Trump Calls Kavanaugh 'Outstanding,' Dismissing Latest Sexual Misconduct Allegation

The Latest GOP bringing in Arizona prosecutor for hearing

Kavanaugh has called the allegations a "smear, plain and simple".

Trump's comments come after Kavanaugh was hit with new sexual assault allegations from Deborah Ramirez, who says Kavanaugh put his penis in her face against her will at a party at Yale University when Kavanaugh was a freshman.

"For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago, and 30 years ago and never mention it - all of a sudden it happens", Trump said.

The agreement and the latest accusation set the stage for a dramatic showdown as Kavanaugh and Ford each tell their side of the story.

The White House is standing behind the president's nominee, saying this is the latest claim in a "coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

Conway said, "I don't think one man's shoulders should bear decades of the #MeToo movement" that has toppled powerful men across industries over the a year ago.

Mohamed Salah's sluggish start to the season is down to a fear of getting injured again after Sergio Ramos' tackle. That is good and good work from the fitness department.

Trump said that he would probably not be able to convince Democrats to vote for Kavanaugh, which means he would need the support of nearly every Republican in the Senate.

Kavanaugh accuser Ford agrees to testify...

Lindsey Graham says the furor surrounding sexual harassment claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a "total collapse of the traditional confirmation process". Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, to immediately postpone confirmation proceedings until the FBI could investigate.

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

Ford's husband, Russell Ford, was quoted by the Post as saying the thought that Kavanaugh could be considered for the Supreme Court after Trump took office troubled his wife so much that she considered moving as far away as New Zealand. And he wants the committee to question Judge Kavanaugh's high school friends and interrogate him on things from his yearbook.

He sent a second tweet specifying that this woman is not Ramirez.

The committee and the woman's lawyers have not yet agreed in negotiations over the terms of her appearance before the committee. The president's tweet brought blistering rejoinders from Democrats and a mix of silence and sighs of regret from his own party.

President Trump, seen at the United Nations on Monday, has called Brett Kavanaugh "an outstanding person" after second allegation of sexual misconduct.

'I know that's not what I wanted, even in that state of mind, ' she said.

In September 2018, she publicly alleged that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while the two were classmates at Yale University in the 1980s.

The New Yorker has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party.

Those calendars, he says, do not show a party consistent with Ms Ford's description of the gathering in which she says he attacked her, The New York Times reported.

The New Yorker story has come under fire for its reporting after the New York Times said its reporters had interviewed "several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with first-hand knowledge".

Trump disagreed, according to Borrell's recollection, adding that "the Sahara border can't be bigger than our border with Mexico". They have become magnets for African migrants seeking a better life in Europe and refugees fleeing persecution and conflict.
