Former classmate of Kavanaugh's denies being at party in sexual assault allegation

Former classmate of Kavanaugh's denies being at party in sexual assault allegation

She said: "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing". "I feel so badly for him that he's going through this, to be honest with you", Reuters quoted Trump as saying. On Monday, Ford's lawyer Debra Katz was asked on the Today show if Ford was willing to testify publicly.

In the Washington Post article published Sunday, Ford claimed a drunken Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed at a house party when she was 15 years old. Days earlier Kavanaugh had seemed on track for quick approval.

"The FBI does not make any judgment about the credibility or significance of any allegation", Flores said in the statement. The least we can do is hear what she has to say - and how Kavanaugh responds.

He said the committee offered her "the opportunity to share her story" in a public or a private hearing, or staff interviews, "whichever makes her most comfortable". Why would Ford be unprepared to testify, as Lindsey Graham noted yesterday, if her attorneys arranged a polygraph examination for her a month ago?

Elected to the Senate in 1992, Feinstein was one of the first women to sit on the Judiciary Committee.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations and, too, has longtime friends coming to his defense.

"The Democrats will scream bloody murder. and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation should be involved and all the rest of it", he added.

Attorneys for Blasey said Tuesday night that she will not agree to testify before the Senate, which has planned a hearing next week, until the FBI investigates her claims.

But Ford's account is quite credible. "If there are more questions that need to be asked and answered, then I think it would be appropriate for that time", she told the network. They also declined to hear testimony from other women who accused Thomas of sexual misconduct or could corroborate Hill's claims, and he was later confirmed.

The president said he trusts the Senate to do its job.

Feinstein, who has been backed by several fellow Senate Democrats, said Tuesday she was honoring Ford's request to keep the information confidential. But he said that should be done immediately, "so the process can continue as scheduled".

Kavanaugh has denied the allegation and said he would testify to "refute this false allegation" and "defend my integrity". "I did not do this back in high school or at any time".

The Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley, said an FBI investigation would have no bearing on Ms Ford's evidence so "there is no reason for further delay". In the last decade, we have seen the Supreme Court legalize gay marriage, reshape campaign finance laws and uphold the Affordable Care Act and Trump's travel ban. He accused Democrats of being "lousy politicians, but good obstructionists" in their efforts to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation to a lifetime appointment on the country's highest court. "If they don't have a moral code of their own to determine right from wrong, then that's a problem".

Republicans have blasted Democrats for the way in which the accusation came out - at the 11th hour, while for six weeks, the senior Democrat on the committee, Sen.

Hume also said that there have been many "bad mistakes" made in the media's coverage of the allegations.

The No. 2 Senate Republican leader, John Cornyn of Texas, noted that Ford has admitted she doesn't remember some details of what happened.

But Chris Strohm of Bloomberg News, citing someone familiar with the matter, reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation hadn't said it didn't want to be involved in evaluating the Ford accusations. She said she went home and didn't tell anyone until she and her husband were in couples therapy in 2012.

The Post said it viewed notes from that session and an individual therapy session the following year. In 2006, Bush appointed him to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. She could not be reached for comment Tuesday morning.
