McCONNELL: 'Senate Democrats Trying to Destroy Kavanaugh's Life'

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer demanded Tuesday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell apologize to Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, following remarks McConnell made that said an "evil smear campaign" was targeting President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

President Trump attacked Brent Kavanaugh's second accuser Tuesday, saying she "has nothing" and was "totally inebriated and all messed up" during a college party at which she said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her. Ford is set to testify publicly at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday about the allegations and Kavanaugh is expected to testify afterward in response to the same panel. On Sept. 21 he shamed Professor Ford for not coming forward when she says the alleged sexual assault attempt occurred.

Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker that there were "significant gaps" in her memory from that evening but after talking with her attorney she was confident enough to speak out. While Kavanaugh has denied Ford's account as "a completely false allegation", the claim has disrupted his confirmation process.

Participants were encouraged to wear black and use the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors in solidarity with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her when they both were teenagers in the 1980s.

Ramirez alleged in an article published by The New Yorker Sunday night that while she and Kavanaugh both attended Yale University in the early 1980s, he pulled down his trousers and exposed himself to her. She said she remembers a student pointing a gag plastic penis in her direction, and later, that student and another standing nearby as she was on the floor, with a third student exposing himself to her.

He said for the left "there are no rules" when it comes to opposing the Trump administration and trying to "destroy" the president.
