Sen. Grassley Sets Deadline for Kavanaugh Accuser to Respond to Testimony Request

Senator Susan Collins of Maine met with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh at her office last month

"Dear Professor Ford", actress Kelly McCreary begins the video.

"Even what she's done so far would impact my thinking, but not almost as much as if she sat there and I had a chance to question her", Bredesen said.

On Wednesday, after these contradictions were brought to her attention, Miranda deleted her post about hearing "about it in school" with a cryptic explanation. If in fact she received this letter in the summer, it should have been immediately forwarded to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in line with past practice as it conducts its background check of the nominee. Then she said she would appear, but not until the FBI completed an investigation.

The FBI has already conducted a background check on Kavanaugh and added Ford's letter to Kavanaugh's file.

Republicans are resisting all Democratic efforts to slow and perhaps block what once seemed a smooth path to confirmation that would promote the conservative appeals court judge by the October 1 opening of the Supreme Court's new term.

Prof Ford has been given until Friday to decide if she will testify.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to question both Kavanaugh and Ford on the issue.

Trump's oldest son posted a fake "sexual assault letter found by Dems", written in crayon, that says, "Hi Cindy, Will you be my girlfriend?"

Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa says an FBI investigation isn't needed. We want to thank you for publicly sharing your story of sexual violence. "The invitation for Monday still stands". Let's see where Republican Sens.

Ford was maintaining her anonymity at the time the posting went up on Saturday, and Democratic Sen. They also want more witnesses besides Kavanaugh and Ford, hoping to avoid what they said would turn into a "he-said-she-said" moment.

He pushed hard for Ford to take her chance at the committee hearing set for Monday, where Kavanaugh is likewise invited to explain his side of the story. "A simple denial is not the end of questioning".

Not only do the comments reveal open hostility towards Ford, Jentleson argued, they also bolster the complaint by many critics who say the entire process has been a bad-faith effort by Republicans. It can be open. John Kennedy, a member of the Judiciary panel from Louisiana. "That's been a good thing for all of us, I think".

"It's impossible to take this process seriously", Feinstein said. But he suggested Republicans will not bend from their offer of a hearing Monday.

Democrats have called on the Senate Judiciary Committee to postpone its vote until the allegations are investigated.

Several key Republican lawmakers yesterday indicated a willingness to move forward with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination, all but ensuring a vote next week despite the sexual assault allegation against him.

The risks of a public hearing starring the all-male lineup of Republicans on the committee could be high. They've given tremendous amounts of time. But that may be moot if Ford declines to appear. He is not a man that deserves this....

Through her attorneys, Ford left her attendance in doubt.

He called the allegation against Judge Kavanaugh "a drive-by shooting". An independent probe is one way to get past the "he said, she said". "It starts at age 18 and comes forward". Dianne Feinstein was still keeping a letter containing her allegations under wraps. "And it is not the woman's fault".

She alleged Mr Kavanaugh was "stumbling drunk" at the time.

"He's not happy, he's upset", Kennedy said.

Ford, a university professor from California, claims that a drunk Kavanaugh locked her in a bedroom and tried to pull her clothes off while covering her mouth to stop her from screaming during a party in 1982. She says she escaped when Judge jumped on the bed.
