Dr. Ford is the worst possible witness for the GOP: She is a credible victim as well as an expert in the psychology of memory, trauma, PTSD, etc. They can't impeach her. Kav looks like a spoiled entitled rich brat throwing a tantrum next to her. If they confirm him anyway, they are doomed in November. When the Democratic House opens investigations that DO subpoena all witnesses of all events, etc. Kav is disgraced.
They should do him the favor of not confirming him now so he doesn't have to commit suicide later. He can just go back to being an appeals court judge. Confirming him destroys him.
People used to have more sense about skeletons in their closet, and keeping a low profile.
