Christine Blasey Fords testimony sure to be a ‘circus’

Christine Blasey Fords testimony sure to be a ‘circus’”

An unnamed male friend told the New York Times that after the summer of the alleged attack, Ford, then known as Chrissy Blasey, "fell off the face of the earth socially". Politico reported that Ford asked to have Kavanaugh testify first, and does not want him in the room when she testifies.

Eshoo relayed the accusation to Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, a letter requesting anonymity in July.

"Thank you for the invitation to appear before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary on Monday, September 24", he wrote in a letter to the committee. Kavanaugh has agreed to go.

The email also makes notes of "death threats" and Ford an her family being "forced out of their home", and implied her "safety" was one of the conditions for her appearing in on Capitol Hill.

The tweet was Trump's strongest indication of support for Brett Kavanaugh yet, after the president had spent much of the week vowing he would listen respectfully to Ford's allegations.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge.

Judge Kavanaugh has issued a fresh rebuttal of the allegation.

Negotiations have been ongoing on whether Ford will testify next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee. President Trump has said that the FBI does not do investigations into allegations like those raised by Dr Ford.

"'I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents", added the president who famously boasted in an Access Hollywood tape, published shortly before being election, that he was so famous he could grab women by "the p**sy" with impunity.

'I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!'

The Monday hearing was set to discuss, under oath, Ford's accusation that more than 35 years ago, a 17-year-old Kavanaugh had pulled her into a room at a high school party with another teenager and groped her.

Trump tweeted Friday that Kavanaugh has an "impeccable reputation" and that Democrats "don't want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay".

"Since the moment I first heard the allegation", he said in a statement on Thursday, "I have categorically and unequivocally denied it".

Negotiations continue over whether Ford will testify next week. Democrats have seized on the development as justification to delay the high-stakes nomination and say it's being rushed.

Interested in Supreme Court?

Conway told CNN on Friday, "Let's not conflate the larger #MeToo movement with whatever did nor did not happen in the summer of 1982". She reportedly mentioned the alleged attack to no one until years later, in counseling. Those who spoke to the Times about Ford in her adult life described her as "a friendly but kind of geeky scientist", "very meticulous with data", and "someone taken very seriously".

The committee's Republican chairman, Senator Chuck Grassley, gave Ford until 10 a.m. (1400 GMT) on Friday to submit prepared testimony if she planned to appear on Monday.

Christine Blasey Ford may testify against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after all.

Emails obtained by ABC News between Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's staff and Ford's legal team show that Republican staffers reached out the day after Ford's identity was made public and offered to have her testify later that same week or the following Monday at an upcoming hearing on the Supreme Court nominee.
