Ford wants another day to consider testifying

WASHINGTON (AP) — The lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford wants another day to consider terms for testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teens.

Attorney Debra Katz calls Friday’s deadline for a response “arbitrary.” She says “its sole purpose is to bully” Ford.

Ford met with the FBI for several hours about death threats she has received and wants to consider her response until Saturday.

The committee and the attorney are in a showdown ahead of a scheduled Monday meeting.

Kavanaugh denies the allegations and has said he would testify to clear his name. Ford wants to appear later in the week.

Chairman Chuck Grassley says if no agreement is reached the panel may vote Monday on Kavanaugh’s nomination.

    Why is the federal government allowing a single individual to call the shots in a matter like this? Talk about the tail wagging the dog. They should have told her what to do and when to do it within reason, and if she stalled even once, held the vote. Period.

    This is yet another weak tactic from the Left, to circumvent the desire and will of the people.
    Blah, blah, blah…nothing any of them say is believable anymore.
    Facts are an inconvenient thing that get in the way of the leftist agenda, to unseat an elected president.
