SEPTEMBER 21, 2018

     Ford can't answer questions of the alleged happening, and only wants to waste time in Kavanaugh's nomination. Demanding the time and date and seeking that Kavanaugh go first is crazy.  Who in the hell she thinks she is?  Republicans are ready to push ahead with a vote on Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh after becoming frustrated with his accuser, who has rebuffed numerous chances they have offered her to tell her story. Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican, said he is sticking with his plan to hold a hearing Monday to give Christine Blasey Ford a chance to detail her accusation that Judge Kavanaugh attempted a sexual assault against her when they were both teenagers — climbing onto her, attempting to strip off her clothes and stifling her cries for help.

     The judge has vehemently denied the accusations, as have others Ms. Blasey Ford says were witnesses. She, meanwhile, has backed away from her calls for a public chance to tell her story, saying now that she first wants the FBI to investigate the judge and to set her own timing for a hearing. Mr. Grassley rejected that, telling Democrats and Ms. Blasey Ford’s attorney to either use or lose Monday’s opportunity to tell her story to the lawmakers who will decide Judge Kavanaugh’s fate. He gave her a 10 a.m. Friday deadline to submit a written statement “if she intends to testify” Monday.

      “It would be a disservice to Dr. Ford, Judge Kavanaugh, this committee, and the American people to delay this hearing any further,” Mr. Grassley said in a letter to committee Democrats.  Hopefully Grassley will hold fast.  His fellow Republicans are increasingly miffed at Ms. Blasey Ford’s actions. Republicans are ready to push ahead with a vote on Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh after becoming frustrated with his accuser, who has rebuffed numerous chances they have offered her to tell her story.
