President Trump: Sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh 'totally political'

Trump's Supreme Court pick faces new misconduct claim - USA - Chinadaily.com.cn

He says she says "she was totally inebriated and all messed up".

"I am with him all the way", Trump said between meetings at the United Nations.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing for Thursday to hear from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who last week accused him of sexual assault in 1982.

Democrats have largely avoided talking extensively about Ramirez's accusations, instead focusing on Ford and their push for the GOP to conduct an FBI investigation.

"What a shame", he said.

His first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will give evidence to the committee on Thursday, followed by rebuttal testimony from Judge Kavanaugh, BBC report said. She was 15 at the time, he was 17, and Ford claimed to have three witnesses.

Protesters opposing Kavanaugh's confirmation held rallies in Washington, New York, Philadelphia and elsewhere.

Bromwich asked for the prosecutor's resume "immediately" and for a meeting with her Tuesday.

Debbie Ramirez (above), a resident of Colorado, has come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. He has denied sexually assaulting anyone.

James Roche, a software company CEO, who shared a dorm room with Kavanagh at Yale University, in CT, in 1983, has spoken out against the Supreme Court pick. The Democratic Party has called for the vote to be postponed till the allegations of assault are investigated.

He also said of Ford's accusations "I was not at the party described".

Roche (53), now living in Colorado, said that he was "not a political person" and has "no political agenda" but wanted to speak out at this time because he believes Ramirez "has a right to be heard" he added "I believe her".

McConnell's emphasis on fairness comes as Republican leaders have ramped up efforts to solidify support for Kavanaugh among GOP senators. Ford accuses Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her at a party when both were in high school. Denying the allegations against him, he vowed that he won't be "pushed out" of the confirmation process. With the GOP's Senate control hanging on a razor-thin 51-49 margin, defections by any two Republican senators would seal his fate if all Democrats vote "no".

She said on CBS "This Morning" that the allegations against Kavanaugh, now by a second woman, sound like a "vast left-wing conspiracy". Ford has said Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed during a party in the 1980s when both were high school students, tried to pull off her swimsuit, grinded on top of her, and covered her mouth.

"As the President of a great country, Colombia, you must say, 'How is this possible?'" Trump asked the Colombian president.

"The allegations against Judge Kavanaugh are all from when he's a teenager, and then we're supposed to believe he's a judge of a dozen years, hiring female law clerks?" "I am not questioning and have not questioned 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".

"This is a smear, plain and simple", Kavanaugh said.

The interview saw Kavanaugh continue a tone he struck in a letter Monday to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking minority member Dianne Feinstein.

"The second accuser has nothing".

The setting of the Kavanaughs' interview was carefully constructed to provide them with what amounted to a journalistic safe haven.

Kavanaugh on Monday went on Fox News accompanied by his wife, Ashley, to defend his name.
