Kavanaugh Denies Allegation Of Sexual Misconduct During High School

Senate Committee Delays Kavanaugh Vote Until 9/20

Senate Committee Delays Kavanaugh Vote Until 9/20

Democrats surely were hoping the letter would prompt a federal inquiry and stall Kavanaugh's confirmation until after the midterm elections, when they hope to take over the Senate.

Feinstein won't disclose the information publicly, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed it has included it in Kavanaugh's background file at the committee, now available confidentially to all senators.

According to CNN.com, "Kavanaugh physically pushed her into a bedroom, the accuser said". Hill was vilified in the media and Thomas was confirmed.

Christine Blasey Ford, now a 51-year-old professor at Palo Alto University in California, described an incident between the two in high school, alleging that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed one summer in the 1980s and forced himself on her.

"If they were serious about it", he said, "they should have told us about it".

The magazine says the woman sent a letter about the allegation to Democrats. "We had over 240 protesters who stood up screaming". Sixty-five women who knew him then and subsequently have issued a letter saying he has "always treated women with decency and respect". "That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day", they said. "And now, after it's all over, she produces the letter".

Hill said Friday, "The reluctance of someone to come forward demonstrates that even in the #MeToo era, it remains incredibly hard to report harassment, abuse or assault by people in power".

ABC News has not confirmed the Intercept's reporting.

"Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh's background file, as per the standard process".

On Thursday, Grassley told reporters he had not seen the letter.

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", Ford said.

"There's no plan to change the committee's consideration of Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", Hartmann said in a statement.

The White House called Feinstein's move an "11th hour attempt to delay his confirmation".

"Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators-including with Senator Feinstein-sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new "information" about him", Kupec said. "So I don't think he merits confirmation and I hope very much that my colleagues will come to the same conclusion", said Hassan, D-New Hampshire.
