Lawyer: Kavanaugh accuser willing to testify publicly

Orrin Hatch, other politicians react to allegations against Bret Kavanaugh

Ford said Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, were drunk at the time of the incident. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time", Kavanaugh said through the White House.

Feinstein revealed the existence of the letter late last week.

In her first public comments on the incident, which came to light last week after Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Dianne Feinstein referred a "letter" describing a sexual assault to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, she described what happened when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.

"It's disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote after Democrats sat on them since July", said Taylor Foy, spokesman for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen.

The New York Times published an account of the letter Friday.

Chuck Schumer, immediately called for it to be postponed, though Republicans gave no indication Sunday that they would accede to the calls by Democrats, most of whom already publicly oppose Kavanaugh.

Ford's husband, Russell Ford, told The Post that in their 2012 therapy sessions, she recounted the attack and that she used Kavanaugh's last name and voiced concern that he might one day be nominated to the Supreme Court.

Tennessee's Bob Corker also said the vote should be delayed until Mrs Ford is heard, while Lisa Murkowski told CNN a delay was something "they might have to consider".

Josh Gordon is no longer a member of the Cleveland Browns after he was released by the National Football League franchise. He was suspended for the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons and has only played in 11 games since the end of the 2013 season.

One of 11 Republicans on the panel with 10 Democrats, Flake's support is key to moving forward.

The 11th-hour charge rocked the confirmation process for Kavanaugh, who had appeared headed for a successful vote for weeks.

Another Republican member, Sen.

Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of SC, said they wanted to hear more from Ford.

If chosen for the lifetime appointment, Mr Kavanaugh would be expected to tilt the Supreme Court's balance to the right.

The White House's response to the allegation raises the cultural stakes of the fight.

"Senator Feinstein was given information about Judge Kavanaugh through a third party".

Ford said the schoolmate jumped on top of them, which somehow allowed her to escape. 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.

Packers' Matthews speaks on roughing the passer calls
But the bigger outcome of the game is that the roughing penalty has now become as heated of a debate as the catch rule. But Corrente said the new rule didn't play a part in that Matthews play. "It has nothing to do with helmet to helmet.

Republicans have not settled on the strategy, the person familiar with the situation said, but were weighing options, including doing nothing. His office did not immediately respond on Sunday to a request for comment. Ford said, "Why suffer through the annihilation if it's not going to matter?" They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state.

However, Hill wants senators to put a process into place that will allow the accusation to be treated seriously. He called Roe an "important precedent" during his Senate Judiciary confirmation hearing but refused to say whether the ruling was correct.

The committee, and the Senate's Republican leaders, have so far kept to their plan to confirm Kavanaugh quickly.

In an interview with The Post, she reiterated and elaborated on the claims made in the letter sent to Feinstein and Eshoo, saying that Kavanaugh pinned her down on a bed and groped her over her clothes while attempting to undress her, as a friend of his watched.

"With Kavanaugh's hand over my mouth I feared he may inadvertently kill me", she writes, echoing a statement she made to the Post.

The Washington Post reported this afternoon that Stanford professor Christine Blasey Ford is the woman behind the confidential letter given to Sen.

"From the outset", Feinstein said, "I have believed these allegations were extremely serious and bear heavily on Judge Kavanaugh's character".
