Kavanaugh's accuser agrees to testify before Senate

Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill Sept. 5

That's because the Iowa Republican's tweet read like a direct message to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

A tentative agreement for a Thursday hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford has been reached, a source with knowledge of the discussions has told Fox News.

Trump contended that the fact Ford remained silent until now shows the incident probably was not "as bad as she says" - even if this runs counter to what experts say is the typical reaction of sexual assault victims afraid or embarrassed to report.

Judge Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations.

A final accord could bring to a close days of brinkmanship that have roiled Washington ahead of midterm elections and threatened to jeopardize Kavanaugh's confirmation to the court, even as some Republicans say the additional hearings may do little to change their support for him. The letter also requests that committee staff join a phone call Saturday afternoon to continue negotiations over Ford's appearance. "She should have her say". Ford accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her 36 years ago when the two were in high school. The GOP is facing enormous pressure from its base of conservative leaders and voters to swiftly approve Kavanaugh, who would become the second of Trump's nominees to sit on the nation's highest court, ahead of the November 6 election. You'll also recall that the letter from her therapist mistakenly claimed (according to the therapist) that they had incorrectly recorded Ford recounting being attacked by four boys. "And by the way, women are for that more than anyone would understand".

On Saturday, her lawyers said she agreed to tell her story before a Senate panel, but it is not known if it would be open to the public.

Ms Katz had called Mr Grassley's original deadline "arbitrary" and said its "sole goal is to bully Dr Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family". Grassley lamented in a tweet late Friday night that with all the deadline extensions, he felt like he was playing "2nd trombone in the judiciary orchestra", and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., was the conductor. The lawyers also said it is not clear who, from the Republican majority, will question Ford.

Kavanaugh had seemed to gain momentum among Republican senators this week, with growing numbers saying it was approaching time to vote and those who'd voiced concern about Ford's charges stopping short of expressing opposition to Kavanaugh.

It remains to be seen if Republicans either themselves or through an outside lawyer have the nerve to grill Ford about the attack on her and the lifetime of trauma it unleashed.

"We have to fight for him, not anxious about the other side", he said.

According to Politico, Ford's attorneys talked with Senate Judiciary Committee aides on Sunday where the two sides hashed out the details of Ford's appearance.

"Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a fine man, with an impeccable reputation, who is under assault by radical left wing politicians who don't want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay", Trump wrote.

After Grassley set a hearing for Monday, Democrats demanded a delay to allow time for the FBI to investigate Ford's claim.

"The imposition of aggressive and artificial deadlines regarding the date and conditions of any hearing has created tremendous and unwarranted anxiety and stress on Dr Ford", Katz wrote in an email to the committee.
