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 Fords attorney to either use or lose Mondays opportunity to tell her story to the lawmakers who will decide Judge Kavanaughs 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 Fords 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.
