Fourth Witness To Alleged Kavanaugh Assault Says It Didn't Happen

Christine Blasey Ford to testify about her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Ford "accepts the committee's request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct next week", said a message from her lawyers to the Senate Judiciary Committee, US media reported.

"Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a fine man, with an impeccable reputation, who is under assault by radical left-wing politicians who don't want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay", Trump wrote.

Tensions have been running on overdrive since Ford went public last week with her allegation that Kavanaugh assaulted her when they in high school.

The committee had given Ford, a California professor, until 2:30pm (1830 GMT) Saturday to decide on whether to appear, after she rejected a Friday evening deadline imposed by the committee's Republican leader, Chuck Grassley.

The committee wanted her to appear Wednesday, but she prefers her earlier request for Thursday, according to a person familiar with the negotiations who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

"With all the extensions we give Dr Ford to decide if she still wants to testify to the Senate I feel like I'm playing 2nd trombone in the judiciary orchestra and Schumer is the conductor". "I don't remember whether we said anything to each other when I left his office", she said. Trump asked, as he defended his Supreme Court nominee.

None of the five women featured believe Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, and they all dismiss her claims as either misremembered, based in jealousy, or overblown.

Katz had said the deadline was "aggressive and artificial".

Grassley originally offered Ford four choices to air her testimony-a public hearing, a private hearing, a public testimony with committee staff, or a private testimony with committee staff.

On Friday, President Donald Trump sought to cast doubt on Ford's allegation.

Under the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport, thousands of women began recounting why it took them many years to talk about their attacks.

Why, indeed. And it's in Republicans' best interest to get the confirmation over with as quickly as possible, since as it drags on, support for Kavanaugh is flagging.

There are unresolved procedural and logistical issues, they said, including whether the committee's Republican senators, who are all male, or staff attorneys would question her.

In other words, Ford expects to be believed without question because 36 years ago she suffered what for any woman would be a devastating experience she "will never forget" - but she demands to be excused for not recalling key facts about the unforgettable.

"I have not communicated at all with [White House counsel] Donald McGahn or anyone at the White House, or Judge Kavanaugh, about the topic of the Twitter thread", Ed Whelan said in a brief interview with The Washington Post.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegation and pledged to testify.

Significantly, by submitting statements to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh, Judge, Smyth, and Keyser have all subjected themselves to legal jeopardy under federal law, which makes it a crime to make "any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation" to a Senate committee conducting an official investigation.
