The woman who has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers has committed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday, her lawyers said Sunday.
"She has agreed to move forward with a hearing even though the Committee has refused to subpoena Mark Judge", who has been identified as a witness to the incident.
Kavanaugh's confirmation would solidify conservative control of the Supreme Court and advance Trump's goal of moving the high court and the broader federal judiciary to the right.
Wallace asked Graham if the Judiciary Committee Republicans, who are all male, wanted to bring in outside counsel to do the questioning because they feared "the optics" of them grilling Ford.
The lawyer for a woman who Brett Kavanaugh's accuser has said attended the 1980s party at which he allegedly molested her has told Senate Republican investigators that the woman doesn't recall such a gathering or know the Supreme Court nominee. "Meanwhile, she's coming forward and very bravely saying, 'I will tell my story, ' so I'm going to do everything I can to make sure she can tell her story free of intimidation, fear, and the kind of threats that she's already getting for even coming forward". Kavanaugh's team showed the New York Times his monthly calendar pages for 1982 - the year Ford said she believed the attack happened - and noted the lack of any party that resembled the one Ford has described.
The allegations in the New Yorker came only minutes before Grassley, released the original letter from Christine Blasey Ford detailing her allegations against Kavanaugh. Especially important: White evangelical Christians in large numbers were able to use Trump's promise to name judges friendly to their viewpoint as a rationale for playing down all the ways in which the now-president (to be charitable) fell short of their moral standards. Ford's lawyers also want to call on two trauma experts, the person said.
According to a YouGov poll conducted for CBS, more than half of Americans want an FBI investigation before a vote on Kavanaugh, but more than two thirds of Republicans want a vote within days.

Trump's outburst saw an outpouring of sympathy for Ford - and outrage at the president - as thousands of women, and men too, shared why they had kept silent after being assaulted, under the Twitter hashtag #WhyIDidntReport.
The magazine said it had not found eyewitnesses to confirm that Kavanaugh was at the party, though one former classmate remembered hearing about the incident from another, and independently corroborated numerous details offered by Ramirez. She tells the New Yorker she recalls other students telling her to kiss it. Ramirez says she pushed the person away, touching the penis in the process, and then saw Kavanaugh standing next to her, pulling his trousers up and laughing. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss private conversations.
With more than thirty-five years having gone by, one might understandably forgive Ms. Ford if she couldn't remember the identities of the other boys downstairs, particularly if they hadn't kept in touch over the decades.
