Kavanaugh sex assault accuser negotiates over US Senate showdown

57

Christine Blasey Ford, the woman whose accusation of sexual assault 36 years ago threatens to derail President Donald Trump’s conservative Supreme Court nominee, is now willing to testify in a showdown at the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Ford’s lawyers told the committee she refuses to appear at a hearing scheduled for Monday, where the accused nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, wants to give his side of the story.
