Kavanaugh Says Misconduct Allegation Is 'Completely False'
Sep 20, 2018, 01:49
Christine Blasey Fordsaid via a lawyer she is ready to answer questions before the Senate Judiciary Committee on her allegation that a drunken Kavanaugh and one of his friends trapped her in a room and attempted to pull her clothes off at a high school party in 1982.
Ford went public with her allegation in an article published by The Washington Post on Sunday.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, suggested that Ford's attorney, Debra S. Katz, be allowed to question Kavanaugh at the hearing. "She should testify under oath and she should do it on Capitol Hill".
Katz explained on CNN Monday morning that when Ford sent the initial letter, she "made the request that Senator Feinstein treat her allegations confidentially, and Senator Feinstein agreed to do so". Russell Ford is a mechanical engineer and has worked for pharmaceutical and medical research companies.
And what is Professor Ford's case against Judge Kavanaugh? Both schools are in Washington's Maryland suburbs.
Given the seriousness of the charges, Ford must be heard out.
"We are looking at a lifetime appointment to the United States Supreme Court", she said. It says Ford's alleged experience is "all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton", adding that "many of us are survivors ourselves". The letter read, in part, "Many of us have remained close friends with him and his family over the years".
Earlier, Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer of NY said it would be "a deep insult to the women of America" if Grassley did not postpone Thursday's meeting. Her story is very credible and I believe her. Hill also told the committee that Thomas had once told her that he knew that "if [she] ever told anyone of his behavior, that it would ruin his career". He's openly speculated that she might have had false memories about the event, without acknowledging that it's at least as likely, if not more, that Kavanaugh could have blacked out himself during a drunken assault. When she tried to scream, "he put his hand over her mouth". The encounter ended when another man, named as Mike Judge, jumped on the two of them, and she was able to leave the bedroom. And I think to do that you have to go through this. Several White House officials said they trying to move forward. Both were students at private Montgomery County high schools at the time. She saw this as a very highly politicized and a very brutal process.
"This is a completely false allegation". "Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making the accusation until she identified herself yesterday". Karin Housley, who is running for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Democrat Tina Smith, said the process in place to vet the allegations is through the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Banks said Ford struggled "mightily" with the decision to alert lawmakers to the alleged incident. She later released a statementsaying that she was not trivializing sexual assault. "And there was going to be great personal risk to her and her family in doing so". "If she does want to be heard, she should do so promptly".
Both Maura Kane and Maura Fitzgerald signed on to that letter.
Conway stressed that letting Ford testify and Kavanaugh answer the charges "should not unduly delay the vote", even as Democrats on the committee demanded a delay to allow the FBI to investigate. "She will agree to participate in any proceedings that she's asked to participate in". Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, for some time. Thomas was confirmed on a 52-48 vote.
But Ford's accusation is coming to light in a different era.
In one of many memorable points, Nadal hit a almost ideal half volley, only to see Thiem beat him with a flawless crosscourt pass. Thiem did not relent, however, and kept hammering away from the baseline to earn a chance to serve for the third set up 5-4.
At least one person has died so far as a result of the storm - a child in Florida who was killed by a falling tree in Pensacola. Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp. on Tuesday evacuated employees and shut in several platforms in the eastern Gulf of Mexico.
She claimed Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, tried to remove her clothing and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. Kavanaugh says in the statement he "had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself".
