Kavanaugh accuser speaks to newspaper on record

Kavanaugh accuser speaks to newspaper on record

"With Kavanaugh's hand over my mouth I feared he may inadvertently kill me".

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which handles Supreme Court nominations, penned an op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times on Sunday formalizing her opposition to Kavanaugh's nomination and briefly referencing her decision to share the letter's contents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Feinstein called on the FBI to investigate Ford's story "before the Senate moves forward on this nominee". She described Kavanaugh and a friend of his, also in the room, as "stumbling drunk". Eshoo said in a statement that she was "proud" of her constituent.

She gave portions of the therapist's notes to The Post. "She didn't say anything in our confidential session with Judge Kavanaugh".

Ford's story is highly credible. Republicans are aiming for full Senate confirmation of Kavanaugh before the Supreme Court term begins October 1.

"I am grateful to her for weighing these equities and choosing to speak out on one of the most consequential decisions in our country, an appointment to the highest Court in the land", she continued. Judge has denied that the incident happened. His friend, Mark Judge, has said he has no memory of it.

Senate Democrats, including New York Sen.

According to the Post, Ford is a professor at Palo Alto University who teaches in a consortium with Stanford University. She works under the name Christine Blasey.

The game was lost when: You can say it was over when the Chiefs raced out to a 21-0 lead just 13 minutes into the game. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is off to one of the most sensational starts in National Football League history.


The Washington Post reports that Ford has already submitted to a polygraph and passed.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-Rhode Island, said Ford's move "requires a pause, at a minimum, in the unseemly, special-interest-funded rush to put Brett Kavanaugh on the court". After all, Hill's friend, administrative law judge Susan Hoerchner, had reportedly sprung a similar surprise on a fellow judge, with complete success, and it may well have been she who urged Hill to try the same tactic with Thomas. "They locked the door and played loud music precluding any successful attempt to yell for help", Ford wrote in the letter, which was published on Sunday by CNN.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa is working to set up bipartisan staff conversations with Kavanaugh and Ford before Thursday's committee vote on the nomination, Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy said in an e-mail Sunday evening. "That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day". If Ford's claims lack merit, or even if they just don't have enough evidentiary support to be clearly established more than 35 years later, then Kavanaugh and his allies deserve the opportunity to make that showing. She added that she kept quiet about the alleged incident until she found herself in couple's therapy with her husband back in 2012. Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the end of his junior year at Georgetown Prep.

A White House spokesperson said on Sunday that the Trump administration is continuing to stand with Judge Brett Kavanaugh after a woman came forward and described an alleged sexual assault.

WaPo said she refused to talk with them for "weeks".

"It has always been Mrs. Ford's decision whether to come forward publicly", the senator said. Ford named two other teenagers who she said were at the party.

This came after elements of the allegations were made public in recent days, prior to the Washington Post interview. Kavanaugh is not mentioned in the book, but a passage about partying at the beach one summer makes glancing reference to a "Bart O'Kavanaugh", who "puked in someone's auto the other night" and "passed out on his way back from a party".
