New sexual-misconduct accusation rocks Kavanaugh nomination

Brett Kavanaugh

US President Donald Trump on Monday branded sexual assault allegations that threaten to bring down his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh "totally political", hardening his position ahead of an explosive Senate showdown.

The Committee will tentatively hear the testimony of Ford on Thursday regarding her allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, a media report said Saturday quoting a source familiar with the development.

In addition, some of us knew Debbie long after Yale, and she never described this incident until Brett's Supreme Court nomination was pending.

"I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents".

Four Democratic senators have received information about the allegation through a civil rights lawyer, and at least two have begun investigating it, according to the report.

Though Ramirez was initially hesitant to characterise her memories, which contained gaps due to the alcohol, after six days of "carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney", Ramirez felt confident in her recollections.

Like Dr. Ford, Ramirez is calling on the FBI to investigate Kavanaugh.

The timeline regarding when Senate Republicans learned of this allegation is significant.

"This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanaugh".

Ford on Sunday committed to testifying in an open hearing on Thursday about her allegation. Ramirez asked that the FBI investigate her story saying, "At least look at it".

"This is a smear, plain and simple", Kavanaugh said.

"The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh", Kupec said.

Last Friday, Senator Charles Grassley-chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee-publicly presented an ultimatum to Ford demanding a quick response to the committee's invitation to testify regarding her claim.

The White House and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denied an allegation Sunday made by a second woman accusing him of inappropriate sexual behavior.

Ms Ford's lawyers Debra Katz and Lisa Banks had said that many aspects of Mr Grassley's latest offer were "fundamentally inconsistent" with the committee's promise of a "fair, impartial investigation".

While the calendar will likely be central to any hearing held by the Senate Judiciary Committee, many people on Twitter didn't think the calendar was a good defense.

The source pointed to the timing, coming out after Kavanaugh's hearing and after a delay in the committee vote, adding that thus far the allegations are unsubstantiated and uncorroborated.

Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, remained steadfast in his support for Kavanaugh.

Speaking with reporters at the United Nations in New York, Trump said Kavanaugh is "outstanding" and claimed the allegations against him are "totally political," the Associated Press reported.

White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec called the new allegation part of a "coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man". Ramirez is cited by the New Yorker as saying Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken dormitory party.

"There's a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything", the president said on the sidelines of a United Nations conference in NY hours after another accuser came forward alleging sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh. The anti-sexual-harassment organization Times Up tweeted on Sunday that "WOMEN MUST BE HEARD" in a "MOMENT OF SOLIDARITY" with Kavanaugh's accusers, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez.
