Kavanaugh Accuser: Delay Hearing Because I Don't Like Flying
22 September, 2018, 22:58
Trump went on to suggest that he already considers Kavanaugh likely to surmount the row and be confirmed to the lifetime appointment.
"Its sole goal is to bully Dr Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family", Katz said yesterday before requesting another day to decide.
Sen. Grassley responded by saying, "come to us or we come to you" and implored Professor Ford to let the Senate judiciary committee know if she was willing to testify or not.
Attorney Debra Katz called Friday's deadline "arbitrary", saying 'its sole objective is to bully Dr Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family'. She has accused him of pinning her to a bed, grinding his body against her and muffling her screams at a teenage gathering in the early 1980s. He has categorically denied the accusations, and says he is eager to testify to clear his name.
Grassley announced the extension on Twitter in a post with an apologetic tone that was addressed to Kavanaugh. On Friday, facing condemnation from liberals and conservatives alike, Whelan apologized. "I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!" Ford will then have the option of (1) trying Grassley's patience with yet another counter-offer, (2) agreeing to what Grassley proposed, or (3) declining to testify.

Noor Al-Sibai is a news writer at Raw Story. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has explained that this investigation would not be the FBI's job, because the process of advising and consenting to a Supreme Court nominee is the Senate's purview alone. Or maybe a hybrid approach in which she agrees to nearly everything, but clings to a demand or two she thinks will find sympathy with Senators like Susan Collins - just to keep this ridiculous dance going. He did not say how long he would wait for Ford "to decide if she wants to proceed".
Senator Chris Coons (D-Del), called Trump's comments "unacceptable and beneath the Presidency of the United States".
"Senate Democrats rightly said that the Senate should not bully Dr. Ford ... the way to depoliticize that and ensure that is with an outside counsel", they said.
Privately, Republicans are anxious about the fallout from any testimony that comes from Blasey. His Republican party accuses the Democrats of using Ford as a last-minute spoiler to try and wreck Kavanaugh's path to the highest court, where he would tilt the bench firmly to the right for possibly years to come.
The President previously had avoided naming Professor Ford or plainly casting doubt on her account.
