Senators will probe Kavanaugh, accuser in public hearing

Explosive allegations of sexual assault brought against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will be aired in an extraordinary public hearing next Monday.. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley confirming Kavanaugh and his accuser - Christine Blasey Ford - will testify before the committee (quote) "to provide ample transparency…. " The move coming after President Trump seemed to join those pushing for Kavanaugh's confirmation to be postponed.. TRUMP SOT: "If it takes a little delay to get Kavanaugh confirmed, it takes a little delay" Ford alleges that in the early 1980s a drunken Kavanaugh held her down, covered her mouth and tried to remove her clothing at a house party when they were high school students more than 30 years ago… Ford's lawyer Deborah Katz saying the incident traumatized her for years. LAWYER SOT Reuters has not been able to independently verify her story. Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine joined Democrats who said lawmakers first needed to closely examine the charges leveled by Ford. COLLINS SOT "We need to hear from them both…/ "Obviously, if Judge Kavanaugh has lied about what happened, that would be disqualifying," Word of the new hearing coming after a day of high drama in Washington.. Kavanaugh issuing a new denial of the charges ..and huddling with officials at the White House as Senate Republicans tried to keep his nomination on track. TRUMP SOT - Trump on nomination still being on track… Grassley's decision delays a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination the committee had planned for this Thursday.. Monday's planned hearing sets up a scenario not seen since Anita Hill's explosive testimony in 1991, when she accused then-nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment in the workplace. Thomas was ultimately confirmed by the Senate.

Mystery letter roils Kavanaugh's high court bid

Mystery letter roils Kavanaugh's high court bid

Top Senate Democrat Dianne Feinstein on Thursday said she had referred a letter about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to federal investigators.. Feinstein said the person who wrote the letter asked that it remain confidential.. but the New York Times - citing two unnamed officials - reported the incident involved possible sexual misconduct between Kavanaugh and a woman when they were both in high school. The White House swiftly dismissed the report, expressing skepticism of the timing of its release…and saying Kavanaugh has already been thoroughly vetted. The Times said the letter was first sent to the office of Congresswoman Anna Eshoo of California.. and was referred to Feinstein over the summer.. The move by Feinstein comes after Democrats try to thwart Kavanaugh's nomination over concerns Kavanaugh might help overturn abortion rights. On Thursday, Democratic senators failed again to secure the release of Kavanaugh-related documents... The Republican-led committee agreed to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination on September 20, with a FINAL confirmation vote likely by the end of the month.

Democratic Sen. Feinstein urges FBI probe of Kavanaugh allegations

The confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be put on hold until the FBI can probe allegations of sexual misconduct against him. That's according to Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein The call from the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee coming after The Washington Post on Sunday named Kavanaugh's accuser. 51-year-old professor Christine Ford accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed, groping her and trying to remover her clothes at a party in the 1980s when both were in high school. Ford told the post she initially wanted to remain anonymous, but changed her mind and decided to go public. Last week, Kavanaugh said he "categorically and unequivocally" denies the allegations. Reuters has not independently confirmed Ford's claims, and the White House on Sunday did not immediately reply to a request for comment. Many Republicans dismissed the allegations as a political ploy.

Tiger snake vs brown snake

Tiger snake vs brown snake

NANNEELLA’S Liz Williams had only seen one snake this summer but said that all went out the window on Friday night. When she witnessed a fight to the death between an Eastern Brown snake and a Tiger snake – in her backyard. Liz said not only did the snakes fight, once the Brown had killed the Tiger it proceeded to eat it. “It was amazing, I didn’t even know they would fight like that, let alone eat one another,” Liz said. “My niece posted some video of the event and I learnt there was a real contrast in people’s reactions – from fascination to fear,” she said. “Half the people who saw our post said they would not be visiting us again.” Liz said there was plenty of water – and frogs – on their property which appeal to the snakes but also means they leave people alone. “I would not usually call a snake catcher for a snake sighting but Merrigum’s Craig Bergman came and when he arrived said he hadn’t seen that before in 20 years in his line of business. “I had assumed the Tiger should have won but Craig told me the Brown will always come out on top. “As the brownie hadn’t finished his meal, Craig very carefully and slowly lifted them into his bag.” Craig rang later to report with only a few centimetres to go the Brown snake must have decided the meal was too big and regurgitated it. He said the Eastern Brown was about 125cm and the Tiger about 100cm.
