Democrats Livid After Senator Grassley Closes Door to Further FBI Investigation of Kavanaugh

An “accuser” who cannot remember key facts about her alleged attack and refuses to testify when invited by the Senate. Doesn’t sound very credible, does she?

Still, on Tuesday, Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys Debra Katz and Lisa Banks sent a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley asking that an FBI investigation of the alleged incident take place before her client would be willing to testify. In a letter to Grassley, Iowa Republican, and panel chairman, Christine Blasey Ford said that she received death threats and added that only an FBI probe can “ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner.”

On Wednesday afternoon, Senator Grassley replied to each one of those points, starting with the threats she claims to have received:

Grassley wrote: “Dr. Ford shouldn’t be threatened or insulted & she deserves to be heard. I expect my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to be respectful & treat this situation with the sensitivity it deserves 1/4”

Ford’s attorneys also complained about the public hearing scheduled for this coming Monday in the letter:


“While Dr. Ford’s life was being turned upside down, you and your staff scheduled a public hearing for her to testify at the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. Senators on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident.”

Grassley responds to this next by offering their client the opportunity to testify behind closed doors if she wishes:



Also, in a letter to Ford’s attorney Grassley said that an FBI investigation is unnecessary and that the Senate doesn’t even have the power to authorize the investigation.

“It is not the FBI’s role to investigate a matter such as this,” Grassley wrote, “The FBI does not make a credibility assessment of any information it receives with respect to a nominee.”

“You have stated repeatedly that Dr. Ford wants to tell her story. I sincerely hope that Dr. Ford will accept my invitation to do so, either privately or publicly, on Monday. In the meantime, my staff would still welcome the opportunity to speak with Dr. Ford at a time and place convenient to her,” said Grassley.

“The Constitution assigns the Senate, and only the Senate, with the task of advising the President on his nominee and consenting to the nomination if the circumstances merit. The job of assessing and investigating a nominee’s qualifications in order to decide whether to consent to the nomination is ours, and ours alone”

When you’ve been offered the opportunity to tell your story & you turn it down the authorities can’t do anything. Especially if you offer no collaborating evidence.

Luckily Sen. Chuck Grassley is not taking any nonsense from Ford or her attorney. Well done! His letter is concise, clear and to the point. He is absolutely right, Democrats are behind this to stall the vote.

He should read it at a press conference so the low information voters have a chance at understanding how nominees are vetted and confirmed.

Senator Dianne Feinstein should have done this the correct way and we will not be here where we are today!! It’s on her!!
