Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court is suddenly in jeopardy, with credible accusations of sexual assault being levied by a woman who says he violently groped her at a party while in his teens.
What will happen before now and next Monday’s scheduled hearings? A panel of four women and one man discussed it on Fox News’ Outnumbered on Tuesday.
Former Utah Rep. Jason E. Chaffetz took a dim view of the accusations.
“The question is whether this person is going to show up to the hearing,” Chaffetz said. “It’s a fascinating question. Does she or does she not testify. Does she want to go out does she not want to go out. The fact that she won’t even talk to the judiciary committee is a real head-scratcher.”
Chaffetz was immediately shut down by the four women on the panel, three of whom are conservatives.
“It’s not a head-scratcher!” said Melissa Francis. “Because it looks like it would be horrible. I wouldn’t volunteer for that, if you’re just a regular person. If she has a story to tell, and she’s brave enough to do it, lets;’ all listen to it. If she doesn’t show up it doesn’t mean she’s lying… it could just mean she doesn’t want to go through that horrible spectacle.”
Melania Trump ripped for bragging about helping children while her husband runs concentration camps for kids
Melania Trump was ripped on Monday for pushing her signature "Be Best" campaign against bullying while her husband, President Donald Trump, runs concentration camps for children along the southern border.
"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.
The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.
Border Patrol blocking Americans from donating toothbrushes and diapers for detained children
On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.
About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.
But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.
Michael Flynn’s legal team is making bizarre moves — signaling he’s still hoping for a Trump pardon
When disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn recently hired a new firebrand lawyer, Sidney Powell, it suggested he could be maneuvering to change his legal strategy.
And on Monday, new signs emerged that his legal team is looking to shake things up. Flynn had another status hearing on Monday before Judge Emmet Sullivan as he awaits sentencing for charges brought by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
In the hearing on Monday, Powell, who had been publicly critical of the Russia investigation before joining Flynn’s team, requested a security clearance to review documents in the case. This was a surprising move, because the government said that there was no classified information in the documents it had turned over to the defense.
