Since Ford has filled out the troubling details of her accusation and attached her name to them, they can not treated so casually.
"As you are aware, she has been receiving death threats, which have been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family have been forced out of their home", it said.
Kavanaugh said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee tonight that he looks forward to testifying next week.
"Brett Kavanaugh, and I'm not saying anything about anybody else, Brett Kavanaugh is one of the finest human beings you will ever have the privilege of knowing or meeting", Trump said. On Thursday, Alaska Gov. Bill Walker and Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott - both independents - issued a statement opposing Kavanaugh's nomination.
Blasey Ford's lawyers have told the committee she can not appear at its hearing scheduled for Monday, calling the date Republicans set "arbitrary", according to The Washington Post and The New York Times.
"I've asked this of".
"It's very unfair, I think, to - as you know, Justice Kavanaugh has been treated very, very tough, and his family", the president said.
Ford told The Washington Post she told no one at the time what had happened to her, and was terrified of punishment from her parents if they realized she had been at a party where underage drinking was happening.
Miranda later removed the post, explaining, cryptically, that the post "served its objective", and that she "was not ready" for the media attention the post garnered - even though NBC News and other outlets reported Miranda's claims as a major break in the Kavanaugh story. Kavanuagh has repeatedly denied the allegations. Mark Judge, the other classmate identified in the allegation, also denied the incident occurred. "Even more nominees will be confirmed".
Attorneys for Ford did a round of interviews after she went public and pledged that she was prepared to testify before the committee. She has been evaluating sexual assault and sexual harassment cases in civil litigations for years. It's the men in this country. Hirono said at a news conference Tuesday that she wanted the men in this country to "just shut up and step up".
Despite the demands by Ford's legal team and Senate Democrats for an FBI investigation, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and President Donald Trump have opposed holding an FBI investigation into the incident.
Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, set a deadline of Friday at 10 a.m. ET for a decision from Ford on whether she will testify, and it's unclear whether she'll choose to appear. She wants the FBI to investigate to establish a baseline of facts about what she and others say before she'll agree to talk to the Judiciary Committee, especially in a public hearing.
Gupta, who carried a sign declaring herself to be a survivor and said she too had been a victim of sexual assault, added: 'It is awful how standing up for yourself leads to attacks on your family.
