Kavanaugh accuser wants FBI investigation before she will testify -lawyer

Attorneys Debra Katz and Lisa Banks wrote in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on Tuesday that the threats have forced Blasey and her family to move from their home.

Hill's comments came a day after lawyers for Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, said she wants the FBI to investigate her allegation before she testifies at a Judiciary Committee hearing scheduled for Monday.

"It kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?"

Note: The Justice Department says the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh "does not involve any potential federal crime" for the FBI to investigate.

Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein is facing harsh criticism from her campaign opponent, state Sen.

Law students and a professor preparing for class at Roger Williams University School of Law on Wednesday afternoon shared their reactions to the tumultuous confirmation process of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. In response to my invitation, however, you wrote yesterday that "an FBI investigation of the incident should be the first step in addressing her allegations".


Ford missed a 10 a.m. deadline this morning to submit her prepared testimony and biography to the Senate Judiciary Committee for a Monday hearing. In a statement Monday, he said, "I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone".

"I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity".

"This is not a man that deserves this", Trump said. Dr. Blasey Ford's experience is all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton. "Not only does it disadvantage her, it victimizes her", Hirono said. John Cornyn (R-TX), as questions seemed to be raised about whether a politically explosive hearing would take place next Monday as scheduled. 24 in which both Kavanaugh and Ford are invited to testify.

Ford also told the Post that the assault ended when Judge jumped on top of her and Kavanaugh, knocking them off the bed and allowing her to flee to the bathroom. "What about other witnesses like Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge?".

However, Ford believes, as do Democrats like Hillary Clinton, that an FBI investigation is a necessary precursor to her appearance (even as Fox News reports that won't happen, because this is a "political" matter).

Before the sexual assault allegations, they argued the process should be delayed because of unfilled records requests, past delays because of elections, and the legal issues surrounding President Donald Trump.
