Kavanaugh accuser’s attorneys iron out details. Here’s when Christine Ford will testify

The email doesn't even say she will testify. Ford's attorney said she could not be there until later in the week. Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, had said a vote would proceed in the absence of a response from Ford's team by the cutoff time. Other terms of the public hearing will be negotiated Sunday. The person said Mr Kavanaugh would also appear.

Kavanaugh has denied the sexual assault allegation. Kavanaugh, an appellate court judge, denied the allegation and said he wanted to testify as soon as possible to clear his name.

Ford says that Kavanaugh was drunk at a house party in about 1982, and that he pulled her into a bedroom then pinned her down on a bed, tried to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth to stop her from screaming.

Her lawyers previously suggested that the committee's senators question their client, not an outside counsel.

On Friday, President Donald Trump sought to cast doubt on Ford's allegation.

On Friday, Trump abandoned any restraint over Blasey Ford as he demanded that the Republican-controlled Senate get on with confirming Kavanaugh - and so tilt the highest U.S. judicial body further to the right before November's crucial mid-term elections.

In the clip, the women, including Sosa, unanimously say the believe Kavanaugh's denial that any encounter ever took place between himself and Christine Blasey Ford, a Palo Alto University professor.

Trump's searing reproach defied the Senate Republican strategy, and the advice of White House aides, of not disparaging Ford while firmly defending his nominee and the tight timetable for confirming him.

The official was not authorized to speak publicly about ongoing negotiations and spoke on condition of anonymity. President Trump also challenged the credibility of the allegations, asking on Twitter, "Why didn't someone call the Federal Bureau of Investigation 36 years ago".


A top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee said the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault is "a credible witness" who has been subject to death threats since coming forward with her allegation.

"Dr. Ford accepts the Committee's request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct next week", the lawyers wrote to the committee.

Earlier Saturday amid the latest deadline standoff Vice President Mike Pence called Kavanaugh "a man of integrity with impeccable credentials".

"In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the Supreme Court", McConnell said at the Values Voter Summit Friday. "Republicans should respect Dr. Blasey Ford's wishes, as they should respect the wishes of all victims of sexual assault". Judge Kavanaugh is being nominated to the highest court in our land. Cleveland served almost 25 years as a permanent law clerk to a federal appellate judge and is a former full-time faculty member and current adjunct instructor at the college of business at the University of Notre Dame.

Republicans have an 11-10 majority on the Senate Judiciary Committee, so one Republican refusing to back Kavanaugh could stall the nomination, at least briefly, FiveThirtyEight reports.

He shrugged off responsibility for the extension onto the Senate's Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer.

"The first time it happened, I was 7". "So Republicans, no matter what happens in the midterms, can push a Supreme Court nominee through until the end of the year".

As revealed by both the Washington Post and the New York Times, Ford originally sent a letter to her Representative, Anna Eshoo.
