In one obstacle that must be overcome, attorney Debra Katz's email said a hearing Monday is "not possible" and that scheduling it that day "is arbitrary in any event".
"Senate Republicans are attempting to make Dr. Blasey Ford testify on just a few days' notice - without having the Federal Bureau of Investigation follow up on her allegations and provide a report first", said the letter, which was spearheaded by Sens.
Ford alleges that more than 30 years ago, when she and Kavanaugh were teenagers in high school, he sexually assaulted her at a party - holding her down, groping her, attempting to remove her clothes and putting his hand over her mouth when she tried to shout.
"If she shows up and makes a credible showing, that will be very interesting and we'll have to make a decision", Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a trip to the Carolinas. The Democratic party is nearly universally calling for an FBI investigation that it knows full well is not going to happen, and should not happen, and using its absence as a reason for the hearing to be delayed.

You get a 24MP primary sensor behind an f/1.7 lens, an ultra-wide 8MP f/2.4 module with 120° viewing angle and a 5MP depth sensor. The Galaxy A6, Galaxy A6 Plus, the new Galaxy A7 , and even the Galaxy Watch don't have an MST chip.
Gillibrand, who has supported legislation on sexual assault and harassment in the military and in Congress, said she would not recommend that Ford testify without an FBI investigation. "They are totally intent on getting Judge Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court come hell or high water". Whether Democrats might have been so frantic to stop Kavanaugh that they would have forced Ford's name into print if she had declined to speak up this past weekend is a fascinating what-if. But, they wrote, her life had been "turned upside down" since she went public with her allegations. Ford and Democrats want the FBI to investigate her allegations Kavanaugh assaulted her three decades ago, but Republicans are refusing.
Republican and Democratic Judiciary Committee staffers spoke with Katz and Ford attorney Lisa Banks by phone on Thursday to negotiate on a potential hearing for next week. Republicans have addressed the allegation by setting a tentative hearing on Monday featuring testimony from Ford and the Supreme Court nominee. "He remains committed to providing a fair forum for both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh". "It starts at age 18 and comes forward".
Prof Ford earlier declined the Senate's offer to testify unless the FBI began investigating the judge.
Senate Republicans have been clamoring to get Ford in front of the Judiciary Committee before lawmakers vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court next week. She said was able to escape after Judge jumped on them both and toppled them off the bed.
Can sorry for ´we´re not women´ blast over Ronaldo red card
The red card could ruin the chances of a reunion between Manchester United and Ronaldo at Old Trafford. I think if you have seen the pictures, you'll have seen that it's incomprehensible", Matuidi said.
Taylor Foy, spokesman for Republicans on the panel, said after the call that Grassley "will consult with his colleagues on the committee".
Grassley had said that in the interest of making Ford comfortable, he'd be willing to let Ford testify in public or private. He added, "Since the moment I first heard this allegation, I have categorically and unequivocally denied it".
Peters said she hasn't yet had a chance to sit down with Ford and discuss the specific incident in clinical detail, but "people who experience sexual assaults that are as scary as this one seems to be, according to her story, can suffer shame, fear, depression, anxiety".
