Where Did Christine Blasey Ford Go to High School?

She contacted her congressmember and The Washington Post through a tip line. Dianne Feinstein orchestrated the leak and subsequent release of Ford's letter, not merely to sink Kavanaugh and level accusations in a way that would make it hard for the judge to defend himself, but also to try and delay Republican efforts to confirm any nominee until after the midterms.

"Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday", Kavanaugh said in a statement Monday.

Ford said she never discussed the incident with anyone until 2012, during a couple's therapy session with her husband, Russell Ford.

"I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity", Kavanaugh said in a statement provided to reporters from the White House.

U.S. President Donald Trump holds the inaugural meeting of the President's National Council for the American Worker at the White House in Washington, U.S., September 17, 2018.

"This woman should not be insulted and she should not be ignored", Ms Conway said in an interview with Fox News. "This woman will be heard". Mark Judge called Ford "absolutely nuts". But that approach failed to satisfy some senators.

But Grassley stopped short of providing details about whether he would like her to testify before the committee under oath and in public, or some different arrangement.

Now a judge on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, widely viewed as the nation's second most powerful court, Kavanaugh seemed to be on a smooth confirmation track until the new allegation emerged.


Before the allegations against Kavanaugh became public, Blunt touted Kavanaugh's personal background in a speech on the Senate floor earlier this month and criticized Democratic efforts to slow his nomination. Susan Collins, R-Maine, wouldn't say if the vote should be postponed.

Grassley said the standard procedure would be to conduct follow-up telephone calls with Kavanaugh and Ford, and that he meant to work with the senior Democrat on the committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein, to schedule the calls but that Democrats have refused to cooperate.

"I agree with Sen". Flake went as far as to say he was "not comfortable" voting for Kavanaugh for the time being. "There's a lot of information we don't know and the Federal Bureau of Investigation should have the time it needs to investigate this new material". "This isn't how things should be done and is in complete violation of how this committee has worked in the past", Democrats on the committee said in a statement.

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski told CNN late Sunday that the committee should consider delaying the vote. But faced with a growing Me Too movement, they are also sensitive about appearances. "He is buoyed by the immediate outpouring of support from lifelong friends, including 65 women who knew him in high school and signed a letter on Thursday attesting to his character after initial news reports of the allegation".

Donald Trump Jr posted an image on Instagram on Monday with the caption "Judge Kavanaugh sexual assault letter found by Dems". "Senator Feinstein should publicly release the letter she received back in July so that everyone can know what she's known for weeks".

According to the Post, Ford is a professor at Palo Alto University who teaches in a consortium with Stanford University.

Senator Lindsey Graham, a senior Republican committee member, said he "would gladly" hear from Ford if she wanted to appear before the panel, but it would have to be done quickly.

Banks said Ford struggled "mightily" with the decision to alert lawmakers to the alleged incident. After her story began to leak, she changed her mind and made a decision to go public.
