Murkowski speaks out on allegations against Kavanaugh

Hatch clarified that Kavanaugh said "he was not at a party like the one [Ford] describes" and that Ford "may be mistaking [Kavanaugh] for someone else".

"I feel so badly for him".

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the Federal Bureau of Investigation should not get involved and reiterated his support for Kavanaugh, who he said is "anxious" to testify. "Only after the details of her experience were leaked did Dr. Ford make the reluctant decision to come forward publicly".

Until Monday, Trump had remained silent about the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Many Democrats argue Judge should be invited to testify before the committee. Days earlier Kavanaugh had seemed on track for quick approval.

The White House appeared eager to resolve the matter quickly. The Trump team plans to try to discredit the charges for surfacing late in the confirmation process and to question the credibility of the accuser because she didn't tell anybody about the incident at the time, the official said.

"So it kind of raises the question, do they want to - do they want to come to the public hearing or not?"

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

Elected to the Senate in 1992, Feinstein was one of the first women to sit on the Judiciary Committee.

The accusation, which Kavanaugh has denied, is consuming Washington, where the nomination's fate is suddenly in limbo. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Judiciary Committee Democrat. He has the power to stall consideration if all Democrats on the panel join him since Republicans only hold an 11-10 majority on the committee.

This includes memory cards, which implies save files will also be stored internally alongside the pre-loaded games. We assume that Sony will reveal the full list of the 20 PlayStation Classic games closer to release in December.

Democratic committee members say their request to the FBI is not for a criminal investigation, but "appropriate follow-up" to the FBI's background investigation.

Feinstein has said that she wants to postpone the hearing until a full FBI investigation can be completed.

"The public deserves a thorough process not a rushed job", she said. He said that hasn't been worked out, and pointed to the Democrats, noting that there hasn't been a lot of cooperation from Democratic staff. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) went a step further, asking Grassley to allow Ford's counsel to cross examine Kavanaugh. One of the reviews, posted on RateMyProfessor.com on September 25, 2014, said, "Christine Ford is the worst educator I have experienced".

On Tuesday Trump doubled down on backing Kavanaugh despite a woman claiming he tried to rape her in the 1980s.

In New Hampshire, state Representative Norman J. Silber made waves Monday when he published a letter in the Laconia Daily Sun newspaper, writing a mock confession that he shared a "closed-mouth kiss or two" with a girl during a high school game of spin the bottle.

Both Ford and Kavanaugh will testify in a public hearing about the alleged incident on Monday, according to the New York Times. Hirono, who serves on the Judiciary Committee, also told Politico on Tuesday that Democrats would be willing to keep the Supreme Court seat vacant for two more years in the hope that they would regain the White House. Thomas was confirmed on a 52-48 vote.

Kavanaugh, 53, was at the White House for a second straight day, but again did not meet with Trump.

"I stand to believe there's no such thing as a "he-said-she-said" case", Linda Fairstein said. I hope Republican Voters, and others, are watching, and studying, the Democrats Playbook, ' he wrote. We are talking about a lifetime appointment for Kavanaugh to the highest and most influential court in the country.

The Post said it viewed notes from that session and an individual therapy session the following year. "Only then should the chairman set a hearing date", said Feinstein. Burgess said she added her name to the letter because she knows Ford's story "will be scrutinized, and she will be accused of lying". He has been a federal appeals court judge since 2006.

The lawyers for Ms Ford predicted the hearing, as now scheduled, "would include interrogation by senators who appear to have made up their minds" that she is "mistaken" and mixed up.
