Trump sees 'a little delay' for Kavanaugh, Dems dig in

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says a woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school "should testify under oath and she should do it on Capitol Hill".

It's unclear whether phone interviews would be sufficient to address questions from some of Grassley's GOP colleagues. Sen. But he said the confirmation remained on track: "We want to go through a process".

Trump did not say whether he thought Ford should appear before lawmakers.

"I think we have a very, very, very good chance of taking back the House", Schumer said, "but here's the real surprise: We have a much better chance of taking back the Senate than anybody ever imagined".

Republicans at first seemed determined to avoid a public airing of the allegations against Kavanaugh and on Monday began a vociferous defense of the judge.

"Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday", Kavanaugh said.

Debra Katz, a lawyer for Ford, shared her client's willingness to testify during a round of television interviews on Monday morning. "She alleges that she had this traumatic event, and I feel like it is not the Brett Kavanaugh that we know".

The White House and Kavanaugh deny any assault took place. At one point, she says, Mr. Judge jumped on top of both of them, which caused them all to topple off the bed, enabling her to get free.

Katz told USA media her client had been ambivalent about the pressure that would come with speaking out publicly.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein said in a statement Monday afternoon that the Federal Bureau of Investigation should handle the matter, not Judiciary Committee staff. It just means that I think the bad behavior of minors should be treated differently than the behavior of adults, and that adults should not be shadowed forever by misdeeds as children. "I never saw Brett act that way". He also fails to acknowledge one of the major lessons of the #MeToo movement - that many men who seem to be upstanding citizens are also guilty of bad offenses.

Drake sues woman over 'false' pregnancy, rape claims
Drake added that at one point Layla hired a new lawyer who demanded money or else they would make the rape complaint public. Drake is suing a woman who claimed he got her pregnant after a one-night stand in Manchester past year .

Also Monday afternoon, Leahy announced that he and five other Democratic committee members had filed a lawsuit to compel the National Archives and the Central Intelligence Agency to release all records involving Kavanaugh during his time working in the White House. I want him to go in at the absolute highest level. "All the time. Especially when they are drunk".

It is also, inescapably, about whether they credit another woman's account of sexual assault.

Senate Republicans, along with the White House, see no need to postpone voting over what they consider uncorroborated and unverifiable accusations, according to a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly.

"The right forgives Trump because he promises to be faithful to their causes, if not faithful to his wife".

Backlash to Hill's treatment by then all-male Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991 is widely accepted to have helped usher in the so-called "Year of the Woman" in 1992, when the number of women in the Senate doubled from two to four.

More than 200 women had signed the new letter supporting Ford as of Monday morning. Other women may - or may not - come forward.

Trump expressed regret that the allegation against Kavanaugh had surfaced so late in the process but said he wants the Senate to satisfy any lingering questions.

The move forced Republicans to put off a planned committee vote for Thursday on Kavanaugh's nomination.

In a press call Monday afternoon, leaders from several progressive organizations said the allegation against Kavanaugh should force his withdrawal. "Unless something else gets dislodged from historical memory" or other women come forward with accusations, "odds are that he will be confirmed". "It was dated July 30 and my office made sure that that letter was hand-delivered the same day", Eshoo said.

"I hope they will be given the opportunity to do that as quickly as possible", Manchin said.
