If I were Kavanaugh's team, I'd have Brett hold a press conference, take no questions, and say:
"The Senate should spend Tuesday and Wednesday before this week's vote and hold open hearings on this and interview Ms Ford and me. I cannot say more strongly that I vigorously deny the charges than that I vigorously deny the charges. But Ms. Ford clearly believes something happened to her in high school and though I again am adamant that I was not involved, perhaps a full and open hearing might either reveal that something happened and through the witness of public spectacle we can find an assailant or, at a minimum, provide Ms. Ford some closure. Again, I categorically deny the accusation against me. I did not do this. But we should not dissuade people from coming forward and I think a refusal to hear someone who makes such an accusation could hurt others who might be discouraged from coming forward. I look forward to answering the Senate's questions and showing the Senate I did nothing wrong and I have nothing to hide."
But me personally? I do not think the Senate should hold a public hearing on a single, uncorroborated 35 year old allegation. It sets a terrible precedent for future, single sourced accusations that lack evidence.
