Woman Accusing Judge Kavanaugh of Sexual Assault Wants FBI Probe

April FrancisSep 20, 2018

"Would you look into it?' of course they do", Leahy said.

Judge Kavanaugh said in a statement released by the White House Monday, "This is a completely false allegation. They've delayed a major hearing", Trump said.

September 23, 1991: Biden says in a statement reported in the Times that this is the date on which Hill agreed to allow the FBI to investigate the allegations. "I really would want to see what she has to say", Mr Trump said Wednesday. "This is not a man that deserves this". In the letter he said he did not see any "improper conduct" by Kavanaugh, a classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, according to CNN, which obtained a copy of the letter.

Some GOP senators including Bob Corker of Tennessee and Lindsey Graham of SC say they see no reason to wait beyond Monday for Ms Ford's testimony, and that they want the Senate to vote next week.

"He's not happy, he's upset", Kennedy said.

Whatever the Federal Bureau of Investigation does, the prospect of criminal charges being filed against Kavanaugh appear very unlikely, legal experts say.

Fellow Republican Susan Collins of ME said on Wednesday that she hopes Prof Ford "will reconsider and testify" on Monday. She said she listened until she heard the boys 'going down the stairs, hitting the walls.' And after five or 10 minutes, she left the bathroom, made her way through the living room and left the house. Grassley said he was disturbed to learn of the threats.

Those demands are "not about finding the truth, but delaying the process until after the midterm elections", Graham, a Judiciary panel member, said in a statement. And this totally disadvantages Dr. Ford.

Zero: That's how many women sit among the panel's Republicans, who will cross-examine Ford.

"If the chairman called the Federal Bureau of Investigation and said, 'we have this question about a nominee".

"There are gaps in her memory", Cornyn said.

Gas-related explosions set fire to homes near Boston
A man whose neighbourhood was among dozens that erupted in fire says he ran into his basement to find that the room was glowing. Joseph Solomon, the police chief in nearby Methuen, said 20 to 25 homes were on fire in Lawrence when he responded to help.

It was not clear where and when Ford had identified Smyth as being present at the party.

"Now this is really what #MeToo is all about, if you think about it", said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, for how she handled a letter she received from Blasey in July that detailed the alleged incident.

In the Senate, the issue of whether, when and if Ford might testify has ignited a furor, especially among Democratic women. "And it is not the woman's fault".

If the Monday hearing happens, Ford's claims and character will be on trial whether or not she's physically there. But he said pointedly, "Monday is her opportunity".

He still expressed confidence that Kavanaugh would be confirmed, saying, "I'm not concerned about tanking the nomination".

Democrats complain that Ford was not consulted before the hearing was announced.

Thomas' initial hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee began. Patty Murray, D-Wash., assistant Senate minority leader, speaking about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But I can only say this: He is such an outstanding man.

Trump questioned why the accusation became public only on Friday, after Kavanaugh had undergone four days of questioning in early September.

"If she is accusing him of something so egregious, she needs to be heard", Ernst told Radio Iowa on Tuesday.

On Monday, Republicans abruptly agreed to hold a public hearing on Ford's accusation under pressure from senators demanding that the nominee and his accuser give public, sworn testimony before any vote.

Ford, 51, is a professor of psychology and a statistician at Palo Alto University who also teaches at Stanford. "Many of us are survivors ourselves", the letter reads.
