Senate Republicans to propose Wednesday hearing for Kavanaugh, accuser

Senate Republicans to propose Wednesday hearing for Kavanaugh, accuser

But, that's not what occurred in the allegation of sexual assault made by Dr Christine Blasey Ford against US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

McConnell did not mention the upcoming hearing with Kavanaugh and professor Christine Blasey Ford where Republicans claim to want to hear both accounts of the alleged sexual assault.

Kavanaugh denies ever assaulting Ford, or anyone else.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley had scheduled a hearing for Monday, and said if Ford wanted to appear she must notify the committee by 10 a.m. on Friday.

Collins is an important player because she and a handful of other borderline senators could make the difference in the final vote on Kavanaugh in the Senate.

On Wednesday, Republicans, who have rebuffed Ford's request for Federal Bureau of Investigation intervention, urged Ford to accept their invitation to testify and signaled they'd forge ahead with Kavanaugh's confirmation. "Who is not asking the FBI to investigate these claims?"

Trump's initial comments Monday included saying Ford should be heard, but he also repeatedly referred to the lateness of the allegation - a clear allusion to the idea that this could all be politically motivated. "There would be other women, and an FBI investigation would certainly be able to bear that out".

There is no evidence to suggest Ford told her parents about an incident at the time, or that anyone in her family reported it to law enforcement in Maryland, where she alleges the attack took place. Republicans are not willing to subpoena any outside witnesses, as Ford requested, CNN reported on Friday.

Republican lawmakers are trying to win Senate confirmation for Kavanaugh ahead of the court's start of a new term on October 1, or if not by then, ahead of the November 6 nationwide congressional elections, to show Republican voters they have made good on campaign promises to place conservative judges like Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.

In celebration, he tweeted an image of a bouquet of flowers resting in front of a supposed memorial to "American gun control". Wilson meant to post instructions online for using 3D printers to make plastic guns, but a lawsuit deterred his plans.

President Donald Trump has been increasingly vocal in his defense of Kavanaugh since a confidential letter that detailed assault allegations became public, but he has largely stayed away from publicly challenging the accuser's credibility - unlike his eldest son.

Sen. McConnell charged that Senate Republicans must "wait out the obstruction" from Senate Democrats and that Kavanaugh will soon join President Trump's other nominee, Neil Gorsuch, on the Supreme Court.

On Wednesday, Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Sen.

Negotiations have been ongoing on whether Ford will testify next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Kavanaugh was spotted at the White House on Thursday, and allies said he is eager to address the accusation.

Trump chose Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court created by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. The reports also said Ford's lawyers wanted Kavanaugh to appear separately first and that she wanted to be questioned by senators, not outside counsel.

Ford's lawyer Debra Katz told the committee testifying on Monday was not possible. "He remains committed to providing a fair forum for both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh". "Look at it. The angrier they get, the better we're doing".

What is perplexing about the spectacle that will continue into next week's hearings is that President Trump has a whole list of Federalist Society approved Supreme Court candidates who all see the world through their lens.
