Kavanaugh accuser speaks to newspaper on record

Anita Hill Calls for an Investigation into the Allegation of Sexual Abuse Against Brett Kavanaugh

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has denied an allegation of sexual misconduct from when he was in high school, seeking to defuse a potential threat to his confirmation as a handful of key senators remained silent on whether they would vote for him. She claimed in the letter that Kavanaugh and a classmate of his, both of whom had been drinking, turned up music that was playing in the room to hide the sound of her protests, and that Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand.

Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh's classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them and sent them tumbling.

Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegations against him.

The allegation against Kavanaugh prompted a public statement from Anita Hill, who famously accused Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearings in 1991.

Over 722,000 without power as Florence batters Carolinas
Officials said some 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to evacuate, but it was unclear how many did. Almost 900,000 homes and businesses were without power in the Carolinas early on Friday, utility officials said.


The newspaper said Ford first made contact via an anonymous tip line earlier in the summer, when Kavanaugh's name began to be linked to the supreme court position. The New Yorker reported the letter claims that Kavanaugh unsuccessfully attempted to force himself on her at a high school party.

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, a Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he won't let Kavanaugh's confirmation be stalled by the allegation, which he called "wholly unverifiable".

In her first public comments on the incident, which came to light last week after Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Dianne Feinstein referred a "letter" describing a sexual assault to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, she described what happened when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.

"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. Eshoo then referred the letter to Feinstein. Sources told NPR that the California senator felt pressure to put something out publicly after a report indicated she had not briefed fellow members of the panel on a document.

Sheriff: Border Patrol agent suspected of killing 4 women
The Texas Department of Public Safety, whose Texas Rangers are investigating, did not return several messages seeking comment. Mr Alaniz said investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the killings, and that they believe Ortiz acted alone.


For several days, Feinstein declined requests for the woman's letter from other Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, the New Yorker reported.

Dick Durbin of IL, the No 2 Democrat in the Senate, called on Saturday for the committee vote to be delayed, tweeting: "The American people deserve to know who Judge Kavanaugh is, but Republicans are trying to rush through this nomination while concealing critical parts of the nominee's record". Eshoo passed it to Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee that is weighing Kavanaugh's 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. Feinstein declined to comment beyond the statement. She said a reporter from Buzzfeed approached her outside her college classroom and another reporter was calling her colleagues. She told the Post: "Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation".
