Trump's Court Pick BREAKS SILENCE on Feinstein's Letter — KAVANAUGH SPEAKS

Kavanaugh denies allegation of sexual misconduct in high school

Kavanaugh denies allegation of sexual misconduct in high school

Kavanaugh has denied the charges.

Portions of that letter have been reported and leaked in the past week. The woman declined to be interviewed by the New Yorker. The alleged misconduct occurred after Kavanaugh and the woman went into a room along with a friend of Kavanaugh's, said the person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.

Democratic senators and groups will nearly certainly call for the Judiciary chairman, at the very least, to delay's Thursday's scheduled vote.

The timing of this allegation and the manner in which it was raised should also create suspicions. Dianne Feinstein since July, but it only recently surfaced. She decided she would come forward on her own terms.

"For too long, when woman have made serious allegations of abuse, they have been ignored".

The woman has been identified by Politico as a Stanford professor, but her name has not been revealed publicly. "It is critical in matters of sexual misconduct to protect the identity of the victim when they wish to remain anonymous, and the senator did so in this case", a spokesperson for the senator said. But with so many years having passed between the time of the incident and now, who can be sure what happened?

Republican Senator Orrin Hatch, senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he did not "intend to allow Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation to be stalled because of an 11th hour accusation that Democrats did not see fit to raise for over a month".

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has no plans to delay a confirmation vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is scheduled for Thursday. Both Democratic and Republican senators questioned her handling of the allegation. One activist group favoring abortion choice, NARAL, called on Kavanaugh to withdraw from consideration.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday", the Louisiana Republican said he had "been embarrassed by the whole process". It was originally sent to Rep. Anna Eshoo, who represents California's 14th district, according to several media reports. Feinstein has give the letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The FBI confirmed it had received the information "on the night of September 12". It added the letter to Kavanaugh's file but has not opened a criminal investigation. Waters asked. "I don't know how it could be helpful".

Separately, Grassley's spokesperson George Hartmann told ABC News that Grassley is "respecting the request for confidentiality". Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) after the hearings, Kavanaugh said he supported ensuring that workplaces were free from such behavior. Neither Kavanaugh nor the White House offered the Post further comment. Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen.

The issue was not raised, Kennedy said. However, Slate points out that Judge has written about his struggle with alcoholism, including black-out drunkenness, fictionalizing the name of the school he attended and referring to another individual who he names "Bart O'Kavanaugh", who partook in enough alcohol to vomit in someone else's vehicle and pass out.

President Donald Trump and his White House aides might decide to pull the nomination and send up a similarly conservative nominee from Trump's list of two dozen potential high court nominees that have been vetted by influential conservative groups.
