If you had any doubt as to whether or not Democrats deliberately sat on the accusations from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against Brett Kavanaugh for political purposes, Sen. Dicky Durbin looking to stall her testimony should wipe all doubt AWAY.
JUST NOW: @SenatorDurbin told me he supports public testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford…but this week would be too soon.

They knew about these accusations.
While they cried they didn’t get the documents they needed to make a decision.
And now that they’ve leaked this woman’s name and her allegations they want to stall her testimony which would stall the vote … they are absolutely pathetic.
Democrats sat on this for two months before they decided to leak her name to the press. This week is not too soon. https://t.co/xBdepBHgM8

And according to the New York Post, Ford is willing to testify before the Senate.
From the New York Post:
The lawyer representing the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 said her claims are not politically motivated and she is willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, NBC News reported on Monday.
“She is willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth,” lawyer Debra Katz told NBC’s “Today” show.
She rejected any claims that her client, Christine Blasey Ford, has come forward now to scuttle Kavanaugh’s nomination.
Too soon like not close enough to November?

Gosh, that makes the timing seem even more convenient.
So the Democrats release Christine's story without her consent, and now that she wants to testify, they say this week is too soon? Not too soon. Dems started this show, now they want to stall it. Sounds like the plan is backfiring.

Of course it would. They can’t have him confirmed before mid-terms.
Call the vote R’s. @SenateMajLdr

Seems like dirty pool, but what else is new?
