Graham open to having Kavanaugh accuser go before committee

Washington Post: Kavanaugh accuser comes forward

If Brett Kavanaugh were on trial for sexual assault, all he'd need do is demonstrate reasonable doubt about the charges being made against him.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who chairs the judiciary committee, said in a statement Monday that he's looking for a way that lawmakers can hear from Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, "in an appropriate, precedented, and respectful manner".

Ford claims Kavanaugh drunkenly pushed her into a bedroom during a small party at a house in Montgomery County, Md., in 1982, when he was 17 and she was 15.

"She believes that but for his inebriation and his inability to take her clothes off, he would have raped her", Katz said. From across the room a very drunken [Judge] said mixed words to Kavanaugh ranging from "go for it" to "stop".

The American people had to wait for that information to be leaked to the media before Kavanaugh's accuser, Ford, came forward with her allegations for the first time in 36 years.

The White House's only comment Sunday was the re-send to the Post Judge Kavanaugh's statement from last week that "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation".

The woman who claims Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers was identified Sunday by the Washington Post. Kavanaugh has responded in a statement Monday by saying he is also willing to testify under oath.

According to the book described "his own blackout drinking and a culture of partying among students at his high school, renamed in the book 'Loyola Prep.'" Although Kavanaugh is not mentioned in the book, according to The Post, a reference about a beach party references "Bart O'Kavanaugh", who "puked in someone's vehicle the other night" and "passed out on his way back from a party". But that approach failed to satisfy some senators. A positive vote would set up a debate following by a vote in the full Senate. "For me, we can't vote until we hear more".

"Sarah Sanders is echoing a lot of the reaction of a lot of evangelical Christians when I asked them how they support President Trump", Alcindor said.

Every 91 days - 1,387 orbits - ICESat-2 will return to its starting point and begin repeating its initial observations. It revealed that sea ice was thinning, and ice cover was disappearing from coastal areas in Greenland and Antarctica.

"I agree with Sen". "There's a lot of information we don't know and the Federal Bureau of Investigation should have the time it needs to investigate this new material".

"Given the late addendum to the background file and revelations of Dr. Ford's identity, Chairman Grassley is actively working to set up such follow-up calls with Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford ahead of Thursday's scheduled vote", the spokesman, Taylor Foy, said. "If the committee is to hear from Ms. Ford, it should be done immediately so the process can continue as scheduled".

A lawyer who's close to the White House told Politico the president is not considering withdrawing Kavanaugh's nomination. Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation" (side note: "this is what patriotism really looks like).

At least one Republican member of the Judiciary Committee, Senator Jeff Flake, told the Post on Sunday that Ford "must be heard" and urged the panel not to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination until it can hear from her. Republicans hold only an 11-10 majority on the committee, so Flake's vote could make a difference. But faced with a growing Me Too movement, they are also sensitive about appearances.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has completed its hearings on Kavanaugh and plans to vote on Thursday on his nomination. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth.

"However, I grew up hearing stories like hers, and believe her completely". "It was something that she struggled with mightily".

Not to mention, we don't need to rely exclusively on Ford's testimony to paint a picture of Brett Kavanaugh's youth as that of a drunken misogynist, further calling into question whether this was an isolated incident.

The woman who went public, Christine Blasey Ford, previously described the alleged incident in a letter to Democratic Sen. Over the past few months, Ford has felt pressure on a personal level to share her story and has grappled with the idea, which partly prompted the letter, the source said.
