Chuck Grassley has had enough. He gave the left an inch and then another woman came forward and now Avenatti says he has someone with claims…
All this was easily predictable but Chuck did the right thing and he will hear from the accuser or accusers Thursday and then it is time to move on and put the dirty smear job in the dustbin of history.
The Democrats erupted at the news with Kamala Harris calling it a shan.
From The Hill: The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a Friday morning vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, according to a committee notice.
The vote on Kavanaugh — which GOP staff acknowledges could be pushed past Friday — is slated to come just one day after he is scheduled to testify in front of the panel on allegations of sexual misconduct.
One of the two women who has come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of misconduct, Christine Blasey Ford, is also scheduled to testify on Thursday.
“As a procedural matter, the Judiciary Committee today noticed a potential executive business meeting for Friday, September 28 at 9:30 a.m,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley‘s (R-Iowa) office said in the notice.
“Committee rules normally require executive business meetings to be noticed three days in advance, so an executive business meeting is being noticed tonight in the event that a majority of the members are prepared to hold one on Friday,” they added.
The Judiciary Committee has scheduled, and had to postpone, Kavanaugh’s nomination several times.
It was initially set for last week but delayed after Ford went public with her sexual assault allegation.
It was then scheduled for Monday but postponed again after committee staff and lawyers for Ford got a deal on a public hearing, which will take place on Thursday.
Ford alleges that at a high school party in the 1980s Kavanaugh pinned her down on a bed and tried to remove her clothing.
A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, told The New Yorker in an interview published Sunday that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when they were both students at Yale University.
Kavanaugh has denied both allegations and said he wants to testify before the Judiciary Committee to “clear my name.”
Republicans just announced a committee vote on Kavanaugh at 9:30 AM on Friday – less than 20 hours after Thursday’s hearing ends. This means little to no chance for the American people to contact them and weigh in. This is a sham.
