GRASSLEY SPEAKS: Senate Judiciary Chairman Releases Kavanaugh Statement

Kavanaugh accuser said to be willing to testify before US Senate committee

Kavanaugh, who was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Donald Trump, was spotted at the White House on Monday. "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing".

Ford said she was able to escape Kavanaugh and his friend, whom she identified as Mark Judge.

At the White House, Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, told reporters, "She should not be insulted".

According to a report by the online political news magazine Politico, three sources "close to the White House" now expect Trump to "go after" Ford, as he has done with women who have accused him and other men of sexual assault in the past, rather than reconsider his nomination of Kavanaugh. But, feeling that the emotional turmoil would be too great and would have little effect on the nomination, Ford initially declined to go forward.

In the interview, Ford says she didn't reveal what had happened until 2012, when she and her husband sought couples therapy. And he called a question about whether Kavanaugh should withdraw "ridiculous". Weinstein denies the allegations. But some Republicans, not to mention Democrats, have expressed they want to hear from Ford first, and the Senate is out of session Wednesday for the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur.

Kavanaugh has said he was not at the party where the incident was alleged to have occurred, according to a White House official.

The accuser, Christine Blassey Ford, is "willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth", her attorney Debra Katz told NBC on Monday.

Judge denied the allegation in an interview with The Weekly Standard on Friday.

Kenyans Amos Kipruto finished second in 2:06:23 and Wilson Kipsang was third in 2:06:48. Kipchoge had covered 40km in a time of 1:56:32, a whooping 57 seconds of the record.

Martha McKenna, a Democratic strategist from Maryland, said by phone that the Kavanaugh allegations are "just another layer to an already highly motivated electorate". According to United States media, some Republicans on the panel also said the vote should be delayed until the committee can hear Ford's testimony. "He has been widely supported by those who have dealt with him, his classmates, his colleagues, his clerks, lawyers, legal scholars", Blunt said.

The 10 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee also on Monday sent a letter to Sen.

Republicans say the allegations have already cast a shadow over Kavanaugh but that it does not appear to be enough to change the votes in the narrowly divided 51-49 Senate. A senior official said Kavanaugh did not meet with Trump, who himself faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct that emerged during the 2016 presidential election. Feinstein acknowledged her knowledge of the accusation last week, but kept Ford's identity private until the Sunday Post article. Sen.

The committee's chairman, Iowa Sen. Lindsey Graham, that allowing this woman to be heard in sworn testimony, allowing Judge Kavanaugh to be heard in sworn testimony about these specific allegations, would be added to the very considerable mountain of evidence and considerations that folks will have when they weigh whether or not to vote for Judge Kavanaugh to be on the Supreme Court.

Grassley said the standard procedure would be to conduct follow-up telephone calls with Kavanaugh and Ford, and that he meant to work with the senior Democrat on the committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein, to schedule the calls but that Democrats have refused to cooperate. More Americans told Gallup they believed Thomas - 48% - than Hill - 29% - after her testimony.

A Republican not on the committee, Bob Corker of Tennessee, said the vote should be postponed until the committee heard from Ford. Later that day, the FBI announced it would not open an investigation.

McCaskill's GOP opponent, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, said in a statement late Monday that he was concerned that "Feinstein and the Democrats waited until the last hour to bring this 30-year old allegation to light".
