McCaskill says she’ll oppose Kavanaugh nomination

What the man accused of helping Kavanaugh assault a woman wrote...

The Senate Judiciary Committee has invited him and Ford to testify at a hearing Monday, although Ford's lawyers say she wants the FBI to investigate her allegation before she testifies.

However, Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Republican-dominated judiciary committee, said Tuesday that Ford's presence was not confirmed.

Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen said that the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault "has a very credible story".

But for Flavio DaCosta, 24, also a third-year law student at RWU, Ford's accusation alone, without proof, isn't enough to disqualify Kavanaugh from serving on the Supreme Court.

Anita Hill - whose allegation against Clarence Thomas has drawn endless parallels with the Ford-Kavanaugh controversy - says the accuser must not be hurried.

The Republicans on the committee know they have to give her every opportunity to tell her story but they are adamant that this is not a matter for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and that Democrats are using the case to simply stall the nomination process, our correspondent says. They also want more witnesses besides Kavanaugh and Ford, hoping to avoid what they said would turn into a "he-said-she-said" moment. "There's information here that appears to potentially be inconsistent with what the judge said earlier this morning". Senate Republicans had better confirm Kavanaugh promptly, or a huge number of Republican activists-like me-will conclude that the DC version of the party is utterly worthless.

While Dr. Ford's life was being turned upside down, you and your staff scheduled a public hearing for her to testify at the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. Senators on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident.

PDT or 1302 GMT) from Space Launch Complex-2 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in Southern California. The launch was the last for the iconic rocket, introduced by the rocket builders in 1989.

However, late on Tuesday Flake and Corker indicated that they would hold a vote next week if Ford declines an invitation from Sen. We've offered Dr. Ford the opportunity to share her story with the committee, as her attorney said yesterday she was willing to do.

On Wednesday, Mr Trump continued to support his nominee, telling reporters outside the White House: "He is such an outstanding man, [it is] very hard for me to imagine anything happened".

"What we're saying is there should be an investigation because that's the right thing to do", Banks said.

She asked that the FBI carry out an investigation before she gives evidence to the Senate judiciary committee, which has invited her to do so on Monday. Maybe her claims wouldn't have stood up to questioning and Democrats knew it, in which case the smart play was to find a way to excuse Ford from testifying and somehow make it Grassley's fault. "She deserves to be treated with respect and fairness by the Senate".

There is some dispute over who actually said, "The ends justify the means", but there is no ambiguity over its meaning. "And it is an enormous act of courage understanding the risks that would come her way, she made a decision to tell her story and not have others mischaracterize it".

"The responsibility falls to us", Hatch tweeted. "I really would want to see what she has to say", Mr Trump said Wednesday.
