WASHINGTON, DC (WBZ-AM/24/7 News Source) -- Dr Christine Blasey Ford is done testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Ford defended her allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. 

Kavanaugh will testify before the panel this afternoon.  He has strongly denied Ford's allegation.  Ford said she is 100 percent certain that Kavanaugh assaulted her in a house in Maryland in the 1980s.  She and Kavanaugh were in high school at the time.  Ford is a college professor in California.  

Kavanaugh has strongly denied all allegations of assault and misconduct.  None of the eleven Republican men on the Senate Judiciary Committee will question Kavanaugh or his accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

They are outsourcing that task to Rachel Mitchell, a prosecutor from Arizona.  

The Senate Judiciary Committee is still planning to vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court tomorrow morning.  There was growing speculation that a vote would be delayed in light of today's Senate hearing involving Kavanaugh, but a vote is still on the calendar for Friday. 

Kavanaugh has strongly denied allegations of sexual misconduct and serious misconduct.  Democrats are pushing for a delay and are demanding a full FBI investigation of the allegations.  If the Republican-led committee approves Kavanaugh Friday , the full Senate could vote on his confirmation early next week.
