Trump asks why Kavanaugh’s sexual assault accuser didn’t tell Federal Bureau of Investigation sooner

Bulbul Gupta, 40, said continuing the confirmation process for Kavanaugh would "break trust in Congress".

Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo (EH'-shoo) told The Associated Press on Friday accuser Christine Blasey (BLAH'-zee) Ford "has an inner strength". Kavanaugh has denied all parts of the allegation.

Ford, now 51, delivered the information in a letter to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Sen. Feinstein - the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee - eventually turned the letter over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In one obstacle that must be overcome, attorney Debra Katz's email said a hearing Monday is "not possible" and that scheduling it that day "is arbitrary in any event". He told evangelical activists at the annual Values Voter conference the Senate will "plow right through".

Can the Senate Judiciary Committee enlist the FBI to investigate the claims of sexual assault brought by an accuser against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, nominee to the Supreme Court?

Collins, a swing vote on the nomination, said the California college professor needs to testify so senators can assess her credibility. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

That Ford revealed her story in couples therapy six years ago and that there apparently exists a psychologist's notes corroborating this makes it less likely she invented the charges to derail Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, though the federal judge's ascent to the nation's highest court was reportedly something she was anxious about.

"I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!" he tweeted.

The president previously had avoided naming Ford or plainly casting doubt on her account.

-She wants to the panel to subpoena Mark Judge, the other person Ford says was in the room when Kavanaugh allegedly attacked her. Judge has said he never saw Kavanaugh behave as Ford has described.

Minnesotans were split on Kavanaugh even before allegations
Trump called Kavanaugh "one of the finest people" anyone has ever known in response to reporters' question about him. Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) said that the vote should not be held until senators hear more about the allegations.

The foreign ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang , criticized "U.S. threats, intimidation and blackmail". Kevin Hassett, the chairman of Trump's Council of Economic Advisers, said he expected that U.S.

A new USA Today poll finds that Brett M. Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination is under water amid accusations of sexual assault, with Americans opposing Senate confirmation of him 40 to 31. They fear that without a shared set of facts, Republicans would simply move quickly after the testimony to confirm Kavanaugh.

The stakes are high.

US President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is under scrutiny after an accusation of rape during his high school years.

Conway told CNN on Friday, "Let's not conflate the larger #MeToo movement with whatever did nor did not happen in the summer of 1982".

The biggest political story of this year's elections may end up being that we all underestimated just how deeply alienated the female electorate might grow from President Trump - and, possibly, the Republican Party as well.

But they're eager to avoid the spectacle of 11 Republican men cross-examining a woman who says she's been victimized by a man.

Trump's tweets came as lawyers for Ford continued negotiations with Republicans about conditions under which she might testify next week in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Christine Blasey Ford may testify against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after all.

While Ford has some public support, she has also faced attacks on her character, death threats and has been forced out of her home.
