WASHINGTON — The woman who has accused President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault threw into doubt plans for an extraordinary Senate hearing to air her accusations, charging on Tuesday that some senators have already made up their minds and insisting that the F.B.I. investigate first.

Speaking through her lawyers, Christine Blasey Ford did not explicitly rule out appearing next Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify along with Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh. But echoing Senate Democrats, she said an investigation should be “the first step” before she is put “on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Republicans are unlikely to negotiate an alternative date and could go ahead with the hearing without her or cancel it altogether if Dr. Blasey refuses to appear and move quickly to a vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. They have repeatedly stressed that Monday would be her opportunity to testify, either privately or publicly, and that they then planned to move forward with the confirmation process. They have also rejected the possibility of an F.B.I. investigation.

  1. She wants the FBI investigation because that is what the democrats want as a way to slow the whole process down, with the ultimate goal of postponing it until after the midterms. I want to see the vote taken and the Judge confirmed and the seat filled. This is all another last ditch effort by the democrats to cling desperately to what they already have and hope that they can use this to gain any small advantage in the elections.

  2. This entire situation is driven by politics. The Democrats are using this woman as a pawn, which is not fair to her or any woman that has ever been sexually assaulted. The Democrats do not care about abused victims, they just care about destroying someone they feel is in the way of their power.

  3. Prepared with this knowledge, you just buy around the less prominent draw days.
    The US Green Card lottery that is the official program conducted from the US Congress, grants 50,000 diversity immigrant visas
    to individuals from various eligible countries throughout the world.
    It is really challenging to predict the winning combination because there are too many combinations
    that can be drawn.
