Trump's Supreme Court pick faces new misconduct claim - USA

"And now it's clear to me it wasn't a joke". They want the FBI to reopen its background investigation of Kavanaugh and look into the allegations against him.

"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 - in my opinion, it's totally political". "I have faith in God and I have faith in the fairness of the American people", Kavanaugh said. The two incidents are alleged to have occurred within just a few years of one another. When asked about the allegations that he attempted to rape Ford and thrust his bare penis in Ramirez's face, Kavanaugh repeatedly denied doing any "such thing".

He was asked by Sean Hannity about the lack of corroboration for the allegations of sexual assault by Kavanaugh's first accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

He also presented an image of his character that departed radically from what was portrayed in the allegations, seemingly claiming his virginity at the time of the accusations as a defense.

Mr Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley, sat down for an interview with Fox News Channel's The Story With Martha MacCallum after a second woman accused him of sexual misconduct.

Shouldn't Gillibrand have stepped down from office back in March, when she was facing her own set of sex-tied accusations?

The New Yorker didn't confirm the allegation with eyewitnesses.

Still, the White House and Republicans have cast doubt on Ford's allegations.

Democratic Senator and committee member Richard Blumenthal echoed demands for an investigation. "And all I am asking for is fairness and that I'd be heard in this process", Kavanaugh, 53, said.

"She has agreed to move forward with a hearing even though the Committee has refused to subpoena Mark Judge", it said.

In a letter to Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Feinstein called for the Ford-Kavanaugh hearing to be canceled in light of the new allegation against Kavanaugh.

She remembers Kavanaugh standing to her right and laughing, pulling up his trousers. Kennedy was the frequently the court's swing vote.

A handful of senators in both parties remain undecided on Kavanaugh's nomination.

He added that Democrats refuse to let the facts get in the way of "a good smear", calling the episode "despicable".

Ford, now a California-based university professor, says Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to undress her when they were at a party in their school years.

Donald Trump has also, however, also spoken out in increasingly defensive and combative terms in favor of Kavanaugh in recent days as the process descended into a ugly, partisan battle. Two women have accused him of abusive behavior during relationships.

Sanders, like congressional Republicans, dug in against allowing the FBI to investigate the charges before the confirmation goes forward.

Trump nominated Kavanaugh for the seat of retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"Enough is enough", Fallon said in a statement. One can only imagine the disruptive show trial Leftists plan with Kavanaugh's accusers.

Rachel O'Leary Carmona of the Women's March echoed Fallon.

The Dems' real goal is to seize the Senate and House, giving them the power to block any Supreme Court nominees and launch impeachment proceedings against Trump. "And we won't stand for Senate Republicans' despicable attempts to strong-arm a sexual assault survivor".
