Ford wants FBI investigation before testifying

"I don't think Federal Bureau of Investigation really should be involved because they don't want to be involved", Trump said. The letter, signed by 65 women who say they knew Kavanaugh in high school. insists that the judge "has behaved honorably and treated women with respect".

They were on the beach when she first told him about having sent a letter about the alleged assault to her congresswoman, Anna Eshoo, and that she had left an anonymous tip on a Washington Post hotline.

Days before he was expected to be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, Brett M. Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault in high school in a way that echoes Hill's allegations against Thomas in 1991.

"I've made it clear that I'm not comfortable moving ahead with the vote on Thursday if we have not heard her side of the story or explored this further", Arizona's Jeff Flake, a member of the committee, told the Post.

Trump has also supported Kavanaugh after the accusation, though he said he wanted the allegation to be aired.

The FBI, however, has said that it does not deal with this kind of allegation in a statement released after Sen.

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", she said.

Though Democrats and Republicans on the committee have both said they believe Ford deserves to be heard, they're at odds over the way to do so. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) has made it her personal duty to ask all Trump administration nominees that encounter the Senate Judiciary Committee if they've ever committed sexual harassment or assault.

The remarks by McConnell, R-Ky., seemed aimed at signaling that while Ford will be given her opportunity to detail her allegations under oath, party leaders - certainly for now - were not easing off their support of Trump's nominee.

Now, Ford and Kavanaugh will both testify in a public hearing on Monday. He repeated his frequent assertion that the USA has been the victim of unfair trade practices, saying "we've been ripped off by China, we've been ripped off by.the European Union, we've been ripped off by everybody". Mr Kavanaugh and his friend were both drunk, she says.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, which is overseeing the nomination, had called a hearing for Monday to look into the allegations. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. "I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity".

Kavanaugh was seen Monday morning arriving at the White House, which has stood by the judge in the face of the accusations.

Ford, now 51, said she was able to escape after Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, tried to jump on them. On Monday, Republican Senator Susan Collins welcomed the additional hearing.

While Dr. Ford's life was being turned upside down, you and your staff scheduled a public hearing for her to testify at the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. Senators on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident.

"At this very moment, the issue is moving so fast that accurate predictions are hard to make", said Steven Law, who leads the super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Tennessee's Bob Corker also said the vote should be delayed until Mrs Ford is heard, while Lisa Murkowski told CNN a delay was something "they might have to consider".

The development comes a day after Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Senator Chuck Grassley announced plans for the hearing.
