Gut Feelings

It appears we’re at a standstill in the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Democrats are demanding an investigation by the FBI before there’s any testimony, Republicans say that if accuser Christine Blasey Ford wants to testify, in private or in public, she can do so next Monday.
