Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly challenged Christine Blasey Ford for demanding so much of the Senate Judiciary Committee, during an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Wednesday.
“What do you think of where this is at right now tonight with all these demands from the witness, the accuser, and the insistence of the committee that they’re going to go ahead on Monday take it or not?” Matthews asked.
“I think Dr. Ford is running out of options,” Kelly bluntly told him.
“I think she needs to show up on Monday and offer her testimony if she wants to be heard because for better or for worse, she is not in charge of this. The Senate is in charge of this. That committee is in charge of this and their obligation is to provide advice and consent to the president on his judicial nominee so they get to decide what will inform that decision,” she continued.
Kelly then raised the fact that the Senate has offered to reopen hearings and Chuck Grassley offered to send an individual to California to interview her. “She’s rejected all of those. Senator Cornyn is right. She isn’t in a position to demand protocols. It’s not her right,” Kelly concluded.
