Kavanaugh's accuser ready to testify under certain conditions: New York Times

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A lawyer for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, professor Christine Blasey Ford, told a U.S. Senate committee on Thursday that Ford would be prepared to testify next week if the terms are fair and her safety is ensured, the New York Times reported on Thursday.

In an email to the Senate Judiciary Committee, attorney Debra Katz said, however, that it was “not possible” for Ford to testify on Monday, as the committee had hoped, the Times said. It said Katz proposed a call later on Thursday to discuss the terms for any testimony.
