World watches Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford’s assault testimony
As the world watches Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford’s assault testimony, there are a few anomalies that many are picking up on regarding her behavior.
As Ford delivered the opening statement claiming the Supreme Court Nominee’s assault drastically “altered her life” – she giggled before asking for coffee.
Brett Kavanaugh has responded to being accused of being “present” at multiple parties where women were allegedly gang-raped while he was in school. Kavanaugh released the following denial:
“This is ridiculous and from The Twilight Zone,” Kavanaugh said in a statement.
“I don’t know who this is and this never happened.”In what appears to be the latest stage in a strategically timed attack against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has revealed fresh claims from a third woman to make accusations of sexual assault against the Supreme Court nominee.
According to businessInsider: Following committee chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the prime Democrat on the committee, deliver their opening statements, Ford and Kavanaugh will each give statements and be examined individually.
Ford will testify first.

Rather than questioning the two witnesses themselves, senators can allow the five minutes they’re each allotted to an independent counsel, Rachel Mitchell, a career prosecutor experienced in handling sex crimes who was drafted by the committee’s Republicans.
The Senate is narrowly divided and Kavanaugh will need to convince a handful of Republican lawmakers, including Sens. Susan Collis, Lisa Murkowski, and Jeff Flake — all of whom appear uncertain — that he is innocent and fit to be established.
