Brett Kavanaugh accuser offers to testify to Senate

Brett Kavanaugh accuser offers to testify to Senate

He has also stated that the hearing may be cancelled if Ford refuses to testify. Kavanaugh won't have the ability to confront his accuser; not only that, she wants to reverse the entire criminal procedure process by having the defense testify without ever hearing the actual claims against him.

A lawyer for a woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sex assault decades ago says she'd be willing to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee next week if they can agree to terms "that are fair and which ensure her safety".

Judge Kavanaugh has issued a fresh rebuttal of the allegation.

Ford has responded that Monday is out of the question because it does not give her enough time to prepare and to make sure of proper security, given the many death threats she has received since coming forward. Trump asked. "I mean you could also say when did this all happen, what's going on?"

Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, has been given a Friday deadline by the Republican-led Judiciary Committee to decide whether to testify at a high-stakes hearing it has scheduled for Monday.

Since Ford's name became public, Democrats and Republicans on and off the Judiciary Committee have traded barbs.

They also asked the committee to subpoena Mark Judge, whom Ford has named as the other teen in the room at the time.

"She wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety", Katz wrote in the email, which was obtained by The Associated Press after first being reported by The New York Times. That is according to a Senate aide who wasn't authorized to discuss the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Ford's camp and the Democrats opposed to Kavanaugh's confirmation quickly balked, demanding an "FBI investigation" despite the Department of Justice's repeated assertion that the accusation, as it involves no potential federal crime, is not under the Bureau's general investigative jurisdiction and that their role in background investigations for nominees does not include credibility determinations.

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

Rather than attend parties, Ford disappeared. Other Republican senators, including Lindsay Graham, have fallen in line behind Grassley, saying that there is "no reason" to call Ford to testify because they already know what he will say - exactly what he said in his letter.

By refusing to call Mark Judge as a witness, and refusing to direct the FBI to investigate, Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the president are in lockstep. But when word leaked out that Feinstein had some information about an allegation regarding Kavanaugh, Ford detailed the incident in an interview with the Washington Post published online September 16.

The phone call, between Ford lawyers Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, Grassley and ranking committee Democrat Dianne Feinstein, ended without any formal agreement to testify, the sources said. Trump refrained from tweeting about his nominee.

The tweet was Trump's strongest indication of support for Brett Kavanaugh yet, after the president had spent much of the week vowing he would listen respectfully to Ford's allegations.
