Sen. McCaskill says will vote against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh

On Tuesday, Blasey Ford's lawyers sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee saying that while she wants to cooperate with the panel, "an FBI investigation of the incident should be the first step in addressing her allegations".

Ford's lawyers say she has received death threats and other danger since going public with her story.

"There's an agreement between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Senate Judiciary Committee, and whenever the Chair, speaking for the majority, wants a nominee investigated or re investigated, the FBI will do it", he said.

"I really want to see her", Trump said.

Trump, star of that infamous "grab 'em by the p**sy" Access Hollywood tape, assured reporters today he finds it "very hard for me to imagine that anything happened" between Kavanaugh and Ford, as she has claimed. That this courageous woman is receiving death threats and has been forced to flee with her family is appalling and heartbreaking.

The committee announced on Monday it would postpone its planned vote on Thursday on Kavanaugh's nomination, which requires Senate confirmation, and scheduled the high-stakes hearing on Monday with the nominee and his accuser to testify. Trump enemies like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker have done everything they could to signal to Ford and her liberal friends that if she shows up on Monday and seems honest, there's a good chance they'll vote to blow Kavanaugh up.

No matter the outcome, Democrats should be held responsible for circumventing the process that protects people like Ford, Hatch said.

"She has sided with Chuck Schumer every single time - for liberals and against Missouri", he added.

Trump Jr. described his artwork on Instagram with the caption: 'Judge Kavanaugh's sexual assault letter found by Dems'.

They will also miss their superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 120 goals for the Spanish club in the tournament. Cristiano Ronaldo was supposed to be the missing piece in Juventus' bid to win the Champions League .


But he also dismissed the idea that the FBI should investigate the incident, something Blasey Ford had called for before she testifies. "Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford's letter".

I have seen a lot of stupidity, but I don't think I have ever seen anything as dumb as the current controversy arising from Democratic Party activist Christine Ford's 36-year-old, teenage allegation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh, 53, seemed to be cruising toward that vote before the sexual misconduct allegation became public.

She alleged Mr Kavanaugh was "stumbling drunk" at the time.

If Ms. Ford doesn't show on Monday, she will lose any credibility she might have and the committee and full Senate should follow Sen.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted that it was "imperative" to move forward on the Kavanaugh vote.

Fellow Republican Susan Collins of ME said she hoped Prof Ford would "reconsider and testify" on Monday.

Hill's allegations against Thomas drew scorn and attack from many Republican senators - some of whom, like Sen.

On Wednesday, Senator Jeff Flake - who had previously said he would not decide his vote until hearing both testimonies - also called on Prof Ford to accept the Senate's invitation.
