Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and other top Republicans on Wednesday urged Christine Blasey Ford in a letter to reconsider her apparent refusal to testify next week about her decades-old sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. In a separate, scathing letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats, Grassley sharply condemned what he called their persistent “abuse of this confirmation process” through “delay and obstruction … with every argument available.” Grassley reiterated that Monday’s hearing would remain on the calendar despite Democrats’ objections. “I will view any additional complaints about this process very skeptically,” Grassley wrote. Meanwhile, sources tell Fox News that the White House confirmation team conducted a so-called “murder board” with Kavanaugh Tuesday in preparation for Monday’s scheduled hearing. Sources say he did well in the session, and that “he was solid – there was no wavering.” On Tuesday night, Ford’s lawyers wrote to Grassley that “an FBI investigation of the incident should be the first step in addressing her allegations,” rather than a Senate hearing before politicians “who appear to have made up their minds.” The attorneys, Lisa Banks and Debra Katz, asserted that her family “was forced to relocate out of their home” and that “her email has been hacked, and she has been impersonated online.” They also criticized Grassley for proposing to put Ford at “the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. Senators on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident.” In response, Grassley flatly denied that he had ever suggested Ford sit near Kavanaugh, and insisted he has made every effort to accomodate the accuser in a variety of ways.

In his letter to Senate Democrats, Grassley noted that his staff was willing to “fly to California, or anywhere else, to meet” Ford and interview her privately or publicly. He also criticized Democrats for refusing to respond to offers by committee Republican staffers to set up meet
