Brett Kavanaugh’s Fox Interview On The Assault Allegations Got Unexpectedly Personal

Brett Kavanaugh’s Fox Interview On The Assault Allegations Got Unexpectedly Personal

"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man", White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said.

In a statement provided by the White House, Kavanaugh denies the event ever happened.

Still, McConnell said that Ford, the first woman to come forward with accusations against Kavanaugh dating to their time in high school in suburban Washington, would be testifying at the Judiciary Committee as scheduled on Thursday.

"As you know, the letter was given to me in confidence and I am giving it to you with the expectation that you will maintain its confidentiality and that it will not be released publicly or disseminated further, as requested by Dr. Blasey Ford's counsel Debra Katz", Feinstein wrote in the cover letter.

Also jumping into the fray was the attorney who represents porn actress Stormy Daniels in her legal fight with Trump. In the case of Christine Blasey Ford's accusation that a drunken 17-year-old Kavanaugh pulled her into a bedroom at a high school party with another teenager and groped her, however, the use of one has proved a major bone of contention.

Even before the latest turns, the carefully negotiated hearing at the Senate Judiciary Committee with Kavanaugh and Ford carried echoes of the Anita Hill hearings in 1991.

Trump has questioned Ford's account, tweeting Friday that "if the attack.was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed" with police. Meanwhile, Republicans were pressing for a swift hearing and a vote.

In his letter on Monday, Kavanaugh said of the allegations against him: "These are smears, pure and simple".

A handful of senators in both parties remain undecided on Kavanaugh's nomination.

"The committee determines which witnesses to call, how many witnesses to call, in what order to call them, and who will question them". Fellow Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas echoed Graham, saying it was time to "end the character assassination" against Kavanaugh.

The 11 senators on the GOP side of the dais are all men, which could send an unwanted message on live television against the backdrop of the #MeToo era. The New Yorker story, however, said senior Republican staffers were informed last week.

Democratic senators are expected to ask their own questions.

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

The shocking allegations made by Deborah Ramirez against Brett Kavanaugh fell apart in record time, but that hasn't stopped Democrats from seizing on these new allegations to. you guessed it, call for a delay.

Senate Democrats also found out last week, and at least two of the four who knew reportedly started investigating the allegation to assess its credibility.

"Yet again, Senate Democrats actively withheld information from the rest of the Committee only to drop information at politically opportune moments", the statement said. "I chose to do it because it is necessary when we think about justice". "I hope she comes".

"He is a fine man with an unblemished past and these are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers", Trump said.
