McConnell: Kavanaugh Will Be on Supreme Court in 'Very Near Future'

Trump Defends Supreme Court Nominee as Accuser Faces Deadline

Later on Wednesday, Grassley wrote to the senior Democrat on the committee, Dianne Feinstein, requesting she immediately provide an unredacted copy of the letter Ford sent her in July about the assault allegation, saying he must review it before Monday's hearing.

The confirmation fight has unfolded ahead of November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are seeking to take control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans. Before the assault allegation, supporting Kavanaugh had offered them a chance to side with Trump, who remains popular in numerous red states, while showing independence from their own party.

"That's why the White House and Republicans nationally are behind this nomination, at least want to see both sides tell their story next week", Continetti said.

"TAKE THE VOTE!" Trump tweeted, blaming "radical left wing politicians" for the controversy.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted in reply to Trump that sexual assault and domestic violence are two "of the most under-reported crimes in society, this is a fact & in the past the law enforcement community has not done a good job of creating safe spaces for victims".

Ford is willing to tell her story to the Judiciary Committee, whose senators will vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation - but only if agreement can be reached on what her attorney called "terms that are fair and which ensure her safety".

"1000s & 1000s of strong women have kept being assaulted to themselves for a variety of understandable reasons", Schumer tweeted.

If Senate Republicans push through the nomination, those surveyed predict significant political repercussions.

Trump, steering clear of criticizing Ford on the advice of aides, predicted Kavanaugh will ultimately be confirmed.

However, Ms Katz suggested there appeared to be room for negotiation when she sent a letter to the committee after the phone call, saying: "The only issue I said was a deal breaker was that Dr Ford can not appear at a hearing on Monday".

Specifically, Collins told a ME radio station that she believes in the Senate's responsibility to vet nominees for high offices like the Supreme Court position for which Kavanaugh has been nominated. "So I thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate and wrong". They've delayed it a week already'.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in for his confirmation hearings, September 4, 2018, Washington, D.C.

The FBI investigated a sexual harassment claim against a Supreme Court nominee in 1991 at the behest of the White House, finishing that inquiry in three days. "We know this is going to happen again, because it's happening everywhere", he says.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell predicted Friday morning, just an hour after Trump tweeted his attack on Ford, that the Kavanaugh confirmation would plow ahead.

"As you are aware, she has been receiving death threats, which have been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family have been forced out of their home".

Democratic Senator Doug Jones said Mark Judge, Kavanaugh's high school friend, should be subpoenaed if he refuses to testify. The committee's 11 Republicans - all men - have been seeking an outside female attorney to interrogate Ford, mindful of the election-season impression that could be left by men trying to pick apart a woman's assertion of a sexual attack. It wasn't until the media outed her that she made a decision to come forward.

At a press conference Tuesday, Trump said Kavanaugh was "not a man that deserves this", and that "I feel terribly for him, for his wife, who is an incredibly, lovely woman, attractive young daughters".
