FEATURING JULIE MILLICAN – Thursday’s scheduled Senate confirmation vote for Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been postponed after a woman named Christine Blasey Ford accused the judge of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school. There will now be a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing next Monday where both Kavanaugh and Ford will testify about the incident.
On Monday the Justice Department said that Ford’s accusation, “does not involve any potential federal crime.” Meanwhile the President’s son mocked Kavanaugh’s accuser Ford on social media on Monday. Right wing media are also falling over themselves to belittle Ford, question her motives, falsely accuse her of making it up as a political ploy and more.
