Brett Kavanaugh Accuser Willing To Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee: Lawyer

Kavanaugh Denies Allegation Of Sexual Misconduct During High School

Kavanaugh Denies Allegation Of Sexual Misconduct During High School

As terrible as the allegation about Kavanaugh is (and one is justified in questioning its veracity under the circumstances), the use of an anonymous document to undermine him is terrible. This has not changed.

"Judge Kavanaugh and the White House both stand by that statement", said spokeswoman Kerri Kupec. She also said she wants the FBI to investigate the matter before the Senate advances Kavanaugh's nomination.

"This is not a politically motivated action", she said. "That can not happen in this case".

However, top Democrats are demanding the vote be postponed following the assault allegations. Dick Durbin (D-IL) suggested there may be.

She said Mr Kavanaugh and a friend had allegedly "corralled" her into a bedroom at a gathering.

Republicans, however, showed no signs of budging.

Since Trump's fellow Republicans control a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate, and with Vice President Mike Pence to break a tie, Democrats can not stop Kavanaugh's appointment unless some Republicans make a rare decision to break with their party and vote against Trump. Progressives have mounted a furious bid ever since his nomination in July to derail him, but thus far, no Senate Republicans have indicated they will vote against his confirmation.

Ford is now 51 and works as a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California. Her work has been widely published in academic journals.

Asked how Kavanaugh is doing since Ford went public with her story, a source close to Kavanaugh said the judge "remains steadfast in his denial and is determined not to let a single, unverified allegation overshadow his long judicial record and his lifetime of public service". Having an alleged survivor confront her alleged rapist, however, has only happened once in the history of Supreme Court confirmations with Clarence Thomas. She says Kavanaugh groped her over her clothes, grinded his body against hers and tried to take off her one-piece swimsuit and the outfit she wore over it. Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream, she says, and escaped when Judge jumped on them. In the ensuing scuffle, Ford ran and locked herself in a bathroom until the guys left the room.

According to the Weekly Standard, Judge was named in the letter sent to Feinstein and Eshoo and denied that the incident occurred, telling the outlet, "It's just absolutely nuts". It added the letter to Kavanaugh's file but has not opened a criminal investigation. Kavanaugh would be replacing retired Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy.

"She is willing to take whatever it takes to get her story forth", Katz said, answering "yes", to whether Ford will agree to testify under oath.

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me".

"These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid", Ford told the Post, explaining her decision to come forward. The test concluded she was being truthful when she said a statement summarizing her allegations was accurate.

The White House on Friday released a statement from Kavanaugh in which the nominee said, "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation". They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state.

"In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect", the letter said. She later presented her allegations in the form of a letter, which she sent through the office of her her representative in Congress, Democrat Ann Eshoo, to top Democrat, Sen.

Ford came forward publicly on Sunday in an interview with the Washington Post. Scalia, whom she described as "certainly a known character", was confirmed unanimously.

Responding to the latest developments in the Kavanaugh nomination, Foy had said, "It's disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote". I assume she would be.
