Another woman accuses Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

Another woman accuses Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

"I don't have all the answers, and I don't remember as much as I would like to", she says in the testimony.

"It's possible I'll hear that and I'll say, 'Hey, I'll change my mind, '" Trump said.

She said she was drugged and gang-raped at a party in approximately 1982 at which Judge Kavanaugh was present. Yet both Ms. Ford, who has asked for Federal Bureau of Investigation involvement from the beginning, and Mr. Kavanaugh's lawyer, who complained about the lack of key evidence, have now said in their own way that the process Republicans chose is unsatisfactory. Mazzon said Ford told her about her encounter over dinner in June 2013, while White learned of it in 2017.

Swetnick's statement Wednesday follows similar allegations of lewd conduct by Kavanaugh during his high school and college years from Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez.

The first allegation came from Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed that Kavanaugh assaulted her while they were in high school by trying to take her clothes off and covering her mouth when she attempted to scream.

Senate Judiciary Committee Schedules Brett Kavanaugh Vote For Friday
In a break from convention, Mitchell will question Ford and Kavanaugh on behalf of the committee's Republican senators, 11 men. Ms Ramirez accused the judge of exposing himself to her at a dormitory party at Yale University in the 1983-84 academic year.

"I was accused by, I believe it was four women", Trump said. There was Trump denying people had laughed at him during his recent the United Nations address (they did laugh at him) and calling a member of Congress from California "little Adam Schiff". "It's a con game that they're playing". Avenatti also represents Stephanie Clifford, the adult film star known as Stormy Daniels who says she had an affair with Trump before he was elected president.

Mr Trump slammed his Democratic opponents over the handling of the Kavanaugh nomination, accusing them of being "con artists" and destroying the 53-year-old judge's reputation.

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.

In recent days, two other women have come forward with allegations, with Julie Swetnick being the latest accuser.

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone", Kavanaugh said.

Barça's Leo Messi will not attend FIFA's The Best gala in London
Salah received the Puskas award for the best goal , for his effort against Everton in the Premier League at Anfield last December. The best goalkeeper award will be fought for between Thibaut Courtois , Kasper Schmeichel and Hugo Lloris.

Trump said the accusations of sexual assault that have bedeviled him since the 2016 election "absolutely" affect his view of Kavanaugh's accusers: "It does impact my opinion".

But a spokesman for the committee told Agence France-Presse the letter lacked credibility and the panel had no way to investigate the matter because the complaint was anonymous. "To proceed with a vote before Kavanaugh's full record can be examined, especially in light of these sexual assault allegations, only compounds the serious concerns we already had about his nomination".

He said Democrats "go into a back room and they talk with each other and they laugh at what they're getting away with". Through her attorney, Swetnick has requested an FBI investigation.

Kavanaugh suffered an 11-point drop in net support from Republicans over the last week, according to Morning Consult - and this includes an 18-point drop in support from Republican women. "I'm going to see what's said".
