Washington: Christine Blasey Ford who had accused Supreme Court nominee Bret Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her will narrate her ordeal in front of a court panel next week reported, CNN.
“Dr. Ford accepts the Committee’s request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week,” CNN quoted a written message from Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, attorneys representing Ford to the committee.
However, a date or time for Ford to address the matter to the committee has not been decided.
Ford has alleged that a few aspects which were raised by the committee in an earlier proposal were “fundamentally inconsistent with the Committee’s promise of a fair, impartial investigation into her allegations.”
In their message, the lawyers demanded to “set up a time for later this afternoon to continue our negotiations.”
A source close who supports Kavanaugh told CNN, “This is not an ‘acceptance’ of anything at all. The email doesn’t even say she will testify. It says she will ‘provide her firsthand knowledge’ but it doesn’t say how. It says she will do so ‘next week’ but doesn’t say when.
And it says the rest of the terms are still up for negotiation. It ‘accepts’ nothing at all, but the language is very carefully calculated to give her credit for having accepted.”
