President Donald Trump challenged the woman accusing his Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault by name Friday saying that if the alleged attack was that

Abandoning his previous restraint, President Donald Trump has challenged the credibility of the woman accusing his Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, declaring that if the alleged attack was so bad she would have reported it to law enforcement.

The Hawaii senator told CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday that she asks these questions of every nominee who comes before the committees she sits on.

Miranda said she believes Ford, noting that it is unlikely that someone would put herself and her family through such scrutiny if it wasn't true.

Ford is willing to tell her story - but only if agreement can be reached on "terms that are fair and which ensure her safety", her lawyer said on Thursday (Friday NZT).

But Katz says that a Monday hearing "is not possible and the committee's insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event". Multiple news reports on Thursday indicated a female special counsel was being considered to questioning Ford instead of the committee. "I think everything's going to be just fine". Ford contends that she's open to testifying next week. Sen.

Senate Republicans have been trying to accommodate Blasey Ford to testify about the incident before the Senate Judiciary Committee in whatever way she feels comfortable.

She asked Kavanaugh, "Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made any unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?" as well as "Have you ever faced discipline or entered into a settlement related to this kind of conduct?"

Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway says the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct should not be conflated with the assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his denial. "She is now unable to go home, and is receiving ongoing threats to her and her family's safety".

Christine Blasey Ford has said she won't be ready to talk until Thursday and she should be given the chance to set her own schedule, said Sen. Kavanaugh has agreed to testify on the subject.

Trump went on to suggest that he already considers Kavanaugh likely to surmount the row and be confirmed to the lifetime appointment.

"It would seem that the Federal Bureau of Investigation really doesn't do that", Trump contended Wednesday.

Ford now says that she does not plan to testify until the FBI investigates her allegations. The president has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women - all liars, he has said.
