Why Mark Judge’s Statement on the Kavanaugh-Ford Situation Is Ultimately Meaningless

George W. Bush stands by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual misconduct allegation

"Simply put, a week's preparation is not enough time for meaningful inquiry into very serious charges." - and even something as simple as referring to Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, by name. They are insisting that the hearing be delayed to further explore the allegations.

The Supreme Court nominee issued a statement Monday vociferously denying the allegation.

Flake said Monday he won't decide how he'll vote until Ford and Kavanaugh have testified.

Grassley's office released a letter from Judge's attorney on Tuesday with a statement from him saying he has "no memory" of the incident. "It's a process, speaking for all of the Republicans, we want to give everybody a chance to say what they want to say".

Kavanaugh has denied her accusations.

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I've ever known".

Ford said she will participate in any proceedings she is invited to take part in.

On Monday a spokesperson for the Justice Department indicated that the FBI does not get involved in matters unless a federal crime is alleged and that it had completed its work related to Kavanaugh's background check.

The committee's chairman, Iowa Sen. He said he had "no more information to offer the Committee and I do not wish to speak publicly regarding the incidents described" by Ford.

Democrats have said they wanted more time for the FBI to investigate - and more witnesses besides Kavanaugh and Ford, hoping to avoid what would turn into merely a "he-said-she-said" moment.

"I feel so badly for him that he's going through this", the president said. "Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday". For one thing, the committee was made up of 14 white men, and there were only two women in the entire Senate at the time. But she ultimately decided not to come forward with her allegation.

Kavanaugh was seen Monday morning arriving at the White House, which has stood by the judge in the face of the accusations. Joe Manchin said both Ford and Kavanaugh should have an opportunity to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee "as quickly as possible". Ford told the Post that she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17 when the alleged attack took place.

Christine Blasey Ford, a 51-year-old California professor, accused Kavanaugh of groping her and trying to take her clothes off when they were both attending suburban Maryland high schools in the early 1980s. "The senators will do a good job" reviewing the allegation.

While Ford initially sought to keep her allegation confidential, she said she opted to go public once the allegation emerged in the public eye and reporters began pursuing her. "She's surely prepared. She hired a lawyer, I understand, back in August".

And Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen, who is challenging Heller, said that if Heller still has "no reservations" about confirming Kavanaugh, "then he isn't listening to Nevadans".

"The need for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to perform its due diligence has become even more important in light of Chairman Grassley's announcement that he plans to move forward with a hearing on this matter next Monday", all 10 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee said in a letter.

Hyde-Smith, who became the first woman to represent MS after she was appointed this spring to replace former Sen.

Bob Corker also believes Kavanaugh's accuser should be heard out before the Judiciary Committee votes on his nomination, the Tennessee senator's spokesperson, Micah Johnson, said in a statement to CNN. When Anita Hill made her claims, sexual harassment wasn't something that was talked about a lot.
