Judiciary Democrats Demand Kavanaugh Hearing Be Postponed Over Allegations

Judiciary Democrats Demand Kavanaugh Hearing Be Postponed Over Allegations

In an interview with The Associated Press, Avenatti said he would not provide additional details about Swetnick's allegation, saying they want to see an FBI investigation.

Online lender Avant invited its employees to the main boardroom at its Loop headquarters for a current events talk on the Kavanaugh hearing, said Chris Armsey, senior vice president of people and communications. Add Supreme Court as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Supreme Court news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

But at least a hint of doubt has crept in.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) received a call from a man who claimed his "close acquaintance" had been sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh and pal Mark Judge on a docked boat in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1985.

Initially anonymous, Dr Ford agreed to testify at a public hearing.

But, it turns out, she needs no one to defend her.

Asked by Patrick Leahy of Vermont for her strongest memory of the alleged incident, Ford mentioned the two boys' "laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two and they're having fun at my expense".

Rather than questioning the two witnesses themselves, senators can yield the five minutes they're each allotted to an independent counsel, Rachel Mitchell, a career prosecutor experienced in handling sex crimes who was enlisted by the committee's Republicans.

Amazon to open 3,000 brick-and-mortar stores by 2021
Amazon is mulling a plan to open as many as 3,000 cashierless food stores over the next three years, according to a media report. Whatever Amazon ultimately plans in rolling out Amazon Go, retailers of all stripes are already keeping a close watch.

Swetnick, whose allegations emerged on Wednesday, said she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and others to get girls drunk at parties so that they could be raped. She alleged that Kavanaugh and Judge locked her in a bedroom and that Kavanaugh forced himself on top of her.

A high school classmate of the first woman to publicy accuse Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct said her longtime friend is "ready to tell her truth" on Capitol Hill.

"They could have pushed it through two weeks ago, and we wouldn't be talking about this right now, which is what I would have preferred", Trump said as he entered the United Nations in NY, where he is meeting with leaders from around the world.

The report said the caller, whose name was blacked out, contacted Whitehouse's office the morning of September 24, 2018, after he saw Kavanaugh's high school yearbook photo on television and realized one of those men was Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has denied three other allegations against him, all involving women who have come forward publicly. He said he never had a "sexual or physical encounter of any kind" with her.

She also said Kavanaugh was present at a house party where she was drugged and "gang raped".

Nothing on the calendar appears to refer to her.

Ford said in her opening statement that Judge was in the room where Kavanaugh assaulted her at a gathering in suburban Maryland in the summer of 1982. The other accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in college. Kavanaugh denied being in Newport or on a boat or on a boat with Mark Judge. He also submitted two written statements, one on Monday and a second, more in-depth statement on Wednesday.
