Kavanaugh's prep school pal: Ford's wrong, I was never at party

Brett Kavanaugh with his family and Donald Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation should not investigate a California professor's allegations of sexual assault against Trump's pick for U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, adding that he wants his nominee confirmed quickly.

"Nothing of substance and nothing legitimate can happen by Monday", Lisa Banks, her attorney told CNN, referring to the next hearing of the judiciary committee hearing.

Democrats want to postpone the vote until after the midterm elections, citing 'serious questions about Judge Kavanaugh's record, truthfulness, and character'. The delay makes it increasingly hard for Kavanaugh to win approval by October 1, when the new session of the Supreme Court begins.

Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegation and has suggested California college professor Christine Blasey Ford's account could be a case of mistaken identity. Christine Blasey Ford-and Kavanaugh to both testify on Monday.

She claims that an intoxicated Kavanaugh pinned her down during a party in Marlyand and attempted to remove her clothing.

Grassley didn't say whether Thursday's committee vote will go forward. Meanwhile, President Trump dismissed the need for an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into her allegations.

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people I have ever known", Trump told reporters from the Oval Office. John Kennedy, a member of the Judiciary panel from Louisiana.

"They've given it a lot of time, they will continue to give it a lot of time, and really, it's up to the Senate", he said.

There was enormous pressure on GOP Sens. At one point, she says, Mr. Judge jumped on top of both of them, which caused them all to topple off the bed, enabling her to get free.

"Well, I would let the senators take their course", he said. Neither Collins nor Murkowski faces re-election this fall.

While she does not plan to testify, Ford's friends are coming to her defense, saying she does not have a political agenda.

Some Democrats raised questions about whether Grassley's planned hearings were sufficient.

That could result in a tense replay of the lurid 1991 hearing on Clarence Thomas, the conservative Supreme Court justice accused of repeated sexual harassment by a former assistant, Anita Hill.

"The FBI's role in such matters is to provide information for the use of the decision makers", the statement said. He has categorically denied the accusation.

The administration is gearing up for a counteroffensive, a White House official said. Democrats refused to participate, saying the seriousness of the charges merited a full FBI investigation.

There is the therapist to whom Ford says she revealed the alleged incident several years ago.

Republicans control the Senate by only a narrow margin, meaning any defections could sink the nomination and deal a major setback to Trump, who has been engaged in a so-far successful effort since becoming president previous year to move the Supreme Court and broader federal judiciary to the right. The FBI has told CBS News that it has included the allegation in Kavanaugh's background file, and is not opening any additional probe at this time, although the president could direct the FBI to take further action.

Ford has said that she would not appear before the Senate Judicial Committee without an FBI investigation. A Democratic aide and another person familiar with the letter confirmed Friday to The Associated Press that the allegation is sexual in nature.

Kavanaugh said in a statement on Monday that Ford made "a completely false allegation". We are talking about a lifetime appointment for Kavanaugh to the highest and most influential court in the country.

The Kavanaugh allegation was first presented to Sen. The president himself has faced accusations of affairs and unwanted advances - not to mention his taped comments about groping women that emerged shortly before he was elected in 2016. At the time, Ford reportedly expected her story to remain confidential and her identity anonymous.
