After days of restraint, Trump lashes out at alleged Kavanaugh victim

For some teachers Kavanaugh's nomination is a civics lesson for the #MeToo era

You've watched the fight, you've watched the tactics, but here's what I want to tell you: "In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court", McConnell said. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation.

Eshoo relayed the accusation to Sen. Grassley wrote in a Wednesday letter to Democrats on the Judiciary Committee that the FBI investigated Hill's accusations against Thomas when they were still not public.

Republicans have largely stuck to the Monday timeline, as well as Grassley's decision to limit the hearing to two witnesses: Kavanaugh and Ford.

Ford told the Republican-led Judiciary panel that she would be willing to testify later next week.

"So, my friends, keep the faith". Susan Collins of ME and Jeff Flake of Arizona - said that unless Ford testified Monday they would move on to Kavanagh's vote. Mark Judge, the other classmate identified in the allegation, also denied the incident occurred.

Taylor Foy, spokesman for Republicans who control the committee, said in a written statement, "We are happy that Dr. Ford's attorneys are now engaging with the Committee".

Jettisoning the relative restraint he's shown on the subject the past several days, POTUS's tweets follow previous night's Vegas rally interview with Fox News's Sean Hannity in which Trump attacked Ford herself for not coming forward with her allegation 36 years ago.

Gary Cohn Waffles on Bob Woodward Book

The New $1,449 iPhone Won't Include A Free Headphone Dongle
In terms of price , the iPhone XR retails for less than the iPhone XS , costing $749 to pick up at launch. The iPhone SE was a high selling model in developing markets due its cheaper price .

Ford alleges that at a party in high school, Kavanaugh pushed her into a bedroom along with his former classmate and that Kavanaugh attempted to remove her clothes.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee for the high court, of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers.

Trump tweeted Friday that Kavanaugh has an "impeccable reputation" and that Democrats "don't want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay". Trump continued, "I go through this with them ever single day in D.C".

Since Ford has filled out the troubling details of her accusation and attached her name to them, they can not treated so casually. Trump and other Republicans, cautious of alienating women, have treated Ford carefully while calling for a quick vote.

Conway told CNN on Friday, "Let's not conflate the larger #MeToo movement with whatever did nor did not happen in the summer of 1982". Even Harriet Myers - whose beleaguered nomination eventually was withdrawn by President George W. Bush - maintained a net level of support when she was nominated for the Supreme Court in 2005. As the President defends Kavanaugh, he has also started to more forcefully question the credibility of his accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, says he offered Ford different options for how she'll give her testimony but dismissed her request for an FBI investigation. And there has yet to emerge anything that establishes this as a pattern of behavior for the Supreme Court nominee. That aide wasn't authorised to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
