BREAKING! ACCUSER and KAVANAUGH AGREE on a day for testimony!! It’s NOT Monday [Updated]

Here we go, it sounds like they finally agreed to testify on the same day, and it’s not Monday.

BREAKING: Person briefed on talks says Kavanaugh, Ford tentatively agree to testify Thursday to Senate panel

— The Associated Press (@AP) September 22, 2018

That pushes the hearing way back. What do you wanna bet they demand more time or find some other random anonymous accuser? The Dems aren’t done with their dirty tricks, I guarantee it.

UPDATE: Here’s more on the agreement for Thursday from the Associated Press.

A tentative agreement has been reached for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hear testimony Thursday from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the woman accusing him of sexual assault from decades ago.

That’s according to a person briefed on the matter who isn’t authorized to discuss it by name.

The person says that lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford and bipartisan representatives of the committee came to the tentative agreement Saturday. Other terms of the public hearing will be negotiated Sunday.

The tentative accord could close days of brinkmanship over whether Ford would testify.

Here’s more from the Washington Post:

Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers, is ready to testify next week in a Senate hearing, her attorneys said Saturday, but an agreement about the terms of her appearance remained elusive.

Ford’s lawyers informed aides to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) that she was prepared to testify next week, but they stopped short of accepting Grassley’s offer for the California professor to speak before his panel on Wednesday.

“Dr. Ford accepts the Committee’s request to provide her firsthand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week,” said attorneys Debra Katz and Lisa Banks in an email to Grassley’s staff. They called much of Grassley’s offer “inconsistent with the Committee’s promise of a fair, impartial investigation into her allegations” and requested a follow-up conversation later in the day to continue negotiating.

AND….

Ford’s legal team planned to continue to press for a Thursday hearing, according to a person familiar with the lawyers’ thinking. Representatives for Grassley did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Other Republicans were skeptical of Ford’s offer. Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Tex.) tweeted the hashtag “#Rope-a-dope,” referencing to a boxing strategy of trying to tire out an opponent by making them consistently go on offense.

Yeah, this ain’t over by a longshot…
