Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s primary sexual assault accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, is still receiving death threats. In fact she is receiving so many serious and alarming threats to her life that she has been unable to move back into her California home.

A lawyer for Dr. Ford, Debra Katz, was interviewed by Kasie Hunt from NBC News and told her that it’s going to be “quite some time” before Dr. Ford and her family will feel safe enough to return to their home.

“Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys tell @kasie that Ford is still not living at home and can’t for “quite some time.”
She is still receiving “unending” death threats.”

Kavanaugh and Ford Will Testify on Thursday If They Can Agree on Details

The New York Times and the Washington Post both reported Saturday night that an agreement has been reached between the Senate Judiciary Committee and Christine Blasey Ford. The agreement called for Ford to testify before the committee sometime on Thursday.

The deal, which has not been finalized, was termed “tentative” because the negotiations over the details were to continue on Sunday. This means the deal could still fall apart if the parties can’t agree on the details before Monday.

The tentative deal was reached during a telephone call between staff members of the Judiciary Committee and Ford’s attorneys.  Ford is the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Kavanaugh will also testify before the committee on Thursday.

News reports say the call lasted approximately 20 minutes and that all parties on the call unanimously agreed on next Thursday as the date for both Ford and Kavanaugh to give their sworn testimony before the Judiciary Committee.

It is hoped that lawyers for Ford and staffers for the Judiciary Committee will be able to reach agreement on the details and finalize the deal Sunday. This would be a major shift for Republicans, who wanted Ford, a 51-year-old professor from California, to testify on Monday.

News outlets tried to reach Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, for comment on the tentative agreement but he was unavailable.

With all parties agreeing on a Thursday date for testimony to occur, a major stumbling block had been overcome. Ford and her attorneys had announced earlier Saturday that she was willing to testify next week, but they had not yet agreed on a date.

In the email sent on Saturday afternoon Ford’s attorneys Debra Katz and Lisa Banks wrote:

“Many aspects of the proposal you provided via email … are fundamentally inconsistent with the Committee’s promise of a fair, impartial investigation into her allegations, and we are disappointed with the leaks and the bullying that have tainted the process, we are hopeful that we can reach agreement on detail.” read more

More Bad News For Kavanaugh: The FBI Says People Who Are Lying Don’t Ask To Be Investigated

A number of former FBI agents and prosecutors are saying that people who make up allegations tend not to ask for the FBI to investigate them.

Ken Dilanian of NBC News tweeted:

Joyce Vance added:

Yes. We can add this to circumstantial guarantees of Dr. Ford’s truthfulness. You don’t encourage an FBI investigation unless you believe the truth is on your side. If you think an investigation will tend to incriminate you, you…obstruct its progress. https://t.co/rp2EDphj3A read more
