This looks a little fishy. One of the lawyers now representing the accuser of Judge Brett Kavanaugh also represents Andrew McCabe, the Deputy Director of the FBI who was fired by Trump.
The Hill reports:
Former federal prosecutor joins Kavanaugh accuser’s legal team
Former federal prosecutor and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Bromwich announced Saturday he was joining the legal team for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.
“I’m honored to be joining Debra Katz and Lisa Banks in representing Dr. Ford,” he tweeted Saturday afternoon.

Ford says Kavanaugh pinned her down, groped her and tried to remove her clothes at a high school party in the 1980s. Bromwich has been involved in negotiating with the Senate Judiciary Committee to arrange her testimony. She accepted a deal Saturday to testify this upcoming week.
Bromwich also represents former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
McCabe was fired by the Justice Department in March before a scathing inspector general report concluded that he lied to FBI agents about his unauthorized disclosures to the media. A grand jury has reportedly been convened to examine McCabe’s actions.
Doesn’t that seem like more than a coincidence?
