Walkout In Support Of Christine Blasey Ford Planned As She Agrees To Testify
As negotiations continue for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Judge Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee,
her supporters are organizing a walkout as a show of solidarity. Blasey Ford was initially ordered to testify before the committee on September 24 in a public session, but has
continually asked for time extensions in order to “reach [an] agreement on details,” reports NPR. On September 21, the
Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley wrote in tweets that Blasey Ford’s ongoing negotiations are turning the proceedings into
a “judiciary orchestra.” He curiously directed an apology towards Kavanaugh, a man accused of sexual assault, for the delay in a hearing and confirmation vote date.
