KAVANAUGH SPEAKS: Trump's Court Pick BREAKS SILENCE on Feinstein's Letter

  • Republicans pressing ahead with Kavanaugh nomination despite allegation

Ford told the Post that Kavanaugh "groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it".

She says she tried to scream and Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand.

Ford alleges another teenager watched as a drunken Kavanaugh attempted to remove her clothing at a gathering in suburban Maryland. The late entrance of the letter to the Kavanaugh pre-confirmation hearings drew cries of foul play from Kavanaugh, who denied the allegations, and his supporters.

Ford described to the Post her concern her identity would be revealed anyway as the story snow balled.

The woman "said that the memory had been a source of ongoing distress for her, and that she had sought psychological treatment as a result", The New Yorker added.

"For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect", the women said in the letter sent Friday to Senate Judiciary leaders.

Kennedy said on "Fox News Sunday" that the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings have devolved into an "intergalactic freakshow". Equally bad was the recent op-ed from a White House insider underscoring President Donald Trump's incompetence. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking minority member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. A Democratic aide and another person familiar with the letter confirmed Friday to The Associated Press that the allegation is sexual in nature. "There are far too many questions swirling around this nomination". Speaking last Wednesday at the George Washington University Law School, a day before Feinstein disclosed the letter, Ginsburg called the Kavanaugh hearings "a highly partisan show".


Republicans are trying to push the nomination through before the midterm elections in November, when their slim 51-49 hold over the Senate will be at risk.

Kavanaugh's nomination has divided the Senate, and the new information complicates the process, especially as key Republican senators, including Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, are under enormous pressure from outside groups seeking to sway their votes on grounds that a Justice Kavanaugh might vote to undercut the Roe v. Wade ruling.

According to Ms. Ford, Mr. Judge then tried to climb on top of her, causing all three to spill over from the bed and giving her a chance to run from the room and eventually leave the house.

Ford said she told no one about the episode until 2012, when she was in couples therapy with her husband.

The therapist notes say four boys were involved. Hassan said Collins will make her own decision. Now he is being accused of sexual harassment by a former classmate he went to high school with in the early 1980s.

But after the past few days of coverage and speculation, she said, "Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation".
