Senator Chuck Grassley, he of the Anita Hill hearings fame, tells us he is doing everything he can to make Dr. Blasey “comfortable” so that she will come and testify before the Judiciary Committee about her accusation that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school.
Dr. Blasey isn’t requesting a continuation of the FBI background check of Kavanaugh in order to be comfortable. She’s asking for facts to be investigated and presented to the Judiciary Committee before they hear her testimony, so that their votes can be based on evidence and not on political pressure or bias.
Under the guise of extending every courtesy, Grassley is being insufferably patronizing.
The old white guys from the Anita Hill days have learned nothing at all.
