Kavanaugh accuser says he doesn't belong on Supreme Court

Kavanaugh accuser says he doesn't belong on Supreme Court

Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the woman who accuses him of sexually assaulting her at a teenage party 36 years ago are to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee in a hearing which has electrified the United States.

"She and a group of four (including Kavanaugh met in a Washington D.C. bar)".

"I was pushed into a bedroom and was locked in the room and rush onto a bed", she wrote.

"He began running his hands over my body and grinding into me".

She criticised Republicans who have rejected Democratic demands to slow Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation process and let the FBI investigate all the allegations, saying: "What I don't understand is the rush to judgment". She says he held her down, covered her mouth, and tried to strip off her clothing.

"I am here today not because I want to be", Ford said.

Elsewhere, a coalition of conservative women's groups is planning an "I stand with Brett" rally near the Russell Senate Office Building.

She alleged Kavanaugh and Judge were "drunkenly laughing during the attack", which she maintained "has drastically altered" her life. I denied the allegation immediately, unequivocally, and categorically.

Calling the empowerment of women alleging abuse "very dangerous" for the country, President Donald Trump weighed in Wednesday on the mounting accusations against his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. Although she did not explicitly mention Kavanaugh or Judge were offenders, she said they were present at the time of the incident. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member on the committee, asked how she made a decision to come forward.

Feinstein said says the Federal Bureau of Investigation should have investigated Ford's allegations. Ford and Kavanaugh are testifying before the committee on Thursday. He responded that "we're dealing with an anonymous letter about an anonymous person and an anonymous friend". Trump maintains the accusations against Kavanaugh are baseless.

An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, conducted Saturday through Monday, found that 43% of respondents said they oppose his nomination and 38% said they support it. He has denied all the allegations. However, the remarks he delivered during Thursday's hearing differed from those he had submitted.

"It's possible I'll hear that and I'll say, 'Hey, I'll change my mind, '" Trump said.
