Developing now, Friday, Sept. 21, 2018 Lawyers for the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault have laid out the terms under which she would agree to sit down for a Senate interview. However, it remains unclear whether a hearing scheduled for Monday will still take place President Trump, in an exclusive interview with FOX News’ Sean Hannity, says Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford should be allowed to tell her story to the Senate, but that Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote can’t be delayed much longer Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators several times, according to a report. Meanwhile, there is progress in negotiations for a potential Mueller interview with President Trump, FOX News has learned Trump dossier researcher Nellie Ohr has refused requests to testify before lawmakers, and Republicans are considering ways to force her testimony, sources tell FOX News All eyes will be on Wall Street on Friday after the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 closed at new all-time highs on Thursday THE LEAD STORY – KAVANAUGH’S ACCUSER OUTLINES HER TERMS: Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to agree to certain terms before she sits down for a potential interview over her accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago … Among the terms: Only members of the committee — no lawyers — can question her; Kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the time; and Kavanaugh should be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear Ford’s testimony. The requests, some of which appeared to be negotiable, capped a whirlwind day of back-and-forth statements on Thursday. Ford’s lawyers told the Senate Judiciary Committee that she was open to testifying next week, but that it was “not possible” for Ford to testify at a hearing scheduled for Monday by Senate Republicans. They reiterated that she had a “strong preference” for an FBI probe beforehand. GRAPHIC LANGUAGE: Kavanaugh, wife and Ford all receiving death threats Dem Sen.

I’ll tell you … PRESIDENT TRUMP WEIGHS IN: President Trump on Thursday night told FOX News he thinks Brett Kavanaugh is “an outstanding person” who deserves a vote on his Supreme Court nomination, adding: “I don’t think you can delay it any longer” … The president’s remarks came during an interview with Sean Hannity ahead of a “Make America Great Again” rally in Las Vegas, where Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., is up for re-election. Trump added that Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, should be given an opportunity to “have her say and let’s see how it all works out.” But Trump noted that “they’ve delayed it a week. And they have to get on with it.” Frank Miniter: America needs Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court – Here’s why Cory Booker’s push for Kavanaugh vote delay called out over his 1992 column detailing teenage groping Anti-Trump Georgetown professor goes on profane tirade against Kavanaugh, GOP TRUMP’S ‘FIXER’ JOINS RUSSIA ‘WITCH HUNT’: Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former longtime lawyer, has met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators several times, including within the last month, the Wall Street Journal reports … Mueller’s investigators asked Cohen about Trump’s business dealings with Russia, sources told the Journal. Last month, Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance law violations in arranging hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal “at the direction” of then-candidate Trump. Both Daniels and McDougal say they had extramarital affairs with Trump, a claim the president denies. Trump has said he would consider a Mueller probe of his business dealings a red line, telling the New York Times last year: “I think that’s a violation.” The Wall Street Journal’s report comes amid new optimism over the prospect of a potential Mueller interview with Trump. President Trump’s legal counsel is “pleased with the progress being made” in talks with Mueller about a possible interview, a source familiar with the process told FOX News on Thursday. Any interview of Trump is unlikely to take place before the November midterm elections, the source said. HOSTILE TRUMP DOSSIER WITNESSES: Nellie Ohr, who worked as a contractor for the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier and whose Justice Department husband became a backchannel for passing along that information, has refused multiple requests to appear voluntarily before House committees, Fox News has learned … Former FBI general counsel James Baker also has refused similar requests. With lawmakers unable to secure a commitment to appear from Nellie Ohr or Baker, a Republican House Judiciary Committee aide indicated subpoenas are an option to “compel” their testimony.
