As Twitchy told you, Christine Blasey Ford’s account of the alleged attempted rape by Brett Kavanaugh has changed multiple times. It should come as no surprise, then, that Republicans like John Cornyn want to get to the bottom of this mess sooner rather than later:
NEWS: Top Senate Republican raises sharp questions about the account of Judge Kavanaugh's accuser.
“The problem is, Dr. Ford can’t remember when it was, where it was, or how it came to be,” Sen. John Cornyn (Texas) says. “There are some gaps there that need to be filled.”

And CNN’s Chris Cillizza is very concerned about that:
Walking a VERY dangerous line here….. https://t.co/GTKVb1Q7XU

Pointing out the numerous inconsistencies in Ford’s various accounts of what happened is “walking a very dangerous line”?
Very dangerous to ask questions about a witness's faulty recollection?
Thank goodness you aren't paid to opine on legal issues. https://t.co/wwVaRccpYz

But seriously. Cillizza’s willful rejection of due process is what’s really dangerous here.
Due process is dangerous?

Accusing someone of sexual misconduct that could derail his or her career is a serious accusation. You better be prepared to answer questions.

How is holding her to the same standards we hold Kavanagh to "a VERY dangerous line"..? If a woman accuses you of raping her, would you say we should take her at her word, no investigation?

If asking such questions is dangerous then we can’t have a hearing.

Maybe that’s what Chris and his fellow hacks want.
I’m trying to figure out how questioning the accuser’s disparate accounts of the supposed event is any different than questioning the man who said he never took part in such an event and her witness backs him up… Is this a new rule the left hasn’t told us about?

What exactly is the dangerous line here? Asking questions to determine the veracity of her story? Well then.

Asking for evidence is crossing the line? Guess I’m a habitual line-stepper pic.twitter.com/5pnSYzdOlu

What part of asking an accuser to substantiate her claim with basic details of the alleged crime is “a VERY dangerous line”?
— Dakota Derrick (@DakotaDerrick) September 18, 2018
Why is that a dangerous line? She doesn't remember that.

As in? Guilty til proven innocent???

That’s not how this works, Chris. That’s not how any of this works.
What's dangerous about wanting to get to the truth Chris?

Do you people want to know the truth or not? pic.twitter.com/PvT7mp37ti

They certainly aren’t acting as if they do.
Seeking the truth is the opposite of dangerous. It's the only safe path.
