Kavanaugh Accuser's Classmate: 'That It Happened Or Not, I Have No Idea'

Kavanaugh Accuser's Classmate: 'That It Happened Or Not, I Have No Idea'

Trump's tweets follow an interview he gave to Fox's Sean Hannity on Thursday night in Las Vegas, where he appeared at a rally, in which the president first questioned why the Federal Bureau of Investigation hadn't been called at the time of the alleged assault (which would likely have been handled by local law enforcement).

"We're getting a lot of calls, many of which are angry and some of which are threatening", said Tom Mentzer, a spokesman for Sen.

If her case is not credible, Fleischer said, then Republicans have a "clear shot" at confirming Kavanaugh.

The email from an attorney for Christine Blasey Ford to committee aides also says that holding the session on Monday isn't possible.

"Her strong preference continues to be for the Senate Judiciary Committee to allow for a full investigation prior to her testimony", the letter said.

Ford's lawyers told the committee she refuses to appear on Monday, calling the date set by Republicans "arbitrary", according to multiple USA news reports. A much larger number of female Democratic senators are serving to highlight the optics of elderly, white Republican men interrogating a woman in defense of a judicial nominee whose commitment to Roe v. Wade is suspect.

Thirty three protesters were arrested outside of Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley's office in the Hart Senate Office Building Thursday afternoon.

"You're raising legitimate questions that are still on our mind", Grassley said, "and so these details are still being worked out".

'We aren't going to stop fighting for what is right'.

Despite the world class goal, Galaxy went down 5-3 to Toronto in a classic. He also played for the Swedish global team.

The committee is expected to announce next steps later Friday.

Grassley was forced to postpone a planned committee vote on Kavanaugh's nomination scheduled for September 20 after Democrats and some of his GOP colleagues demanded the committee investigate the allegations.

Taylor Foy, spokesman for Republicans who control the committee, said in a written statement, "We are happy that Dr. Ford's attorneys are now engaging with the Committee". Kavanaugh has denied all parts of the allegation.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee for the high court, of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers. "There is zero chance that I would confuse them". But Ford's accusation has upended his confirmation process. "You've watched the tactics", McConnell said.

Republican lawmakers are trying to win Senate confirmation for Kavanaugh ahead of the court's start of a new term on October 1 or, if not by then, ahead of the November 6 nationwide congressional elections, to show Republican voters they have made good on campaign promises to place conservative judges like Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.

Trump also lashed out at Sen.

Before the president's tweets Friday, counselor to the president, Kellyanne Conway told reporters there was "no reason" to attack Ford.

Ford has said she didn't tell anyone at the time about the incident.

"I'm sure she's preparing mentally to embrace her truth and kind of get past the things that have made her feel like she has to hide it and be silent", her sister-in-law Deborah Ford Peters told ABC's "Good Morning America".
