MICHAEL BROMWICH TAKES ENVELOPE FROM DEMOCRAT CONGRESSWOMAN, PUTS IT IN HIS JACKET POCKET
by Sharon Rondeau
(Sep. 27, 2018) — During a lunch break in the hearing for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to provide her testimony as to her allegation that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when she was 15, a Twitter user posted a seven-second video of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX18) handing one of Ford’s attorneys, Michael Bromwich, an envelope which he placed in his right lapel pocket.
The Twitter user, wade222, asked his audience, “Sheila Jackson Lee what was that?” [sic]
Bromwich represents fired FBI Deputy Dir. Andrew McCabe, allegations of dishonesty about whom are currently reportedly under review by a federal grand jury.
As of 12:40 PM EDT, when the lunch break began, Bromwich was by far the most vocal of the three attorneys accompanying Ford to the hearing, including objecting to Ford’s being asked a question which he believed violated attorney-client privilege.
On Sunday evening, Bromwich announced on Twitter that he was joining Ford’s current legal team of Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLP and thereby resigning from his position at another law firm due to its members’ objections to his participating in the closely-watched case.
In July, Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a house party in what she believes to be 1982 when he was 17 and she two years younger. She began her testimony following opening statements from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking member Dianne Feinstein.
In her opening statement, Ford made it clear that she had wished to remain anonymous, as she stated in her letter to Feinstein dated July 30, 2018.
Democrats on the committee are asking their own questions, while the Republicans, which hold a one-person majority, hired experienced ex-crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell of Maricopa County, AZ to ask their questions.
