Kellyanne Conway says Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford should be heard

Flake has always been a member of the anti-Trump brigade among Congress members, according to Politico.

"This is a completely false allegation", Kavanaugh said in a statement Monday morning.

If either President Trump or Kavanaugh himself were to withdraw his nomination, it is unlikely that a new nominee would be confirmed prior to this November's midterm elections.

The White House indicated Monday that it is continuing to stand by Kavanaugh but that it expects Ford will offer testimony to the Judiciary Committee. All 10 Democrats on the committee signed a letter urging Grassley to delay the vote.

Johnson is not a member of the Judiciary Committee but said it is "appropriate" that the panel listen to both the accuser as well as Kavanaugh. He is an outstanding intellect and outstanding judge respected by everybody.

He called Kavanaugh "somebody very special", who "never even had a little blemish on his record". "If it takes a little delay, it'll take a little delay".

Leahy said in a statement that the "integrity of our nation's highest court is on the line" and "we can not brush aside these extraordinarily serious allegations in an unseemly rush to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to a lifetime seat".

Katz said Ford, who revealed her identity Sunday in an interview with The Washington Post after weeks of refusing to do so, believes "she would have been raped" by Kavanaugh had he not been drunk.

According to multiple sources, Kavanaugh also has hired Beth Wilkinson, of the law firm Wilkinson Walsh and Eskovitz, to be his attorney. Her campaign did not immediately return a message seeking comment Monday.

Trump's fellow Republicans control the Senate by only a narrow margin, meaning any defections could sink the nomination and deal a major setback to Trump, who has been engaged in a so-far successful effort since becoming president past year to move the Supreme Court and broader federal judiciary to the right. But the president is predicting that it will "work out very well".

Collins said that in a telephone conversation with Kavanaugh on Friday he was "absolutely emphatic" that the assault didn't occur. According to Wigdor, it's important that the lawyer working with Ford knows all of the facts before the hearing - good or bad.

Hope SC ruling on gay sex boosts efforts to eliminate stigma
Many activists like Suri say that gay marriage and equal inheritance rights for gay couples will be the ultimate equality prize. Still, being gay is seen as shameful in much of the country. "Now the bigger task is to bring about acceptance in society".

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018, for the third day of his confirmation hearing to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Asked on CNN whether Ford would be willing to testify publicly before the Judiciary Committee, her lawyer Debra Katz said: "The answer's yes".

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, said in an email to *The Daily Iowan* she is confident in the investigation process led by Grassley.

"I think she's mistaken", the 84-year-old Republican said of Ford.

Ford went public with her allegation in an article published by The Washington Post on Sunday. Ford alleged that at this party, she was pushed into a bedroom and an inebriated Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed while his friend Mark Judge was watching and laughing. Kavanaugh has flatly denied the allegation. "I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone".

Grassley criticized Democratic senators, including Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Sen.

"Her feeling was that Feinstein honored request to keep it confidential" and she "feels grateful to her", Brown said.

In a statement released by Sen. "Feinstein did everything to protect the privacy of our mutual constituent". Ford provided portions of the therapist's notes to the paper, which described an incident without mentioning Kavanaugh by name.

And in an unusually personal swipe, Schumer said McConnell was showing "unmitigated gall" to oppose delaying Kavanaugh's nomination after refusing for most of 2016 to consider President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the court after Antonin Scalia died.
