Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge, and Prof. Blasey

(A hypothesis originally tweeted.)

Problem is, the Republicans are trying to set up a hearing where one witness will be Prof. Blasey and all the rest will be favorable to Kavanaugh. Her lawyer and the Senate Democrats object.

Personally, I want to see Mark Judge under oath, on the stand. Based on his subsequent writings, I suspect that he put Kavanaugh up to it. There's no evidence that Kavanaugh is a compulsive rapist. There is only this one event. But Mark Judge, him I want to see questioned under oath. And then I want the Senate Judiciary committee to consider if a man so easily swayed to a criminal act ought to have a seat on the nation's highest court.

Problem being that Mr. Judge has already admitted being a blackout drunkard, so any testimony he could provide would be highly unreliable, and even a Reagan-esque "I cannot recall."

Former Federal Prosecutor Renato Mariotti discusses the questions he would ask on Twitter. Unless Judge was blackout drunk most of the time I think there's good chance of pinning him down.
