Democratic Senator Feinstein urges Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of Kavanaugh allegations

MSNBC panel slaps down Feinstein’s ‘cheap last minute trick’ against Kavanaugh

A woman who had anonymously accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the early 1980s made a decision to go public with her accusations and provided details of the alleged incident, the Washington Post reported on Sunday. According to Kavanaugh and Judge, Ford's story is categorically and unequivocally false.

The existence of the letter and some details of its contents became public in recent days, however. She also said she wants the FBI to investigate the matter before the Senate advances Kavanaugh's nomination.

Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), a potentially key swing vote who has not announced whether he will support Kavanaugh's nomination, said he hopes to meet with the judge and intends to raise what he called the "very serious allegation" with him if they are able to speak. Dianne Feinstein. The magazine said the woman has declined to reveal her identity. "I think it makes us look bad", he added. "It could maybe been cleared up". "I did not do this back in high school or at any time", his statement said. Republicans gave no indication Sunday that they would do so.

The accuser coming forward publicly could put new pressure on Senate Republicans to at least review the accusations before proceeding to a Judiciary Committee vote, which is scheduled for Thursday afternoon. The late entrance of the letter to the Kavanaugh pre-confirmation hearings drew cries of foul play from Kavanaugh, who denied the allegations, and his supporters. He said he has not seen the letter and plans to seek more information about the timing of its release.

What to do? Unless the leadership believes this woman, it should press ahead with the confirmation process.

"What do they want us to do?" he asked. "A lawyer close to the White House" tells Politico not only that Kavanaugh will not be withdrawn, but that his confirmation represents a higher cause: "No way, not even a hint of it". In defense, Kavanaugh and Judge have offered only a blanket denial.

"Senator Feinstein's had the letter since July", he said on "Fox News Sunday". She claims that, while in high-school, Kavanaugh and Mark Judge corralled her in a bedroom. In addition, she signed a letter denouncing President Trump's border policy. The letter was also shared with Feinstein in July.

Towards the end of the broadcast, Rogan lit up a large marijuana-and-tobacco-filled cigarette and offered it to Musk. Marijuana is legal for medical and recreational use in California, where the interview took place.

On Wednesday, Feinstein agreed to brief the other Democrats on the committee with no staff present, according to the New Yorker.

Hawaii Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono and Connecticut Democratic Sen.

"Sexual assault, in high school, from an anonymous source?"

He said she used Kavanaugh's last name and voiced concern that he - then a federal judge - might one day be nominated to the Supreme Court.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that he would like to have Kavanaugh confirmed by October 1, the start of the Supreme Court's new term.

Feinstein's staff initially told other Democratic members' offices that the incident took place too long ago to be brought up in public, and that Feinstein had "taken care of it".

Republicans are trying to push the nomination through before the midterm elections in November, when their slim 51-49 hold over the Senate will be at risk.
