How is this gonna play out?
Image politics could be in play this week?
The attorney representing the woman who is accusing President Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexual misconduct said Monday that her client is willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“She is, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth, yes,” Debra Katz, who is representing Christine Blasey Ford, said on NBC’s “Today” show on Monday.
Katz said during a separate interview on CNN that she has not been approached about testifying.
“We’ve heard from no one,” she said on “New Day.”
Trump White House seems to want to do a Trump on this…..
Attacking the woman….
“Of course we’re not going to pull the nomination,” said one White House official involved in the confirmation process after retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, a member of the Judiciary Committee, told POLITICO that he wasn’t comfortable moving ahead on the original timetable.
Four people close to the White House said they expected Republicans to question Ford’s vague recollections of some parts of the episode and why California Democrat Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member on Judiciary, sat on the accusations for months.
Three of them also said they expect the president – still shadowed by the pre-election “Access Hollywood” tape scandal – to go after Ford rather than to turn on Kavanaugh, who was among the judicial candidates pre-vetted and offered to Trump by the Heritage Foundation. They pointed to Trump’s history of denouncing his accusers and those who accused others, including the women who came forward last year to say then-Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore had assaulted them years ago…..
