Though CNN was not privy to the receiving end of the phone conversation, one of the women working the phone assured a caller at one point, "She (Collins) still does care what her constituents have to say". "But I don't think you can delay it any longer".
"I was appalled by the president's tweet", she told U.S. media. "So I thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate and wrong". She says she can relate to women who say they've been mistreated by men and understands why it might take years to come forward with such allegations.

That silence and Mr Grassley's offer, which did not rule out further compromise, left uncertain whether Ms Ford would appear and tell politicians about her allegation that an inebriated Mr Kavanaugh trapped her on a bed and tried removing her clothes when both were teenagers in the 1980s.
