Trump's Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh rejects 'false accusations'

Trump's Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh rejects 'false accusations'

At a restaurant with a friend.

Since Ford came forward publicly with her allegation in The Washington Post, another woman has accused Kavanaugh of past sexual misconduct. His allies, including Trump, have cast doubt on the accusation in part because of a lack of corroboration.

Senators will hear both sides at Thursday's hearing, keenly aware of the impact it could have on voters, particularly women, against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault. Ford's name is not mentioned.

However, 35 percent of women said they believed Ford's version of events and 20 percent believed Kavanaugh. She claims Kavanaugh pinned her down, covered her mouth with his hand, and attempted to remove her clothes.

Some of Kavanaugh's classmates have said they remember him as a heavy drinker in high school and at college. Delaying Kavanaugh's confirmation could allow time for doubts about him to take root or any fresh accusations to emerge.

Asked whether Ramirez should also be allowed to testify, Trump said: "The second accuser has nothing".

He added: "It is also inconsistent with your stated wish to avoid a 'circus, ' as well as Dr. Blasey Ford's requests through counsel that senators conduct the questioning".

"We've had a number of email communications, but the difficulty is that every time we try to set up a phone call the majority party either changes the rules of the phone call or they want additional information as a condition of even having a phone call with us", said Clune.

"This is not a criminal trial for which the involvement of an experienced sex crimes prosecutor would be appropriate", the letter from Ford's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, said.

That changed at 2012 at a couples therapy session, he says in the affidavit.




He said that all of the witnesses identified by Dr Ford as being present at the party have said they have "no recollection of any such party happening" on the record to the committee. He said he did not question that perhaps Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted but said "what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone". Some Republicans, including Trump, have dismissed the allegations as part of a Democratic smear campaign created to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation. Trump instead chose Neil Gorsuch.

The charge has already delayed what was once though certain approval of his nomination, which is crucial to Republican hopes to turn the court sharply to the right for years to come, with huge implications for law on abortion rights and affirmative action programs. Gildo-Mazzon says she has a receipt from the restaurant for that meal. The two met at a Mountain View, California, restaurant, where Ford arrived "visibly upset".

"I think we'll all be here all weekend", said Sen. "She told me she had been trapped in a room with two drunken guys, and that she then escaped, ran away and hid".

"She told me that when she was a young teen, she had been sexually assaulted by an older teen".

Kavanaugh rejected the allegations in a statement released by the White House.

The first was in 2016 as Ford and Koegler, her son's baseball coach, "were standing together in a public place watching our children play together".

She claimed that boys at these parties used this technique to "gang rape" a drunk woman at the party with a "train" of men waiting in the hallway to have their turn.

While the green and white calendar detailing a summer from Kavanaugh's youth is filled with innocent memories, it now will have a serious use: attempting to prove his innocence against sexual assault allegations lodged against him amid a bid for the Supreme Court.

"I don't know who this is and this never happened".
