Trump Backs Supreme Court Nominee Despite New Sexual Assault Claim

At First Indecisive But Now Not So Sure Ford Kavanaugh Testimony 'Tentatively' Scheduled For Thursday

"I am with him all the way".

Mark Judge said, "I have no memory of the alleged incident".

Kavanaugh later contributed to prosecutor Kenneth Starr's report into Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, which outlined several grounds for Clinton's impeachment.

A White House spokeswoman says the administration stands by the nominee, labelling the allegation "the latest in coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear a good man down".

Michael Avenatti, best known as the attorney for former adult film actress Stormy Daniels, announced Sunday that he is representing a third woman "with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh".

Even The New York Timesdidn't pull the trigger on a deep-dive story on her story because they can't confirm anything.

Kavanaugh has denied Ramirez's accusation and labeled it a "smear".

The woman, Christine Blasey Ford, has agreed to testify before the Senate Judiciary committee Thursday morning.

U.S. President Donald Trump listens to his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh speak during his nomination announcement in the East Room of the White House in Washington, U.S., July 9, 2018.

The Post reported that Democratic aides have said Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee "are likely to pose questions" about Kavanaugh's involvement in Whelan's claims "directly to Kavanaugh, when he is under oath".


The letter says Ford "accepts" the committee's request that in the coming week she would "provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct".

Kavanaugh also denies those allegations.

"Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanagh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.", Keyser's lawyer Howard J Walsh who communicated with the committee on behalf of Keyser.

The new information came hours after the Senate committee agreed to a date and time for a hearing after almost a week of uncertainty over whether Ford would appear to tell her story.

"This is a completely and totally false allegation", he said after Ford came forward.

Before President Trump's nominee can be approved for the vacant seat on the USA top court, he has to be approved by the 20-person Senate Judiciary Committee and then the whole Senate.

She says they were both taking part in a drinking game at a dormitory party where people sat in a circle and selected others to drink. "More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Ford describes". The committee's 11 Republicans - all men - have been seeking an outside female attorney to interrogate Ford, mindful of the election-season impression that could be left by men trying to pick apart a woman's assertion of a sexual attack.

Kavanaugh denied all claims, saying in a statement that he looks forward to testifying before the Senate on Thursday and "defending my good name-and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building".

"We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, D.C., area during the 1980s" during which Kavanaugh and others "would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a "train" of men to subsequently gang rape them", Avenatti wrote.

With the conservative judge's confirmation prospects already hanging the balance, the news of a second set of allegations is likely to alarm Republicans who are hoping to push Kavanaugh's nomination through the Senate, where they hold a slim 51-49 majority.
