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

BizPac Review, by Samantha Chang

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/21/2018 5:08:13 AM

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.

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.

Feinstein has become a poodle of the Left.

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 Defense Department said U.S. law allows the Pentagon to use its budget for border security purposes.

Herding cats may turn out to be child’s play compared with the task of corralling what could be some two dozen Democratic candidates vying for a place on the debate stage as the party tries to pick its opponent to President Trump in 2020. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez is expected to reveal his plans before Christmas for how many debates the DNC will sanction and how it will decide who makes the cut. The decisions are likely to be tricky. A debate with more than a dozen candidates could seem ridiculous, but the spectacle of shunting high-profile minority

The GOP-controlled Senate on Wednesday dealt a significant blow to President Trump by voting to advance a resolution ending U.S. support for the Saudi war in Yemen in the aftermath of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi’s slaying. Senators agreed to begin debate on the measure despite only 11 of the chamber’s 51 Republicans joining with all Democrats to support it. The legislation would require Trump to withdraw any troops in or “affecting” Yemen within 30 days; the president has threatened to veto the bill if it reaches his desk. Senators were still haggling over amendments on Wednesday evening, but a

Woke songwriters were displeased with the apparently offensive lyrics of Frank Loesser´s Christmas classic "Baby it´s Cold Outside," so they offered up a rewriting of the song that is free from offense and predictably full-cringe. In the politically correct version of the classic, a woman is not being wooed to stay over; instead, a man is basically indifferent to having her company at all. The song was first rewritten in 2016, though it recently resurfaced due to the controversy it yet again sparked with the Social Justice Left. According to Minnesota radio station The Current, songwriters Lydia Liza and Josiah

New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Weiner told CBS This Morning hosts that holiday office parties are nothing more than another opportunity for women to be sexually harassed.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has the core of her 2020 team in place if she runs for president. She has the seed money — there’s $12.5 million ready to go, left from her recent Senate run — and a massive email list she’s amassed over years, boosted by a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in the last election alone. Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move. All that’s left is for her to give the green light.

But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” Mika Brzezinski said of Pompeo’s response to a question about the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi.
