On the Hill with Doug Christian
Sept. 26, 2018
Republican have settled on Arizona’s Maricopa County chief special victims prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell to question the two witnesses testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday. The two are Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and Christine Brasley Ford, the woman who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her over thirty years ago.
Meanwhile, Dr. Ford’s attorneys submitted sworn declarations from four people attesting to Ford’s claims that she revealed years ago that she was allegedly assaulted.
On Friday morning, the Judiciary Committee is scheduled to move forward with a vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
“We’re gonna be moving forward. I’m confident we’re gonna win. I’m confident he will be confirmed in the very near future,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says.
Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer calls on McConnell to apologize to Ford:
“Leader McConnell owes an apology to Dr. Ford for labeling her allegations a ‘smear job.’ Let me repeat that, Leader McConnell owes an apology to Dr. Ford for labeling her allegations a ‘smear job.’ And he should apologize to her immediately,” Schumer (D-N.Y.) says on the Senate floor Tuesday.
