Audio evidence of Christine Ford’s political adviser plotting in July against SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh

Ricki L. Seidman, 63, is a longtime Democrat Party cadre and a former Clinton administration official (Assistant to the President; Deputy Communications Director). She also actively worked against the Supreme Court nominations of  Robert Bork (1987) and Clarence Thomas (1990), and prepped Anita Hill before she testified before the Senate, claiming she had been sexually harassed by Thomas. Seidman was instrumental in getting the Anita Hill story made into a HBO television series.

On June 27, 2018, Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his resignation, effective July 31, 2018.

On July 9, 2018, President Trump nominated U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh, 53, to the Supreme Court.

From September 4 to 7, 2018, the Senate conducted hearings on Kavanaugh’s nomination.

On September 12, 2018, the day that the Senate Judiciary Committee was scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the top Democrat on the committee whose personal driver of 20 years is a Chinese spy, blocked the vote by forwarding to the Justice Department an anonymously-written letter, dated July 30, which accuses Kavanaugh of “sexual misconduct” with an unnamed woman when they were both high school students 36 years ago.

Four days later on Sept. 16, the author of the letter went public and identified herself as Christine Blasey Ford, 52, a research psychologist at Palo Alto University in northern California.

See “Christine Ford, the woman who accuses Judge Kavanaugh of sexual assault 36 years ago”.

On Sept. 20, 2018, The Hill reported that Christine Ford had hired Ricki Seidman to be her political adviser to help her navigate a potential hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Seidman confirmed her role in an interview with Politico.

Now, an audio has surfaced of political operative Ricki Seidman plotting a strategy to defeat Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. The audio was recorded sometime in July 2018.

The audio begins with a female voice asking Seidman “what are the best tools that Progressives have to challenge” the Kavanaugh nomination.

Seidman responded by acknowledging that given the Republican majority in the Senate, it is not “extremely likely” that the Democrats can defeat Kavanaugh’s nomination (beg. 0:34 mark):

“So, I will say at the outset that while I think that looking at the numbers in the Senate it’s not extremely likely that the nominee [Kavanaugh] can be defeated, I would absolutely withhold judgment as the process goes on, and I think that I would not reach any conclusion about the outcome in advance.”

Seidman then touts her experience of having worked “on one side or another” of Supreme Court nominations since William Rehnquist, which is hard to believe because the Senate confirmed Rehnquist’s nomination in December 1971 when Seidman was 16-17 years old.

Seidman continues (2:01 mark):

“I think that the way in which ultimately the Kavanaugh nomination needs to be approached is understanding what that standard is and the fact that Kavanaugh doesn’t meet the definition. I worry a little bit about, um, I think in this initial period, my sense is that everyone still scurrying to figure this out, and in terms of the groups that care about the issues, Justice Kennedy’s [resignation] announcement was a surprise and caught most — not everyone — people flat-footed, and the [Trump] administration knows this and that is partly why there’s a rush to nominate someone so quickly. I actually think that Kavanaugh was likely already chosen at the point that Kennedy would resign and that there was a nice show of considering people, for the White House’s political reasons.

But I do think that over the coming days and weeks, there will be a strategy that will emerge, and I think it’s possible that that strategy might ultimately defeat the nominee [Kavanaugh]….”

Then Seidman points out that Kavanaugh’s problem is the absence of women among his endorsers (5:30 mark):

“Of the 34 people who were the endorsers [of Kavanaugh] put out by the White House…none of them were women. Not a single one of them were women. And I don’t think it’s an accident that Kavanaugh spent so much time in his remarks talking about women because that is a clear problem with his record.”

Seidman acknowledges that only two Republicans would likely vote against Kavanaugh — Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. Seidman calls that “something that we have to get beyond” (7:50 mark).

Sure enough, a “strategy” did emerge “over the coming days and weeks” after Seidman said those words — a “strategy” that targets what Seidman had identified as Kavanaugh’s biggest problem, the lack of women among his endorsers.

And the strategy was to have a woman suddenly come forth, 36 years later,  accusing Judge Kavanaugh of attempted rape.

I’m beginning to despise these disgraceful, scheming women involved in leftist political activities. I don’t believe any of their lies. I wish they’d all stay home, bake cookies, and home school their kids. Oh, I forgot; they’re too stupid to teach their kids.

The deal is that if he isn’t seated next week, he will not be allowed to participate in the Supreme Court’s next session. This is why Feinstien and crew timed it the way they did. By playing along they are playing right into their hands again, as usual. They need to quit worrying about what the leftists are going to say about them and do what they have the authority to do. They are going to get called names no matter what they do. Who cares? They could seat him today. They just need to do. But, you watch, I’ll… Read more »

It only takes 4 days at the absolute most to drive cross country with enough rest, 3 is sufficient.

She had plenty of time to make the trip if she really felt it was important enough to do so. If you feel that something is that important to you, you do whatever you could to make such a thing happen!

Why and how with all that have been developing with this Ford woman accusations it is allowed to continue? Yes, she needs to talk but she cannot formulate an accusation she doesn’t remember the facts. Doesn’t the committee have enough to throw it all out, less allow “her” to dictate how it should be conducted? All this is unlawful! Have the laws lost all powers? This is all unbelievable to be happening in the United States of American. Where is “Justice for All?

By hiring this same POS political assassin should tell us all we need to know. I saw where Dan Bongino said Kavanaugh should sue the pants off all of those for destroying a good man without one iota of evidence. If she was damaged so badly, where is her police report. You read her history, chances are she didn’t even know where she was or whom she was with. People have screen shots of her FB page before she deleted everything where several months back she stated someone should come forward and accuse Gorsuch of rape. And now, here she… Read more »

Feinstein, Schumer & Co. are up to their old tricks, and Ford is their latest foil. She is detestable.

In the meantime, WHEN is Donald Trump going to go on the offensive FULL BORE??? Kavanaugh has already been investigated by the FBI, as per protocol of any SCOTUS nominee. When does Donald Trump come out CHARGING like a bull???

Looks like Seidman’s been eating a lot of Whoppers with fries.

The Left is going nuts at the idea of Trump strengthening the Supreme Court with yet another constitutionalist. Wait ’till Ginsburg goes comatose and Thomas decides this would be a good time to turn it over to a younger person.

After the November red wave PRESIDENT Trump will be set to do some REAL swamp draining. There will also be some high level perp walks. … MAGA

What happened? I don’t know Where did it happen? I don’t know When did it happen? I don’t know Who was there? I’d don’t know How’d you get there? I don’t know How did you get home? I don’t know Did you tell anyone? No. These sleazy democRATS keep saying that if a woman makes an accusation of sexual assault by a male that “she must be believed”. In Ford’s case there are no details, no evidence whatsoever of this assault but she “must be believed just because she said so” Take the case of Jaunita Broaddrick and Gennifer Flowers.… Read more »

The left is freaking out bc if Kavanaugh is confirmed they will loose the SC for a very long time. This is akin to death to them. They believe if they can postpone the vote until after the “blue wave” they can permanently keep him off the court for 2 years until the next “blue wave” in 2020 and when they elect their savior as POTUS. Then they will be picking the Judge(s)-they have to do this bc they cannot pass laws with the vote of the people liberal SCOTUS does it for them-that’s why they sue all the time… Read more »

So Ford is a research psychologist? Has she been dipping into the medical cabinet? More than likely she’s bit off more than she can chew and realizes both she and her supporters are going to come out looking like total asses in this bizarre case of flinging poop. Any first year law student could take her testamony and turn it into the punch line of a bad joke.

Well, the left has won another round! Grassley and the gutless Repubicans folded yet again. The left has won this one for sure. Prof Fraud is scheduled to testify on Thursday-AFTER the date when the votes (SJC and full Senate) can be held in time to seat Judge Kavanaugh for the opening of the SCOTUS session on Oct. 1. There’s NO WAY Judge Kavanaugh can be seated now, because the left ran out the clock. The Republicans had all aces and what do they do? They folded like a cheap beach chair! I said it before and I’ll say it… Read more »

I do hope that if this proves to be a political stunt this woman is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
