Anita Hill Speaks Out On Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh

Senate Committee Delays Kavanaugh Vote Until 9/20

Maggie Hassan is among the growing list of senators who have said that they will not support the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to U.S. Supreme Court.

As very bad as the allegation about Kavanaugh is (and one is justified in questioning its veracity under the circumstances), the use of an anonymous document to undermine him is terrible.

Kavanaugh "categorically and unequivocally" denied the allegation, which came just before his confirmation to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy and grant conservatives a majority on the court.

Watching Kavanaugh move toward a likely confirmation, she chose to end her effort to come forward, according to the New Yorker. Kamala Harris and New Jersey Sen.

The accusations against Kavanaugh are being used by liberals to undercut the White House effort to present him as a family man and advocate of women and girls, in part to blunt Democratic accusations that he would vote to overturn the right to an abortion. "That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day".

Ronan Farrow, who co-authored The New Yorker article, told CNN that some members of the Senate Judiciary Committee "feel that there was a missed opportunity to fully interrogate this allegation".

Collins held an hourlong phone call with Kavanaugh on Friday, her spokeswoman confirmed.

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". He denied those allegations and was confirmed. The letter was also shared with Feinstein in July.

"In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect", the letter said.

Under pressure from other Democratic senators, who had been fighting a pitched battle against Judge Kavanaugh for weeks - largely over access to documents from his years in the George W. Bush White House - Ms. Feinstein called a meeting late Wednesday to share with the lawmakers the letter's contents but not the letter itself.

"All I know is what I read in some two or three sentences in some report that came out overnight, and since I don't know anything more about it then what I read, that's all I can say at this point", Grassley said.

"Senator Schumer promised to 'oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have, ' and it appears he is delivering with this 11th-hour attempt to delay his confirmation", Kupec said.
