This could be the reason why the Senate Democrats and Christine Blasey Ford kept trying to delay a hearing and confirmation for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The New Yorker dropped a story from Ronan Farrow about a woman alleging that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during their time at Yale.

Sen. Chuck Grassley...

There is a reason Democrats and Ford’s team have been stalling both a committee vote and testimony in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. They managed to postpone things until Thursday, in an obvious attempt to gain as many extra days as possible. We covered today’s developments in Kavanaugh accuser to testify Thursday...

The attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford, who recently accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault dating back to when they were teenagers, repeatedly tried to delay the date of her testimony, if she ever testified.

First she wanted it to wait until after and FBI investigation, that would have...

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley gave Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, until 10AM ET to decide if she will testify on Monday.

Ford’s team handed out the terms for her testimony late Thursday night and I doubt it will sit well. First...

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.

Humanity 101: Do not threaten people, including those who accuse someone of sexual assault or may not vote the way you want them to.

The Hill published an article yesterday about how Sen. Susan Collins and her office have received threats over Supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Since Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations of sexual assault were made public, I’ve seen several instances of “this is why more women don’t speak up — do you see what’s happening to Ford?” Enough to make me uneasy about the comparison, which, to be indelicate is flat wrong.

It still looks like Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford will not show up for a hearing set for Monday, which has caused some mayhem at Capitol Hill.

The decision to not show up has caused the teetering Republicans to push for a confirmation vote if nothing happens on Monday.

It’s too early to say how the Brett Kavanaugh nomination will end. Certainly, things are moving in his direction.

If accuser Christine Blasey Ford does not appear at Monday’s hearing, several of the wavering Republicans have signaled they want to go forward with a vote.

Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her in high school, said she wanted to testify in front of the Senate.

The Republicans immediately made it known they wanted to hear from her. After all, these are serious accusations and she, along with all victims, deserve...

Hopefully today is a little calmer than yesterday when it comes to Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. We learned Monday evening that the Senate postponed his confirmation vote and scheduled a hearing on Monday with him and the woman who has accused him of sexual assault.
