Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Tuesday raised the possibility that next weeks high-stakes open hearing to examine the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh could be canceled if the accuser doesnt accept the committees invitation.
Grassley, R-Iowa, scheduled a hearing for Monday for Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford to answer questions from senators about the allegation. But Grassley said during a Tuesday radio interview that his office has reached out several times to Ford and her attorneys to discuss her allegation, but has heard nothing back.

Grassley should announce if by Wednesday the invitation to testify is not answered, the vote will be on Thursday.
Because she needs more time to be “coached up” on her lies.
Dems don’t care; either way whether she accepted or refused they’d call for a delay.
She has been ordered by democrat central to delay, delay, until around Nov 5 or 6.
Then she’ll get the reward they promised her.
Uh, well. YEAH
She no-shows, it’s O V E R
Her bluff was called and she’s a PROVEN LIAR
END of STORY
Disgusting, childish theater by SpyStein and Schumer . . .
Because they are playing games. They want an FBI investigation to delay everything. The woman and her handlers are not honest and this is ridiculous. He should be confirmed whether she testifies or not and with Feinstein and this woman playing around with the process, they absolutely should confirm him and stop this side show. An accusation doesn’t mean a person should be rejected.
UNDER OAT has scared her off with her LIES.
If these charges against Kavanaugh are so damning as to derail his SCOTUS nomination, then he should be immediately removed from the DC Court of Appeals too, right?
If Kavanaugh is a rapist that makes him unfit for the Supreme Court, shouldn't he be unfit for the court he sits on now?
We should demand that everyone who is questioning Kavanaugh's confirmation publicly state their support for removing Kavanaugh from the DC Circuit Court. If they refuse to do so, they are admitting that the charge against Kavanaugh is not credible.
How can we have one character standard for the Supreme Court, and allow lesser character for the lower courts? It's okay to attempt rape if you're a lower court judge, but that disqualifies you from the Supreme Court?
Who is going to go on record to take the destruction of Kavanaugh to the next step based on this one questionable accusation? Their silence on that question should tell everyone all we need to know about what they think.
They’re up to something with this strategy...I just hope the Republicans are READY for it.
What kind of perception in the public mind is a tattooed, rabid libtard going to create? It aint gonna be pretty when her bipolar kicks in. There are also bound to be questions about her familys foreclosure that just may kick her full display into gear.
I would agree, but there needs to be a firm commitment from the spineless wonders Flake & Graham that they would vote yay in such a case. McConnel would also need to ensure that the rest of the amoebas tow the line ...
Grassley should issue an ultimatum that if she does not accept by 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, the whole thing is canceled and the Thursday vote is back on.
Don’t tell Feinstein what you will do, just do it.
Cancel and vote!
Why would the FBI investigate a “crime” that has no evidence and the accuser admits she told nobody before 2012 and the accused - two of them - deny it happened?
And it’s past the statute of limitations.
And he’s already been through six FBI deep investigations.
What’s to investigate?
That is exactly right, she wants to do her civic duty, lets get it on. Again, the Democrats are holding the American people hostage until they can get their suicide bomber ready to put on the vest and push the button. And the republicans will wait until it is convenient for the bomber.
Shows their rudeness and arrogance more than anything else......wont even be courteous to a US Senator.
Hold DyFy responsible by removing her from the committee for fowl play.
“She has been ordered by democrat central to delay, delay, until around Nov 5 or 6.”
Yep. The Democrats are thumbing their collective noses at all of us who voted for a Trump presidency. They have zero respect for the opinions of those who don’t agree with them.
