- Well welcome to the 700 Club.
Christine Blasey Ford may testify
about her alligationagainst Brett Kavanaugh.
Her legal team has madean offer to the Senate
and now both sides are tryingto work out the details.
- But the Senate JudiciaryCommittee is not likely
to accept all of her terms.
Jennifer Wishon brings us this look
at some of Ford's requestsand how Judge Kavanaugh's
responding to the charges against him.
- Christine Blasey Fordis open to testifying
before the Senate Judiciary committee
if she can negotiate certain conditions.
Ford accuses Judge Brett Kavanaugh
of sexually assaulting her while
the two were in high school.
If she testifies, reports indicate
she doesn't want JudgeKavanaugh in the room.
Kavanaugh must be questioned first
and only members of thecommittee can question her,
no lawyers or Senate Aides.
- You're unlawfully demonstrating.
- [Jennifer] On Capitol Hill,
protestors swarmedSenate offices Thursday.
- [Protestors] We believe doctor Blasey.
- [Jennifer] As Senate JudiciaryChairmen Chuck Grassley
and others negotiatedwith Ford's attorney.
- We offered one more close session
or two ways of doing it by transcript.
- [Jennifer] In a letter to the committee,
Kavanaugh writes he wants a hearing
as soon as possible to clear his name.
"Since the moment I firstheard this allegation,"
He writes, " I have categorically
and unequivocally denied it.
I remain committed todefending my integrity."
And President Trump isstanding by his nominee,
praising him during ancampaign rally in Nevada.
- Brett Kavanaugh is one of the finest,
human beings you will ever
have the privilege of knowing, or meeting.
- [Jennifer] The Presidenthas expressed sympathy
for what Kavanaugh is going through,
but maintains Ford should be heard.
- So we'll let it play out and I think
everything's gonna be just fine.
- [Jennifer] Since Ford'salligation surfaced,
both she and Kavanaughhave received threats.
And behind the scenes, bothrepublicans and democrats
are calculating how thisis playing politically.
Just about six weeks beforethe mid term elections.
At this point the only guarantee
is that nothing is certain.
