Kavanaugh investigation continues

Kavanaugh investigation

The confrontation between the two sides is rising. The conflict between Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and Professor Christine Blasey Ford who accused him of a sexual assault while they were teenagers involves the two main parties and the White House.

Both sides claim that they are being truthful. Democrats are insisting on an FBI investigation, while Senate Republicans after Donald Trump’s interference rejected this request. The Senate hearing was arranged for Monday when Blasey has her chance to be heard.

Doctor Blasey refused to appear in front of Senate Judiciary Committee and it forced many Republicans to come back to the side of Kavanaugh. Meanwhile, either new information has appeared or Doctor Blasey has finally agreed to testify since there will be another hearing in the case the next week.

There will be a meeting of Republicans this Wednesday, where they will possibly discuss Kavanaugh’s nomination again.

We have to remind you that the midterm elections are 7 weeks away. Delaying Republicans’ decision increases Democrats’ chances.

Lisa J. Banks, lawyer for Doctor Blasey, has said that her client does not mind working with the Committee, but she doubts that there will be an adequate decision if the hearing only involves herself and Judge Kavanaugh.

Banks wrote in her statement that a hearing with only two witnesses can’t be fair. It also can’t be called a good investigation of the case. She said that her client believes many witnesses have come out publicly, and they must be included in the process.
