Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), maybe more than any other member of Congress, has vehemently voiced his displeasure for the way Democrats have handled the allegations surrounding Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
During a Sunday interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business, Graham says he plans to investigate Democrat antics and improper behavior.
He’s done fooling around.
It’s time for some people to pay the piper.
Sen. Lindsey Graham: Here’s what’s going to happen. I’m going to ask Senator Grassley to get to the bottom of how this hearing process was so hijacked, the unethical aspects of it. The slash and burn aspects of it, the effort to delay it, to abuse, I think, Dr. Ford’s trust. So, let me tell you. We’re going to start with the following concept. Dr. Ford said at the hearing that she did not know that the committee was willing to come to California to take her testimony in a private setting… So I’m going to find out why she did not know her options. I’m going to find out who in Feinstein’s staff recommended Katz to be Dr. Ford’s lawyer. It’s improper for senators to recommend lawyers to constituents. I’m going to ask if she thought she needed a lawyer as a staff member why didn’t you come forth to tell the committee about the allegation.
Christine Blasey Ford apparently didn’t know that she could have testified at home and never even had to make the trip to DC.
Graham makes it clear that her lawyers should’ve told her about this.
Sen. Lindsey Graham: I about fell out of my chair when Dr. Ford said yesterday, “I didn’t know you would be willing to come to me.” The email interactions between this committee and her lawyers. “My staff would still welcome the opportunity to speak to Dr. Ford any time, anyplace, convenient to her. Come to us or we to you. I’m willing to have my staff travel to Dr. Ford in California or any where else to obtain her testimony. September the 19th.” Well, that wouldn’t fit in the plan. It wouldn’t be public and it would get over sooner than people wanted. I don’t know what to believe but I tend to believe that Dr. Ford did not know about this invitation. And, I’ve been a lawyer most of my adult life and somebody needs to ask the question to her lawyers how could she not know about this?
Katz was recommended to Ford by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
From Free Beacon:
Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, revealed Thursday that she hired her attorney at the recommendation of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.).
Ford made the disclosure at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, during which she testified about her allegation against Kavanaugh.
Rachel Mitchell, a prosecutor in the Maricopa County, Arizona Attorney’s Office who the committee selected to assist Republican lawmakers in questioning Ford, asked Ford in what she described as a “clean-up question” about her attorneys representing her through the process.
“Which of your two lawyers did Senator Feinstein’s office recommend,” Mitchell asked.
