Lawyer: Kavanaugh Accuser ‘Not Prepared’ to Testify on Monday, Before FBI Investigation

Lawyer: Kavanaugh Accuser ‘Not Prepared’ to Testify on Monday, Before FBI Investigation”

She has accused Kavanaugh of attacking her and trying to remove her clothing while he was drunk at a suburban Maryland party in 1982 when they were both high school students, allegations Kavanaugh has called "completely false".

Ford recounted the incident in couples therapy back in 2012, while her therapist jotted down notes, indicating that she didn't just come forward with these allegation after Kavanaugh was nominated. Murkowski said it would be a "a very interesting and unfortunate turn of events".

Sexual misconduct accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are conjuring memories of another allegation. Now, with 23 women in the Senate - including four on the judiciary committee - and the backdrop of the #MeToo movement, Kavanaugh's future as a Supreme Court justice is in uncharted territory. "The responsibility falls to us", Hatch tweeted, adding "We should proceed as planned". Democrats will use Monday's hearing as a political spectacle to coax Mr. Kavanaugh into looking defensive or angry, and to portray Republicans as anti-women. "And that's why, to be fair to both, we need to know what happened". It said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had forwarded to the White House a letter, evidently from Ford, describing alleged misconduct in the 1980s by Kavanaugh.

Also, in terms of differences, Professor Hill had quite a lot of corroborating evidence, in terms of witnesses to whom she had spoken about what was happening in the office with Clarence Thomas.

The lawyers for Ford predicted the hearing, as now scheduled, "would include interrogation by senators who appear to have made up their minds" that she is "mistaken" and mixed up.

Buffalo Bills player retires at halftime
Davis, 30, started and played the first half of the game before retiring at halftime with the Bills trailing 28-6. Not exactly a resounding endorsement for the Bills, and to add insult to injury they went on to lose 31-20.

Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, issued statements supporting Ford's concerns about the hearing.

"Nobody should be subject to threats and intimidation, and Dr. Ford is no exception". She said President George H.W. Bush had asked the FBI to investigate Anita Hill's allegations against Thomas. Dianne Feinstein of California, had a letter from Ford outlining the alleged attack.

Grassley said it isn't even 100 percent certain at this point whether Ford or Kavanaugh will testify first, though he is inclined to have Ford go first. "Only then should the chairman set a hearing date".

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing for Monday at which Kavanaugh will testify.

"That individual [who sent the letter] strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision". He stressed that Kavanaugh is eager to provide his testimony. He also hired outside investigators to look into complaints and introduced a resolution to expel Democratic Sen.

Tropical Storm Gordon brings hurricane warning to Gulf Coast
Geo Rodriguez made a decision to go for a walk on Hollywood Beach, north of Miami, on Monday morning and got caught in the storm. After moving northwest, the next landfall for Gordon will likely be somewhere in southeastern Louisiana or southern Mississippi.

A group of women who attended Holton-Arms have begun to circulate a letter of support for Ford.

"If Sen. Heller still has no reservations about confirming Judge Kavanaugh to a lifetime appointment on the nation's highest court, then he isn't listening to Nevadans", Rosen said in a statement Monday. Trump said Poland offered "much more than $2 billion to do this, and so we're looking at it", for security reasons and for economic reasons. Democrats, who seized on the development as justification to delay the high-stakes nomination, could energize complacent Republican voters if they're viewed as playing politics with the sensitive allegation.

Both have indicated they are willing to testify about the allegations. "These are serious allegations and Dr. Ford deserves to be heard", the Republican from Iowa said.

But their primary demand is one that Ford asked for her in her letter Tuesday night - that the Federal Bureau of Investigation conduct a full evaluation before any hearing is held. But President Donald Trump telegraphed earlier Monday that that schedule might slow. He told reporters at the White House: "If it takes a little delay, it will take a little delay". "I don't know about the other party, but Judge Kavanaugh is very anxious to do it".

"I feel so badly for him that he's going through this", the president said.
