Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford opens door to testifying next week

Judge Brett Kavanaugh

It also says: "Her preference continues to be" however "a full investigation prior to her testimony".

She continued: "She wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety".

The Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees Supreme Court nominations, has scheduled a hearing for Monday and invited both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify.

Kavanaugh was accused Sunday of sexual assault when he was in high school, a number of politicians and their staff have been widely criticized for blurting out some remarkably insensitive things about it, mostly about his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

Capitol Police arrested 56 protesters Thursday who flooded Senate office buildings to voice opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and express support for his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

And it's really important I think to point out that Ford herself hasn't made it clear whether or not she will or won't show up.

The Pixel 3 XL is seen to have a deep notch, which some users would consider ugly given the lack of symmetry in design. However, the Pixel 3 has been listed on the Chinese website JD.com, carrying a price tag of $729 (RMB 4,999).

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. The Democratic party is nearly universally calling for an FBI investigation that it knows full well is not going to happen, and should not happen, and using its absence as a reason for the hearing to be delayed.

This is in keeping with what Carlson said - that it's on the White House to request the FBI investigation in this case. "They have until this Friday at 10:00 a.m.to let us know whether they are coming", he said.

In one obstacle that must be overcome, attorney Debra Katz's email said a hearing Monday is "not possible" and that scheduling it that day "is arbitrary in any event". He offered to send committee aides to her California home to take testimony. Democrats would love to have the option to stop what just last week seemed like a sure thing, replacing a swing vote on the Supreme Court with a conservative one.

Senate Republicans have been clamoring to get Ford in front of the committee before lawmakers vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

"Requiring an FBI investigation of a 36-year-old allegation (without specific references to time or location).is not about finding the truth, but delaying the process until after the midterm elections", Sen.

"Senate Republicans are attempting to make Dr. Blasey Ford testify on just a few days' notice - without having the Federal Bureau of Investigation follow up on her allegations and provide a report first", said the letter, which was spearheaded by Senators Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. In the poll, conducted from September 11-17, 36% of United States adults surveyed did not want Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, up 6% points from a similar poll a month earlier, while 31% favored Kavanaugh's appointment.

Democrats, already opposed to Kavanaugh even before Ford made her allegation, accused Republicans of trying to railroad the nomination through the Senate.
