Chuck Grassley Releases Letter Christine Blasey Ford Sent To Dianne Feinstein

Brett Kavanaugh

Christine Blasey Ford will testify in an open hearing on Thursday at 10 a.m. about what she says was a sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at a party decades ago, her lawyers said on Sunday, even as negotiations continue over certain details.

The latest claims of impropriety during Kavanaugh's youth came as he was already facing a dramatic hearing where his testimony was to be weighed against that of a university professor who has separately accused him of assault.

Donald Trump's embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was hit by a second accusation of sexual misconduct Sunday, leaving Republicans scrambling to save a confirmation that until recently had seemed all but certain. The Senate Judiciary Committee's 11 Republicans - all men - have been seeking an outside female attorney to interrogate Ford.

Democrats called for the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's claims, a request that was unlikely to be met as President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have said it is unnecessary.

"We were told no decision has been made on this important issue, even though various senators have been dismissive of her account and should have to shoulder their responsibility to ask her questions", the attorneys for Ms Ford said.

Through her lawyer, the woman told the committee on Saturday that she does not know Kavanaugh and she didn't remember being at a party with him, emails show.

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec spoke along similar lines.

"I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there", she said.

Howard Walsh, Keyser's attorney, responded, "Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford".

The new claim came hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee agreed to a hearing on Thursday after almost a week of uncertainty over whether Christine Blasey Ford would appear to testify about her earlier claim against Mr Kavanaugh.

The New York Post quoted an unidentified "high-ranking source" as saying that the home was also serving as a "citizenship mill". Police said earlier that the suspect attacked two baby girls and a baby boy, leaving one of the girls in a serious condition.

The president's comments infuriated Democrats, dismayed many Republicans and risked further alienating women voters ahead of the November 6 mid-term elections, in which Democrats have a chance to win control of the House and perhaps the Senate.

Three former students, who were not independent eyewitnesses, recalled being told or discussing the incident in vague terms at the time.

Grilled on Good Morning America by ABC News Chief Correspondent George Stephanopopulos, Farrow insisted Deborah Ramirez came forward only after Senate Democrats "began looking" at the alleged incident with Kavanaugh.

The claim comes on the heels of weeks of controversy surrounding a claim from another woman, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, that Kavanaugh assualted her in high school.

Kavanaugh's confirmation would solidify conservative control of the Supreme Court and advance Trump's goal of moving the high court and the broader federal judiciary to the right.

In a statement to the magazine, Kavanaugh wrote: "This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen".

"Of course, we will attempt to evaluate these new claims", Foy said in a statement, adding that the committee's Republican staff only learned of Ramirez's allegation from the New Yorker article on Sunday evening. "This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanaugh".

Other Democrats are also upset that the allegations were kept quiet, but Feinstein felt she had no choice, according to the Associated Press.

Kavanaugh was questioned by committee staff last week. "Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this". Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. "Neither did (The New Yorker reporter)", Popp said.
