After the Jauregui’s speech, Gloria Allred issued a response to the media, which can be read in full below:Yesterday, I emailed a letter to the Chairs of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee and the United States  Senate Select Committee on Ethics in which I formally requested that those committees conduct a hearing within the next two weeks regarding the accusations made by the five women who alleged that they were victims of Roy Moore when they were teenagers.My client, Beverly Young Nelson, volunteers to testify under oath at a hearing before these committees regarding what she alleges Roy Moore did to her. We also urge the Committees to subpoena Roy Moore to testify under oath about his denials of the accusations made against him.In the event that either or both Committees agree to conduct our requested hearing, then we would agree to have the original yearbook examined by an independent expert or experts who would obtain exemplars of Mr. Moore’s handwriting during the period in question and compare that handwriting to that contained in the yearbook.The time has come for Roy Moore to announce whether he is willing to be examined under oath concerning his conduct with regard to the five accusers before the Senate Committees.We look forward to the Senate’s response.Gloria AllredAllred, Maroko & GoldbergDon’t miss breaking news, traffic and severe weather where you live – download the CBS 42 News app today
