Kavanaugh accuser wants Federal Bureau of Investigation probe before she will testify

Grassley said during an interview with Salem Radio host Hugh Hewitt Tuesday morning that Ford, despite multiple attempts, has not responded to requests for testimony on Monday.

Trump says he feels "terribly" for Kavanaugh, his wife "and for his attractive young daughters".

In television interviews on Monday, Ford's Washington-based lawyer, Debra Katz, said her client would be willing to speak out publicly.

"She is prepared to cooperate with the committee and with any law enforcement investigation", she added. 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". On Monday, all ten Judiciary Committee Democrats signed a letter urging President Donald Trump to request a follow-up inquiry from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"He spoke about acts that he had seen in pornographic films", Anita Hill testified more than two decades ago when the Senate Judiciary Committee was holding hearings on the nomination of Clarence Thomas.

A hearing in front of the committee is scheduled for Monday, but details remain tentative.

She alleged that Kavanaugh and a friend - both "stumbling drunk" - corralled her into a bedroom at a party. A spokesman for Grassley did not immediately say whether Judge was among the other witnesses being contacted.

President Donald Trump, who picked Kavanaugh, an appellate court judge in Washington, to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, voiced his continuing support.

Unlike Thomas, who allegedly behaved offensively as an adult and fully sober, "you and I know high school kids".

The lawyers wrote that Ford, who is now a college professor in California, wants to cooperate with the panel. Kavanaugh has denied it.

Tomlin confirms Steelers WR Brown was absent from facility on Monday
As first reported by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brown was a no-show at the Steelers' facility on Monday. He's a great player, don't get it twisted, but there's no doubt Brown is a diva and has some "it's all about me" in him.

Trump acknowledged there could be a delay on the confirmation vote."I wish the Democrats could have done this a lot sooner because they had this information for many months ... but with all of that being said, we want to go through the process..."

Both the Kavanaugh and Thomas cases underline one of the abiding rules of Supreme Court nominations: The best surprise is no surprise at all.

The group released a letter Tuesday calling for a "thorough and independent investigation" before the Senate can vote on Kavanaugh's nomination. It's the men in this country, and I just want to say to the men of this country, just shut up and step up.

But now coming under scrutiny, are entries in Kavanaugh's high school yearbook that appear to reference a culture of drinking and hard-partying at Georgetown Prep.

About 600 people signed the letter. Given the politics, given energized women voters, given the new climate about sexual harassment, "it's very important that they give due respect to Dr. Ford". She did not raise the question at any time during the hearing. Harry Reid (D) of Nevada, when he was Senate majority leader.

Democrats have pushed back on the hearing.

Ford detailed her story in a letter sent to Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein in July. She claims Kavanaugh drunkenly held her down, groped her, and attempted to undress her at a party in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh has had a relatively smooth confirmation track until the allegations against him were reported last week.

Republicans are forging ahead with plans for a Senate hearing they had wanted to avoid on a woman's claims that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were high schoolers.
