Kavanaugh Accuser Open To Testifying About Sexual Assault Allegations

US President Donald Trump defended Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a

Third, as long as Ford's counsel want to talk about regular, independent investigations, we should note that there is not a police organization in America that would entertain her allegation, in light of the lapse of time and the long-ago exhaustion of the statute of limitations. Susan Collins, a key Republican swing vote.

She asked Kavanaugh, "Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made any unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?" as well as "Have you ever faced discipline or entered into a settlement related to this kind of conduct?"

By refusing to call Mark Judge as a witness, and refusing to direct the FBI to investigate, Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the president are in lockstep.

Sen. Chuck Grassley had set a 10 AM ET deadline this morning by which time Ford had to notify the committee as to whether she will testify by Monday's arbitrary deadline which.

Trump's Friday tweets contrasted to comments earlier in the week when he said he Ford should be heard, even if it meant a delay in the confirmation process.

Panel chairman Chuck Grassley and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have said Monday would be her chance to testify.

The president demanded that Congress "take the vote" on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination whether or not Christine Blasey Ford testifies to Congress.

"Mr. Kavanaugh's record does not demonstrate a commitment to legal precedent that protects working families", Walker and Mallott said in the joint statement, remarks that could put political pressure on Murkowski.

The first episode of Queen of the World airs on Tuesday ( September 25 ) on ITV . Meghan , 37, and Harry , 34, will depart Britain for a 16-day official tour.

Taylor Foy, spokesman for Republicans on the panel, said that Grassley "will consult with his colleagues on the committee". The answer simple: Republican members of the Judiciary Committee want to believe Judge, not Dr Ford. The only relevance of this alleged incident is to a Senate function, so it is for the Senate committee to decide how to proceed.

David Ludwig, a lawyer who specializes in defamation, said that Whelan's tweetstorm "absolutely" met the standard for a libel case involving a private citizen like the former Georgetown Prep student named. Judge has told the committee he does not recall the incident and does not want to speak publicly. "Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday", Kavanaugh said Monday. "I continue to want a hearing as soon as possible, so that I can clear my name". So, it's unclear why the White House is ride or die on Brett Kavanaugh. 'But they've delayed it a week, and they have to get on with it'.

Ford has contended that at a house party in a Maryland suburb of Washington, a drunken Kavanaugh tried undressing her and stifling her cries on a bed before she fled.

"He is a fine, fine person", Trump said of Kavanaugh, who is facing allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman 36 years ago.

Other groups involved in Kavanaugh's confirmation effort have also distanced themselves from Whelan's tweets.

Although inferring otherwise, Whelan said he's not insinuating that the man he publicly named and shared photos of did anything wrong, or that Ford is now "mistakenly remembering" this man as Kavanaugh.

Republicans, in turn, are accusing Democrats of attempting to force a delay until after the November midterms, where Democrats are hoping to take control of the Senate.
