Grassley Blows a HUGE Hole in Feinstein’s Story by Exposing This Major Discrepancy

Senator Chuck Grassley ripped apart his colleague Senator Dianne Feinstein, for her “stunt” involving the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of attacking and “nearly killing her” almost 40-years ago, back in HIGH SCHOOL.

Grassley claims Feinstein has refused to follow proper Senate procedure by alerting him of these concerns months ago when she was first aware and has also failed to take place in any phone calls or further investigations he’s done with Kavanaugh’s accuser.

Daily Caller

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley blasted ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein for her handling of high-school-era sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The allegations against Kavanaugh surfaced Sunday after his accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, granted an interview to The Washington Post. Ford detailed how she sent an anonymous letter to Feinsten regarding the alleged encounter months earlier. Feinstein said she forwarded Ford’s letter to the FBI for review but never made the allegations public until stories began to surface around the letter itself after Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings ended.

Feinstein “has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information necessary to do our jobs. The minority withheld even the anonymous allegations for six weeks, only to later decide that they were serious enough to investigate on the eve of the committee vote after the vetting process had been completed,” Grassley said.

The chairman explained that “the standard procedure for updates to any nominee’s background investigation file is to conduct separate follow-up calls with relevant parties. In this case, that would entail phone calls with at least Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford,” adding, “I asked Senator Feinstein’s office yesterday to join me in scheduling these follow-ups. Thus far, they have refused. But as a necessary step in evaluating these claims, I’ll continue working to set them up.” 

Grassley is now grappling with senators calling for hearings regarding Ford’s allegations and Kavanaugh’s own desire to defend himself. The judge issued a Monday statement saying, “This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone.”

Kavanaugh and a lawyer for his accuser have said they are both willing to testify before the committee regarding the allegation.

Dems Scramble and Suddenly Hit the BRAKES on Kavanaugh’s Accuser

Senator Dick Durbin is now backing off his earlier push to have Kavanaugh’s discredited accuser testify publicly, about a so-called “attack” back in high school, where she claims that highly-respected Judge Kavanaugh nearly “killed her.”

Christine Blasey Ford has said she is willing to testify under oath, but no one has asked her.

Durbin, who is receiving backlash from the public, demanding that Keith Ellison’s victims also be heard, has now changed his tune.

Breitbart

During an appearance Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) reacted to President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault allegations, saying this week would be “too fast” to hear from his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

Durbin said the Judiciary Committee will have to “be fair” to both Kavanaugh and Ford, adding that it would be too quick this week to have Ford testify because of the importance of a SCOTUS confirmation.

“Let’s do this the right way, a thoughtful way,” Durbin stated. “It’s a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land. It’s a generation decision.”

DNC Chair STILL Silent on Ellison Abuse Demands an Investigation Into Kavanaugh

The hypocrites at the DNC are calling for a public hearing for a Kavanaugh’s accuser, who claims she was attacked and nearly “killed” at a house party during high school, 36-years ago, while completely ignoring the VERY credible, recent accusations from several women against DNC co-chair Keith Ellison.

Daily Caller

  • DNC chair Tom Perez called for an investigation into a sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh
  • Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of drunkenly trying to force himself on her while the two were in high school
  • Perez and the DNC have avoided taking a position on a domestic abuse accusation against Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the DNC

Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Tom Perez on Sunday said that a sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh “must be investigated thoroughly.”

Perez’s statement comes as the DNC remains evasive about a domestic abuse allegation against Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the DNC.

Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh on Sunday of drunkenly trying to force himself on her at a party when they were in high school — an allegation Kavanaugh has denied.

Ford’s public accusation came two days after The New Yorker reported the substance of her claim but did not name her as the accuser.

“This is a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land & this serious allegation must be investigated thoroughly,” Perez said in a statement posted to Twitter.

“The American people deserve answers, not a vote that is rammed through by Republicans. There is too much at stake,” Perez added. His statement came after an earlier version of this article noted the DNC’s silence on the Kavanaugh allegation.

The allegation against Kavanaugh puts the DNC in an awkward position, as Perez has avoided saying whether he believes Ellison or Ellison’s accuser.

Ellison is accused of physically and emotionally abusing his ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan. Like Kavanaugh, Ellison denied the accusation against him. (RELATED: Keith Ellison To Accuser: ‘We Don’t Have To Destroy Each Other’)

The DNC announced on Aug. 14 — just hours before Ellison won the Democratic nomination for Minnesota attorney general — that it would be “reviewing” the Ellison accusation.

But the committee has yet to announce the results of its review and Perez has since deferred to an investigation by the party’s Minnesota arm, the Democratic Farmer-Labor party (DFL).

The DNC has aggressively advocated against Kavanaugh’s confirmation but steered clear of the sexual misconduct accusation until Perez’s tweet.

DNC deputy communications chair Sabrina Singh did not respond to repeated requests for comment on the Kavanaugh allegation.

Like the DNC, the DFL has remained elusive about the details of its Ellison investigation — for example, who exactly is running the investigation, how they’re conducting it and what the status of the probe is.

DFL communications director Ellen Perrault did not return repeated requests for comment on the status of the DFL investigation.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist independent widely expected to run for president as a Democrat in 2020, called on the Senate to postpone voting on Kavanaugh’s confirmation until a full investigation has been completed.

“The allegation from Professor Christine Blasey Ford is a serious one that deserves a full investigation. Neither the Judiciary Committee nor the full Senate should vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court until that takes place,” Sanders wrote on Twitter.

Sanders’ quickness to lend credibility to the accusation against Kavanaugh makes for a clear contrast with his treatment of the accusation against Ellison, one of the senator’s closest political allies.

Sanders said he has “nothing” to say about the Ellison allegation when asked on Aug. 16 and has remained tight-lipped on the issue since then.

The Democratic push to postpone Kavanaugh’s confirmation comes less than two months before the 2018 midterm elections.

Democrats have about a one-in-three chance of retaking the Senate and are strong favorites to retake the House of Representatives in November, according to FiveThirtyEight.

HAPPENING NOW: Kavanaugh Hits Back at His Accuser in This Powerful Statement

Judge Kavanaugh has come out swinging against the absurd and disgusting allegations that he attempted to rape and “nearly killed” a liberal, anti-Trump woman back in high school.

He is calling the allegations absolutely false and says he is willing to testify before the Senate regarding the matter.

Washington Examiner

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Monday called a decades-old allegation of sexual misconduct “completely false” and offered to speak with the Senate Judiciary Committee about the claim.

Kavanaugh’s Monday morning statement rejecting the allegation comes after his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, spoke on the record with the Washington Post about the alleged incident that occurred during a party in the early 1980s.

“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone,” Kavanaugh said in a statement. “Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.”

Kavanaugh was spotted by reporters at the White House on Monday morning, though the White House did not return a request for comment about the meeting.

Ford told the Washington Post in an interview published Sunday that Kavanaugh held her on a bed on her back during a party at a house in Maryland. Ford accused Kavanaugh of groping her over her clothes and said he tried to undress her. She was able to escape the bedroom when Kavanaugh’s classmate jumped on them, Ford said.

Kavanaugh unequivocally denied the allegation in a statement last week, though at that time, his accuser was anonymous. Ford told the Washington Post she did not tell anyone about the incident until 2012.

The allegation has roiled the Republican effort to get Kavanaugh confirmed by the end of the month. The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination Thursday, and the committee is now looking into setting up bipartisan calls with Kavanaugh and Ford so senators can receive more information on the matter, a senior Republican Senate staffer told the Washington Examiner.

Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, said Monday that Ford is willing to publicly testify about the incident.

Kavanaugh, too, said he would speak to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity,” he said in his statement.

In the wake of Ford’s decision to identify herself, some senators have called for the Senate Judiciary Committee to postpone its upcoming vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination, while others believe a public hearing is necessary.

“Let’s do this the right way, the thoughtful way,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told CNN on Monday. “It’s a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land. It’s a generation decision.”

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said the committee needs to hear from Ford before moving forward with a vote. Flake is one of 11 Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“If they push forward without any attempt with hearing what she’s had to say, I’m not comfortable voting yes,” Flake told Politico. “We need to hear from her. And I don’t think I’m alone in this.”

During an appearance on Fox News, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Ford “should not be ignored.”

“I’ve spoken with the president. I’ve spoken with Sen. [Lindsey] Graham and others,” Conway said. “This woman will be heard.”

Suspicious Timeline Emerges – When Kavanaugh’s Accuser Chose to Hire a Lawyer Calls MORE Into Question

Well, well, well, looks like we have further proof that Kavanaugh’s accuser, and Democrats, had this little 36-year-old stunt planned for a quite a while.

Turns out, anti-Trump Christine Blasey Ford hired her #Resistance feminist lawyer some time ago, we know for a fact, she had her back in July of 2018.

Heavy.com

According to The Washington Post, Ford acted on the advice of her lawyer, Debra Katz, and took a polygraph test administered by a former FBI agent in July. Though Ford had decided not to come forward, the story was soon leaked, with increasing details leading to her identity.

She told The Washington Post, “Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation.”

Democrats Disgusting Plot Against Kavanaugh BACKFIRES – Susan Collins is NOT Buying It

Susan Collins, a major “swing vote” in the Kavanaugh SCOTUS confirmation, isn’t buying the “timing” of the so-called Kavanaugh accuser’s 36-year-old claim that he raped, and nearly “killed” her.

Nobody is buying this. It’s the most obviously shameless political hit job we’ve ever witnessed.

The Hill

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a key swing vote in the Supreme Court fight, is knocking Senate Democrats for their handling of a sexual assault allegation against nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Collins questioned why Democrats had waited for weeks to come forward with the allegation, arguing it wasn’t “fair” to either Kavanaugh or Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s.
“What is puzzling to me is the Democrats, by not bringing this out earlier, after having had this information for more than six weeks, have managed to cast a cloud of doubt on both the professor and the judge,” Collins told The New York Times.
Collins asked if Democrats believed Ford, “why didn’t they surface this information earlier,” and if they didn’t believe Ford, “why did they decide at the 11th hour to release it?”

“It is really not fair to either of them the way it is was handled,” Collins said.

Collins comments come after Ford spoke publicly about the alleged incident for the first time during an interview with The Washington Post that was published on Sunday.

Ford told the Post that Kavanaugh “groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.”

Kavanaugh has denied the alleged incident, which Ford says took place when they were both in high school.
Collins has not announced a decision on Kavanaugh and where she ultimately comes down will help determine when, and if, he gets confirmed.
Democrats need to win over two GOP senators, and keep their own caucus united, if they want to sink Kavanaugh.
GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) told CNN on Sunday night that delaying a committee vote on Kavanaugh “might” need to be considered and GOP Sens. Bob Corker (Tenn.) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.) both indicated senators should hear from Ford.
Collins, according to The Times, said Ford should be interviewed, but she hasn’t yet weighed in on if a Judiciary Committee vote that is currently scheduled for Thursday needs to be put on pause.
“I’m going to be talking with my colleagues, but I really don’t have anything to add at this point,” Collins told CNN, as a reporter walked through Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport with her.
Asked if she believed Kavanaugh’s accuser, she added: “I don’t know enough to make a judgment at this point.”

 

REPORT: Court Records Reveal a Sinister Connection Between Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh’s Family

The evidence is stacking up against the woman accusing patriotic and honorable Judge Kavanaugh.

It’s obvious that this is nothing more than a political “hit job” from the Democrats – we’ve all seen this garbage before.

They trot out the crying “victim,” who, suddenly, at the eleventh hour, decides to come forward about a decades-old abuse that can never be proven. It just sits there, hanging over everyone like a dank, slime.

We know for a fact that Christine Blasey Ford is a rabid anti-Trump #Resist activist. Now, we’re also learning that her family has ties to Kavanaugh’s family, via a court case.

Kavanaugh’s Accuser is Discredited AGAIN – Classmate Comes Forward With Blistering Statment

The two people who Christine Blasey Ford name in her absurd “assault” allegation, are both well-respected, honorable men, and they both vehemently deny the liberal activists 36-year-old claim.

Ford claims that she was sexually assaulted and “nearly killed,” by Judge Kavanaugh, at a party back in high school, while his friend watched.

The friend, Mark Judge, a D.C. writer, has said repeatedly that this never happened, and is calling the accusation “nuts.”

Breitbart

Mark Judge, a writer in Washington, D.C., has reiterated his strong denial of allegations that he watched as Brett M. Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted a girl when he and Kavanaugh attended a party while they were in high school more than three decades ago.

The accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, claims that she was able to escape when Judge jumped on top of her and Kavanaugh and dislodged the two.  She went public with an on record account in a story published Sunday in the Washington Post.

Judge was Kavanaugh’s friend and classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School.  The Post story claims that Kavanaugh and Judge were both “stumbling drunk” when the two, as the Post characterized it, “corralled her into a bedroom during a gathering of teenagers at a house in Montgomery County.”

Now that Ford’s name and more details about her allegations were released in the Post story, Judge reiterated his denial:

“Now that the anonymous person has been identified and has spoken to the press, I repeat my earlier statement that I have no recollection of any of the events described in today’s Post article or attributed to her letter,” he said in a statement to Breitbart News.

Before Ford’s name was publicly released on Sunday, Judge strongly denied that the incident ever occurred. “It’s just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way,” Judge said to the Weekly Standard, addressing allegations that at the time stemmed from reports citing an unnamed woman.

Last week, the New York Times cited a “secretive letter shared with senators and federal investigators by the senior Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee” outlining the allegations from an unnamed woman. “I never saw anything like what was described,” Judge told the newspaper at the time.

In a statement shared by the White House, Kavanaugh last week said that “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation.

“I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” Kavanaugh added.

Hollywood is ALREADY Sharpening Their Pitchforks for Kavanaugh

Predictably, clueless Hollywood celebrities are jumping to the defense of the phony Kavanaugh accuser.

These stooges are shamelessly ignoring the fact that there’s no evidence, absurd “perfect timing,” everyone she named, as denied it, and her own story doesn’t “add up.”

See, it’s not about the “facts” with these shills. It’s about the ends justifying the means – and the “end game” here, is stopping Kavanaugh at all costs.

Breitbart

Following the release of a Washington Post report accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, many in Hollywood attacked him and assumed his guilt Sunday.

The accuser — a woman named Christine Blasey Ford — told the Post that Brett Kavanaugh, a 17-year-old high school student, groped and attacked her.

Ford said that Kavanaugh “groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.”

Kavanaugh denied the allegations. Another student who was allegedly present during this incident has denied the encounter happened as well, saying the story is “absolutely nuts.”
Nonetheless, many in Hollywood immediately presumed Kavanaugh’s guilt and slammed him on social media.

“Brett Kavanaugh attempted rape ,” Rosie O’Donnell tweeted.

Author Stephen King joined in.

“I believe Christine Blasey Ford and so should every U.S Senator,” Chelsea Handler tweeted.

“SenateGOP Male GOP Senators, huge opportunity here to pretend you give a shit about women & be the first to say you’ll vote No on Kavanaugh. BenSasse? BobCorker? JeffFlake? One of you soft pieces of shit should grab this once in a career opportunity,” comedian Rob Delaney tweeted.

Actress Debra Messing tweeted, “I believe and stand by Professor Ford. The confirmation MUST BE DELAYED so the FBI can investigate this extremely serious matter. “I thought he might inadvertently kill me.”-Professor Ford about –Kavanaugh assault. KavanaughConfirmation must STOP.”

Many others in Hollywood joined in on the hate train.
