Kavanaugh issues new denial-of-sexual-misconduct allegation
In the statement released by the White house, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, he is willing to ‘talk to the Senate judiciary Committee in any manner that the Committee deems appropriate, to refute this false claim, of 36 years, and defend my integrity.’
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh violent sexual assault against him, allegations denied on Monday, saying he is ready to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee “in no way” the panel considered appropriate to place “the allegations”.
To give Kavanaugh ‘ s new statement after the White house said, the Committee leaned against the invitation of his accusers, Christine Ford, testimony in relation to the claims. Ford, through her lawyer, said she would be willing to appear before the Committee.
“This is a completely false claim. I’ve never done something that describes the Prosecutor said to her, or to anyone,” Kavanaugh, in the statement on Monday. “Because it never happens, I had no idea who made the accusation, until you identified yesterday. I’m ready to talk to the Senate judiciary Committee in any manner that the Committee deems appropriate, to refute this false claim, of 36 years, and defend my integrity.”
Kavanaugh was also in the White house on Monday, amid questions of whether the Committee still go or not with a vote on Thursday.
All 10 Democrats on the Committee on Monday, Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, demanded to move to the vote.
“As you know, Dr. Ford’s serious allegations were week at the FBI for further investigation, last. Now, your story is public, it is all the more important that we, the Bureau, the time it takes to follow-up,” she wrote in a letter. “…After the FBI his independent work, we hope that we can work together to decide, in a non-partisan way, on the next steps.”
Ford, a California-based professor who reveals her identity over the weekend in a Washington Post report, according to a letter obtained by sen Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the alleged sexual assault. She said that Kavanaugh, while in high school, low note, tried to remove it from your bathing suit and put his hand over her mouth, screaming as she tried.
Kavanaugh in a statement last week, “to deny categorically and unequivocally” to, the allegations, if you for the first time.
“I didn’t do that back in school, or at any time,” Kavanaugh said last week.
But Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, said on NBC’s “Today” that her client tried to believe Kavanaugh to rape her.
“It is clear that this is an attempted rape,” Katz said on Monday. “She believes that if it were not for the heavy poisoning of the Kavanaugh’s, you have been raped.”
Katz also said on Monday that her client was “willing to do what it takes to get your story,” and would testify before the Committee under oath.
Meanwhile, the White house defended both Kavanaugh and Ford, notes that the woman deserves to be heard.
“This woman should not be offended, and they should not be ignored. I think the Senate is in the direction of the tip to a reasonable approach to be that this woman heard, in sworn testimony, that judge Kavanaugh can be heard sworn testimony,” said White House Advisor, Kelly Anne Conway, “Fox & Friends” Monday. “I spoke with the President, I talked with Senator [Lindsey] Graham and others. This woman will be heard.”
Conway said that the Committee would decide “how and in what form,” Ford was able to share her account, suggesting it could be in a public framework, or even over the phone. Conway, though, noted that Ford ‘ s account, while it should be considered, should also be “weighed against” other evidence.
“This needs to be weighed against what we already know, that judge Kavanaugh is a man of good character and integrity,” Conway said, noting he has been through half a dozen rounds to the FBI’s “security check” and was “praised by women in every aspect of his life,” including former classmates, and the mothers of young girls that he coaches in basketball.
Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote before the Committee is on Thursday at this point. The allegations that have thrown the timeline into question, however. Many Democrats have for a delay in the vote, and a handful of Republicans opened the door to this possibility.
But, Conway said, it should not be a delay, noting that even without Ford’s assertions, many democratic senators were planning to vote against him.
“Let us not deceive ourselves-long before this happened, there were Democrats said they would not Kavanaugh in the vote for judges or anyone President Trump nominated for the Supreme court,” said Conway. “We don’t make it very clear that these democratic senators … were interested, judge Kavnaugh significant record, his character and integrity, as testified by many women.”
Conway, though, answered Katz’s statements by telling the Committee members that you want to talk, let Ford to testify.
“You should testify under oath. The Senate Judiciary Committee, sees the headline,” she said.
