GOP Sen. Kennedy: Kavanaugh Accuser, Attorney 'Keep Moving the Goalposts' on Testimony

"In the meantime, my staff would still welcome the opportunity to speak with Dr. Ford at a time and place convenient to her".

"I think it would be unwise and exquisitely unfair to Judge Kavanaugh, for him to answer allegations lobbed in the public domain, through an interview in the Washington Post, that is not the appropriate way to do it", he said. I know how honest he is.

She says he pinned her to a bed and clamped his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream.

Republicans have largely stood by Mr Kavanaugh's denials. He's an incredible intellect.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that there is no need for Federal Bureau of Investigation involvement in the scandal threatening to derail his pick for a coveted place on the US Supreme Court.

Patrick J. Smyth sent a letter to Republican Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley and top Democrat Dianne Feinstein in which he denied seeing any "improper conduct" by Kavanaugh, a classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, according to CNN, which obtained a copy of the letter. But lawyers for Ford say that she wants an FBI investigation of her allegation in advance of a Judiciary Committee hearing set for Monday.

"We believe Dr. Blasey Ford", they wrote. "It would be the perception they are mistreating this woman, who might be a victim, unfairly", he said.

Fellow Republican Susan Collins of ME said she hoped Prof Ford would "reconsider and testify" on Monday. Only if the White House "demands it" will the FBI investigate the claim, Carlson said.

On Wednesday, Grassley released a statement saying, "Nothing the FBI [Federal Bureau of Investigation] or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr. Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay".

While Ford's lawyers and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to testify Monday. But, he said he hopes Ford will appear at the hearing. She has published several books and more than 65 peer-reviewed journal articles.

Since she reluctantly went public, her e-mail has been hacked and she has faced a barrage of harassment including death threats.

"I think she felt morally compelled to come forward, which is very much in line with what I know of her", said Adler.

It turns out that Christine Blasey Ford actually isn't "willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth", after all.

And Ford's lawyer told NPR this week that the party occurred in the summertime.

"I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone", Kavanaugh said on Monday. "Otherwise, there are these very serious allegations hanging over the head of a nominee who has emphatically denied them", she said on radio WVOM in Bangor.

But for Flavio DaCosta, 24, also a third-year law student at RWU, Ford's accusation alone, without proof, isn't enough to disqualify Kavanaugh from serving on the Supreme Court.

She said she contacted friends, who contacted more friends, and they had 65 signatures by the next morning. "This all requires a great deal of integrity".

"Requiring an FBI investigation of a 36-year-old allegation (without specific references to time or location) before Professor Ford will appear before the Judiciary Committee is not about finding the truth, but delaying the process till after the midterm elections", Sen.
