Talking Points Memo reports:
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley reiterated that Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, should consider a hearing he has schedule for Monday her only opportunity to air her allegations, in a letter to her attorneys Wednesday afternoon.
“It is not the FBI’s role to investigate a matter such as this,” Grassley said. Kavanaugh has denied Blasey Ford’s allegation. “I certainly understand and respect Dr. Ford’s desire for an investigation of her allegations. That is precisely what the Senate is doing,” Grassley’s letter said.
