Brett Kavanaugh's Accuser: What We Know About Christine Blasey Ford

Kavanaugh accuser said to be willing to testify before US Senate committee

Lindsey Graham, that allowing this woman to be heard in sworn testimony, allowing Judge Kavanaugh to be heard in sworn testimony about these specific allegations, would be added to the very considerable mountain of evidence and considerations that folks will have when they weigh whether or not to vote for Judge Kavanaugh to be on the Supreme Court.

Ford alleged in an earlier Post story Sunday that Kavanaugh and a friend - both "stumbling drunk" - corralled her in a bedroom.

"No one in their right mind regardless of their motives would want to inject themselves into this process and face the kind of violation that she will be subjected to by those who want this nominee to go though".

In fact, during the 2016 presidential election campaign, 19 women accused Trump himself of sexual misconduct or sexual assault, as the Inquisitr reported. Feinstein said she received a letter detailing the allegations in July, but sat on it until last Wednesday, ostensibly out of respect for Ford.

Wrightsville Beach 12 brace for Florence to fully make landfall
In New Bern, at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers in North Carolina, the storm surge overwhelmed the town of 30,000. It is expected to make landfall on Friday morning, local time (late Friday, early Saturday AEST).

Kavanaugh has said he was not at the party where the incident was alleged to have occurred, according to a White House official.

A split seemed to be emerging among the GOP.

Senate Judiciary Committee spokesman Taylor Foy said Senator Chuck Grassley, the panel's Republican chairman, was working to set up follow-up calls with Kavanaugh and Ford before the committee's scheduled vote on Kavanaugh on Thursday, given the revelation of Ford's identity and "the late addendum to the background file".

It's worth remembering that these Democrat tactics aren't only meant to sink this nomination - should they end up forcing Kavanaugh to withdraw - but also to damage the credibility of any Supreme Court featuring Trump-nominated (or, let's be honest, Republican-nominated) justices.

East coast, preventing Florence from doing the normal turn, said University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy. Officials say the storm could be reminiscent of Hurricane Harvey , which hit Texas in August 2017.

"I've made it clear that I'm not comfortable moving ahead with the vote on Thursday if we have not heard her side of the story or explored this further", Arizona's Jeff Flake, a member of the committee, told the Post. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time", he said in a statement.

A potential "no" vote from Flake would complicate the judge's prospects. It was expected that only staffers for Republican senators would be on the call, as Democrats have advocated that the FBI investigate Ford's claims in lieu of further action by the committee. "This is not only going to get more women to turn out to vote, it's also going to persuade a lot of Republican women who voted for moderate Republicans in suburbs, including in states like Texas, Tennessee and other red states, to say enough's enough. This should happen before the Senate moves forward on this nominee", Feinstein said in a statement released Sunday. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), has not delayed the vote.

In a press call Monday afternoon, leaders from several progressive organizations said the allegation against Kavanaugh should force his withdrawal. "If the committee is to hear from Ms. Ford, it should be done immediately so the process can continue as scheduled". Kavanaugh said he's willing to "refute" her "false allegation" before the Senate Judiciary Committee "in any way the committee deems appropriate".

Mrs Ford, a professor of psychology at Palo Alto University, detailed her allegations in the Washington Post at the weekend. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time", Kavanaugh said when the allegation first came to light last week.

We'll see what tomorrow brings". "He'll be given the whole week to get ready". "To be in this room, you've got to be mentally and physical tough".

"I know that in the coming days, her story will be scrutinized, and she will be accused of lying", Burgess said. She says she tried to scream, but that Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth to silence her.
