Read the Letter From Christine Blasey Ford Requesting an FBI Investigation

Patti Davis the daughter of President Ronald Reagan

Thank you for signing up for the Sunrise Newsletter. "What about other witnesses like Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge?".

"What we're saying is there should be an investigation because that's the right thing to do", Lisa Banks, Ford's attorney, told the CNN host Anderson Cooper.

"One of the political costs of failing to confirm Brett Kavanaugh is likely the loss of the United States Senate", warned Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed, who added, "If Republicans were to fail to defend and confirm such an obviously and eminently qualified and decent nominee then it will be very hard to motivate and energize faith-based and conservative voters in November". "If they wanted to be, I would certainly do that".

Senate Democrats, led by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, have said the hearing should not take until the Federal Bureau of Investigation has had a chance to thoroughly investigate the matter. "If she shows up that would be wonderful". "I won't vote for a Democrat, but I won't vote for a Republican, either", said this individual.

Hill, whose credibility and reputation were on trial during the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas, had urged the Senate to establish a protocol to assess sexual misconduct claims that emerge during the confirmation process. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) that Kavanaugh "physically pushed" and "tried to disrobe" her while they were high school students.

Mr Trump said the judge "is not a man that deserves this".

The lawyers wrote that Ford, who is now a college professor in California, wants to cooperate with the committee.

The letter confirmed reports that Ford was targeted with death threats after she came forward with her allegations against Kavanaugh. I mean, the question over whether the FBI will conduct an investigation, won't conduct an investigation, should conduct an investigation - - any movement on that?

Grassley also couldn't answer whether each senator will get one or two rounds of questions.

But that vote is now in question; the committee is already set to hold another hearing on Monday. "This is a situation that is stacked".

The explosive assault claim makes the Supreme Court the latest United States institution to be rocked by fallout from the year-old #MeToo movement exposing sexual misconduct. I hope committee Republicans avoid this pitfall.

Republicans are suggesting that Ford will have one chance to testify, and one chance only.

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-IA, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had announced a hearing for next Monday to air the testimony of Ford and Kavanaugh regarding the alleged assault. Kavanaugh is scheduled to appear again before the Senate Judiciary Committee next Monday following allegations that have endangered his appointment to the Supreme Court.

Flake said he's hopeful Ford will accept the committee's invitation and speak at the hearing.

The furious jockeying over Ford's testimony underscores the political potency so close to an election that will decide control of the House and the Senate, not to mention the confirmation of a conservative justice likely to serve on the high court for decades.

Grassley suggested the hearing could be called off if Ford declines to appear.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing for Monday and had invited Kavanaugh and Ford to testify.

Only 51 votes are needed to confirm a Supreme Court nominee, and Republicans now hold exactly that many seats in the Senate. However, the public did not know Ford was Kavanaugh's accuser until she came forward in an interview with the Washington Post that was published on Sunday.
