Bill Schuette says Senate should move forward on Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh is led by committee chairman Republican Chuck Grassley during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing on September 4

President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh looked to be on a clear path to confirmation. The similar tones and wording they used in defending him suggested a concerted effort to undermine the women's claims and portray an image of unity among GOP senators while pressing toward a confirmation vote. "I know Brett. I know who he is", said Ashley, adding that she does not know what happened to Ford, but that she feels badly for her family through this process.

On Monday, people across the U.S. walked out of schools and workplaces in solidarity with the women who have accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Chuck Grassley, and asked that the new allegation be referred to the FBI for investigation. "And they just want to obfuscate that by calling it politically motivated".

There were no immediate indications that the emergence of a second accuser had fatally wounded Kavanaugh's prospects.

"These are smears, pure and simple".

The White House, she said, "stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh". She accused Kavanaugh of pinning her down on a bed and covering her mouth so she could not make noise as he tried to remove her clothing.

Foy said the committee is also looking into comments by lawyer Michael Avenatti Sunday that he represents a woman with information about high school-era parties attended by Kavanaugh. She said, "I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted".

"I have never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not ever". As I have said before, every accuser deserves to be heard. "I have faith in God, and I have faith in the fairness of the American people", he said.

But the magazine failed to confirm any eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at a reported party held at Yale University, at which Deborah Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and forced her to touch his genitals.

Ford claimed that during her high school years, Kavanaugh, along with another Georgetown Prep student at the time, cornered her in a room at a party. The Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein, has called on the panel's Republican chairman, Senator Chuck Grassley, to postpone Thursday's hearing in order to investigate Ramirez's accusations.

Trump was told about the New Yorker allegations Sunday in the hours before the piece's explosive publication, according to a White House official not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

Collins said Monday she remained undecided about Kavanaugh.

The majority leader noted the unsubstantiated nature of the allegations against Kavanaugh. Even if you can't walk out, you can still post a photo or video.

A person working on Kavanaugh's confirmation backed up the Times account of the calendars to The Associated Press.

Meanwhile, Lindsey Graham - a member of the panel that must approve Kavanaugh´s nomination before it goes to the full chamber - summed up the position of many Republicans by saying he did not expect Ford´s testimony to change his mind.

Away from Washington, there were walkouts in support of Ford and Ramirez by dozens of liberal groups.

Even before the latest turns, the carefully negotiated hearing at the Senate Judiciary Committee with Kavanaugh and Ford carried echoes of the Anita Hill hearings in 1991.

In a story Sunday, The New Yorker says Deborah Ramirez recalled Kavanaugh exposing himself at a drunken dormitory party. Prior to that six-day, lawyer-assisted, memory session, she couldn't name him as the culprit.

Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway told CBS on Monday that the accusations against Kavanaugh sound like "a vast left-wing conspiracy", using rhetoric that echoed Hillary Clinton's 1998 description of allegations that her husband, President Bill Clinton, had had affairs.
