Kavanaugh's accuser wants Federal Bureau of Investigation probe before she testifies

Brett Kavanaugh

Trump says the judge "is not a man that deserves this".

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said Monday morning that he had yet to hear back from Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Kavanaugh of committing sexual and physical assault while they were both in high school.

"We will delay the process until it's finished out", Trump said. "Most importantly I want the American people to be happy because they're getting somebody that is great".

"To do better, the 2018 Senate Judiciary Committee must demonstrate a clear understanding that sexual violence is a social reality to which elected representatives must respond, " she said.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, a member of the committee, said he would welcome hearing from Ford. From there, she claims she was pushed into a bedroom and on top of a bed, where she said Kavanaugh, then 17, attacked her. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone.

"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.


"We do, in 2018, get it", said Hill, now a professor at Brandeis University.

"We are alumnae of Holton-Arms School, and we are writing in support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a fellow Holton graduate".

Republicans, some of whom see the allegations as a stalling tactic by Democrats, have been pushing to confirm Kavanaugh before November's mid-term elections when they could lose control of the Senate.

"The hearing was scheduled for six short days from today and would include interrogation by senators who appear to have made up their minds that she is "mistaken" and "mixed up".

Lawyer Debra Katz, who is representing Ford, said her client was willing to testify about her allegation before the Senate panel. They also plan to question Ford's credibility and point out that she did not tell anyone about the incident when it first happened.

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.
