Trump aide says sex claim against Brett Kavanaugh should be heard

Who is Christine Blasey Ford the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault

"We want to get to the bottom of everything". And since that is settled in Hirono's mind, there's really no point in listening to anyone ask the accuser questions.

Hill endured a brutal assault on her personal reputation in hearings and in conservative media and the all-male Republicans on the committee ultimately backed Thomas. Thomas was ultimately confirmed, but only after a nasty televised hearing in which Hill faced pointed questions from Republican senators and the nominee said he was the victim of "a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks".

"Any Senate Democrat, hailing from a red or blue or purple state, is wise to think deeply about how the larger cultural shifts over the past year-plus should affect their political beliefs", said Tracy Sefl, a Democratic consultant in Chicago. Ford, whose identity was unknown until Sunday, had sent a letter to Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein in July.

Kavanaugh said he never attended the party in question and has a witness to back up his claim.

Donald Trump defended Brett Kavanaugh on Monday afternoon in a session with reporters in the wake of the sexual assault allegations launched at his SCOTUS nominee.

In fact, it has occurred only four times in the 20th century and seven times in the 19th, though some nominations - George W. Bush's 2005 selection of Harriet Miers, withdrawn 24 days later, following a storm of criticism from the Republican base - have died before votes in the Senate, the legislative body that alone has the power to approve presidential nominees for the judicial branch through a simple majority.

"I have no memory of this alleged incident".

Asked if the allegations being true would be disqualifying, Scott responded, "Well if the allegation is proven to be true, of course".

Kavanaugh spoke with the Judiciary panel's counsel Monday and gave a "clear and consistent" account of what happened 36 years ago, said a person who wasn't authorized to be identified while describing the process.

"This is mainly an opportunity to accommodate her".

While Kriti Verma and Roshmi Banik from the outhouse entered the show, Surbhi and Mital got eliminated on the basis of votes. Shivashish Mishra and Sourabh Patel, Romil Choudhary and Nirmal Singh were also welcomed on the show as the two jodiss.

The move forced Republicans to put off a planned committee vote for Thursday on Kavanaugh's nomination.

"The allegation from Professor Christine Blasey Ford is a serious one that deserves a full investigation", Sanders said in his statement.

Senate Minority Leader Schumer (D-NY) is also calling for an FBI investigation. "But, I'm going to relieve my producers". They can oppose the nominee without appearing to voters as if they are defying the president, strategists said.

The FBI has not commented on Trump's contention that the agency does not want to get involved.

She added that the Federal Bureau of Investigation "has the resources and know-how to conduct an objective, independent evaluation of these sensitive allegations with appropriately trained investigators".

Democrats say they want the FBI to investigate Ford's claims. Democrats, who want to delay the high-stakes nomination, risked energizing complacent Republican voters should they play politics with the sensitive allegations. But Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) said that the vote should not be held until senators hear more about the allegations. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said.

All three members - Sen. She is now willing to testify publicly.

Vulnerable Republican House incumbents have largely avoided the issue, which flared Monday in northern Virginia's suburbs, where GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock is fighting for her political survival.

They also said they've given her the option of a closed hearing.

"That's not what they do", Trump said. Ford said in an interview with the Washington Post Sunday that she was previously reluctant to come forward with her story because she believed that it would not affect his confirmation.
