    Dr. Ford's attorneys now object to questioner ... and Mitch McConnell.

    Despite claims, over the weekend, that Dr. Ford would testify on Thursday (she's even, reportedly, made it to Washington, D.C. unscathed), Dr. Ford's lawyers sent a letter to Grassley Monday night, requesting the name and resume of Grassley's appointed inquisitor.

    Grassley made it clear, over the weekend, that he might use outside counsel in questioning both Dr. Ford and Kavanaugh, and although he never detailed it, his rationale is pretty clear: the Senate Judiciary Committee would quickly turn the event into a circus, playing for reporters, recording soundbites, and asking nonsensical, self-serving questions, rather than pursuing whether Dr. Ford's allegations have merit.

    Serious allegations merit serious inquiry -- a task an experienced sex crimes prosecutor would be better able to accomplish than, say, Sen. Cory Booker or Sen. Kamala Harris. Or even Sen. Ben Sasse, given his obvious, limited experience with prosecuting sex crimes.


    Kavanaugh Accuser's Lawyers Are STILL Fighting Thursday Hearing, Won't Agree To Outside Counsel
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    I wonder if it gets leaked where she is staying and dining while she is here for her visit.

    Her lawyer is just a minimal point better than Stormy Daniels slimeball.
