Christine Ford Will Testify Next Week About Kavanaugh, Her Lawyers Announce

Dozens of female colleagues classmates and friends of Brett Kavanaugh rallied in support of the embattled Supreme Court nominee on Friday saying they don’t believe the sexual assault allegation against him

Christine Ford Will Testify Next Week About Kavanaugh, Her Lawyers Announce

The statement is signed by attorney's Debra Katz and Lisa Banks.

After the deadline passed, Senator Chuck Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, revealed that he had granted Ford "another extension" to allow her to decide if she wanted to proceed. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, has given Christine Blasey Ford more time to decide on the terms of her appearance.

"I continue to want a hearing as soon as possible, so that I can clear my name", the nominee said. In a weird 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. On Friday, facing condemnation from liberals and conservatives alike, Whelan apologized.

In his tweet Friday, Trump called on Blasey to produce contemporaneous law enforcement reports "so that we can learn date, time, and place!" Ford does not enjoy being in enclosed spaces, her friends told the network.

"We know allegations of sexual assault are one of the most unreported crimes that exist", Ms Collins said at an event in Portland, the newspaper said.

This is a breaking news story and this post has been updated throughout.

"I think it's a very sad situation", he said, asking, "Why didn't somebody call the Federal Bureau of Investigation 36 years ago?"

"Your cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor who has been doing her best to cooperate with the Committee is completely inappropriate", Katz added.

He also sent a third tweet addressing Kavanaugh, telling him, "She should decide so we can move on". Dianne Feinstein of California said. "He has always been kind and good natured", she said.

But with the negotiations dragging on, Trump has been growing increasingly frustrated.

The Washington Post reported that on Sunday, Ford forwarded an email to an associate showing that Ethics and Public Policy Center president Ed Whalen had been looking at her LinkedIn profile.

But Trump went further, accusing Democrats of fabricating the case.

Christine Blasey Ford has until today at 2:30 PM Eastern time to respond to the Senate's request for an answer on whether she will testify about her experience with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand called Friday's comments a "vile attack".

"They understand that the left has failed in this country in terms of convincing Americans that their ideas work, so they've resorted to imposing them on the American people through the courts", Perkins said, referring to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion and perhaps the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision legalizing same-sex marriage. If confirmed, Kavanaugh would replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who retired after years as the court's swing vote.

"Keep the faith. Don't get rattled by all of this". "We're going to plow right through and do our jobs".

"In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court".

Privately, Republicans are anxious about the fallout from any testimony that comes from Blasey.

Until Friday, Mr Trump had held back and followed the Republican party line of standing by the judge while insisting Dr Ford be given a respectful, fair hearing.

The President previously had avoided naming Professor Ford or plainly casting doubt on her account.
