Christine Blasey Ford statement on Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault hearing

Brett Kavanaugh waits to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month

He called the allegation against Judge Kavanaugh "a drive-by shooting".

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, said at the event: "Someone who is lying does not ask the FBI to investigate their claims".

"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. "I look forward to the opportunity to testify before the Committee", Kavanaugh wrote.

In the new email, Katz said Ford's "strong preference continues to be for the Senate Judiciary Committee to allow for a full investigation prior to her testimony". Only if the White House "demands it" will the FBI investigate the claim, Carlson said. Ford, whose identity was unknown until Sunday, had sent a letter to Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein in July.

Ford's lawyers talked to Judiciary Committee staff on Thursday night, a committee spokesman said without giving details.

Grassley's staff emailed Katz about 6 p.m. Monday that Grassley meant to re-open the confirmation hearing and invite both her and Kavanaugh to testify, about the same time the committee made that announcement publicly.

"The rush to a hearing is unnecessary, and contrary to the committee discovering the truth", Banks said.

Republicans are warning that time is running out for US Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh's accuser to tell Congress about her claim he sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers.

America's Got Talent: Shin Lim Wins Season 13
Lim's win was a big upset as British rocker Courtney Hadwin , 14, had been the favorite to win with her Janis Joplin-like voice. Vocalists Daniel Emmet and Glennis Grace were also losers this season, along with comedian Vicki Barbalok and Samuel J.

"I think its reflective of what's really happening-that these allegations come in the midst of a Senate confirmation for a position on the United States Supreme Court as they did in my case, just 32 days before the election", Moore said.

He added that "if she does not show up it would be unfortunate".

Ford has contended that at a house party in Washington's Maryland suburbs, a drunken Kavanaugh tried undressing her and stifling her cries on a bed before she fled. "We've all made clear this is her chance". Grassley said he was disturbed to learn of the threats.

Grassley, an Iowa Republican, told Democrats on the committee Wednesday that he had no further patience for delays in Kavanaugh's confirmation process.

"To take a man like this and besmirch - now with that being said, let her have her say and let's see how it all works out", Trump said during an interview on Fox News just before his rally in Las Vegas.

Gail Zika, 74, who is also a Nashville Democrat, said Ford appears to have a "legitimate claim". His Republican party accuses the Democrats of using Ford as a last-minute spoiler to try and wreck Kavanaugh's path to the highest court, where he would tilt the bench firmly to the right for possibly years to come.

Palo Alto University issued a statement supporting Ford. Although they have yet to hire someone to fill the role, the Republicans have been eager to avoid the image of 11 male senators questioning Ford about her account. Republicans have said they will move forward with a vote on Kavanaugh if Ford does not testify. They know that on the one hand, you offend women if you believe somebody that says they weren't guilty of sexual misconduct. Judge has denied witnessing the alleged assault and refused to speak publicly on the matter.

"Chrissy is not someone who chooses to be in the spotlight", the letter said.
