'Very hard for me' to believe Kavanaugh accuser

Lawyers for the woman who is accusing U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault more than 30 years ago says she wants the FBI to investigate her allegation before she testifies publicly. She has been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats. Judiciary Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, (R) of Iowa, said Monday that he will "continue working on a way to hear her out in an appropriate, precedented, and respectful manner".

Kavanaugh and Ford had each indicated earlier Monday a willingness to testify to the Judiciary committee. "Very hard for me to imagine that anything happened".

"I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity". While Thomas was confirmed, Hill's testimony has not been forgotten and has been raised as a #MeToo object lesson in how not to handle Kavanaugh's nomination. Richard Blumenthal of CT, said staging the hearing without the FBI investigation would make it a "sham". "If he she doesn't show up, that would be unfortunate".

He asked why Feinstein (D-Calif.) didn't bring up the accusations when Senate Democrats and Kavanaugh met privately in August.

Thielen caught 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown, and Diggs had nine receptions for 128 yards and two touchdowns. Although it can only happen two to three times per season, these matchups are always interesting to watch.


But the president said he wanted the Senate to go ahead with the nominee confirmation process.

"She has nothing to gain from this except a clear conscience, which is a very powerful thing", said Samantha Guerry. "I expect all of the enlightened men in our country, cause there must be millions of men out there who are enlightened who also will rise up to say we can not continue the victimization and the smearing of someone like Dr. Ford", Hirono said. "So if the senators who have come forward and said they want to treat this seriously mean that, then they'll have an investigation of these allegations so that we all go into this more informed", said Ford's attorney, Lisa Banks.

At the U.S. Capitol, Grassley said he was trying to get Ford to testify by Monday, publicly or privately. He told reporters that he feels "so badly for" Kavanaugh and that "this is not a man that deserves this". Feinstein said. "What about individuals who were previously told about this incident?" "They've investigated about six times before, and it seems that they don't do that".

The Justice Department has said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation sent the initial letter Ford wrote making the allegation against Kavanaugh to the White House and considers its role in the matter complete.

The Duchess received a deluge of well wishes - and as is proper etiquette, she had thank you cards sent in response. Thomas and Samantha aren't the only ones to have raised their issues with Meghan in a public forum.


The confirmation fight comes just weeks before November congressional elections in which Democrats seek to win control of Congress from Mr Trump's fellow Republicans.

"Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women", he continued.

Ford, a California psychology professor, told The Washington Post Kavanaugh groped her at a suburban Washington house party when she was 15 and he was 17.
