The Political Junkie: Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh, Declassified FBI Documents, And More

Debra Katz, one of Ford's attorneys, said in Thursday's email that she wanted to set up a call later that day to discuss conditions for Ford's testimony.

Through her lawyers, Ford said she wouldn't speak to the committee until the FBI investigates the incident, which allegedly occurred while Ford and Kavanaugh were in high school. They reiterated their invitation for her to testify on Monday, and that "we can have this session open or closed to the public depending on what Dr. Ford prefers".

Katz continued: "Dr. Ford has asked me to let you know that she appreciates the various options you have suggested".

In a letter to Prof Ford's legal team, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said "it is not the FBI's role to investigate a matter such as this".

Senator Lindsey Graham said "it is imperative the Judiciary Committee move forward on the Kavanaugh nomination and a committee vote be taken as soon as possible".

Christine Blasey Ford came out publicly as the woman who made the allegations in a September 16 story in The Washington Post.

"I question whether this will be significant 10 days from now because it does look like she isn't going to testify", Mr. Luntz told Fox's Laura Ingraham. That response has contributed to him continuing to say Ford should come forward with her story. Christine Blasey Ford was a student at the Holton Arms School, a Maryland all-girls school, in the early 1980s. Democrats, who have been opposing Kavanaugh's confirmation from before Dr Ford's allegation surfaced, have demanded the Federal Bureau of Investigation step in; Republicans have been staunchly opposed.

"What is happening with the Judiciary Committee, really, I would call it a railroad job", Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) told reporters at a noontime press conference. After scathing books from both his inner circle (Omarosa Manigault Newman's Unhinged) and some less close to him (Bob Woodward's Fury) were released, his Supreme Court nominee came under fire.

It's a big call to say the Ligue 1 giants are better off without Neymar, though Barton does raise some valid arguments. At PSG, though, those same shortcomings stand out a mile, because everyone looks to Neymar to make the difference.

Late Thursday afternoon, graduates of the all girls Holton-Arms School delivered a letter of support for Ford signed by more than 1,000 alumnae to the congressional office of West Virginia Republican Sen.

Speaking at the same event, Sen. She called on the FBI to investigate the assault allegation "and all the threats she's undergoing". "Who is not asking the FBI to investigate these claims?" Is that the reaction of an innocent person?

Professor Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party outside Washington when they were in high school.

Democrats have argued that it would be too traumatic for Ms. Blasey Ford to testify before the committee, although Chairman Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, has offered to have her interviewed in a private setting in California.

After the call, Taylor Foy, a Grassley spokesman, said the senator "will consult with his colleagues on the committee".

Senate Republicans have been clamoring to get Ford in front of the Judiciary Committee before lawmakers vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court next week. The picture was stamped with the words "Judge Kavanaughs sexual assault letter found by Dems".
