Trump's Supreme Court pick faces new misconduct claim - USA

Second woman accuses US Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault

"We certainly hope he's going to be confirmed, and quickly".

But there was nothing ordinary about the stakes and circumstances of Mr Kavanaugh's nomination, with Republicans fighting to get him on the court by the end of September and cement a conservative-leaning court for years to come.

Plunging into the high-stakes battle over the future of the court, Trump rejected a claim by Deborah Ramirez that Kavanaugh was the person who dropped his trousers and thrust his penis in her face at an alcohol-fuelled Yale University dorm party about 35 years ago.

Ford, meanwhile, agreed to testify on Thursday after an increasingly ugly weeklong standoff that saw her forced to leave her California home as she faced death threats and Trump attacked her credibility.

"Brett Kavanaugh said he is "not going anywhere" despite the sexual misconduct allegations levied against him".

Instead, in a carefully worded response, she said: "I think it is important that we have a process that is viewed as credible and respected". "Oh gee, let's not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that".

Trump reserved most of his ire for the Democrats, whom he accused of playing a "very unsafe game" and hurting Kavanaugh's family.

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.

A comment by Murkowski to CNN on Tuesday could be an ominous sign for Kavanaugh. But Murkowski, asked about an FBI investigation, said, "It would sure clear up all the questions, wouldn't it?" "He's a high-quality person, he's a great intellect", Trump said in remarks to reporters at the United Nations. Ford's attorneys have said their client wants senators to ask the questions.

"I was not at the party described", Mr Kavanaugh said.

The Senate Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer, says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell owes Christine Blasey Ford an apology for calling her allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh a smear job.

"This is a high quality person, and it would be a awful insult to our country if this doesn't happen", Mr. Trump added. Regarding alcohol, he said he never drank so much that he could not remember what happened the night before.

"This is America we're talking about". "What we use to define sexual harassment, assault, and abuse is a lack of consent - not whether there was vaginal penetration or a certain act committed, but that there was sexual contact without consent... I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter". "But the American people also insist that vague, unsubstantiated and uncorroborated allegations of 30-plus-year-old misconduct, where all the supposed witnesses either totally deny it or can't confirm it, is nowhere near grounds to nullify someone's career or destroy their good name". So you're saying that because she was drunk it was her fault?

Amnesty International has called for a vote on the nomination to be stopped - but the intervention is not based on either of the allegations by Dr Ford and Ms Ramirez.

Ashley Kavanaugh was the personal secretary to President George W. Bush when Brett Kavanaugh worked in the White House.
