How hard is it to get on a plane, fly to your destination, sit in a chair and tell your “story?”
Apparently, it’s REALLY, REALLY hard, because Kavanaugh’s highly controversial accuser, can’t seem to do just that. There has been round after round of delays and conditions and negotiating.
Why? What for?
You asked to be heard, we’re giving you that chance.
Get a plane ticket and show up and speak.
We have to go through ANOTHER ROUND of “negotiations.”
This is more stalling and we are SICK OF IT!
Demanding continued “negotiations” (i.e., patently obvious bad faith delay tactics) is the opposite of accepting an offer. https://t.co/ww3CcfPxoH

The woman who accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school agreed Saturday to testify in advance of a scheduled vote to advance his nomination to the Supreme Court.
“Dr. Ford accepts the Committee’s request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week,” Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys, Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, informed the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has been negotiating with Ford’s attorneys about the conditions under which she might testify to the committee. Her team missed a series of deadlines to come to an agreement, leading Grassley to call for a final answer by 2:30 on Saturday; if she wouldn’t accept an invitation to appear on Wednesday, he would proceed with a plan to vote Kavanaugh out of committee on Monday.
“Five times now we [have] granted extension for Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed [with] her desire stated one [week] ago that she wants to tell senate her story,” Grassley tweeted Friday. “Dr Ford if u changed ur mind say so so we can move on I want to hear ur testimony. Come to us or we to u.”
