(Worthy News) - On Tuesday morning, Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford's expected testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee was being called the most-anticipated event in Washington in decades. By Tuesday night, the whole thing appeared to be off.

Through it all, as Democrats scrambled and re-calibrated their position, Kavanaugh appeared extraordinarily confident.

By late Tuesday, with Ford apparently refusing to testify at the scheduled hearing, Kavanaugh appeared to be regaining the support of Republican senators who were shaken by Ford's accusation. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., tweeted, "After learning of the allegation, Chairman Grassley took immediate action to ensure both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh have the opportunity to be heard, in public or private. Republicans extended a hand in good faith. If we don't hear from both sides on Monday, let's vote." [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
