High-School Assault Accusation Could Kill Kavanaugh Confirmation

High-School Assault Accusation Could Kill Kavanaugh Confirmation

On whether the vote should be delayed, Collins was only willing to tell CNN she would "be talking with my colleagues, but I really don't have anything to add at this point".

The alleged incident happened the summer before Ford's junior year at a small party, Ford's lawyer, Lisa Banks, said in an interview with Morning Edition's Rachel Martin. He told the Weekly Standard on Sunday that he has "no recollection" of it. But Judge's 1997 memoir, "Wasted", references a "Bart O'Kavanaugh" character who passes out drunk and throws up in a auto. Dianne Feinstein (FYN'-styn) didn't raise allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sooner but says he's "totally supporting" his nominee.

Grassley did say he's looking to schedule follow-up calls with Ford and Kavanaugh.

The way that Anita Hill was treated when she came forward was a national disgrace. Kavanaugh has denied it.

Conway stressed that letting Ford testify and Kavanaugh answer the charges "should not unduly delay the vote", even as Democrats on the committee demanded a delay to allow the FBI to investigate.

He adds he's "totally supporting" and "very supportive" of his nominee, calling him an "outstanding" person. The president said Kavanaugh had "never had even a little blemish".

The move forced Republicans to put off a planned committee vote for Thursday on Kavanaugh's nomination.

Kavanaugh arrived at the White House on Monday, shortly after issuing a strongly worded statement denying Ford's allegation and stressing his willingness to go before the Senate Judiciary Committee to "refute it". Flake said he told No. 2 Senate Republican leader John Cornyn of Texas on Sunday that "if we didn't give her a chance to be heard, then I would vote no".

Christine Blasey Ford grew up in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., and attended Holton-Arms School, a private preparatory school in Bethesda for girls in third through 12th grade.

Also, seriously, who listens to Maroon 5 voluntarily? In addition, they're not shy about collaborating with other artists. They have the star power and the musical power to be the big event the Super Bowl halftime show demands.

Both Maura Kane and Maura Fitzgerald signed on to that letter.

"I've made it clear that I'm not comfortable moving ahead with the vote on Thursday if we have not heard her side of the story or explored this further", Flake, a member of the committee, told the Post.

It looks increasingly likely as though the September 20 scheduled vote will be delayed in order to give Ford an opportunity to testify before the Judiciary Committee, and allow Kavanaugh to come back before the committee to respond to the accusations.

Grassley says Republicans have reached out to her three or four times by email but have not heard back.

But Grabien News' sloppy sleuthing led them to the wrong Christine Ford. "But as a necessary step in evaluating these claims, I'll continue working to set them up", Grassley wrote.

Republicans on the Judiciary Committee scheduled a hearing Monday to hear testimony from both Kavanaugh and Ford.

Van Hollen, in a written statement, called her allegations "serious and credible". The institutional damage to the Senate, the Supreme Court, and the nation has already been enormous. Even if Democrats peel off the one Republican vote to not recommend Kavanaugh to the full Senate, Republicans have another option.

Republicans have criticized Democrats for waiting until the 11th hour to surface the letter. Kavanaugh and the woman accusing him of a decades-old sexual assault both indicated Monday that they would be willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Kavanaugh is expected to answer the allegations directly in conversations with lawmakers. She said Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending them tumbling, and she was able to escape, the newspaper reported.
