A Senate committee may be forced to postpone its vote this week on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, while members explore fresh allegations of a decades-old sexual assault.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court remains "on track" despite a woman's allegation that the judge sexually assaulted her in 1982, while the accuser and the nominee both offered to testify publicly.

"Her recollection of these events is crystal clear", Ford's attorney Lisa Banks told Morning Edition. Asked if that included sworn testimony at a public hearing before senators, Katz told CBS's "This Morning" program:"She's willing to do what she needs to do". Ford alleged that at this party, she was pushed into a bedroom and an inebriated Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed while his friend Mark Judge was watching and laughing.

"We got to take these examples of sexual assault very seriously, and she's charged him, and we also have a request from Kavanaugh that he wants to give his side of the story", Grassley told reporters.

Kavanaugh said he would be willing to talk to the committee to refute the allegations, according to a statement released by the White House on September 17.

The White House counselor, Kellyanne Conway. "I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone", Kavanaugh said in a statement issued by the White House, his first comment since Ford's identity was revealed on Sunday.

HORSLEY: The White House is standing behind the president's nominee.

After her Fox News appearance on Monday, Conway told reporters at the White House that Kavanaugh has been vetted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on six occasions. "This woman will be heard".

Subsequently appeals were filed in Islamaba High Court to suspend the jail sentence against the Sharifs. In July 2017, the Pakistani Supreme Court disqualified Sharif from office over corruption allegations.


The GOP-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee appeared committed to a vote later this week, despite Ms Ford's account in The Washington Post. "So, you know, clearly, somebody's mixed up".

"She should be heard", Conway said, adding that the process "should not unduly delay the vote on Judge Kavanaugh". All 10 Democrats who sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee are now calling for the committee chair, Republican Senator Charles Grassley, to delay the scheduled vote on the nomination, which is supposed to happen on Thursday.

"He's already testified for over 24 hours, I think we're closer to 30 hours, he and others, including women right, left and center ideologically who support him, testified to his character and integrity", she added.

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", said Ford, 51, a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California.

He told Milwaukee radio station WTMJ Monday that it would be "appropriate" for the committee to listen to both Ford and Kavanaugh, and that he's "not really sure where this goes from here". "If the committee is to hear from Ms. Ford, it should be done immediately so the process can continue as scheduled". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has the option of bringing Kavanaugh's confirmation to a floor vote without a recommendation from the committee.

"If there is real substance to this, it demands a response", Murkowski said. Remember; Democrats are in the minority. But faced with a growing Me Too movement, they are also sensitive about appearances.

On the evening of September 17, the committee still had a hearing scheduled for September 20 to vote on recommending Kavanaugh for a full Senate vote. "Dianne Feinstein", because of the senator's rank on the Judiciary Committee.

Feinstein announced Thursday that she had received a letter referencing an allegation against Kavanaugh but she did not provide specifics. "It was something that she struggled with mightily". She told the Post that her thinking was, "Why suffer through the annihilation if it's not going to matter?" Her attorney said Ford is "not motivated at all by politics".
