Jeff Flake: Kavanaugh Accuser 'Must Be Heard'

Jeff Flake: Kavanaugh Accuser 'Must Be Heard'

There was no immediate explanation of the reason for his visit.

Kavanaugh had been a relatively smooth confirmation track until the allegations against him were reported last week.

Ford claims that what Kavanaugh allegedly did to her at a party in the 80s was attempted rape. Weinstein denies the allegations.

Republican Senator Orrin Hatch said he spoke with Kavanaugh on Monday.

On Fox News on Monday morning, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Ford "should not be insulted and she should not be ignored". Miss Hill testified on her charges of alleged sexual harassment by Judge Thomas, Oct. 11, 1991.

Christine Blasey Ford has publicly accused Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault decades ago.

Senator Feinstein said she notified federal investigators about the letter, and the FBI confirmed it has included the information in the letter in Mr Kavanaugh's background file, which all senators can read. "If she does want to be heard, she should do so promptly".

The White House is standing by Kavanaugh's initial denial. She recalls him being extremely intoxicated and pinning her down on a bed, grinding against her, attempting to take off her clothes, and covering her mouth so she couldn't scream.

A split seemed to be emerging among the GOP.

A Judiciary committee vote on Kavanaugh's nomination is scheduled on Thursday. Senate Republicans hold a 51-49 majority and can not afford two or more Republicans voting against Kavanaugh's nomination unless they pick up votes from Democrats. Flake did not indicate to the Post how he would vote, but said it was his view "we can't vote until we hear more".

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.

Ford says in a letter sent to Democratic Sen. Contacted Sunday by CNN, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), has not delayed the vote. The committee, chaired by Sen.

Ms Feinstein on Sunday called on the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's story "before the Senate moves forward on this nominee". Later that day, the FBI announced it would not open an investigation. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in late July through her Congresswoman Anna Eshoo's office, with the understanding that her story would remain confidential.

Ford did not tell anyone about the alleged incident until couples therapy with her husband in 2012, but she reportedly didn't name Kavanaugh at the time, stating only that it was boys from a nearby elite high school who are now "highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington". "I thought he might inadvertently kill me", Ford told the newspaper, adding, "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing".

"I know that in the coming days, her story will be scrutinized, and she will be accused of lying", Burgess said.

Katz told CBS that Ford had consumed a beer but was not drunk.

Over my almost four decades in the Senate I have worked diligently to protect whistleblowers and get to the bottom of any issue.

It's unclear whether the willingness to testify expressed from both Ford and Kavanaugh will delay the confirmation process.

Senator Grassley could invite Ms Ford to testify, likely in closed session before Thursday. Kavanaugh would also probably be asked to appear before senators. "The judge, who I know very, very well, is an honest man, so this didn't happen", Hatch said.

"If it takes a little delay, it'll take a little delay", Trump told reporters in the White House Roosevelt Room.

Ford's allegations come almost a year after the #MeToo movement was popularised following the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct by Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein, who has since been charged with rape and other sexual crimes.
