Kavanaugh accuser willing to testify in US Senate

Kavanaugh accuser willing to testify in US Senate

Ford wants to be questioned by senators, not a special counsel.

The president has indicated he wants Ford to testify, saying, "I really want to see her, to see what she has to say".

Monday "is not possible and the committee's insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event", Blasey Ford's lawyer Debra Katz wrote to the Judiciary Committee, adding, her client "wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety".

If Ford opts not to testify, Kavanaugh's chances for confirmation in the Republican-led Senate could be boosted, with senators in Trump's party so far remaining largely supportive.

"Donald Trump... of all people... can ask them to". Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. A substantial delay could push confirmation past the November elections, when Democrats have a shot at winning Senate control, plus allow more time for unforeseen problems to crop up.

A former classmate of Christine Blasey Ford tells NPR that she does not know if an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took place as she first suggested on social media.

Moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME, who has had her share of clashes with Mr Trump, said she hoped Ms Ford would reconsider a decision not to testify and "it's not fair to Judge Kavanaugh" if she refuses.

The email from an attorney for Christine Blasey Ford to committee aides also says that holding the session on Monday isn't possible. Hirono said the threats constitute being labeled as "intimidation of a witness".

The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to meet Monday, and Dr Ford has been asked to appear.

Canadian Justin Bieber Applying for US Citizenship Ahead of Wedding
Bieber was born and raised in Ontario, Canada but has lived in the U.S. since he was 13 when he moved with his family to Atlanta. According to TMZ , the pair were spotted outside a courthouse and it looked like they went in for a marriage license.

However, they said that she is open to negotiating a new date - under strict conditions, given the increasingly nasty atmosphere around the case.

Hirono of Hawaii and Gillibrand of NY joined other Democrats and Ford's legal team in calling for an FBI investigation into the matter.

Demonstrators protested outside Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley's office in the Hart Senate Office Building. A flood of anti-Kavanaugh protesters also descended on Capitol Hill Thursday while more Senate offices reported receiving threats related to the nomination.

Trump himself has already cast doubt on Blasey Ford's account, saying that Kavanaugh has not been treated fairly.

For her part, Ford told the Post that she had made a decision to come forward publicly with her allegation after initially wanting to avoid the exposure. Both were drunk, and Kavanaugh "pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it".

The accusations from Christine Blasey Ford, denied vehemently by Kavanaugh, threaten to slow his Senate confirmation vote, with Democrats saying the FBI should investigate the charges, a demand that is not gaining traction among Republicans. After scathing books from both his inner circle (Omarosa Manigault Newman's Unhinged) and some less close to him (Bob Woodward's Fury) were released, his Supreme Court nominee came under fire.

One of the four has yet to be publicly identified.

After going through psychotherapy, Ford said, she now understands the incident as a trauma that has had lasting impact on her life.
