Kavanaugh sex assault allegations 'totally political:' Trump

Trump leads aggressive all-out GOP drive to save Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh, left, looks at his wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh as they answer questions during a FOX News interview, Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, in Washington, about allegations of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee.

His comments, made as he entered United Nations headquarters in NY, were his first since a report Sunday night on a second allegation of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh. The New Yorker interviewed multiple people who Ramirez said were at the party, but none of them said they could recall such an incident.

Although Dr Ford does not remember the time, date or location of the party she claims she was assaulted at, Mr Kavanaugh says he was not at the party she had described.

The New Yorker magazine reported Sunday night that Senate Democrats were investigating a second woman's accusation of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh dating to the 1983-84 academic year, Kavanaugh's first at Yale University.

In his letter, Kavanaugh said that those who are alleged to have witnessed the two events say either that they have no recollection, or that they simply did not happen.

Kavanaugh said he wasn't questioning "that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place, but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

Republicans have already rescheduled the hearing twice, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) on Monday hinted that his patience might be at an end, calling the accusations against Kavanaugh a "shameful smear campaign" and vowing to hold a vote on his nomination. Kavanaugh may drop out himself, while his nomination could also be pulled by the White House or not accepted by the nomination committee.

Michael Avenatti, best known as the attorney for former adult film actress Stormy Daniels, announced Sunday that he is representing a third woman "with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh".

US President Donald Trump has made a decision to stand behind his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

While the result felt harsh on the away side, Everton have now conceded two goals in each of their three away games this term. Everton still need a finisher at the end of the chances, but with Richarlison they at least know that they'll create some.

The Supreme Court nominee made it clear - as has the White House - that they're not backing down.

Ford, now a California-based university professor, says Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to undress her when they were at a party in their school years.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway held a conference call with supporters Monday morning during which, according to a participant who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the private call, she said there was a "vast left-wing conspiracy" to prevent Kavanaugh from winning confirmation.

Christine Blasey Ford has accused Judge Kavanaugh of assaulting her at a party when they were teenagers. Delaying Kavanaugh's confirmation could give time for doubts about him to take root or for any fresh accusations to emerge. "A quiet, serious, thorough background check (of Judge Kavanaugh) by the Federal Bureau of Investigation". In the letter, Ford said she faced death threats and was relying on her lawyers and Grassley to "agree to conditions that will allow me to testify in a fair setting".

Ford's lawyers said "various senators have been dismissive of her account and should have to shoulder their responsibility to ask her questions".

"No innuendo has been too low, no insinuation too dirty", Senator Hatch said, adding the committee should proceed with its hearing on Thursday and "then we should vote". If true, that would be an absurd defense: Ford has accused Kavanaugh of attempted rape, and Ramirez has accused him of exposing himself to her and thrusting his penis in her face. Christine Blasey Ford identified herself last Sunday as the woman who sent a confidential letter in late July to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Sen.

The New Yorker reports the offices of at least four Democratic senators have received information about the allegation, and at least two have begun investigating the incident.

"I know I'm telling the truth, I know my lifelong record, and I'm not going to let false accusations drive me out of this process", an emotional Judge Kavanaugh said on Fox, his wife Ashley seated at his side.
