Ms Debra Katz, a lawyer for Ms Ford - who only came forward publicly on Sunday after trying to keep her name hidden for more than a month - had said earlier she was ready to speak under oath before the SenateJudiciary Committee.
Grassley has said he will not ask the FBI to investigate the allegations, as Ford has requested.

Wednesday's rule, after the GOP gave Ford a chance to be heard: Christine Blasey Ford must not participate in this sham. "She deserves to be treated with respect and fairness by the Senate".
Ford alleges that at a house party in the 1980s, a drunken Kavanaugh tried undressing her on a bed and stifling her cries before she fled - an accusation Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied.

She also says Kavanaugh's friend at the time, Mark Judge, cranked up music in the locked room so her cries of protest couldn't be heard. Senators, he said, will have to determine if Ford's account of the event meets the threshold to declare Kavanaugh unfit to serve on the Supreme Court. If she shows, or makes arrangements to testify behind closed doors or to committee staffers, fine.
He called the allegation against Judge Kavanaugh "a drive-by shooting". "Monday is her opportunity", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday.
While Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) had originally said that the hearing needed to be postponed until Ford's testimony could be heard, on Tuesday he said that if Ford refused to testify on Monday, the Senate should move forward with their vote.
Hill's allegations against Thomas drew scorn and attack from many Republican senators - some of whom, like Sen.
