With the ‘hearing’ now set for next Monday into whether Judge Kavanaugh did what Dr. Blasey-Ford accused him of 36 years ago, it’s time to admit that this is the lowest that Democrats have sunk since the ‘borking’ of Judge Bork or the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill fiasco.

Supposedly, both Judge Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey-Ford supposedly will both testify because both want their ‘day in court’. UPDATE: Now Ed Morrissey is reporting that Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford has been difficult to reach. If she doesn’t show up next Monday, the Democrats’ will have a ton of problems on their hands. UPDATE II: Chairman Grassley is threatening to cancel the additional hearing if Blasey-Ford doesn’t respond to the Committee’s invitation:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Tuesday raised the possibility that next week’s high-stakes open hearing to examine the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh could be canceled if the accuser doesn’t accept the committee’s invitation.

Grassley, R-Iowa, scheduled a hearing for Monday for Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford to answer questions from senators about the allegation. But Grassley said during a Tuesday radio interview that his office has reached out several times to Ford and her attorneys to discuss her allegation, but has heard nothing back. “We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours three or four times by email and we have not heard from them, and it kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?” Grassley said on The Hugh Hewitt Show.

If Blasey-Ford doesn’t respond, Democrats will have a difficult time accusing Kavanaugh of being a predator. If the accuser won’t step forward, she’ll be seen as playing political games.

There’s no way to prove or disprove the allegations. The Democrats know this. Next Monday’s hearing isn’t about justice. It’s about playing a political stunt.

    Since the accuser has said that his alleged improprieties 36 years ago should not disqualify him from being on the supreme court, she needs to be asked why she chose to bring it up now. Also, the dems want the FBI to investigate. They’ve performed multiple security checks on the guy the last 20 years and nothing has come up so what would be different now?

    The accusation is a second high school male was in the room watching the thing. The FBI can find the gentleman and put him in the position of facing criminal procedures if he lies to the FBI. Wouldn’t you want that step, and if not, why? It seems fair. It seems balanced.

  • Gary Gross says:

    I’d have a major problem with that since this isn’t about a federal law. That means the FBI is irrelevant in this instance.

  • eric z says:

    It’s about judging the judge. Why split hairs?

  • Chad Q says:

    The FBI is not going to investigate because it is not a federal crime. The locals said they won’t investigate unless the accuser files a complaint which is highly unlikely because she doesn’t know when or where it took place.

    My biggest question is why do democrats care when they allowed the same and worse behavior from Bill Clinton and why do democrats not care about Ellison? I guess accusers are only to believed when they are making claims against a conservative.
