Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week.

Ford’s lawyers, Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, informed the Senate Judiciary Committee of her decision Saturday afternoon just prior to the 2:30 p.m. deadline set by Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).

“Dr. Ford accepts the Committee’s request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week,” the attorneys said.

“Although many of the aspects you provided via email…are fundamentally inconsistent with the Committee’s promise of a fair, impartial investigation into her allegations, and we are disappointed with the leaks and the bullying that have tainted the process, we are hopeful that we can reach agreement on details,” they went on to say.

The letter did not spell out the conditions Ford will agree to testify under, such as when and where.

Ford’s agreement comes one day after Grassley again extended the deadline he gave Ford to decide whether or not she would testify to his committee and explain her allegations in detail.

The development comes after Ford’s attorneys signaled at the beginning of the week that she was willing to testify before the committee. However, it later appeared that she might not when her attorneys squabbled with Grassley’s committee over details, such as when she would testify, where she would offer her testimony, who would ask her questions, and in what order she would testify. She originally demanded that Kavanaugh testify first.

“This Committee has been extremely accommodating to your client. We want to hear Dr. Ford’s testimony and are prepared to accommodate many of your demands, including further delaying a hearing that is currently scheduled for Monday. We are unwilling to accommodate your unreasonable demands. Outside counsel may not dictate the terms under which Committee business will be conducted,” the committee’s GOP majority said Friday.

Kavanaugh vehemently denies the allegations.

      The only reason that they are being so accommodating is that we don’t want to hear any whining about it being unfair in some way.ms

      @coachpan. You got that right. Will the Republicans EVER grow a pair and tell the Dems to go take a flying f##k at a rolling doughnut? Why do they always fold every freakin’ time these ass clowns pull these stunts? This comes to mind – The Reps are famous for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory! Idiots.

        ERIC M. THE REPUBLICANS—-AT LEAST A FEW OF THEM DO HAVE BALLS. BUT REMEMBER SON, THINGS MOVE THROUGH COURTS AT A SNAILS PACE. RIGHT NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO GET JUDGE KAVANAUGH INTO THE SUPREME COURT. WHEN THAT’S FINISHED TRUMP CAN DEAL WITH THE FISA DOCUMENETS AND ITS AUTHORS. TRUMP HAS ALLLLL THE TIME IN THE WORLD ‘CAUSE HE KNOWS RIGHT IS ON HIS SIDE. THE DIM-DEMS COULDN’T FIND ANY SIGN OF COLLUSION WITH RUSSIA, SO THEY PUT THEIR DICKS ON THE LINE AND CONCOCTED THE FISA COURT SNOOKERING. AND THE STEELE DOSSIER WAS PART OF THAT, IN THEIR SUPREME HOPE THAT THEY’D EVENTUALLY UNCOVER SOMETHING, AND IN THE MEAN TIME MUDDY THE WATERS TO KEEP THEGULLIBLE PUBLIC GUESSING. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU WATCH THE BLOGS ON YOUTUBE. BUT TRY QANON, GEORGE WEBB, REPORT X22. THEN THE SCALES WILL REMOVED FROM THINE EYES. I TOO WAS IMPATIENT, BUT NOW I KNOW HOW ALL OF THIS WILL COME DOWN. I’LL BET A BODY PART THAT THIS WOMAN WILL BE A NO-SHOW. THE REASON, SHE’S DONE STUDIES ON A DRUG WHICH WHEN TAKEN WITH THE RIGHT STUFF WILL INDUCE AN ABORTION. AND THE SALES WILL PROBABLY BE ASTRONOMICAL. REMEMBER KAVANAUGH’S REFERENCE TO THE “ABORTION PILL”! KEEP TH FAITH, LADDIE

          Yes! Follow QAnon! Also, follow Seething Frog on YouTube. He’s a former prosecutor. Get on Twitter and follow LOTS of conservatives. This is the only way you will ever understand and know the real news. Everything on TV is fake except for Tucker and Hannity, but even they have their hands tied. Trust Trump and Q team’s plan.

        they fold because they have balls or fortitude. still living with political correctness which is truly a crock. Next time she has to testify, she will get some sort of disease and then it will be postponed…AGAIN. Those freakin libturds are only standing in the way till after this half baked midterm erection…yes, erection because every one is going to have a hard on. When will the libturds wake the hell up and realize that the “leaders” are only looking out for themselves and don’t give a rats behind about anyone else. They are wasting lots of money that the moochers wont get and then they will starve.

    This whole thing is nothing but a ploy to delay and damage his reputation.. For someone who can’t remember when where and naming people who say that didn’t happen and and so many coming forward defending his integrity and character..She is NOT creditable.. This is the Democrats and her doing what ever they can to botch the confirmation of him.. These Democrats are evil and America cannot let them take over.. We will be living in hell.

    • Annabel

      September 23, 2018 at 12:46 am

      Doris agreed. Just take a look at Ricki Seidman who has been “advising” her since JULY!
      Just google this woman. She worked for Anita Hill against Judge Thomas. THIS WAS ALL
      PLANNED BY THE DEMS IN JULY to delay, delay and hopefully for them dismiss the appointment
      of the next SC appointment. How ANYONE could vote for these despicable leftists I do not
      know. VOTE the DEMS OUT. Time to change affiliation is by Oct. 9, 2018. Independents

      I agree with you wholeheartedly! We cannot keep backing down from this confirmation. Just vote and let her chips fall where they may, she is being totally dishonest and her attorneys are “playing” the Committee with all that demanding crap. If she truly wants her story told then stop playing games and act like it, after all YOU are the accuser, this is not a courtroom nor is it a trial.

      I sure agree! I’m not one to use ptofanity, but I could sure let herrip on this subject!!! This CHARADE is and will be a blight on the American social justice system AND the Judicial Committee if it acquiesces to any further of Ford’s (blank, blank, blank) outlandish ‘demands)! The Committee should have told Ford et Al at the outset of this debacle! I too, hope they grow some and DO IT as the taxpayers and VOTERS want them to do. I think they are going to be sorry if they let her get away with this Bull Shit ( there, I said it )!!!

    September 23, 2018 at 12:37 am

    Man!!! The republicans are weak little woosies. This is without a doubt a Democrat ploy to delay the vote till after the elections. My only hopes are 1) this ends quickly and a vote takes place immediately 2) if this drags on ( and it will) republicans and constitutional believe if Americans vote to keep and gain seats in the house. The swap will be dealt with afterwards..big time.

    These ass wipe Republicans that are kowtowing to this sleaze bag are pathetic. They are just as bad as the Democrats that are against Trump. They are the ones that Trump speaks of when he says Clean The Swamp. This is a horrible injustice against Judge Kavanaugh to have to go through this. This man has impeccable credentials and has never in his career dealt with this type of charade against him. If this womans claim had any validity to it why in the world has she waited 36 years to bring this to the attention of the public. Why didn’t she bring it to her parents attention? Why didn’t she bring it to the authorities attention? I’ll tell you why because she’s lying.

    Once again the Republicans show how weak and afraid they are of being accused of being politically incorrect, They should not have agreed to give anymore time. They already extended the deadline 4,5,6 times. That makes you look like a snowflake. They need to take a lesson from the president and just do it and not worry about what is said. They are going to pick an argument and cry no matter what so “just do it” And then don’t forget to have the Judge file law suit for slander and defamation……..

    Shw wants Kavanaugh to testify to what???? He said it never happened….that should take all of two seconds. Why is it the accuser gets to set the tone of where and when since she cannot remember where or when this happened. Enough…already. If the democrats continue to find reasons for every move the republican party makes…think they will be in for a rude awakening with all their past coming to bite them in their behinds. People in glass houses Diane…shouldn’t throw stones….the same goes for a number of others in the democratic party.

    All good Americans should write to Senator Grassley. And explain to him we’ve had enough of this dog and Pont show . If this woman has something legitimate to say she should’ve come out and said it . This was brought out and she said she’d tell the committee what had taken place . But she stalls and stalls and stalls this is a political ploy that’s all it is . She’s afraid to actually speak before the committee because lying under oath is perjury whether you’re talking in court or to the Congress . She’s gonna come up with a reason after reason to not put herself in the position of going to jail . If she’s really been assaulted she would want the person responsible to be taken care of Juanita Brodrick she still is trying to get her voice heard. She was actually assaulted and she has not forgot any aspect of it and she wants to be heard where is this for person keeps putting it off and coming up with reasons . My favorite is she’s afraid to fly that’s a bunch of crap . Time for the Americans to tell Congress to either crap or get off the pot.

    So tired of the pandering to that woman. How much $$$ has she cost the American taxpayer. If she had come forward in July and she actually had a case, the hearings would have stopped. Now we all pay for her fake indecision so the Dems can delay a vote and frankly as each day passes, I believe this “story” may be the fiction of the decade. As for the “leaders” in the Republican party, y’all have been taken again by the Dems antics-get a spine.

    What a crock! It’s all about her isn’t it, nothing about the man she’s accused at the last minute of a heinous crime. I’ve come to the conclusion that I no more believe her than I can fly to the moon. The Democrats want us to believe her without any reservation at all. What about equal justice under the law? I pray it’s in open session, I hope they don’t do this behind closed doors. The world needs to see what kind of woman does this to a man just to keep him from being a Justice. It sure didn’t bother her for him to become a Distrixt Judge. I’m a Christian but this has really struck a nerve with me. I don’t see how a people like the Democrats can look at themselves in the Murrow each morning for the way they are doing our government. They hate Trump just because he won and they’ve said from the beginning that they’ll do anything to stop this nominee. It’s sad and shameful. Not one of them acting like they are should consider themselves Christians. True children of God just don’t act this way. In my opinion it’s all about abortion, plain and simple. Shameful!

    The Senate has rules to work by that have been in existence for a long time. The accusation about 2 teenagers 36 years ago allegedly horse playing at a party that the complainant can’t remember where when or who was there which is understandable. I myself have tried to think of things I did at that approximate age and even considering some to be maybe rough housing I can not and I have tried to remember and I can’t do it! That is a long time ago and as kids I am sure I did a lot of crazy things while fooling around with both boys and girls all in fun. So I just look at how Senator Feinstein produced this information from doctor of education in the state of California and all the attorneys involved and their demands plus the Democrats saying from the beginning they would not accept whomever President Trump put up to replace Justice Kennedy and not being the smartest person around but smart enough to realize this whole Democratic ploy is to do just what they said they would do. So to me this is just a liberal democratic farce which may ruin 2 peoples lives which unfortunately they do not care about only their power to make it happen. This is a disgrace and I do not agree that the complainant should be heard but since the committee chairman said he would allow it just do it under the rules in place. Do not allow these liberal radical attorneys for california (which says it all) dictate the process. Do it by the senate rules or just move on as the rules dictate.

    Bottom line is she has no proof and the burden of proof is on her. The left has cried wolf so many times they are no longer credible. This is simply a ploy to prevent Kavanaugh’s appointment till after the midterms in hopes the democrats will win. How many more good men will have to endure smear campaigns because some mindless female points a finger? 35 years ago would have been a perfect time to cry foul. Not now. At least Monica had a dress to back up her story. I’m sick and tired of the so called moral outrage from the left when they are nothing more than self serving hedonistic pariahs.
