Washington, Sep 26 (PTI) In another explosive accusation, a third woman came forward on Wednesday to charge Donald Trump's supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with sexual misconduct, alleging that she was gang-raped at a party he attended in the early 1980s.
At a news conference in NY a day before Kavanaugh was set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Trump pledged to listen to the testimony of Kavanaugh's accuser and even said he was open to changing his mind about his nominee. Kavanaugh said he would do whatever the committee wanted to do, but did not directly answer whether he thought an FBI investigation was the best course. Democrats' search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist.
According to a committee aide, in an email to Avenatti on Wednesday, Republican committee staff said that "yesterday committee investigators interviewed Judge Kavanaugh again, under penalty of felony. I don't know who this is and this never happened", Kavanaugh said in a statement issued through the White House.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says the Democrats' treatment of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is the "most despicable thing" he has seen in politics. "I spoke to somebody 38 years ago, and it may not be good, '" Trump said, adding, "The people that have complained to me about it the most about what's happening is women". She told a therapist. Ford summarized her accusations against Kavanaugh in a letter Feinstein's office received on July 30.
Rachel Mitchell, counsel for Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans, questions Christine Blasey Ford as Senators Ben Sasse, R-NE, Ted Cruz, R-TX, Mike Lee, R-UT, and John Cornyn, R-TX, listen during the hearing on September 27, 2018. Judge Kavanaugh understood that he testified under penalty of felony, subject to up to 5 years of imprisonment. He unequivocally denied all of the allegations, testifying that there was not a kernel of truth in any of these allegations.
Ford said Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, was in the room during the attack and that the two were laughing at her. You had no intention of protecting Dr. Ford, none.
On July 9 after Kavanaugh had become the Supreme Court nominee, Ford said she received a call from Eshoo's office.
"Has anyone come forward to say to you, "Hey, remember, I was the one that drove you home"?"
Swetnick, who attended Gaithersburg High School in Maryland, says she attended "well over ten" parties where Kavanaugh was present.
