Woman Accusing Brett Kavanaugh of Sexual Assault Breaks Silence Reveals Her Identity

Jim Gensheimer, a friend of Ford's, told the San Jose Mercury News that Ford has been "trying to forget about this all of her life, basically" and that she has told him that she is afraid to sleep in bedrooms that do not have a second way out. Dianne Feinstein raised questions about Kavanaugh just days after his committee hearing concluded. "She will agree to participate in any proceedings that she's asked to participate in". It was expected that only staffers for Republican senators would be on the call, as Democrats have advocated that the FBI investigate Ford's claims in lieu of further action by the committee.

"This is a completely false allegation", Kavanaugh said in a statement Monday morning.

In July 1991, more than half of Americans - 52% - said they would like to see the Senate vote in favor of Clarence Thomas serving on the Supreme Court, with 17% who said they would not want them to vote in favor, according to a Gallup/CNN poll.

Kavanaugh had issued a similar statement on Friday, before the identity of his accuser was made public. He said he would be willing to talk to the committee "in any way" it deems appropriate to "defend my integrity". But President Donald Trump telegraphed earlier Monday that that schedule might slow.

Mr. Judge has said the incident never happened.

"No one in their right mind regardless of their motives would want to inject themselves into this process and face the kind of violation that she will be subjected to by those who want this nominee to go though".

"If it takes a little delay, it will take a little delay".

"This is a remarkable moment with echoes of the past, but also stark differences", said Nan Aaron, the founder and president of the Alliance for Justice, a liberal judicial advocacy group, "I can tell you, every woman in America will be watching how this unfolds". Whether GOP senators will allow that to happen is still unclear, but I think other senators will prevail to let the two of them testify. I'd like everybody to be very happy.

Mark Judge also denies the accusation that he witnessed the assault.

"This woman should not be insulted, and she should not be ignored", White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said during an interview on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends". "This woman will be heard". When she testified before the Judiciary Committee, senators on both sides of the all-male panel questioned her credibility.

President Trump said Monday he's willing to accept a delay in the GOP's push to quickly confirm his pick for the Supreme Court in order to sort out new allegations, but said he's still backing his man, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He added he had "never done anything like what the accuser describes". "For me, we can't vote until we hear more".

"To provide ample transparency, we will hold a public hearing Monday to give these recent allegations a full airing".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he was open to hearing from Ford, while resisting calls to delay the vote. No, I do not expect victims of sexual abuse to know the exact time of an assault many years later (though lots of abuse victims have no absolutely problem with such vital details). In this case, that would entail phone calls with at least Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford. She told the Post she was afraid Kavanaugh might "inadvertently kill" her during a party in the early 1980s, alleging that the Supreme Court nominee pinned her to a bed and groped her over a one-piece bathing suit. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, two moderates who have yet to announce their positions on Kavanaugh and aren't on the Judiciary Committee.

"If there is real substance to this, it demands a response", Murkowski said.
