The letter says the women - who graduated from the private Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Md., between 1967 and 2018 - believe California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford "and are grateful that she came forward to tell her story". She is willing to tell her story publicly, her lawyer, Debra Katz, said Monday on NBC's "Today" show.
Asked whether the FBI is investigating the Kavanaugh allegation, the FBI said, as it did last week, that there is no FBI investigation. Kavanaugh said on Monday that he is willing to refute Ford's "false allegation" before the Senate Judiciary Committee if necessary. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time".
Stressing that Mr Kavanaugh had already testified and undergone Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said: "I think you have to weigh this testimonial evidence from Dr Ford and Judge Kavanaugh along with the considerable body of evidence that is already there about the judge's temperament and qualifications and character".
Victoire de la Juve, doublé de Ronaldo — Serie A
Un premier but assez simple à marquer qui a valu à "CR7" une ovation de la part des tifosi bianconeri réunis à l'Allianz Stadium. Mais elle reste depuis sur cinq échecs en finale, dont deux, en 2015 et 2017, avec l'actuel entraîneur Massimiliano Allegri.
Asked by host Savannah Guthrie whether Ford considered it an attempted rape, she said she did.
Feinstein issued a statement on Sunday afternoon in support of Ford and calling for the FBI to investigate the matter before the Senate advances Kavanaugh's nomination.
Also, while Hill's testimony did not derail Thomas's nomination, it has become a key moment in American political history and a turning point for how allegations of sexual harassment are received in the workplace.
"Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation", Ford told the Post. She contacted her congressmember and The Washington Post through a tip line. But, feeling that the emotional turmoil would be too great and would have little effect on the nomination, Ford initially declined to go forward.
Senator says committee should hear Kavanaugh accuser's side of story before vote
Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 6, 2018. Kavanaugh, from the moment Trump announced his nomination, has stressed he has supported and promoted women.
He is "a man of character and integrity" who has been widely lauded by other women, she said. Both parties have said they would agree to testify before the Senate judiciary committee regarding the night in question. "And Brett Kavanaugh got on top of her on the bed, pushed her down on the bed on her back, began groping at her, trying to take off her clothes". "He talked about pornographic materials depicting individuals with large penises, or large breasts involved in various sex acts", she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Democrats are now demanding a delay on the Kavanaugh vote in light of Ford's story.
"This woman should not be insulted and she should not be ignored", said Conway, who added that Kavanaugh should also have an opportunity under oath to address Ford's allegations. At least one Republican on the committee has joined the Democrats.
Over my almost four decades in the Senate I have worked diligently to protect whistleblowers and get to the bottom of any issue.
Floyd Mayweather annonce son retour contre Manny Pacquiao
Mais dès 2016, le Philippin avait repris du service, s'emparant même de la ceinture WBO des welters, avant de la perdre ensuite. Floyd Mayweather a disputé son dernier combat en août 2017 face à Conor McGregor, la star du MMA.
Sixty-five women who knew Mr Kavanaugh in high school have defended him in a letter, circulated by Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans, as someone who "always treated women with decency and respect". She sent the letter to Feinstein in July, and Feinstein did not reveal the letter until the 11th hour. Yet, according to reports, Democrats were in possession of Ford's letter for months and sat on it. Feinstein personally met with Kavanaugh and didn't bring up this "extremely serious" charge of sexual assault. According to Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim, Foy said Sunday that the vote had not been rescheduled.
