Lawyers submit 4 statements backing up assault story against Supreme Court nominee

Supreme Court Kavanaugh

Attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who says Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers, have sent four sworn declarations to the Senate from people who say Ford told them of her allegations before Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court.

A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh's, claims that he exposed himself to her and shoved his penis in her face at a dorm room party in their freshman year at the Ivy League school.

"The second accuser doesn't even know".

"He admits that he drank and did some things that he looks back on and says are embarrassing and make you cringe".

Trump accused Democrats of using a "con game" to derail Kavanaugh's bid for the Supreme Court...

Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) of the Senate Judiciary Committee might be getting nervous about Thursday's upcoming hearing about the alleged sexual misconduct of Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Ford is expected to detail her allegations that Kavanaugh drunkenly pinned her to a bed, groped her and put his hand over her mouth to stifle her screams as he tried to take off her clothes at a house party in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh said in an interview earlier this week with Fox News that he went to an all-boys Catholic high school where he focused on academics, and athletics. "'Whenever I'm at a prep school party, I always treat women with Dignity & Respect.'" He said Kavanaugh's yearbook also basically disproves his claim he's "always" treated women with dignity and respect, especially Renate Dolphin. But #MeToo has also been about believing survivors, and the treatment of Kavanaugh's accusers raises questions about whether that part of the mission remains largely unfulfilled.




Hoping the hearing will yield no new surprises, the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled its own vote on Mr Kavanaugh for Friday, and Republican leaders laid plans that could keep the full Senate in session over the weekend and produce a final showdown roll call soon after - close to the October 1 start of the high court's new term.

"You said in your letter that you intend to provide a "fair and credible process" that provides Dr. Blasey Ford "fair and respectful treatment, '" Bromwich wrote". "The whole point is to create an environment where it's what Dr. Ford has asked for, to be professional and to not be a circus".

With the election looming and their control of Congress at stake, Republicans have been mindful of the pitfalls of alienating women voters by their handling of the accusations against Kavanaugh.

"We're going to ask some questions on our side, by this person, for the same amount of time as the Democrats have collectively on the other side".

And an even bigger number (59 percent) thinks that if Ford's allegation is true he shouldn't be confirmed to the nation's highest court.

Clune said Ramirez was certain that Kavanaugh was involved despite President Trump on Tuesday questioning her account because she admitted she had been drinking at the time. I have no first-hand knowledge of any of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, but I thought this conversation was relevant as it goes to the question of his truthfulness. The judge has categorically denied that allegation as well. I've known him for 17 years", she said, adding: "I know his heart. There's no telling how Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will perform at the hearing.
