Johnson Joins Collins And Manchin In Calling For Ford, Kavanaugh To Testify

Donald Trump Jr

The White House counselor, Kellyanne Conway, said Monday that the woman who accused the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault "should not be insulted and she should not be ignored".

Debra S. Katz, the attorney for the accuser, said Ford was willing to tell her story publicly to the Judiciary panel but no lawmakers had yet contacted her. Katz denied that Ford, a Democrat, was politically motivated. CNN reported that Feinstein had forwarded a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation relating to alleged misconduct by Kavanaugh while he was in high school and that the letter Feinstein sent had all the names redacted except for Kavanaugh's.

Grassley said the standard procedure would be to conduct follow-up telephone calls with Kavanaugh and Ford, and that he meant to work with the senior Democrat on the committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein, to schedule the calls but that Democrats have refused to cooperate.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh, a conservative appeals court judge chosen by Trump for a lifetime job on the top USA court, of trying to attack her and remove her clothing while drunk in 1982 in a Maryland suburb outside Washington when they were students in different high schools.

The allegation against Kavanaugh became public last week.

Kavanaugh said he would be willing to talk to the committee to refute the allegations, according to a statement released by the White House on September 17.

Kavanaugh denied the allegation in a statement the White House provided to the Post. "The judge, who I know very, very well, is an honest man, so this didn't happen", Hatch said. The White House stood by Kavanaugh, who was seen entering the building and who issued a new statement again denying the allegations and saying he would be willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in an effort to clear his name.

Kavanaugh also clerked for a judge accused of sexual harassment by at least 15 women and who maintained an email group with his clerks where he shared misogynist and racist gags.

Kavanaugh spent more than nine hours at the White House Monday, huddling behind closed doors with his confirmation team.

An attorney for Ford said Monday that Ford is willing to testify about the allegations before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Susan Collins (Maine) said both Kavanaugh and Ford should testify before the committee.

"She believes that if it were not for the severe intoxication of Brett Kavanaugh, she would have been raped", Katz told NBC's "Today".

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", said Ford, 51, a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California. September 12: The Intercept reported that Feinstein is in possession of a letter detailing an accusation against Kavanaugh and that she would not provide the letter to other members of the committee.

Kavanaugh has said he was not at the party where the incident was alleged to have occurred, according to a White House official. This should happen before the Senate moves forward on this nominee", Feinstein said in a statement released Sunday.

"He is somebody very special", Trump said of his nominee."At the same time, we want to go through a process". "For me, we can't vote until we hear more". Three Republicans - including Arizona Sen.

Mr Kavanaugh, she told the Post, pinned her to a bed at a Maryland party in the early 1980s, clumsily tried to remove her clothing and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. "I don't know that, but I do believe that if she is accusing him of something so egregious, she needs to be heard", Ernst told Radio Iowa in a report published Tuesday.

Two committee Republicans - all 11 on the GOP side are men - Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of SC, said they wanted to hear more from Ford.

On the evening of September 17, the committee still had a hearing scheduled for September 20 to vote on recommending Kavanaugh for a full Senate vote.

In the interview, Ford says she didn't reveal what had happened until 2012, when she and her husband sought couples therapy.
