Accuser of Trump's Supreme Court nominee to testify on Thursday

Accuser of Trump's Supreme Court nominee to testify on ThursdayThe agreement came a week after Christine Blasey Ford went public with her allegation against the conservative federal appeals court judge, endangering his confirmation by the Republican-led Senate to a lifetime job on the top U.S. court. There are, however, unresolved procedural and logistical issues, Ford’s lawyers said, including whether the Judiciary Committee’s Republican senators, who are all male, or staff attorneys would question her. Ford’s lawyers said “various senators have been dismissive of her account and should have to shoulder their responsibility to ask her questions.” Kavanaugh, who has called the allegation “completely false,” also has agreed to testify at the hearing planned for 10 a.m. (1400 GMT) on Thursday.
