Sen. Mazie Hirono: Grassley’s Claim He’s Doing Everything to Contact Kavanaugh Accuser is ‘Such Bullsh*t’
Senator Mazie Hirono called “bullshit” on Republican lawmaker’s claims that they have done everything they can to reach out to Brett Kavanaugh‘s accuser.
Hirono hasn’t bit her tongue with regards to Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation she was sexually assaulted by Trump’s SCOTUS nominee 36 years ago. Just yesterday, she railed against abuse, telling American men: “Just shut up! And step up. Do the right thing for a change.”
Now, Hirono is railing against Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley‘s claims that Republicans have done everything they can to contact Ford.
“That is such bullshit I can hardly stand it,” Hirono told ABC News reporter Ali Rogin.
Grassley’s communications adviser called bullshit on Hirono’s call of bullshit:
This is such nonsense. The Committee has sent 9 emails and left 2 voicemails. https://t.co/30xsHYFpAk

Grassley has been urging Ford to attend a hearing on Monday morning to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegations. Ford’s lawyers have argued that an FBI investigation should be conducted beforehand, and dismissed the Monday hearing as too hasty.
