Judiciary Committee to Hear from Kavanaugh, Ford in Public Hearing

 WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) today announced that the Committee will hold a public hearing with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
 
“As I said earlier, anyone who comes forward as Dr. Ford has done deserves to be heard.  My staff has reached out to Dr. Ford to hear her account, and they held a follow-up call with Judge Kavanaugh this afternoon.  Unfortunately, committee Democrats have refused to join us in this effort.  However, to provide ample transparency, we will hold a public hearing Monday to give these recent allegations a full airing,” Grassley said.
 
Below is the official notice for Monday’s hearing.
