Chris Wallace: ‘I’m Kind of Stunned’ Christine Ford is ‘Setting the Terms’ For Her Testimony
Chris Wallace expressed surprise over Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault accuser Christine Blasey Ford‘s list of conditions for testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Appearing on America’s Newsroom Friday, Wallace said that the Senate Judiciary doesn’t want it to seem as though they are “railroading” the Kavanaugh accuser.
“I’m kind of stunned at the idea that a witness is trying to dictate to Congress the terms under which she’ll testify,” Wallace said. “Usually, Congress sets the terms under which a witness testifies. This is another indication… of how delicate a time we’re in in the Me Too movement. And that Republicans, even though they’re in the majority on that committee, don’t want to look that (sic) they are railroading Christine Blasey Ford.”
The Fox News Sunday host believes the committee will accommodate some of Ford’s requests. But he believes it’s “maybe impossible” for Kavanaugh to testify first, as she is looking to do.
“He doesn’t even know what she’s going to say,” Wallace said. “So how can he testify and answer questions when he doesn’t know what she’s going to say about date, time, place, other people who were at the party. In any kind of trial, the prosecution goes first. They make the allegations, and the accuser then answers them. So…I think that will be a nonstarter.”
