Brett Kavanaugh says he was a virgin in high school

25 Setiembre, 2018, 07:25 | Author: Gregg Anderson

On Sunday, the New Yorker magazine reported an allegation by a second woman. Ford said Kavanaugh pinned her down on a bed and unsuccessfully sought to remove her clothes. Kavanaugh has denied that event as well, through a statement from The White House.

Fox News is President Donald Trump's favorite network, and he often critiques his aides when they appear there.

The agreement and the latest accusation set the stage for a dramatic showdown as Kavanaugh and Ford each tell their side of the story.

The Missouri senator, who is the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, added that GOP leadership believes a vote on Kavanaugh "is something that everybody should be prepared to have a position on in the foreseeable future".

It came just a few hours after negotiators had reached an agreement to hold an extraordinary public hearing Thursday for Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who accuses him of sexually assaulting her at a party when they were teenagers.

Earlier Monday, Kavanaugh denounced the allegations as "smears, pure and simple" and said in a letter to leaders of the Judiciary panel, "I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process".

The committee's top Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein, has called on Grassley to postpone Thursday's hearing in order to investigate Ramirez's accusations. He and Ford are still scheduled to testify Thursday at this point.

Kavanaugh said it's possible he may have met Ford at some time, but he said they were not friends and did not travel in the same social circles.

Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans pointed to the lack of corroborating witnesses in Ramirez's story as well as Democrats' involvement with her coming forward behind the scenes as reasons to dismiss her allegation.

The pair say they want a "fair process".

Ford's lawyers said it was still unclear as of Sunday who will ask questions, as Republicans were trying to hire an outside female counsel for the role. The newspaper reports that the calendar shows basketball games, times he went to the movies, football workouts, and college interviews. It said that the allegation came to the attention of Democratic senators through a civil rights lawyer. "We're going to stick to it".

But Grassley also told her: 'I am committed to fair and respectful treatment of you, as you've requested.

Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, a moderate whose vote is critical to Kavanaugh's confirmation, wouldn't say Monday whether she's closer to a decision.

Judge Kavanaugh, do not delay the inevitable. Judge has told the committee he does not recall the incident.

Ford is the only person from the alleged party that hasn't provided a statement to the committee. Ford has alleged Kavanaugh was "stumbling drunk" when it happened.

Democrats again called for the FBI to investigate Ford's claims, a request that was unlikely to be met as President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have said it's unnecessary.

For his part, the judge isn't backing down - issuing a blanket denial of all the new allegations.

According to an email sent by Avenatti to the U.S. Senate judiciary committee, Kavanaugh, Judge and other male classmates allegedly participated in the "targeting of women with alcohol/ drugs" as a prelude to gang rapes.

Moreover, the West Wing aides who had urged Trump to remain muted in his response to the accusations anxious about how the president might react to an hourslong, televised hearing.

"I remember a penis being in front of my face", she said.

Any new nominee to the Supreme Court will likely not be confirmed in time for the November 6 US midterm elections.
