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. Why is his decision to declassify those super-sensitive documents like signing the Apple user agreement? Stephen’s explanation is hilarious, in that very dark way we’re all learning to love.
