Another Potential Witness Named By Kavanaugh Accuser Denies Claims

View Caption			Hide Caption

Brett Kavanaugh listens to Senators on day three of his confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee to be Associate Justice of the Supreme Court on September 6, 2018. Even now, Ford and her attorneys want the FBI to open their own investigation into the incident before the Senate Judiciary Committee holds hearings on the matter. "If you say, "You did this to me, I can't tell you when or where because then if I do, you might be able to say, I wasn't there and that wasn't me" - so you leave that intentionally vague".

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said that this "all points in one direction" and is "pretty transparent" that Democrats are using Ford to stall the vote on Kavanaugh.

In his testimony during the subsequent hearings on the issue, Thomas said that it was when the Federal Bureau of Investigation raised the issue on September 25 that he first learned of Hill's allegations.

The showdown has echoes of current Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' contentious confirmation hearings in 1991 involving sexual harassment allegations lodged against him by a law professor named Anita Hill.

Under pressure from a bipartisan group of senators, GOP leaders delayed a judiciary committee vote on the the nomination, originally scheduled for Thursday, in order to allow for a hearing on the assault allegations. Kavanaugh has denied Ford's allegation and has said he's willing to appear before the committee.

The November 6 congressional elections will determine whether Republicans retain majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives.

On Tuesday evening, Ford's attorney Lisa Banks told CNN that Ford will talk with the committee - but that she's not prepared for a hearing as soon as Monday. "I am friends, I've been friends with him for years", said Meghan McCaleb. The argument is that a Kavanaugh defeat would badly demoralize the Republican base in advance of the 2018 midterms - and that depression coupled with Democrats' huge enthusiasm to vote would flip control.

Moderate Republicans also said Kavanaugh and Ford should be heard.

Referring to Ford's possible appearance in front of the Senate next week, Trump added, "if she shows up and makes a credible showing, that'll be very interesting, and we'll have to make a decision". Her husband, Russell Ford, told the newspaper that when she described the incident in the 2012 session, she used Kavanaugh's last name and said she was concerned he might eventually be nominated to the Supreme Court. "And we will see what happens", Trump said. "We were looking for a way to get it investigated by an outside investigator and what we found is we had to go through (the rules committee) and we were discussing the pros and cons of doing that, so it hasn't been easy".

Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford say that before she testifies on Capitol Hill next week she wants the FBI to investigate her allegation that she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "She is", Katz said.

President Donald Trump-backed Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's elevation to the apex court is under jeopardy after a woman alleged sexual abuse against him.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, President Trump said, "if it takes a little delay, it'll take a little delay". Without Kennedy on the court, the justices are split 4-4 between liberals and conservatives. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation. Some, including Grassley, have questioned the fairness of making Kavanaugh withdraw his nomination for an assault that, if true, he would have committed at 17 (the other side contends that if the alleged assault occurred, no matter when it was, Kavanaugh shouldn't be appointed to a potentially lifetime position). Grassley said. "We wouldn't be having this hearing if it wasn't for the fact that Dr. Ford told the Washington Post and other people publicly that she wanted to testify".

Cornyn's fellow Republicans have generally avoided criticizing Ford, instead castigating Democrats for not revealing her allegations earlier.
