The Woman Accusing Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh of Sexual Assault

Senate Supreme Court

Senate Supreme Court

Later in the day a White House spokesman said he's ready to testify.

"She should not be ignored or insulted".

Hill endured a brutal assault on her personal reputation in hearings and in conservative media, and the all-male Republicans on the committee ultimately backed Thomas.

Without the emergence of new evidence, we will never know if Christine Blasey Ford's accusation against Brett Kavanaugh is true or not. Ford is willing to appear before Congress, and Conway urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to hear her testimony under oath. After her story began to leak, she changed her mind and chose to go public. "In fact she was quite reluctant to come forward".

Ford, a registered Democrat, is being represented by Washington attorney Debra Katz, known for her work with #MeToo accusers, the Washington Free Beacon reported. They also plan to question Ford's credibility and point out that she did not tell anyone about the incident when it first happened. Republican senators are expressing concern over a woman's private-turned-public allegation that a drunken Kavanaugh groped her and tried to take off her clothes at a party when they were teenagers.

"This is a completely false allegation", Kavanaugh said Monday in a written statement. The 53-year-old judge was there to meet with the White House legal team to prepare for potential interviews or questions from the Judiciary Committee, a source familiar with the matter said.

The Republican leader criticized Democrats for sitting on the information during weeks of debate on Kavanaugh's nomination.

Sharing similar sentiments, South Carolina Sen. A Republican not on the committee, Sen.

Kellyanne Conway, Trump's top female aide, also said Ford should be heard out. Susan Collins are two key GOP swing votes. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), to postpone the vote so that the Federal Bureau of Investigation could investigate. "Instead, she waited until after the confirmation hearing as the committee is now preparing to vote, in what can only be described as a desperate, last-ditch effort to derail the nomination with an uncorroborated rumor". Don't be silly. From the moment the allegation against Kavanaugh broke into wide circulation, the battle lines were already drawn. "These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid".

'She clearly considers this an attempted rape, ' Katz said of Ford's view on the incident.

"They need to be fully vetted", Democratic Sen. The senator is considered one of the most likely Republican "no" votes on Kavanaugh, but so far, she's been quiet about how she's leaning on confirming him.

As of early Monday afternoon, the Senate Judiciary Committee was scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination Thursday.

Republicans have not settled on the strategy, the person familiar with the situation said, but were weighing options, including doing nothing.

The accusation has raised the prospect of congressional Republicans defending Mr Trump's nominee ahead of mid-term elections.

Trump vowed to appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade - the controversial 1973 decision that legalized abortion on demand in America.

The White House has accused Ms Feinstein, who revealed the letter's existence late last week, of mounting an "11th hour attempt to delay his confirmation". She deserves to be heard and treated with respect.
