Female friends defend Kavanaugh against sexual assault allegation

Female friends defend Kavanaugh against sexual assault allegation

"We have to fight for him". Not anxious about the other side, ' Trump told a roaring crowd at a Friday night rally in Springfield, Missouri.

During the 2016 campaign, at least 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.

Earlier in the night, Grassley said on Twitter that he had granted an extension to Ford after a 10 p.m. (0200 GMT Saturday) deadline he set to reach a deal with Ford's lawyers had passed.

The Republicans will honor her request that Kavanaugh not be in the same room while Ford testifies and will provide security for her.

A group of 75 women also gathered on Friday to throw their support behind Kavanaugh in the midst of the scandal.

Fellow Republican Susan Collins of ME said she hoped Prof Ford would "reconsider and testify" on Monday.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party when they were both in high school. President Trump has also raised doubts about Ford's credibility, asking on Friday why she did not reveal her story earlier.

Before Friday's tweet, Trump had won praise for keeping his comments about Ford respectful, even while continuing to back his nominee to the hilt.

Senator Collins told reporters: 'I was appalled by the president's tweet'. "First of all, we know that allegations of sexual assault - I'm not saying that's what happened in this case - but we know allegations of sexual assault are one of the most unreported crimes that exist". So I thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate and wrong, ' she said.

O'Rourke, Cruz clash over shootings in debate
A recent poll conducted by Quinnipiac University showed Cruz leading O'Rourke by nine points. The congressional district where the debate is located is represented by a Republican, Rep.

Whelan has been involved in helping to advise Kavanaugh's confirmation effort and is close friends with both Kavanaugh and Leonard Leo, the head of the Federalist Society who has been helping to spearhead the nomination.

Dr Ford has yet to give her full account in public and said the FBI should investigate her claim. The bureau reports to him in the organizational structure of the government, and for these purposes acts as a kind of "contractor" for the White House, as former FBI assistant director Ron Hosko told NPR. I hope u understand.

After saying he wanted senators to take a "little delay" to look into the matter, Trump on Thursday night said of the hearing that it is time to "get on with it".

Trump supporters cheer during a rally at JQH Arena in Springfield, Missouri on Friday. "Why didn't someone call the Federal Bureau of Investigation 36 years ago?" he added.

What difference does it make who asks the questions? Another of the individuals that Ford identified as being in attendance at the party where the alleged assault took place, Kavanaugh's classmate Patrick Smyth, has denied ever participating in such an event as characterized. [Attorney Debra Katz] has discussed Ford's allegations in numerous media interviews and said on TV Monday morning that Dr. Ford wants to share her account with the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford revealed herself to be the accuser a few days later.

Ford has said through her lawyer that won't do. "Dr. Ford [has] asked me to let you know that she appreciates the various options you have suggested". 'Our modest request is that she be given an additional day to make her decision'.

Currently, Ford is still negotiating with Chairman Grassley about testifying in front of the Judiciary Committee sometime next week.

Prof Ford has been given until Friday to decide if she will testify. I'm providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford's attorneys don't respond or Dr. Ford decides not to testify. "We are unwilling to accommodate your unreasonable demands".
