Julia Louis-Dreyfus signs letter supporting Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford

18 September 2018

That vote has now been postponed so that Kavanaugh and Ford can testify on Monday.

White House spokesperson Raj Shah says Kavanaugh "looks forward to a hearing" and "stands ready to testify".

Nelson's Republican counterpart Sen.

The hearing will happen on Monday. But the president predicted that it will "work out very well". "At that point, Dr. Blasey retained counsel and then communication went between staff and Dr. Blasey's counsel", Katz said.

Limiting the hearing to just Kavanaugh and Ford would be "inadequate, unfair, wrong and a desire not to get at the whole truth", Schumer said.

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I've ever known".

Kavanaugh's once-assured confirmation has now been thrown into question, angering Trump and prompting his aides to evaluate their options moving forward.

CNN was not provided a copy of the letter sent to Feinstein, but a source who had the letter read the contents of a redacted version to CNN, in which the accuser who detailed her allegations to Feinstein wrote she had "received medical treatment regarding the assault" and said she expected it to remain confidential as she felt compelled to say something.

Monica Lewinsky Thanks Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford for Coming Forward
His spokesperson Taylor Foy did not immediately return a request for comment Monday on whether Thursday's vote will take place. The panel would also likely seek testimony from Judge , Kavanaugh's friend and classmate who Ford says jumped on top of her.

Eshoo's statement doesn't refer to Ford by name.

"She's willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth, yes, ' her attorney Debra Katz told NBC's 'Today Show" on Monday morning.

"On Friday, Judge Kavanaugh 'categorically and unequivocally" denied this allegation. "I never saw Brett act that way". 'She's willing to do what she needs to do'.

Ford initially declined to come forward. Because who would want to incur this kind of really highly politicized attack game that she now finds herself in?

The judge was seen arriving at the White House on Monday morning but there was no immediate explanation of the reason for his visit.

Republican Susan Collins said the Senate Judiciary Committee should hear the Brett Kavanaugh allegations.

Because Republicans hold a 51-to-49 majority in the Senate, they can only afford to lose two votes against Kavanaugh's nomination.

"Unfortunately, committee Democrats have refused to join us in this effort".

Kavanaugh graduated from Bethesda's Georgetown Prep high school in 1983.

The woman, Christine Blasey Ford, discussed her accusation in an interview with The Washington Post.

In an article published Sunday, Ford told The Washington Post that one summer in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a friend - both "stumbling drunk", Ford alleges - corralled her in a bedroom during a gathering of teenagers at a house in Montgomery County, Maryland.

He also said the FBI should be given time to reopen its background investigation into Kavanaugh so it could check Ford's assertions.

"For too long, when woman (sic) have made serious allegations of abuse, they have been ignored", the New York Democrat said.

"It raises questions and I think the objective of the disclosure of this is not to attack Judge Kavanaugh, not to attack his credibility".

In the end, "I doubt very seriously any minds will be changed by this", says Ross Baker, a political scientist and expert on the Senate at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J.

Leahy, the most senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced last Thursday in the Washington Post that he would vote against Kavanaugh's confirmation. Flake went as far as to say he was "not comfortable" voting for Kavanaugh for the time being. A Republican not on the committee, Sen.

Apple may or may not reveal the new laptop Wednesday, when it is holding a press event on its campus in Cupertino, California. However, Apple also came under fire in May when it was reported the company was considering opening a base in North Carolina.

However, neither Ford nor Katz have heard from any lawmakers. Feinstein aides would not say whether she had conferred with Ford or her attorney before sending the letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and neither would Feinstein, who said Monday that she could not recall when the letter had been sent to the authorities and "would have to check the records".
