Senate Democrats, women’s rights groups, and Ford herself have called for an FBI investigation into her allegations of sexual assault—but the Republican-led Judiciary Committee has revealed its intention of pushing through a hearing as quickly as possible, forcing Ford to choose between telling her story to the nation without a federal investigation backing up her claims, or not telling it at all.

Ford has said she is open to testifying before the committee—but not until the FBI conducts an investigation of her claim, which she first sent to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in July just after Kavanaugh was nominated.

A probe by federal investigators should be “the first step” before Ford is put “on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident,” her lawyers said this week.

“If it’s truly Senator Collins’ intention to side with Brett Kavanaugh over Dr. Blasey Ford, she will never again be able to claim the mantle of an ally to women or survivors, and that is not something that women will ever forget—not next week, not next month, and not in 2020 when she’s up for reelection,” said Hogue.
