Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley extended the deadline for Christine Blasey Ford to accept the Committee’s invitation to tell her story. The new deadline is coming up very quickly – according to CNN, that time is 2:30 PM Eastern.
As Andrea reported, the initial deadline has been pushed back multiple times, and Friday night, Sen. Grassley extended it again.
Five times now we hv granted extension for Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed w her desire stated one wk ago that she wants to tell senate her story Dr Ford if u changed ur mind say so so we can move on I want to hear ur testimony. Come to us or we to u

As all parents know, if you continue to extend deadlines, eventually the deadline becomes meaningless. Grassley’s compromised with Blasey and met some of her demands (which, by the way, I don’t see how she gets to demand anything). Grab the popcorn and get ready to see what happens when this deadline is inevitably missed.
