Maine Protesters Want Susan Collins To Take A Stand On Brett Kavanaugh

Ford accuses Kavanaugh of holding her down and groping her during a high school party in the 1980s, and putting his hand over her mouth so she couldn't scream.

"Remarkably, both Ford and Ramirez's allegations involve other students who saw, and encouraged, the assaults", she explained.

The interview follows new accusations from Deborah Ramirez, who claimed that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party while the two were students at Yale.

A protester against Judge Brett Kavanaugh wears a Yale shirt with a button that reads "I Believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, on Capitol Hill in Washington on September 24. But what I know is, I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

The Kavanaugh confirmation fight comes just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Republicans, against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault.

In July, Chua wrote a Wall Street Journal opinion piece titled "Kavanaugh is a Mentor to Women".

Dozens of students, wearing black, staged a sit-in at the law school Monday, while others traveled to Washington, D.C.to protest the nomination on Capitol Hill, lining the halls of the Senate and demonstrating in front of several different offices.

"I think all of us have probably done things we look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit, but that's not what we're talking about".

He said they appear "more interested in a political takedown" than a bipartisan process. "Another girl ... she got the same advice, and [Chua told her] to wear heels". "Today is really about the larger national conversation, and how Yale Law School, as an elite legal institution, is involved and implicated in this conversation". She said that the allegations were of "enormous concern" to her and the school.

"If true, this advice is clearly unacceptable", it said. When asked about that Monday, Conway said that "it's been put on hold for weeks now" because Feinstein waited until late in the process to raise Ford's allegations, despite previously being aware of them. But there is one group in the United States that displays the near-absolute loyalty to insiders that motivates Chua's critique of tribalism - the American aristocracy of which she is a very prominent member. But Yale Law School spokeswoman Janet Conroy told the Yale Daily News the press release was not an endorsement of the nomination. He told the Guardian in a statement last week that he had been told about the review, but not been informed of the exact nature of the allegations being investigated.

"I was further advised that the allegations were not of the kind that would jeopardize my position as a long-tenured member of the faculty", his statement read.

These future lawyers of America have been protesting both on campus and in Washington, D.C.to convince lawmakers to vote against confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, so the school cancelled more than 30 scheduled classes Monday morning in anticipation of widespread absences.

The White House did not respond to the allegations on behalf of Kavanaugh.
