Kavanaugh: Clarence Thomas 2.0?

George W. Bush stands by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual misconduct allegation

An attorney for Mark Judge sent the committee a letter on Tuesday in which Judge said he no memory of the incident or the party where Ford says it took place.

Hill's guidance comes amid mounting calls for Kavanaugh, who has denied Ford's allegations, to withdraw from consideration.

"At this very moment, the issue is moving so fast that accurate predictions are hard to make", said Steven Law, who leads the super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

There are no Republican women on the Senate Judiciary Committee but they're still in the spotlight because of the nature of the allegations.

"Judge Kavanaugh looks forward to a hearing where he can clear his name of this false allegation".

"The invitation for Monday still stands", Grassley said in a statement. "I applaud Christine Blasey Ford for her courage in coming forward", he wrote.

"Either they don't take this seriously", she said, "or. they just want to get it over". The claim being made by Dr. Blasey is much more serious than what Professor Hill accused Clarence Thomas.

Senate Democrats charged Tuesday that no hearing should be held until the FBI investigates Ford's claim and urged reopening Kavanaugh's background check.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, also weighed in to support Ford. The others are Nevada Sen.

Heller said last week he had "no reservations" about voting to confirm Kavanaugh.

Today, when asked whether he would ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation to open its background check on Mr Kavanaugh, Mr Trump said: "I don't think the Federal Bureau of Investigation really need to be involved because they don't want to be involved". Rosen was quick to suggest in July that Kavanaugh would pose a threat to abortion rights were he to be confirmed.

"Nothing the Federal Bureau of Investigation or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay". The development offered some respite to several vulnerable Democrats who are facing re-election in Republican-leaning states and who had avoided taking a firm position on Kavanaugh's nomination.

Harris asserted that agents in the FBI "are really well equipped to do this kind of investigation, but they're not being given the authority to do it" by the Justice Department or the Trump White House. "With years of hindsight, mounds of evidence of the prevalence and harm that sexual violence causes individuals and our institutions, as well as a Senate with more women than ever, "not getting it' isn't an option for our elected representatives". In the letter, Ford's lawyers wrote that "a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions".

Referring to the attention that Blasey's allegation has received ― including Sen.

President Trump issued his most forceful defense yet of his embattled Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Tuesday.

"She will have the opportunity to be heard Monday", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said at press conference Tuesday, while dodging a question about whether other potentially corroborating witnesses should be brought in to testify.
