Senate Judiciary Chair Grassley Blasts Democrats For Hiding Ford’s Letter From Committee Republicans (VIDEO)
Accuser Christine Ford delivered her opening statement to Senators Thursday morning recalling her ‘traumatic’ experience being sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge.
Ford gave her opening remarks in a very child-like, shaky voice–she even giggled and asked for coffee at the end of her testimony.
As the first segment of the hearing concluded, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley lost his cool and went off on Democrat Illinois Senator Dick Durbin.
“Between July 30th and September 13th there were 45 days this Committee could have been investigating this situation and her privacy would have been protected,” Grassley said. “So something happened here in between on your side that the whole country..we should have investigated it.”
Ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein sat on Christine Ford’s letter for several weeks–only to have it leaked to the media.
The Democrats created an 11th hour “me too” ambush to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
