Lawyer: Ford can testify next week if terms fair

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in before the Senate Judiciary Commi

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in before the Senate Judiciary Commi

Abandoning his previous restraint, President Donald Trump has challenged the credibility of the woman accusing his Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, declaring that if the alleged attack was so awful she would have reported it to law enforcement.

A U.S. Senate panel vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation was delayed after Ford's allegations came out last week.

"Physically, some survivors actually will have. what we call "body memories" re-triggered when they have to tell about the assault again".

Those who work closely with the President say he has privately voiced suspicion about the #MeToo movement and complained that decades-old allegations could ruin men's lives in an instant. But both had previously stated that if Ford's allegations are true they'd be disqualifying - and their votes are enough to sink Kavanaugh's bid for the high court. "I think everything's going to be just fine". By Wednesday night, she'd deleted her social media profiles. Those abysmally low numbers are heavily driven by women, who oppose confirmation by 20 points, 43 to 23.

However, Trump has rejected ordering Federal Bureau of Investigation involvement. "They've investigated about six times before, and it seems that they don't do that". "I did not do this back in high school or at any time".

"The most consequential decision I've made in my entire career is the decision not do something, and that was to not fill the vacancy after the death of Justice Scalia", McConnell said, referring the decision to hold up President Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court.

'She doesn't have a political bone in her body.

Specifically, Collins told a ME radio station that she believes in the Senate's responsibility to vet nominees for high offices like the Supreme Court position for which Kavanaugh has been nominated.

'Do I trust her? Yes.

But Grassley says that although Ford should have the chance to tell her story, he won't wait forever. 'It's a frightful thing she's carried for the last 30 years and what she's doing is very courageous.

'It needs good character, to be a decent human being.

Trump has often expressed support for Kavanaugh, saying Wednesday that "it's very hard for me to imagine" that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Ford.

That Ford revealed her story in couples therapy six years ago and that there apparently exists a psychologist's notes corroborating this makes it less likely she invented the charges to derail Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, though the federal judge's ascent to the nation's highest court was reportedly something she was anxious about.

"The woman should be given the benefit of the doubt and not be, you know, abused again by the system", former Vice President Joe Biden told NBC's "Today" show in comments broadcast Friday.

The source notes that it is not standard procedure for another witness to dictate who else should testify and "that's not precedent we are going to follow". She says she can relate to women who say they've been mistreated by men and understands why it might take years to come forward with such allegations.
