Christine Blasey Ford's attorney, Lisa Banks, told CNN's Anderson Cooper Tuesday that Ford will not testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee unless the FBI investigates the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.
The big picture: Even if the FBI agrees to investigate, Banks explained, a proper investigation cannot be done on Monday. "Asking her to come forward in four or five days in front of the committee is not a fair process. She will work with them in the investigation... There should be no rush. It’s premature to talk about a [hearing] on Monday," Banks said.
