supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh and the woman accusing him of sexual assault are invited to testify in front of the senate judiciary committee next week. but just last night ? an attorney christine blasey ford ? told c?n?n she wants an f?b?i investigation first. kimt news three's deedee stiepan spoke to our political analyst about the firestorm that's unfolding in tyler ? arielle the timing of this accusation against judge kavanaugh has some republicans expressing doubts and suspecting it's part of a last? ditch effort by democrats to derail his nomination. i met with kimt political analyst dr eric shoars to get his take on the situation. he says it could be difficult to prove the intention of this going public now is (not politically motivated... especially since kavanaugh was already confirmed by the senate in 2006 when he was appointed "where were these allegations and accusations when you have a position so close to the supreme court, why is it now? that's where a lot of people are going to be trying to dismiss the accusations as just a democratic ploy to stop a conservative judge nominated by president trump from taking a seat on the supreme court." president trump says while he supports the delay in the confirmation process to give kavanaugh and his accuser the opportunity to speak ? he says it's "terrible" this information wasn't brought forward sooner. saying kavanaugh calls the allegation "completely false." it will be up to 21 senators to decide who is telling the truth. the hearing is set to begin on monday.
