Kavanaugh accuser speaks to newspaper on record

Kavanaugh accuser speaks to newspaper on record

The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when they were teenagers has come forward to The Washington Post.

Blasey spoke to The Washington Post in an exclusive report about the event in question: more specifically, a summer evening in the 1980s in which Kavanaugh was "stumbling drunk" and assaulted her in a bedroom at a party.

"I believe that the member that first received that letter was as late as July, and quite honestly, I'm shocked that the matter didn't come up in the almost 32 hours of testimony that Judge Kavanaugh was before us, in the open sessions or the almost hour, hour and a half session that we had in a closed session", Tillis said Sunday.

At a high school house party, "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing", Ford claimed, and said both Kavanaugh and a friend were extremely intoxicated during the incident, which happened when they were in high school. "That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day".

The White House's only comment Sunday was the re-send to the Post Judge Kavanaugh's statement from last week that "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation". Judge Kavanaugh has denied the reports.

Federal Bureau of Investigation request: Diane Feinstein has referred a letter she has received to the Justice Department.

"I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. I did not do this back in high school or at any time", he said.

Feinstein called a meeting on Wednesday at which she disclosed the contents of the letter to committee Democrats, but did not show the letter itself, according to a source familiar with the discussions.

A spokeswoman for Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., declined to confirm reports that the congresswoman had forwarded a letter containing the allegations to Feinstein. Eshoo passed it to Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee that is weighing Kavanaugh's nomination.

Before details of the allegation surfaced on Friday, Senate Republicans pointed out that an extensive background check was already completed by the White House and reviewed by the committee.

"Senator Schumer promised to 'oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have, ' and it appears he is delivering with this 11th-hour attempt to delay his confirmation", Kupec said.

The allegation came just one week before the Senate Judiciary Committee is to vote on his nomination.

"Now, Ford has decided that if her story is going to be told, she wants to be the one to tell it", the Post wrote.

Shortly after Feinstein's statement was released, White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec criticized the timing. She recalled both her own and Justice Antonin Scalia's "truly bipartisan" hearings.
