Senate Republicans are rejecting Christine Blasey Ford's request to have outside witnesses testify at Monday's hearing.
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn told CNN this when asked why there would be no outside witnesses:
"We already had a hearing. That's what I call hijacking the regular committee process to accommodate political interests. What we are interested in knowing for her is whether she had credible testimony that this event occurred as she said it did. If she doesn't show up, we don't have that information and we have to proceed without it."
A spokesman for the Senate Judiciary Committee, George Hartmann, confirmed that the plan is to only allow two witnesses testify — Kavanaugh and Ford, if she agrees.
Ford's attorneys and Democrats have called for outside witnesses, as was the case in the Anita Hill hearings.
Cornyn also made clear that the GOP will move forward with a vote if she doesn't appear Monday.
"If she doesn't want to participate and tell her story, there's no reason for us to delay. I think it all depends on what she decides to do. We've all made clear this is her chance," he said. "But if she doesn't want to do that, then we're going to have a markup."
