Lawyer for Kavanaugh’s accuser says Senate panel rushing to hearing

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A lawyer for a girl who has accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault on Wednesday criticized the Senate Judiciary Committee for scheduling a hearing on the matter for Monday, the Washington Post reported.

“The rush to a hearing is unnecessary, and contrary to the Committee discovering the truth,” the Post quoted Lisa Banks, a lawyer for Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford, as saying.

The assertion made no point out of whether or not Ford would testify, the Post stated.
