Skip to comments.Chuck Grassley: Ford Can Testify In Closed Session, But FBI Role Is ‘Complete’

And the GOP response hasnt changed much either. What Grassley says here is the same thing the GOP said when Democrats demanded more documents, i.e. were not delaying this confirmation. As Grassley put it above, Fords opportunity to be heard is Monday. Theres no need for additional delay, not for the FBI and not because Ford is worried about TV cameras. She can tell her story in open session or closed session but she can tell it on Monday. And if she refuses to show up, the vote should proceed without further delay.
Update: Heres Grassleys letter to Fords attorneys in which he makes the same points he made in his tweets

She still won’t show up.
You expect Fartacus and The Ugandan Giant to be respectful and not fling poop? That’s funny.
OK Grassley, get the Turtle in gear and do the vote!!!
Enough is enough....
Grassley is giving up too much. He should have held the vote this week. No way should he allow closed hearings.
Which one is the Ugandan Giant? Kamala?
Why would she, the story is scandalously fabricated.
Why should she be given the protection of a closed-door hearing? Judge Kavanaugh has been belittled, bashed, condemned, and harassed in the public domain. She’s the one who has made the allegations, and should be made to appear in public to defend them. I’ve given up any hope of Republicans ever growing a set of balls, and a backbone.
The vote should be held tomorrow. Grassley is an ASSHAT. A true POS.
A closed hearing for a liar to lie about a SCOTUS nominee?
Unacceptable. We have a right to hear what they hear.
I am so PROUD of CHUCK GRASSLEY!
PLEASE, CHUCK, DON’T BLOW IT!!!!!!!!!
Grassley is a weak tit. He has no idea how to deal with democrats and always lapses back into the craven bowl of jello he is. This circus should be shut down but republicans don’t have the sand needed to make it happen. Just once it would be nice to see a Republican with a spine outside the White House.
We have a right to hear what they hear.
We are only allowed to hear what they want us to hear.
The senate calls itself the World’s Greatest Deliberative Body. What a complete farce that is.
Everyone (Democrats included) knows this is a political sh_t show. But for the Democrats, they are terrified of losing the court as their Super Legislature that can make up laws out of thin air. Abortion murderers can or fathom having to deal with the fact that they have been dismembering and murdering innocent children all along, and for decades.
can or = cannot
"We have no power to commandeer an Executive Branch agency into conducting our due diligence."
Grassley has his detractors here on FR, but I always enjoy reading a letter where a Republican senator with no legal background schools a leftist lawyer on Constitutional law.
Sounds clear and concise about Senate and executive roles. Ford is formally invited, now up to her to show up or not.
