In a series of tweets Friday night, Grassley called on Christine Blasey Ford to give her side of the story and expressed his frustration at the lack of progress.

Lawyers for Ford have hinted their client would be willing to speak sometime next week if their list of demands were met.

The committee agreed to keep Kavanaugh and Ford in separate rooms, and to limit media coverage of the event.

Dr. Ford has until 2:30 p.m. Pacific Time Saturday to make a decision on her testimony.
