Here's What Brett Kavanaugh's College Roommate Has To Say

Kavanaugh

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Trump described Kavanaugh as a "gem" who had been unfairly maligned. But other outlets like the New York Times refused to report it because her account could not be corroborated. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell predicted Kavanaugh will be confirmed, saying, "I'm confident we're going to win".

Kavanaugh said in an interview earlier this week with Fox News that he went to an all-boys Catholic high school where he focused on academics, and athletics. "And she said she was totally inebriated, and she was all messed up, and she doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him". I ask for fair and respectful treatment, ' she wrote Grassley. And she says: 'Well it might not be him.' And there were gaps.

Ford's reply: "Brett Kavanaugh". Charles Grassley, who initially tried to forge ahead with a committee vote after her bombshell accusations first surfaced in the Washington Post.

But there's nothing ordinary about the stakes and circumstances of 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.

Ford's allegation and another accusation by a second woman have imperiled Kavanaugh's chances of confirmation to the lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court. "She said that she had been nearly raped by someone who was now a federal judge". I thought that knowledge of his actions could be useful for you and those in charge of choosing among the various candidates.

Ramirez says she grew up as a devout Catholic and that what happened to her in college was shocking.

As the hours ticked down to a historic hearing Thursday featuring Kavanaugh and one of his accusers, the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a confirmation vote for Friday, in case the panel is prepared to vote then.

Risks to the current run of economic growth, such as the threat of a damaging round of global tariffs increases, were largely set aside.

"I'm not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process", Kavanaugh said. The decision drew criticism from Democrats, whose 10 committee members include four women, given that senators typically do the questioning themselves.

During an television appearance Wednesday morning, Beth Wilkinson, a lawyer for Kavanaugh, declined to comment when asked what might motivate Ford to talk about Kavanaugh years before he was nominated.

The Republican majority on the committee, who are all males, have selected Rachel Mitchell, an Arizona sex crimes prosecutor, to question Ford and Kavanaugh. I've been on the committee for 24 years, and I've never seen it before.

Today, attorney Michael Avenatti released a sworn affidavit from Julie Swetnick, a D.C. resident and security-clearance holder in relation to her work with the federal government, stating that she attended several house parties in high school with Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was president during her alleged assault. But one said he had no recollection of the incident. She added, "I witnessed Brett Kavanaugh consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s".

"We've done it because we want to depoliticize the whole process, like the Democrats politicized the Anita Hill thing", said Grassley, who was on the Judiciary Committee in 1991. "She said that she had been nearly raped by someone who was now a federal judge".

Trump on Wednesday faulted Republicans for not pushing the nomination through the Senate, which must confirmation Supreme Court appointments, more quickly.

Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley, sat down for an interview with Fox News Channel's "The Story with Martha MacCallum" after a second woman accused him of sexual misconduct.
