Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford Willing to Testify Next Week

Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford Willing to Testify Next Week

US President Donald Trump introduces his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC, July 9, 2018. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation.

Blasey Ford, however, announced that she could not make it to the Monday hearing on the set date and would testify later in the week. Top student. Went to Yale Law School.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees Supreme Court nominations, has scheduled a hearing for Monday and invited both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify. "George H.W. Bush requested that the F.B.I. look into her claims, and they did", Mystal wrote.

In the new email, Katz said Ford's "strong preference continues to be for the Senate Judiciary Committee to allow for a full investigation prior to her testimony". Only if the White House "demands it" will the FBI investigate the claim, Carlson said. But her lawyers' email appeared to open a path to negotiations over her appearance before the 21-member panel, which consists of 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats. Feinstein has said she sought to protect Ford, whose letter to lawmakers outlining the allegation against Kavanaugh requested confidentiality.

Ford's lawyers say she has been subject to death threats as a result of her allegations against Kavanaugh. In an interview with The Washington Post, Blasey said Kavanaugh pinned her down on a bed and groped her as Judge, who also appeared to be drunk, watched.

"The rush to a hearing is unnecessary, and contrary to the committee discovering the truth", Banks said. But as many turn their backs on her, film director Paola Mendoza launched #DearProfessorFord to show Christine that she has a lot of support as well.

The split between Trump Jr. and Flake illustrates the differing approach that Republicans have taken in addressing Ford's accusations.

"Dr. Ford has asked me to let you know that she appreciates the various options you have suggested", Katz wrote.

For the reigning Premier League champions, however, it seems like they might have been lacking the fan support they would have wanted.

"There is an environment where people see nothing, hear nothing, and say nothing", Hirono said this week about the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct. Republicans have moved to get Kavanaugh confirmed before the November 6 midterm election, where Democrats are expected to flip a number of GOP-held seats in the Senate.

What are Trump and other Republicans saying?

"They've delayed it a week already", Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity before a Las Vegas, Nevada, rally.

Katz reiterated that Ford would like the FBI to investigate before her testimony.

Kavanaugh was spotted at the White House on Thursday, and allies said he is eager to address the accusation. The FBI investigated the sexual harassment claims Anita Hill leveled against Justice Clarence Thomas during his confirmation process in 1991. Republicans have said the Federal Bureau of Investigation would be doing nothing more than what committee staffers could achieve by interviewing Kavanaugh and Ford.

This marks the first time this polling outfit has ever found a Supreme Court nominee underwater.

Palo Alto University issued a statement supporting Ford. Although they have yet to hire someone to fill the role, the Republicans have been eager to avoid the image of 11 male senators questioning Ford about her account.
