Christine Blasey Ford: Kavanaugh accuser 'faces death threats'

George W. Bush stands by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual misconduct allegation

In the letter, Ford said she had received medical treatment after the assault, adding that "it is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizen about the idea of not saying anything". He stressed that Kavanaugh is eager to provide his testimony.

Blasey Ford's attorneys told NPR's Morning Edition and other outlets that Ford is willing to testify. Aides plan follow sessions as needed to obtain additional information ahead of that public meeting. Ford identified Kavanaugh's friend as the conservative writer Mark Judge. According to the Journal: "The more relevant question is why go to such lengths if Ms. Ford really wanted her name to stay a secret?"

He added that he has "no memory of this alleged incident" and that he does not "wish to speak publicly regarding the incidents described in Dr. Ford's letter".

The move would delay a planned vote in the Judiciary Committee on Thursday to advance Kavanaugh's confirmation. Democrats are demanding a thorough investigation by the FBI, because these allegations are new.

Trump spoke Tuesday at a joint press conference with the president of Poland. He told reporters at the White House: "If it takes a little delay, it will take a little delay". "They have done now, supposedly, six background checks as Judge Kavanaugh has gone beautifully up a ladder". "It's premature to talk about a hearing on Monday". Limiting the hearing to just Kavanaugh and Ford would be "inadequate, unfair, wrong and a desire not to get at the whole truth", Schumer said.

"I feel terribly for him, for his wife and for his handsome young daughters", Trump said.

Democrats complained that there was not a thorough FBI investigation of the allegations that took place, and no witnesses other than Hill and Thomas who were called.

Prof Ford, a psychology lecturer in California, has accused Judge Kavanaugh of drunkenly trying to remove her clothing in 1982 when they were both teenagers in a Washington DC suburb. "This is a test for the Untied States Senate on how we handle accusations of sexual harassment and assault". Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, raised potential questions about Kavanaugh's nomination.

"I want to have both individuals come before the Senate Judiciary Committee and testify under oath", Collins said to reporters Monday on Capitol Hill.

Thomas, who was nominated by President George H.W. Bush, related in his memoir that when he was first asked by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents whether he made sexual advances to Hill or talked about pornography with her, he replied, "Absolutely not".

"As I said earlier, anyone who comes forward as Dr. Ford has done deserves to be heard". We know the prevalence of the problem.

Grassley said Tuesday that he will invite only two witnesses to the hearing to testify before the committee next Monday: Kavanaugh and his accuser Ford.

"A full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions", said the letter to Grassley, first obtained by CNN. "We should not have gotten to this point".

Christine Blasey Ford went to high school at Holton-Arms School, an all-girls school located in Bethesda, Maryland.

"The important thing is to get this investigated", said Sen. "We were going through all of that process". Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) has made it her personal duty to ask all Trump administration nominees that encounter the Senate Judiciary Committee if they've ever committed sexual harassment or assault. A version of its ends with the question, referring to Maine Republican Susan Collins, who has said she is undecided about voting for Kavanaugh: "Senator Collins, what more do you need?"
