Republican Senator of Iowa/Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley made the timeline of the sexual assault investigation into Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh public on Friday.
Senator Grassley revealed the timeline after the FBI explained to the Senate that their investigation brought no solid evidence to corroborate the 36-year-old claims made against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford.
The FBI could not find any witnesses to corroborate Ford’s story, however they did speak to several individuals named by Ford who disputed the story.
Chuck Grassley brought the document to the attention of Senate Judiciary Committee members this past Friday.
Below is the transcript of the document:
Actions by Chairman Grassley and the Senate Judiciary Committee related to allegations made and disputed regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh:
A 38-year member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chairman Grassley has worked to secure a thorough, credible and effective committee process as the U.S. Senate meets its constitutional duty of advice and consent in considering the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. Grassley reopened the hearing after four days and 32 hours of testimony from the nominee during the week of September 4, including a closed session available to all Judiciary Committee members to scrutinize any issues or concerns about the nominee that involve confidentiality. The supplemental hearing took place on September 27, and it provided a fair and professional forum for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to share allegations she made about the nominee, and for the nominee to respond to questions and address those allegations.
In addition, Chairman Grassley has conducted extensive review and investigation of the allegations made by Dr. Ford and comments and statements made by others both in news media reports and in messages to other senators that have been given to the Judiciary Committee. A description of those efforts is provided here.
On August 20, 2018, Brett Kavanaugh and Dianne Feinstein had a meeting. It was not until weeks later that Feinstein brought up the sexual assault allegations against him. Her actions were deliberate.
Feinstein and her Democratic colleagues have known for far longer about the allegations than they led on.
She is a liar and cannot be trusted.
