NYT: Kavanaugh Prosecutor says she is ready to testify

New York Times: Kavanaugh Prosecutor told legal Affairs Committee, she is ready to testify next week, if certain conditions are met. Mike Emanuel reports on the Capitol Hill.

Christine Ford, California professor accused the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that she was “ready to testify next week” — apparently your bid for the FBI to fall for the first time you start a new request.

According to an E-Mail from her lawyer, Debra Katz, and the first that would appear by The New York Times, Ford, as long as senators “conditions are fair and ensure your safety.”

“As you know, the murder has received threats that were reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family were forced from their homes,” the E-Mail. “You want to testify, provided that we can agree to, the terms and conditions are fair and ensure your safety.”

Senate Republicans Ford had invited the testimony at a hearing on Monday and gave her a Friday deadline to indicate whether they would participate.

A Monday hearing, still seems unlikely, but.

In the letter Thursday, Ford’s attorney wrote that it is “not possible” for Ford testimony on Monday. She added that “the Committee insist that it occurs, then it is arbitrary, in any case.”

Late Tuesday, Ford’s lawyers strongly recommended you to testify, would only, when the FBI led to the first time a “comprehensive investigation.”


The Senate judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, pushed back violently, that the desire not to write in a letter that it would investigate the FBI’s “role, a thing like this,” and that the Agency had already reviewed the allegations and added that his background check of Kavanaugh.

Ford’s openness to the testimony threatened to, once again, back to Kavanaugh’s confirmation process overturning. Senate Republicans had said that if Ford stuck to their obvious refusal to testifiy, she would moved forward with a vote on Kavanaugh on Wednesday. The vote is now in doubt.

Meanwhile, tensions on Kavanaugh’s nomination on Thursday on Capitol Hill , many protesters were arrested outside Grassley’s office in the Hart Senate Office building.

The images that showed on social media, several protesters have lunch in Grassley’s office as an assistant took notes of their complaints.

Ford, who has acknowledged that she could not was remember some of the details from the alleged sexual assault incident, decades ago, under pressure, to make your allegations against Kavanaugh under oath.

Fox News has learned that Kavanaugh spoke with the Republican Committee staff under oath at the beginning of this week and the allegations of a ride. Democratic judiciary Committee members and staff refused to this closed-door process.

The California professor said, you only hate to us, and did so only because their hand was forced by the media. You wrote a letter, in her allegations in July, the sen Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., but not to mention Feinstein, other senators, or to Federal investigators until last week.

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said she was motivated by a desire to protect Ford’s identity, but the Republicans said that Feinstein might have mentioned the allegations without mentioning the Ford. Feinstein, according to a scathing letter from Grassley to top Democrats in this week, actually endangers Ford’s privacy by waiting so long, and with the information about your letter leaks to the media last week.
