Anita Hill responds to allegation against Kavanaugh


Kavanaugh denies it. The only other person in the room denies it. Senator Feinstein's had the letter since July, for three months. The letter noted that the signatories included women from "a broad range of political views".

The woman has been identified by Politico as a Stanford professor, but her name has not been revealed publicly.

"Sexual assault, in high school, from an anonymous source?" Feinstein declined to comment beyond the statement.

Feinstein's statement that she had "referred the matter to federal investigative authorities" jolted Capitol Hill and threatened to disrupt what had been a steady path toward confirmation for Kavanaugh by Republicans eager to see the conservative judge on the court.

The father was also home, and he was taken to the New Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment. The National Hurricane Center said there was more than 10 feet (3 meters) of inundation in New Bern.

For several days, Feinstein declined requests for the woman's letter from other Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, the New Yorker reported.

"We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983".

"Senator Feinstein was given information about Judge Kavanaugh through a third party. For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect", the women said in the letter sent Friday to Senate Judiciary leaders.

"Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators-including with Senator Feinstein-sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session". "If they were serious about it, they should've told us about it". "Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new "information" about him", Kupec said. The woman has not gone public but Sen.

He said parts of the state had seen storm surges - the bulge of seawater pushed ashore by the hurricane - as high as 10 feet. More than 60 people had to be pulled from a collapsing cinderblock motel at the height of the storm.

Before details of the allegation surfaced on Friday, Senate Republicans pointed out that an extensive background check was already completed by the White House and reviewed by the committee.

The allegation came just one week before the Senate Judiciary Committee is to vote on his nomination.

Hill said in a statement to Politico, "The reluctance of someone to come forward demonstrates that even in the #MeToo era, it remains incredibly hard to report harassment, abuse or assault by people in power". The aide also said Grassley only learned about the allegation from news sources this week and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation sent the Senate the updated report on Thursday.

If Collins or Murkowski should vote for Kavanaugh, he is likely to be confirmed.
