Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford receiving death threats

Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford receiving death threats

The assault purportedly took place in 1982 when Ms Blasey Ford was 15 and Mr Kavanaugh 17. Chuck Grassley says the FBI does not need to look into the sexual-assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because Republicans are conducting their own investigation.

Chuck Grassley (R-IA) offering Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford an opportunity to appear before the panel on Monday, Christian Right leaders fear her testimony could blow up the Kavanaugh nominations, delaying another candida until after the midterm election where the GOP faces the very real possibility of losing both chambers of Congress.

An attorney for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers, said Thursday that her appearing at a hearing on Monday to detail her claims is "not possible" but she could testify later in the week.

Ford has said she wants the FBI to investigate her claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980s. She did tell her therapist about the incident in 2012, but she did not name Kavanaugh, and the therapist's notes contradict Ford's current description of the 36-year-old alleged groping incident.

Ford has not been seen publicly for several days.

"As a result of these kind of threats, her family was forced to relocate out of their home. Not only does it disadvantage her, it victimizes her", Hirono said.

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, that he was setting a deadline of Friday at 10 a.m. for a decision from Ford on whether she will testify.

Miranda said staff from the Senate Judiciary Committee had reached out to her, something she was not expecting.

In the Senate, the issue of when and if Ford might testify has ignited a furor, especially among Democratic women.

California college professor Christine Blasey Ford wants the FBI to investigate her claim Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were teenagers, something Kavanaugh denies. Some Republicans have urged their colleagues to get past Ford's allegations and proceed with a vote.

"The rush to a hearing is unnecessary, and contrary to the Committee discovering the truth", Banks wrote.

On Wednesday, Senator Jeff Flake - who had previously said he would not decide his vote until hearing both testimonies - also called on Prof Ford to accept the Senate's invitation. Ford's lawyers have said their client wants to testify after the FBI investigates the allegations.

Ford and Kavanaugh have been invited to testify about the attack on Monday.

Demonstrators have congregated in a Senate office building to protest Republicans' handling of the sexual-assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. They also want more witnesses besides Kavanaugh and Ford, hoping to avoid what they said would turn into merely a "he-said-she-said" moment.

"Hi all, deleted this because it served its goal and I am now dealing with a slew of requests for interviews from The Wash Post, CNN, CBS News", she tweeted.

It remained unclear, though, whether Ms Ford would attend or if the hearing would occur without her.

Despite the demands by Ford's legal team and Senate Democrats for an FBI investigation, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and President Donald Trump have opposed holding an FBI investigation into the incident.
