After much debate about Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault claims, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said that the GOP is looking into bringing on a female outside counsel to investigate.
Kavanaugh was accused of sexually assaulting Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during a party while the two were in high school. Ford has said that she would not testify on Monday, but would be willing to testify later in the week.
The move to bring in an outside counsel shows that the GOP is concerned about their image and how they are handling this serious case.
“Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are now looking into the possibility of an outside counsel who is female to question [Dr.] Christine Blasey Ford— if a hearing actually happens,” Wolf said.
“This according to a Republican source familiar with the matter. Our guys are reporting this could help the Republicans overcome its lack of any female Senators on the committee,” he said.
Wolf continued: “There are 11 Republican Senators, and the majority on the committee are all men. They are still working out conditions of any hearing. A hearing has not yet been confirmed, but if this happens it could be significant.”

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
