BREAKING: Christine Blasey Ford’s Lawyers Seek Extension of Grassley’s 10 PM Deadline

Senate Republicans made a counteroffer to Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford early Friday afternoon.

Ford’s lawyers had until 10 PM Friday to work out the terms for next week’s hearing, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said Friday evening.

The accuser responded through her lawyers shortly before the 10 PM deadline Friday evening.

Ford’s attorney’s are seeking another delay–SHOCKER!

There is no time for delay. Kavanaugh must be confirmed as soon as possible or his confirmation is over.

Via Politico:

Attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford on Friday night decried an “arbitrary” deadline set by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) for her to respond to negotiations to testify about her sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh, seeking an additional day to reply.

“Its sole purpose is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family,” Katz wrote in an email obtained by POLITICO.

More from FOX News Congress reporter Chad Pergram:

Ford’s lawyers accuse GOP of pressuring her to testify.

Christine Ford’s attorney’s also accused Grassley of bullying her with the 10 PM deadline.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has not responded to Ford’s attorneys at the time of this publication. The Gateway Pundit will update with a response as soon as one is available.
