Posted on 09/24/2018 3:44:13 AM PDT by Lazamataz
Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, late Sunday slammed Senate Democrats for withholding information from the committee regarding new sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The Iowa Republican said the committee will attempt to evaluate the new claims, but said in a statement it appears that they [Democrats] are more interested in a political takedown" than pursing allegations through a bipartisan and professional investigative process.
His office released the statement after two new allegations emerged against Kavanaugh.
Deborah Ramirez, 53, a former Yale classmate, said he exposed himself and thrusted his penis in her face during a drunken dormitory party, according to an article in The New Yorker.
Ramirez claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while she was intoxicated during a drinking game in the 1983-84 academic year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman. She also claimed she inadvertently touched Kavanaugh's penis when she pushed him away and says the incident left her "embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated."

In the meantime, I'd like to provide this helpful form to the Democrats:

Thanks, missed that thread.
So what did Judge Kavanaugh do with Jimmy Hoffa?
The Stupid Party *is* complicit!
Grassley is to blame!
And Brett was only getting started at ten years of age! <-—Re. Hoffa
This smear campaign of bald-faced lies is what the Left means when they say, “By any means necessary.”
Just utter sewer crapola. To circumvent any future crap there should be a limited time frame for any viable complaints made about a candidate. When the deadline passes thats it. No more of this last second shenanigans to delay the process. Grassley may have been a farmer but he sucks at using a hammer.
Hate to say it, but I think its over. This will be delayed past the midterms. And the Dems will send in woman after woman, one liar at a time.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, for all intent purpose, is an accomplice at this point. He had to have known that by holding off on the vote other liars would be coming forward. I’ve held off writing anything because I wasn’t able to write anything that would not have gotten me zotted. Sigh. So very angry. I am thankful Judge K appears to be a true fighter. Please, Lord, keep the man and his family safe during this horrendous episode.
Clarence Thomas didnt fold and neither should Kavanaugh. He wont be swinging leftwards like Kennedy either after this sewage shower from rotten Rats.
Kavanaugh is done and Trump will not get another pick confirmed unless he nominates a democrat, all thanks to spineless republicans.
Have some faith no not in feckless Senators of low caliber but in Almighty God. Like the forefathers we call on Him.
The gang rape charges are so completely over the top, so far outside the bounds of rationality, that the Republicans would be safe in going ahead today and start the confirmation voting.
But they won’t.
Kavanaugh deserved better. This will forever be a sh*tstain on the history of this country.
On the other hand, maybe the safest thing to do would be to vote right after the Midterm elections.
> “This will forever be a sh*tstain on the history of this country.”
Unless the perpetrators can be defeated.
It’s not over, it’s barely begun.
Grassley is an idiot. For him to give any credence to any of this is shameful. There’s no fool, like an old fool.
