BREAKING: Grassley Gives Accuser 10 PM Deadline – Vote Monday if No Response

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

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

Christine Ford was originally supposed to give her prepared testimony and biography to the Senate Judiciary committee by Friday 10 AM ET–they have extended the offer to 10 PM ET.

Senator Grassley said he is providing a notice to vote to occur Monday if Christine Ford does not respond by 10 PM ET tonight or if Ford decides not to testify.

PERGRAM: Grassley: I’m extending the deadline for response yet again to 10 o’clock this evening. I’m providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford’s attorneys don’t respond or Dr. Ford decides not to testify.

PERGRAM: Grassley: In the event that we can come to a reasonable resolution as I’ve been seeking all week, then I will postpone the committee vote to accommodate her testimony. We cannot continue to delay.

Full statement from Grassley:

Christine Ford has accused–without corroborating evidence–Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a drunken high school pool party decades ago.


There’s only one reason why Ford and Democrats are demanding a Thursday hearing…

Breitbart Editor Joel Pollak said, “The only possible reason for Dr. Ford to demand a Thursday hearing (as opposed to Wednesday/Tuesday or the scheduled Monday) is to prevent the Senate from voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh before month’s end, leaving him off the bench when the Supreme Court’s next session starts.”
