‘I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone’

‘I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone’

Defections among Republicans would likely block his path to the Supreme Court. "Martha MacCallum, the anchor who interviewed Kavanaugh and his wife, wrote on Twitter late Sunday, "'Sickening' was the word I heard most often this weekend to describe what is happening.

Christine Blasey Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her while they were both in high school, and Deborah Ramirez, in a story published Sunday in the New Yorker, alleges Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they were in college. Kavanaugh has staunchly denied all accusations that have come forward against him.

"I want a fair process where I can defend my integrity and I know I'm telling the truth". President Donald Trump leapt to his defense, the Senate's top Republican accused Democrats of a "smear campaign" and an emotional Kavanaugh declared, "I'm not going anywhere". While it was hard, I was able to share my information with two contacts during the period between the short list announcement and Mr. Kavanaugh's selection, ' she wrote. I know his heart. Avenatti told the AP that he will disclose his client's identity in the coming days and that she is prepared to testify before the committee, as well as provide names of corroborating witnesses.

MacCallum later asked her, as a woman, if she sympathized with "the idea that some women would suppress a memory and not be able to talk about it until many years later".

'I have received an inordinate number of requests to appear on major TV shows to elucidate further information, to which I have not responded.

'While the nationwide outpouring of love has been heartwarming, I am spending considerable time managing death threats, avoiding people following me on freeways, and disconcerting media intrusion, including swarms of vans at my home and unauthorized persons entering my classroom and medical settings where I work, ' she wrote.

Avenatti demanded to present testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee and called for Kavanaugh's nomination to be withdrawn. "This process is not right".

"I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years after". "It's clear that he believes he didn't do anything along the lines of these allegations", she said. "I'm not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone in some place, but what I know, is I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee said they would investigate Ramirez's accusation. Never did any such thing.

Back in March, he finished tied for second and tied for fifth at the Valspar and Arnold Palmer Invitational, respectively. His 80 win on the PGA Tour moves him a step closer to Sam Snead's all-time record of 82 PGA Tour victories.

Ford and Kavanaugh are scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday.

Protesters opposing Kavanaugh's confirmation held rallies in Washington, New York, Philadelphia and elsewhere.

"We hope he's going to be confirmed he's a fine, fine man, a great scholar, great at everything he's ever done, and it would be sad indeed if something happened to reroute that", Trump said.

The new allegations raised broader questions about a nominee whose confirmation seemed all but certain two weeks ago. What's going on is not something that should happen.

"Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY again called for an FBI investigation for the allegations - a step Trump and the GOP have rejected - and said on the Senate floor that McConnell "is afraid of what might come out, what the truth is". And McConnell said that Thursday's Judiciary Committee hearing would proceed and that full Senate consideration would follow "in the near future", though he mentioned no date.

"This is what the so-called resistance has become".

Kavanaugh and his Republican allies portrayed the allegations as part of a "smear campaign" by Democrats who have fought his nomination from the outset. "Aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate", he said. Please refresh for updates.
