Anita Hill Speaks Out On Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh

Doug Jones predicted on Sunday that Brett Kavanaugh's nomination for the Supreme Court would move forward following an anonymous accusation of sexual misconduct from his high school days.

Blasey spoke to The Washington Post in an exclusive report about the event in question: more specifically, a summer evening in the 1980s in which Kavanaugh was "stumbling drunk" and assaulted her in a bedroom at a party.

In a room with the woman, Kavanaugh and another male teen turned up the music and placed their hands over her mouth so that no one could hear, and Kavanaugh "attempted to force himself on her", The New Yorker reported, citing the woman's account.

"I think it derailed me substantially for four or five years", Ford told the Post. "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing". The woman making the allegation attended a nearby school.

Judge told the New York Times that he "never saw anything like what was described" and said it didn't match Kavanaugh's character.

Kavanaugh has denied any wrongdoing.

It could create problems for workers or executives if border officials ask them straightforward questions about their occupations. Enenajor said pot users and people connected to the industry are considered "inadmissible aliens" under US law.

Gas company linked to explosions in Massachusetts, West Virginia, Ohio
One person remained in critical condition and was transported to a Boston trauma center, officials said during a press conference. Investigators suspected the fires were caused by "over-pressurisation of a gas main" belonging to Columbia Gas lines.

"Why suffer through the annihilation if it's not going to matter?" she said in the latest interview. Dianne Feinstein received a letter, which detailed the incident.

Brett Kavanaugh will more than likely be our next Supreme Court Justice, despite obvious proof that he is unqualified and will work to dismantle civil liberties. The notes do not mention Kavanaugh's name but say she reported that she was attacked by students "from an elitist boys' school" who went on to become "highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington".

The Senate judiciary committee is due to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination on Thursday, paving the way for a full Senate vote later in the month which would require a simple majority to secure his place on the supreme court bench.

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

Feinstein passed the letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation - with Ford's name redacted. Sources told NPR that the California senator felt pressure to put something out publicly after a report indicated she had not briefed fellow members of the panel on a document. She didn't say anything in the confirmation hearings. A spokesperson added, "we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh's background file, as per the standard process". Equally awful was the recent op-ed from a White House insider underscoring President Donald Trump's incompetence.

The two most closely-watched GOP senators are Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), moderates who favor abortion rights and have broken ranks with their party in the past, including during the failed Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act a year ago. She told the Post: "Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation".
