Brett Kavanaugh accuser in talks to testify next week, report says

Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, set a Friday deadline for Ford to respond to the committee in advance of a hearing he scheduled for Monday.

And it was - as I said, I asked her many questions.

On Wednesday, Republicans, who have rebuffed Ford's request for Federal Bureau of Investigation intervention, urged Ford to accept their invitation to testify and signaled they'd forge ahead with Kavanaugh's confirmation.

This isn't the first time allegations have come up during a Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

According to her lawyer, Ford is willing to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Majority Republicans, haunted by the panel's 1991 treatment of Anita Hill during Justice Clarence Thomas' confirmation hearings, say the invitation to testify publicly on Monday stands.

The email was a sharp turnabout from statements by Ford and her lawyers in the past few days, in which her insistence on an FBI investigation of her allegations and other demands had cast strong doubts on her willingness to appear. She has so far refused, saying she would testify only if the FBI first investigated her allegation.

On Wednesday, Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Sen. Her lawyers wrote to the Senate Judiciary Committee saying Ford wants to cooperate. "The rush to a hearing is unnecessary and contrary to the Committee discovering the truth".

Ford's allegation has jeopardized Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime post on the Supreme Court, which previously was on track toward confirmation. Very hard for me to imagine that anything happened'.

"If she shows up, that would be wonderful". At the same time, however, her worst fears have materialized. Grassley said he was disturbed to learn of the threats. 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.

Republican lawmakers are trying to win Senate confirmation for Kavanaugh ahead of the court's start of a new term on October 1 or, if not by then, ahead of the November 6 nationwide congressional elections, to show Republican voters they have made good on campaign promises to place conservative judges like Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.

"She said she wanted to appear but if she changes her mind and refuses to appear, there's not much we can do", Sen.

Gillibrand says it's "bullying" for Republicans to say Ford must show up Monday or not at all.

The lawmakers touted a letter of support they said was signed by more than 1,000 Holton-Arms alumnae. Her newfound political celebrity was also apparent earlier in the day, when protesters against Kavanaugh's nomination greeted her with cheers and applause at a Senate office building.

Interested in Supreme Court?

The university's president called Ford's decision to come forward courageous. Lisa Murkowski, each has now expressed consternation at Ford's apparent unwillingness to testify soon. Ford has said Judge witnessed the alleged assault.

Judge's lawyer said in a letter to the committee on Tuesday that Judge did not recall the incident and did not wish to testify.
