  • Donald Trump said he does not want the FBI to investigate allegations against US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Anita Hill came forward in 1991 to say that then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her. Hill has said in an ABC interview that "Absolutely it's the right move [to conduct an FBI investigation]" because the hearing questions "need to have a frame, and the investigation is the best frame for that." Sen.

Conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh appeared set to sail through Senate confirmation for the vacancy on the nation's top court until a California professor publicly accused him of having sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers nearly four decades ago.

Trump has repeatedly said that he is open to delaying the confirmation process, but has continued to praise Kavanaugh as an "outstanding" person and to accuse Democrats of playing politics with his nomination.

Ford's attorneys say she wants the FBI to investigate her allegation before she testifies. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, also said more witnesses should be allowed to testify, including Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh's at the time who Ford said was in the room when the alleged assault happened. Feinstein said she gave the letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and asked that they investigate the matter.

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

"I think now during this time period where very powerful men are being exposed for their actions from the past, I think the judiciary committee missed an opportunity to straight off kick him off and find someone else", he said.

Trump also said that he has not spoken to Kavanaugh since the allegations surfaced. "She's not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday", Banks said on CNN on Tuesday night.

The 166 passengers were left in the unpressurized cabin of the Boeing 737 for 45 minutes, according to the Guardian . All passengers are safe including me", tweeted a passenger. "There were no paramedics near the plane when it landed".

She said she feared Kavanaugh might inadvertently kill her before she managed to flee.

Ford told the Post that during a pool party in suburban Maryland, Kavanaugh drunkenly pinned her down on a bed and groped her, trying to remove her one-piece bathing suit and other clothing.

The committee announced yesterday it would postpone its planned vote on Thursday on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination, which requires Senate confirmation, and scheduled the high-stakes hearing with the nominee and his accuser to testify. "That the committee plans to hold a hearing this coming Monday is discouraging".

Ford's lawyers responded on Tuesday, saying that she would not testify publicly until a "full investigation by law enforcement officials" had been completed.

Ford alleges that she was attacked by a drunken Kavanaugh at a high school party they both attended in the 80's.

Democrats have called for any vote to be delayed, pending an FBI investigation, testimony, further scrutiny, and debate. "It starts at age 18 and comes forward".
