Brett Kavanaugh: Other accuser comes forward, Michael Avanetti third accuser, more

Brett Kavanaugh: Other accuser comes forward, Michael Avanetti third accuser, more

Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, twice offered words of support for Kavanaugh while in NY to attend the U.N. General Assembly.

The Senate's top Republican says unconfirmed, decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh are no reason to block his Supreme Court nomination.

"The second accuser has nothing".

Ashley Kavanaugh was asked whether she wondered if her husband was telling the truth about the allegations against him.

The New Yorker said Ramirez had hesitated to speak publicly, partly because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged episode and there were "gaps" in her memory.

The Senate Republicans who oversaw three days of hearings on Kavanaugh are preparing to hand over their normal investigative role int he blockbuster hearing set for Thursday.

"He's a high-quality person, he's a great intellect", Trump said in remarks to reporters at the United Nations.

Ramirez told her story in a piece published in the New Yorker over the weekend.

"The Democrats are playing a con game". "If Ms. Ramirez submits testimony and evidence to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which committee investigators have requested, we can decide how to proceed". "I've always treated women with dignity and respect", he said.

It's rare for nominees to the Supreme Court to give any interviews at all.

Mr Trump has a second opportunity to shape the Supreme Court with his nomination of Mr Kavanaugh to replace the departing Anthony Kennedy. And the people who have known and worked with him, including people in high school and people who went to law school with him, say does not comport with the Brett Kavanaugh we knew at this period of our life.

In the interview, which was taped before McCallum's show was to air at 7 p.m. EDT, Kavanaugh essentially repeated what he wrote in a letter sent Monday to Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley and ranking member Dianne Feinstein. "They finally did reach him, and he said we are not issuing a statement". The women I knew in college and the men I knew in college said it's inconceivable I could have done such a thing.

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

He said of Kavanaugh, "This is a high quality person, and it would be a disgusting insult to our country if this doesn't happen".

Republicans said they were determined to push the nomination through the narrowly-divided Senate as soon as a possible, rejecting Democratic calls to freeze the process to let the FBI investigate all of the allegations. "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing", she told The Washington Post, recounting the alleged incident at a high school party "one summer in the early 1980s".

Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against Brett Kavanaugh are serious.

She says President Donald Trump "has said a number of times these individuals should be heard".

"He was so truthful", Trump said about the judge's interview on Fox News on Monday in which he denied the accusations.

Just hours later, The New Yorker dropped a new bombshell, reporting that a second woman was accusing the Washington appeals court judge of sexual misconduct, while they were students at Yale University around 1983-84. Her mother, father and two siblings are all conspicuously absent from a letter of support released by a dozen relatives, mostly on her husband's side of the family.

The Kavanaugh controversy is unfolding just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Republicans, against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault.
