iPhone : Dr Ford reasonably requested FBI bkgd check before she testifies so all the facts come out instead of just 2 conflicting stories w/o a resolution.

GOP delayed Merrick Garland for nearly a yr & now we can’t have short pause to get the facts?Give me a break. What are they hiding?

iPhone : If you are a survivor of sexual assault, you are not alone. We stand with you. We believe you. And if you need to talk, you can call 800-656-HOPE to reach a national, confidential helpline 24/7.

Twitter Web Client : Senate Republicans and the White House should drop their inexplicable opposition to an FBI investigation, allow all the facts to come out, and then proceed with a fair process in the Senate.

Twitter Web Client : Dr. Ford’s call for the FBI to investigate also demonstrates her confidence that when all the facts are examined by an impartial investigation, her account will be further corroborated and confirmed.

Twitter Web Client : I strongly support Dr. Ford’s call for an FBI investigation before a hearing is held. An immediate FBI investigation is not only consistent with precedent, it is also quite clearly the right thing to do.

iPhone : The FBI tells us that the White House needs to direct them to re-open their background investigation into Judge Kavanaugh. Now, the White House is saying it is up to the FBI. What are they trying to hide?…

iPhone : Chairman Grassley's announced hearing on Judge Kavanaugh is a small step: It has to be done right. It can’t be rushed. There must be witnesses. The FBI should be given time to re-open its background investigation. And Senators must have the necessary information before a vote.

Twitter Web Client : The White House understands very well that we aren’t asking to open a criminal investigation, but to have the FBI re-open and complete the standard background investigation for someone who has been nominated for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

Twitter Web Client : Instead of having the FBI investigate these serious allegations as part of the standard background investigation process, the White House has intentionally chosen to bury its head in the sand and make weak excuses.…

Twitter Web Client : I believe Professor Ford. If the FBI conducts a thorough investigation and the American people hear from her and Judge Kavanaugh, I think a majority of senators will find her credible.

Thanks to @theview for having me on today to have this very important discussion.…

iPhone : Senate Republicans ran a transparently partisan confirmation process and then immediately insinuated Prof Ford is being untruthful. They cannot impartially investigate these disturbing allegations. That must be done by the FBI, and the vote must be postponed until it is complete.

iPhone : Judge Kavanaugh’s credibility has already been seriously questioned because of his answers regarding Manny Miranda, Judge Pryor, and other issues during his time in the Bush White House, and now his credibility is even more suspect.

iPhone : Re: WaPo report on Judge Kavanaugh, Sen Grassley must postpone vote until, at a very minimum, these serious & credible allegations are thoroughly investigated.

For too long,when women have made serious allegations of abuse, they have been ignored.That cannot happen in this case.

Twitter Web Client : Usted le debe una disculpa a las 3000 familias en Puerto Rico. Deje sus ataques vergonzosos contra nuestros compatriotas fallecidos y enfóquese en su respuesta al huracán Florence.
