Kavanaugh Accuser Makes Tentative Deal To Testify Thursday

24 Septembre, 2018, 09:42 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

"Ramirez said that she hoped her story would support that of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who has raised an allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh that bears several similarities to Ramirez's claim".

The accuser, Deborah Ramirez, admits in The New Yorker's piece that there were "significant gaps" in her memories about the event. "I don't think it was just 'Brett.' And I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there".

Kavanaugh sent a statement to the New Yorker, denying the accusations.

"Unless there's something more, no, I'm not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this", Sen.

Meanwhile, Republicans viewed Ford's requests as a way to delay voting on President Donald Trump's nominee.

The allegations cause more headaches for Senate Republicans and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who on Friday told the Value Voters Summit in Washington that Kavanaugh would be on the Supreme Court "in the very near future".

"Senator Feinstein also could have referred these allegations anonymously and confidentially to the Federal Bureau of Investigation when she was made aware of them", committee staff wrote. At that point, Kavanaugh allegedly put his penis in front of her face, and she accidentally touched it as she pushed him away.

Ford will testify against Kavanaugh in an open hearing on Thursday, CNN reports.

In requesting another day to decide, Katz called Grassley's original deadline "arbitrary" and said its "sole objective is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family".

"The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so", he said in a statement published by the magazine.

Maintenance employees confronted him in the cockpit and forced him off the plane, detaining him until the authorities arrived. The man's motive was unknown, Gillespie said, after police searched his home and vehicle and found no weapons or explosives.

"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man", said WH spokesperson Kerri Kupex.

Kavanaugh, who strongly denies the allegation, said he wishes to testify as soon as possible to clear his name following Ford's claims that he attacked her at a 1980s high school party. In a tweet aimed at Mr Kavanaugh shortly before midnight, Mr Grassley said he was giving them additional time.

Even before her lawyer announced on Sunday afternoon that she would appear, Republican senators - who briefly made a show of taking her seriously - were admitting that there was virtually no chance she would change their minds. They know they must tread carefully at any hearing - especially because all 11 Republicans on the Judiciary Committee are men, which is one reason they were seeking an outside lawyer, preferably a woman, to do the questioning.

The New Yorker claims multiple Democratic senators' offices received information about Ramirez's allegation, and senior Republican staffers learned of the allegation last week and feared it might hurt Kavanaugh's nomination.

"As with any witness who comes before the Senate, the Senate Judiciary Committee can not hand over its constitutional duties to attorneys for outside witnesses", Mike Davis, Grassley's top nominations counsel, wrote in an email exchange with Ford's lawyers obtained by The Associated Press.

Keyser's denial could be viewed as the most powerful since she is reportedly Ford's lifelong friend, something Ford's lawyers haven't disputed.

"Thursday's hearing should be canceled in light of a disturbing new allegation of misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh", she tweeted.

In a letter to Ford's lawyers, the committee wrote that Feinstein's move was unfair to both Ford and Kavanaugh.

Sources claim Kavanaugh has been practicing facing senators regarding the allegations by having aides question him from all angles.

Kavanaugh's confirmation appears to turn mostly on the support or opposition of three Republican senators: Jeff Flake of Arizona, who is on the Judiciary panel that Republicans control 11-10; Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
