Hearing Monday on Brett Kavanaugh claims

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

"She believes that if it were not for the severe intoxication of Brett Kavanaugh, she would have been raped", Katz told NBC's "Today".

Despite Harris and other Democrats' urging, the FBI maintains that there is no potential federal crime taking place with regards to the Kavanaugh allegations.

But White House counselor Kellyanne Conway took pains to display concern for Kavanaugh's accuser.

After Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court, Ford wrote to her congresswoman, Anna G. Eshoo, which was then forwarded to Senator Dianne Feinstein.

"She should not be insulted".

Of course, back in 1991, Professor Hill tried unsuccessfully to stop Clarence Thomas from taking a seat on the Supreme Court.

Kane said she knew of accuser Christine Blasey Ford but didn't know her personally.

Both Kavanaugh and Ford have said they are willing to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the allegations.

But Senator Jeff Flake, a committee member, told The Washington Post and Politico in interviews on Sunday that he is "not comfortable" voting for Mr Kavanaugh until he learns more about the allegation. "And given the political environment, and given how the nomination process was rolling along, she made the calculation that she did not want to come forward publicly".

Trump expressed regret that the allegation against Kavanaugh had surfaced so late in the process but said he wants the Senate to satisfy any lingering questions.

"Obviously, if Judge Kavanaugh has lied about what happened that would be disqualifying", Collins said, but she added that she had spoken to Kavanaugh on the phone Friday and he had emphatically denied the allegations.

Like Ford, Louis-Dreyfus is an alumna of Holton-Arms School, all all-girls school in Bethesda, Maryland. A split seemed to be emerging among the GOP.

Through the White House, Kavanaugh "categorically and unequivocally" denied the allegation and said he is willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee about it.

The Republican leader criticized Democrats for sitting on the information during weeks of debate on Kavanaugh's nomination. "I never saw Brett act that way", Judge said.

Ancient Sphinx discovered in Egypt, archaeologists reveal
Egypt said archaeologists have discovered a statue of a lion's body and a human head in the southern city of Aswan. The Ptolemaic dynasty ruled Egypt for about 300 years - from about 320BC until the Roman conquest in 30BC.

Evenly balanced for years, the court is expected to tilt decidedly conservative if Kavanaugh is approved, potentially threatening women's access to abortion, restrictions on presidential powers, and efforts to curb gun ownership.

With Republicans narrowly controlling the Senate 51-49, the views of Collins and Sen.

Joe Scarborough put as fine a point on the optic challenges that face Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, noting their "thankless task". Contacted Sunday by CNN, Sen. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who did not immediately comment publicly Sunday. The committee, chaired by Sen.

A spokesman for Grassley complained about the timing of Ford's public accusation, saying it "raises a lot of questions about Democrats' tactics and motives to bring this to the rest of the committee's attention only now rather than during the many steps along the way".

Ford received her Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, master's degrees from Stanford University and Pepperdine University, and her bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Leah Vukmir, supported Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Democrats, already fiercely opposed to Kavanaugh, whose confirmation could consolidate the conservative grip on the top US court, had demanded a delay in the committee's vote to let the FBI investigate. On Sunday, the Post published an interview with Ford.

The letter says the women feel Ford's story is "all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton". "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing".

What does Ford say happened? .

"If it was this bad, why did not the Democrats challenge Judge Kavanaugh when he was in front of them?"

Moderate Republicans also said Kavanaugh and Ford should be heard.

Dr Ford's attorney general Debra S Katz said her client considered the incident to be an attempted rape.

Republicans have not settled on the strategy, the person familiar with the situation said, but were weighing options, including doing nothing. On Monday, Kavanaugh again reiterated his denial of the allegations.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Sen.

Both have indicated they are willing to testify about the allegations. "It calls out for something that is fair, that is comprehensive, that tells not just Dr. Ford, but tells all survivors that we see you, we hear you, we know you deserve better".
