Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have had quite the back and forth over the last few days. The committee told her if she didn’t testify by their requested date under their terms, they would move forward on the vote without her. She asked for an additional day to make her decision. While all of this was going on, other things were happening behind the scenes.
The Chief of Police for Montgomery County, Maryland announced “We are prepared to investigate if the victim wants to report to us, and we can determine it occurred in the County.”
The police chief decided to make this announcement as the deadline was looming and after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford asked for one more day.
We know that Ford is speaking out to prevent Brett Kavanaugh from a place on the Supreme Court. She’s asked for an FBI investigation because she is not holding back. The natural next step would be to file a report with the local police.
The timing of it all is very interesting and raises even more questions about what will happen next. She’s not asking for another day before she testifies, just another day to make her decision. Perhaps she does have some housekeeping to deal with first. Stay tuned for what comes next in this train wreck of a scandal.
