Skip to comments.Kavanaugh accuser asks Senate to limit press access for hearing

Christine Blasey Fords lawyers have asked senators to limit the press who will be allowed in the room to cover Thursdays hearing with her and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and sought to dictate at least some of the outlets.
Coverage is one of a number of issues Ms. Blasey Fords lawyers are negotiating with Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Michael Bromwich said in emails sent Tuesday afternoon that he was requesting access for three robocams, three specific wire services, photographers from the Associated Press, Reuters and one unspecified service, and a pool reporter for newspapers and magazines. In a follow-up email he specified that the robocams should be operated by the CSPAN TV pool, and said he also wanted space for a radio reporter.
Those emails were among several seen by The Washington Times detailing the tense negotiations between Ms. Blasey Fords team and committee staff.
While committees sometimes limit press based on space at hearings, and some witnesses have arranged to have their identities shielded, longtime Capitol Hill watchers struggled to think of precedent for a witness dictating terms of press coverage.
In Ms. Blasey Fords case she has received threats since she went public with her story, and her team has insisted the committee guarantee her safety as she testifies, as well as limited access to the hearing.

She makes all these demands and it is just a delaying tactic.
Agree. She’s trying to push them with unreasonable demands
Pardon my intemperate language, but f*** this f***ing b**ch...
Uh, no. You wanted the “story” out here.
All media or no media, she doesnt get to pick and choose. What state is she in now, in her drive across the country?
The public has a right to witness this hearing to determine Kavanaugh’s innocence. We do not need to hear it filtered through the liberal Democrat Party media. It may be invented news.
unreasonable and she doesn’t want to limit the press, she wants to limit public access so the press she decides can set the narrative.
Has she never learned the word NO?
She wants to have her team supply the touch me doll she wont use one she is un sure of or un sanitary
And then she will go yak with Whoopi Goldberg or 60 minutes and tell her story in a place where there’s no fear of legal consequences for whatever she says.
And above all, she will be the victim.
Agreed. She will not testify. She never was and she never will. This is all just so much kabuki theatre.
She's looking for an "out" for that very reason. Grassley should say NO, giving her the reason to get huffy and refuse to show up, and put an end to this farce.
Only CNN or MSNBC are allowed to film and edit the tapes
Any specific requests about the chair she will be sitting in ?
I was wearing a swimming suit under my clothes
He tried to kiss me
He grabbed my breast
He tried to make me touch his penis
He put his hand over my mouth
He had a hold of my shoulders and was trying to dry hump me
He has done this to many women
He and other men get women drunk and get them to pull a train
Haha! That little hooligan must be 25 years old by now
‘...You wanted the “story” out here.’
Agree. She chose to go public.
