Kellyanne Conway says Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford should be heard

Kavanaugh Doubles Down on Denial – But Makes Secret Visit to White House

And in an unusually personal swipe, Schumer said McConnell was showing "unmitigated gall" to oppose delaying Kavanaugh's nomination after refusing for most of 2016 to consider President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the court after Antonin Scalia died. She alleges that Kavanaugh and a friend - both "stumbling drunk" - corralled her into a bedroom during a party.

Ford said she will participate in any proceedings she is invited to participate in.

Now, several Senate Democrats and Republicans say Kavanaugh's confirmation proceedings, which are set to take place this week, should be halted until they can question Ford and Kavanaugh.

In the interview, Ford says she never revealed what had happened to her until 2012, when she and her husband sought couples therapy.

Also Monday, two of Kavanaugh's former girlfriends issued statements vouching for his character.

Trump Jr has always been the Trump child most in touch with the president's most ardent voters. But Trump said he did not meet with his nominee and declined to say whether Kavanaugh had offered to withdraw, dismissing the question as "ridiculous". "Never had even a little blemish on his record".

Democrats - and some Republicans - have called for a delay in the nomination process until Ford's allegation could be investigated further.

"If it takes a little delay, it'll take a little delay", Trump said of the confirmation process.

"Brett Kavanaugh and I have been good friends since high school", said Maura Fitzgerald, who dated Kavanaugh in college. I'd like everybody to be very happy. She said that while the whole thing was happening, a drunken Judge said "go for it" and also "stop".

Conway said on "Fox & Friends" on Monday morning that the woman "should not be insulted and she should not be ignored". "This woman will be heard".

The Senate committee was scheduled to vote Thursday on Kavanaugh's confirmation, but Democrats have asked for a delay. Dianne Feinstein of California, in July.

The developing situation threatens to exacerbate the GOP's rocky Trump-era relationship with suburban women, who are poised to play an outsized role in the districts that will largely decide the House majority this fall.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations and said he's willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way about the reports. She was anxious that he "might inadvertently kill me". "For me, we can't vote until we hear more". "His nomination should be put on hold until those hearing are complete".

"What is puzzling to me", GOP Sen.

The result is that our articles are reaching fewer people at a time when we need genuinely independent news more than ever. The sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh recall Hill's accusations against Clarence Thomas in 1991, but there are important differences as well as cautions for senators considering how to deal with the allegations. Murkowski said Ford's story "must be taken seriously".

Kavanaugh and Ford had each indicated earlier Monday a willingness to testify to the Judiciary committee. But faced with a growing Me Too movement, they are also sensitive about appearances.

The announcement comes four days after Republican members, in a committee business meeting, blocked four attempts by Democrats to subpoena the White House for the Kavanaugh documents. She said President George H.W. Bush had asked the FBI to investigate Anita Hill's allegations against Thomas. Senator Feinstein, on the other hand, has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information necessary to do our jobs.

Katz said that her client is willing to go through with testimony despite the violent and threatening reactions she has already received after she went public on Sunday.
