Kavanaugh Nomination In Peril Following New Accusations

Опубликовано 24 сентября 2018, 12:58
CNN reports that Democrats are demanding an immediate halt to Brett Kavanaugh's nomination process after his increasingly troubled hopes of reaching the Supreme Court were hit by a new allegation of sexual misconduct as a young man.
Kavanaugh quickly denied the new accusation by a female former fellow student about an alleged incident when he was at Yale University in the early 1980s. He branded the story reported by The New Yorker as part of a smear campaign by Democrats. It's a charge echoed by the White House.
The fresh trouble for Kavanaugh emerged hours after arrangements were finally locked in for a Senate hearing on Thursday. His first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will allege that he sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in high school.
The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein, responded to the new allegation by calling on the Republican committee chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley, to order an "immediate postponement" of any further action on Kavanaugh's nomination.
