Breaking: GRASSLEY CAVES, Grants Extension to Blasey Ford, Says He Feels Like Schumer Is Running Senate

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) announced late Friday night via Twitter that he has caved on his 10 p.m. EDT deadline for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to decide on testifying before the committee about her uncorroborated charges accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting decades ago at a drunken high school pool party.



Grassley’s three part statement:

Five times now we hv granted extension for Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed w her desire stated one wk ago that she wants to tell senate her story Dr Ford if u changed ur mind say so so we can move on I want to hear ur testimony. Come to us or we to u

Judge Kavanaugh I just granted another extension to Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed w the statement she made last week to testify to the senate She shld decide so we can move on I want to hear her. I hope u understand. It’s not my normal approach to b indecisive

With all the extensions we give Dr Ford to decide if she still wants to testify to the Senate I feel like I’m playing 2nd trombone in the judiciary orchestra and Schumer is the conductor”

Earlier Friday night, about a half hour before Grassley’s deadline, Ford’s attorney Debra Katz wrote a letter asking for more time for Ford to decide.

And yes, Chairman Grassley, Chuck Schumer is running rings around the GOP Senate majority right now. Good job.
