Senator Grassley has been trying his best to move along the Kavanaugh Hearing but Democrats are doing everything in their power to delay the process. But Grassley has had enough. He has given Ford every option he can to try and accommodate her but her she is unwilling to comply. It almost seems like she is in league with the Democrats. Grassley released a letter to address the demands for an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh.
“Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has made serious allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. She has said repeatedly that she wants to tell her story. And she has a right to be heard. Holding a hearing is in the best interests of justice and for the parties involved.
This will allow Dr. Ford to make her allegations under oath, as her attorney has publicly requested. At the same time, reopening the hearing will allow Judge Kavanaugh, who has categorically denied Dr. Ford’s allegations, to address these allegations without further delay.
I understand how difficult it might be for Dr. Ford to publicly testify on this subject. I have therefore offered her many options. We’ve offered her a public hearing, a private hearing, a public staff interview, or a private staff interview. The staff is even willing to fly to California, or anywhere else, to meet her.”

“I certainly can understand that Dr. Ford might be distrustful of the Committee’s ability to keep matters confidential based on the Democratic members’ recent conduct, but I sincerely hope that, if she chooses to testify in a closed session, that my colleagues can see their way to plugging the leaks which have plagued this nomination and gain their trust.”
“The FBI does not make a credibility assessment of any information it receives with respect to a nominee … We have no power to commandeer an Executive Branch agency into conducting our due diligence.” He added, “… your request ignores the fact that Dr. Ford has already made her allegations public. The purpose of the background investigation process is to compile information in a confidential manner.”
“This is but the latest and most serious of your side’s abuse of this confirmation process. There has been delay and obstruction of this process at every turn and with every argument available.”
