Chuck Grassley: Kavanaugh accuser has not yet agreed to testify

Washington DC. Sessions called the question-and-answer session with reporters to highlight his department's fight to reduce violent crime

Lawyers for California college professor Christine Blasey Ford said Tuesday she wants the FBI to investigate her claims before she appears at a Senate hearing.

"It's a process, and we all feel - speaking for all of the Republicans - we feel that we want to go through this process and we want to give everybody a chance to say what they have to say".

U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono didn't mince words Tuesday when discussing sex assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - and how the Senate Judiciary Committee should handle them. Thomas denied Hill's account and was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Judge says he won't appear before the committee. On Wednesday morning, he told reporters that the "FBI really doesn't do that" when asked if he believes the bureau should open a probe into the Kavanaugh sexual assault allegations.

The risks of a public hearing starring the all-male lineup of Republicans on the committee could be high. "Would you look into it?' of course they do", Leahy said. Kavanaugh has called Ford's allegation "completely false". "This is not a man that deserves this".

The FBI was involved originally since it handles part of the background checks for presidential nominations of Supreme Court justices.

Republicans are seeking to ensure Kavanaugh receives Senate approval this month, before the Supreme Court resumes deliberations October 1. "If they wanted to be, I would certainly do that", the president said.

"He's not happy, he's upset", Kennedy said.

"This incident did happen", the letter said.

"In our view, Ford is providing a credible account about a painful, disgusting incident that occurred many years ago and which she hoped she would never have to talk about to anyone again, let alone the whole country", they concluded. "Only then should the chairman set a hearing date", the Senator said. Grassley said on radio's "Hugh Hewitt Show".

Prof Ford, a psychology lecturer in California, has accused Judge Kavanaugh of drunkenly trying to remove her clothing in 1982 when they were both teenagers in a Washington DC suburb. "What about other witnesses like Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge?".

At the 2016 Olympics, he issued Andy Murray with a code violation when he thought the reigning champion had called him "stupid". Tennis is a young person's sport, so there is no logical reason why Williams should have been in the finals of the U.S.

Those demands are "not about finding the truth, but delaying the process until after the midterm elections", Graham, a Judiciary panel member, said in a statement. No more circus. To clarify my post: I do not have first hand knowledge of the incident that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford mentions, and I stand by my support for Christine.

Prof Ford's legal team has declined the Senate's offer to testify.

Last week, the US President's candidate said he "categorically and unequivocally" denies the allegations. "There are gaps in her memory", AP quoted Cornyn as saying. "I did not know her personally but I remember her".

"Now this is really what #MeToo is all about, if you think about it", said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, detailing the allegations. Women knew about it happening in the workplace, but it wasn't a big issue. "That's sort of the first thing that happens, it's the woman's fault". But he said pointedly, "Monday is her opportunity".

Democrats have pushed back on the hearing.

Trump said on Wednesday that the situation surrounding the Supreme Court nominee is "hurting" his life, and that it's unfair to him and his family.

However, the Republicans were careful not to sound insensitive in the case as they openly supported the upcoming Monday's hearing against the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Women are watching", said Patty Murray, D-Wash., who came to the Senate in a 1992 election soon after the Hill episode. But I can only say this: He is such an outstanding man.

Trump has already rejected the idea of bringing in the Federal Bureau of Investigation to reopen its background check of Kavanaugh. Chuck Grassley, asked for it.

Ford, on the other hand, has demanded an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry before she testifies her charges at a US Senate hearing scheduled for next Monday.
