Kavanaugh accuser wants FBI investigation before she will testify: lawyer

He will state his case before representatives of the United States Senate. The president said he was "totally supporting" Kavanaugh and rejected calls for the FBI to investigate the accusation. Should the Federal Bureau of Investigation be allowed to investigate? She sent a letter to her congresswoman, Rep. Anna Eshoo, in July, which made its way to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the ranking member (R), speaks during a Senate Judiciary Committee markup meeting on Capitol Hill, Sept. 13, 2018, in Washington. She discussed the incident publicly with The Washington Post for the first time on Sunday. From there, she claims she was pushed into a bedroom and on top of a bed, where she said Kavanaugh, then 17, attacked her.

In the interview with Seven Days, Leahy said he learned of Blasey Ford's allegations last week, when he was pulled of the floor of the Senate during a debate over a trio of appropriations bills. "More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes".

The Senate Judiciary Committee, which is overseeing the nomination, has called a hearing for Monday to look into the matter, and the White House has said Kavanaugh was ready to testify.

Earlier Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee moved to postpone the confirmation vote for Kavanaugh, which had been scheduled for Thursday.

"Dr. Ford may have been forced into the limelight against her will, just as Anita Hill was, but the treatment she receives should be different", wrote Lapidus. Monday's planned hearing seems to be following a similar pattern. "We are working diligently to get to the bottom of these claims". She said Judge was in the room as well and that both boys were "stumbling drunk" and laughing while Kavanaugh held her down and tried to remove her clothes.

Republicans responded that reopening the investigation is up to the White House and they are sticking with their plans for a Monday hearing - with or without Ford's participation.

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, who is on the Judiciary Committee, said Republicans are "naturally" concerned about the optics of having only Republican men question Ford "because there's always a lot of prejudice in these matters".

"So it kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?"

Democrats would argue that other witnesses could provide context, verify or refute parts of the stories that either person tells.

"Laura and I have known and respected Brett Kavanaugh for decades, and we stand by our comments the night Judge Kavanaugh was nominated", Bush said in a statement to Politico.
