Baker: ‘Sickening’ Kavanaugh Allegations Should Be Investigated Before Senate Vote

Sen. Jeff Merkley Sues To Prevent Final Vote On Brett Kavanaugh

Protesters with Women's March and others gather in front of the Supreme Court on Capitol Hill in Washington, Sept. 24, 2018.

Donald Trump's nominee for the United States supreme court is facing two new allegations of sexual misconduct, bringing the number of woman accusing him of inappropriate behaviour to five and threatening to completely derail his nomination process.

Ford testifies about her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during a 10 a.m. Thursday hearing.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

"She's ready, " Samantha Guerry said on "Good Morning America" Thursday of high school classmate Christine Blasey Ford, who's scheduled to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Kavanaughhas repeatedly denied the accusation and Ford has stood by her allegations.

Blasey Ford's accusations have thrust her into an intense national spotlight, as Trump seeks to push through his nominee on party lines and Democrats demand a suspension of the proceedings to allow the FBI to conduct a thorough investigation.




Baker's Democratic opponent for governor, Jay Gonzalez, said in a statement Thursday that he believes Ford and other women who have spoken out against Kavanaugh.

She gave details of how information surrounding the incident, including her name and that of Kavanaugh, became public, saying that she "struggled with a bad choice" when trying to decide whether to release her account of events when the press reported Kavanaugh's confirmation was virtually certain.

An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, conducted Saturday through Monday, found that 43% of respondents said they oppose his nomination and 38% said they support it.

"We're dealing with an anonymous letter about an anonymous person and an anonymous friend", he said. He also took aim at Senate Democrats, calling the entire ordeal "a big, fat con job". "I can't tell you".

"If he's going to have that seat legitimately, all of these things should be investigated because from what I experienced firsthand, I don't believe he belongs on the Supreme Court", Swetnick says in an interview for the Showtime series, "The Circus". "I have to watch tomorrow".

Flake's neutrality on the issue is important as he's a key vote in Kavanaugh's nomination process as one of the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
