Yes, the FBI Actually Has Investigated Allegations Like Christine Blasey Ford’s Before

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin: Kavanaugh ‘Getting Confirmed’ if Accuser Doesn’t Testify

How well did the women know him?

Anita Hill - whose allegation against Clarence Thomas has drawn endless parallels with the Ford-Kavanaugh controversy - says the accuser must not be hurried.

"Brett wouldn't do that in a million years".

"It's impossible to take this process seriously", Feinstein said. In response to my invitation, however, you wrote yesterday that "an FBI investigation of the incident should be the first step in addressing her allegations".

Grassley said the panel plans to call only two witnesses, Ford and Kavanaugh, and not another man, Mark Judge, whom Ford says was in the same bedroom during the alleged attack. They did not hang out with her during free period. The letter and its roster of supporters seemed to come at supersonic speed and out of the blue.

There is some dispute over who actually said, "The ends justify the means", but there is no ambiguity over its meaning. The lawyers argue that some senators appear to have already decided that they believe Kavanaugh instead of Ford.

Grassley added that his staff would be willing to speak to Ford "at a time and place convenient to her".

Sen. Claire McCaskill says she will vote against Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, but the Missouri Democrat who is facing re-election in November says it is not because of allegations of sexual misconduct swirling around the nominee.

Sen. Johnson says panel should hear from Kavanaugh accuser
The delay makes it increasingly hard for Kavanaugh to win approval by October 1, when the new session of the Supreme Court begins. Trump called Kavanaugh "an outstanding intellect", and he assailed Democrats for not bringing up the assault question sooner.

If all three of them met her, and they don't deny meeting her, it was nearly certainly at something the scientists would call "a party".

One worked with him at a summer camp. "The hearing questions need to have a frame and the investigation is the best frame for that - a neutral investigation, that can pull together the facts, create a record, so that the senators can draw on the information they receive to develop their question". Katz did not respond to Reuters requests for comment. The AP left messages for all 65.

On Wednesday, Republicans, who have rebuffed Ford's request for Federal Bureau of Investigation intervention, urged Ford to accept their invitation to testify and signaled they'd forge ahead with Kavanaugh's confirmation. Kavanaugh denies the allegations, which would be beyond the statute of limitations under Maryland law. As of this afternoon, Feinstein still hadn't given Grassley a complete copy of Ford's July letter.

California professor Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party when they were both in high school.

But Kavanaugh's unwavering denial amid demands that the hearing be delayed have helped consolidate GOP support for the embattled nominee.

She said she contacted friends, who contacted more friends, and they had 65 signatures by the next morning.

"The responsibility falls to us", Hatch tweeted. "I really would want to see what she has to say".

Some of the signers are conservative, such as podcaster and former Republican National Committee spokeswoman Virginia Hume.
