Kavanaugh Denies Allegation Of Sexual Misconduct During High School

Anita Hill Speaks Out On Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh

"The answer is yes", Katz said, adding she is also ready to submit polygraph test answers.

Some said they would like Ford to be given a chance to tell her story.

Senator Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee, who isn't a member of the panel but whose vote is critical to confirmation, also doesn't want the committee to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation until Ford's allegations can be heard, said his spokeswoman, Micah Johnson.

But after the Post published Ford's account on Sunday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called for the vote to be delayed until, "at a very minimum, these serious and credible allegations are thoroughly investigated". She later presented her allegations in the form of a letter, which she sent through the office of her her representative in Congress, Democrat Ann Eshoo, to top Democrat, Sen.

Kavanaugh's confirmation vote before the committee is scheduled for Thursday at this point.

The allegation against Kavanaugh first came to light late last week in the form of a letter that had been for some time in the possession of Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee and one of its four female members.

"These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid", Ford said about her identity becoming public.

"My biggest fear was, do I look like someone just attacked me?" she said.

It's disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote after Democrats sat on them since July.

While Green's first touchdown was more about a brilliant fake by quarterback Andy Dalton , this was all about Green. Give him a licensed Sunday slate, and Dalton has a 59-31-1 file with a 91.1 passer rating.

A woman is accusing Kavanaugh of assaulting her when they were high schoolers in the early 1980s, and she relayed the claim in a letter to Democratic Sen.

Ford said she was able to escape Kavanaugh and his friend, whom she identified as Mark Judge. Dianne Feinstein became public over the past week, she made a decision to go ahead and speak out herself, Sunday's report said. She said she went home and didn't tell anyone until she and her husband were in couples therapy in 2012.

She said that when she tried to scream, Mr Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth.

Through the White House, Kavanaugh, 53, a federal appeals judge in Washington, said: "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation".

Katz said lawmakers had not yet reached out to request Ford's testimony as the Senate considers Kavanaugh's nomination for the Supreme Court.

The Committee has received letter after letter from those who've known judge Kavanaugh personally and professionally, including 65 women who've known him since high school, speaking to his impeccable character and respect for others, especially women.

"I am grateful to her for weighing these equities and choosing to speak out on one of the most consequential decisions in our country, an appointment to the highest Court in the land", she continued. The Senate has a constitutional responsibility to scrutinize SCOTUS nominees. The WaPo article describes her as teaching in a consortium with Stanford University. Bob Corker of Tennessee, said the vote should be postponed until the committee heard from Ford.

She said she has not seen Kavanaugh since.

She says that both boys were drunk, and the friend watched as Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to pull off her clothes. "I hope the attacks and shaming of her will stop and this will be treated with the seriousness it deserves".
