New Grassley letter to Ford's lawyers, who are still refusing to turn over her therapist's notes, polygraph materials & communications with the media: "if the evidence supported your client's allegations, you surely would produce it as quickly as you could. …"
"I don't know what other inference we should draw from your refusal but that the withheld evidence does not support Dr. Ford's allegations in quite the way you have claimed."
Grassley also says "in light of recently uncovered information," (!) he asks them to turn over "records and descriptions of direct or indirect communications between Dr. Ford or her representatives and any of the following: (1) U.S. Senators or their staffs …"

This is explosive. @senjudiciary committee received a statement from a Democrat who knew Julie Swetnick in the 1990s. Here's his full statement:…
Key excerpt: "During a conversation about our sexual preferences, things got derailed when Julie told me that she liked to have sex with more than one guy at a time. In fact sometimes with several at one time. She wanted to know if that would be ok in our relationship."
“I asked her if this was just a fantasy of hers. She responded that she first tried sex with multiple guys while in high school and still liked it from time-to-time. She brought it up because she wanted to know if I would be interested in that.”

Media is very upset Kavanaugh said the smear campaign against him is partially fueled by Democrats’ rage at losing the 2016 election. They now say he showed himself to be too partisan to sit on the bench.

The same people cheered RBG when she attacked Trump by name in July 2016.
The obvious difference is that Kavanaugh has been falsely accused of some of the most heinous crimes and is defending himself, while RBG just couldn't resist attacking the Republican in an ongoing presidential election campaign.
Oh, and she's a sitting Supreme Court justice.

.@senjudiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's office says Democrats "failed to join the Chairman’s staff yesterday evening on a bipartisan call with Judge Kavanaugh in which majority and minority staff could ask him any questions that they wanted."
Committee "staff reached out to Dr. Ford’s lawyer with multiple emails yesterday to schedule a similar call and inform her of the upcoming hearing, where she will have the opportunity to share her story with the Committee. Her lawyer has not yet responded."
Feinstein's "staff declined to participate in the phone call with Judge Kavanaugh to explore the allegations Democrats initially withheld, then leaked on the eve of a committee vote. Judge Kavanaugh immediately accepted this opportunity and answered all of our questions."
