Hits New Low, Mocks Kavanaugh Accuser In Instagram Post

Trump stayed publicly silent on Kavanaugh over the weekend but told reporters Monday afternoon that "a little delay" may be needed on the upcoming Senate Judiciary Committee vote. The Washington Post reviewed her therapist's notes and found a record of Ford describing an attack by boys from an elite private school, but not mentioning Kavanaugh by name. Republicans are aiming for full Senate confirmation before the Supreme Court term begins October 1.

Kavanaugh was a key part of an independent counsel's team that investigated Democratic President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, including his sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

After the allegations were published, Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., issued a statement commending Ford for her "courage in coming forward" and said it was imperative for the Senate to take the charges seriously.

Collins said that in a telephone conversation with Kavanaugh on Friday, he was "absolutely emphatic" that the assault didn't occur, and she said it would be "disqualifying" if Kavanaugh was lying.

In a letter to Grassley, the Democrats urged the Iowa Republican to postpone the committee vote.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durban said that the vote "must be postponed" until the FBI investigated the claims. He says, "I'm not really sure where this goes from here". "I'd like to see a complete process".

Republicans aggressively questioned Hill, who is also black, suggesting that she had made up the unwelcome advances from Thomas and trying to raise doubts about her stability.

Two women who dated Brett Kavanaugh have released statements to the media, insisting they never saw any objectionable behavior from him in his younger days. It also sets up a public, televised airing of sexual misconduct allegations, reminiscent of the seminal hearings against Clarence Thomas in 1991, that could derail Kavanaugh's nomination altogether.

Ortiz stated that he pulled over after Luera "became nervous" and began accusing Ortiz of being the last person seen with Ramirez. Ortiz, a 10-year Border Patrol veteran, was arrested early Saturday after the fifth woman escaped and found a state trooper.

Blasey Ford went public Sunday as the woman behind a letter Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week about Kavanaugh's alleged behavior.

The letter's contents eventually leaked and Ford identified herself to the Washington Post as the accuser. By the time he testified in a second round of hearings, following Hill, he said, "From my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I'm concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas".

The accusation has threatened to complicate his nomination, which must be approved first by the Senate Judiciary Committee and then by the full chamber, which is narrowly controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans. Grassley intends to press on as planned with Kavanaugh's confirmation vote later this week, but said that Ford's accusation "deserves to be heard" in an "appropriate" manner.

Republicans today abruptly called Brett Kavanaugh and the woman accusing him of sexual assault decades ago to testify publicly next week, grudgingly setting up a dramatic showdown they hoped would prevent the allegation from sinking his nomination to the Supreme Court.

Wisconsin Republican U.S. Sen. She was anxious that he "might inadvertently kill me".

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.

In the interview, Ford says she never revealed what had happened to her until 2012, when she and her husband sought couples therapy. "Dianne Feinstein", because of the senator's rank on the Judiciary Committee.

Republicans say the allegations have already cast a shadow over Kavanaugh but that it does not appear to be enough to change the votes in the narrowly divided 51-49 Senate.
