Willing to testify on new date: Woman accusing Trump's SC nominee

Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies during the second day of his Senate confirmation hearing earlier this month

A Fox News correspondent believes President Donald Trump may have blown up Brett Kavanaugh's chances for confirmation by attacking a woman who accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault.

Democratic senators, pointing to the highly-charged Anita Hill hearings in October 1991, have defended Ford's request to have the Federal Bureau of Investigation do its own probe before she testifies.

Trump's tweet marked a sharp break from the days after the accusation first surfaced, during which he refrained from attacking Christine Blasey Ford, a professor in California, and said she deserved to be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Facts don't matter. I go through this with them every single day in D.C.", Trump said.

Before the president's tweets Friday, counselor to the president, Kellyanne Conway told reporters there was "no reason" to attack Ford.

Ford's lawyers said her testimony Monday "is not possible and the committee's insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event".

Asking Kavanaugh to go first is "not doable", according to the source, noting he would need to respond to any new accusation that comes up at the hearing. "I think it's, a, very unfair thing what's going". Hirono said the threats, brought on by her outing, constitute being labeled as "intimidation of a witness".

Ford has been invited to testify before the Judiciary Committee this Monday.

Ford said that Kavanaugh and his male friend, who were reportedly drunk, laughed.




"Any time a sexual assault survivor has to retell her story in a context, even if it's a small context, .it can be re-traumatizing having to focus on the details again". Scared and alone on the street with nothing in her pockets, Fagen said she ran into Kavanaugh, who made sure she got home safely.

For Republicans dealing with the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, his hearing is becoming increasingly complex to navigate.

If two Republicans vote against Mr Kavanaugh, his nomination could fail.

"So, moving beyond the Supreme Court, here's our challenge for the future: to do our jobs, wait out the obstruction, confirm more quality nominees to the judiciary", he said.

The president has indicated he wants Ford to testify, saying, "I really want to see her, to see what she has to say".

"The woman should be given the benefit of the doubt and not be, you know, abused again by the system", former Vice President Joe Biden told NBC's "Today" show in comments broadcast Friday.

Senate Republicans agreed nearly immediately after Ford's name became public that her story should be heard.

That Ford revealed her story in couples therapy six years ago and that there apparently exists a psychologist's notes corroborating this makes it less likely she invented the charges to derail Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, though the federal judge's ascent to the nation's highest court was reportedly something she was anxious about.

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 Hill raised allegations against Thomas.
