Senate panel receives new Kavanaugh allegations

Trump attacks Democrats on Twitter over Kavanaugh erroneously writes that they’re making ‘False Acquisitions

Both Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify before the committee on Thursday. "I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking", she said in the statement.

Ramirez told her story in a piece published in the New Yorker over the weekend.

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". But three people she has named as witnesses have declared that they were not at any such party, including a lifelong friend, Leyland Kaiser. He detailed the dates and places of at least five parties over that summer and also noted a number of beach trips with friends and other hangouts. Ford's name is not mentioned.

In a letter to Sen. Senator Chuck Grassley, who chairs the committee, said on Wednesday the hearing will go forward as planned.

The announcement Tuesday that a vote was being scheduled set off an array of criticism by Democrats. Sen.

On Tuesday, President Trump told reporters on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meeting that Democrats are playing a "con game" with the Kavanaugh confirmation process, recognizing he is qualified but throwing up uncorroborated claims at the last minute in the hope he can defeated. They note that neither the accusers nor news organizations have found people willing to provide corroboration, even though both women have named people who they said were present at the alleged incidents. He said rejecting Kavanaugh would be "a disgusting insult" and "a very unsafe game" for the U.S. He also chastised his colleagues for politicizing the issue before hearing Ford and Kavanaugh testify. By itself, it doesn't mean they are being untruthful.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) calling an experienced prosecutor a "female assistant" probably isn't doing his party any favors to prove Republicans know how to respect women. "If Grassley waits long enough, the Democrats will come up with the woman claiming to be Kavanaugh's secret Russian wife - he's a bigamist, too, don't you know - and Trump paid Kavanaugh's second wife to hire a bunch of prostitutes to urinate on the bed Obama slept in while in Moscow".

She added: "It's clear to me that Republicans don't want this to be a fair process".

Anti-Kavanaugh Lawyer Claims Hearing Would Impede 'The Truth'
Ford, and afford her the right to be heard , Feinstein chose to sit on the letter until after Judge Kavanaugh's hearings. In his letter on Monday, Kavanaugh said of the allegations against him: "These are smears , pure and simple".

The result of Friday's vote will decide whether the nominee will receive positive recommendations in the following senate floor vote.

Earlier Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee released copies of the calendar full of hand-written notes from May, June, July and August of 1982. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation.

US President Donald Trump is seen during a bilateral meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron (off frame) in NY on September 24, 2018, a day before the start of the General Debate of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly.

While discussing the sexual assault case of Stanford University student Brock Turner, Keith Koegler wrote in his declaration that Ford "expressed anger at Mr. Turner's lenient sentence, stating that she was particularly bothered by it because she was assaulted in high school by a man who was now a federal judge in Washington, D.C".

Judge Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

Kavanaugh said in an interview earlier this week with Fox News that he went to an all-boys Catholic high school where he focused on academics, and athletics.

Clune said an FBI investigation would be "the only intelligent way to get to the truth of what happened" between Ramirez and Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh, who has strongly denied the charge, will separately appear at the hearing.
