Trump says 'hard to imagine' Kavanaugh assaulted woman

Like Ford Louis Dreyfus is an alumna of Holton Arms School all all-girls school in Bethesda Maryland. Loius Dreyfus graduated in 1979

Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor in California, has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when both were high school students in suburban Maryland.

The woman, Christine Blasey Ford, alleges Kavanaugh attempted to force himself onto her at a party in the early 1980s.

"It's very hard for me to imagine that anything happened", Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House.

"I think he's an extraordinary man".

"I do not have first hand knowledge of the incident", King, who did not respond to requests seeking comment, said in a subsequent Twitter post.

The letter from Ford's lawyers notes that despite receiving a "stunning amount of support from her community", Ford has also "been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats" and has been forced to leave her home.

Briefly teammates with Messi at Barcelona between 2005-06, Van Bommel didn't hold back in Monday's news conference. With ten minutes left, Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Lozano.

Republicans are seeking to ensure Kavanaugh receives Senate approval this month, before the Supreme Court resumes deliberations October 1.

For Democrats hoping to hurt Trump before November congressional elections, when they hope to retake at least one house of the Republican-dominated Congress, the row is a godsend.

Lawyers for Ford say that before she testifies on Capitol Hill, she wants the FBI to investigate her allegations.

The Justice Department said in a statement on Monday that the sexual assault allegation "does not involve any potential federal crime" to warrant an FBI investigation, according to The Associated Press. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone.

"If she shows up, that would be wonderful", he said of Monday's planned hearing.

"So anything outside of the scope would (presumably?) need a request from the White House", she added.

But he said it's not the FBI's job to conduct an investigation of her claims, saying, "It's up to the Senate and I really rely on them". That underscores a desire to avoid antagonizing female voters at a time when the #MeToo movement has made sexual abuse a major political dynamic.

Kavanaugh faces allegations of sexually assaulting a woman along with the help of a friend when they were all teenagers at a high school party. Some could even call a presidential order for the FBI to investigate a state-law matter to be an abuse of power. She was invited to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee but has yet to accept the invite. "Only then should the chairman set a hearing date", Feinstein said.

Judge's lawyer said in a letter to the committee on Tuesday Judge did not recall the incident and did not wish to testify. He questioned whether the hearing would take place if Ford declined to appear.

Democrats have pushed back on the hearing.

Chuck Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee, saying that an FBI investigation would "ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner", and would be critical "before conducting any hearing or making any decisions".

"My advice is to push the pause button on this hearing, get the information together, bring in the experts and put together a hearing that is fair, that is impartial, that is not biased by politics or by myth, and bring this information to the American public", she said.

Feinstein said on Tuesday there should be more than just two witnesses, possibly to include people who Ford previously confided in.
