Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin is calling on his Republican colleagues to delay next week's Judiciary Committee vote on Brett Kavanaugh in the wake of an anonymous allegation that the Supreme Court nominee tried to sexually assault a teenage girl at a party while he was in high school. In a series of tweets Saturday night, the Illinois Democrat said there are “far too many questions” swirling around Kavanaugh. “If the #MeToo movement has taught us anything, it is that we must respect and listen to survivors of sexual assault, regardless of the age of those involved or when the alleged attack took place,” Durbin wrote. According to the New York Times, Kavanaugh’s accuser detailed her story in a letter to her congresswoman, who passed it on to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who then alerted the FBI but did not publicly reveal the contents. Kavanaugh has “categorically and unequivocally” denied the accusation.
