Trump Says He Wants To Hear From Kavanaugh's Accuser

"Very hard for me to imagine that anything happened".

Debra Katz, a lawyer for Ford - who only came forward publicly on Sunday after trying to keep her name hidden for more than a month - had said earlier she was ready to speak under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Lawyers for California college professor Christine Blasey Ford said Tuesday she wants the FBI to investigate her claims before she appears at a Senate hearing.

Writing in the New York Times Tuesday, Hill used her own experience as an example of why Ford's allegations should not be dismissed out of hand. "We want to get to the bottom of everything". I think he's a man of great intellect, as I've been telling you, and he had this unblemished record. "At the same time, however, her worst fears have materialized".

"Compare that to the 22 witnesses at the 1991 Anita Hill hearing and it's impossible to take this process seriously", Feinstein said. "You don't wait until the hearing is over and then, all of a sudden, bring it up", Trump said.

As the alleged assault Ford describes is not a federal crime, only the White House could order the FBI to investigate - an action Trump has rejected saying the FBI has already conducted six background checks on Kavanaugh. Ford claimed to The Washington Post that she ultimately got away despite Kavanaugh and another boy turning the music up and covered her mouth so no one could hear her cries.

Democrats have pushed back on the hearing. In a follow-up tweet, she said she deleted her previous post "because it served its goal and I am now dealing with a slew of requests for interviews from The Wash Post, CNN, CBS News".

The FBI could interview Ford, Kavanaugh and others about the allegation if Trump asked the bureau to reopen its background investigation.

Lisa Banks: "Any talk of a hearing on Monday, frankly, is premature, because she just came forward with these allegations 48 hours ago".

President Trump questioned on Wednesday why Sen.

Democrats are hoping to wrest control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans on 6 November, dealing a serious blow to the president's agenda.

"When I first chose to run, everybody said the single most important thing you do is the Supreme Court justice", he said.

One witness the Democrats want to hear from is Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge, who Ford said was in the room when she was assaulted.

Republicans are seeking to ensure Kavanaugh receives Senate approval this month, before the Supreme Court resumes deliberations October 1.

Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, released Judge's statement after the committee's staff reached out to him about testifying in front of a Senate panel. She says she escaped when Judge jumped on the bed.

'I have no memory of this alleged incident, ' he wrote in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee sent via his attorney.

The attorney also stated that before her client appears at the hearing, she wants an FBI investigation into Mr Kavanaugh.

"Christine Blasey Ford was a year or so behind me, I remember her", Miranda said in a tweet that can still be viewed via the Google cache.

"I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh".

"As a result of these kind of threats, her family was forced to relocate out of their home".

Trump has repeatedly said that he is open to delaying the confirmation process, but has continued to praise Kavanaugh as an "outstanding" person and to accuse Democrats of playing politics with his nomination.

Back in 1991, however, the FBI did investigate sexual harassment claims against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.
