A woman who has accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault has agreed to testify before a Senate panel, her lawyers said on Saturday.
Based on results from national polls published over the past few days, Brett Kavanuagh is drowning. Never before has a Supreme Court nominee been this far underwater. Every poll has shown that he is the most unpopular nominee in history.
A new poll published by USA Today shows Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to be the most unpopular nominee in history. Clearly the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh have not helped his standing in the eyes of the American public.
In the 1980s, when "The Accused" Brett Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted Christine Blasey Ford, his mother was working in a state's attorney's office where the assault took place.
Every day the news about Brett Kavanaugh keeps getting worse. As we learn more about his past we are learning that the guy is basically a disgusting creep. Especially when it comes to how he views women.
Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) said to mark his words. If Democrats win the Senate, they will investigate this allegation against Brett Kavanaugh.

Well, this is awkward for Republicans, who are barrelling ahead with their plan to confirm a possible rapist to the highest court in the land no matter what.
MSNBC is reporting that a former schoolmate of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford recalls the alleged Kavanaugh assault being discussed at their school. She has no first hand knowledge to corroborate the claims, but what this recollection does is shoot to kill the Republican claim that Ford manufactured this assault for political reasons.
Wondering why the President and Republicans keep referring to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as “the accuser” as if she has no name?
Republicans have a history of painting women as “accuser” instead of “victim.” They’ve even tried to make this law. Republican state Rep Bobby Franklin of Georgia wrote a bill in 2011 to change the language from “victim” to the more hostile “accuser” in rape, stalking and domestic violence cases.
"Nothing of substance and nothing legitimate can happen by Monday," Lisa Banks, an attorney for Ford, told CNN.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told Republicans that if they are going to have their women staff question Christine Blasey Ford, they need to step down.
Mark Judge, a man identified as a witness to an alleged sexual assault by U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, said on Tuesday he does not want to speak publicly on the matter.

The Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are being blasted by Senate Democrats for holding a hearing on the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh that will be a sham.
A Big Blue Wave has been building all year in favor of Democrats. As Trump’s approval keeps dropping to historic lows, the chances of a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives keeps rising. Last week several polls showed the blue party with double-digit leads in the generic congressional ballot. Experts were saying even the Senate was in play.
It is being reported that if the votes aren't there to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by the end of the day, Senate Republicans may begin to pressure Trump to withdraw his nomination.
Trump is expected to attack the woman who is accusing his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault as Republicans in the Senate are showing signs of nervousness about the nomination.
The president who has been accused by dozens of women of sexual assault and sexual harassment is refusing to withdraw the nomination of his Supreme Court nominee who is accused of sexual assault.
Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer cited the "serious and credible allegations" that must be thoroughly investigated. "For too long, when woman have made serious allegations of abuse, they have been ignored. That cannot happen in this case."
