Trump Supreme Court nominee rejects 'false accusations'

Brett Kavanaugh Accused of Sexual Misconduct By a Second Woman - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Kavanaugh is denying both accusations and calling them a "smear".

The second claim against Kavanaugh dates to the 1983-84 academic year, which was his first at Yale University.

Democratic staffers on the Judiciary Committee who did not work for Feinstein contacted Bennet's office asking for a connection for Ramirez should she decide to come forward with allegations about Kavanaugh, the spokesperson said.

"Mr. Kavanaugh's actions, while many years ago, were serious and have had a lasting impact on my life".

"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", Kavanaugh added. Sitting beside his wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh - her first appearance since the allegations surfaced - the judge was given free rein to deny accusations that have now been leveled against him by two named women in addition to a third whose identity and detailed claims still remain elusive.

Kavanaugh today in an exclusive interview on Fox News, alongside his wife, reiterated that he was not withdrawing and looking forward to defending himself in front of the committee Thursday.

The magnitude of Woods's 80th PGA Tour victory wasn't lost on the president, who has partnered with Woods in the past. Woods played true to history in claiming this win.

Hatch also said he didn't "see any reason" to call Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge to testify before the Senate, despite the fact that The New Yorker reported Sunday that Judge's ex-girlfriend once recalled how he and other classmates took turns having sex with a drunken woman in school.

President Donald Trump is pledging his support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the sexual misconduct allegations against his choice are "totally political".

In the letter, Ford explains her motive for coming forward, and the timing of her allegations - which, being just ahead of the Senate vote on Kavanaugh, Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have called into question.

Kavanaugh's confirmation would solidify conservative control of the Supreme Court and advance Trump's goal of moving the high court and the broader federal judiciary to the right.

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. The unidentified person told the anonymous source that he heard of the allegation "either on the night of the party or in the next day or two".

He has denied both accusations. "The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh".

Red Cross holds disaster response training
The potential severity of Hurricane Florence has kick-started local Red Cross chapters into full-fledged assistance mode. Apple has made several donations to the American Red Cross in the past in response to natural disasters.

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". Reportedly, dozens of student protesters at Yale Law School, Kavanaugh's alma mater, also protested the confirmation, opposing a "hasty, biased, and incomplete investigation of the Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault allegations", according to the Cut. "And so it is pretty rich to hear McConnell say, 'This is the schedule, and we are going to stick to it'".

Republicans had been bullish about Kavanaugh's chances to ride out the storm, given that Ford did not appear to have any corroborating witnesses ready to testify.

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

He said he was not present at a party like the one described by Ford and noted that others Ford said were at the gathering had no recollection of it. But the judge said he never drank so much that he could not recall what happened while he was intoxicated.

Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford wrote Sen.

A defiant Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took the dramatic step of going on nationwide television Monday to address the sexual misconduct allegations that have put his confirmation at risk of unraveling.

Brett Kavanaugh faces unprecedented opposition to Supreme Court confirmation
President Trump has said that the FBI does not do investigations into allegations like those raised by Dr Ford. Kavanaugh wrote to Grassley in a letter released by the White House that he looks forward to testifying.

But Conway on Monday appeared to throw cold water on the accusations, stating she felt the mounting allegations were "starting to feel like a vast left-wing conspiracy".
