Trump assails Boulder woman accusing Kavanaugh: ‘She admits that she was drunk’

A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, accused Kavanaugh in an article published in the New Yorker magazine on Sunday of sexual misconduct during the 1983-84 academic year when both attended Yale University.

Bromwich also said it was hard to conclude that the upcoming hearing will be "fair and credible", which is what the Committee has sought, given that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is calling the accusations against Kavanaugh part of a Democratic Party "smear campaign".

Lawyer Beth Wilkinson tells CNN Wednesday that whether or not Kavanaugh drank isn't the issue.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., joined by Sen.

The most explosive of Swetnick's allegations, though, is a claim that she witnessed efforts by Judge, Kavanaugh "and others to "target" particular girls" using spiked punch "so they could be taken advantage of". "She doesn't know if it was him but it might have him".

Yale law students protest Kavanaugh nomination
Protesters carrying signs and chanting slogans filled hallways outside the offices of Sen. If she and another Republican oppose Kavanaugh, his nomination could fail.

"Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person". "I don't know if she has, but I do think that is important". Ford has said Kavanaugh tried removing her clothes and covered her mouth to prevent screams after he pinned her on a bed during a high school party. Details of the accusation were leaked over the following weekend to the Washington Post. He added, "Obviously with this one we have a contact and our lawyers are on it right now".

But there's nothing ordinary about the stakes and circumstances of Kavanaugh's nomination, with Republicans fighting to get him on the court by the end of September and cement a conservative-leaning court for years to come. He described his nominee as "a real gem" and said he probably would have pushed for faster confirmation rather than waiting for Ford's testimony. "She said that she had been nearly raped by someone who was now a federal judge. I am innocent of this charge".

"Brett Kavanaugh", Ford responded by email, according to Koegler, her son's baseball team coach.

Tens of millions of people will be watching Christine Blasey Ford when she appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee for a potentially history-shaping hearing on Thursday. Sometimes I had too many. Kavanaugh rejected the allegations in a statement released by the White House. Yet the undeclared bloc of Democratic senators could be a problem for Democratic leaders, who want to put the weight of the nomination entirely on a handful of holdout Republicans.

In Wednesday's poll, 87 percent of Republicans say they approve of the job Trump is doing, up from 81 percent earlier this month.

Bill Cosby sentenced to three to 10 years in prison
She said she first met Cosby in 2002, when she served as director of operations for Temple University's women's basketball team. After his sentence was handed to him, Bill was quickly escorted out of the courtroom with handcuffs around his wrists.

"I remember her saying that her attacker's name was Brett Kavanaugh, that he was a successful lawyer who had grown up in Christine's home town, and that he was well-known in the Washington D.C. community", Russell Ford said.

Americans are divided over whether they believe Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh or his accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

"They go into the back room and talk to each other and laugh at what they're getting away with", Trump said.

"I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter", Kavanaugh said during a Fox News interview on Monday.

The affidavit said she has clearances to work with multiple federal agencies, including the Treasury Department.

Russian plane downing in Syria will harm relations with Israel
Russian Federation in April had hinted that it would supply the S-300 to Assad's regime despite Israeli objections. Earlier, the Russian MoD presented a minute-by-minute timeline of the Il-20 downing.

Meanwhile, the Republicans were still assessing what Kavanaugh's Monday interview on the Fox News Channel - an unusual appearance for a Supreme Court nominee - indicates about how he would do in Thursday's hearing. His nomination and the claims of sexual misconduct have stirred up women and liberal voters whose antipathy to Republicans has already been heightened by Trump's policies and his own fraught history of alleged sexual transgressions.
