The praise for Christine Ford’s testimony to Congress claiming Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh – who already has been investigated by the FBI six times – assaulted her while they were teens is unwarranted, contends talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh.

“When this is over, every bit of what Dr. Ford is saying here will remain uncorroborated. Every bit of it. When she’s finished, there isn’t a single witness that can or has corroborated what she’s saying.”

It’s not likely such facts will make an impression on Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination, since many of them announced their opposition to President Trump’s nominee before the name even was announced.

And Limbaugh pointed out that the media was falling into line with the Democrats’ agenda, with statements such as the one from Fox News’ Chris Wallace: “This is a disaster for the Republicans. … The Democrats are landing haymakers.”

“So that reaction is probably pretty common throughout the media, and the reason is that there’s so high expectations here,” he said.

But the reality?

“There isn’t any corroborating evidence. The woman’s got holes in the story. Her dates and times are unknown, unconfirmed. And yet none of that has been exposed. None of it! None of her flaws. None of the inaccuracies, inconsistencies in her story have yet been exposed.”

He continued: “The purpose of this is to get beyond it so that there can be a vote on Kavanaugh tomorrow. Well, is what’s happening here today going to move that forward and facilitate that or not? Now, in that regard, is it the television impact of this or the substance of this (assuming they’re gonna be different things) that will move the vote tomorrow?

“That’s gonna be totally up to [Sen. Chuck] Grassley and how he interprets what all happened today. But so far, in her opening statement and in all of the preguntas that she has been asked and all the things she’s answered, there isn’t a shred of anything new, ladies and gentlemen. There is nothing new. There is not a new memory of anything of substance. There is not a new fact. There isn’t a new recollection that would buttress something previously not quite remembered.

“There’s none of that.

“Nothing new.

“Nothing definitive,” he said.

“And at the end of it, none of it will have been corroborated. Not a single bit of Dr. Ford’s allegations to this day have been corroborated. From the beginning of this, every allegation she made has been uncorroborated. The Democrats, the media even tried to play a trick with that this week by saying, ‘Well, there’s affidavits from four people who she told the story to. Four people have corroborated what happened!’ No, they didn’t ‘corroborate what happened.’ They corroborated that she told them what happened.”
