Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh says incident described by accuser "completely false"

Kavanaugh accuser comes forward as Democrats seek to block SCOTUS nomination

Kavanaugh accuser comes forward as Democrats seek to block SCOTUS nomination

In the end, "I doubt very seriously any minds will be changed by this", says Ross Baker, a political scientist and expert on the Senate at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J.

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill says she's "deeply troubled" by allegations raised by Christine Blasey Ford. "His nomination should be put on hold until those hearing are complete".

Debra S. Katz, Ford's attorney, said the accuser was ready to testify publicly to the Judiciary panel but said senators hadn't contacted her about how that might occur.

"I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity", Kavanaugh said. It demands a thorough and independent investigation before the Senate can reasonably vote on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime seat on the nation's highest court.

"Anyone who comes forward as Dr Ford has done deserves to be heard", Grassley said in a statement.

Donald Trump Jr. posted an image on Instagram Monday with the caption "Judge Kavanaugh sexual assault letter found by Dems". Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the committee, is not cooperating. She said Kavanaugh and his friend shut her in a room and turned up the music to hide her protests. "Now that her story is public, it is even more important that we give the Bureau the time it needs to follow up", they wrote in a letter.

Fitzgerald speaks highly of Kavanaugh's character and says she was "shocked" when she heard the allegations being made against him by Christine Ford.

Ford chose to go public after reporters began contacting her last week.

"I hope they will be given the opportunity to do that as quickly as possible", Manchin said. Ford has claimed that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in college. "She should testify under oath, and she should do it on Capitol Hill", Conway said.

"She should be heard", Conway said, adding that the process "should not unduly delay the vote on Judge Kavanaugh".

But Conway said such testimony "should not unduly delay the vote".

Dead Rising studio Capcom Vancouver has been closed
Dead Rising is an "open world survival horror" featuring zombies and other monsters as well as unique weapons and plot lines. Company spokesperson Alicia Kim says multiple game titles have been cancelled, but Capcom still owns the Dead Rising brand.

Also Monday afternoon, Leahy announced that he and five other Democratic committee members had filed a lawsuit to compel the National Archives and the Central Intelligence Agency to release all records involving Kavanaugh during his time working in the White House.

During a 10-minute phone call with Sen. "I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities".

"We are not going to stand by and let Judge Kavanaugh be smeared".

"She clearly considers this an attempted rape", Katz said Monday. Ben Cardin said in an interview.

Thirdly, her lack of memory of time and place is consistent with the possibility that her memory was manipulated during the very therapy sessions where there is the only record of her telling the story thirty years after it happened.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of attacking her during a high school party in the 1980s. Susan Collins, R-Maine, wouldn't say whether the vote should be postponed or whether she believes Ford. "She believes that if it were not for the severe intoxication of Kavanaugh, she would have been raped".

Ford is "not taking a position" on whether Kavanaugh should withdraw his nomination, Katz said. Key will be the views of Collins and Sen.

"I don't know if that's fair", Durbin, a Judiciary Committee member, said on CNN.

While some Republican senators, such as Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, South Carolina's Lindsey Graham and Arizona's Jeff Flake, are concerned with process, one source said that doesn't necessarily mean a long delay - and the concern is that a long delay is what Democrats are pushing for. Whether GOP senators will allow that to happen is still unclear, but I think other senators will prevail to let the two of them testify. So two Republican votes against Kavanaugh's confirmation would derail it.

Ford did not tell anyone about the incident at the time, but The Washington Post reviewed notes from a therapist she saw in 2012 detailing the incident.

In a statement, Sen. Democrats faced criticism for being timid in her defense.
