Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley drew a line in the sand regarding Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct hearings Tuesday, saying he plans to cancel the entire event should his accuser fail to “show up.”
Grassley was speaking with Hugh Hewitt Tuesday when he confirmed his office has reached out to Christine Blasey Ford “three or four times” in the last 36 hours but have so far failed to hear from her or her attorney.
“We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours three or four times by email and we have not heard from them, and it kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?” said Grassley.
“What would be the purpose of the hearing if Dr. Ford doesn’t want to respond?” he asked.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell echoed Grassley’s comments Tuesday, saying “Monday is her opportunity” to address Congressional leaders.

BOOKER EXPLODES: Cory Violates Senate Rules, LEAKS KAVANAUGH Email, Invites ‘Consequences’
Sen. Cory Booker openly defied Senate rules during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing this week; announcing his plan to intentionally leak a prior email exchange from his time as a lawyer for President George W. Bush.
Booker exploded during Kavanaugh’s confirmation process over an email surrounding “racial profiling,” saying his office will publicly leak the message knowing it could result from a “potential ousting from the Senate.”

“When this process is finished I’m going to release the email about racial profiling. I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” said Booker.
“If Sen. Cornyn believes that I’ve violated Senate rules then I openly invite and accept the consequences,” he added.
