  • Breaking his silence on the woman who has leveled sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump on Friday said if the events were “as bad as she says,” then Dr. Christine Blasey Ford should have ‘immediately filed’ charges against the judge in the 1980’s. “I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents,” the President tweeted from Las Vegas, where he held a campaign rally last night. “Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago?” the President said in another tweet. I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2018 The radical left lawyers want the FBI to get involved NOW. Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2018 Those tweets came as the President expressed irritation with the confirmation delays for Judge Kavanaugh, even as GOP Senators were trying to work out an agreement with lawyers for Dr. Ford, on when she might testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Since allegations of sexual misconduct first arose against the Judge, the President has held his tongue both on Twitter and in public, skirting any direct comment, while saying he was ready to give the Senate extra time to deal with the controversy. But some of his frustration finally boiled over this morning. At a campaign rally Thursday night in Las Vegas, the President had stuck to his previous script, expressing his support for Judge Kavanaugh, but not delving into the allegations made Ford, who claims that Kavanaugh attacked her at a high school party in the 1980’s. . @POTUS: 'I want to tell you that Brett Kavanaugh is one of the finest human beings that you will ever have the privilege of knowing or meeting.' pic.twitter.com/g7ymaVvSJ9 — Fox News (@FoxNews) September 21, 2018 Mr. Trump’s tweets marked the first time he had challenged Ford by name, and questioned her story.
  • Here are two words that haven’t been back to back in the same sentence since Dec. 24, 2016: Browns win. >> Read more trending news  Former Oklahoma Sooner star and Browns rookie Baker Mayfield rallied Cleveland from a two-touchdown deficit in his NFL debut Thursday night to lead the Browns to a 21-17 victory against the New York Jets, ESPN reported. The victory snapped a 19-game winless streak and ended a 635-day victory drought. Joe Schobert’s interception of Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold with 1:21 to play and a Terrance Mitchell pick with 11 seconds left sealed the victory, sending Browns fans into a frenzy, ESPN reported. 'We finally put the pieces together a little bit,' Mayfield said. 'This crowd deserved to see that first win here at home.' Only 10 players on Cleveland’s roster were with the team the last time the Browns (1-1-1) won a game, ESPN reported. The Jets fell to 1-2. Mayfield led the Browns on their winning rally by completing six of eight passes in a 15-play, 75-yard drive that ended with Carlos Hyde’s second touchdown with 2:04 to play. Cleveland’s 19-game winless streak was the NFL’s second-longest since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The 1976-1977 Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost their first 26 games.

  • Faced with a GOP deadline on Friday morning to say if she will testify at a Monday hearing about sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a lawyer for Kavanaugh’s accuser told Senate Republicans on Thursday that her client was willing to appear for testimony next week, but not on Monday as originally scheduled. “She wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety,” read a letter sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee. “A hearing on Monday is not possible and the Committee’s insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event,” it continued. Republicans had given Dr. Christine Blasey Ford until 10 am on Friday to either accept – or refuse – the offer to testify at a Monday hearing of the committee. It wasn’t immediately clear if the GOP would be open to any delay. BREAKING: Lawyer for Kavanaugh accuser says woman would testify before Senate committee if terms `fair', but Monday appearance `not possible' — AP Politics (@AP_Politics) September 20, 2018 The developments came as a group of women who graduated from Ford’s high school joined to support her, bringing a letter signed by hundreds of graduates of the private Holton-Arms school outside of Washington, D.C. “We believe Dr. Blasey Ford,” said Sarah Burgess, who graduated in 2005, some 20 years after Ford attended the school. “I hope that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford gets the message that we have her back,” said Kate Gold, another 2005 graduate. “We are so proud to be here, but we are mostly proud of her, and her courageousness,” said Alexis Goldstein, who graduated from Holton-Arms in 1999. Ford has claimed that at a high school party involving students from the all-girls Holton-Arms, and the all-boys Georgetown Prep, that Kavanaugh attacked her in an upstairs bedroom in the early 1980’s. The alums of Holton-Arms arrived on Capitol Hill as dozens of protesters were arrested by police on Thursday in the halls of the Senate office buildings, as some chanted, “We believe Anita Hill! We believe Christine Ford!” Democratic Sens. Mazie Hirono and Kirsten Gillibrand have accepted a letter of support signed by more than 1,000 alumnae from Holton-Arms School, Christine Blasey Ford’s alma mater pic.twitter.com/nYYHGZHGTD — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) September 20, 2018 Echoing Ford’s call for a further investigation, Democratic Senators said like Anita Hill – Ford’s accusation deserved an official review by the FBI, before any hearing is held. “What is happening with the Judiciary Committee is really what I would call, a railroad job,” said Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), who has become more and more outspoken in recent days about the Kavanaugh nomination. “She is asking the FBI to investigate her claim,” added Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). “I believe her because she is telling the truth,” Gillibrand insisted. Republicans see the story much differently, arguing Kavanaugh is the victim of a massive smear campaign by Democrats. “Enough is enough,” said Rep. Lynn Cheney (R-WY), who urged GOP Senators to go ahead and hold the vote on Kavanaugh as soon as possible.
