Senate Republicans Hire FEMALE Sex-Crimes Prosecutor to Question Christine Ford – Won’t Reveal Identity

Senate Republicans have hired outside counsel to question Christine Ford in Thursday’s hearing.

The attorney, a female, has not been identified due to safety concerns.

The Senate Judiciary Committee led by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) agreed to use a prosecutor experienced in sex-crimes to serve as an investigative staff counsel for the hearing.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said it is not uncommon to have outside counsel to do questioning in this type of hearing, reported FOX News.

Politico reported:

Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told POLITICO on Tuesday as he entered the Capitol for a weekly GOP meeting that “we aren’t announcing the name for her safety.” Asked if Republicans have received any indication of threats to the attorney they’re preparing to use, Grassley said: “I don’t know, but I guess we’re just being cautious.”

On Monday evening, the Senate Judiciary Committee officially sent out its notice for the hearing Thursday.

As usual, accuser Christine Ford is being a demanding diva because she believes she runs the Senate.

Ford is demanding the hearing be held in the Dirksen Senate building rather than the larger Hart Senate building to limit media.

The format of the hearing is still up in the air and the latest letter from Ford’s attorney, Michael Bromwich cast doubt on his client’s commitment to appearing at the scheduled Thursday hearing.

Senate Republicans have signaled they may be working through the weekend to confirm Judge Kavanaugh as quickly as possible.
