Brett Kavanaugh accuser offers to testify to Senate

Brett Kavanaugh accuser offers to testify to Senate

President Donald Trump, in a series of tweets Friday, deviated from his previously measured comments about the woman who has accused his Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanugh of sexual assault, claiming that if the attack she alleges "was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities". After my first ten cases, the ache in my stomach would come like clockwork as I sat down to open a sexual assault file for the first time.

Christine Blasey Ford's lawyer says her client will not appear on Monday, as senators proposed, but might do so next week on "terms that are fair".

Christine Blasey Ford may testify against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after all, her attorney said Thursday, breathing new life into the prospect of a dramatic Senate showdown next week over Ford's accusation that he assaulted her when both were in high school. "I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!" wrote Mr. Trump, who had been uncharacteristically restrained in prior days. Now the party holds a slim 51 vote majority, raising the stakes for confirming Kavanaugh. They also pushed to hear publicly from any other identified witnesses and character witnesses for both Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh.

Equally troubling is the White House's failure to direct the FBI to investigate Dr Ford's accusation.

Trump's change of strategy comes as Ford's reps have begun to negotiate terms of her appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee. "They've delayed it a week already".

Kavanaugh flatly denied Ford's allegations: "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation".

The other women who spoke at the event described Kavanaugh as a family man who coaches a girls' basketball team, tutors children, goes to neighborhood barbeques and attends church.

Meanwhile, some are not so sure they can trust Collins to vote against Kavanaugh, despite her latest remarks. Dianne Feinstein stating that he believed Ford should have the opportunity to testify in a hearing.

The timetable brought cries of protest from Democrats, who have called on the FBI to investigate the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from California, and to expand the number of witnesses who would be called beyond Ford and Kavanaugh.

The Republicans have manufactured a "he said / she said" standoff and are using their own handiwork to make good on a promise to stack the Supreme Court with conservative judges. "It's a totally artificial deadline they're setting for themselves", Colbert said. The White House. Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI investigate these claims.

The Democrats, all of whom served as prosecutors or state attorneys general, noted that President George H.W. Bush asked the FBI to investigate after law professor Anita Hill raised allegations of sexual harassment against Judge Clarence Thomas in 1991.

"We got a little hiccup here with the Kavanaugh nomination, we'll get through this and we'll get off to the races", he said in a call with fellow Republicans, the Nevada Independent reports.
