Trump slams Kavanaugh's second accuser

Share

The Senate Judiciary Committee is reviewing allegations by a third woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, a panel spokesman said Wednesday, in yet another potential blow to his prospects for Senate confirmation.

Senate Republicans have indicated their commitment to continue with Kavanaugh's nomination, and the judiciary committee is scheduled to hold a hearing with the nominee and Ford on Thursday.

Last week, he lampooned Ms Ford's allegation that an inebriated Mr Kavanaugh trapped her beneath him on a bed at a high school house party and tried to take her clothes off before she escaped. Dulcé Sloan shared her thoughts on Kavanaugh's assertion he was a virgin well into college, and she went heavy on the virgin-shaming. Kavanaugh denied he had any sexual contact with either Ramirez or Blasey Ford.

Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale University, told the New Yorker magazine that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they were both first-year students.

Swetnick says that Kavanaugh's claim that he did not have sexual intercourse until many years after high school is "absolutely false and a lie". "Because I've had it many times".

But he said there had been occasions when things had not gone smoothly, calling Syria's downing of the Russian plane "tragic". Since the downing of the IL-20 spy plane, Israel's relationship with Moscow has appeared to be rapidly deteriorating.

Hatch, who is one of three senators who sits on the committee now as well as during the 1991 Anita Hill hearing, added, "I don't think it's fair to Brett Kavanaugh, I don't think it's fair to our system, I don't think it's fair to the process".

Further adding to the drama, the Judiciary Committee released parts of Kavanaugh's 1982 calender in an effort to discredit the allegations. Trump said in a tweet.

"I'm not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process", Kavanaugh said.

Hoping the hearing will yield no new surprises, the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled its own vote on Mr Kavanaugh for Friday, and Republican leaders laid plans that could keep the full Senate in session over the weekend and produce a final showdown roll call soon after - close to the October 1 start of the high court's new term.

President Donald Trump said allegations of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh "affect" him because he has face similar allegations "many times".

Trump also mischaracterized the accusations against him, falsely claiming only four women had made allegations (more than a dozen did) and said they had been paid to do so (there has been no evidence to support that). And on Wednesday, a woman represented by Avenatti - who shot to fame as the attorney taking on the president for porn actress Stormy Daniels - made another accusation of misconduct.

Continetti referenced the view on the political right that Democrats are playing politics with the allegations against Kavanaugh in an attempt to delay his nomination until after the midterm elections.

In a statement, the judge said he did not know the accuser, Julie Swetnick, and her allegations "never happened".

They agreed to set the hearing for 10 a.m. on Thursday.

Christine Blasey Ford accused a drunken Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when both were teenagers at a house party.

A handful of undeclared GOP moderates leave Kavanaugh's fate uncertain because the party runs the Senate with just a 51-49 advantage.
