Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
What more do we really need to know here? – In case you’re still thinking that the tale being told by Ms. Christine Ford has any credibility to it all, take note of this actual reality about the case:
These official letters from the 4 named by Dr Ford—denying any knowledge of what Dr Ford has alleged— serve the same purpose as sworn testimony.
We remain hopeful we’ll hear sworn testimony from the 5th, Dr. Ford herselfhttps://t.co/FBPUPOWJOU
— Senator Hatch Office (@senorrinhatch) September 23, 2018
So, Ms. Ford has claimed that there were five people at the party, and named the other four by name. Each and every one of those four people has now written letters to the Senate Judiciary Committee denying any knowledge of the “party” in question.
Now, add that to Ms. Ford’s own claims that a) she was drunk as a skunk, b) she doesn’t know where the party was held, c) she doesn’t know the date of the party, d) she doesn’t know how she got to the party, and e) she doesn’t know how she got home, and the inescapable conclusion anyone with the ability to think in a rational manner can reach is that there was no party and she is probably lying. There really is no other reasonable way to look at this.
Perhaps then it is completely and, like, totally fitting that lead attorney for the pathological liar Andrew McCabe announced on Saturday that he has joined the gigantic, amazingly expensive legal team for which someone is paying on Ms. Ford’s behalf. (Gosh, isn’t it odd that no one at the New York Times or CNN is working to find out who that might be? Why it’s almost as if the fake news media is afraid of what they might find.)
That’s right: Mike Bromwich has now joined the growing list of high-dollar leftist activist lawyers representing Ms. Ford in this matter. It is quite interesting that Ms. Ford feels the need to bring in a high-powered criminal defense lawyer to help protect her here. Man, it’s just really hard to see why that might be the c…oh, wait. Nevermind.
Also, note the last sentence in the tweet above by Shannon Bream: “5th person – Dr. Ford – is the only one who has not provided them a statement.” It is also key to note that despicable Senator Dianne Feinstein, who received the letter from Ms. Ford that started all of this back in July, still has not been willing to provide an unredacted copy of the letter to the full committee.
What do these two facts tell us? They tell us that, despite the ongoing delay-tactic machinations by her crack, huge, expensive legal team, Ms. Ford probably has no intention at all of showing up to testify. Think about it: Would you? She is telling a story that, even if it happened, was 36 years ago. She is the only person telling this story, which has huge, suspicious gaps in it. She has zero supporting evidence of any kind and even people who describe themselves as “lifelong friends” of Ms. Ford do not support her story in any way.
While Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell continue to go along with her lawyers’ stalling tactics under the pretense that she is making a “credible claim” that must be heard, under no circumstances are they going to allow her to testify without being under oath and penalty of perjury. Oh, and by the way, any written statement she provides the committee – most likely including the unredacted letter – would also be provided under potential penalties of perjury.
See where this is going? See why Bromwich, the high-dollar lawyer for the guy who got fired from the FBI for serial perjury, just joined the legal team?
Ms. Ford is nothing but a potential witness to a confirmation process. Nothing more. Dozens of other witnesses have testified during this particular confirmation process, and not one of them felt the need to retain a high-powered criminal defense lawyer or an array of high-dollar attorneys that rival the legal team hired by O.J. Simpson.
Really and truly, what else do we need to know about this case?
While her team of expensive lawyers will no doubt continue their stalling tactics with Grassley and McConnell, at the end of the day you should not expect their client to ever actually show up to testify. Because the retention of Bromwich shows she is very, very concerned about what might follow if she does.
That is all.
