Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee next week, her lawyers confirmed Saturday.
“Dr. Ford accepts the Committee’s request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week,” Ford’s lawyers, Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, said in a letter to the committee.
The article goes on to state the following:
The notice came after an intense 72 hours of negotiations over the terms of Ford’s testimony. As of Saturday afternoon, the exact timing was unclear, and Ford’s lawyers appeared to object to some of the terms laid out by the committee. It was also unclear whether the testimony would occur in public or behind closed doors.
By Friday afternoon, Republicans on the committee had given Ford an ultimatum, telling her lawyers that the committee would vote Monday on Kavanaugh’s nomination unless they accepted a final offer for Ford to testify Wednesday.
