Under right terms, Kavanaugh accuser may testify after all

Ford Willing to Testify With Restrictions Next Thursday

Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a possible 2020 presidential candidate, said Republicans were "bullying" Ford by giving her a Monday deadline to testify.

Mr Trump's change in tone - and apparent shift in tactics - came as Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers negotiated with the Senate Judiciary Committee on the terms for her possible testimony next week in a dramatic showdown over her accusation that threatens Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Trump tweeted that if Ford thought what happened to her years ago was "as bad as she says, " she should have alerted law enforcement.

It will also place Ford, a 51-year-old California professor who had lived a quiet life before she publicly accused Kavanaugh of a physical sexual attack when they were in high school, at the center of a political and media firestorm.

Ford said that Kavanaugh and his male friend, who were reportedly drunk, laughed. Senate seven-day notice rules means her appearance would come late next week at the earliest. "Can we actually find anybody who can corroborate what Dr. Ford has said?" Scared and alone on the street with nothing in her pockets, Fagen said she ran into Kavanaugh, who made sure she got home safely.

Brett Kavanaugh's accuser is allegedly at fault for not coming forward sooner, according to Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, Ford's lawyers continue to tussle with Republican leadership on the Senate Judiciary Committee about when, if ever, she will appear before the committee to testify.

The discussion revived the possibility that the panel would hold an electrifying campaign-season hearing at which both Ford and President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee could give their versions of what did or didn't happen at a party in the 1980s. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who'd scheduled her to testify Monday. Kavanaugh has denied all parts of the allegation.

But wait. If Mark Judge's letter to the Judiciary Committee is sufficient to make its Republican members accept the contents of the letter at face value, why don't they do the same for the letter Dr Ford sent to ranking Committee member Diane Feinstein? "He remains committed to providing a fair forum for both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh", said Taylor Foy, a spokesman for Grassley.

The other women who spoke at the event described Kavanaugh as a family man who coaches a girls' basketball team, tutors children, goes to neighborhood barbeques and attends church.

'Why didn't somebody call the Federal Bureau of Investigation 36 years ago?' he asked.

By refusing to call Mark Judge as a witness, and refusing to direct the FBI to investigate, Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the president are in lockstep.

"Someone who is lying does not ask the FBI to investigate their claims", she said. Kavanaugh was seen at the White House on Thursday (Friday NZT).

The Democrats, all of whom served as prosecutors or state attorneys general, noted that President George H.W. Bush asked the FBI to investigate after law professor Anita Hill raised allegations of sexual harassment against Judge Clarence Thomas in 1991.

RAINN says there are a number of reasons why victims never report their abuse, including fear of retaliation, the belief that the police wouldn't help and feeling like the crime was a personal matter.
