Brett Kavanaugh: 'This is a completely false allegation'

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

In a statement on Monday, Kavanaugh called the allegation by Ford, who is a college professor, "completely false". I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone.

In the interview, Ford says she never revealed what had happened to her until 2012, when she and her husband sought couples therapy.

Katz tells ABC's "Good Morning America" the accuser is "willing to cooperate" with investigators and the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Ford's decision to go public prompted some key senators to voice support for a delay in Kavanaugh's nomination process, which is scheduled to be voted on in the Senate Judiciary Committee this week. She contacted her congressmember and The Washington Post through a tip line.

Ford claims that Kavanaugh forced himself on her at a high school party in the 1980s, pinning her to a bed and attempting to undress her.

Before the allegations became public, Blunt touted Kavanaugh's personal background in a speech on the Senate floor earlier this month and criticized Democratic efforts to slow his nomination. She believes if it were not for the severe intoxication of Brett Kavanaugh, she would have been raped'.

"She believes that but for his inebriation and his inability to take her clothes off, he would have raped her", Katz said.

Coca Cola is in serious talks to produce marijuana-infused drinks'
Coca-Cola is reportedly watching the cannabis industry and is intrigued by the idea of drinks infused with CBD. One of Bloomberg's sources said the drinks in question would fall under the "recovery drink" category.

The White House and other Kavanaugh supporters had dismissed the allegation of sexual misconduct when it was initially conveyed in a private letter. Consistent with that practice, I asked Senator Feinstein's office yesterday to join me in scheduling these follow-ups. This woman is going to be heard.

Ford said Kavanaugh and a friend - both "stumbling drunk", she says - corralled her in a bedroom when she was about 15 and Kavanaugh was about 17.

"For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect".

Nearly a quarter - 23% - didn't know whether the Senate should vote to confirm Kavanaugh, slightly fewer than "didn't know" about Thomas in July (pre-Hill accusations) - 31%. The accusations have thrown the timeline into doubt, however.

The GOP-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee appears nonetheless committed to a vote later this week despite calls by Democrats to postpone the vote.

"Dr. Blasey Ford's experience is all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton", the letter says.

On "Outnumbered Overtime" Monday, Baier said he expects Ford and Kavanaugh will go under oath soon - possibly as soon as this week - and the whole situation is perilous for both Democrats and Republicans. "Let's make very clear that these Democratic senators ... were not interested in Judge Kavnaugh's significant record, his character and integrity, as testified to by many women". "If the committee is to hear from Ms. Ford, it should be done immediately so the process can continue as scheduled". Now, they complicate what once looked like a certain path to confirmation, with talks of re-opening the hearings to allow both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify. Even now, leading Democrats on the judiciary committee are arguing that any hearings featuring Ford should be delayed.

Feinstein is facing backlash for bringing the letter into play so close to the confirmation vote, and in the words of Fox News' Tammy Bruce, using it as a "political hatchet".
