Hope you’ve got your shocked faces handy, because you’re gonna need ’em:

Kavanaugh will have call with Republican Judiciary Committee staffers at 5:30 pm today, per official familiar. Dems not on call as they continue to call instead for FBI probe

How do you like that?
Dems won't get on a call because they want an FBI probe instead?
These things are not mutually exclusive. https://t.co/EjMdGXPUtK

Why don't Democrats want to take this opportunity to ask Kavanaugh questions? https://t.co/s9SGQI0akB

So…Democrats aren't very serious about this, apparently.
Note that this has nothing to do with how Ford is treated, yet. https://t.co/455NnqnuOB

WOW!!! Tells you everything you need to know!

It really does.
Well look at that. Dems won't participate.
Like I said, it's not really about the truth. It's just a stall tactic. https://t.co/ighnQH34CS

Of course not. Democrats made it crystal clear throughout this process that they’re only interested in theatrics, not in substance. https://t.co/hnOzfkGbHr

Republicans are playing the Democrats’ game. Democrats aren’t even going to participate in questioning Kavanaugh on this issue, yet will claim the moral high ground.

Dems to follow up committee meeting by stating “we have not had an opportunity to review the statements made by Kavanaugh at today’s hearing, will need to postpone further…”
