Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faces new sex cover-up claims

George W. Bush stands by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual misconduct allegation Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faces new sex cover-up claims

For Republicans, who wanted Kavanaugh confirmed in time for the start of the new Supreme Court session beginning October 1, a week or two would throw that timeline off.

But now she was anxious that her name would come out. "The weight of the government should not be used to destroy the lives of witnesses who are called to testify", she said.

Ford is now a psychology professor at California's Palo Alto University. Shrinking her portfolio to "Democratic activist" seems unfair to Katz.

Now, Ford and Kavanaugh will both testify in a public hearing on Monday.

Yet a few Republicans have suggested there may have to be a delay, at least in the Judiciary vote on the nominee - which was scheduled for this Thursday - in order to hear from Ford.

Democrats have called for a full FBI investigation of the allegations, however, saying the Monday hearing will be too soon. At one point, she says, Mr. Judge jumped on top of both of them, which caused them all to topple off the bed, enabling her to get free.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein reportedly won't say if the accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are true.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement previous year, Biden, a Democrat, said he owed Hill an apology.

"I've said from the beginning that these are very serious allegations and she deserves to be heard".

The letter from Ford's lawyers notes that despite receiving a "stunning amount of support from her community", Ford has also "been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats" and has been forced to leave her home.

But while Ford has yet to accept the invite and Democrats are advocating for a completed FBI investigation before any hearing takes place, Republicans on the fence about Kavanaugh are already hinting that a no-show means the process will have to go on as planned and unlikely to nudge them toward voting against his confirmation. He groped her and tried to pull off her clothes and a one-piece bathing suit - all while holding his hand over her mouth so she couldn't scream. In their letter to Wray and McGahn, they ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation to interview Kavanaugh, Ford and other relevant witnesses.

A group of women who attended Holton-Arms have begun to circulate a letter of support for Ford. Eshoo passed the letter to Feinstein, who turned it over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The nominee, who denies the claim, has met officials at the White House for a second day.

"It's a process, and we all feel - speaking for all of the Republicans - we feel that we want to go through this process and we want to give everybody a chance to say what they have to say". They are "modest people", White said.

"We did drink beer, but I never saw him out of control drunk", Kane said. And a month later at the March for Science, she wore a pink-yarned "brain hat", Gensheimer said.

"She is a person of integrity", Leahy said of Feinstein.

"She could do it privately if she prefers, or publicly if she prefers", McConnell said, adding, "Monday is her opportunity".

Kay, who is part of the mothers text group, is convinced that Blasey Ford is doing the right thing.

"In fact, I have no memory of this alleged incident".

"A young 15-year-old girl never has a voice, never knows what to do, is embarrassed, frightened and scared", Kay said.

"We should honor Dr. Blasey Ford's wishes and delay this hearing", Feinstein wrote on Twitter.

Gensheimer said he became friends with Blasey Ford about eight years ago. "And she is under absolutely no obligation to participate in a smearing of her and her family".

"She would be my shark spotter", he said. They also complained that the committee scheduled Ford to "testify at the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. Senators on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident".

The FBI said in statement on Monday night that last Wednesday it received a letter dated from July concerning the allegation, and forwarded it to the White House counsel.

This week, in the turbulent waters of Washington, it looks like she's taking the plunge.
