Trump pokes holes in Kavanaugh sexual misconduct accusation

A lawyer for the second woman who publicly accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct said Tuesday night that the FBI must investigate the accusations of his client, Deborah Ramirez.

Ramirez offered her account of sexual assault to the New Yorker magazine.

The New Yorker said Ramirez had hesitated to speak publicly, partly because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged episode and there were "gaps" in her memory.

If Kavanaugh's nomination is approved by the committee, it would be brought to the Senate floor, where a vote in the full chamber would determine if he secures a position on the Supreme Court following accusations of inappropriate sexual conduct and a contentious review of his judicial philosophy and career.

Trump added that Democrats were inept at everything except for obstructing Republicans' work and leveling false allegations at them, and expressed concern that the Kavanaugh saga might dissuade people from pursuing careers in public service. Go ahead and ruin this guy's life based on an accusation - I don't know when it happened, I don't know where it happened and everybody named in regard to being there, said it didn't happen.

Ford, a California college professor, alleges that Kavanaugh pinned her down and tried to remove her clothes at a party three decades ago.

In a July letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, Blasey Ford recounted how she was allegedly sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh while a teenager.

Ashley Kavanaugh said during the interview that the allegations have been hard on her and the couple's two daughters. He said he considered both of Kavanaugh's accusers to be politically motivated.

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. The goal should be to develop the relevant facts, not try a case, ' he added. Sources exaggerate their résumés, underplay things that make them look bad, make mistakes about what happened or simply outright lie.

The Post reported Sunday that Keyser said in a brief interview at her home that she still believes Ford, even if she doesn't remember the party. What could a Republican ever ask a woman, or say about a woman, who says she has survived a sexual assault that would be insensitive?

The Kavanaugh controversy is unfolding just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Republicans, against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault.

Republicans have hired a female attorney to handle questioning during this week's hearing with Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "But they know Brett and they know the truth".

With his wife at his side, Kavanaugh went on television Tuesday to defend himself, an unprecedented move by a Supreme Court nominee. So you're saying that because she was drunk it was her fault?

Kavanaugh was a "notably heavy drinker" in school who "became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk", Roche said.

During the interview, Kavanaugh denied sexually assaulting anyone.

Kavanaugh chose Fox News for his only interview - so far - to refute the allegations. At the same time, she noted that Kavanaugh has been "unequivocal in his denial" of sexual assault allegations.
