Usenet, so I’m fine with getting down in the mud and we wrestling pigs, but I thought the Prof was trying to run a classy joint here.

    I suspect she won’t testify because she doesn’t want to be subject to the laws of perjury. Grassley should have just sent her and everyone she accused of being there subpoenas for the Monday hearing.

    They are having a special Senate hearing just for her. When she snubs them because they don’t meet her “demands,” they need to go on about their business. A last-minute accuser doesn’t get to tell the Senate how and when to run their business.

    I hope the Republicans are taking notes. They need to learn to use these same tactics. In a close election (or appointment), you should develop some scurrilous information on the Democrat. Then, wait until it’s too late for an investigation (or for the Dems to select another candidate), and bring out the accusations. It worked for the Dems with Roy Moore.
