Chairman Grassley Extends Final Deadline “10:00pm Tonight”…

WASHINGTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier today offered to move next week’s hearing to receive testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh to Wednesday, in order to accommodate one of several requests made by Ford’s legal team. The Committee also offered to accommodate certain other terms while respecting fairness, due process and the senators’ ability to fulfill their constitutional duties.

Chairman Grassley issued the following statement:

“Despite the fact that the July 30th letter remains hidden, my committee has been investigating the allegations and has heard from multiple witnesses since Sunday. Ms. Katz has discussed Dr. Ford’s allegations in numerous media interviews and said on TV Monday morning that Dr. Ford wants to share her account with the Senate Judiciary Committee. It’s Friday night and nothing’s been agreed to despite our extensive efforts to make testimony possible,” Grassley said. “I’m extending the deadline for response yet again to 10 o’clock this evening. I’m providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford’s attorneys don’t respond or Dr. Ford decides not to testify. In the event that we can come to a reasonable resolution as I’ve been seeking all week, then I will postpone the committee vote to accommodate her testimony. We cannot continue to delay.”

The chairman issued a notice of a committee executive business meeting, at which the committee can vote on the nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States.  (read more)

      Just chiming in about “Doctor” Ford, because I am SO furious about it. Obviously, the woman who should REALLY be heard is Keith Ellison’s ex. How sad is it that yet again we are living in another BACKWARDS day of reality, with everything opposite from the way it should be. My brain hurts.

        That and the fact that Ellison’s alleged physical abuse occurred recently while a full grown adult. They’re on Kav like a dirty shirt for something that allegedly happened almost 40 yrs ago while he was legally a BOY.

        Thank the msm for this gross injustice. Without the eager support and top cover from the media this would not have gotten off the ground. A normal, ethical “journalist” would have recognized that there is a presumption of innocence for Rs too, and that the burden of proof is on her.

        Furthermore all the kid gloves handling of this fraudster is nauseating. PC, as always, keeps the R narrative on the defensive.

    They’re determined to get to the bottom of that alleged heavy petting session from 3 decades ago.
    Investigative reporter Paul Sperry said, “I am told that if Rita Katz fails by 2:30 pm today to agree to a hearing –and under Grassley’s terms of 1.) Kavanaugh goes after Ford, 2.) no other witnesses & 3.) no restrictions on who asks questions — then Grassley is going ahead with committee vote on Monday. Period.”
    So, what will the democrat activist attorney and her democrat activist client do?
    About an hour away from the good senator’s latest “deadline.”

      I hope that deadline is true. Take the vote. Enough already. Why does she get 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, extensions? Why? Grassley has not even seen the unredacted letter purportedly written by Ford. Why is he even giving this any consideration when he has not seen the letter detailing the accusation? The democrats keep calling for an investigation. Into what? At the most she is claiming that she was groped through her clothes. The details the democrats have leaked reveal that Ford does not remember where it happened, what year it happened, who was there, how she got there. What teenage girl doesn’t have a memory of a petting session that did not go how they thought it would. One that may have even scared them. I don’t believe her claim of sexual assault. Even if she reported it the night it purportedly happened, there was no crime.

      I misunderstood your meaning “Kavinagh goes after Ford”. I took it to mean, commence with the lawsuits against her, so naturally I was cheering you on.
      I have to laugh at myself.

    Grassley needs to end this circus. It’s evident to everyone what’s going on. Just need to whip the votes and make sure he’ll pass the full Senate then vote it out of committee.

    Really…What’s up with… “we agree to appear BUT we still need to negotiate the terms”, BS??Appear & tell your “story” just like you sat & poured out your heart to the WAPO….No terms were required there….

    I hope her Attorney put her agreement to testify in writing…..If she backs out again, Grassley could & at that point should subpoena her as she has sullied Kavanaughs reputation.

    Lastly, Grassly should now object to Frankenstiens letter being introduced to the hearing….OR to any testimony that was not a part of her revelation to the WAPO….

      Now she agrees to Thursday…WTH? Here we go again. This is the day they were so desperate for, Thursday. What’s up with Thursday? The Dems have a plan and we are falling right into their hands!!! Senate rules require one week after the hearing for a vote, so he won’t be seated for the Oct 1 open!!!! That’s whats going on here!

        Does that mean he can be seated on the court, say on Oct 10th? And if no cases were heard between Oct 1st and 10th could he still hear cases?

        Wed or Thurs same – same….! week after either day still puts us past Oct 1…My real concern, as I posted yesterday, is that she is driving & of course any breakdown or minor accident COULD push this even into a n Oct hearing…..Also she could at last minute as I posted above, change her mind & back out totally having attained the goal of pushing this past Oct 1. That’s why as I said, I hope she put in writing that she will testify. Then she is open to subpoena and that;s exactly what Grassley should do at that point.

    News – former DOJ inspector general Michael Bromwich has joined Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team. (Note he also represents former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe). He has just resigned from his law firm effective immediately in light of objections within the partnership.

    Tucker Carlson did a piece on this delay tactic on his Friday program (still up on Gatewayundit.com homepage). He states—“if Ford testifies next Thursday the vote on Kavanaugh will be pushed back at least another week. In this environment, that very well means—forever. His nomination will be over.”

    Due to complex Senate rules, there is a strict time before the midterms for the WH to introduce and get a new candidate, and a Thursday hearing pushes the confirmation past the allotted time for the process to occur.

      To be straight up, a lawyer on the newest thread by SD regarding this subject states that Carlson was not thinking very well concerning the Senate confirmation details. Just an honest FYI. Don’t want to spread BS here.

    Quite telling statement regarding her feelings about Kavanaugh

    {SNIP} “She was like, ‘I can’t deal with this. If he becomes the nominee, then I’m moving to another country. I cannot live in this country if he’s in the Supreme Court,’ ” her husband said. “She wanted out.”

    Not that his name brought back vivid memories, not that she could not bear to him being a Federal Judge on the DC Circuit….NO….She could not bear to live in the US if he were in the USSC….

    That’s pretty telling regarding her actions in this incident…

    The only sense I can make of these deadline changes by Grassley is that unless/until Ford has testified, then Rino Senators like Collins, Murkowski, Flake, etc. have told him that they will not vote “no” on confirmation. I doubt they all think these charges have merit, but in the court of public opinion (driven by the MSM), they feel they need at least some “cover” with their more centrist constituency lest it becomes a campaign issue for their opposition that eventually gets them voted out of office.

    Ford’s counsel is now attempting to RE-negotiate terms of testifying without committing to anything. This stall tactic would suspend the Monday vote (unless Grassley says no deal) without committing to appear Wednesday!!! BS! In other words, another excuse can come down the pike Tuesday for why she cannot appear Wednesday, and on, and on, and on…..
