Brett Kavanaugh accuser offers to testify to Senate

Brett Kavanaugh accuser offers to testify to Senate

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 bad she would have reported it to law enforcement. After my first ten cases, the ache in my stomach would come like clockwork as I sat down to open a sexual assault file for the first time.

He said Kavanaugh's accuser should "have her say and let's see how it all works out, but I don't think you can delay it any longer".

Ford has not accepted the Senate Judiciary Committee's invitation to testify about how she was allegedly assaulted by Kavanaugh in high school.

Mr Trump said in a tweet that "if the attack on Dr Ford was as bad as she says", she would have pressed charges.

"I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!" he tweeted.

Kavanaugh's nomination has been thrown into doubt by Ford's allegations that he sexually assaulted her when they were teens.

Yesterday Ford, through her lawyers, offered to appear next week - after a days-long standoff with committee Chairman Sen.

As for Trump's FBI comment - referencing Ford's desire for the FBI to investigate her accusations before her hearing - there is no reason why the FBI would have been involved 36 years ago.

Nadal to miss Asian tournaments due to knee injury
Nadal's total points tally will drop to 7,660 over the coming weeks - 760 more than Federer and 1,215 more than Djokovic. Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the China Open and Shanghai Masters after injuring his knee during the recent US Open .

Now, Ford's willingness to negotiate to appear later next week sets up the most dramatic and politically significant she-said-he-said since Anita Hill testified at the reopened Senate hearings on Justice Clarence Thomas' nomination to the court.

The women declined Friday to answer questions about Ford, saying they were there to talk about Kavanaugh and how "we know the man, we know his heart". Ford told the Washington Post earlier this week that she did not tell her parents, or anyone else, about the alleged assault in its immediate aftermath-she was afraid to tell them she had been at a party where there had been underage drinking.

Judge Kavanaugh appeared to be on course to become a Supreme Court judge, ensuring the Republicans have a majority, but Dr Ford's allegations have disrupted the process.

In a recent interview, Ford claimed that Mark Judge, a close friend of Kavanaugh's, was an eye witness to the sexual assault. "He remains committed to providing a fair forum for both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh".

The timetable brought cries of protest from Democrats, who have called on the FBI to investigate the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from California, and to expand the number of witnesses who would be called beyond Ford and Kavanaugh. Judge has told the committee he does not recall the incident and does not want to speak publicly.

By refusing to call Mark Judge as a witness, and refusing to direct the FBI to investigate, Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the president are in lockstep.

"Someone who is lying does not ask the FBI to investigate their claims", she said. But Tuesday, she began insisting on an FBI investigation of her allegations and said other witnesses should also participate in a hearing.

Sara Fagen, another longtime friend who worked with Kavanaugh in the White House, told a story about how Kavanaugh helped her the day of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
