Trump Calls Second Kavanaugh Accuser 'All Messed Up' and 'Totally Inebriated'

Today in Trump’s America Kavanaugh confirmation in doubt as more allegations surface

Today in Trump’s America Kavanaugh confirmation in doubt as more allegations surface

The committee vote is being set for the day after Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are to testify about her allegation he sexually assaulted her when they were teens. Thomas was confirmed to the high court. It is certain that McConnell will need to file a cloture motion to bring debate over President Trump's second Supreme Court pick to a close and proceed to a vote. "Unless there's something more, no, I'm not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this". Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from ME, who has yet to declare her position on confirmation.

Preparing for the hearing with Ford, Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley of Iowa said Republicans had hired an "investigating counsel" to handle questioning.

With the Judiciary Committee's GOP members all male, McConnell said the panel was hiring a "female assistant" to handle the questioning for Republicans "in a respectful and professional way". There has been no indication that GOP Chairman Chuck Grassley is considering that. As to whether they should be explored, he said he will leave that to the Judiciary Committee. Chris Coons of Delaware.

Also on Monday, Kavanaugh said he would not step aside, saying "the truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise". He has denied all allegations.

"The second accuser has nothing", Trump told reporters of Deborah Ramirez, who told The New Yorker in an interview published Sunday that she believes Kavanaugh thrust his penis in her face when they were freshmen at Yale University in the early 1980s.

Some in the White House expressed relief that Kavanaugh, 53, presented a positive image to counter the allegations. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican. She says Kavanaugh held her down on a bed, touched her sexually and tried to take off her clothes.

MARTIN: Sara Fagen - friend, former colleague of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - thanks so much for your time. "We must respect these women and judge Kavanaugh by handling these allegations with seriousness", Schumer said on the Senate floor. That's because Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, one of Kavanaugh's accusers, might be there. "This rush to judgment betrays any pretense of listening respectfully & honestly to a credible, courageous sexual assault survivor". Ramirez's two attorneys have not responded to CNN's multiple requests to confirm the account she gave to The New Yorker, and Kavanaugh has denied the allegation. He also said he did not remember being at a party with her.

"They're really con artists", Trump said of Democrats. I mean, I think, look; if you're in his shoes - and I know him very well.

"She admits she was drunks. She admits time lapses".

Judge set to decide whether Bill Cosby, 81, goes to prison
In April, Cosby was found guilty on three felony counts of sexually assaulting and drugging Andrea Constand in his home in 2004. He has watched the Cosby team's attacks on the court system intensify, and grow more personal, as the stakes grew.

Predictably, that played badly with Democrats.

"Women must be heard", she wrote in the caption. "How many women have kept their experiences quiet because they knew they would hear that?" Sen.

Kavanaugh, interviewed with his wife, said Trump called him Monday afternoon "and he said he's standing by me". "Women are paying attention".

Democrats are still calling for an FBI investigation of the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh - as if their actual preferred investigators in the media hadn't already failed in massive efforts to corroborate the claims.

Treatment of Ford, 51, on Thursday will be watched closely.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, remained quiet about her intentions but stressed that the Thursday hearing should continue - even while the senator called for Ramirez to speak to the Judiciary Committee under oath.

Clune said, "I don't know what else we can do if they're not going to engage, but blaming us for being non cooperative is just, you know, flat out not consistent with how things have gone and what the emails show".

Grassley is planning to use his committee's modest-sized hearing room instead of a far larger chamber that's often home to high-profile hearings.
