It sets the terms Ford is being asked to accept by 10:00 p.m. tonight. "She should decide so we can move on. But what we need to find out here is - we don't know enough yet so I can't reach that conclusion" she said of the question of Kavanaugh in particular. "It's not my normal approach to b indecisive".
A rep for Grassley said Ford's camp now has a Saturday deadline to accept the Judiciary Committee's invite to testify. Ford now wants it to be shifted to later in the week, and has sought, through her attorney, a guarantee for her security.
After a restrained week, Donald Trump has changed course, questioning why she did not report the allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation 36 years ago if they were "as bad as she says".
He said while Kavanaugh had agreed to testify, Ford, a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University, declined.
The Republican-controlled Senate judiciary panel has struggled on how to proceed with Kavanaugh's nomination.
He tweeted, "I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!" he wrote.
"Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a fine man", he added, "with an impeccable reputation, who is under assault by radical left wing politicians". "Bullying a survivor of attempted rape in order to confirm a nominee-particularly at a time when she's receiving death threats-is an extreme abuse of power", Feinstein said in a statement.
If her attorneys can not come to a reasonable agreement, the Senate will vote on Monday to confirm Kavanaugh.
"Facts don't matter. I go through this with them every single day in D.C.", Trump said.

Man City No2 Arteta: Guardiola disappointed with ban
"[The favourites] has to be Real Madrid, they have something special for this competition and they deal with every detail better than everyone else".
"In the end I have to be able to look in the mirror and say I did what I thought was right". Doing so would nearly certainly evoke the panel's handing of Hill and potentially alienate suburban women voters who could decide the elections and control of the House and Senate.
Trump's outburst saw a new #MeToo era hashtag storm the internet, with #WhyIDidntReport the top trending conversation starter on US Twitter, as people - mostly women - vented outrage over past transgressions and voiced solidarity with Ford.
Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand called Friday's comments a "vile attack".
Ford has said she never mentioned the alleged incident to anyone until 2012, when she revealed it during a marriage counselling session with her husband. That means asking questions of a nominee for the Supreme Court who has been credibly accused of sexual assault.
US Senator Susan Collins of ME offered her most extensive remarks yet about her nationally watched decision making as she considers whether or not to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court in the coming days. You've watched the fight, you've watched the tactics, but here's what I want to tell you: "In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court", McConnell said.
McConnell has wanted to whisk Kavanaugh to confirmation before the court's new term starts October 1 - and before November's elections.
Republicans felt they were starting to gain momentum in the public relations battle over the handling of a sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
McConnell said with a tiny 51-49 majority that was the most consequential decision he made.
Ford, on the other hand, has received support from Democrats, many of whom were already opposed to Kavanaugh's ascension to the nation's highest court.
