Woman Accusing Judge Kavanaugh of Sexual Assault Wants FBI Probe

Lawyers for the woman who is accusing U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault more than 30 years ago says she wants the FBI to investigate her allegation before she testifies publicly.

If support for his nomination remains this weak, Trump's pick would rank among the lowest-supported Supreme Court nominees to later be confirmed, according to historical data from Gallup.

Ford's lawyers have asked the FBI to investigate her charge - that a drunken Kavanaugh groped her and tried to remove her clothes at a party when they were both teenagers - before she agrees to appear at the hearing, but Republicans have refused to go along. Senator Dick Durbin said he had "a lot of questions" for Kavanaugh.

It is not what one might have expected from a president who has faced allegations of sexual misconduct from more than a dozen women and who blew off candid remarks about groping women as "locker room talk".

Senate Majority Whip Sen. She said President George H.W. Bush had asked the FBI to investigate Anita Hill's allegations against Thomas. The confirmation went ahead. He put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream, she said, and she feared he might inadvertently kill her. GOP leaders had originally meant to hold the committee vote Thursday, and only pushed it back a week after several Senate Republicans insisted that Ford must be given a chance to speak. One of those Republicans, Arizona senator Jeff Flake, tweeted Tuesday night: "When Dr. Ford came forward, I said that her voice should be heard and asked the Judiciary Committee to delay its vote on Judge Kavanaugh". She also said Mark Judge witnessed it.

Long before she chose to come forward, Ford, now 51, had built a new life for herself in Malibu, Honolulu and the San Francisco Bay area, embracing academia, surfing, cheering on the Stanford football team and taking in outdoor rock concerts.

"Hopefully the woman will come forward state her case he will state his case before representatives of the United States Senate and then they will vote they will look at his career".

Kavanaugh Hearing to Address Sex Assault Allegation Uncertain for Monday, Sources Say
She doesn't know how she got there, when it was and so that would logically be something where she would get questions". Patty Murray, D-Wash., assistant Senate minority leader, speaking about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh .

Two hours after Ford's story first appeared on The Washington Post website Sunday, TV trucks arrived in the neighborhood.

Kavanaugh, 53, has vehemently denied the accusation.

"I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has levelled against Brett Kavanaugh". "I never saw Brett act that way".

John Feehery, a Republican strategist, says the #MeToo movement is not just about justice - it's also about punishing those who have been in power for a long time.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary panel, said in a statement Monday night that she was disappointed the Federal Bureau of Investigation and White House "are failing to take even the most basic steps to investigate this matter" and that the process was being rushed.

'I feel so badly for him that he's going through this be honest with you.
