'Very hard to imagine' anything happened between Kavanaugh and accuser

Judge Brett Kavanaugh

The FBI has said it is not investigating the matter, a decision backed by Republicans.

Asked if he would ask the FBI to open a deeper investigation, Trump said he was content to "let the senators do it".

Hume said that the request for an Federal Bureau of Investigation is part of delay tactics. Chuck Grassley, the committee's Republican chairman, on Wednesday sent a letter to Ford's lawyers giving her until 10 a.m. (1400 GMT) on Friday to submit prepared testimony if she meant to show up on Monday.

For the sake of a fake timeline, Republicans are railroading Dr. Ford into a sham hearing meant to smear her character and dismiss her allegations.

Third, as long as Ford's counsel want to talk about regular, independent investigations, we should note that there is not a police organization in America that would entertain her allegation, in light of the lapse of time and the long-ago exhaustion of the statute of limitations.

Ford, now a professor in California, has also faced death threats since going public with her story. Her email has been hacked, and she has been impersonated online. The hearing was scheduled for six short days from today and would include interrogation by Senators who appear to have made up their minds that she is "mistaken" and "mixed up". While no sexual assault survivor should be subjected to such an ordeal, Dr. Ford wants to cooperate with the Committee and with law enforcement officials. "The rush to a hearing is unnecessary". The one being investigated uses vulgar language and suggests violence.

All of this aside, Sen.

In the video, Ronaldo is seen protesting against the decision. "He was sad after the match, very sad, and we were all sad for him".

"There is an environment where people see nothing, hear nothing, and say nothing", Hirono said this week about the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct. Kavanaugh has completely denied the allegations.

"It's very unfair, I think, to - as you know, Justice Kavanaugh has been treated very, very tough, and his family", the president said. "Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday". Kirsten Gillibrand defended Ford and said the Judiciary panel is being unfair to her. President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have rejected Ford's request for an FBI investigation of her accusation, which she says should take place before she testifies. Kavanaugh has said that he is also willing to testify again in front of the committee.

Kavanaugh has been prepping all week for the possibility of a public hearing and denies Ford's claim that he "groped" her and "put his hand over her mouth" at a high school party in the early 1980s.

Ford told The Washington Post that she had told no one about the incident until she attended therapy sessions with her husband in 2010, thirty years later.

Judge's lawyer said in a letter to the committee on Tuesday that Judge did not recall the incident and did not wish to testify.

Ford has said she wants the FBI to investigate her claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980s.
