Feinstein was right to withhold Kavanaugh letter, accuser’s attorney says

19 September 2018

Ford also alleges that a friend of Kavanaugh's, Mark Judge, was a participant in the incident.

"Judge Kavanaugh looks forward to a hearing where he can clear his name of this false allegation". The FBI has I think gone through a process six times with him over the years where he went to higher and higher positions. The Missouri Democrat has been attacked by both conservatives and progressives for not taking a firm stance on the judge's nomination to the high court.

Both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh have now said they would testify before the Senate.

Flake, a Judiciary Committee Republican, told the Washington Post that Ford "must be heard" before the panel's vote on the nomination, now scheduled for Thursday. "Never had even a little blemish on his record", Trump said. She says that Kavanaugh covered her mouth when she attempted to cry out. Now that things were already circulating, she chose to come forward.

"He spoke about acts that he had seen in pornographic films involving such matters as women having sex with animals, and films showing group sex or rape scenes", she alleged.

Up until Ford's allegation, Kavanaugh's truth-shading on those and other matters was no big deal to most people.

Kavanaugh said he would be willing to talk to the committee to refute the allegations, according to a statement released by the White House on September 17.

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

The President also once again lamented Sen.

Kavanaugh and Ford have both been invited to testify before the committee next Monday. And in an unusually personal swipe, Schumer said McConnell was showing "unmitigated gall" to oppose delaying Kavanaugh's nomination after refusing for most of 2016 to consider President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the court after Antonin Scalia died. That was when another woman accused a Supreme Court nominee of sexual misconduct.

"Unfortunately, committee Republicans have only known this person's identity from news reports for less than 24 hours and known about her allegations for less than a week", Grassley said.

GOP Senators Bob Corker of Tennessee and Jeff Flake of Arizona joined Democrats late Sunday in seeking to delay the committee vote so lawmakers can further examine the allegations after the Washington Post published a detailed account from the accuser.

Klobuchar sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has an important role in vetting Kavanaugh before a confirmation vote.

While of a different nature, Trump views the Kavanaugh situation through the same lens: unfair allegations made to personally hurt him.

When Anita Hill accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment in 1991, there were four women in the Senate and none on the Senate judiciary committee.

Republicans fiercely criticized Feinstein for not coming forward with the allegation sooner and charged Democrats with arranging for Ford to level her charges at a time for maximum impact.

He has also written repeatedly about his thoughts on sexual violence, which might make him an interesting character witness if Ford's accusations against Kavanaugh result in a prolonged public investigation. She grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland and attended Georgetown Visitation high school, which is the sister school to Georgetown Prep, the school Brett Kavanaugh attended. Collins seems nine-tenths of the way to chalking this up as a political hit job by her colleagues across the aisle, which might well inform her final decision on whether to reward those tactics.
