Second woman accuses Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

Battle lines drawn for Senate showdown on Trump court nominee

Republicans made a counteroffer on Friday of holding the hearing on Wednesday, and having Ford testify before Kavanaugh. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, rejected. "Despite actual threats to her safety and to her life, Dr. Ford believes it is important for Senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her".

Judge refuted Ford's claim in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, writing "I have no memory of this alleged incident".

The official claimed it was a "clever way" to continue negotiations "without committing to anything".

Should any Republicans decide to oppose Kavanaugh, they will seemingly be siding with the American public. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss private conversations. John Cornyn of Texas, a member of the committee.

In an email to the committee, lawyers for Ford said that while she has agreed to "provide first-hand knowledge of Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct", they are disappointed "with the leaks and bullying that have tainted the process". Senate Democrats, meanwhile, say that no matter what Republicans do, they intend to question Blasey themselves.

There are only two people who can officially call off Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, FiveThirtyEight reports.

If Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed, he could bring a rightward shift to the Supreme Court for decades, and the battle is playing out amid a divided country.

Patience among Republicans was running thin. The GOP has faced enormous pressure from its base of conservative leaders and voters to swiftly approve Mr Kavanaugh, who would become the second of Trump's nominees to sit on the nation's highest court.




Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said of Christine Blasey Ford to ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday. The panel has delayed its vote on whether to advance Kavanaugh's confirmation to the full Senate in order to hear Blasey's testimony.

Ford's lawyers also asked the committee to subpoena other witnesses. In a tweet aimed at Kavanaugh shortly before midnight, Grassley said he was giving them additional time. Her family has been moved out of their home. If she did not comply, the committee would go ahead with a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination on Monday. "It's not my normal approach to b indecisive".

"Senate Republicans have predetermined the outcome of that - this will be a "he said, she says" by taking that away", Sen.

Lawyer Michael Bromwich has joined Katz's legal team.

When it comes to the truth of the accusation, I can understand why people might have a hunch one way (evidence of a pattern of alcohol abuse among Kavanaugh's social circle, lack of unbelievable details in accusation), or the other (no other accusers, extensive testimony of Kavanaugh's good treatment of women). That means the new Supreme Court term, which begins on October 1, will likely begin one justice short.

The lawyer acknowledged to CNN that Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford's.

Overall, Americans are divided on whether the Senate should vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, with almost four in 10 who believe it's too early to say. "So I thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate and wrong". Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, who hasn't declared support for Kavanaugh, called the remark "appalling".

Patrick J. Smyth also contradicted Ford, issuing a statement: "I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh toward women".
