The Senate Judiciary Committee is planning to hold a public hearing next Monday and expects to call Judge Brett Kavanaugh and professor Christine Blasey Ford to testify, according to a senior administration official and several top Republican lawmakers.

The expectation is that both would appear on the same day but not side-by-side on the same panel.

Judge Kavanaugh and Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexually assaulting her during a party in high school, will both come before the Committee to testify about the allegations.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) told reporters Monday that Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) “told senators there would be an ‘opportunity’ for senators to hear from Judge Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, in a public setting where senators would be able to ask questions.”

“Judge Kavanaugh looks forward to a hearing where he can clear his name of this false allegation. He stands ready to testify tomorrow if the Senate is ready to hear him,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement Monday.

This hearing will effectively delay a planned Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation originally scheduled for this Thursday.

    Grassley & Trump caved to the Democrats and put an end to the Confirmation Vote scheduled for this Thursday.

    The fake Judicial ClusterFuck begins this coming week and could stretch out to effect the mid terms.

    We will lose the House and Senate as a result of the two fucks who caved to the Dems.
