Skip to comments.Grassley Sets Friday Deadline For Kavanaugh Accuser….
Posted on 09/19/2018 8:55:48 PM PDT by Kevin in California
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has submitted a letter to ranking member Dianne Feinstein setting a deadline for Friday, September 21st, for Judge Kavanaughs accuser, Christine Ford, to respond on whether or not she will appear for testimony to support her claims.
Yes, at least momentarily.
I have no doubt he can misplace it again though.
Setting a deadline watch out Chuck, thats pretty aggressive behavior.
She’s probably getting an extreme makeover a la Stormy Daniels before she struts into the public kangaroo court.
Grassley is the man. Can we get him to unretire?
I would like to see an empty chair with her name on it before the committee like Clint Eastwood speaking to Obama.
Did he finally taste blood?
Looks like Mr. Grassley has located his spine.>>>>>>>>>
Yes, Chuck decided to stand by the standard of due process and
the Constitutional duty of confirmation process.
Why should the nation require that all presidential appointees for Senate confirmation be pu$$y whipped? Its ludicrous and unconstitutional.
Kudos to Chuck Grassley.
“Looks like Mr. Grassley has located his spine.”
Nope. If he had a spine, he would have announced that as she had refused to testify, they were voting in 30 minutes. Then take the vote.
There should be rules and regs, I want to carefully say this......
There should be rules that for jobs requiring Senate approval, hearings are held, etc.
There should be rules that no new information can be introduced after the hearings are over. There should be rules that we’re done with hearings, now it’s time to vote.
They shouldn’t be able to take advantage of the time between the conclusion of the hearings, and the committee vote or Senate vote, to drop bombs such as this.
This whole thing is horse blank in my opinion, however, if it were to be discussed at all, it should have been discussed at the hearings. We know Feinstein had this info. and decided to sit on it.
Speak now or forever hold your peace. You shouldn’t be able to detonate neutron bombs after the official evaluation process is complete but the vote has not yet occurred.
Ticky Tocky goes the clocky. What a forking mess. What would you do?
Reminds me of a story. Texas kid, five at the time, in the back seat leans over the front seat between his mother and aunt and says: What would youuuu doooo if my hooter went from here to Austin [they were in College Station at the time]?
So what would youuuu doooooo if Chrisssssy Ford said you tried to rape her 15 year-old body when you were 17 or if Chrissssy Ford got a message to your Spinate Judiciary Committee making this claim?
I’d say: Chrissssy come tell us all about it or Piss off! Time for another drink! Let’s vote now!
Grassley? Spine? The hell you say!
You shouldnt be able to detonate neutron bombs after the official evaluation process is complete but the vote has not yet occurred.>>>>
Of course not. The appointee, in this case KAVANAUGH, has the right for the hearings in which his personal qualifications are at issue, for the hearings to be conducted pursuant to the laws of due process guaranteed by the 5th and 14th amendments to the Constitution.
Among these rights is the right to face one’s accuser.
Note that Feinstein will not give an unredacted copy of Ford’s letter of complaint to Chuck Grassley. This alone is in violation of evidentiary due process. What the Dems of the Senate Judiciary Committee have attempted is a gross violation of Kavanaugh’s due process rights.
As has been pointed out repeatedly, we no longer have democrats, we have liberal fascists who hold the Constituton in contempt.
We should not yield. HOLD THE VOTE.
“Procedural due process
Procedural due process requires government officials to follow fair procedures before depriving a person of life, liberty, or property.:657 When the government seeks to deprive a person of one of those interests, procedural due process requires the government to afford the person, at minimum, notice, an opportunity to be heard, and a decision made by a neutral decision maker.
“This protection extends to all government proceedings that can result in an individual’s deprivation, whether civil or criminal in nature, from parole violation hearings to administrative hearings regarding government benefits and entitlements to full-blown criminal trials. The article “Some Kind of Hearing” written by Judge Henry Friendly created a list of basic due process rights “that remains highly influential, as to both content and relative priority”. These rights, which apply equally to civil due process and criminal due process, are:
An unbiased tribunal.
Notice of the proposed action and the grounds asserted for it.
Opportunity to present reasons why the proposed action should not be taken.
The right to present evidence, including the right to call witnesses.
The right to know opposing evidence.
The right to cross-examine adverse witnesses.
A decision based exclusively on the evidence presented.
Opportunity to be represented by counsel.
Requirement that the tribunal prepares a record of the evidence presented.
Requirement that the tribunal prepares written findings of fact and reasons for its decision.”
DiFi has wasted our effing time and money. She has made a mockery of this whole proceeding. She is an irresponsible hagosarus. Sure she had the info. She probably made it up or helped write it.
Tonight I’m so disgusted and wound up I’ve had more than a few which is something I never, correction NEVER ever do! Tonight I’d tell the pope he was catholic and what I thought about it. I just want to go to sleep and stop thinking.
The Donald should have the boys at Eighth and I march on the Spinate and Congressional office building and clamp the lot of them in irons. Let God sort out the righteous.
What you are trying to say, and failing, is that this whole thing is horeshit. Say it reallllll fast and it will pass the censures but it is all the same, just like all things are anymore in gubment and other things.... horeshit.
Did you know that coyotes are sneaky effing democrats? The sorry maggot bastards killed my favorite cat Mr. Pepper. Some animals just deserve a horrible, painful, lingering death! Ground glass and hamburger is too good for them. I’ll grind their scrawny hides up with a brush hog and leave them for the buzzards. That is my fondest hope.
More bourbon! Sleep still eludes me!
Things have changed beyond my ability to adapt. I can’t accept them anymore. I need to just withdraw and ignore the world or leave it. My Dad said the same thing and that he was ready to leave just any time from now. So am I.
Sic semper evello mortem tyrannis
Not quite yet falling down drunk but getting there. A place I have not been in years.
How are things in San Diego! It is hotter than blazes here in Oklahoma and dryer than a popcorn fart. If the sunspots are at a nadir why is it so damn hot?
Parody twitter account for the accuser
Neutron bombs! Greatest invention of all time! Leave the stuff and kill all the sheeple. What a great way to start over in DC.
Can you imagine the possibilities with such a wonderful blank slate with no people? Talk about a nearly clean canvas! All that tradition in place, the Constitution and a Bible as a guide and not a freaking politician insight. Just IMAGINE IT!
Trump got him on the phone and loaned him one.
