Kavanaugh on Monday Hearing: 'I Will Be There'

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has denied the allegations

The preference would be for Ford to testify next Thursday, and she doesn't want Kavanaugh in the same room, her attorney Debra Katz told Judiciary Committee staff in a 30-minute call that also touched on security concerns and others issues, according to a Senate aide who wasn't authorized to discuss the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Ford, 51, alleged in a letter obtained by Sen.

However, Katz maintained that Blasey still preferred that the committee fully investigated her claims before she testified. The Nevada senator refused to unequivocally endorse Trump in the presidential race, and shortly before the 2016 election, would not say for whom he planned to vote.

The statement to the Senate came after Republicans vowed Thursday morning to press forward with a vote on Kavanaugh if Ford declined to testify on Monday.

The furious jockeying over Ford's testimony underscores the political potency so close to an election that will decide control of the House and the Senate, not to mention the confirmation of a conservative justice likely to serve on the high court for decades.

Trump, steering clear of criticizing Ford on the advice of aides, predicted Kavanaugh will ultimately be confirmed.

"As you are aware, she has been receiving death threats, which have been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family have been forced out of their home", the email said. In her Twitter post, Mendoza explained that the video was to show that "millions of us have your back".

Bozell, who describes herself as an independent, said she found the timing of the allegations suspicious and believed Kavanaugh was an "upstanding man" who was being "smeared" and that his family was being torn apart. "This strikes us as simply a check-the-box exercise in a rush to confirm Judge Kavanaugh".

WHAT HE SAID: "But the people of North Carolina, South Carolina , Virginia, all of the areas affected, have been incredible". Trump spoke briefly about the "epic" flooding and promised to throw all the money at North Carolina as soon as possible.

Ford and Democrats want the FBI to investigate her allegations Kavanaugh assaulted her three decades ago, but Republicans are refusing.

Hirono became a state legislator in 1980, where she says she worked on improving sexual assault laws. Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, has set a 10 a.m. Friday deadline for her decision.

Demonstrators have congregated in a Senate office building to protest Republicans' handling of the sexual-assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"Both of them need to testify under oath next Monday before the Judiciary Committee", Collins said. Orin Hatch told CNN, "We're going to proceed".

Christine Blasey Ford, a 51-year-old university professor, accuses Trump's pick for the high court of sexual misconduct.

Ford has said she wants the FBI to investigate her claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980s. The FBI went to work questioning Hill and others, and ultimately the Judiciary Committee convened hearings at which she and Thomas appeared. "She's not asking for extraordinary measures, she's asking for basic fairness".

Trump said Ford "deserves" to be heard and should have an opportunity to share her story at a high-stakes hearing scheduled for Monday, which was thrown into turmoil when her lawyers requested an FBI investigation before she testifies.

It remained unclear, though, whether Ms Ford would attend or if the hearing would occur without her.
