Elizabeth Warren uses alleged Brett Kavanaugh victim’s story to raise cash

Elizabeth Warren uses alleged Brett Kavanaugh victim’s story to raise cash

But in the days since she publicly accused Kavanaugh, the lawyers said, she has been the target of "vicious harassment and even death threats". Her family has relocated, they said.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees Supreme Court nominations, has scheduled a hearing for Monday and invited both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump showered sympathy on Kavanaugh. Should he order such a review, it would likely delay a confirmation vote until after the election. Other Republicans are suggesting that Ford will have only this one opportunity to testify.

Even if Ford's claim turned out to be true, "I think it would be hard for senators not to consider who he is today", Hatch said. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford looks forward to working with you and the Committee. "That you are worth less than a man's promotion".

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, also a Judiciary Committee member, said that if Ford wants to provide information to the committee, "I would gladly listen to what she has to say". Thomas was confirmed on a 52-48 vote. So I think it's relevant. "This is a situation that is stacked.She's already been attacked, had to move out of her house".

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he wants to hold a full Senate vote on Kavanaugh before the October 1 start of the Supreme Court's new term.

How the Republicans and Democrats reacted to the allegations?

"No, I'm not", Mr Trump said when asked if he was concerned what Manafort might say.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said it would be unfortunate if Kavanaugh's accuser, university professor Christine Blasey Ford, did not appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to tell her story. "The invitation for Monday still stands".

Democrats complain that Ms Ford was not consulted before the hearing was announced. "So if the senators who have come forward and said they want to treat this seriously mean that, then they'll have an investigation of these allegations so that we all go into this more informed", said Ford's attorney, Lisa Banks.

The developments evoked memories of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' contentious confirmation hearings in 1991 involving sexual harassment allegations lodged against him by lawyer Anita Hill. 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. She says Kavanaugh groped her over her clothes, grinded his body against hers and tried to take off her one-piece swimsuit and the outfit she wore over it. Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream, she says, and she escaped when the friend, Mark Judge, jumped on them. "I can't say everything's truthful", Feinstein said when asked about Ford. "She is not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday". Patrick Leahy of Vermont, a long-time member of the Judiciary Committee and a former chairman told NPR's Morning Edition. "She should be heard". "Nearly all of us attended all-girls high schools in the area", the letter reads.

Ford alleged, first in a letter, then in an article to The Washington Post on Sunday, that Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her at a party in high school. At the time of the alleged encounter, Ford was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17, she said.

"It's good to hear from both the accuser and the accused here", Conway said, "and allow the Senate to weigh what they learn in those exchanges, along with the mountain of other testimonial evidence and other statements of support and endorsements of Brett Kavanaugh by the women he's known all throughout his life".
