Katz also wrote that since the professor went public with her accusations, she has been a "target of vicious harassment and even death threats. But I think politically speaking, the senators will do a very good job". "If she doesn't, that would be unfortunate". "She is not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday". The FBI has said it is not investigating the matter, a decision backed by Republicans. Christine Blasey Ford was a year or so behind me, I remember her.
Republicans are suggesting that Ford will have one chance to testify, and one chance only.
The only way the Federal Bureau of Investigation would get involved is if President Trump took the extraordinary action of ordering the Federal Bureau of Investigation to do so. "The invitation for Monday still stands". When Eshoo and Ford mutually chose to take the matter to Sen.
Democrats decried Republicans' plans to push ahead with the hearing without seeking a full FBI investigation.
"On the Democratic side, Robertson says the key lawmakers to watch are Sens".
In "Wasted", Judge wrote about a character named "Bart O'Kavanaugh" who drank until he passed out, according to the Post. In light of Blasey's allegation, the vote to confirm Kavanaugh has been delayed.

The senate committee looking into Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation has invited Professor Blasey Ford to give evidence on Monday, but she says she wants an FBI investigation into her allegations first.
"What we're saying is there should be an investigation because that's the right thing to do", Banks said.
"What would be the objective of the hearing if Dr. Ford doesn't want to respond?"
Thomas' initial hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee began. By the time he testified in a second round of hearings, following Hill, he said, "From my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I'm concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas". "It is imperative the Judiciary Committee move forward on the Kavanaugh nomination and a committee vote be taken as soon as possible". Dr. Blasey Ford's experience is all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton.
But Jones says the FBI is well-equipped to conduct a quick investigation and interview potential witnesses.
Then-White House deputy press secretary Judy Smith said in a statement published by Newsday on October 6, 1991, that Hill's allegations of harassment were "brought to the attention of the Judiciary Committee" on September 23 - a time frame that differs from Hill's account - and the committee "immediately" informed the White House.
