As Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford says she will testify to Congress, will Trump get his Supreme Court pick?Christine Blasey Ford – the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault – will testify to Congress on Thursday, as will Mr Kavanaugh, in a hearing that will likely be a decisive moment in the judge’s confirmation. President Donald Trump, and Republicans at large, had been hoping for Mr Kavanaugh to be be confirmed before the Supreme Court opens its new session on 1 October. At the centre of all it is the allegation from Ms Ford that Mr Kavanaugh tried to force himself upon her at a party when they were both teenagers in high school.

Accuser of Kavanaugh to testify on Thursday

Accuser of Kavanaugh to testify on ThursdayThe agreement for Christine Blasey Ford to testify came just hours before the New Yorker magazine published an article in which a second woman, identified as Deborah Ramirez, described another instance of alleged sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, also in the 1980s, when both attended Yale University. Ford’s agreement to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee came a week after she went public in an interview in the Washington Post with her allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when both were high school students in Maryland. Kavanaugh also has agreed to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing planned for 10 a.m. on Thursday.

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.
