Will the Republican Party’s bullish insistence on pushing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh through despite numerous credible allegations of sexual assault and what appears to be a pattern of lying hurt the GOP in November’s midterm elections?
Conservative guest Ashley Pratte said so on MSNBC on Saturday. Pratte called the hearings “a very dark day” for women and pointed to polling that shows the decision was a disaster.
“They did have an imagery problem when it came to women anyway,” she said. “A Fox News polls showed already opposing—among women, they were 10% more likely to believe Dr. Ford. Among suburban women, that number jumped up to 17 points higher. I think going into mid-terms here and after these testimonies those numbers will only grow.”
Pratte said that she was thankful for Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) standing up and demanding an investigation of the allegations by the FBI.
“I see it as something that needs to happen,” she said. “I fully applaud and support Senator Flake for coming out and doing this. He really showed he was willing to put principle over party and he has done this time and time again.”

Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.
The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.
But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.
John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist
Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.
"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
