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.
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 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".

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.
