Trump doesn’t think the FBI should investigate the accusation. He asks them to investigate all kinds of stuff. I wish this was as important to him as making Hillary Clinton look bad.
Trump feels sorry for Kavanaugh – he won’t even mention Ford by name.
Senate Republicans won’t call any witnesses – just Ford and Kavanaugh.
They’re trying to rush this through.

NEW: White House advisers are worried that more damaging information about Kavanaugh could come out. Two sources relayed rumors that Ford’s account will be verified by more women. Another said Ivanka Trump has told her father to “cut bait” and drop him https://t.co/aDtKT4PbRM

Brett Kavanaugh talking about his high school in 2015: “What happens at Georgetown Prep, stays at Georgetown Prep.”
I can't imagine any parent accepting this view. Is this really what America wants in its next Supreme Court Justice? pic.twitter.com/WhL8YeZQ78

If you think Brett Kavanaugh was "just a kid" at 17 but that Tamir Rice was a "dangerous thug" at 12, you might need to rethink what it is you're really defending.

Lindsey Graham wants to know how Brett Kavanaugh's accuser, a college professor, paid for a $200 polygraph test.
Lindsey Graham apparently doesn't want to know how Brett Kavanaugh paid for $200K in baseball tickets.
Reveals a lot of what's wrong with our country and politics.

Republicans have refused to release Kavanaugh’s White House documents that are relevant to the confirmation process. As a last resort, we’re suing to get them for the American people. https://t.co/jxPszGE9um

.@RealDonaldTrump just claimed that re-opening Kavanaugh’s official background investigation isn’t something the FBI does. FALSE. It's exactly what the FBI does. Until now it’s been a standard bipartisan process to have the FBI investigate new information raised about a nominee.

Despite his desire not to testify, Judge may still have relevant information to offer regarding his memory of Prof. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh during that time period and what he recalls about how they interacted with each other. His lack of memory should also be put under oath. https://t.co/upmuGLs0m1

Trump could be right on this one compared to the other people he knows – Cohen, Flynn, Manafort, Gates, etc.

The allegations against Brett Kavanaugh are so much more than a "he said, she said" situation.

It appears that Mark Judge says he won’t voluntarily testify under oath. If that’s true, the Senate Judiciary Committee must subpoena him. He has no criminal exposure (unless he has lied to the FBI), so he can’t take the 5th.

The penalty that Kavanaugh is facing here, in the wake of allegation of attempted rape, is not getting a Supreme Court seat. It’s literally the same penalty already imposed on Merrill Garland for the crime of…being nominated by a Democrat.
