Brett Kavanaugh to deny sex assault allegations in Senate testimony

Brett Kavanaugh to deny sex assault allegations in Senate testimony

President Trump on Tuesday casting doubt on the CREDIBILITY of the second woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct...

Kavanaugh denies the allegations.

The move would place the panel's decision just a day after it is set to hear testimony from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a woman who has accused him of sexual assault during a party in their high school years. Regarding alcohol, he said he never drank so much that he could not remember what happened the night before. Meanwhile, 32% say they would support someone who is in favor of his nomination, and 27% claim Kavanaugh's nomination makes no difference to their voting choices.

President Donald Trump attacked the accuser's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, on Twitter as "a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations" and as a "total low-life!"

She said she feared he might accidently smother her ...

"We have to listen to what she will say on the record, under oath, and what Judge Kavanaugh will say on the record, under oath", Murkowski continued. She can tell the country how the attack transformed her life, how the memory is seared into her mind and the price she has paid, first for living with a bad secret and now for coming forward. "I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking", she said in the statement. And she was totally inebriated and all messed up, and she doesn't know. She can rightly describe that treatment as another assault on her, another attempt to dehumanize her.

Ashley Kavanaugh was asked whether she wondered if her husband was telling the truth about the allegations against him.

Swetnick and Avenatti did not immediately respond to requests for comment. He's denied those allegations.

The accusation, along with one from a second accuser, have imperiled Kavanaugh's lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court as Republicans work to shore up his Senate confirmation ahead of the Nov 6 congressional vote. "I've never done any such thing, known about any such thing".

Senate Republicans are beginning to schedule votes aimed at putting Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.

The controversy over Kavanaugh is unfolding just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans, against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault.

Correction: September 26, 2018 12:00 am - An earlier version of this story incorrectly said Brett Kavanaugh spoke to Fox News on Tuesday.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of "targeting vulnerable girls" at high school parties in the 1980s.

Ramirez, 53, told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away at a party during the 1983-84 school year at Yale.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

Mounting allegations and a passionate social media campaign from sexual assault survivors across the country has not slowed Senate Republican momentum to confirm Kavanaugh sooner rather than later.

Dianne Feinstein of California, that he saw no reason to delay Thursday's hearing with Kavanaugh and Ford amid the new allegations.

During the Fox interview, Kavanaugh said that while there were high school parties with beer and he wasn't flawless, "I'm a good person". I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room. "It seems like Kavanaugh is so desperate to get this gig, that he's willing to say anything - and I mean anything".

Republicans for the committee led by Sen.

The latest developments in the pitched battle over Kavanaugh's confirmation added to the perception of Washington as paralysed by partisan rancour and legislative dysfunction. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) called the joke "sickening".

It's rare for nominees to the Supreme Court to give any interviews at all.

Key Republicans said they thought the hearing scheduled for Thursday should go forward.
