Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has asked Christine Blasey Ford‘s legal team to turn over all communications they had with Democrat Sens. Diane Feinstein and Mazie Hirono, “in light of recently uncovered information.”
In a letter to Ford’s legal team, Grassley implied that the Committee may have information or evidence that Feinstein and Hirono took actions that could have violated Senate rules or were illegal. Grassley requested Ford’s team hand over her polygraph information and therapist notes too, which she claims corroborate her allegations.
The D.C. swamp is trembling as Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is one more vote away from being confirmed, and the response from Ford’s team says it all. Apparently, they are refusing to comply with the demand.
In fact, many people wonder what they’re trying to hide.
It’s unclear what Grassley is referring to, but it appears he knows something, and it could expose two top Democrats for taking egregious actions to help Ford advance her shoddy allegations.
Here’s part of Grassley’s fiery letter:
“I urge you once again, now for the third time in writing, to turn over the therapy notes, polygraph materials, and communications with The Washington Post that Dr. Ford has relied upon as evidence.”
“In addition to the evidence I requested in my October 2 letter, in light of recently uncovered information, please turn over records and descriptions of direct or indirect communications between Dr. Ford or her representatives and any of the following: (1) U.S. Senators or their staffs, particularly the offices of Senators Feinstein and Hirono, other than your communications with me and my staff in preparation for the September 27 hearing; (2) the alleged witnesses identified by Dr. Ford (Leland Keyser, Mark Judge, and Patrick “P.J.” Smyth); and (3) Debbie Ramirez, Julie Swetnick, or their representatives.”
Grassley didn’t elaborate further on what the “recently uncovered information” might be, but recent comments made by Feinstein and Hirono may offer some insight.
Last week, Hirono was asked point-blank several times about who leaked the letter Ford sent to Feinstein two months ago. She was pressed several times about whether Democrats strategically leaked Ford’s accusations against Kavanaugh days before a crucial Committee vote, but she wouldn’t answer.
Some argue she was silent because the leak is very serious, and could end in charges.
Roughly two months ago, Feinstein received a letter from Ford alleging Kavanaugh groped her at a high school party around 1982. There are no witnesses corroborate the tale and Kavanaugh has vehemently denied any wrongdoing, attending the supposed party, or ever even knowing Ford.
Feinstein didn’t tell anyone about the letter until a week before the confirmation hearing, and then it was mysteriously leaked, which kicked off a flurry of events to stall the confirmation. Ford and Kavanaugh testified last week, and four other people came forward with baseless accusations against Kavanaugh.
Despite all of this, Hirono won’t say if Democrats leaked the letter.
It would appear that Grassley may have evidence that Hirono and Feinstein, perhaps together, leaked Ford’s letter just days before the Committee vote on Kavanaugh.
This kicked off a FBI investigation and more stall tactics from Democrats.
Ford’s team is still trying to delay the vote, and Grassley just gave them final notice to turn over their communications with the top Democrats, if they want to keep hearing from him.
