Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford willing to testify before Senate

The woman who accused Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her while they were in high school has agreed to testify before Congress.

On Saturday, lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford told Senate Judiciary Committee staff she "accepts" the request to speak to the panel next week about the alleged incident.

Republicans on the committee and Ford's lawyers had disagreed on numerous counts.

According to the AP, the person briefed on the talks said that Ford's lawyers for and bipartisan representatives of the committee came to the tentative agreement Saturday, however other terms of the public hearing will be negotiated Sunday.

Although details are still being worked out, Ford's appearance would put an end to a stalemate that's lasted for several days, and engulfed Kavanaugh's nomination in a firestorm of controversy.

In an email to the committee, lawyers for Ford said that while she has agreed to "provide first-hand knowledge of Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct", they are disappointed "with the leaks and bullying that have tainted the process". Kavanaugh has denied the allegation and said he would appear before the committee next week. He has said he wants to testify as soon as possible to clear his name. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
