Trump Says It's 'Very Hard For Me To Imagine' Kavanaugh Accusations

They say they want to give Ford, now a professor at Palo Alto University, every chance to tell her story. But it's likely never had a stretch of alumni achieving national prominence as it has during the Trump administration. "Is this really what America wants in its next Supreme Court Justice?"

But Judge Brett Kavanaugh made a decision to share his personal connections with the District of Columbia-based university. A lot of them had attended local all-girl high schools when Kavanaugh was at Georgetown Prep.

Miranda was tweeting a response to actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus regarding the letter signed by alumnae of the Holton Arms school in support of Ford when she made the claim. But, he said he hopes Ford will appear at the hearing. "Many of us are survivors ourselves", states that letter.

Fact is, Feinstein (while claiming she was only respecting Ford's request for anonymity) sat on this until Democrats desperately needed something - anything - to sidetrack Kavanaugh's confirmation. "Claire McCaskill says she will "set them aside" when she decides how to vote on the judge's nomination", Schmitt wrote on Twitter.

Judge has said he has no recollection of an assault. One of her fellow classmates to do so was Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the actress of Seinfeld and Veep fame. "100 Kegs or Bust". In his yearbook, which was obtained by W9USA in Maryland, Kavanaugh's senior year entry lists, "Keg City Club (Treasurer) - 100 Kegs or Bust", as one of his activities and also refers to "the Devil's Triangle", a threesome between two men and a woman. But in his 1997 book "Wasted: Tales of a GenX Drunk", he makes passing reference to someone with a strikingly similar name. He wrote then of "an ambiguous middle ground, where the woman seems interested and indicates, whether verbally or not, that the man needs to prove himself to her". Judge replies: "Yeah. He passed out on his way back from a party". He told reporters that he feels "so badly for" Kavanaugh and that "this is not a man that deserves this".

Conservatives criticized Warren, and other outlets who spread the unedited clip, for taking Kavanaugh out of context. "He was one of the more responsible ones in the group".

He also defended longtime pal Kavanaugh, saying: 'I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford described'.

"Guess who is perpetrating all of these kinds of actions?" "He just wasn't that guy".

The Washington Post's Glenn Kessler said that "it's pretty clear from the context that he was quoting the views of the plaintiffs rather than offering a personal view". He said Kavanaugh always treated his female peers with respect. However, the Department of Justice has said in regard to this topic that "the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not make any judgment about the credibility or significance of any allegation", so it is not clear that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would have the jurisdiction to get involved.

Republicans responded that reopening the investigation is up to the White House and they are sticking with their plans for a Monday hearing - with or without Ford's participation.
