Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) gave Christine Blasey Ford a deadline of when she could testify before the Senate would vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Ford’s team asked for a 24-hour extension, further trying to stall Kavanaugh from becoming a member of SCOTUS.

Now, Grassley has caved to Ford’s demands.

Enter Grassley:

Democrat Senator Kamala Harris (CA), a presumptive 2020 presidential candidate, says the “reasonable doubt” standard does not apply to Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

She makes it clear that the sexual assault allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford do not need to be proven by Senators.

In other words, Kavanaugh is already guilty in her eyes and cannot be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

From Daily Beast:

There’s a distinction between what we need to do as members of the Senate—we have a constitutional responsibility to advise and consent—versus the role of a criminal court, which would be to prove something beyond a reasonable doubt,” Harris, who only joined the committee in January, said in an interview with The Daily Beast. “Because the consequence of that is going to prison.”

Harris, who served as San Francisco’s district attorney and California’s attorney general over a 25-year career as a prosecutor, specialized in child sexual-assault cases early in her career. Later, she focused her efforts on curbing sexual misconduct on college campuses. In 2016, when she was serving as attorney general, she slammed the judge who sentenced Brock Turner, the Stanford swimmer who was convicted of sexual assault, to just six months behind bars. She said the victim was denied “dignity.”

Harris then referred to Kavanaugh as “this guy”:

“In this situation, let’s be clear about this, this is about whether or not this guy should get a promotion. That’s the inquiry. And we do not have the burden of proving this beyond a reasonable doubt,” added Harris, who said this week that she believes Ford’s allegations. “This is about whether he has the judgment, the character, and the suitability to serve a lifetime appointment on the highest court. Which is a court that has, as its purpose and responsibility, to be the purveyor of justice.”

Harris’ no-holds-barred attitude both as a prosecutor and as a politician has launched her into the 2020 presidential spotlight, and she has rarely missed opportunities to put herself on the map as a suitable challenger to President Donald Trump. A Democratic aide familiar with the planning said the senator is expected to “take no prisoners” when or if she gets the chance to interrogate Kavanaugh again.”
