Trump Says He Feels 'Terribly' for Brett Kavanaugh Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

White House is Planning an Attack on Kavanaugh Accuser, Christine Blasey Ford

The woman who accuses US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her will not testify to the Senate next week, says her lawyer.

But with the Kavanaugh confirmation process - already a noisy pageant of political charges, fierce lobby campaigns and passionate protests - roiled by 11th-hour claims that as a 17-year-old high school student he sexually assaulted a young woman, the American capital is convulsed in one of the periodic episodes that seems to capture the zeitgeist of the age.

"He spoke about acts that he had seen in pornographic films", Anita Hill testified more than two decades ago when the Senate Judiciary Committee was holding hearings on the nomination of Clarence Thomas.

"If they delay a little bit just to make sure everybody's happy - they want to be happy", said Trump.

Sen. Collins: "That's very puzzling to me..."

Meanwhile, key members the Trump administration, including the president himself, continue to defend Kavanaugh.

Asked if he had offered to withdraw from the process, Trump snarled: "Next question". There is an alleged witness and accomplice, Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone.

Facebook is being sued for hiding job ads from women
In the past, the company has faced criticism about its advertising platform and whether its systems allow for discrimination. That said, Facebook "has been swift to try and address the other problems when approached".

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa (L), accompanied by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary panel. We believe Dr. Blasey Ford and are grateful that she came forward to tell her story.

"We do, in 2018, get it", said Hill, now a professor at Brandeis University.

A group of women who attended Holton-Arms have begun to circulate a letter of support for Ford.

"Nothing of substance and nothing legitimate can happen by Monday", Lisa Banks, an attorney for Ford, told CNN. She said he covered her mouth with his hand as she attempted to scream.

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", she was quoted as saying in the newspaper. "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing". They say her family has relocated. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the accusations.

The article also goes into great detail on the current state of the hearing, the potential testimony from Kavanaugh and Ford, and how Democrats and Republicans are handling the situation.

However, as Kavanaugh-who already was deeply unpopular before Ford's allegations were made public-hasn't given any indication that he will stop seeking a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court, other advocacy groups and Democratic lawmakers are calling for a delay of any confirmation vote until the Federal Bureau of Investigation can fully investigate Ford's claims.
