Kavanaugh sexual assault claims a 'hoax'

Protests against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday led to 171 arrests at the U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court, authorities said Sunday.

In September she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation in a hearing that captured national attention.

Collins says while she believes Ford was assaulted, "I don't know by whom, and I'm not certain when".

The "hoax" remark is the furthest the president has gone in trying to discredit Ford and other accusers.

Donald Trump has claimed sexual assault allegations against his newest Supreme Court Justice were a "hoax".

"A country that doesn't take care of its women and take care of its children in our schools is not a country we can fight for", he said.

"I will say, this has been terrifying", Katz told NBC's Kasie Hunt during an interview alongside fellow Ford attorney Lisa Banks.

If you have a Senate of a different party than the president, "you don't fill a vacancy created in the presidential year", McConnell said.

Kavanaugh won confirmation on a 50-48 vote on nearly a party-line vote, with almost all Republicans supporting him and all but one Democrat opposing him. Kavanaugh, formerly a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Washington, D.C. circuit, is a well-qualified jurist who clerked for retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, they argue.

"We have a lot of women that are extremely happy - a tremendous number - because they're thinking of their sons, they're thinking of their husbands and their brothers and their uncles and others and women are, I think, extremely happy", he said.

Nadler called the FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh - which only lasted a week and was limited in scope - a "whitewash" investigation, according to the New York Times.

Both Republicans and Democrats are looking to harness the anger generated by Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court ahead of the midterm elections.

The pair shared a hug on the Senate floor following the climactic vote.

He thanked the Republican senators for supporting Kavanaugh and not backing down amid the numerous accusations against him.

"The way they (Democrats) behaved was absolutely atrocious.the way they conducted themselves, the way they dealt with a high-level, brilliant, going to be a great justice of the Supreme Court, the way they really tortured him and his family.it was a disgrace.it was one of the most disgraceful performances I have ever seen", the President said. "He's going to be a great Supreme Court justice".

"Putting strict constructionists, relatively young, on the courts for lifetime appointments is the best way to have a long-term positive impact on America", McConnell said, "And today is a seminal moment in that effort".

Addressing Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh that he sexually assaulted her, Melania Trump said: "I'm glad that Dr. Ford was heard".

The first Democratic presidential debate is just months away, Politico reported Monday, and potential candidates are already vying for one of the primetime spots on the debate stage.
