Grassley said it was up to the Senate to assess the credibility of Kavanaugh and Ford.
In her testimony on Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation that Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court nominee, sexually assaulted her in the 1980s, Christine Blasey Ford said that weeks later when she saw Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge, who she says was in the room, "he looked a little bit ill". In essence they are put on trial and forced to defend themselves and often re-victimized in the process, ' she said in her opening statement.
"I believe there should be an independent investigation", Baker told The Boston Globe. "I think it's going to be a very important day in the history of our country".
Ford has said Judge was in the room when Kavanaugh assaulted her in high school, a charge Judge has denied and said he has no recollection of.
Kavanaugh also stands accused of exposing himself to a classmate, Deborah Ramirez, causing her to touch him without consent, during an alcohol-fueled Yale University party a few years later.

A fifth accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was revealed in an interview transcript released by the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday night. Judge says he worked there to raise money for football camp.
Kavanaugh described Swetnick's accusations as "ridiculous", adding "I don't know who this is and this never happened". "This is what terrified me the most and has had the most lasting impact on my life". She admits that she was drunk.
The committee also released a summary of its work that noted its staff had spoken to two different men who believe they "had the encounter" with Ford, rather than Kavanaugh. "And their having fun at my expense", Ford responded, adding, "They were laughing with each other". She also detailed that in the first four years after the alleged attack, she struggled academically and to make new friends - especially with boys - in college.
She said when she put her key in the apartment door, which was unlocked and slightly ajar, it opened, according to the affidavit. When an officer has been arrested for a crime, adverse conduct is often cited in the officer's termination, he said.
Judge's lawyer said in a letter to the committee on Tuesday that Judge did not recall the incident and did not wish to testify. Democratic Senator Doug Jones said Mark Judge , Kavanaugh's high school friend, should be subpoenaed if he refuses to testify.
Coming forward to the Washington Post , Ford says she remembers the attack to be in 1982, when she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17. Nor should Kavanaugh's accuser get a public hearing, especially under such clearly political circumstances.
