Kavanaugh’s confirmation process is a ‘trial by tabloid’: Sen. Steve Daines

Montana Senator Steve Daines (R) says both sides need to be heard, while the Kavanaugh-Ford hear.

Senate Republicans announced late on Tuesday that Rachel Mitchell, a decorated career of sexual offenses attorney with decades of experience taking care of the interrogation of Christine Blasey Ford, California professor accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault decades ago, at a scheduled hearing on Thursday.

He says that he wants the hearing to a “safe, comfortable and dignified” environment, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wrote in a statement that the move would help take the politics out of the process.

“The goal is to politicize, de -, the process and the truth, instead of sensationalism, and the senators will give the opportunity to start their election campaigns,” Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote. “I’m very grateful that Rachel Mitchell stepped forward to serve in this important and serious role.”

“The goal is to politicize, de-the process-and the truth.”

Grassley then took a clear shot to the behavior of Senate Democrats in Kavanaugh the hearings earlier this month. During this procedure, Cory Booker, D-N. J., suggested that he be expulsion from the Senate for the release of confidential Committee documents would be, and compared to the gladiator Spartacus.


“I promised Dr. Ford, that I would do everything in my power to avoid a repeat of the “circus” atmosphere in the listening room, we have seen that the week of the 4th. September,” Grassley wrote. “I have this extra step in order to establish questions of experts advise the fair and respectful treatment of witnesses.”

Mitchell, who has the Prosecutor’s office since 1993 and won several awards for her legal service, is currently on leave as the deputy county attorney Maricopa County Attorney’s Office in Phoenix, and the division chief of the Special victims Division, according to Grassley’s office. The law enforcement oversees of a variety of sex-related offences, such as child abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence.

Fox News is told that Grassley and Feinstein are likely to be the opening talk at the launch on Thursday will hear, followed by Christine Blasey Ford, the talk would be without time-limit.

This would be followed by a round of five-minute survey periods for each senator, were able to turn over the survey to the Council. The process would repeat for Kavanaugh.

Until Monday night, Ford’s lawyers have suggested that it would be inappropriate for external consultants to ask questions.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied all allegations against him.

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins, who had suggested as a key potential swing vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the use of external legal advisers, question, Ford said, the look with the all-male Republican contingent from the justice Committee would be desirable. But Ford’s lawyers have repeatedly pushed back on the request, which is not to say that you want a trial atmosphere.

The questioning is expected to center on Ford’s statement that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tries to remove your clothes in a Maryland house party, when they were teenagers. Ford has not said she is able to remember who is in possession of the house or why there was a meeting. According to Ford, says that they eventually escape to a bathroom, Kavanaugh her mouth covered briefly, as the music blared.


Ford told The Washington Post last week that there is a total of “four guys at the party”, where occurred the alleged episode, and that two — Kavanaugh and friend Mark judge — were in the room with her attack. You said that your therapist made a mistake by indicating, they said to him, in 2012, involved all four of the guys.

Guys, which is said to contain Kavanaugh, judge, and other classmate, Patrick Smyth — all of whom have since the Senate Judiciary Committee denied, under the penalty of crime, knowledge of the respective party in question, or misconduct on the part of Kavanaugh.

However, a wife Leland Ingham Keyser, a former classmate of Ford’s at the Holton-Arms all girls school in Maryland, has since then, been Ford as the fourth witness at the party. In a dramatic turn of events, Keyser, who describe never, not, Kavanaugh say as a “young” on Saturday night, you know, or remember the party with him.

Washington Post spokeswoman Kristine Coratti Kelly told Fox News that Keyser went to go unmentioned in the original story on Ford’s allegations because she was not reachable, and that the article was not intended to be a comprehensive record of everyone at the party.

“We are in the Twilight Zone when it comes to Kavanaugh.”

“We had no name Keyser in the original story, because we still don’t, your comment had reached at the time, as history shows,” Kelly said in an E-Mail. “The story of the raised never how many girls were at the party. The story deals with the question of how many boys were in the room with her – in the context of Ford’s explanation for what she was told was a mistake in your therapist’s notes”.

However, the letter from Ford to sen Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., in July, outlined their allegations, said: “The attack occurred in a suburb of Maryland-area home for a meeting that included me and four others.”

Feinstein has not reported the letter to your colleagues or to the Federal authorities until the beginning of this month, after a leak of description of the letter appeared in section in The axis. Republicans accused the Democrats of orchestrating that leak for political purposes, just a few days before a key Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote.

“We are in the Twilight Zone when it comes to Kavanaugh,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., told Fox News on Capitol Hill on Monday. Later in the evening, in an interview with Fox News’ “Hannity,” Graham said of the allegations against Kavanaugh collapsed”.”
