Grassley both-sidesing right off the bat: “Both Dr. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh have had a terrible couple of weeks.” Did Kavanaugh have to move out of his home due to death threats or...?
Grassley digging in on Feinstein keeping Dr. Blasey Ford’s letter confidential, right in front of Dr. Ford WHO REQUESTED FEINSTEIN DO SO, and not at all subtly implying that Democrats leaked the letter to media.
Chuck Grassley all week: “we hired a lady lawyer to depoliticize these very serious proceedings which we are definitely taking seriously”

Chuck Grassley today: opens hearing with heavily political speech blaming Democrats for everything that’s gone wrong with Kavanaugh
Feinstein begins to introduce Dr. Ford and Grassley interrupts to snit that he had every intention of doing so if she hadn’t take it upon herself
This just in: Chuck Grassley is an octogenarian BABY
Feinstein reading statements from other classmates refuting Kavanaugh’s self-characterization as a choirboy.
Feinstein: “this is not a trial of Dr. Ford. It’s a job interview for Judge Kavanaugh.”
Christine Blasey Ford is so brave. So brave. I am in utter awe.
This is utterly devastating. “I thought because Brett didn’t rape me, I should just move on.” Maybe America will finally understand just how common an experience this is for women.
Someone hacked Dr. Ford’s work email and sent out messages recanting her account
Still just revolted that Republicans hired a woman prosecutor to soft pedal their interrogation of and attempt to discredit Dr. Ford
Grassley intro-ing a 15 minute break, but stops to yell at Democrats again first.
We are back. Mitchell has an aide holding up a map of Bethesda with a 1 mile radius around the Columbia Country Club (Ford says the Home was between her home and the country club)
The approach seems to be to try to discredit Ford using the lack of specificity around the date of the party and how she got to the party and back. It’s not a good look.
Mitchell asking about Ford’s therapy notes and whether the Wapo reporter actually saw them.
I just realized (late) that the line of questioning Mitchell just took was...the Ed Whelan conspiracy theory. My god.
Grassley is just...unhinged. Defensive, angry, rambling and ranting. Klobuchar interrupts to remind him that President Bush asked the investigation be reopened in the Anita Hill case.
Oh my GOD. Ford had said the incident “contributed” to anxiety and PTSD and Mitchell is grabbing onto the word “contributed” to try to lead her into saying something else caused them.
Mitchell attempted to discredit Ford by citing her fear of flying then talking about how she’s flown places.
Seriously if the worst they can come up with on Ford is that she’s afraid of flying and has worked to conquer that fear...wow. Good luck, GOP.
Klobuchar requests to put the polygraph results in the record, Grassley gripes and demands the underlying charts. Ford’s lawyer tells him he refused the request to have the person who administered the polygraph testify, therefore the supporting materials aren’t available.
Grassley is obsessed with making sure everyone knows he offered to come to California to meet with Dr. Ford.
Blumenthal now reading from Lindsey Graham’s book, where he describes the courage of victims who testify against their abusers. Those words stand starkly against Graham’s victim-blaming, misogynist sound bites during all this.
“I endured it. It was fine.” Dr. Ford on taking the polygraph test (and also all women everywhere)
Aunt Lydia’s direction now is apparently that Dr. Ford did this for money.
