Kavanaugh denies allegation about high school misconduct

Senate Committee Delays Kavanaugh Vote Until 9/20

Senate Committee Delays Kavanaugh Vote Until 9/20

The Senate Judiciary Committee pushed a vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court until next week, and chose to vote on his nomination for September 20 at 1:45 p.m.

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.

"I am calling on Senate Republicans to delay next week's Judiciary Committee vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh", the number two Senate Democrat wrote in a tweet.

The episode has sent tensions between and inside both parties back to the boiling point over a nomination that could reshape the court for decades.

The show of support for Kavanaugh was organized by his former law clerks. Kamala Harris and New Jersey Sen. If approved by the committee and the whole Senate, as expected, Kavanaugh is likely to decidedly tilt the court to the conservatives for years to come.

Feinstein stunned her colleagues earlier this week by disclosing a letter she sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Before details of the allegation surfaced on Friday, Senate Republicans pointed out that an extensive background check was already completed by the White House and reviewed by the committee.

She struggled with them and escaped, the account said.

Feinstein said in a statement Thursday that she "received information from an individual concerning the nomination". Dianne Feinstein. The magazine said the woman has declined to reveal her identity. "Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new "information" about him", White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement.

Hill, who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of workplace sexual harassment during his confirmation hearing back in 1991, said she has seen "firsthand what happens when such a process is weaponized against an accuser and no one should have to endure that again". The allegation was not raised at any time during the judge's confirmation hearings.

Hill said in a statement to Politico, "The reluctance of someone to come forward demonstrates that even in the #MeToo era, it remains incredibly hard to report harassment, abuse or assault by people in power".

Republican Senator Orrin Hatch, senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he did not "intend to allow Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation to be stalled because of an 11th hour accusation that Democrats did not see fit to raise for over a month".
