President Trump Goes After Christine Blasey Ford

Wrestling for advantage Democratic and Republican senators argued Tuesday over who could should or would testify at next Monday's hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the woman who accuses him of a sexual assault when they were

Abandoning his previous restraint, President Donald Trump has challenged the credibility of the woman accusing his Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, declaring that if the alleged attack was so awful she would have reported it to law enforcement.

Trump's change of strategy comes as Ford's reps have begun to negotiate terms of her appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

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 law professor Anita Hill raised allegations of sexual harassment against Judge Clarence Thomas in 1991. You've watched the fight, you've watched the tactics, but here's what I want to tell you: "In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court", McConnell said.

While Ford has been the target of consistent attacks from Trump's base since coming forward with sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, this morning marked a turning point in Trump's strategy.

Both she and Kavanaugh say they have received death threats in the wake of her allegations.

She continued: "She wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety".

"A hearing on Monday is not possible and the Committee's insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event", Katz added. The White House. Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI investigate these claims. They would argue that they'd offered Ford several options for describing her accusation, but that she'd snubbed them.

"The radical left lawyers want the Federal Bureau of Investigation to get involved NOW", he continued. "Look at it. The angrier they get, the better we're doing".

Ford's attorney said Ford would like to testify first, but that might be complicated because Kavanaugh has already agreed to Monday's (Tuesday NZT) scheduled hearing. It has also bloomed into a broader clash over whether women alleging abuse are taken seriously by men and how both political parties address such claims with the advent of the #MeToo movement - a theme that could echo in this November's elections for control of Congress.

Thousands spontaneously began chanting Kavanaugh's name before Trump could mention it himself.

US Capitol Police said 56 protesters were arrested in Senate office buildings during demonstrations against Kavanaugh on Thursday. But that served to galvanize GOP lawmakers around Kavanaugh, who vehemently denies Ford's allegations, all but ensuring his likely confirmation.

A day earlier, alumni from Ford's high school, Holton-Arms, held a press conference with Sens.

Prosecutors know that one of the most common ways a witness tries to avoid testifying against family or friends is by saying "I don't remember". "I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities", Feinstein said.

"That being said, let her have her say and let's see how it all works out".

Democrats oppose Mr Kavanaugh's nomination and have called for the FBI to launch an investigation.

Even moderate Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said it would be "unfair" to Kavanaugh if Ford decides to not appear, and others were urging leaders to proceed quickly to a vote.

One of the four has yet to be publicly identified.
