Kavanaugh's Sexual Assault Accuser Open to Testifying on Her Terms

The Latest: Ford's fellow alumnae sign letter supporting her

Only if the White House "demands it" will the FBI investigate the claim, Carlson said.

Beyond the Senate, Republicans are bracing for the impact of Monday's scheduled hearing and the political consequences of an unpredictable and likely emotional session that could expand a Senate matter into a defining moment for the party, especially if Grassley or other Republican men aggressively question Ford about her personal life and the alleged assault.

That now means that Ford is almost certain to tell her story publicly sometime next week.

Third, as long as Ford's counsel want to talk about regular, independent investigations, we should note that there is not a police organization in America that would entertain her allegation, in light of the lapse of time and the long-ago exhaustion of the statute of limitations.

Hirono's public ascent has also come amid health troubles, as she announced previous year that she had been diagnosed with kidney cancer.

Katz reiterated that Ford, now a psychology professor in California, has received death threats and for safety reasons has relocated her family. Her email has been hacked, and she has been impersonated online.

Still Flake, who said previously that "We can't vote until we hear more", and was one of the first Republicans to call for the hearing's delay, is also among those imploring Ford to testify Monday.

It was really cool meeting him. "Even when I was a little kid, Cheaper By the Dozen , I just like, grew up being a fan". He wasn't badly hurt: he just scraped his knee and drew some blood, as photos he posted to his Instagram confirm.

Ford's email agreeing to testify before the Senate next week came as Democrats accused the GOP of attempting to "railroad" Ford by rushing ahead with a hearing without a full FBI investigation. While no sexual assault survivor should be subjected to such an ordeal, Dr. Ford wants to cooperate with the Committee and with law enforcement officials.

The Justice Department has said the Federal Bureau of Investigation sent Ford's initial letter making the allegation against Kavanaugh to the White House and considers its role in the matter complete. Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, on Wednesday also offered to send his staff to Ford, "at a time and place convenient to her".

All of this aside, Sen.

"I have serious reservations regarding the questionable timing and handling of this last-minute allegation", Hyde-Smith said in a statement. It was quiet. I assured her that her anonymity and her privacy - privacy is absolutely paramount to all of my constituents, but certainly in cases of sexual assault.

"I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone". In a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats, Grassley said the Senate can't order another one.

Ford's lawyers had said on Tuesday she would testify before the committee only if the FBI first investigated her allegation. In earlier media interviews, Banks had said Ford would be willing to testify. Ford was later asked to submit prepared testimony and a biography before Friday if she plans to attend the hearing. They say she can testify in a private session if she wishes.

"I have been thorough in examining Judge Kavanaugh's record", McCaskill said in a statement released by her office.
