Kavanaugh, accuser say they're ready to testify - but how?

Cruz says Democrats 'playing games' but agrees that Kavanaugh's accuser should testify before confirmation vote

President Donald Trump listens to a reporter's question during a meeting of the President's National Council of the American Worker in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, Sept. 17, 2018, in Washington.

Trump said he wants a "full process" to investigate the allegations.

"One thing I will say is that, as I understand it, Judge Kavanaugh spent quite a bit of time with Sen". Ford didn't come forward to prosecute Kavanaugh, but with a piece of information that, she believed, was relevant to his character before this became a very public issue, Fairstein said. Given the politics, given energized women voters, given the new climate about sexual harassment, "it's very important that they give due respect to Dr. Ford".

"She believes that if were not for the severe intoxication of Brett Kavanaugh, she would have been raped", Katz told NBC's "Today". According to Kavanaugh and Judge, Ford's story is categorically and unequivocally false.

Kavanaugh, who has denied the incident ever occurred, had said in a statement released through the White House Monday that he was willing to testify as soon as possible.

Katz told ABC's Good Morning America her client is "willing to co-operate" with investigators and the Senate's judiciary committee.

Ms Feinstein on Sunday called on the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's story "before the Senate moves forward on this nominee". She said it would be "disqualifying" if Kavanaugh was lying. "Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making the accusation until she identified herself yesterday". "Judge Kavanaugh and the White House both stand by that statement". After initially suggesting a private conference call on the matter would suffice, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said his panel would hold a hearing next Monday "to provide ample transparency".

If the Judiciary committee's timetable slips further, it would become increasingly hard for Republicans to schedule a vote before the November 6 elections, in which congressional control will be at stake.

This story has been corrected to show the party breakdown on the Senate Judiciary Committee is 11-10 in favor of Republicans, not 12-11 in favor of Republicans.

Taking Baby Aspirin Every Day Can Actually Have Serious Health Risks
However the medicine was linked with an increased risk of serious bleeding, in line with previous findings. Other large aspirin studies have suggested that aspirin may prevent cancer over the longer term.

Critics have accused the Republican Party of fast-tracking the process to get Mr Kavanaugh on the court by October 1, the first day of the autumn term.

Democrats are now demanding a delay on the Kavanaugh vote in light of Ford's story.

Ford said she was at a teen house party when Kavanaugh and one of his male classmates - both "stumbling drunk" - cornered her in a bedroom and Kavanaugh pinned her on her back on a bed, the paper reported. "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing".

Ford also alleges that a friend of Kavanaugh's, Mark Judge, was a participant in the incident.

In the interview, Ford said she never revealed what had happened to her until 2012, when she and her husband, Russell Ford, sought couples therapy.

In 1991, amid the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Hatch accused law professor Anita Hill of fabricating claims that Thomas sexually harassed her when she worked for him at the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Republicans, for their part, said Ms. Ford deserves to be heard - and said that's why they were so stunned at Ms. Feinstein's handling.

Republicans say the allegations have already cast a shadow over Kavanaugh but that it does not appear to be enough to change the votes in the narrowly divided 51-49 Senate. She is facing significant pressure to vote against Kavanaugh from activists on women's rights, health care and Alaska Natives. A Republican not on the committee, Sen. "Instead, she waited until after the confirmation hearing as the committee is now preparing to vote, in what can only be described as a desperate, last-ditch effort to derail the nomination with an uncorroborated rumor".

The president seems resigned to senators delaying what had been an expected Thursday vote by the judicial committee after the allegation from a professor at a California university threw Kavanaugh's confirmation into some doubt.
