Brett Kavanaugh Nomination Imperiled By Fresh Allegations

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

"We're looking for a fair process where I can be heard and defend my integrity, my lifelong record of promoting dignity and equality for women, starting with the women who knew me when I was 14 years old".

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.

The New Yorker magazine reported Sunday night that Senate Democrats were investigating a second woman's accusation of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh dating to the 1983-84 academic year, Kavanaugh's first at Yale University.

Mr Kavanaugh said: "I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter". He said he did not question that perhaps Ms. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted, "but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

In a statement obtained by Fox News, Kavanaugh calls Ramirez's allegation as a "smear".

"The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out", said Kavanaugh, who will testify Thursday before the committee. Kavanaugh may drop out himself, while his nomination could also be pulled by the White House or not accepted by the nomination committee.

"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man", Kupec said in a statement.

Joining the maelstrom, Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in her legal fight with President Donald Trump, claimed to represent a woman with information about high school-era parties attended by Kavanaugh and urged the Senate to investigate.




Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the Senate floor to give his strongest statement to date in defense of the judge, and to underscore his determination to give the president's nominee an up-or-down vote on the Senate floor.

For Trump, getting the conservative Kavanaugh into the lifetime appointment would cement his mission to shift the court to the right for years to come.

"I've never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not ever.

I am with him all the way", Trump said, calling the allegations politically motivated.

"Ramirez said that she hoped her story would support that of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who has raised an allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh that bears several similarities to Ramirez's claim".

Grassley's spokesman, George Hartmann, told CNN that the chairman will "look into" the new allegation, but there are no plans at the moment to delay the Thursday hearing. Delaying Kavanaugh's confirmation could allow time for doubts about him to take root or any fresh accusations to emerge.

Another statement from the committee on Sunday said it had reached out to four people, including Kavanaugh and Judge, who Ford has said were at the party. Judge Kavanaugh was defiant as well. The magazine said numerous people they contacted did not respond to interview requests, others declined to comment or said they did not attend or remember the party. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations and said he wants to testify before the committee. She says both she and Kavanaugh were intoxicated at the time and that she wasn't entirely sure of her memories. In order to be appointed to the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh's nomination must be confirmed by the US Senate, which the Republican Party narrowly controls 51-49. In one deeply personal exchange with MacCallum, Kavanaugh said that he was sexually inexperienced as a teenager. Then on September 16th, Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Kavanaugh, publicly spoke out about the experience to the Washington Post. The centrist Republican did not, however, call on Ramirez to testify in public, as she had done with Blasey last week. Sen. "And so it is pretty rich to hear McConnell say, 'This is the schedule, and we are going to stick to it'".
