Kavanaugh Swiftly Denies New Allegations of Sexual Abuse

"And now it's clear to me it wasn't a joke". Kavanaugh has denied the allegation, as have all other former classmates who were alleged to have been at the party who spoke to the New Yorker. Blasey, who was around 15 at the time of the incident, has said publicly that she did not report it to the authorities, and that she does not recall exactly when it took place. This is a smear, plain and simple.

President Donald Trump is not abandoning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the sexual assault allegations Kavanaugh faces are "totally political". The two incidents are alleged to have occurred within just a few years of one another.

Mr Grassley's staff also agreed to let Ms Ford testify without Mr Kavanaugh in the room, for there to be only one camera in the room, "adequate" breaks and a high security presence.

"Despite actual threats to her safety and her life, Dr. Ford believes it is important for senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her", the lawyers said in a statement.

If the answer to any one of the above is no, and Kavanaugh is confirmed despite credible evidence that he shouldn't be, then millions of women don't even need to ask who owns their bodies. California's Diane Feinstein, the committee's top Democrat, sent a letter Sunday to Republican chairman Chuck Grassley urging him to refer the new allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in order to ensure "a fair, independent process that will gather all the facts".

A request for comment to Charles Grassley, the chair of the Judiciary Committee was not immediately returned. "Neither she nor her legal representative have contacted the chairman's office". And they're allegations that are over 30 years old. "The article reports that Democratic staff were aware of these allegations, but they never informed Republican staff".

"This may be the first time we ever heard of allegations against someone as a teenager who did not prey upon women thusly as he became powerful", Conway said during an appearance Monday on "CBS This Morning". She also asked the committee's chairman, Sen. "I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as "PJ" who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post", Smyth said in his statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee. As of Sunday evening, Trump had not spoken to Kavanaugh himself. Kennedy was the frequently the court's swing vote. The developments could also determine the fate of Kavanaugh's confirmation, which hangs on the votes of a handful of senators. His nomination is viewed by both parties as a critical fight ahead of the midterm elections in November.

A White House spokeswoman added in a second statement that the allegation was "designed to tear down a good man".

"He is a fine man with an unblemished past and these are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers", Trump said.

Trump's searing reproach defied the Senate Republican strategy, and the advice of White House aides, of not disparaging Ford while firmly defending his nominee and the tight timetable for confirming him.

After the new allegations surfaced, Democrats called for a delay in Thursday's hearing.

"The Republican viewpoint is that the left is trying to create a pattern of sexual misconduct in order to make him radioactive", the source said.

The judge has denied both allegations, labelling the latest "a smear".
