Trump's Court Pick BREAKS SILENCE on Feinstein's Letter — KAVANAUGH SPEAKS

Anita Hill Calls for an Investigation into the Allegation of Sexual Abuse Against Brett Kavanaugh

From there, she claims she was pushed into a bedroom and on top of a bed, where she said Kavanaugh attacked her, groping her and trying to pull off her clothes and a one-piece bathing suit, all while holding his hand over her mouth so she couldn't scream.

At one point, she said, [Kavanaugh's friend Mike] Judge jumped on top of them, and she tried unsuccessfully to wriggle free.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein had earlier claimed she was in possession of the woman's letter, but refused to name the accuser or provide details.

Doug Jones predicted on Sunday that Brett Kavanaugh's nomination for the Supreme Court would move forward following an anonymous accusation of sexual misconduct from his high school days. Both have come under great pressure from pro-choice campaigners who fear that Kavanaugh would attempt to overturn the Roe v Wade 1973 decision that legalised abortion.

A father of two young girls, Kavanaugh might decide to spare his family what inevitably will be a few weeks of scrutiny and discussion about Ford's charges.

Kavanaugh's nomination by President Donald Trump has divided the Senate, with most Democrats opposing him and most Republicans supporting him.

The White House also weighed in with a statement on Thursday.

Either scenario would mean the Supreme Court would begin its new term on October 1 without a ninth justice.

That would mean the court will start a new term split 4-4 along ideological lines.

Feinstein had been criticized for not publicizing Ford's allegations, which Feinstein had previously learned of through a "third party", a spokesman said last week.

President George Weah Makes Football Comeback
Fans were shocked to see the former World player of the year lead his team onto the pitch, 16 years after his last appearance. Even though he retired 15 years ago and he's quickly approaching 52 of years of age, he played 79 minutes in the 2-1 defeat.

She continued: "The Senate Judiciary Committee should put in place a process that enables anyone with a complaint of this nature to be heard". Who are we going to cross-examine, Senator Feinstein?

Several Democrats already were speaking out Sunday.

The newspaper notes they do not mention Kavanaugh by name but say she was attacked by students "from an elitist boys" school" who went on to become "highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington'. He was echoing Democratic senators' contentions that Kavanaugh was not truthful at times while under oath before the Judiciary Committee. His office did not immediately respond on Sunday to a request for comment.

Kavanaugh has denied the accusations.

Democrats fighting the nomination say that could turn the court away from guaranteed abortion rights, against programs that benefit disadvantaged minorities, and for greater presidential immunity from the law.

"It's a very serious allegation".

Here's what you need to know.

ABC News has reached out to Debra Katz, a lawyer identified by Buzzfeed as counsel to the woman who has come forward with the allegation but received no response.

"It's disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote after Democrats sat on them since July".
