Sen. Chuck Grassley released a timeline of the investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and, unsurprising to most conservatives, it showed how Democrats were up to their old tricks.
The timeline not only detailed how the FBI was unable to find a single witness to the alleged crime, it also showed how Democrats were less than forthright throughout the entire process. Some people might even say they lied.
The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee released the document to committee members Friday after the FBI concluded its investigation in which it found no evidence to support Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s claims of sexual abuse by Kavanaugh some 30 years ago.
According to the document, Ford wrote the letter to Sen. Diane Feinstein on July 30. While many Republicans would have thought that this was the time to alert others about the allegations, Feinstein did nothing with it.
On Aug. 30, Kavanaugh met with Feinstein, along with 65 other senators, regarding his nomination. At this time, she was aware of Ford’s allegations and the fact that Ford had retained Debra Katz as counsel, but she did not mention either of these things to Kavanaugh during the meeting.
On Sept. 12, almost six weeks after Feinstein first obtained Ford’s letter, she gave it to the FBI.
The question many right-thinking people might be asking is why Feinstein waited so long to tell anyone about the letter?
Regardless of why Feinstein held the letter for so long, it was only on Sept. 16 that Grassley learned of Ford’s identity. But it wasn’t from Feinstein — it was from a story that ran in the Washington Post.
On Sept. 17, Grassley invited Feinstein’s staff to join an interview with Kavanaugh, Ford and other witnesses. Feinstein declined to have her staff participate in any follow-up calls with the committee.
Sept. 18, was the first time Grassley heard from Ford’s lawyer, and that was when she asked for a delay in the hearing. Katz also appeared on cable news shows that evening speaking about a delay. While Katz had no problem broadcasting this information on talk shows, Ford’s legal team did not respond to emails and phone calls from committee staff.
It was around this time that the committee said it was willing to work out details about an interview with Ford. They were open to a private or public interview. They were even willing to fly to California to conduct an interview with Ford.
Despite the committee’s effort to bend over backward to accommodate Ford, her legal team did not respond to any requests.
On Sept. 20, Feinstein’s staff finally gave an unredacted copy of Ford’s letter to Grassley’s staff.
When Ford’s legal team finally did reach out to Grassley, it was to ask for extensions on the date in which Ford was expected to testify. Grassley extended the deadline three times.
With time and options running out, Ford accepted an invitation to appear before the committee on Sept. 22.
It was then attorney Michael Avenatti claimed he was representing a client with allegations against the judge. Avenatti did not wish to reveal his client’s name, but the New Yorker had no problem doing it. In a report published on Sept. 23, it identified Deborah Ramirez’ claim that Kavanaugh allegedly exposed himself to her at a college party.
Four days later, Avenatti claimed he had another client, Julie Swetnick, who claimed Kavanaugh and his friends drugged and gang raped girls at parties in the 80s.
It is also worth noting that while Democrats were eager to plaster Kavanaugh’s accusers all over the news and the internet, they were less reluctant to speak with witnesses who could not remember any parties, and Grassley blasted the fact they certainly had no interest in talking to those who could vouch for Kavanaugh’s character or who were supporting him.
According to thinking people, the timeline exposes the despicable, dishonest tactics democrats will take to spin their ‘Wrap up smears.’
