Democrats know of second Kavanaugh claim, New Yorker reports

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee

Hours later, however, The New Yorker magazine reported online that Senate Democrats were investigating another woman's accusation of sexual misconduct by Mr Kavanaugh, this time dating to the 1983-84 academic year, Mr Kavanaugh's first at Yale University. Also, a new poll finds 50% of respondents, a record high, oppose Kavanaugh's nomination.

After days of relative restraint, Trump lashed at Ford on Friday, questioning the credibility of her allegations, and in doing so may already have hurt his nominee's chances with a senator from his own party.

Kavanaugh denies all the allegations against him.

Kavanaugh's confirmation proceedings have been thrown into turmoil by the accusation of California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who says he sexually assaulted her while they were both teenagers.

"This came to the attention of people on the hill independently and it's really cornered her into an awkward position", Farrow told "Good Morning America" on Monday. Brett Kavanaugh was unfit to serve before these latest allegations, now there can be no question that he must not serve on the highest court in the land.

Senate Democrats sent a letter to President Donald Trump on Sunday asking that he direct the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into Ford's allegations, the Post reports.

Schumer and Feinstein write that Trump's comments this past week about getting to the bottom of the charges is "is merely lip service unless you are willing to direct the FBI to investigate".

After much back and forth, a tentative agreement was reached for a Thursday hearing for Ford to discuss the alleged assault with the Judiciary Committee.

The lawyer acknowledged to CNN that Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford's.

UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Ronaldo
Nevertheless, referee Felix Brych took the decision to raise the red card and an emotional Ronaldo left the pitch disconsolate. In Juventus' game against Valencia , Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off in the 29th minute.

Davis wrote that they would hold the hearing in the Judiciary panel's regular hearing room, which is small. We do not know who leaked this letter to the press, notwithstanding Dr. Ford's request for confidentiality.

Grassley's counsel said in a note to Ford's lawyers that "the Chairman asked me to relay again that he will do everything in his power to provide a safe, comfortable and dignified forum for Dr. Ford to testify".

Keyser's denial mimics that of three other witnesses, including Kavanaugh himself, who've all said they have no memory of the party or the incident.

"Of course, we will attempt to evaluate these new claims", Foy said in a statement, adding that the committee's Republican staff only learned of Ramirez's allegation from the New Yorker article on Sunday evening. Republicans narrowly control the Senate.

In the face of two new allegations of sexual assault by his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump made it clear he stood by his nominee in some impromptu remarks after his appearance at the United Nations Monday. The committee will not vote on his nomination until after Thursday's hearing. But after consultation with a lawyer, Ramirez told the magazine she felt confident enough in her recollection that it happened. "I will listen if she does". "Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person and I'm with him all the way".

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. "The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so", Kavanaugh said. There are 21 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee - 11 conservative Republican men and 10 Democrats.

Kavanaugh has also agreed to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing planned for 10 a.m. on Thursday.

As he builds a case for his innocence, Mr Kavanaugh plans to turn over to the committee calendars from the summer of 1982.
