Christine Blasey Ford was taking forever to respond to whether or not she would testify on Monday against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, of whom she is accusing of committing sexually charged crimes against her three decades ago. It’s a crime she alleges happened, but so far there are no credible witnesses, nor does she really remember anything that apparently happened (or didn’t happen).
Her story isn’t adding up and she seemed nervous to go under oath where she could face committing perjury if she’s caught in a lie.
At first, Ford didn’t respond to the invitation to testify on Monday and people thought she may not show up. Now she and her lawyers are trying to call the shots. Ford, or her lawyers, said she’s open to testifying, but Monday is “not possible.”
Ford's attorney is saying her client might now be willing to testify but that a Monday hearing is "not possible."
Anything is possible, plus she has had a week's notice, plus offers to do it on phone or in CA. There should be no further delay.

The full email states:
“I would like to set up a call with you later today to discuss the conditions under which Dr. Christine Blasey Ford would be prepared to testify next week. As you are aware, she has been receiving death threats, which have been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family have been forced out of their home. She wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety. A hearing on Monday is not possible and the Committee’s insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event. Dr. Ford has asked me to let you know that she appreciates the various options you have suggested. Her strong preference continues to be for the Senate Judiciary Committee to allow for a full investigation prior to her testimony.”
Who does she think she is?
Do they know they don’t call the shots around here? Do they know that when they’re given a date to show up, that they better show up or the show goes on without them?
How dare they tell the whole country that Monday is Ford possible?”
Ford wants to testify under terms that are fair and provide her safety. However, she’s not in danger.
All of this was revealed in an email obtained by the New York Times (of course a leftist publication obtained it), “the lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford said that testifying Monday — the timetable Republicans have set for a hearing — “is not possible and the Committee’s insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event.” The lawyer reiterated that it is Dr. Blasey’s “strong preference” that “a full investigation” occur before her testimony — wording that stopped short of demanding an F.B.I. probe and suggested she is open to testifying without one.”
First of all, I highly doubt that the FBI is going to investigate an alleged crime that happened three decades ago in which the supposed victim has barely any recollection of the event, no witnesses, and virtually nothing to back up her potentially made-up story.
Second, when Ford makes a huge “stink” over something that she claims happened that many years ago, and she’s invited to tell her story, then who in the right mind would say that they were unable to make it?
Nothing about Ford’s story adds up and the shenanigans wrapped around it lead many people to believe her story is more fictional than something Stephen King would write, but a lot less scary.
Let’s not forget that Feinstein sat on Ford’s story for a while and did nothing with it.
Then an alleged fellow high school student of Ford’s make some strange claim on Twitter, then retracted it and deleted her account. That sounds legitimate, right?
Let’s get this show on the road and #ConfirmKavanaugh!
