Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Sunday said he would “gladly listen” to testimony from Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser just days before the Senate Judiciary Committee is set to vote on the advance of the Supreme Court nominee.
“If Ms. Ford wishes to provide information to the committee, I would gladly listen to what she has to say and compare that against all other information we have received about Judge Kavanaugh,” Graham told CNN reporter Manu Raju. “If the committee is to hear from Ms. Ford is should be done immediately so the process can continue as scheduled.”
The committee plans to vote on the nomination Thursday.
The Washington Post on Sunday published an interview with Christine Blasey Ford, a California research psychologist, who said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s. She had written a confidential letter to her local congresswoman in July, but decided in early August to not come forward because she thought it would upend her life and not affect the confirmation.
“Why suffer through the annihilation if it’s not going to matter?” she told the Post.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein last week relayed the allegation to the FBI.
