It sounds like Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley has had enough of Christine Blasey Ford and her legal team’s — and the Democrats’ — stalling tactics:

Throughout this mess, Grassley’s conduct has been nothing short of professional and courteous. He and the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have made numerous attempts to contact Ford and her attorneys, have extended her numerous opportunities to tell her story, and have been met with obfuscation at every turn. Playtime is over.
Friday 10 AM becomes the cut-off point, per the last graf. https://t.co/4jfkcRN8SU

Grassley notes at the end of this letter that Ford's written testimony and bio are due by 10am on Friday if she intends to testify on Monday — an effort to impose a decision deadline. https://t.co/AwK9SS8U8J

It's a respectful letter with a gentle reminder of the deadline at the end. Again, Grassley is doing everything he can to make sure Dr. Ford is heard. https://t.co/Lz6l0wgTTJ

Enough is enough.
Grassley to Ford [TL;DR version]: That's not how any of this works. https://t.co/r26hujqhXr

Next up, no doubt:
Ford's Lawyer: "My client wants to a hearing."
GOP: "Ok. Monday, 10am"
Media: "HOLY CRAP. THE GOP IS PRESSURING FORD!!!???"
