Brett Kavanaugh Accuser Speaks To WaPo On Supreme Court Nominees Alleged Assault

Republicans pressing ahead with Kavanaugh nomination despite allegation

"I believe that the member that first received that letter was as late as July, and quite honestly, I'm shocked that the matter didn't come up in the almost 32 hours of testimony that Judge Kavanaugh was before us, in the open sessions or the almost hour, hour and a half session that we had in a closed session", Tillis said Sunday. The notes do not mention Kavanaugh's name but say she reported that she was attacked by students "from an elitist boys' school" who went on to become "highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington".

"Senator Feinstein's had the letter since July", he said on "Fox News Sunday". Dianne Feinstein. The magazine said the woman has declined to reveal her identity.

She said she tried to scream and he put his hand over her mouth. She described that Kavanaugh and another classmate, who were drinking, turned up music to cover up her protests and she freed herself and left the scene. A letter of this sort by itself is of no value to the public other than to confirm that the U.S. Senate now traffics in gossip.

Feinstein's statement that she had "referred the matter to federal investigative authorities" jolted Capitol Hill and threatened to disrupt what had been a steady path toward confirmation for Kavanaugh by Republicans eager to see the conservative judge on the court.

Questions swirled on Thursday when Feinstein declined to explain what information she was provided about Kavanaugh that she made a decision to share with authorities. The New Yorker did not name the woman.

The FBI confirmed it had received the letter but indicated it was not immediately pursuing the allegations.

Kennedy took direct aim at Senate Democrats for the timing of a letter that surfaced reportedly detailing sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh when he was a teenager, saying Sen.

"There's nothing to say", Katz told BuzzFeed News Wednesday.

Feinstein was preparing to lead Democratic questioning of Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing. "For these and other reasons detailed below, I strongly oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court". The Senator took these allegations seriously and believed they should be public. The woman has not gone public but Sen. The woman making the allegation attended a nearby school. "Anonymous allegations are not going to change the chairman's plans for a vote on Thursday", a top committee Republican aide tells Cindy Smith. It was originally sent to Rep. Anna Eshoo, who represents California's 14th district, according to several media reports. Feinstein has give the letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

But her story leaked as it was reported Feinstein had the letter and was refusing to share it with her Democratic colleagues.

"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". The agency declined to investigate but sent it to the White House, who passed it on to all members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"They've had this stuff for three months", he added.

Separately, Grassley's spokesperson George Hartmann told ABC News that Grassley is "respecting the request for confidentiality".
