Kavanaugh fights back in new statement: 'This is a completely false allegation'

Kavanaugh Doubles Down on Denial – But Makes Secret Visit to White House

"We want to go through a full process. and hear everybody out", Trump told reporters at an event on workforce development.

"This is a completely false allegation". But the president is predicting that it will "work out very well".

Democrats would like the Federal Bureau of Investigation to reopen a probe of the allegations from Kavanaugh's accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

Democrats have been bitterly opposed to Trump's choice of Kavanaugh for the nation's highest court.

The note has boxes to check for "yes" or "no" and seems to compare Mr Kavanaugh's accuser to a school yard crush.

Trump Jr. also "liked" a tweet from conservative actor James Woods that compared the accusation to a #MeToo "lynching".

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a statement early Monday afternoon that Ford "deserves to be heard" but stopped short of committing to a public airing that would likely force a delay of a planned committee vote on Thursday.

The left forgives President Bill Clinton despite his affair with a young intern and other allegations of abuse, and it forgives the Democratic lion Ted Kennedy for his complicity in the death of a young woman - because they align on the issues, Feehery points out.

Ford and Kavanaugh both agreed to testify under oath before the committee.

Which way Kavanaugh's nomination goes - to the high court or down in defeat - is all about the math of votes in the 100-member Senate.

"That's not relevant to credibility - when it took place and how it took place", Cardin said.

Grassley has not indicated whether he will do so. September 16: The Washington Post published an article in which Ford comes forward and details her allegations.

Johnson is not a member of the Judiciary Committee but said it is "appropriate" that the panel listen to both the accuser as well as Kavanaugh.

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I've ever known" Trump told reporters at the White House Monday.

Kavanaugh, Ford to testify at US Senate hearing on Monday
Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford revealed her identity as the author of an anonymous letter this weekend. In an updated statement , Kavanaugh said at the White House on Monday , "This is a completely false allegation ".

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is again denying a woman's allegation he sexually assaulted her at a party three decades ago.

Across multiple morning shows Monday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway pushed for Ford to be allowed to testify before lawmakers.

He is "a man of character and integrity" who has been widely lauded by other women, she said.

He had been on a smooth confirmation track, but the new allegations have roiled that process.

Republicans have blasted Democrats for the way in which the accusation came out - at the 11th hour, while for six weeks, the senior Democrat on the committee, Sen.

"This woman should not be insulted and she should not be ignored", Conway told Fox News.

Months later, after Anita Hill accused the judge of sexual harassment and testified about it on Capitol Hill, the number who said the Senate should vote to confirm had grown, with 58% who said yes, according to a Gallup poll. Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations against him.

Specifically, the countdown clock until Election Day in November, when Republicans' majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate could be in peril.

Debra Katz, an attorney for Ford, said Monday that Ford is willing to testify about her accusations before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The Post said the notes referred to four boys involved, which Ford said was an error made by her therapist.

The accused told the Washington Post that Mr Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed at a Maryland party in the early 1980s, clumsily tried to remove her clothing and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. While the President announced on Monday that he still stands behind Kavanaugh, Ford got a vote of support from someone who plays a former US president on TV.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, says she has questions about the allegation.

Yet a few Republicans have suggested there may have to be a delay, at least in the Judiciary vote on the nominee - which was scheduled for this Thursday - in order to hear from Ford. And certainly the Supreme Court nominee should want his name to be cleared before he assumes any judicial lifetime appointment.

Initially the sexual misconduct allegation was conveyed in a private letter without revealing Dr Ford's name.
