Attorneys for Christine Ford, the California professor accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of committing sexual assault in high school, vowed Sunday that Ford would appear at a Senate hearing Thursday morning despite unresolved “procedural and logistical issues.”
“We made important progress on our call this morning with Senate Judiciary Committee staff members,” the attorneys, Debra Katz, Lisa Banks, and Michael Bromwich said. “We committed to moving forward with an open hearing on Thursday Sept 27 at 10:00 am.”
The attorneys continued: “Despite actual threats to her safety and her life, Dr. Ford believes it is important for Senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her. She has agreed to move forward with a hearing even though the Committee has refused to subpoena Mark Judge. They have also refused to invite other witnesses who are essential for a fair hearing that arrives at the truth about the sexual assault.
“A number of important procedural and logistical issues remain unresolved, although they will not impede the hearing taking place,” the attorneys added. “Among those issues is who on the Majority side will be asking the questions, whether senators or staff attorneys.”
