That is precisely what the Senate is doing.' OK, maybe, but have you seen who's on the Senate Judiciary Committee?

Trump told Hannity on Thursday night that the Senate Judiciary Committee should move swiftly to finish vetting Kavanaugh.

In addition to security, expected to be provided by Capitol Police, Ford has asked for press coverage of her testimony to be the same as for Kavanaugh.

And on Thursday's episode of "The Late Show", Stephen Colbert had some mean things to say about how badly the Republican-controlled Senate has been at handling the sexual assault allegation leveled at Kavanauh by Christine Blasey Ford.

"If she doesn't want to participate and tell her story, there's no reason for us to delay", Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican in the chamber, told CNN. Those conditions had cast strong doubts on her willingness to appear, and it became unclear whether Republicans would even hold the hearing. For example, an ABC producer found the alumnae page from Christine Blasey Ford's prep school and begged for leads on Kavanaugh, hoping to out the truth. Holton Arms is the Maryland all-girls school that Christine Blasey Ford attended in the early 1980s.

Shortly thereafter, Trump asked why Ford didn't "call the Federal Bureau of Investigation 36 years ago?"

Both have agreed to testify before a Senate committee. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said.

Brett Kavanaugh's accuser is allegedly at fault for not coming forward sooner, according to Donald Trump.

Speaking at the same event, Sen. They would argue that they'd offered Ford several options for describing her accusation, but that she'd snubbed them. Ford, through her attorneys, has said she cannot appear Monday but could later in the week.

The psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California said she was being treated for what she said had been the long-term effects of the incident.

"Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI investigate these claims".

Sara Fagen, another longtime friend who worked with Kavanaugh in the White House, told a story about how Kavanaugh helped her the day of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Is that the reaction of an innocent person?

After going through psychotherapy, Ford said, she now understands the incident as a trauma that has had lasting impact on her life.

Dozens of female colleagues, classmates and friends of Brett Kavanaugh rallied in support of the embattled Supreme Court nominee on Friday, saying they don't believe the sexual assault allegation against him.

The president's previous restraint this week, even as he repeatedly defended Kavanaugh and criticized Democrats, surprised many Republicans determined to salvage the nomination.

After Grassley rebuffed the request for an FBI investigation and President Donald Trump downplayed the notion, Ford's attorney Lisa Banks said on Wednesday that "the rush to a hearing is unnecessary, and contrary to the committee discovering the truth". "That's what I call hijacking the regular committee process to accommodate political interests". Events of the last few days have made it clear that the president, and the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, are not going to let a woman's allegation of sexual assault, and a search for the truth, derail the train.

The decision is somewhat surprising, given the NFL's insistence on using the hit as an example of how not to tackle a quarterback. I expect the Packers to win the special teams battle, but also give up some points to the Redskins' defense.
