Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the Senate Judiciary Committee’s ranking Democrat, is demanding Sunday that Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) agree to another delay in the additional hearing on Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh set for Thursday.
The hearing was finally set Saturday when Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team agreed tentatively to appear after continual delays and breakdowns in negotiation over requests such as wanting Kavanaugh to defend himself before the accuser testifies.
Then, Sunday, Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer of the New Yorker broke a new accusation by Deborah Ramirez, a woman claiming an 18-year-old Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a drunken party as a Yale University freshman.
In response, Feinstein quickly penned a letter to Grassley with additional demands for delays and investigations.
Today, Deborah Ramirez came forward with serious allegations of sexual misconduct by Judge Kavanaugh.
Thursday's hearing should be canceled in light of a disturbing new allegation of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh. The FBI must investigate ALL allegations.
