Donald Trump's conservative US Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh denies allegation of sexual misconduct...

The letter apparently has been in the custody of Judiciary Committee member Sen.
On Thursday, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, announced cryptically that she had forwarded to the Federal Bureau of Investigation "information from an individual concerning the nomination". But the bureau didn't take the bait.
The FBI confirmed that it received the information Wednesday evening and included it in Kavanaugh's background file, which is maintained as part of his nomination.
"I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation, I did not do this back in high school or at any time", he said in a statement. During a party, he allegedly held down and tried to force himself on a student from another school. Judge Kavanaugh has denied the reports.
The White House called Feinstein's move an "11th hour attempt to delay his confirmation". No one would mistake me for a Trump supporter. She didn't say anything in the confirmation hearing, she didn't say anything in our confidential session with Judge Kavanaugh when the senators and nominee met privately. He said he has not seen the letter and plans to seek more information about the timing of its release. But the allegation has inflamed an already intense political battle over President Donald Trump's nominee.
Dick Durbin of IL, the No 2 Democrat in the Senate, called on Saturday for the committee vote to be delayed, tweeting: "The American people deserve to know who Judge Kavanaugh is, but Republicans are trying to rush through this nomination while concealing critical parts of the nominee's record".
Senate Republicans on Friday released a letter from 65 women who knew Kavanaugh during his high school years vouching for his character.

Feinstein's spokesman Tom Mentzer said last week that the senator "took these allegations seriously and believed they should be public", but, "the woman in question made it clear she did not want this information to be public".
"Supreme Court justices should not be an extension of the Republican Party".
The letter, which was sent to Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Calif.), was subsequently passed on to Feinstein, people familiar with the matter said.
A full vote by the Senate is expected by the end of the month. Many say Collins, a Republican, could be a deciding vote.

Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh's classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them and sent them tumbling.
