In an attempt to further the delay of the confirmation vote that would place Judge Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, there have been demands recently made by his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, that the FBI conduct a full investigation of the sexual misconduct claims that she recently has made. Several Democrats such as Senator Diane Feinstein of California have expressed support for the demands that Christine Blasey Ford has made about an investigation by the FBI. Such a delay would push the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court pass the mid-term elections and the Democrats are well aware that if the mid-term elections go wrong for the Republicans then they would have the power to succeed at keeping him out of the Supreme Court. It is these facts that make it abundantly clear what is going on. Christine Blasey Ford has become the Democrats weapon to try to allow them to do what they knew they could not do ethically, but then again I suppose all is fair in love and politics, wait a minute I mean war. Then again there really isn’t much difference between politics and war. Thankfully, for the time being Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley has no intentions of bowing to the demands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser.
While rejecting the demands of Christine Blasey Ford and the Democrats who back her Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa has stated that federal investigators would have no bearing on what Christine Blasey Ford told lawmakers in the next few days. In a statement that Senator Chuck Grassley offered to the media Tuesday he said, “we’ve offered Dr. Ford the opportunity to share her story with the committee, as her attorney said yesterday she was willing to do. We offered her a public or a private hearing as well as staff-led interviews, whichever makes her most comfortable. The invitation for Monday still stands. Dr. Ford’s testimony would reflect her personal knowledge and memory of events. Nothing the FBI or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr. Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay.”
Tuesday evening Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona backed Grassley’s statement when he tweeted, “When Dr. Ford came forward, I said that her voice should be heard and asked the Judiciary Committee to delay its vote on Judge Kavanaugh. It did so. I now implore Dr. Ford to accept the invitation for Monday, in a public or private setting. The committee should hear her voice.”
The comments of Senators Jeff Flake and Chuck Grassley came just hours after Christine Blasey Ford said she wanted the FBI to investigate her accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh before she speaks in front of the committee. For those of you who have been under a rock or in an alternate universe we’ll do a quick review. Christine Blasey Ford has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct that allegedly occured in the early 1980s while the two of them were in high school.
Both the accused, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, have been invited to speak before the Senate Judiciary committee Monday. Several media platforms have reported about a letter that was written by Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney that said, “a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions.”
At the time of this writing there has been no word as to whether or not Christine Blasey Ford will refuse to accept he invitation to speak in front of the committee Monday if the FBI do not fully investigate her accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
