Brett Kavanaugh accuser speaks out about sexual assault allegations

There is a way back to the better times of which Ginsburg spoke, though it will require great courage and character - to confirm the highly qualified Kavanaugh with a bipartisan vote. Mr Judge denied that the incident happened. This has not changed.

In response to initial reports of the letter, 65 women who knew Kavanaugh in high school signed a letter testifying to his positive treatment of women. The senator wants the allegations to be heard promptly, she said. "That can not happen in this case".

Several other Democrats on the Judiciary Committee also called to delay the vote on Sunday. The panel would also likely seek testimony from Mark Judge, Kavanaugh's friend and classmate who Ms Ford says jumped on top of her and Kavanaugh.

"It raises a lot of questions about Democrats' tactics and motives to bring this to the rest of the committee's attention only now", the statement said. She works under the name Christine Blasey.

"She's willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth, yes, ' her attorney Debra Katz told NBC's 'Today Show" on Monday morning.

Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of trying to attack her and remove her clothing in the early 1980s when they were both high school students. There, according to the account, Kavanaugh pinned her on a bed and groped her while attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothes she was wearing over it. For instance, "she can refer to therapist's notes" about the incident, he said.

Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Judiciary Committee Democrat, said a staff call on the matter wasn't adequate.

"Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh's background file, as per the standard process".

If chosen for the lifetime appointment, Mr Kavanaugh would be expected to tilt the Supreme Court's balance to the right. She said she went home and didn't tell anyone until she and her husband were in couples therapy in 2012.

Bank of England prepared for wide range of Brexit outcomes - Carney
House prices could fall by over a third in the event of a no-deal Brexit, Bank of England chief Mark Carney has warned. In the two years since the 2016 vote, house prices have risen by a further seven per cent, according to ONS data.

The Trump administration is preparing to attack the charges on grounds they surfaced late in the confirmation, and to question the credibility of the accuser since she didn't tell anybody about the alleged assault at the time, a White House official said.

Ford brought her accusation to Democratic lawmakers back in July when Kavanaugh was first nominated, but ultimately made a decision to come forward publicly when details started to leak last week after Sen.

"I support the victim's decision to share her story and now that she has, it is in the hands of the FBI to conduct an investigation".

"She's not taking a position on that", Katz said. Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the end of his junior year at Georgetown Prep.

In a statement provided by the White House, Kavanaugh said, "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation". "That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day", the letter states.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in during his US Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing to be an Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court in Washington.

"For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect", the letter said.

Feinstein said Sunday that the FBI should investigate the allegations against Kavanaugh before the committee moves forward with his nomination.
