‘What are Dems hiding?’ Grassley turns
up the heat with an eye-opening
demand for Feinstein

BizPac Review, by Samantha Chang

Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, fired off a scorching letter to ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein demanding that she turn over the unredacted letter from Christine Blasey Ford, the liberal professor who’s accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. “My staff has made repeated requests for this document — which has become a significant piece of evidence in Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation process — but your staff has so far refused to provide a copy of the letter,” Grassley wrote (see below). “I must review the unredacted letter that Dr. Ford sent to you, dated July

They are hiding the fact that Christine Blasey Ford (Chrissy) attended a thoroughly racist High School for affluent snobs. Other than that, not much.

Why is he sending the cow a letter? Doesn’t it graze next to him on the committee? Convene the committee, bring in the press and ask her boviness to hand over the letter.

No one has seen the letter? Why would the congresswoman accept and circulate the story without seeing the unredacted letter? And when Feinstein forwarded it to the FBI, it was still redacted? No wonder the FBI simply sent it on to the White House, probably with a cynical smile.

Grassley should tell Feinstein no letter....no hearing.

Then Kavanaugh should file a massive defamation suit against the bimbo who started all this crap and see what happens next. The accusations against Kavanaugh are unprovable so he should have an open and shut case against her.

Is the letter in Feinstein´s possession?if so, don’t give anyone an opportunity to change the content of it. If it’s not, anyone can mess with it.

Among other preposterous demands, Chrissie demands Brett Kavanaugh denied be access to the room when she makes her slanderous accusations against him.

Chrissie’s leftist butch lawyer doesn’t seem to know much about our legal system and has no memory of her own hypocritical history.

How many times have you said to yourself. I can’t believe the democrats would stoop to this level, and yet, they do. Any reasonable person with the ability to think logically understands this accusation was politically timed and motivated. To watch the unhinged women in the democrat party come out clothed in self-righteous outrage and make ridiculous demands and statements is proof they are politicizing every aspect of this fiasco. Grassley has done a fine job and should stick to his guns. The accuser should have the courage to come and tell her story. After all, she is the one who opened this can of worms. You cannot dump something like this in the public square and then just walk away. She has done serious damage to this fine man and his family and now the onus is on her to do the right and honorable thing by seeing it through. No one has the right to destroy someone’s reputation for political gain.

Stop the Madness NOW! Hold that Hearing on MONDAY as planned. Make it clear it will be the ONLY hearing for Ms. Ford to speak and make her accusations in front of Judge Kavanaugh. He has every right to confront this woman. Then set the VOTE for Tuesday. We all know the Dems are trying to prevent him from being seated on the Court October 1st. Make it happen Chairman Grassley! Republicans want it and Judge Kavanaugh deserves it!

Enough with comity! Sen. Feinstein put the committee in this position. Senate Republicans should be scorching her non-stop for holding on to the letter and releasing it at the last minute. It is Feinstein who did not believe Ford enough to pass along the letter in a timely fashion, it is Feinstein who has put Ford in this position, and it is Feinstein who has shown thoroughgoing contempt for her colleagues in the Senate-- not to mention basic American principles of fair-play and justice.

If Kavanaugh is not confirmed, the president should not nominate anyone, allowing the court to go to 8 members, split 4-4.
Then when Ruthie goes away, don´t replace her, making it a 4-3 court. (There is a chance that the wise latina could go quickly, because of her juvenile diabetes and morbid obesity.)

The constitution does not specify numbers of justices on the supreme court.
It would save time and money to have 7 members. And 5 would be even better.

Feinstein is a toilet log and has always been one. She is an opportunistic troll who rode the murder of Harvey Milk to national prominence. Now, she is another fossilized senator, corrupt, controlling, and evil. Evil is not too strong of a word to use to describe someone who would use the recollections of someone with absolutely no evidence whatsoever. She is The Swamp. She reflects the general attitude of a supermajority of Californians since they continue to vote every six years to send her disgusting self to Washington.

Well as a poster above said, this accuser backed by the liberal and socialist Democrats can make any demand they wish as the Senate Committee is not a court but is a political body. The success of those current demands along with whatever additional demands, that the accuser and the Democrats certainly will decide to make will depend upon how frightened they believe the wimpy Republicans really are. If they think that those wimpy Republicans will cave, as they have done so often in the past, the sky will be the limit for such demands. This is not about the nominee’s qualifications, it is all about politics, and clearly the Democrats still can’t get over losing the election and thus not being able to stack the Supreme Court with activist liberal Democrat lawyers.

Here is an irony/hypocrisy that has escaped publuc mention so I´ll mention it. Kavanaugh has been opposed by the Dems on the basis of Roe v Wade, a case based on the right to privacy. Who trampled on Blasey Ford´s right to privacy? The female Rat senator did just that. No one in the media mentions this. Its as obvious as it can be.

Feinstein has become a poodle of the Left.

SHE has had the letter since July, concealed it from the Committee, and suddenly releases the letter (redacted) with the purpose of throwing a wrench into the work of the Committee. To the great HARM of our Justice system PRESUMPTION of INNOCENCE, facing your accuser, getting all, ALL, the evidence; the Prosecution must prove it´s case beyond a resonable doubt.

The cost of living, the filth, the notorious New York attitude, the nanny-state tax-and-spend politics, and the decrepit subway all played a part. There was also its war on the Second Amendment — despite a Colorado concealed carry permit, a New York City long gun permit, and that, as an armorer, he equipped filmmakers with firearms, Luke was denied a pistol premise permit.

Four years ago, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society decided to do a study of MS prevalence in the U.S. The number of people with the disease that the society had been citing – 400,000 – seemed way too low to people in the MS community.

(Tweet) Her statement came shortly after Amazon in a blog post announced that it was canceling its plan to build offices, dubbed "HQ2," in Queens, citing pushback from "a number of state and local politicians."

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

I first wrote this article for American Thinker the first day after Jussie Smollett’s alleged attack where I expressed some of my own skepticism about the event. (snip) Perhaps life imitates art and could give insight into Smollett’s ulterior motives. His own music video that he performed in and directed in March of 2017 called “F.U.W.”, has the imagery of a black man standing under a noose. Right after appears a man in a Donald Trump mask standing behind the T.V. actor. The song and accompanying music video are essentially just liberal porn

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

Move over, Speaker Pelosi, and make room for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio as Democrats waking up to the disaster the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is inflicting on the Democratic Party. She is no longer just a potential threat to their schemes and operating principles, she has taken a wrecking ball to them. Trust me: they desperately want to be rid of her but, due to her media presence and popularity with the young and ignorant, cannot visibly stick the shiv in her back.
