Kavanaugh accuser Ford agrees to testify Thursday; 2nd accuser steps forward

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh looks over his notes during a third round of questioning on the third day of his Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing Thursday Sept. 6 2018 on Capitol Hill in Washington

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh looks over his notes during a third round of questioning on the third day of his Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing Thursday Sept. 6 2018 on Capitol Hill in Washington

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, immediately called for a postponement of Kavanaugh's nomination and called for the FBI to investigate both Ford and Ramirez's allegations. Senate Republicans should stand up to these unsubstantiated and discredited allegations and move forward with a vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

On Sunday, The New Yorker reported that a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's claimed the nominee exposed himself to her at engaged in unwanted contact at a dormitory party 35 years ago. Do you think this is a credible allegation?

Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, remained steadfast in his support for Kavanaugh. "Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person and I am with him all the way".

Protesters opposing Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation have held rallies in Washington, New York, Philadelphia and elsewhere.

Still, McConnell said that Ford, the first woman to come forward with accusations against Kavanaugh dating to their time in high school in suburban Washington, would be testifying at the Judiciary Committee as scheduled on Thursday. "It should be fully investigated", judiciary committee member Sen.

Progressive activist groups say the latest allegation adds to their efforts to derail his nomination.

Flake, who is retiring from the Senate in early January, was among the handful of Republicans who first said the committee should delay a vote until hearing from Ford.

While their stories prompted a nationwide outcry for his nomination to be rescinded, the women also faced significant backlash from the Republican party, who want to see his confirmation go through. "The last minute character assassination will not succeed", he wrote.

He told the Values Voter conference, "In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court".

Christine Blasey Ford's accusations and the standoff over the terms of her appearance have left Kavanaugh's confirmation in limbo. She accused him of attacking her and trying to remove her clothing while he was drunk at a party when he was 17 years old and she was 15.

Kavanaugh has denied Ramirez's accusation and labeled it a "smear".

The GOP letter to Ford's lawyers said Kavanaugh and his family have received death threats, too. They then marched to the Supreme Court.

"We need to hear from her", Flake said.

Rachel O'Leary Carmona of the Women's March echoed Fallon. Will she release a statement after the interview tonight or wait to make her reply Thursday with the nation watching? The women making the allegations, Trump said, "were coming out of the woodwork and, he said, "in my opinion totally political". It is totally political".

The New Yorker got in touch with several other students who confirmed they had heard this story-and that Kavanaugh was the perpetrator-but none who could confirm that he was actually present at the party, which sounds awfully familiar: Everyone supposedly present at the party where Ford was allegedly assaulted has similarly denied Kavanaugh was there.

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

For Trump, getting the conservative Kavanaugh into the lifetime appointment would cement his mission to shift the court to the right for years to come.

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.
