Ford added that she visited the other classmate in a hospital. And Trump attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions once again, saying "I don't have an attorney general". He says he is willing to appear before the committee Monday to deny the allegations lodged against him. Dean Heller (D-NV), Trump said, "One of the reasons I was elected was because you believed I was going to pick great Supreme Court Justices". Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford.
In a letter to Ford's attorneys released Wednesday, Grassley said "no one should be subject to that behavior". "Fairness and respect for her situation dictate that she should have time to deal with this". "She is now unable to go home, and is receiving ongoing threats to her and her family's safety".
In almost an hour-long telephone call in which the Judiciary Committee staff did most of the listening, Debra Katz, an attorney for Christine Blasey Ford, went through a series of concerns and preferences should she agree to appear before the committee next week. "
The rush to a hearing is unnecessary, and contrary to the Committee discovering the truth."
The Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees Supreme Court nominations, has scheduled a hearing for Monday and invited both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify.
Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh leaves his home Wednesday in Chevy Chase, Md.
"The FBI does not make a credibility assessment of any information it receives with respect to a nominee".
She spoke with staff for the Judiciary Committee's chair and ranking member and laid out their requests in order for Ford to testify next week, including that Kavanaugh not be in the same room. She identified four people as being at the party, including Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge, but "none of the four lived in the vicinity of the Columbia Country Club", Whelan tweeted. As some have dragged her name through the mud and threatened her life, others have excused Kavanaugh's actions as typical teenager behavior. And how the public watching the proceedings react to all of it. Ford testifying injects a massive amount of fluctuation and uncertainty into the proceedings.
Hirono's outrage - and her commitment to holding male nominees accountable - has a deep history. Cristina Miranda King wrote, "This incident did happen".
A senior White House official said Kavanaugh and his wife also have received threats. But as many turn their backs on her, film director Paola Mendoza launched #DearProfessorFord to show Christine that she has a lot of support as well.
It remains to be seen whether or not Dr. Ford will come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify against Judge Kavanaugh. "She needs to have the FBI investigate".
Numerous Republicans had called for the confirmation process to move forward if Ford would not agree to testify, and they accused Democrats of trying to stall the confirmation process. Republicans are unlikely to agree to calling witnesses aside from Ford and Kavanaugh.
Meanwhile, on Facebook, Eric Ruyak, a former Prep student, wrote it was "no surprise" Judge was involved in Ford's allegations, adding that he defended a priest from the school that Ruyak said molested him.
