Kavanaugh Accuser Open To Testifying About Sexual Assault Allegations

Christine Blasey Ford May Testify Next Week After All

Republicans have addressed the allegation by setting a tentative hearing on Monday featuring testimony from Ford and the Supreme Court nominee. They fear that without a shared set of facts, Republicans would simply move quickly after the testimony to confirm Kavanaugh.

Ford's lawyer Debra Katz said earlier in an email to committee staff that Ford would be willing to testify under "terms that are fair and which ensure her safety" after she had received death threats.

"Beyond the Senate, Republicans are bracing for the impact of Monday's scheduled hearing and the political consequences of an unpredictable and likely emotional session that could expand a Senate matter into a defining moment for the party, especially if Grassley or other Republican men aggressively question Ford about her personal life and the alleged assault". On Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham said the Democrats' handling of the Ford accusations has been "a drive-by shooting when it comes to Kavanaugh".

The email from an attorney for Christine Blasey Ford to committee aides also says that holding the session on Monday isn't possible.

Ford has said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when both were high school students in Maryland, an allegation Kavanaugh has called "completely false".

On Wednesday, Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Sen.

As for a possible Federal Bureau of Investigation intervention, Mr Grassley said in his letter to Ford's lawyers, "We have no power to commandeer an Executive Branch agency into conducting our due diligence".

Ford now says that she does not plan to testify until the FBI investigates her allegations. Only if the White House "demands it" will the FBI investigate the claim, Carlson said. But Ford said through her lawyers that she did not want to testify before the FBI investigates her allegation.

Amid the maneuvering, the nomination was roiled further late Thursday by incendiary tweets from a prominent Kavanaugh friend and supporter who publicly identified another high school classmate of Kavanaugh's as Ford's possible attacker.

In light of the recent allegations made against Kavanaugh and what you previously knew of him, do you think he should sit on the Supreme Court?

Also on Thursday, Alaska Governor Bill Walker and Lieutenant Governor Byron Mallott announced they oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation, creating pressure on the state's Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, a moderate who hasn't announced how she will vote.

Dr Ford first spoke about the incident in 2012, to a therapist, whose notes say she reported having been attacked by four youths, and do not mention Kavanaugh by name. On Thursday, Alaska Gov. Bill Walker and Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott - both independents - issued a statement opposing Kavanaugh's nomination.

"The Senate Judiciary Committee has extended invitations to Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh to testify on Monday, September 24". And that is bad news for Kavanaugh's chances at confirmation. The White House. Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI investigate these claims. "They have always when they come forward with an accusation of assault or rape", Mr. Garamendi said on CNN.

Several women came forward and accused Moore of engaging in sexual misconduct with them when they were teenagers ahead of his election before losing to Democrat Doug Jones past year.
