Stephen Colbert presents a pungent review of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s mishandling of Ford’s charges and a preview of next week’s hearing, under the compassionate and caring eye of Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), its chairman. But we know what to expect, he notes, because “the US Senate is known for two things: moving at lightning speed — and not caring what abused women have to say about Supreme Court nominees.”

The Late Show host then moves on to the truly amazing and swiftly changing story of Trump’s attempt to declassify documents in the Russia investigation.

So to no one’s great surprise, they’re currently flooding social media and right-wing media bandwidth with vows to begin a civil war on Trump’s behalf after the FBI executed a search warrant at the ex-president’s Florida waterfront estate, Mar-a-Lago, and seized evidence in a yet-unspecified investigation. The rhetoric is mostly a mixture of over-the-top hysteria and dark threats, and it’s being wielded by everyone from congressional Republicans to anonymous militiamen.
