Anita Hill says FBI investigation needed

UNITED STATES- NOVEMBER 16 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell R-Ky. talks with an aide in the Capitol after the House passed the GOP's tax reform bill

Attorneys for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during their high school years in the 1980s, wants "a full investigation by law enforcement officials" of the alleged incident.

"It's really a way of dismissing her and suggesting that her memory isn't clear", Guerry said.

Prof Ford declined to testify unless the FBI begins investigating the judge.

In their letter to Grassley, the Judiciary Committee chairman, Ford's lawyers have said that she is willing to "cooperate" with the panel. The president also called the treatment of Kavanaugh "very unfair" and said that his nominee is "such an outstanding man, it's very hard for me to imagine anything happened".

"No, I'm not", Mr Trump said when asked if he was concerned what Manafort might say. She's faced death threats, according to her attorneys, and her family has been forced to move out of their home. Chuck Grassley says the FBI does not need to look into the sexual-assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because Republicans are conducting their own investigation.

The letter comes after a day of uncertainty about whether the hearing scheduled for Monday would even take place, as Republicans continued to emphasize their repeated efforts to reach out to Ford.

A substantial delay could push confirmation past the November elections - when Democrats have a shot at winning Senate control - plus allow more time for unforeseen problems to pop up.

Tesla Reportedly Under Criminal Investigation Following Elon Musk's Tweets
Musk has since said he plans to keep the company public but the potential market manipulation already took place. Crimmins said Musk "speaks loosely", but his conduct probably doesn't rise to the criminal level.


Hill, now a professor at Brandeis University, told ABC News that senators should halt the Kavanaugh hearing to avoid a "sham" proceeding and the FBI should investigate Ford's allegations.

Feinstein said late on Monday that with Hill's allegations the FBI had carried out an investigation. President Donald Trump: "It wouldn't bother me, other than the FBI, John said, that they really don't do that".

He said that "if she does not show up it would be unfortunate".

He added: "Hopefully the woman will come forward, state her case".

That underscores a desire to avoid antagonising female voters at a time when the #MeToo movement has made sexual abuse a major political dynamic.

Trump did not comment directly on Ford's claim that a drunken Kavanaugh and one of his friends trapped her in a room and attempted to pull her clothes off at a high school party in 1982.

Another former classmate of Judge Brett Kavanaugh has denied having any knowledge of a high school party where the future Supreme Court nominee allegedly sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford. Some could even call a presidential order for the FBI to investigate a state-law matter to be an abuse of power.

Kansas City McDonald's workers to join nationwide protest on sexual harassment
In a statement, McDonald's said that it had "strong policies, procedures and training in place" to prevent sexual harassment. Since our founding, we've been committed to a culture that fosters the respectful treatment of everyone.


The scandal, erupting just before the Senate Judiciary Committee had been due to vote on Kavanaugh, ignited an uproar fueled by the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment.

They are also unlikely to agree on an alternative date and the hearing could still go ahead without Mrs Ford.

But he also dismissed the idea that the FBI should investigate the incident, something Blasey Ford had called for before she testifies.

Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, released Judge's statement after the committee's staff reached out to him about testifying in front of a Senate panel.

Democrats complain that Ford was not consulted before the hearing was announced.

In a tweet Tuesday night, Trump wrote: "The Supreme Court is one of the main reasons I got elected President".

No matter the outcome, Democrats should be held responsible for circumventing the process that protects people like Ford, Hatch said.
