WASHINGTON (AP) - The California congresswoman who met with the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her decades ago says the accuser "should not be underestimated."
    
Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo  told The Associated Press on Friday accuser Christine Blasey Ford "has an inner strength."
    
Eshoo learned in July of Ford's allegation Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were teenagers, which Kavanaugh denies.

Eshoo relayed the accusation to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
    
Ford and Kavanaugh have been invited to testify Monday before the Judiciary panel. Kavanaugh has agreed to go. Ford says she can't appear that day and wants to testify next Thursday if Republicans agree to several conditions, including that she is not in the same room with Kavanaugh.
