This could be a potential real "bombshell" story for a change: Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s former boyfriend of seven years has written a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, contradicting several things she said under oath, and Chairman Grassley is demanding an explanation. The man, who asked that his name not be released (and good luck with that) claims that Ford never mentioned Kavanaugh or being assaulted to him; that she flew with him, including on a prop plane tour of Hawaii, without ever mentioning a fear of flying; that he found her a place to live that was 500 square feet with only one door, and she never mentioned a fear of small spaces or a need to have two doors; and most damaging of all, that he watched her coaching a friend on how to take a polygraph for a government job, despite claiming ignorance of how polygraphs works and denying she’d ever given anyone tips or advice on how to take a polygraph.

Many wondered why prosecutor Rachel Mitchell asked that last question of her.  Now, there’s speculation that maybe she knew of this letter in advance.  If so, then Republicans who thought she was asking pointless questions might owe her a big apology.

    Right now we have the tail wagging the dog - and it needs to stop.

    The handling of these types of allegations have been harmful to our society. The accusers are quickly given a platform that carries substantial authority, such as a Senate hearing, without adequate vetting. That shouldn't happen.

    What should happen? Accusers should be directed to file reports with local law enforcement. Then it is up to local law enforcement to investigate and refer for criminal action or hand off to another agency. Only when the accusations have been vetted by local law enforcement should they be allowed to be heard by a body such as the Senate.

    Rachel Mitchell did a fantastic job and she's very good at it. She made Christina Ford very comfortable and at ease, giving her plenty of room and rope to hang herself with.

    I wish somebody who is close to President Trump and somebody he respects would caution Trump about spouting off about Ford at rallies,etc. until after Kavanaugh is voted on. Flake and several of the other senators who are on the fence are turned off by his comments and it may be enough to convince them to vote no.

    Hey Mike - do you think after the mid-terms and the confirmation, that Dr. Ford will be SUED?
    Statements under oath that 100% positively declare a felony occurred should be evidence of perjury or slander... (IMHO)
    And I suspect her GOFUNDME assets would be of value in an out-of-court settlement ...
    I think any INNOCENT man should challenge his ACCUSER in the same PUBLIC arena.
