Another woman accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault

Hollywood shows solidarity with Kavanaugh accuser Ford in walkout

Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley Kavanaugh, will appear in an unusual - if not unprecedented - interview, in which they'll address the allegations of sexual misconduct the Supreme Court nominee is facing, with Fox News on Monday night. "A quiet, serious, thorough background check (of Judge Kavanaugh) by the Federal Bureau of Investigation". "This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen", he said. The women making the allegations, Trump said, "were coming out of the woodwork and, he said, "in my opinion totally political".

Others argued that the interview was orchestrated to appeal to conservatives - given that Fox is the go-to network for the president and his followers - and is not an attempt to fix Kavanaugh's reputation among the broader population, with whom he is deeply unpopular. Ford claims Kavanaugh attempted to remove her clothing, and covered her mouth so she could not scream, during a party at Georgetown Prep. The New Yorker didn't confirm the allegation with eyewitnesses. They were both present at a party in a dorm room their freshman year, Ramirez told The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer. Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels' lawyer, is representing the woman, who says Kavanaugh, Judge, and others purposely got women drunk at college parties to later assault them, with men taking turns one after the other to rape intoxicated women.

The New York Times said it declined to do so after failing to substantiate Ramirez's account.

One of the six people was Ramirez's best friend, with whom she shared intimate details of her life. I've never done any such thing, known about any such thing. It never came up. "I have faith in God and I have faith in the fairness of the American people". Hoping to head that off, he and his GOP supporters went on offense, including the release of a letter he sent the Judiciary panel accusing his opponents of launching "smears, pure and simple". There is now a frenzy to come up with something-anything-that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring.

"I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh", Feinstein wrote. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out.

Ford also wrote that she has been the target of death threats and her family has had to relocate.

He called the allegations "grotesque and obvious character assassination" and says they could dissuade others from entering public service.

Ramirez was initially hesitant to speak publicly, she told the magazine, partly because her memory contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident.

Tom Brady pulled the Patriots within three points on a 10-yard TD pass to James White early in the third. "Brady's my quarterback. The Patriots have now lost two games in a row and are just 1-2 this season. "I don't think anyone is eliminated today".

The Associated Press tried reaching Ramirez at her home in Boulder, Colorado.

"While I am frightened, please know, my fear will not hold me back from testifying and you will be provided answers to all of your questions", Ford wrote.

Kavanaugh denied the allegation under oath and under penalty of felony shortly after the accusation was made public. 18, 19, and 22, respectively.

The White House is approaching Ms Ford's potential testimony with trepidation, nervous that an emotional performance might not just damage Mr Kavanaugh's chances but could further energise female voters to turn out against Republicans in November. "He is not qualified for a lifetime appointment to our nation's highest court". This has all of the ingredients of a smear campaign on steroids.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham says the furor surrounding sexual harassment claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a "total collapse of the traditional confirmation process". Lindsey Graham of SC, a member of the Judiciary Committee, had similar counsel.

"Every accuser deserves to be heard".

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, backed up here by his wife Ashley, sat for three straight days before the Senate Judiciary Committee in early September. "But the way my Democratic colleagues have approached these allegations makes clear that the driving objective here is not truth, but politics", Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah). "The arrangements made to re-open and continue the confirmation hearing on Thursday will allow you to testify and also will allow the nominee to address the allegations made against him".
