Secret letter may accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

Kamala Harris pushes deceptively edited video to smear Brett Kavanaugh. But here’s the truth

The California Democrat said in a statement that she "received information from an individual concerning the nomination".

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee brushed aside a flurry of Democratic attempts to delay the consideration of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday, sticking with a schedule that could see him confirmed by October 1.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the third day of his confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill Sept. 6.

The information came in a letter, which was first sent to the office of California Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo, and included the allegation of sexual misconduct, the paper reported.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, started the meeting by announcing Kavanaugh's nomination would be held for a week. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota - who previously voted for Judge Neil Gorsuch, Trump's first nominee to the Supreme Court.

Questions about the letter boiled over on Wednesday after The Intercept published a report saying Feinstein had refused to share the content of the letter with other members on the committee.

At least four Democrats on the committee have already said they will vote against his confirmation. She said senators "should be able to see this record" and wondered, "What in Judge Kavanaugh's records are Republicans hiding?" But on Thursday, the White House decried news of the letter as an attempt to delay the confirmation.

Senate Republicans accused Booker of grandstanding as a potential 2020 White House candidate.

The Republican-led committee agreed to vote on the nomination on September 20, with a final Senate confirmation vote likely by the end of the month.

The person who reportedly is the subject of the letter is said to be represented by Debra Katz, according to The Intercept.

The questions, mostly from Democrats, deal with abortion, executive power and personal finances - including how much he spends on tickets to see Major League Baseball's Washington Nationals.

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement, "Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen".

Interested in Supreme Court?

Numerous protesters had interrupted the hearings and Kavanaugh said he didn't know who Guttenberg was as he approached him.

Kavanaugh's security detail ushered him out in a "split second", according to the judge's response to a written question from Grassley. Most likely to influence the moderate Democrats' vote on Kavanaugh is the possible fate of the Affordable Care Act, particularly as a lawsuit challenging its protections for pre-existing conditions winds its way through the courts.
