The cowardice associated with Republicans, or anyone, repeatedly allowing this Democrat travesty and destruction of the very hearts of men and women is appalling.

Accuser knows nothing about her four attackers she says earlier, then changes story to one attacker Greg Kavanagh. Did she even go to same school? Or does she remember?

Liberal women of the 'Me Too' are the new tool for the corrupt Liberal Democrats to destroy male conservatives such as the great Burt Kavanaugh with false accusations while they do not remember where and when it happened roughly 36 years ago in a swimsuit party? Strangely enough, the liberal Democrat activist woman professor of the Trump hating movement ‘Me-Too’ does not remember the probably 1981 or 1982 specific date when the ‘attack’ on her happened and where it happened, what kind of party was it as she was dressed with a bikini swimsuit? Judge Kavanaugh as well as his friend do not remember Professor Ford and did not participate in the high school party somewhere and sometime 36 years ago. Would anyone help professor Ford find the party place and the date when a swimsuit party for 15 years old girls and 17 years old boys took place? Did anyone see Burt Kavanaugh in this party? Did he wear swimsuit as well?

The gasbag d. fienstien already sent the information to the FBI and they retuned it because it was a joke. Now the democRat Party is demanding the FBI investigate. Never mind ongoing cases of fraud, robbery and murder let's investigate what happened nearly 40 years ago at an unsupervised gathering of, "teenagers." Does anyone really have to investigate to know what goes on at such gatherings of teens behind closed doors?
Frankly I don't care if bill clintoon stuck a lit cigar in her butt there are Statutes of Limitations, there is no proof whatsoever while there is plenty of clear, basic common sense that says she's a deranged, scatter-brain Drama Queen and all around useful idiot for the democRat Party.

Of course. Probably the first time we have agreed.

If there are no witnesses to back her up with factual details that can be substantiated, she is going to come away with nothing but a damaged reputation for herself.

I don’t care for Kavanaugh as a judge for a couple of reasons. Attempting to block his nomination with this kind of flimsy accusation will do more harm than good for Democrats.

Naughty girl wearing a bikini bathing suite, in a bedroom with the boys, is all that needs to be said. In high school we all knew who the "bad girls" were. And I think the girl's high school classmates should be quizzed about her conduct and reputation.

“Bad Girls” cannot happen without participating “Bad Boys”.

Most likely she made a bad choice. But the boys who are asking girls to trust them and then betraying that trust are evil. Because they know that people usually blame the girl for having bad judgment, that’s why they feel comfortable doing this kind of thing.

But just because many girls refuse these invitations doesn’t mean they have an easy time of it either. Because those who refuse are shunned or bullied.

At worst they may be blindsided by an especially aggressive boy who was angry by being refused.

I have seen all of the above happen.

That being said, I don’t necessarily think this accusation should go anywhere unless there is evidence. So far there doesn’t appear to be any.

If it’s true, then it is terrible bad luck that there is no evidence.

If it isn’t, this was an awful method for delaying the vote. It will backfire.

YOU ARE RIGHT !! another thing.......
any chaperones ? if not.... WHY NOT ? and what was this one slutty BAD girl doing following the boys around in her near naked body ? How is it no other girl had her bad reputation of following the boys half clad ! The other women who stand up for him, some being ex girl friends of his KNOW he was not the type that she is desperately portraying him out to be. What about HER CHARACTER witnesses ? anyone willing to portray her as a sweet and innocent little teenager she claims to be ?
ANOTHER STORMY type lose woman........paid by soros and the socialist party to tarnish Mr Kavanaugh.

I think the Democrats treated the Judge so badly for a week, they were relentless in their juvenile behavior, they thought if they then hit him with this horrible accusation, he would resign, and let them have the new nominee after the election when in their tiny minds they would have the majority in the Senate. It was so simple, hold their Stars letter they had since July, and spring it on the Republicans just before the vote. Nothing could go wrong. Except the Judge is a fighter, like the President, and they don't back down to their "lessers." Now their star is in hiding, because she know she lied for the "cause." And it backfired. She has to appear by Monday. This sacrilege has gone on long enough, And the best part....Ta dum! It will backfire in the Mid Terms, Big Time!!

Yes, but most likely retaliation for the way Merrick Garland was treated.

Doesn’t make it the right thing to do, but that is the motivation.

The atmosphere in Washington is toxic beyond repair.
