  • Trump speaks out on Kavanaugh accusation Delay is not a problem idea of withdrawal is ‘ridiculous

Blasey said Kavanaugh and a friend of his, Mark Judge, turned up music to drown out her screams.

The president seems resigned to senators delaying what had been an expected Thursday vote by the judicial committee after the allegation from a professor at a California university threw Kavanaugh's confirmation into some doubt.

As Mother Jones points out, a book by Judge mentions Kavanaugh and his apparent love of binge-drinking while at the school.

"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", he added in his statement released by the White House. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone.

Brett Kavanaugh’s Accuser Willing to Testify, Lawyer Says
Chuck Grassley, said he wants to set up phone calls with Kavanaugh and Ford, but did not say he would postpone the vote. But as the Senate judiciary committee moved on Tuesday to prepare for the hearing, several questions remained.

Senator Susan Collins, a Maine Republican, told reporters she would like the chance to observe Dr Ford to decide the credibility of her account. Citing "a person close to" Ford who also wishes to remain anonymous, they report that the harassment has been so severe she has had to move herself and her children out of their home, and is arranging for "private security".

Finally, refer to Christine Blasey Ford by her name. They also plan to question Ford's credibility and point out that she did not tell anyone about the incident when it first happened. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the accusations.

"You're never going to know everything about a nominee, but you want to - and you try to, " said Thomas Rath, who was a leading member of the effort to prepare David Souter for his 1990 Supreme Court confirmation hearings and for the successful 90-9 vote on the Senate floor.

However, as Kavanaugh-who already was deeply unpopular before Ford's allegations were made public-hasn't given any indication that he will stop seeking a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court, other advocacy groups and Democratic lawmakers are calling for a delay of any confirmation vote until the Federal Bureau of Investigation can fully investigate Ford's claims.
