Kavanaugh Swiftly Denies New Allegations of Sexual Abuse

Another woman has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Trump's comments come after Kavanaugh was hit with new sexual assault allegations from Deborah Ramirez, who says Kavanaugh put his penis in her face against her will at a party at Yale University when Kavanaugh was a freshman.

"For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and-never mentioned it, all of a sudden it happens-in my opinion, it's totally political".

"I am with Judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote", Trump said.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegation made by Ramirez in a statement released through the White House, calling it "a smear, plain and simple".

The judiciary panel said it had talked to three other people who Ms Ford has told The Washington Post were at the party where the alleged assault took place - Mark Judge, Patrick J Smyth and Leland Ingham Keyser. "This 35-year-old uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear a good man down", said Kupec.

She was unsure of his role in the incident at first, but after six days of carefully assessing memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said she felt confident enough in her recollections to say she remembers it was Kavanaugh who had exposed himself.

Reports say Ford's lawyers - Debra Katz, Lisa Banks and Michael Bromwich - agree she will go first, to be followed by Kavanaugh.

Lindsey Graham says the furor surrounding sexual harassment claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a "total collapse of the traditional confirmation process".

Writer Ronan Farrow is defending his article in the New Yorker in which a second woman accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

A committee staffer emailed Avenatti "shortly after" he announced on Twitter he represented "a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge".

"Her name is Elizabeth Rasor, and she was at Catholic University with (Judge), and she said, "I feel a moral obligation to correct the record here, '" Mayer said, paraphrasing her source". Democrats were obviously free to investigate, but according to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Democrats withheld this info from Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Both allegations also come after the Senate already completed confirmation hearings and right before the Senate was scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, told the New Yorker. She says he covered her mouth and tried to remove her clothing.

Ramirez admitted to the New Yorker that there are gaps in her memory of the incident, and that she expects her memories to be questioned as she had been under the influence of alcohol.

Ramirez contacted several former classmates to ask if they recalled the incident and said she couldn't be sure it was Kavanaugh, The New York Times reported.
