Accuser of Trump's Supreme Court pick seeks Federal Bureau of Investigation probe

There is a hearing scheduled for Monday although Ford has asked the FBI to investigate Kavanaugh before she testifies. "But I think politically speaking, the senators will do a very good job".

Democrats say they want the FBI to investigate Ford's claims. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to testify Monday.

The FBI could interview Ford, Kavanaugh and others about the allegation if Trump asked the bureau to reopen its background investigation.

Grassley's decision echoed the sentiment of Sen.

'I have no memory of this alleged incident, ' he wrote in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee sent via his attorney.

But Democrats also said yesterday they were planning to attend the hearing even if Ford did not show up.

Ford's allegations appear to be misdemeanors that would be beyond the statute of limitations under Maryland law, said Randolph Rice, a Baltimore-based attorney who specializes in sex crimes.

Judge Kavanaugh, 53, has called the allegation "completely false".

"I find that very, well frankly it makes me angry", Guerry said on ABC News' "The Briefing Room".

"Nor is it tasked with investigating a matter simply because the Committee deems it important".

Ford, 51, is a professor of psychology and a statistician at Palo Alto University who also teaches at Stanford.

"I strongly support Dr. Ford's call for an FBI investigation before a hearing is held", Schumer said. However, the professor has demanded a Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into her allegations before she testifies, changing her earlier offer to testify.

"I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as "PJ" who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post", Smyth said in his letter, CNN reported.

"She could do it privately if she prefers, or publicly if she prefers", McConnell said, adding, "Monday is her opportunity". Republicans have been careful to be seen as giving Ford a chance to be heard, mindful that outright dismissal of her accusation could hurt on Election Day. Aides plan follow-up sessions as needed to obtain additional information ahead of Monday's planned public hearing. Ford has said Judge witnessed the alleged assault.

Democrats have rejected the GOP process and are refusing to participate in any committee phone interviews.

In the Senate, the issue of whether, when and if Ford might testify has ignited a furor, especially among Democratic women.

The potential for backlash is likely why the volatile Trump, who customarily would lash out at Kavanaugh's accuser, was muted on Monday. "They have done now, supposedly, six background checks as Judge Kavanaugh has gone beautifully up a ladder". This would be as much in Kavanaugh's interest as hers, which is why it is surprising that Republicans are resisting her request for an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry. "Do the right thing for a change", Hirono said, at a Capitol Hill news conference. "Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and my terror about retaliation".

"I'd really want to see her".

Ford's lawyers say she has been subject to death threats as a result of her allegations against Kavanaugh.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll surveyed 2,196 adults online across the United States and has a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of 2 percentage points.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh looks on during his confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee to be Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Sept. 4, 2018 in Washington.

The accusation has threatened to complicate Kavanaugh's nomination, which must be approved first by the Senate Judiciary Committee and then by the full chamber, which is narrowly controlled by Republicans. "It can be closed, whatever Ms. Ford wants", said Sen.

Meanwhile Mr Trump has said he is not anxious about what his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is co-operating with the USA special counsel's probe into Russian election meddling, will tell prosecutors, as long as he is truthful.

"This incident did happen", the letter said. Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley had invited the woman-Dr. He does not want to risk allowing the Senate vote to lapse until after an election Republicans may lose.

Prof Ford's legal team has declined the Senate's offer to testify.

"We don't have any problem with Kavanaugh coming, the only problem we have with making it a fruitful hearing is to hear from both sides", he said.
