President Trump: Sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh 'totally political'

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington for the third day of his confirmation hearing to replace retired Ju

The New Yorker magazine reported late Sunday that two USA senators are investigating a woman's charge that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a Yale University dormitory party during the 1983-1984 academic year.

Durbin told ABC's "This Week" that some Republicans "reached out to Democratic senators and assured them that they are looking to this as kind of a determination as to how their final vote" on Kavanaugh is cast.

Kavanaugh, 53, has been the subject of mounting sexual misconduct allegations in recent weeks.

"This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen".

Trump, at the United Nations in NY, declared that Kavanaugh is "outstanding", and added, "I am with him all the way".

"This is a smear, plain and simple", Kavanaugh said. The two incidents are alleged to have occurred within just a few years of one another.

Kavanaugh accuser Ford agrees to testify... Chuck Grassley, and asked that the new allegation be referred to the FBI for investigation. She added that the second woman, who alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at Yale, is welcome to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Her lawyers issued a statement on Sunday saying: "Despite actual threats to her safety and her life, Dr Ford believes it is important for senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her". He said Kavanaugh was "under assault by radical left wing politicians" and suggested Ford should have filed charges as a 15-year-old when she was attacked.

The magazine says Ramirez remembers that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. "Neither she nor her legal representative have contacted the chairman's office".

Republicans, with a 51-49 Senate majority, can confirm Kavanaugh if they stay united.

In his speech, McConnell referenced the reluctance of the New York Times - a frequent punching bag for President Trump and conservative lawmakers - to print Ramirez's allegations.

But she did not make the details public as Kavanaugh's hearings progressed, and leaks of the allegations caught even other Democrats off guard. He was not actually at the party, but "independently recalled" numerous same details Ramirez provided, per The New Yorker.

On Friday, Mr Grassley had rejected concessions Ms Ford wanted if she is tell her story publicly before the committee.

"I would think an FBI investigation would be warranted", she told The New Yorker.

Christine Blasey Ford to testify against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh
Ford, compare it to everything in the record and make a decision", he won't vote against Kavanaugh based on Ford's testimony. It was unclear whether Grassley would permit more negotiations Saturday, with patience among Republicans is running thin.

Rep. Paul Gosar's own siblings endorse Democratic opponent in scathing ad
In a series of videos, the siblings criticize Gosar's hardline stance on immigration, his support for U.S. Next is a statement from " David , lawyer", saying "Paul's absolutely not working for his district".

Ford's lawyers said it was still unclear as of Sunday who will ask questions, as Republicans were trying to hire an outside female counsel for the role.

President Donald Trump has accused Feinstein and the Democrats of "very purposefully" waiting to release the allegations in order to jeopardize Kavanaugh's nomination. Kennedy was the frequently the court's swing vote.

The tentative accord could bring to a close days of high-stakes brinkmanship that have roiled Washington ahead of midterm elections and threated to jeopardize Kavanaugh's confirmation to the court.

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

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec told Fox News: "This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man". Ford claims Kavanaugh attempted to remove her clothing, and covered her mouth so she could not scream, during a party at Georgetown Prep.

"There's a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate but I am with Judge Kavanaugh", Trump said in NY.

He added, "I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process".

After the new allegations surfaced, Democrats called for a delay in Thursday's hearing. "It all boils down to how senators Murkowski and Collins perceive these allegations". Susan Collins of Maine.

Trump made clear he considered the allegations politically motivated.

"Enough is enough", Fallon said in a statement. In response, Brett Kavanaugh offers a phalanx of personal friends, none of whom seem willing to testify under oath in support of their buddy.

Women's March, a group that grew out of a January 2017 demonstration against Trump, was one of the organizers of the protests.

As Christine Blasey Ford's accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh lost all credibility, it was reasonable to assume there was a reason for all the stalling.

It's been a particularly traumatizing week for victims of sexual assault and harassment.
