McConnell tamps down any talk of Kavanaugh withdrawal

The Hill

05:00 PM EDT

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is privately warning GOP colleagues that there will be political fallout for the party if they fail to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, quashing any talking within his conference about pressuring Kavanaugh to drop out.

McConnell gathered Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in his Capital Hill office Tuesday to buck up their resolve to get the nominee confirmed before the election, according to lawmakers who attended.

"McConnell's message was, 'Get it Done!' He said there are a few issues that voters care about and the Supreme Court is one of them," said one Republican senator who requested anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

The lawmaker said this stern message from McConnell has tamped down any talk of pressing Kavanaugh to withdraw his name though "some of us may be thinking it."

Trump says Kavanaugh may be delayed

The Hill

03:14 PM EDT

President Trump on Monday opened the door to delaying Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation to look into sexual misconduct allegations, but predicted the process will "work out very well."

If it takes a little delay it'll take a little delay," Trump told reporters at the White House.
"I'm sure it will work out very well."

When asked if Kavanaugh should withdraw, Trump said it was a "ridiculous question" but added that he has not spoken with the federal judge about the accusations.

Trump was making his first public remarks since a woman came forward to accuse Kavanaugh of assaulting her when they were both in high school, an accusation that has raised doubts about the prospects for Kavanaugh's confirmation.

But the president left no doubt that he will stand by his nominee to the high court, calling Kavanaugh "one of the finest people that anybody has known" and claiming the judge "never even had a little blemish on his record."


Dem lawmaker from Kavanaugh accuser's district: "I'm proud of my constituent"

Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif) praised her constituent for speaking publicly about her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford spoke to the Washington Post on Sunday and detailed her allegations against Kavanaugh for the first time publicly.

The now 51-year-old professor at Palo Alto University in California described an incident between her and Kavanaugh when the pair were in high school.

She alleges that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed one summer in the 1980s and forced himself on her.

Eshoo, who represents Palo Alto, praised Ford's decision to come forward on Sunday -- months after the congresswoman allegedly received a letter detailing Ford's claims.

"I'm proud of my constituent for the courage she has displayed to come forward to tell her full story to the American people," Eshoo said in a statement.
"In weighing her privacy and the consequences to herself and her family, she has demonstrated her willingness to risk these factors to present the truth.

"I am grateful to her for weighing these equities and choosing to speak out on one of the most consequential decisions in our country, an appointment to the highest Court in the land," she continued.

Allegations throw Kavanaugh confirmation into turmoil

The Hill
September 16, 2018
07:01 PM EDT

Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination was plunged into chaos after a woman accusing him of sexual assault spoke publicly for the first time about the allegation on Sunday.

The fallout from the decades-old allegation is putting a spotlight on Senate Republicans who must decide if they want to rush forward with Kavanaugh's nomination with questions lingering over the Senate's debate and vote.

Republicans have been confident for months that Kavanaugh would be confirmed by October, when the court starts it's next term.
But they are under intense pressure to delay a vote after Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, told the Washington Post that in high school in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and forced himself on her.

Ford told the post that Kavanaugh "groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull of her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore under it."

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
