Where Did Christine Blasey Ford Go to High School?

Where Did Christine Blasey Ford Go to High School?

"In the meantime, I hope Ms. Blasey Ford receives the respect and dignity to which she is entitled".

That the president's senior counselor, Kellyanne Conway, swiftly advocated listening to the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault points to the power of the #MeToo movement - and of women in politics.

"The hearing was scheduled for six short days from today and would include interrogation by Senators who appear to have made up their minds that she is "mistaken" and 'mixed up, '" the lawyers wrote on Ford's behalf. Kavanaugh and his accuser, psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford, had been expected to testify Monday before Ford's attorney sent a letter on Tuesday night asking first for an FBI investigation.

Until Monday, Trump had remained silent about the allegations against Kavanaugh. Harry Reid (D) of Nevada, when he was Senate majority leader.

Leahy, the most senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced last Thursday in the Washington Post that he would vote against Kavanaugh's confirmation.

And what is it going to be like for Christine Blasey Ford, in your view?

"No, because the last minute is the accelerated time they set", Leahy said. Thomas went on to be confirmed.

Still, Conway and other Republicans are going out of their way to say they want Ford and Kavanaugh to be heard. There are an bad lot of questions, inconsistencies, gaps.

An activist group focused on promoting a conservative judiciary has begun buying $1.5m media ads to defend Kavanaugh.

"If it takes a little delay, it'll take a little delay", Trump said. We believe Dr. Blasey Ford and are grateful that she came forward to tell her story. The least we can do is hear what she has to say - and how Kavanaugh responds.

"We have to create an environment where women can come forward and be heard and be listened to", she said.

Kavanaugh, now 53, called the allegation "completely false" in a statement, adding that he "had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself" to the Post. "I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities", Feinstein said.

Friends: Brett Kavanaugh (right) and Mark Judge (left) played football together and were at a school Judge has described in two memoirs as "positively swimming in alcohol". I think that this hearing should never occur in America. However, he also said that he reached out to Ford "three or four times" and had not received a response. The Justice Department seems to agree.

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I've ever known".

Democrats further criticized the process of document releases because Bush's lawyer Bill Burck, who previously worked under Kavanaugh in the White House, was responsible for reviewing documents for release from Bush's presidential library.

But while Ford has yet to accept the invite and Democrats are advocating for a completed FBI investigation before any hearing takes place, Republicans on the fence about Kavanaugh are already hinting that a no-show means the process will have to go on as planned and unlikely to nudge them toward voting against his confirmation.

Speaking on the Senate floor Monday afternoon, the Kentucky senator accused Democrats of introducing the charge at "the 11th hour" in a final effort to sink the nomination after dozens of opportunities to bring it up.

How this all will play out in detail remains to be seen. If all other Republicans support Kavanaugh - which before the allegations appeared to be the case - the GOP would still need at least one of the two centrist senators, assuming no Democrats cross party lines. Republicans want to stay on track - aiming for a confirmation vote before October 1, when the court begins its new term.

The alleged incident happened at a small party the summer before Ford's junior year, Ford's lawyer, Lisa Banks, said in an interview with Morning Edition's Rachel Martin. She said President George H.W. Bush had asked the FBI to investigate Anita Hill's allegations against Thomas.

Asked by Hewitt if he was considering including a female counsel who would ask questions, Grassley said, "All those things are being taken into consideration". "You've got to re-open the hearing". It's the men in this country, and I just want to say to the men of this country, just shut up and step up.
