Grassley needs to tell them to go fuck themselves and proceed with the vote...

They want a damn CSI investigation over whether the bitch had her boobs grabbed as a teenager at a high school party that took place over 35 years ago? Are they mad?

Ford requests another day before Kavanaugh testimony decision, blasts GOP's response


Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford are asking for an additional day to consider whether she will testify against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and blasted Republicans for "cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor."

An attorney for Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers, said Friday evening in a letter obtained by USA TODAY that Republicans have created "tremendous and unwarranted anxiety and stress" on her by rushing the decision on whether she will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and requested more time to examine the terms of her testimony.

"Your cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor who has been doing her best to cooperate with the Committee is completely inappropriate," Debra Katz, an attorney for Ford wrote to the committee leadership staff Friday evening.

Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-IA, gave Ford and her attorneys a strict 10 p.m. deadline Friday to respond to the terms of her testimony and threatened to call for a vote Monday on Kavanaugh's confirmation if an agreement wasn't made.

"It’s Friday night and nothing’s been agreed to despite our extensive efforts to make testimony possible," Grassley said. "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."
But Ford and her attorneys say the rush has put an added burden on her. On Friday, Ford spent part of her day with the FBI reporting the threats she's received after coming forward with accusations that Kavanaugh held her down and tried to take off her clothes at a party when they were both in high school.
Kavanaugh has denied the accusation.

"The 10:00 p.m. deadline is arbitrary. Its sole purpose is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family," Katz wrote. "She has already been forced out of her home and continues to be subjected to harassment, hate mail, and death threats. Our modest request is that she be given an additional day to make her decision."

Grassley has already placed Kavanaugh's confirmation vote on Monday's agenda. It's unclear whether he will grant Ford and her attorneys another day to consider whether she will offer testimony to the committee.
But, it appears, the contentious back-and-forth is not over yet.

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee and attorneys for Ford have for days discussed the terms of Ford's testimony.

Ford offered a list of 10 demands, Grassley said, and the committee was willing to meet "halfway," calling some of her demands "unreasonable."

Republicans have offered Ford time to testify in front of the panel Wednesday, a day earlier than she requested, but a delay from Monday's scheduled hearing. They insist that she speak first, against her wishes, so that Kavanaugh can defend himself after her allegation is aired. But they agreed to her requests for security measures and that Kavanaugh be out of the room when she testifies.

Still unresolved is who will conduct the questioning. Grassley said Friday evening that the committee will "reserve the option to have female staff attorneys" also question Ford. The committee, though, has not officially announced whether it will elect that option, which would save the panel's 11 Republican men from the optics of questioning a woman claiming sexual assault.

The committee also declined to subpoena Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh who Ford says witnesses the assault, and others. "The Committee does not take subpoena requests from witnesses as a condition of their testimony," a letter from the committee to Ford's attorneys states.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Committee, fired back at Grassley's threat of a Monday voteand the strict deadline, calling it "bullying" of a sexual assault survivor.

"Bullying a survivor of attempted rape in order to confirm a nominee—particularly at a time when she’s receiving death threats—is an extreme abuse of power," she said. "I’m shocked and appalled by the Republicans’ refusal to wait 24 hours for a hearing and instead rush forward with a vote on Monday."

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-Rhode Island, a member of the Judiciary Committee, criticized the “counteroffer” and emphasized that senators, rather than committee counsel, must be able to question both witnesses.
"I will not forfeit my ability to question Judge Kavanaugh and anyone else who comes before the committee with testimony, no matter how uncomfortable it may make the 11 men across the dais," he said, referring to the panel's Republican members.

All 10 Democrats on the Committee wrote a letter to Grassley saying "the Committee majority’s treatment of Dr. Ford has unquestionably been worse than the disgraceful treatment that Anita Hill received 27 years ago." Hill accused now-Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment in 1991 and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle were criticized for their handling of the situation.

The Democrats called for more witnesses than just Ford and Kavanaugh, including the FBI, Kavanaugh's friend who Ford alleges was in the room, character witnesses and outside experts.

Can't fly, can't make the time asked, wants him to go first, No lawyers to ask questions, change the date, can't remember where it was or when it was, sat on the info for a few months, said she didn't want anyone to know but hited a far left atty, attended a March against Trump. This lady is something else. It's a shame the Dems are using this. All it's doing is making it harder for a real victim.

Fox is reporting Grassley gave her more time.

Man, the Rs are getting outplayed politically by the Ds again. Let's be real, if it was Hillary and a D Senate, they'd have jammed an activist judge through long ago.

Trump is not going to be happy.

They're obviously stalling for more time.

It's weird, first he said done on Twitter. Then he said one more day. Hanity said they should give her one more day. I bet Trump put a call in to give her another day. Why? Because I bet a PI found some dirt on her and they want her under oath.

More likely that they're responding to the backlash on social media as womens' movements have been hammering the GOP

Could well be.

Boy would that be a sight to see. And as we've seen with the Mueller nonsense, their schemes do blow up in their faces quite regularly.

That said, I still think she won't testify under oath.
