Both Kavanaugh and Ford are expected to testify before the committee Thursday. However, incredibly, Feinstein acknowledged she can’t guarantee Ford will show up. The veteran Democratic senator had asked for the hearing to be delayed after the New Yorker magazine published claims by Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh who says he exposed himself to her while drunk at a college party in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.
Grassley also announced that the Judiciary Committee had tentatively rescheduled a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination for Friday morning, further angering Feinstein and Democrats.

Then, on Tuesday, amid reports that he had been duped by an opposition group, Avennatti's Twitter account suddenly became private. However, the lawyer insisted he had not been scammed, that his Twitter account went private only because of online threats and that his client was still willing to come forward - but only when she's ready.
