Kavanaugh Accuser Makes Tentative Deal To Testify Thursday

Blasey Ford's story is by now familiar to anyone who's tuned in to a USA news channel in the past week: she alleges that a drunken Kavanaugh steered her into a bedroom and tried to undress her during a gathering of teens in suburban Maryland in the 1980s.

Republican lawmakers and the White House this weekend have cast doubt on Ford's allegations, citing others she said also were at the party in question saying they have no recollection of it.

A tentative agreement was reached Saturday for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hear testimony Thursday from Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault from decades ago, according to two people briefed on the matter.

Earlier on Saturday, a senior official at the White House said Ms Ford's requests amounted to "a clever way to push off the vote Monday without committing to appear Wednesday". Republicans have continued to harp on Feinstein for keeping the letter private, but she says she was honoring Ford's wishes and, now that it is part Kavanaugh's background check file, has declined to release it publicly.

"She shld decide so we can move on". Noting in a statement that "I knew them both", she added: "There is zero chance that I would confuse them". I hope u understand. "It's not my normal approach to be indecisive".

Support for Kavanaugh's nomination in the Senate has fallen largely on party lines, with his confirmation ultimately in the hands of a small number of swing-vote senators.

"We've made important progress", said Ford's attorneys Debra S. Katz, Lisa J. Banks, and Michael R. Bromwich. She said she was able to escape, but the Washington Post reported that she described the episode to a therapist in 2013 as a "rape attempt". In a freaky turn, one of those allies, the conservative legal analyst Edward Whelan, posted pictures on Twitter Thursday night of a high school classmate of Kavanaugh's - with the man's name - and suggested he was responsible for the assault.

Ford agreed to testify Thursday after an increasingly ugly weeklong standoff that saw her forced to leave her California home as she faced death threats and the president openly attacked her credibility.

Pence also says that he and President Donald Trump are confident that Republicans will handle that process "with the utmost respect for all concerned". "How the Senate handles this, and the Senate Republicans handle this, will be a test of this time - of 2018". "I have never done anything like what the accuser describes -- to her or to anyone".

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Sunday that the teams were "deep" in trade talks, which peaked the week of the NFL Draft. The information leak proposes that Rob Gronkowski's manifest destiny was the only thing holding back the transaction.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is now facing a new allegation from another woman who says he exposed himself without her consent during their college years at Yale.

One classmate who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party, according to the magazine. "The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so". "So I thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate and wrong".

Keyser's denial could be viewed as the most powerful since she is reportedly Ford's lifelong friend, something Ford's lawyers haven't disputed. Before the 2016 presidential election, more than a dozen women accused Trump of making unwanted advances.

Democrats, meanwhile, took to Twitter themselves to criticise Trump for questioning Blasey. "She should have her say". "This is the same man who has been credibly accused of more than a dozen cases of sexual assault or harassment".

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, immediately called for a postponement of Kavanaugh's nomination and called for the FBI to investigate both Ford and Ramirez's allegations.

"Dr. Ford will tell her story in the face of an impossible choice and vile bullying by Republican leadership", said Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT, a Judiciary Committee member.

Ramirez is calling for an FBI investigation of her claim.

As for Kavanaugh, he tells the New Yorker.

McConnell's goal has been to confirm Kavanaugh by 1 October, the start of the Supreme Court term.
