Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley gave a strict deadline for Christine Blasey Ford lawyers. Christine Blasey Ford is the woman who gave a non credible accusation of assault against Brett Kavanaugh. The Deadline Grassley gave was Ford needs to submit a testimony by Friday the 21’st that she will testify on Monday.
“I remind you that, consistent with Committee rules, Dr. Ford’s prepared testimony and biography are due to the Committee by 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 21, if she intends to testify on Monday,” Grassley said Wednesday in a letter to Ford’s lawyers.
Grassley states the Kavanaugh confirmation will begin on the 25th with or without Ford.
“I have invited Dr. Ford to testify regarding her allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. And in recognition of how difficult it can be to discuss allegations of this kind in public, I have also offered her the choice of testifying in either a public or closed session of the hearing. In response to my invitation, however, you wrote yesterday that “an FBI investigation of the incident should be the first step in addressing her allegations.””
Chuck Grassley also added a statement on Twitter:
Sen. Susan Collins also chimed in on Twitter. Collins is one of the few swing votes in the Kavanaugh confirmation.
