Four GOP Governors Want Senate to Delay Kavanaugh Vote

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is pictured testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, have also accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during his youth.

But politics continued to drive the debate Wednesday, as Democrats repeated demands that the nomination be delayed for a fuller investigation, and President Donald Trump accused Democrats of playing "a terrible con game". She said seeing Kavanaugh's name on the short list of candidates for a Supreme Court appointment made her feel it was her "civic duty" to share what had happened.

Menaker says she has never watched Mitchell prosecute a case, but the organization has "nothing negative to say" about her as a person or professional.

"I feel we shouldn't disadvantage Dr. Ford any more than she's already been disadvantaged", he said, according to the Washington Post. Democrats have continued calling for delays to the hearing and the committee vote until the FBI investigates allegations against Kavanaugh.

But the timing of the accusations, released by Avenatti just before a Senate Judiciary Committee vote which has been scheduled by Republicans for Friday, has raised some eyebrows.

Gaithersburg High School said that Swetnick said she graduated in 1980 and that the school would not have any other statements.

Asked to address the nation's young men, Trump said: "It's a very risky period in our country, and it's being perpetrated by some very evil people".

"I'm not sure she wanted to be public - her letter was leaked, people started showing up at her house", Guerry said. He also submitted two written statements, one on Monday and a second, more in-depth statement on Wednesday.

Indeed, it is only by virtue of Falcinelli’s prowess in the final third that Crotone still remains in contention to survive. In Romelu Lukaku, Koeman has a player with the capability of firing Everton to far headier heights than seventh place.

While Mr Trump pledged to listen to the testimony of Mr Kavanaugh's accuser and even said he was open to changing his mind about his nominee, he made clear that he was deeply sceptical of these types of accusations.

Trump said that if lawmakers had moved faster, "you wouldn't be talking about it right now, which is frankly what I would have preferred".

They include Senator Jeff Flake, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee that begins its hearing at 1400 GMT on Thursday. "It's ridiculous. Total twilight zone.

I tried to yell for help", Christine Blasey Ford will tell United States lawmakers, according to prepared testimony that she will deliver at a high-profile hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She said Kavanaugh held her down, put his hand over her mouth to silence her, and tried to remove her clothes.

Democratic members of the Committee called for immediate withdrawal of Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.

Kavanaugh, who this week with the White House launched a major counteroffensive to save his nomination, in a television interview with Fox News on Monday said he has never sexually assaulted anyone.

That is the year when Ms Ford says she believes the assault occurred.

Feinstein pushed back during her subsequent remarks, pointing out that most sexual assaults go unreported and that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men will experience some form of sexual violence in their lives.
