Brett Kavanaugh accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, has agreed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley had set a new deadline for Ford's decision for 2:30 p.m. this afternoon and reports say she has accepted the request. 

The exact terms and timing of her testimony is not known at this time.

Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford said the sole purpose of the original deadline, which was Friday night, was to "bully" Ford.

At a rally in Missouri yesterday, President Trump called on his supporters to defend his nominee.

"A Senator, good guy, said to me the other day, it was very interesting. we were talking about, frankly, Judge Kavanaugh. And I said, we have to fight for him, not worry about the other side. And by the way, women are for that more than anybody would understand," he said, speaking to a crowd.

Ford says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when he was 17.

She's accused him of pinning her down, covering her mouth and trying to remove her clothes.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
