The Democrats desperation is showing again. And with it, the honor of the Supreme Court hearing process is sliding into the muck.
Luckily, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is willing to put the “drain cycle” on FULL BLAST mode. (Video below.)
Grassley BACKLASHES at Senator Feinstein.
Senator Grassley completely blasted Senator Feinstein for her obvious shenanigans meant to delay the confirmation.
And in the process, besmirch this otherwise wonderful person and his family.
Senator Dianne Feinstein brought out a letter in the 11th hour from an unnamed source and described a high school scene that involved the Supreme Court nominee.
The accuser finally identified herself. Her name is Christine Blasey Ford.(Video below.)
Grassley follows the correct protocol and pushes the DRAIN CYCLE on Feinstein.
The Daily Caller reported that Bret said, “This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes—to her or to anyone,” Kavanaugh said. “Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.”
Both Christine Ford and nominee Kavanaugh will testify to Congress.
The Daily Caller cited that Senator Grassley explained, “the standard procedure for updates to any nominee’s background investigation file is to conduct separate follow-up calls with relevant parties.” (Video below.)
Then the Chairman said, “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,” as reported by the DC.
Grassley also blasted Feinstein and the Democrats for holding the information.
Senator Grassley said, “Unfortunately, committee Republicans have only known this person’s identity from news reports for less than 24 hours and known about her allegations for less than a week,” Mr. Grassley said. “Senator Feinstein, on the other hand, has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information necessary to do our jobs,” as reported by The New York Times.
President Trump weighed in. (Video below.)
The New York Times reported President Trump who said of Kavanaugh, “He is somebody very special; at the same time, we want to go through a process, we want to make sure everything is perfect. Everything is just right,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House. “If it takes a little delay, it will take a little delay — it shouldn’t certainly be very much.”

In closing, do you believe the Democrats are willing to take this time-honored Supreme Court Justice process and turn it into a circus?
