Ford wants FBI to investigate Kavanaugh claim before hearing

Trump feels 'terribly' for Kavanaugh; Dems want FBI probe

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accuser has yet to confirm she will testify against him at a blockbuster public hearing, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said during a radio appearance Tuesday.

Dianne Feinstein's comments, reported on Twitter by Fox News journalists and quickly pounced on by Republicans, marked a break with other Democrats who have said they categorically believe Ms. Blasey Ford's partial recollection of an attempted sexual assault at a high school party in the 1980s.

'I have no memory of this alleged incident, ' he wrote in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee sent via his attorney.

When Hill famously testified that Thomas-now a justice on the high court-sexually harassed her, "the Senate Judiciary Committee had an opportunity to demonstrate its appreciation for both the seriousness of sexual harassment claims and the need for public confidence in the character of a nominee to the Supreme Court", she wrote.

"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", it says.

Hirono also on Tuesday reportedly told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to "do the right thing" after he passed her outside the Senate chamber.

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

‘Trump has insecurity of a teenage girl’
However, on whether the meetings were illegal, he said he would leave "legal determinations to others". Trump would nonetheless pull the USA from the deal and reimposed sanctions on Iran last month.

In response to the letter, Grassley wrote that the invitation for a Monday hearing "still stands".

"We will not sit by and let Republicans use this hearing to attack, undermine and shame Ford", declared UltraViolet executive director Shaunna Thomas. As for Kavanaugh, he said, "I feel so badly for him that he's going through this, to be honest with you". What really bothers me and gets me so angry is that the White House is victimizing this person [.] Why should we participate in a victimization who has the courage to come forward?

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said he had "a lot of questions" for Kavanaugh. Ford said in an interview with the Washington Post Sunday that she was previously reluctant to come forward with her story because she believed that it would not affect his confirmation. "And then they will vote", Trump added.

"Nobody should be subject to threats and intimidation, and Dr. Ford is no exception".

Grassley added, "Accusers deserve to be heard and, after they're heard and we also have a responsibility to hear judge Kavanaugh, and I want to hear from Dr. Ford, and she deserved to be heard, because these are serious accusations". There shouldn't be a doubt, ' Trump said Tuesday.

"Were planning on a hearing Monday". "She doesn't know how she got there, when it was and so that would logically be something where she would get questions", he said. "He said very clearly and unequivocally, 'This did not happen"'. She says that a small group of students were drinking at a home in suburban Maryland, and that Kavanaugh and a friend, Mark Judge, were heavily intoxicated.
