Class Action 1991
Two days ago Rush Limbaugh said aloud something I had been thinking. Christine Ford is not going to testify under oath.
The fact that she cleared her social media history, sent her letter to a House member with no jurisdiction which coincidentally avoids the penalties of perjury and the repeated efforts to stall were all clues.
Now the big gun has been brought out.
Thursday's hearing should be canceled in light of a disturbing new allegation of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh. The FBI must investigate ALL allegations.

I think this clinches it. The Democrat plan all along has been to spook either Trump or the GOP or Kavanaugh in order to get him to withdraw or to get Trump to pull the nomination.
All the bluster, all the talk, the New Yorker articles and Stormy Daniels lawyer all of it was to get him to cut and run.
Now it’s the day before the scheduled hearings. Ford has a choice, she can testify under oath under the same penalties of perjury that Kavanaugh has or she can cut and run. We’ve heard from Kavanaugh under oath it’s time for Ford to do the same.
I had been thinking that there was at least a 40% chance she shows up figuring that it would be tough to prove perjury unless they can find proof in communication with Democrat operatives and the deep state to protect her. Plus there is the risk to the gravy train if she cuts and runs.
Now seeing this tweet from Feinstein I’m thinking Rush is right. Ford might be figuring that Donald Trump is a Jacksonian and if any administration would pursue such a case it’s this one and it only takes one person to offer to talk, particularly if they are trading that talking for a lighter sentence on another matter.
Now I’m figuring it’s 90% that she cries “victim” and “unfair” and refuse to show with both the media and dems backing her up.
Politically it’s the best move for the left, the longer this goes on the more disgusted the non-pussy hat generation gets and the more likely this costs the left any hope of winning in the midterms. Better to cut your losses, cry “unfair” and then fund raise off of Kavanaugh in the hopes of winning in 2020.
Tomorrow should be really interesting.
