Senate Judiciary Committee Schedules Friday Vote on Kavanaugh

What Message Is The Kavanaugh Nomination Fight Sending Young People?

And so if you're a quiet judicial person who spent your life largely in legal circles and all of a sudden out of the blue people are making these claims against you, you can imagine how you wouldn't think it was a fair process.

"And all I am asking for is fairness and that I'd be heard in this process", Kavanaugh told Fox News in a rare interview Monday night.

But since Blasey Ford's charges, one and possibly two more women have come forth with similar allegations of sexual assault or abuse when he was young.

"I have never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not ever". And he - nothing about what is being described about his conduct comports with the person I know.

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said on Monday he would not step aside after a second woman accused him of sexual misconduct decades ago, with President Donald Trump and fellow Republicans showing no signs of relenting in their push for his Senate confirmation.

"And this is an allegation about a party in the summer of 1982 at a house near Connecticut Avenue and East-West Highway with five people present". After "six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney", she felt confident enough to go public, the report said.

"My gut is they're trying to avoid a panel of all white guys asking tone-deaf questions", said Democratic Sen.

Kavanaugh has denied Ford's claim and that of another woman who has come forward with an allegation from his time at Yale.

MARTIN: Let me ask you - Kavanaugh was asked some uncomfortable questions in this interview about his history with heavy drinking.

Hoping the hearing will yield no new surprises, the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled its own vote on 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.

"I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford, at some point in her life, was sexually assaulted by someone in some place, but what I know is I never sexually assaulted anyone in high school or at any time in my life", Kavanaugh told Fox News. Ford has said Kavanaugh tried removing her clothes and covered her mouth to prevent screams after he pinned her on a bed during a high school party. "I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise".

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh leaves his house as U.S. Marshalls try to hide him from cameras with an umbrella in Chevy Chase, Maryland, U.S., September 25, 2018. "Republicans need to get this right, and based on what we are seeing so far, I have very serious concerns". He is a fine, fine man. And it would be sad, indeed, if something happened to reroute that. Their leaks seem to have gotten both The New Yorker and The New York Times on the story.

"His family has suffered".

MARTIN: Although that's exactly what you are doing for Brett Kavanaugh. "Hopefully, he will be confirmed quickly", the USA president said.

Bromwich also said it was hard to conclude that the upcoming hearing will be "fair and credible", which is what the Committee has sought, given that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is calling the accusations against Kavanaugh part of a Democratic Party "smear campaign". That is where we are.

In response to Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley saying, "If Ms. Ramirez submits evidence and testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which committee investigators have requested, we can decide how to proceed", Ramirez's attorney John Clune appeared on CNN with Anderson Cooper to suggest that GOP lawmakers are not pursuing this allegation.
