Kavanaugh's Accuser Has Not Responded to Senate Requests to Testify

19 September 2018

Ford, a liberal professor at Palo Alto University, went public with her sexual assault claims Sunday in an interview with the Washington Post and has indicated that she would be willing to testify. He added that he was willing to address the allegation in front of the Senate committee.

"I would like to start by saying unequivocally, uncategorically, that I deny each and every single allegation against me", Thomas said. "He stands ready to testify tomorrow if the Senate is ready to hear him", White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement Monday.

Meanwhile, a Republican US Senate committee chairman has said that Ms Ford has not yet agreed to appear at apublic hearing set for next Monday. Other people at the party could testify about whether the party was similar to how Ford described it and whether Kavanaugh was there. At the time an all-male Senate Judiciary Committee aggressively questioned Hill in televised hearings, cast doubt on her accusations and ultimately confirmed Thomas to the court. "Ford recalled that she did not remember if Kavanaugh and Judge were behind her or already upstairs but claimed that they were 'stumbling drunk".

Kavanaugh, who was nominated by President Donald Trump, has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Schumer said Democrats want more than two witnesses, including Mark Judge, who Ford has said was a Kavanaugh friend present during the alleged assault. He's an outstanding intellect, an outstanding judge respected by everybody, never had even a little blemish on his record.

"We want to give everybody a chance to say what they have to say", Trump said.

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the panel, led a number of Democrats calling for a delay in the vote. "She's surely prepared. She hired a lawyer, I understand, back in August". He declined to say whether Kavanaugh had offered to withdraw, dismissing the question as "ridiculous". Richard Blumenthal of CT, said staging the hearing without the FBI investigation would make it a "sham".

A Judiciary committee statement Sunday accused Democrats of hiding Ford's allegations until the eve of the committee vote.

Republicans, some of whom see the allegations as a stalling tactic by Democrats, have been pushing to confirm Kavanaugh before November's mid-term elections when they could lose control of the Senate.

Ford claims that at a party when both were teenagers in the early 1980s, an intoxicated Kavanaugh trapped her in a bedroom, pinned her on a bed, tried to undress her and forced his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. What about individuals who were previously told about the incident?

Details of the allegations have trickled out since the committee's ranking member, Sen.

According to multiple sources, Kavanaugh has hired Beth Wilkinson, of the law firm Wilkinson Walsh and Eskovitz, to be his attorney. The therapist's notes were reviewed by The Washington Post and met Ford's recount with several discrepancies. Judge told the New York Times that Kavanaugh was a "brilliant student" who loved sports and was not "into anything insane or illegal".

"The party of Bill Clinton and Keith Ellison are trying to lecture Americans", she said. Ford is saying that these were note taking mistakes on the part of her therapist.

"She believes that but for his inebriation and his inability to take her clothes off, he would have raped her", Katz said.

Earlier Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee moved to postpone the confirmation vote for Kavanaugh, which had been scheduled for Thursday.

Democrats have rejected the GOP process and are refusing to participate in any committee phone interviews.

As both sides contemplated the hearing, Republicans were thinking through the optics of a nationally televised showdown between Kavanaugh and his accuser at which all 11 GOP Judiciary Committee members are men.

"Red-state senators are not going to win re-election by running against Trump", Conant said.

Separately, one official says there will be intense internal pushback inside the White House if the President or aides go negative against the victim.
