'Trying to attack me': Kavanaugh accuser reveals details of alleged sexual misconduct

In response, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) published a letter from 65 women who say they knew Kavanaugh in high school and vouched for his good character.

Senator Diane Feinstein, the top Judiciary Committee Democrat, issued a statement calling for a delay.

But Senator Jeff Flake, a committee member, told The Washington Post and Politico in interviews on Sunday that he is "not comfortable" voting for Mr Kavanaugh until he learns more about the allegation. The confirmation MUST BE DELAYED so the FBI can investigate this extremely serious matter.

A woman is accusing Kavanaugh of assaulting her when they were high schoolers in the early 1980s, and she relayed the claim in a letter to Democratic Sen. He repeated that denial again on Sunday through the White House.

Cabrera, after reading the letter, said it was important to note that Kavanaugh has "categorically and unequivocally" denied the allegations made in the matter.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has completed its hearings on Kavanaugh and had plans to vote this week.

Katz said lawmakers had not yet reached out to request Ford's testimony as the Senate considers Kavanaugh's nomination for the Supreme Court.

The New York Yankees won the series, winning 8-1, losing 11-0, and winning 11-1 to make up some ground on their rivals. Despite sitting on top for much of the season, the Boston Red Sox are expected to lose steam as the season progresses.

Feinstein called on the FBI to investigate Ford's story "before the Senate moves forward on this nominee". Bob Corker of Tennessee, said the vote should be postponed until the committee heard from Ford.

Ms Ford had contacted the Post through a tip line in early July after it had become clear that Mr Kavanaugh was on Mr Trump's shortlist to fill a vacancy but before the Republican president nominated him, the newspaper said.

Ford alleges that the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her in high school, and recounted her story to The Washington Post.

So now we're going all the way back to a nominee's high school days, are we? "We can all be accused of something". Ginsburg was confirmed in two months by a vote of 96-to-3. "Judge Kavanaugh and the White House both stand by that statement". "A vote on Kavanaugh's nomination must be delayed until there is a thorough investigation", Sen. He called Roe an "important precedent" during his Senate Judiciary confirmation hearing but refused to say whether the ruling was correct. Kavanaugh has denied the incident ever happened. Female voters preferred Democratic candidates over Republican ones by 54 per cent to 33 per cent, while 62 per cent of women disapproved of Trump's job performance, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll in July.

While his friend watched, Ford said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes.

However, if Ms. Ford wishes to provide information to the Committee, I would gladly listen to what she has to say and compare that against all the other information we have received about Judge Kavanaugh.

Her husband, Russell Ford, said she spoke of being trapped in a room with two drunken boys. Ford, now a California professor, believes Kavanaugh's alleged actions were "attempted rape" and "that if it were not for the severe intoxication of Brett Kavanaugh, she would have been raped", Katz told NBC's "Today" program. She said she managed to escape after the friend, Mark Judge, jumped on them, sending them tumbling and giving her an opportunity to get out of the room.
