Kavanaugh accuser speaks to newspaper on record

Feinstein explains decision to keep letter making claims against Kavanaugh private

Multiple reports have found that a letter held by Senate Democrats contains allegations from an unnamed woman who says that Kavanaugh and another man attempted to sexually assault her when they were all in high school.

Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh's classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them and sent them tumbling.

As it stands now, this is simply an attempt to smear a man who had an impeccable reputation in high school. Tillis said he believes Kavanaugh will win confirmation by the Senate. It also pushes the #MeToo movement into the court fight, less than two months before congressional elections that have seen a surge of female Democratic candidates.

The woman, from a nearby high school, was allegedly at a party where the youths were drinking alcohol.

Tillis, who is a member of the Judiciary Committee, said he was "shocked" that the allegation was not raised during Kavanaugh's public or private confirmation hearings. They were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

In the past week, Democratic lawmakers and liberal media outlets have repeated the uncorroborated account with few details and the woman unnamed.

The letter apparently has been in the custody of Judiciary Committee member Sen.

President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, takes notes as the Senate Judiciary Committee members make opening statements during his confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington on September 4.

"Every accuser deserves to be heard. He has served in the Office of Independent Counsel, the White House, and on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, all before his nomination earlier this year to serve as Associate Justice on the Supreme Court", she said. One activist group favoring abortion choice, NARAL, called on Kavanaugh to withdraw from consideration.

The storm is still leaving a path of destruction across the two states, despite its top sustained wind speeds weakening to 72km/h. It was crawling west-southwest at 3 miles per hour , lifting huge amounts of ocean moisture and dumping it far from the coast.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, is pushing ahead with plans for a committee vote on Kavanaugh's nomination next Thursday.

Reporters, Ford said, had begun to make contact with her after the anonymous description emerged. It had been a previously scheduled follow-up to an initial visit that Kavanaugh made to her office in August.

If Collins or Murkowski should vote for Kavanaugh, he is likely to be confirmed.

"I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court", Feinstein said in her surprise statement. "There's really not much that can be done unless this person comes forward and you can see this and talk to the person who wrote that letter". It added the letter to Kavanaugh's file but has not opened a criminal investigation. The agency said that is its standard process.

On Thursday, Feinstein said she had received "information" regarding Kavanaugh and has passed it on to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Feinstein has give the letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Kavanaugh has denied the he ever took part in an assault on Ford.

However, Hill wants senators to put a process into place that will allow the accusation to be treated seriously.

Hill said Friday, "The reluctance of someone to come forward demonstrates that even in the #MeToo era, it remains incredibly hard to report harassment, abuse or assault by people in power".
