But Ford's lawyers say details of her appearance have yet to be worked out and they criticized Republicans for the way negotiations with their client have been conducted.

Max Young, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, said, "At approximately 2:30 Republicans sent her a proposal and gave her a 5 p.m. deadline".

"I think her requests have been reasonable", he said. I hope u understand. "It's not my normal approach to b indecisive", Grassley said. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, granted one final request for an extension.

Ms Katz had called Mr Grassley's original deadline "arbitrary" and said its "sole goal is to bully Dr Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family".

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a house party in the 1980s, when they were both teenagers at Washington-area private schools.

Kavanaugh has denied the sexual assault allegation. "Just remember, this Senate Judiciary Committee, the composition is 11 Republicans, 10 Democrats". Democrats have demanded more time for scrutiny, and Republicans want to move ahead quickly with a confirmation vote in an increasingly volatile political climate ahead of congressional elections on 6 November. Trump broke his silence to cast doubt on Ford's story Friday in ways Republicans had been carefully trying to avoid. "I will listen if she does". It's only after her testimony that a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation can take place in the Senate. "Dr. Ford believes it is important for senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her". "So I thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate and wrong".

Trump's outburst saw an outpouring of sympathy for Ford - and outrage at the president - as thousands of women, and men too, shared why they had kept silent after being assaulted, under the Twitter hashtag #WhyIDidntReport. Keyser is the ex-wife of Beckel, a former Democratic operative and commentator.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, accused Republicans of "bullying a survivor of attempted rape in order to confirm a nominee" by saying they will vote Monday on the nomination if they don't reach an agreement with Ford and her lawyers for her to testify.

Maezawa also said he would invite six to eight artists from around the world to join him on the trip as a creative project. Musk later reversed course, saying the company no longer has plans to certify the Falcon Heavy for human spaceflight.

The question of whether Ford would testify before the committee had gone unanswered for several days amid protracted back-and-forth tussling between Senate Republicans and Ford's legal team, who disagreed on the ideal timing of the hearing, as well as who should testify first and whether outside lawyers should be allowed to ask questions. Thomas was confirmed after a hearing that infuriated many women who believed the all-male committee mistreated Hill.

The choice of a new justice for the Supreme Court is pivotal, as it often gives the final word on highly contentious laws and its nine judges have an vast impact on United States public life. "You couldn't get a warrant because the three people named by Dr. Ford as having been at the party outside of Kavanaugh all say they don't know what she's talking about", he said.

"She has already been forced out of her home and continues to be subjected to harassment, hate mail, and death threats".

Another 34 percent of voters polled say they are unsure.
