Lawyer Casts Doubt on Ford Appearing at Thursday Kavanaugh Hearing

Michael Bromwich, newly retained by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for her legal team, cast doubt on his client’s commitment to appearing at the scheduled Thursday hearing where Ford is expected to personally level her uncorroborated charge of sexual assault  by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh at a drunken high school pool party decades ago.

In the letter replying to one by Mike Davis, Chief Counsel for Nominations , Bromwich implies that Ford is not one hundred percent committed to appear on Thursday, raising serious reservations  about the Republican majority’s plan to have a sex crimes prosecutor question Ford, and stating the hearing plan “does not appear designed to provide Dr. Blasey with fair and respectful treatment.” Bromwich also complained that a “number of outstanding questions” about the hearing have not been answered.

The letter has been posted to Twitter by reporters including NBC’ Frank Thorp V, who noted, “This does not appear to be a done deal.”
