Following up on his request for private documents from therapy sessions and polygraph information, Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is now asking for more information from professor Christine Blasey Ford.

In a letter he sent to Blasey Ford’s lawyers Thursday, he alluded to information revealed in the FBI report and demanded documentation of her communication with some Democratic senators, potential witnesses and other accusers of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“In addition to the evidence I requested in my October 2 letter, in light of recently uncovered information, please turn over records and descriptions of direct or indirect communications between Dr. Ford or her representatives and any of of the following: (1) U.S. Senators or their staffs, particularly the offices of Senators Feinstein and Hirono… (2) the alleged witnesses identified by Dr. Ford (Leland Keyser, Mark Judge, and Patrick ‘P.J.’ Smyth); and (3) Debbie Ramirez, Julie Swetnick, or their representatives,” the letter reads.
