Grassley Sets Friday Deadline For Kavanaugh Accuser….

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has submitted a letter to ranking member Dianne Feinstein setting a deadline for Friday, September 21st, for Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Ford, to respond on whether or not she will appear for testimony to support her claims. [Read Letter Here]

Chairman Grassley – As you know, the Senate Judiciary Committee has extended invitations to Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh to testify on Monday, September 24. They have until this Friday at 10:00 a.m. to let us know whether they are coming. Dr. Ford has asked for the opportunity to be heard in a hearing, and I believe she should have that opportunity.

I recognize that testifying publicly about sexual assault allegations may be difficult for Dr. Ford, so I have offered her the opportunity to testify in any of four possible venues: (1) a public hearing; (2) a private hearing; (3) a public staff interview; or (4) a private staff interview. I am even willing to have my staff travel to Dr. Ford in California—or anywhere else—to obtain her testimony. (read more)

    Something is very odd about Ms. Ford’s allegation. She was 15 years old , unable to drive. She does not know the location of the incident. So how did she get home ? If she was in proximity of her own home and walked home then she would certainly know the location of a nearby house. If the location was distant how did she return home ? This does not add up.

      She conveniently does not remember how she got home. 🙂 But she can remember the exact positions of everyone’s bodies, a “long narrow staircase”, music, etc.

      She won’t say where because the home owner can confirm or deny which obviously means deny. She cannot say who else was there as so far everyone she mentioned says she is full of crap. She cannot say when it happened because that way the judge is unable to say where he was on that day. Get the drift, it is clearly set up so he cannot prove himself innocent.

      I agree. It goes back to the Rs abject refusal to take the offense, and stay on offense. And of course, their congenital aversion to effective communication. Of course an unresponsive and corrupted DoJ/FBI is always helpful (to the dems) too.

    I’m sorry, but I cannot identify with this woman at all. I have spoken here before about my attempted rape in high school, in 9th grade, by a BIG 300-400 lb minority janitor at my school, after hours, when I entered the building to use the restroom during a football practice. This would indicate to me that it was fall. Our “field” was a park about two blocks away from the school and there were no facilities of any kind there. Our school had no fields or swimming pools. My white privilege.

    I walked up the two big hills to get to the school. I was directed to the Teachers Lounge by a janitor with a mop in his hands, who I recognized, because supposedly the other restrooms were being cleaned. I had never been in this lounge room before. He steered me into the room, then immediately came in behind me and promptly locked the door behind us.

    He wasted no time in going after me. I fought back and somehow got away from him temporarily. The only thing I could see to do was to run into a small room within this room that had a door, and try to bar that door while screaming my brains out for help. The problem with that was that I wouldn’t be able to hear what was happening in the big room. Did he leave, or was he still waiting for me? The room turned out to be the bathroom I came for in the 1st place. It was a tiny internal claustrophobic room with a sink and a toilet and no window.

    I don’t know how long I waited, but I finally came out and he was gone. I don’t remember leaving the building, but I got the H out of there quick. I don’t remember the rest of that night. I don’t remember exactly when I finally told someone, but it was within days. I had to see this man every day at school, just as I had this year, and the prior year. I would have to see him for another 3 years after this year as my school was Grades 8-12.

    If he did it to me once, would he try it again? Would he attempt to silence me? Had he done this to others? I couldn’t live with any of these scenarios. I told my best friend. She convinced me to tell our Spanish teacher, a hip, cool gal. She convinced me to tell my school counselor, who I had a great relationship with as well. She took me very seriously. The school immediately took action and set me up for a lie detector. The letter came to my home and that is how my parents found out…

    After my lie detector test he was fired, and supposedly he would never be able to work in THAT school district again. My only regret is that they didn’t throw the book at him, but there was not even a sexual predator registry back then, and I am certain the school district did what was most expeditious to them at the time. They kept out out of the news, just as they did the prior year when I was jumped and almost beaten to death by a gang of minority girls in the girl’s gym locker room after gym class… My white privilege.

    It’s been a hundred years, but right now I could draw a map of the route I took to get into the school, and the route he took me on to get to the lounge. I could draw a picture of the room and the bathroom within. I had never been in these rooms before, and I don’t believe I ever went in them again, except maybe with my counselor to illustrate what happened in these rooms.

    I can guarantee my prints would have been all over that door, and on anything that I might have been able to use as a weapon. I couldn’t tell you his name, but I could pick him out in a photo array or a line-up in a heartbeat.

    I was probably traumatized for awhile, and looked over my shoulder for him for awhile, but I don’t remember those details anymore. I could eventually put it to rest because I did the right thing. I fought back. I told on him, and he couldn’t do this anymore to anyone in my school or any other school in my district. I could sleep at night, and have for many years since.

      Women who have experienced real assault or real near-assault don’t forget every detail. Blasey conveniently remembers Kavanaugh’s full name, and the names of the other guys at the party (even though she did not attend their school), remembers a long narrow staircase, the location of the bathroom, the location of the bedroom, and the exact positions she and her “assailants” were in and how she ended up freeing herself (eye roll) … but doesn’t remember anything about the location of the party, whose house it was, even the year!, or even how she got home. Yah, all of the stuff that would help police do any sort of investigation. In the case of my experiences (I had one where I was nearly assaulted and another where I was given pot laced with some kind of narcotic) I don’t remember the guys’ names but do remember all other details. I could even take you to the locations right now, decades later. I still remember the layouts of the rooms where the incidents occurred. I know the years too. And those experiences did not traumatize me and make me have some kind of breakdown later in life, they made me smarter, more confident, more careful, and less trusting.

      Stupid b Blasey told her husband that she had suffered “physical abuse”. lol If someone tells me that I’m going to think they were in some kind of abusive relationship, either a spouse or boyfriend who was abusive or a parent or other kind of guardian who was abusive. And not just one incident but chronic abuse. Blasey is a total mess! And she’s some kind of psychologist or psychology researcher or something? Crazy.

        I think they said, Who do we know who went to school with him? Judge’s books were all out there, and were a perfect fit for a drunken frat boy binge ending in assault. The rest is all icing on the cake and could be fabricated by anyone with TDS, and there is a H of a lot of these pussy hats out there. It’s all hearsay.

        I also think this was A RUSE to get President TRUMP “on the record” that “women should be heard”. Think about it.

        In essence, at least two women blackmailed him to keep their alleged “consensual sex stories” quiet, got paid, and then spoke anyway.

        At least one is already writing a book to cash in, has a creepy porn lawyer that won’t go away, and is delusional about not only running against, but beating President TRUMP in 2020.

        I think everyone processes differently, because every situation is different, but I think a lot of it hinges on whether you did the right thing then or not. That is what will eventually allow you to sleep at night, in peace.

        I can’t remember a lot of details now, but that is because I felt I wiped the slate clean way back then, and went on with life. My RAM didn’t need to save that info anymore for immediate access, and drag it out to slap me over and over for years because I did nothing.

        My theory is that 95% of people who pursue psychology as an avocation do so because they were led to the field by their own experiences. I’m not a psychologist. But one of my undergraduate degrees is in psychology. I was personally led to the topic by my own issues and actually did my senior thesis on the particular issue that brought me to the major in the first place — child sexual abuse by a family member. I’ve since dealt with many people who have seen psychologists/counselors for various reasons and also dealt with them as experts in court. Those experiences, bar none, support my conclusion. My guess is that Dr. Ford is no exception and has some major issues that led her to pursue a doctoral degree in Psychology.

        I also wouldn’t be at all surprised if this is a story she has been feeding her husband for years as the basis for issues in her marriage. She can’t tell him and her counselor she was lying the whole time, now can she?

    I was rereading the WaPo article, one of the first to be published, and I almost get the feeling that Blasey was offering herself up to help combat Kavanaugh in July but had reservations about possible backlash. And then Feinstein, who was desperate to do anything to stop the Kavanaugh vote, went ahead without Blasey’s permission and revealed all of the details to the media and thus to the public. Certainly Feinstein didn’t foresee that the GOP was going to offer Blasey an opportunity to testify so quickly. Poor planning by the Dems, as usual. This is what happens when you let emotions drive your actions. 🙂

    H/T to Larry, commenting on chiefio.com, who found this post about the “school of the scrubbed yearbooks”. It appears that there was a lot to scrub, and to put it bluntly, the problem wasn’t the Holton Arms, it was the Holton legs and kegs. At least as described in the yearbooks.

    Taken with a few grains of salt, the descriptions still portray a party-hearty atmosphere of the rich and privileged, who, like the elite DEMONcRATs, often have others pay both their bills and their penalties…

    If anyone remembers “The Preppie Handbook” (by Lisa Birnbach, et. al.), this could well be a fleshing-out of the adventures described therein. One wonders if Ms. Ford was perhaps a wallflower type dreaming of more attention. Sad to say, she’s brought all the wrong kind of attention to an innocent, honorable Judge and Supreme Court Justice nominee, and terrorized his family (for that is what she’s done, indeed). I hope and pray that TRUE justice is done, and I pray for Judge Kavanaugh and his family. Finally, Ms. Ford, Sen. Feinstein, et. al.: don’t wait too long to repent.
    Forever is a long, LONG time…

    Lots of possibilities here. As a divorce attorney, I’ve encountered many situations where two parties are telling me about the same event, the two stories are almost contradictory, and yet I truly believe they’d BOTH pass a polygraph if one were administered. Why? Because unless one is omnipotent, “truth” ends up being nothing more than reality + perception … Jane Doe clearly believes that John Doe is being unreasonable in “berating” her for being “fifteen or so minutes late because of work” a “couple of times” they’ve met for parenting exchanges. John Doe clearly believes that Jane Doe “routinely” arrives “a half hour to an hour late” in meeting him for parenting exchanges for the sole purpose of interfering with his parenting time. So, it COULD be that either Dr. Ford or Judge Kavanaugh are lying through their teeth. It could also be somewhere in the middle. Could be Dr. Ford truly, but erroneously, believes Judge Kavanaugh attacked her when she was 15 because for any number of reasons (perhaps she heard after the fact that Kavanaugh hung out with Mike Judge and he resembled the guy who attacked her). Could be that Judge Kavanaugh truly, but erroneously, believes he’d never met Dr. Ford when in fact she was at a party he attended and he never even noticed her. Perhaps they were both drunk and they “made out” but he doesn’t even remember it or had no idea she felt threatened by his behaviour. There’s no way to know for sure what, if anything, ever happened.

        It’s a “bat signal” for Collins to insist the lawyer’s conditions must be met to assure the testimony is heard.

      Ed Whelan: By one week from today, I expect that Judge Kavanaugh will have been clearly vindicated on this matter. Specifically, I expect that compelling evidence will show his categorical denial to be truthful. There will be no cloud over him.

        So this fit with Ed’s timetable. If she does testify on Monday then by Wednesday there will be evidence refuting Ford’s testimony. Vote out of committee by Friday.

        If she does not testify, vote out of committee by Wednesday.

            Thanks for sharing your find of Whelan’s comments via TGP.

            If the theory of BK being a victim of (perhaps purposeful) mistaken identity has been proved to be unequivocally correct as Whelan implies, it may induce Grassley to cave on his Monday testimony ultimatum in order to bring forth the exonerating evidence at a hearing later in the week to totally destroy Ford and the Dems before a committee vote is taken. Video of such a colossal take-down would become instantly historic.

            However, if the Dems know it is a genuine case of mistaken identity, I think they will have Ford’s lawyer scuttle her appearance using the excuse of “no FBI investigation” to avoid highly damaging public humiliation.

            The Dems would still unanimously vote “No,” but they would be terribly shamed in the public eye.

        Mr. Whelan is highly confident, and his pinpointing the release of the exonerating evidence to next week appears proof of his having very specific, inside information. I seriously doubt he would risk exposing himself to harsh criticism and severe personal and professional embarrassment should he be wrong.

        In his blog, he links a Washington Post opinion that BK’s “possible mistaken identity” defense may be accurate: “In a case without evidence, witnesses or corroboration, mistaken identity would be a welcome resolution.”

        I find it very, very odd that the WP would even hint that BK is innocent of the allegation…unless they know it to be true and cover for the Dems in general and DiFi in particular is necessary.
