Trump says Kavanaugh allegations ‘political’

  • NYT Kavanaugh has calendars from 1982 that could negate assault allegations

Judge, who Ford has said was in the room when she was allegedly assaulted by Kavanaugh, had indicated he did not want to testify because he had nothing to add beyond his denial of any knowledge of the purported episode.

The judge has denied both claims, labelling the latest "a smear".

The committee said it would not negotiate on other points, though, including Ms Ford's desire for additional witnesses and a request to testify after, not before, Mr Kavanaugh. "She spoke softly. It was wrenching for her, I think, to tell the story because there's a re-experience when the story is told", Eshoo said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. She recalled remarking, "That's not a real penis", and the other students laughing at her confusion and taunting her, one encouraging her to "kiss it".

Trump, at the United Nations in NY, declared that Kavanaugh is "outstanding", and added, "I am with him all the way".

Originally the White House had hoped to pick up votes from a few Democratic senators running for re-election in states Trump won in 2016. Kavanaugh also is set to appear at the hearing.

She says they were both taking part in a drinking game at a dormitory party where people sat in a circle and selected others to drink. Kavanaugh denies the accusation.

The new accusation landed late Sunday hours after negotiators reached an agreement to hold a public hearing Thursday for Kavanaugh and his first accuser, California college professor Christine Blasey (BLAH'-zee) Ford, who says he sexually assaulted her at a party decades ago.

At issue is Ford's accusation stemming from an incident she says took place when she and Kavanaugh were teenagers.

Ford's lawyer Debra Katz said in response to Keyser's attorney's statement that it makes sense that Keyser wouldn't remember, because Ford has said she did not share her allegations "publicly or with anyone for years".

At stake is not only the fate of Trump's hand-picked Supreme Court nominee, but also Republican chances in November's midterm elections that face increased risk if the polarizing confirmation battle drags on. "For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and never mentioned it, all of a sudden it happens", the president complained.

The president declined to say if he might fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after a New York Times article said he'd suggested recording Trump and talked of invoking the 25th Amendment to move him from office.

And yet, in a unusual and unprecedented move, Klopp replaced the Swiss - who was making his full debut - for James Milner at half-time.

Kavanaugh, who strongly denies the assault allegation, has said he wishes to testify as soon as possible to clear his name from Ford's claims that he attacked her at a high school party in the 1980s.

Today, Deborah Ramirez came forward with serious allegations of sexual misconduct by Judge Kavanaugh.

The new allegations have prompted a key senator to call for "an immediate postponement" of any further proceedings by the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is considering Kavanaugh's nomination.

Ramirez also acknowledged gaps in her memory.

Kavanaugh has called Ford's allegation "completely false" and said in a statement provided by the White House on Sunday night the incident described by Ramirez "did not happen". Taylor Foy, a Judiciary spokesman, complained that Democrats "actively withheld information" from the Republicans.

Before Mr Kavanaugh can take up the vacant seat, he has to be approved by the 21-strong Senate Judiciary Committee and then the whole Senate.
