Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team has written a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley, expressing concerns about her upcoming hearing.
Ford, a Professor living in California, has accused President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of attempting to sexually assault her decades ago while in high school.
Liberals have pounced on the allegation to try and sink Kavanaugh’s confirmation, while others question why she waited nearly 40 years to come forward.
According to Mediaite:
“In the letter addressed to Sen. Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Ford’s legal team cites Sen. Majority Leader’s Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) speech on the Senate floor on Monday afternoon as “flatly inconsistent” with Grassley’s promise of a “fair and credible process.”
“In our view, the hiring of an unnamed ‘experienced sex crimes prosecutor’ as Mr. Davis described in his email, is contrary to the Majority’s repeated emphasis on the need for the Senate and this Committee’s members to fulfill their constitutional obligations,” attorney Michael Bromwich wrote.
“It is also inconsistent with your stated wish to avoid a ‘circus,’ as well as Dr. Blasey Ford’s repeated requests through counsel that senators conduct the questioning. This is not a criminal trial for which the involvement of an experienced sex crimes prosecutor would be appropriate.”
Ford’s team requested the identity of the sex crimes prosecutors the Committee would invite to the hearing along with their resumes.
The letter also blasts the the White House’s refusal to order an FBI investigation into Ford’s allegation.”
