Gillibrand says GOP is 'bullying' Christine Ford

Grassley has said he will not ask the FBI to investigate the allegations, as Ford has requested.

The sexual assault allegation should be fully investigated, Sack said, but in the meantime, Ford shouldn't be dismissed as less than credible.

"The whole idea of this is to postpone the vote as long as possible", he said.

Banks said the "rush to a hearing is unnecessary", and called for the Judiciary Committee to summon additional witnesses from the alleged incident.

Mr Grassley's letter states that Prof Ford has until Friday morning to provide the committee with her prepared testimony and biography if she plans to testify next Monday. And this totally disadvantages Dr. Ford. Over the weekend, Ford told the left-wing Washington Post she "told no one at the time what happened to her". That this courageous woman is receiving death threats and has been forced to flee with her family is appalling and heartbreaking. "A sexual assault victim can't sleep in her home tonight because of threats", Mr. Swalwell wrote in a now deleted tweet. Her email has been hacked, and she has been impersonated online.

While most Republicans have expressed support for Kavanaugh, they've largely been careful to not criticize Ford's assertions about what she says happened.

On Wednesday, Senator Jeff Flake - who had previously said he would not decide his vote until hearing both testimonies - also called on Prof Ford to accept the Senate's invitation. My live-blogging of the hearing made clear my view that Chairman Grassley should have been much more firm with the Democratic committee members who were trying to throw a monkey wrench into the proceedings.

Blasey Ford was invited to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday but has not accepted because she first wants to see an FBI investigation. "She continues to believe that a full non-partisan investigation of this matter is needed and she is willing to cooperate with the Committee".

But Jones says the FBI is well-equipped to conduct a quick investigation and interview potential witnesses.

"It can be closed, whatever Ms. Ford wants", said Sen.

On Saturday the president's son posted a crayon-drawn note poking fun at a woman who had accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teens. "It's so slick it doesn't compute". Kavanaugh has denied Ford's allegation and has said he's willing to appear before the committee. "I don't know what the last minute is", he said.

"He has revealed his bias against limits on campaign donations which places him completely out of the mainstream of this nation", she wrote, adding that she was "also uncomfortable about his view on Presidential power as it relates to the rule of law, and his position that corporations are people".

"Grassley's process is a sham but I didn't expect them to broadcast it so openly".

Ford has contended that at a house party in the 1980s, a drunken Kavanaugh tried undressing her and stifling her cries on a bed before she fled.

Anita Hill says the Senate Judiciary Committee could be holding a "sham" hearing next week without an FBI investigation of a woman's sexual-assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
