Questions Abound Over Delay Of Sexual Misconduct Accusation Against Judge Kavanaugh

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination is likely to be held up a little longer, as President Donald Trump said he is willing to accept "a little delay," to go through the process of hearing everyone out.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, recently made the committee aware of a letter she received months ago from Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges Kavanaugh forced himself on her sexually at a high school party in the 1980s.

Kavanaugh denies her was at the party and believes Ford is mistaking him for someone else.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell questioned why Feinstein withheld this allegation until the last moment before the vote on Kavanaugh's nomination:

President Trump is defending Kavanaugh, calling him one of the finest people he has known. Trump also questioned why the allegation was hidden away until now if it was considered an honest charge:
Democrats are under intense pressure from radicals on the far left to derail the Kavanaugh nomination. He is a conservative and would replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, considered more of a moderate, thereby shifting the high court to the political right.
