This is just going on and on and on and on……
Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Ford through her attorney now says that she will testify.
Not on Monday.
Not without terms being “fair”
Not without her safety being guaranteed.
According to the breaking wire at CNN:
Christine Blasey Ford opened the possibility she would testify before Congress about her accusation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but an appearance Monday was “not possible.”
An email her lawyers sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee and obtained by CNN said Ford “would be prepared to testify next week” if the senators offer her “terms that are fair and which ensure her safety,” according to the paper.
The message came a day ahead of a 10 a.m. Friday deadline set by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley for Ford to decide whether she would appear before a hearing he set for Monday. It was first reported by the New York Times.
Here is the full email…
“I would like to set up a call with you later today to discuss the conditions under which Dr. Christine Blasey Ford would be prepared to testify next week. As you are aware, she has been receiving death threats, which have been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family have been forced out of their home. She wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety. A hearing on Monday is not possible and the Committee’s insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event. Dr. Ford has asked me to let you know that she appreciates the various options you have suggested. Her strong preference continues to be for the Senate Judiciary Committee to allow for a full investigation prior to her testimony.”
Terms that are fair? What does that mean? Has Brett Kavanaugh or the country been treated fair? Let’s have a debate on all of this.
Also, why would a committee of the legislative branch of the United States NOT want to make sure any of its invitees were not kept safe? This is just common sense.
I’m sorry that Professor Ford feels threatened. She should not have to feel that she is at an Occupy or ANTIFA rally. I would hope she realizes that Senator Feinstein and her crew leaked her letter and threw her under the bus and any blowback of this starts there.
If she comes to D.C., close off the hearing room so we don’t have any interruptions from the peanut gallery and let’s have a damn hearing.
This is really beginning to look like political theatre that is just meant to keep the Kavanaugh vote from happening.
As my colleague, Brandon Morse wrote the other day, Democrat’s Attacks On Kavanaugh Are About Protecting Abortion, Not Sexual Assault Victims and I agree with him.
This is just the ends justify the means game of the Democrats to protect the abortion lobby. They will ruin anyone who stands in the way.
This is not reasoned thinking, it is just sick.
