Ford wants her Kavanaugh claim investigated before hearing

Ford wants her Kavanaugh claim investigated before hearing

But few have made as big a splash as Sen.

But Democrats also said Tuesday they were planning to attend the hearing even if Ford did not show up.

Democrats came out in support of Ford, saying the matter needs more time for investigation. "I expect all of the enlightened men in our country, cause there must be millions of men out there who are enlightened who also will rise up to say we can not continue the victimization and the smearing of someone like Dr. Ford", Hirono said.

"Dr. Ford may have been forced into the limelight against her will, just as Anita Hill was, but the treatment she receives should be different", wrote Lapidus.

But it was what Hirono said in response to a reporter's question that turned the most heads.

Meanwhile, Republicans are suggesting that Ford, whose allegations have upended Kavanaugh's nomination - the committee's vote was already pushed from Thursday to likely next week - will have one chance to testify, and one chance only.

"Guess who is perpetrating all of these kinds of actions?"

Sen. Mazie Hirono said her message to men in this country is to "just shut up and step up".

Republicans, he says, feel that this is in their grasp and they do not want to do anything to cause things to go off the rails. "Do the right thing, for a change". "From what I've heard you have 6 months to live, you disgusting slime", one message said. "Monday is her opportunity", AP quoted Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell as saying, a line that was echoed by other Republicans throughout the day.

"During every step of this process, I've found every single piece of information from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford eminently credible, honest and believable".

"We still haven't heard from Dr. Ford, so do they want to have the hearing or not?" The accusation comes weeks before Kavanaugh's nomination and has resulted in a political slugfest in the country.

There were other potential witnesses who came forward before the Hill-Thomas hearings, and then-Chairman Joe Biden declined to let them testify, something he now has said publicly he regrets.

Democrats are asking for an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry before the matter goes to a US Senate Judiciary Committee while Republicans are backing Kavanaugh, raising questions over the timing of such accusations. "I think that's going to [tick] off an terrible lot of people, including women, who are more prone to vote in this day and age than men are". "So the world does not come to an end because we don't fill all of the nominees".

"The hearing was scheduled for six short days from today and would include interrogation by senators who appear to have made up their minds that she is "mistaken" and "mixed up".

She said: "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing". That begins with protecting Ford from intimidation and threats - and taking her story seriously.

"Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday". "And now we have to do more than say, 'Well, look at the timing!' and 'Well, it's all politically motivated!"
