Second woman makes allegation against Kavanaugh

Second woman makes allegation against Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh has denied both allegations against him.

Mr Grassley said that if she missed that deadline, he would scrap the hearing and his committee would vote on sending Mr Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate. A search on OpenSecrets.org reveals Keyser's only political donation has been to former Democratic senator Byron Dorgan.

Kavanaugh has called Ford's allegation "completely false" and said in a statement provided by the White House on Sunday night the incident described by Ramirez "did not happen".

President Trump is standing by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after another round of allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior, this time from when Kavanaugh was a student at Yale.

All of Ford's alleged witnesses of the party, both male and female, have now denied any recollection of attending such a party. The GOP has faced enormous pressure from its base of conservative leaders and voters to swiftly approve Mr Kavanaugh, who would become the second of Trump's nominees to sit on the nation's highest court.

Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who came forward last week, has agreed to be questioned publicly at a committee hearing on Thursday.

Kavanaugh's most recent refutation of the accusations uses his calendar from 1982 and its lack of a note regarding the party as evidence backing up his denial.

"I would say that's extremely typical of these stories, when you're dealing with trauma, alcohol, many years in between".

Debbie Ramirez (above), a resident of Colorado, has come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. She has said there are gaps in her own knowledge, that she was - she was inebriated as well.

Trump has called Ford's allegation into question, writing on Twitter on Friday 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".

Joshua, promoter want deal made with Wilder before December 1
Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, would prefer Wilder over Fury (27-0, 19 KOs), 30, and says he wants a deal agreed by December 1. Eddie Hearn has put a six-week deadline on talks to make a blockbuster showdown between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder .


One of the authors behind the latest account into accusations against Kavanaugh, Jane Mayer, told "CBS This Morning" that at a "certain point.there's things people won't say to a reporter that they might feel they need to say to the Federal Bureau of Investigation". "She went into many details and at the end of our conversation I told her that I believed her and that it was important she tell me if, what she wished me to do with information, if in fact she chose another path. This came to the attention of people on the Hill independently and it's really cornered her into an awkward position", Farrow said.

Kavanaugh denies the women's allegations, calling Ramirez's claim "a smear, plain and simple".

Earlier on Saturday, a senior official at the White House said Ms Ford's requests amounted to "a clever way to push off the vote Monday without committing to appear Wednesday".

The potentially explosive hearing, set against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault, comes just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans.

King said Ford's allegations were not credible because she could not remember exactly when or where the alleged assault took place. She says she is willing to testify, but she says she still wants negotiations.

Rep. Steve King fiercely defended Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend at an Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition event, saying that accusations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman who went to high school with him amounted to "character assassination".

Committee staff has agreed to several additional requests from Ford and her attorneys.

She alleges Mr Kavanaugh exposed his genitals at a dormitory party and thrust them in her face, causing physical contact without consent.

The latest allegation comes as Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her while they were both in high school, and Kavanaugh are expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
