Kavanaugh accuser agrees to testify in Senate hearing

Kavanaugh accuser agrees to testify in Senate hearing

They include Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge (the sort-of accomplice), Patrick "PJ" Smyth and now Leland Ingham Keyser. Talks were continuing Sunday.

Through her lawyer, the woman told the committee on Saturday that she does not know Kavanaugh and she didn't remember being at a party with him, emails show.

Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Ramirez was initially hesitant to speak publicly, she told the magazine, partly because her memory contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, rejected.

"She went privately to discuss her concerns, but then understood that she would be outed", said Dobson-Hughes.

The Republican-led committee had insisted that if Ford missed a Friday night deadline to respond to the panel's latest offer, lawmakers would hold a vote Monday on recommending Kavanaugh's nomination for the full Senate to consider.

The White House's statement was similar in its wording.

More voters believe Ford, 36 percent, than Kavanaugh, 30 percent, with 34 percent unsure who to believe, the poll found.

Keyser is the third individual to contradict Ford's claim they were present at the party where the alleged sexual assault occurred.

If she told others on the committee - or even Democratic leader Chuck Schumer - about Ford's story without her permission, it risked "outing" Ford, violating a firm belief among advocacy groups that victims of sexual assault should not be compelled to relive the trauma in the pursuit of justice for the accused. A spokesman for Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, a member of the committee.

Graham, speaking on "Fox News Sunday", promised a fair hearing in which Ford and Kavanaugh "will be challenged" but said "unless there's something more" to back up her accusation, then he's "not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this".

"That's what we don't have at the moment, and it's why mainly women are forced to either say nothing or completely expose themselves".

Earlier Saturday, Vice-President Mike Pence called Kavanaugh "a man of integrity with impeccable credentials".

Patience among Republicans was running thin. Meanwhile, Republicans were pressing for a swift hearing and a vote.

The new information came hours after the Senate committee agreed to a date and time for a hearing after almost a week of uncertainty over whether Ford would appear to tell her story.

The letter says Ford "accepts" the committee's request that in the coming week she would "provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct".

Ford's lawyers asked for another day.

"I don't think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter", he said. "I will support her steadfast bravery".

Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, has said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when both were high school students in Maryland. Her attorneys wanted it just to be senators, a Grassley's staff ended their email today saying the issue was non-negotiable, and witnesses don't get to choose who asks the questions. Republican committee staff and Ford's lawyers had reached a stalemate in negotiations over the details of the testimony.

He also rejected her proposal that she testify after Kavanaugh, a position lawyers consider advantageous because it gives them a chance to rebut accusations. Democrats are mounting a robust drive to grab congressional control.

According to Ford, a drunken 17-year-old Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to tear her clothes off.

Trump has questioned Ford's account, tweeting Friday that "if the attack.was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed" with police. Trump's first nominee, Judge Gorsuch, was confirmed by the Senate on April 7, 2017.

The president's tweet brought blistering rejoinders from Democrats and a mix of silence and sighs of regret from his own party. Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, who hasn't declared support for Kavanaugh, called the remark "appalling".

Grassley has rebuffed other Ford requests, including calling additional witnesses.
