Kavanaugh accuser Ford offers Senate 4 people who corroborate assault claims

Brett Kavanaugh: In terse email exchanges, Republicans stand firm on rules for sexual assault hearing

Kavanaugh rejected the latest allegations in a statement released by the White House. She said she had been nearly raped by someone who was now a federal judge.

Kavanaugh, a judicial conservative and Trump's second Supreme Court pick, was nominated to fill the vacancy created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement.

In an interview with Fox News aired on Monday night, Kavanaugh said he "never sexually assaulted anyone", had "always treated women with dignity and respect" and "did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter". The AP has not been able to corroborate them, and continues to investigate.

"Christine expressed anger at Mr. Turner's lenient sentence, stating that she was particularly bothered by it because she was assaulted in high school by a man who was now a federal judge in Washington, D.C.", Koegler wrote.

President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill earlier this month.

With the GOP's Senate control hanging on a razor-thin 51-49 margin, defections by any two Republican senators would seal his fate if all Democrats vote "no". The controversy has unfolded ahead of the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats seek to take control from the Republicans.

In her statement, Swetnick said she attended more than 10 house parties in the Washington area from 1981 to 1983 where Kavanaugh was present. He says she covered her mouth to prevent her screams after he pinned her on a bed.

"I'm not going to comment on her motivations", Wilkinson said on CNN, adding that she felt sorry for Ford for having been identified as Kavanaugh's accuser against her initial wishes. The documents are meant to show committee members that Ford did discuss the incident long before contacting lawmakers in July after Trump nominated Kavanaugh.

Ford said she does not remember some key details of the incident but believes it occurred in the summer of 1982, when she was 15, around the end of her sophomore year at the all-girls Holton-Arms School in Bethesda.

Kavanaugh said the allegations would not cause him to withdraw from the confirmation process.

It is from this experience that I concluded that although Brett was normally reserved, he was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk. "In retrospect, I said and did things in high school that make me cringe now", Kavanaugh said.

Kavanaugh's first accuser, California college professor Christine Blasey Ford, has said he assaulted her at a party decades ago when they were teenagers.

"She said well it might not be him, and there were gaps, and she was totally inebriated and all messed up", Trump told reporters.

Kavanaugh and his Republican allies have framed the allegations as part of a "smear campaign" by Democrats who have opposed his nomination from the beginning. Sexual assault is horrific.

Said Trump: "They could have pushed it through two and a half weeks ago and you wouldn't be talking about it right now, which is frankly what I would have preferred". "She thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not", Trump told reporters in NY.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer made it clear that Democrats on the committee planned to ask their own questions at Thursday's hearing. That could set up a vote in the full Senate early next week.

Kavanaugh, the president said, is "startled" by the claims, and his wife is "devastated".

The attorney for one of the women accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct says the Senate Judiciary Committee has not invited her to tell her story.

Ramirez claims that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and shoved his penis in her face while they played a drinking game in a dorm room along with other classmates at Yale University.
