Tentative agreement reached for Kavanaugh-Ford hearing on Thursday, source says | Fox News

A tentative agreement for a Thursday hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford has been reached, a source with knowledge of the discussions told Fox News.

In a letter to the committee, Ford’s lawyers said that she had accepted the request to provide “her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week” after Republicans on the committee set a 2:30 p.m. deadline for her to say whether she would do so. Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, had said a vote would proceed in the absence of a response from Ford’s team by the cutoff time.

Trump rally in Las Vegas – CBS News

Trump used the nickname, “Wacky Jacky” for the Democrat in the Nevada race, Jacky Rosen

President Trump addressed supporters at a Make America Great Again rally in Las Vegas on Thursday. His campaign-style event came after he canceled a series of rallies last week in the wake of impacts from Hurricane Florence.

Mr. Trump addressed supporters amid ongoing concern over his pick to fill a vacancy on the the United States Supreme Court. The president has spent much of the week defending Judge Brett Kavanaugh as he faces allegations of sexual misconduct stemming from his time as a high school student in the early 1980’s. He told reporters on Wednesday that Kavanaugh was an “extraordinary man” with an “unblemished record.”

Fox News Is Peddling Conspiracy Theories to Defend Brett Kavanaugh – Rolling Stone

Fox & Friends aired a segment alleging Brett Kavanaugh’s doppelgänger may have carried out the alleged sexual assault on Christine Blasey Ford

It didn’t take long for Kavanaugh apologists to put on their tin foil hats as part of their feverish effort to exonerate Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee. On Thursday afternoon, the Washington Post published an opinion piece wondering if Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is so “mixed up” that she confused the judge with someone who looked exactly like him. “As crazy as that sounds, it wouldn’t be unheard of,” columnist Kathleen Parker wrote of a possible mistaken identity.
