Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook) called for a delay of this week's scheduled confirmation vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, following a decades-old sexual assault allegation. "I am still concerned about how this process is being rushed," Jones said. Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanagh of sexually assaulting her while the two were in high school in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has strongly denied any wrongdoing, and said he would be willing to speak to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which had planned to vote Thursday. Ford's attorney said she also would be willing to speak with the panel. President Trump blasted Democrats, saying they knew of Ford's allegations back in July, but said nothing until just days before the vote.
