Senate Panel Reaches Tentative Deal for Kavanaugh Accuser to Testify Thursday

The Senate Judiciary Committee has reached a tentative agreement for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, to testify next week.
The tentative deal struck during a call between Judiciary Committee staff and Ford's lawyers would have her testify on Thursday, a person briefed on the conversation told The Hill.
The source added that the call was "productive," lasting 15 to 20 minutes and that all parties on the call, which included staff from both parties, tentatively agreed on the date. Negotiations on a hearing are expected to continue into Sunday.
If lawyers for Ford and Judiciary Committee staffers can finalize the deal Sunday, it would be a shift for Republicans, who wanted the 51-year-old professor to testify initially on Monday and then, as a counteroffer, on Wednesday.
Spokesmen for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the tentative agreement.

UH oh. More allegations.

Senate R's knew last week, and that's why they were rushing to vote. Very bad move.

Kavanaugh is toast.
