KAVANAUGH/FORD HEARING - Today at 9am- Red River Radio will broadcast live today’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in Washington DC. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and university professor Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of a past sexual assault, will appear before the Committee to answer questions. U.S. Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana is among the senators sitting on the Judiciary Committee. Yesterday he explained to Fox News what his plans are for today’s hearing.
"I'm planning on sceding all of my time to our new staff member. Now that doesn't meant that I won't decide to reserve some to ask a question myself. But right now I haven't sat down and prepared a bunch of questions ; I'm not interested in any 'gotcha' moments. Some of my colleagues have suggested that you're morally tainted if you don't automatically believe everything an accuser says. I think you're morally tainted if you don't give both the accuser and the accused due process and fairness and that's what I want to try to do Thursday."
The Senate Judiciary Committee has hired Rachel Mitchell, a career prosecutor with decades of experience prosecuting sex crimes, question the witnesses on behalf of the Republican members. Democrats on the committee will ask their own questions. You can listen to it live today beginning at 9am on Red River Radio or you can stream it live on redriverradio.org.
