California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who accuses US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has agreed to testify before a Senate panel. <em>“Dr. Ford accepts the committee's request to provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct next week,”</em> Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, Ford's attorneys, said in a statement. The date of the woman’s testimony wasn’t specified, but the panel earlier offered for the hearings to be held on Wednesday. Accusations made by Ford last week have delayed a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation at the Supreme Court. The woman claims she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh at a high school party in the 1980s; he denies the accusations.
