Trump says Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh is 'under assault'

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in before the Senate Judiciary Commi

The long answer: Sen.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee for the high court, of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers. Mr Judge has told the committee he does not recall the incident and does not want to speak publicly.

"On top of that, haggling over a single day that this credible victim of sexual assault says she needs to arrange for her security is preposterous". Susan Collins of ME and Jeff Flake of Arizona - said that unless Ford testified Monday they would move on to Kavanagh's vote. But the evidence against Kavanaugh is still thinner than that presented against the egregious Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore or numerous first major celebrities ensnared in #MeToo scandals.

"We continue to give her a lot of time".

How might that have to work?

"She's already come forward and it's now Congress" responsibility to order the FBI to investigate. The White House. Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI investigate these claims. "I think everything's going to be just fine".

The allegations come in the shadow of the powerful #Metoo movement against sexual harassment and assault, and echo the 1991 hearings for conservative Clarence Thomas to join the Supreme Court, when his former assistant Anita Hill accused him of repeated sexual harassment.

If Senate Republicans push through the nomination, those surveyed predict significant political repercussions. "

The rush to a hearing is unnecessary, and contrary to the Committee discovering the truth."

Linda Henigin, 48, also of Palo Alto, added: 'I believe we live in a bullying culture right now - President Trump's behavior is bullying. Over the course of his career in the federal government, he's undergone a total of six background checks. He denies the allegations. Kavanaugh then allegedly locked the door, put on loud music to muffle any sounds, and reportedly attempted to remove Ford's clothing.

The enclaves, which lie on the Mediterranean coast, have always been popular transit points for sub-Saharan African migrants. Altogether, around 77,500 migrants have reached Europe by sea illegally so far this year, according to the IMO.

White House officials remain confident Kavanaugh will be confirmed.

That isn't clear. What Feinstein has said is that Ford asked her to keep the letter confidential. "That means about two out of three go unreported".

Her whereabouts is now unknown with both the Palo Alto property and her $1m vacation home in Santa Cruz deserted when DailyMail.com visited this week. Having an outside counsel would seem too much like a trial, her attorney told the committee.

"Dr. Ford has asked me to let you know that she appreciates the various options you have suggested", Katz wrote. "Most importantly, I want the American people to be happy, because they're getting somebody that is great", he said.

Instead she has sought to have the FBI investigate the incident as part of its official background check on the nominee.

Or as a Justice Department statement phrased it earlier this week: "The FBI does not make any judgment about the credibility or significance of any allegation".

Republicans relented in the face of calls to have Kavanaugh and his accuser testify in public. "And she's talking about things that are very psychological in nature, even though it's her own personal and very hard experience, so that it might help her", Borys said.
