Trump Swipes at Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford on Twitter

Although Kavanaugh has disputed her account of what happened and denied ever being at the party where the alleged attack took place, Ford is being supported by numerous politicians - including her local Congresswoman Anna Eschoo who said this morning that the 51-year-old "still bears the scars" from the attack. He will headline at political events in Springfield, Missouri, on Friday, spend the weekend at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, then go to NY for the U.N. General Assembly.

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. Kavanaugh accepted, and has spent most of the week at the White House preparing.

"Let it play out", Trump said. Dianne Feinstein of California, a letter requesting anonymity in July.

Republicans have largely stuck to the Monday timeline, as well as Grassley's decision to limit the hearing to two witnesses: Kavanaugh and Ford.

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and said he stands by his choice.

Kavanaugh was headed toward confirmation to the Supreme Court until Ford identified herself to The Washington Post, alleging that he dragged her into a bedroom and tried to undress her when both were teenagers in suburban Maryland in the 1980s.

He told the Hill.TV in an interview published Wednesday that the Democrats' attack on Kavanaugh "is no different than the Russian witch hunt" - a reference to the investigation into possible collusion between his presidential campaign and Moscow.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has been grappling with how to handle the accusation and is now engaged in negotiations with Ford's attorneys to set the terms under which she would be willing to testify in front of the committee by as early as next week. But here's what I want to tell you: "In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court", the Republican leader from Kentucky said in a speech at the Values Voter Summit Friday in the nation's capital.

"We continue to give her a lot of time".

Miranda later removed the post, explaining, cryptically, that the post "served its goal", 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. "You have to ask yourself why".

"It's just an extra day, why not wait 24 hours?" she said.

Buttons worn in support of Ford harken back to similar pins worn in to show support for Anita Hill in 1991.

Ford has told the panel she would prefer the committee not use outside counsel to question her because that would make it seem too much like a trial, the attorney told the panel.

"We already had a hearing", Cornyn said.

The Democrats, all of whom served as prosecutors or state attorneys general, noted that President George H.W. Bush asked the FBI to investigate after Hill raised allegations against Thomas.

For Trump, approval of Kavanaugh would cement conservative control of the Supreme Court and advance a White House effort to tilt the American judiciary more to the right.

Republicans, meanwhile, want to confirm Kavanaugh.
