Judge Napolitano on if Kavanaugh’s nomination in danger
After the sexual assault allegations against the Supreme court professor Christine Ford, Fox News senior judicial analyst are nominated by California judge Andrew Napolitano explains what comes next.
The White house said on Monday that the Senate judiciary Committee leans in the direction of the inviting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a Prosecutor, to testify before the panel, such as the woman’s lawyer said she would be willing to appear.
Christine Ford, a California-based professor who reveals her identity in a Washington Post report on Sunday, according to her letter to sen Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the alleged sexual assault. She said that Kavanaugh, 36 years ago, while in high school, low note, tried to remove it from your bathing suit and put his hand over her mouth, screaming as she tried.
Kavanaugh has denied the allegation, and the White house, denial.
But White House Advisor, Kelly Anne Conway said Monday on “Fox & Friends” that should be heard both Ford and Kavanaugh to the allegations.
“This woman should not be offended, and they should not be ignored. I think the Senate is in the direction of the tip to a reasonable approach to be that this woman heard, in sworn testimony, that judge Kavanaugh can be heard sworn testimony,” said Conway. “I spoke with the President, I talked with Senator [Lindsey] Graham and others. This woman will be heard.”
Conway said that the Committee would decide “how and in what form,” Ford to your account, suggesting’d share, it might be, in a public framework, or even over the phone. Conway, though, noted that Ford ‘ s account, while it should be considered, should also be “weighed against” other evidence.
“This needs to be weighed against what we already know, that judge Kavanaugh is a man of good character and integrity,” Conway said, noting he has been through half a dozen rounds to the FBI’s “security check”, and has “praised the women in every aspect of his life,” including former classmates, and the mothers of young girls that he coaches in basketball.
Meanwhile, Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, said in the NBC’s “Today” that her client would be willing to appear before the Committee.
“She is ready to take what it takes to continue their story,” said Katz, to testify answering “Yes” to whether Ford will agree to that, under oath.
Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote before the Committee is on Thursday at this point. The allegations that have thrown the timeline into question, however. Many Democrats have for a delay in the vote, and a handful of Republicans opened the door to this possibility.
But, Conway said, it should not be a delay, noting that even without Ford’s assertions, many democratic senators were planning to vote against him.
“Let us not deceive ourselves-long before this happened, there were Democrats said they would not Kavanaugh in the vote for judges or anyone President Trump nominated for the Supreme court,” said Conway. “We don’t make it very clear that these democratic senators … were interested, judge Kavnaugh significant record, his character and integrity, as testified by many women.”
Conway, though, answered Katz’s statements by telling the Committee members that you want to talk, let Ford to testify.
“You should testify under oath. The Senate Judiciary Committee, sees the headline,” she said.
