Trump sarcastically said, "Oh, gee, let's not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that" in dismissing the notion the allegations should derail Kavanaugh's appointment.

Protesters carrying signs and chanting slogans filled hallways outside the offices of Sen. If she and another Republican oppose Kavanaugh, his nomination could fail. She says the allegations are disappointing but not surprising. After his public hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, several women have accused him of sexual assault when he was a teenager in the Maryland suburbs outside Washington, D.C., which Kavanaugh denied.

"This would be 100% contrary to the character of the man I know and a powerful punch in the gut", Rivera, an attorney in Houston and a political independent, wrote in an email, calling Kavanaugh "honorable" and "respectful".

"I wish there were a way to know for sure", Rivera said.

Helen Rice, who described herself as a liberal Democrat, said Kavanaugh was "never anything but polite and respectful" as a friend, despite their political differences. "To be in the hub of all of this is awe-inspiring and simultaneously petrifying because of the stakes".

So as an illegitimate administration goes to work attacking the credibility of a fearless woman recounting her assault, let's recognize the enormously cynical hypocrisy: The nominee they're desperate to protect is a calculated liar who uses dishonesty to advance his own career.

The accusations surfaced in a story in The New Yorker on Sunday.

Roche, who declined media interviews, said he he did not witness the 1983 act in question: When Debbie Ramiez said Kavanaugh was standing next to her, laughing, pulling up his trousers, after putting his penis in her face, the New Yorker reported on Sunday.

In remarks to the media after the event, King said the Federal Bureau of Investigation should be given time to investigate the multiple accusations against Kavanaugh.
