GOP plans Senate hearing next week for Kavanaugh, accuser

19 September, 2018, 18:47
When Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, announced a hearing for next Monday to air a decades-old sexual-assault allegation against Supreme Courtnominee Brett Kavanaugh, it didn't end the debate over how the Senate should handle the charges. De Leon, who is challenging Feinstein in the November 6 election, said her actions amounted to a "failure of leadership".
"The hearing was scheduled for six short days from today and would include interrogation by Senators who appear to have made up their minds that she is "mistaken" and 'mixed up.' While no sexual assault survivor should be subjected to such an ordeal, Dr. Ford wants to cooperate with the Committee and with law enforcement officials".
She told the newspaper that he covered her mouth when she tried to scream for help.
Hewitt asked if there was any thought of having a female lawyer or someone like former Republican Sen.
Earlier on Monday, Republican leaders displayed no willingness to delay a Judiciary panel vote that Grassley had planned for this Thursday to advance the nomination. Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley had invited the woman-Dr. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, two moderates who have yet to announce their positions on Kavanaugh and aren't on the Judiciary Committee. The FBI has told CBS News that it has included the allegation in Kavanaugh's background file, and is not opening any additional probe at this time, although the president could direct the FBI to take further action. Ford says she managed to escape when Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, jumped onto the bed, sending all three of them tumbling. "But that's up to the Senate Judiciary Committee, they should decide the forum". "I'm not concerned about tanking the nomination", he said.
"We still haven't heard from Dr. Ford, so do they want to have the hearing or not?"
GOP senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker have publicly stated they have doubts about Kavanaugh, and conservatives have pointed out that both men despise President Trump and could be angling for an opportunity to derail the nominee and hurt Trump. He has denied the California college professor's accusation that he assaulted her at a party in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., when he was 17 and she was 15. But, I do not feel that she's accurate that it could have been Brett Kavanaugh. He declined to say whether Kavanaugh had offered to withdraw, dismissing the question as "ridiculous". The letter's contents leaked last week and Ford identified herself in an interview with the Washington Post published on Sunday. "It's been really striking the extent to which justices from across the jurisprudential spectrum have, during this confirmation process, expressed their concern about the confirmation process more generally, have expressed their regret that the confirmation process is not what it once was". It's not a ideal precedent, of course, but both in broad strokes and in specific areas, the allegations made by Anita Hill against Thomas mirror the accusation made by Christine Blasey Ford against Kavanaugh. The GOP goal is to have Kavanaugh confirmed by October 1, the start of the next Supreme Court term.
"Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women", Smyth's new letter continues.
"There are gaps in her memory", Cornyn said.
The point is this: Republican (and Democratic) senators should have as their first and only priority getting as close to the truth of the allegations made by Ford against Kavanaugh as possible.
She told the Post she went public because her name was beginning to leak out and her civic duty outweighed her desire for privacy.
