    It might not help prove her claim. But it might hurt Brett's credibility. Which is why I believe Brett is refusing to call for an FBI investigtion over this.

    Supposed to be nonpartisan or are? In my opinion they are not.

    It appears that it would be Chevy Chase, MD. Per the article, the statute of limitations ‘at the time’ was one year.
    Still, the report should be filed there. You have to follow the ‘process’ ( I sound like my boss!). I don’t understand why this was handled the way it was. There are systems in place to protect victims of SA. The local police could have quietly interviewed the people involved without naming her or him. I just don’t understand how it came to this.

    He is not refusing to testify, he just said he wasn't there. The FBI needs figure out the date, and work backwards.

    Maybe he can't. Kavanaugh outed Judge today as an addict "for decades." I know addicts who are literally missing years of memory. It seems these fellows, Judge and Kavanaugh both, have histories of over-indulging. I know Kavanaugh said today that he never blacked out, but I can't say I believed him.

    I don't think that Judge would talk to the FBI and if he did he wouldn't say anything to hurt Kavanaugh.

    I just don't see a reason or motive. JMO

    Is it really surprising that a man (Trump) who has almost 20 allegations of sexual misconduct against himself wouldn't care about a nominee's attempted rape. Sad for the country.

    He absolutely HAS refused to testify. Then he fled out of town.

    I don't believe him at all about his over-indulgence in alcohol. As the day wore on, his cheeks were getting rosier and rosier (what do they call that? Gin blossoms?) I think his lack of self control and smug attitude, and rudeness to some of the Senators were signs of a drinking problem. He was white-knuckling it the last couple of hours. IMO, of course.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! I am celebrating your freedom from the yoke of shame! How dare he! How dare they place women in this arena where they feel shame and guilt! Finished! We are finished with it!

    They are powerless little worms who have to pretend they have power. Ugh! Nasty boys!

    All drunk people commit crimes? I don't buy that argument. Judge is not up for confirmation so any crimes he may have committed on his own is irrelevant. JMO

    Judge was in the room. Of course what he could say under oath would harm K. That's why he refuses to be put under oath. He doesn't want to commit a felony by lying under oath, doesn't want to harm K, and doesn't want to put himself in legal jeopardy by being forced to confess to crimes that in Maryland can still be charged.

    Nonpartisan? Of course. Maybe we have a disconnect ?
    Hey, no big deal, it’s a common occurrence in any of these political type threads. :).

    I did not hear him refuse a polygraph (could have missed it)
    FBI investigation? He has been through 6 !
    All of his friends, family, co-workers, schoolmates, questioned 6 times!
    The vote was supposed to be over a week ago. The democrats want to delay the vote until after our elections in hopes that they take over the houses. Another investigation could absolutely cause that to happen.
    Personally, the only person- I would like to see fully investigated is Dr. Ford.

    My point was that he left out the other things he did. Just like this afternoon when he said he didn’t have time to do anything but work during the week in the summers and he was gone nearly every weekend in the summer of 1982. But he has notation after notation of social events throughout the summer, weekdays included, in his own handwriting on his own calendar. And not what I would refer to as lots of work. So I don’t consider him credible when he is describing himself. At all.

    I can hardly wait until the Supreme court determines that rape is a misdemeanor and it is a $25 ticket.

    So you're saying that people never lie when under oath? Forced to confess?

    This thread is getting ridiculous. Time for a break.

    Ever heard of a subpoena? It’s not voluntary. And lying to the FBI gets you time in federal prison. People crack. Plus, why do you think Judge is hiding out?

    I was assuming Judge is capable of integrity, and wouldn't lie under oath to either the FBI or to the Senate. You believe otherwise, I guess, which is .......interesting.

    Or isn’t a crime until you’re out of college because boys will be boys. Sigh.
