Trump says ‘hard’ to imagine Kavanaugh did wrong

The article had first stated that Ford said Judge was in the room with her and Kavanaugh, and that Judge remembered the incident.

"The Supreme Court is one of the main reasons I got elected President".

The court doesn't have a choice but to take certain cases, such as challenges to congressional maps as partisan gerrymanders that are directly appealed to the high court, Kannon Shanmugam, who heads up the Supreme Court practice at Williams & Connolly, said during the Georgetown panel.

John Thune, R-S.D., and Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, speaks with reporters about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh following their weekly policy meetings, at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018. Feinstein defended herself in a Tuesday interview, and Ford's lawyer has said she acted appropriately.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, after the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings but before Christine Blasey Ford accused the nominee of sexually assaulting her while in high school, characterized today's Senate confirmation process as "wrong".

Kavanaugh's supporters on the committee will want to vigorously defend him.

The furious jockeying over Ford's testimony underscores the political potency so close to an election that will decide control of both the House and Senate, not to mention the confirmation of a conservative justice likely to serve on the high court for decades.

And there's Patrick Smyth, who Ford alleges was also at the party where the incident is alleged to have occurred and who, through a letter from an attorney, denied the claim.

Ms Ford has said she is willing to testify before senators but on Wednesday night it emerged she wanted the FBI to investigate her allegations before she appears in Congress.

Corker, who isn't a member of the panel, also doesn't want the committee to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation until Ford's allegations can be heard, said spokeswoman Micah Johnson. This is not a man that deserves this, ' Trump told journalists.

In July, Ford initially wrote about her allegation in a letter that was eventually sent to Sen.

The president again brushed off the idea of asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to reopen its background check into Kavanaugh, something he has the power to order, saying "it would seem the Federal Bureau of Investigation doesn't do that" and deferring to senators to handle the process from this point forward. Far from being supported and believed, Monahan says she has been "smeared, threatened and isolated by her own party". "Why did they wait until everything was finished and then bring it up?"
