Mark Judge Says He Has 'No Recollection' of Incident

Mark Judge Says He Has 'No Recollection' of Incident”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the GOP will review the sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh "by the book" with bipartisan interviews on the Judiciary Committee.

It was not clear where and when Ford had identified Smyth as being present at the party.

Grassley sees no reason to delay a hearing further.

But the Department of Justice, referring back to a statement released Monday, says the Federal Bureau of Investigation fulfilled its role by forwarding a letter to the White House Counsel's Office. Days earlier Kavanaugh had seemed on track for quick approval.

Collins said that in a telephone conversation with Kavanaugh on Friday he was "absolutely emphatic" that the assault didn't occur. De Leon, who is challenging Feinstein in the November 6 election, said her actions amounted to a "failure of leadership". Blasey Ford asked for confidentiality, and the allegation was not made public - until this past weekend.

She will say anything if it is in the noble cause of advancing herself.

Republicans control the Senate by only a narrow margin, meaning any defections within the party could sink the nomination and deal a major setback to Trump. Flake's office didn't respond to requests for comment.

While Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the committee, has been criticized for how she's handled the allegations, she also expressed disappointment in Republicans and the Trump administration for "failing to take even the most basic steps to investigate this matter".

"These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid", Ford said to The Washington Post.

Ford, on the other hand, has demanded an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry before she testifies her charges at a US Senate hearing scheduled for next Monday. "I think he's very much on track".

Kavanaugh has denied the claim. Instead he suggested faith in the Senate to do its job.

The attorney also stated that before her client appears at the hearing, she wants an FBI investigation into Mr Kavanaugh. But he said that should be done immediately, "so the process can continue as scheduled".

"After learning of the allegation, Chairman Chuck Grassley took immediate action to endure both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh have the opportunity to be heard, in public or private", Sen. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time".

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

Kavanaugh has had a relatively smooth confirmation track until the allegations against him were reported last week.

Kavanaugh could provide the fifth vote to overturn the Roe v. Wade abortion-rights decision. "I hope Republican Voters, and others, are watching and studying, the Democrats Playbook".

"Obviously, if Judge Kavanaugh has lied about what happened, that would be disqualifying", Republican Senator Susan Collins told reporters before Grassley's announcement, adding she would like the chance to observe Ford, the California university professor who made the allegation, to decide the credibility of her account.

Blasey Ford has not confirmed whether she will testify publicly Monday, threatening what was expected to be a historic showdown with Kavanaugh.

There is the therapist to whom Ford says she revealed the alleged incident several years ago. "I am, anyway, and I think most of us are". She says she escaped when Judge jumped on the bed.

"As long as he tells the truth, it's 100%", Mr Trump said.

The Post said it viewed notes from that session and an individual therapy session the following year.

"If she shows up, that would be wonderful". She says that a small group of students were drinking at a home in suburban Maryland, and that Kavanaugh and a friend, Mark Judge, were heavily intoxicated. In 2006, Bush appointed him to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
