The Senate Judiciary Committee had delayed a vote on Kavanaugh’s affirmation after California professor Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations emerged final week, and her legal professionals and committee workers have been negotiating the situations of her testimony.
“Dr. Ford accepts the committee’s request to offer her first-hand information of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct subsequent week,” Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, Ford’s attorneys, mentioned in a press release.
