Kavanaugh Denies Second Sexual Misconduct Allegation

Kavanaugh Supreme Court 80944- The Latest Kavanaugh team says Ford hasn’t offered key info

Trump, speaking in NY where he was attending the United Nations annual assembly, threw his full weight behind Kavanaugh whose once straightforward progress to the nation's highest court has been hit by two bombshell accusations of sexual misconduct from his school and university days.

Conway said: "Are we going to put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man's shoulders?" He says the FBI must investigate his client's accusations, and claims she has "multiple additional witnesses".

"I think more cautious witnesses I've dealt with, in cases like this, very frequently say, "I want to take time to decide, want to search myself...and make sure I can affirmatively stand by these claims" in the face of what she knew would be a crucible of partisan push back".

The second claim against Mr Kavanaugh dates to the 1983-84 academic year, which was his first at Yale University. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, to immediately postpone confirmation proceedings until the FBI could investigate.

Trump also doubled down on his belief that the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh are suspect as they were not reported earlier.

Ford's lawyers said in a statement on Sunday: "Despite actual threats to her safety and her life, Dr Ford believes it is important for senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her". "Neither did (The New Yorker reporters)", he said.

Kavanaugh denied the story, calling it "a smear, plain and simple".

After the new allegations surfaced, Democrats called for a delay in Thursday's hearing.

But on Monday morning, the article's authors Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer appeared on ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's TODAY respectively to defend their reporting.

Republicans are frustrated over what they say was the deliberate timing of the last-minute revelation of Ford's allegation, accusing Democrats of seeking to prevent the process from finishing before the midterm elections in a few weeks.

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

Trump made clear on Monday he considered the allegations politically motivated.

Holton-Arms alumna Alexis Goldstein (C) and Sarah Burgess arrive at office of Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) to deliver a letter from more than 1,000 fellow Holton-Arms high school graduates supporting fellow graduate Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and their belief in her accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill in Washington, Sept. 20, 2018. It has also forced the White House and Senate Republicans onto the defensive and fueled calls from Democrats to postpone further action on his confirmation. Kavanaugh denies the claim.

Deborah Ramirez described the alleged incident after being contacted by The New Yorker magazine.
