Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean weighed-in on the ongoing sexual misconduct allegations surrounding Judge Brett Kavanaugh, saying Democrats are “willing to do anything” if it means “obstructing his nomination.”
“I have said many, many times on this program these allegations must be taken seriously; Senate Republicans are doing just that,” said Sean. “The Senate Judiciary Committee has even offered to fly their staff anywhere in the United States to meet with Professor Ford for a private interview… It’s obvious the left is playing politics, trying to derail Kavanaugh’s nomination.”
“This is what Democrats are willing to do if it means obstructing the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh. Democrats don’t even want a serious investigation into this allegation,” he added.

BREAKING: Sen. Chuck Grassley Sets Friday Deadline for Kavanaugh Accuser
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley set a new deadline for Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser to respond to his request for her to speak at a committee hearing; saying she must officially respond by 10:00am Friday.
According to Reuters, Grassley fired-off an official letter to ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein requesting her initial, un-redacted version of the material she forwarded to the FBI.
“(Ford) continues to believe that a full non-partisan investigation of this matter is needed and she is willing to cooperate with the Committee,” said Lisa Banks, Ford’s attorney. “However, the Committee’s stated plan to move forward with a hearing that has only two witnesses is not a fair or good faith investigation; there are multiple witnesses whose names have appeared publicly and should be included in any proceeding.”
Feinstein stunned her Congressional colleagues last week when she confirmed she had forwarded Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual misconduct allegations to the FBI.

UPDATE: Kavanaugh Accuser Demands FBI Investigation Before She Testifies
The confirmation process of President Trump’s pick to join the US Supreme Court took a dramatic turn Tuesday evening, when Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser requested a complete investigation by the FBI before speaking with Congressional leaders.
According to the Associated Press, the lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford confirmed the professor would likely not attend Monday’s scheduled hearing surrounding her allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh approximately 36 years ago.
An FBI probe “should be the first step in addressing the allegations,” said Ford’s attorney.
GOP Senator Bob Corker pushed back against the request, saying “If we don’t hear from both sides on Monday, let’s vote.”
After learning of the allegation, Chairman @ChuckGrassley 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.

“It is imperative the Judiciary committee move forward on the Kavanaugh nomination and a committee vote be taken ASAP,” added Sen. Lindsey Graham.
