Christine Blasey Ford: Kavanaugh accuser 'faces death threats'

Christine Blasey Ford: Kavanaugh accuser 'faces death threats'

Citing "a person close to" Ford who also wishes to remain anonymous, they report that the harassment has been so severe she has had to move herself and her children out of their home, and is arranging for "private security".

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", she said. He did not state whether he found the accusation against Kavanaugh to be credible.

Calling for the FBI "to reopen and complete the background investigation", Feinstein drew comparisons to the hearings that were held after Hill's allegations against Thomas surfaced in 1991. She said she managed to escape once Kavanaugh's friend, identified as Mark Judge, jumped on top of them. "More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes".

"These are the voices we need to hear in the Senate as we do all we can to strengthen health care for women and families, prevent extreme judicial nominees who want to overturn Roe v. Wade and turn back the clock on women's health and rights, and fight back against Trump-Pence anti-woman agenda", her fundraising email says.

Meanwhile, key members the Trump administration, including the president himself, continue to defend Kavanaugh.

Prof Ford, a psychology lecturer in California, has accused Judge Kavanaugh of drunkenly trying to remove her clothing in 1982 when they were both teenagers in a Washington DC suburb.

Yet a few Republicans have suggested there may have to be a delay, at least in the Judiciary vote on the nominee - which was scheduled for this Thursday - in order to hear from Ford.

"I support Mrs. Ford's decision to share her story, and now that she has, it is in the hands of the FBI to conduct an investigation".

Roseanne Barr reveals how her character dies on The Conners
Barr, 65, admitted she has accepted her fate and the fact that the show is moving on without her. "There's no fight left". Roseanne Barr has revealed how her character will get killed in the upcoming spinoff of Roseanne - an opioid overdose.

"We can not brush aside these extraordinarily serious allegations in an unseemly rush to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to a lifetime seat", Leahy said in a separate statement issued later Monday morning.

"I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone", Kavanaugh said on Monday.

Kavanaugh calls the allegation "completely false".

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said on radio's "Hugh Hewitt Show" said that he'd not yet received confirmation from Ford that she would appear at the hearing, despite several attempts to reach her camp.

"It bothers me that the Democrats did not ask him about this previously".

Finally, refer to Christine Blasey Ford by her name.

Sen. Jeff Flake, another Republican on the committee, went further, saying he would not vote to approve Kavanaugh without first hearing from Ford. "A lot of people in the Senate weren't going to vote for him anyway".
