McConnell says Kavanaugh ‘will be’ on court soon

That Ford revealed her story in couples therapy six years ago and that there apparently exists a psychologist's notes corroborating this makes it less likely she invented the charges to derail Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, though the federal judge's ascent to the nation's highest court was reportedly something she was anxious about.

They argue they've given every opportunity for Ford to get her story directly to the Judiciary Committee without the involvement of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - either to committee staffers or to members.

"So these are the kind of men and women that President Trump has been sending up and we've been confirming, and I hope it makes you proud", McConnell said. Kavanaugh has denied the accusation.

Ford wants Kavanaugh to testify first and then she will tell her story to the committee, a committee staffer said.

He said Mr Kavanaugh's accuser should "have her say and let's see how it all works out, but I don't think you can delay it any longer".

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.

The Kentucky Republican said, "You've watched the fight".

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was "under assault" by radical leftist politicians, appearing to grow impatient with the delay of his appointee's confirmation proceedings.

So I have to organise them better defensively and the players have to understand that'. We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals.

Senate Republicans have been clamoring to get Ford in front of the committee before lawmakers vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

The source notes that it is not standard procedure for another witness to dictate who else should testify and "that's not precedent we are going to follow". "Facts don't matter. I go through this with them every single day in DC".

Numerous Republicans had called for the confirmation process to move forward if Ford would not agree to testify, and they accused Democrats of trying to stall the confirmation process.

Thirty three protesters were arrested outside of Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley's office in the Hart Senate Office Building Thursday afternoon. All of the Republicans on the panel are men, and the committee is known to be concerned about the optics of having questions from the GOP side come only from men.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, who has encouraged Ford to be heard, said on CNN on Friday that Ford's requests were a "laundry list of demands".

The message and positive tone of the attorney's email breathed new life into the possibility that the panel would hold a dramatic hearing at which both Ford and Kavanaugh could give their versions of what happened at a party in the 1980s in a Maryland suburb of Washington.

"I'm sure she's preparing mentally to embrace her truth and kind of get past the things that have made her feel like she has to hide it and be silent", her sister-in-law Deborah Ford Peters told ABC's "Good Morning America".

Professor Ford has said she didn't tell anyone at the time about the incident.
