The woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct has reportedly agreed to testify this week in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Dr. Ford accepts the committee’s request to provide the first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week,” Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers wrote in a statement Saturday, according to Andrew Desiderio, a congressional reporter for The Daily Beast. (RELATED: Grassley Gives Kavanaugh Accuser More Time To Decide)

“Although many aspects of the proposal you provided via email, on September 21, 2018, at 2:33pm, are fundamentally inconsistent with the committee’s promise of a fair, impartial investigation into her allegations, and we are disappointed with the leaks and the bullying that have tainted the process,” the statement continued.

The Senate Judiciary Committee’s final offer was for her to testify on Wednesday, but it’s still unclear if that’s when it will take place.

Grassley’s previous deadline was Friday night at 10p.m. As that deadline approached, Ford’s lawyers asked for another day for her to decide. (RELATED: A Vote On Kavanaugh Will Happen On Monday If His Accuser Choose Not To Testify)
