Christine Ford threw Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination into chaos.
Ford – who is a Democrat – claimed Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a party in high school.
But one piece of paper may have just ended her plea bargain to testify publicly.
Ford and her lawyers stalled for time by dragging out negotiations with the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Critics don’t believe she has any intention of testifying.
They contend she just wants to delay the vote on Kavanaugh so the Democrats can see if they win the midterms.
Everyone thought there was a deal for her to appear on Thursday, but a letter from her lawyer threw that up in the air.
They claim it is unfair that Senate Republicans want to use a female outside counsel to question her.
In new letter from Dr Ford’s Attorney to the Judiciary Committee, they again object to having outside counsel ask the questions for republicans at Thursday’s hearing, and ask for the name and resume of who that person will be.

Democrats want the sight of 11 Republican men questioning a woman accusing a powerful man of attempted rape.
It does not matter that Ford’s story is baloney and she is not credible.
The media wants to drive home that the GOP hates women ahead of the midterm elections.
But Ford has no right to dictate the terms of the Committee’s investigation.
Critics believe this is Ford’s way of ducking the hearing.
They contend she knows her claims are false and she does not want to lie under oath.
