Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faces fresh allegations

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faces fresh allegations

The attorney Michael Avenatti has also said that he has a client with evidence of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh and that he could reveal that person's identity before Thursday.

Swetnick said she was a victim of one of those incidents in the early 1980s and that Kavanaugh and Judge had been present, though she did not say whether they had sex with her.

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh July 9 to the Supreme Court. "So I feel that if a woman is taking the time to talk about something that happened to her that we should be able to respect her and give her the time and investigate". Trump has dismissed both accusations as a "Democratic con job".

The committee was scheduled to hear from Kavanaugh's first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, on Thursday.

What that, Trump cast his lot with the accused in what has become a national reckoning over gender and sexual consent, and not just in furtherance of a long-sought conservative makeover of the high court. Charles Grassley, the top Republican on the committee, emphasized that the scheduling was procedural and only for a "potential" vote "if we're ready".

"Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh", the president tweeted. Ford alleges he witnessed the alleged assault.

Her husband, Russell Ford, stated that he became aware around the time the couple Wednesday in 2002 that his wife had "any experience with sexual assault", but she provided no details at the time.

In a statement, Mr Kavanaugh said: "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Trump Reaffirms Support For Top Court Pick, Says Testimony Was "Honest"
Dr Ford's testimony had an instant effect, prompting a number of victims of sexual violence to share their experiences. In Kavanaugh's testimony, he also said he was "100%" sure he did not sexual assault anyone. " "I am no one's pawn." ".

"The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!" The two met at a Mountain View, California, restaurant, where Ford arrived "visibly upset".

Avenatti declined to expand on the allegation in an interview Wednesday on ABC's "The View", saying he would not add detail beyond what was in the statement. I never had any sexual or physical encounter of any kind with Dr Ford. "I have never done any such thing, known about any such thing". The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out.

Rasor's willingness to testify could increase pressure on Senate Republicans to call for an FBI investigation into the multiple sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh and to subpoena Judge.

Kavanaugh denied her allegations in a statement released by the White House. Kavanaugh denies the allegation. Ramirez told the New Yorker in an article published Sunday that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at an on-campus party during the 1983-84 school year - when both she and Kavanaugh were freshmen. Kavanaugh has denied that allegation as well. Yet he appeared shaky at times.

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

The affidavits are not the first challenges to Kavanaugh's denials.

"I support Mrs. Ford's decision to share her story, and now that she has, it is in the hands of the FBI to conduct an investigation", Feinstein said in a statement. Speaking to reporters at the United Nations earlier in the day, he said Senate Republicans "could have pushed it through 2 1/2 weeks ago". "The second accuser doesn't even know - thinks maybe it was him, maybe not. She admits time lapses".
