Just wondering: If the Kavanaugh hearing takes place on next Monday

Will the questions (to Kavanaugh) be limited to ONLY to the assault? (I'm hoping they could ask background questions) Like what male groups he was associated with in High school! and OTHER type questions. TY in advance

5. But they didn't set the rules.

The main reason that things are different this time around is because, unlike with Hill, they're making the rules.

2. I don't think they'll proceed with questioning him if she doesn't show

No benefit to letting him get grilled without any ability to challenge her claims.
