Trump sticks with Kavanaugh, calls sexual assault allegations "totally political"

Brett Kavanaugh,Kavanaugh,US Supreme Court

MARTIN: Although, as you noted, Senator Feinstein and other Democrats including yourself have asked for this investigation before. About 200 people gathered in front of the Supreme Court building, chanting, "I believe Christine Ford".

The Senate Judiciary Committee has released the letter which can be read in full here.

Trump, speaking to reporters on his way into the United Nations on Monday morning, said Kavanaugh "is an outstanding person, and I am with him all the way".

"He is a fine man with an unblemished past and these are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers", Trump said in comments broadcast on CNN.

Conway said, "I don't think one man's shoulders should bear decades of the #MeToo movement" that has toppled powerful men across industries over the a year ago.

Kavanaugh accuser Ford agrees to testify...

The opposition Democrats described Ford's decision as courageous.

Meanwhile, Brett Kavanaugh now says that he has calendars from high school that show he never was at "that" party.

The above is an email that Keyser's attorney, Howard Walsh, sent to the Judiciary Committee. According to public reports, she has only ever donated to Democrats.

Mourinho confirms Dalot will not feature against Wolves
United have eased talk of a crisis around Old Trafford with back-to-back Premier League victories over Burnley and Watford. Mourinho bristled at a suggestion that senior players had let him down, happily spreading the blame far and wide.

Ford's attorneys say that several requests they have made of the committee have been refused, such as calling additional witnesses who Ford remembers being at the party, and having the FBI investigate her story.

Earlier this evening The New Yorker published a story written by Ronan Farrow and Jane Meyer proving that theory correct. Ramirez recalled that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away, the magazine reported. Christine Blasey Ford says Kavanaugh held her down, covered her mouth and tried to remove her clothes during a party when they were in high school.

The New Yorker added that it "has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party". Ramirez didn't come to The New Yorker, Mayer said, but rather "the classmates at Yale were talking to each other about it, they were emailing about it. and eventually word of it spread".

The only so-called corroboration comes from an anonymous source who claims to have heard the story second hand.

One of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party. "I don't think it was just 'Brett.' And I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there". Feinstein asked that Ford write her allegations in the letter.

A White House official not authorized to speak publicly questioned the accusations coming from Avenatti's client, saying that the presence of the high-profile attorney - who has publicly taken on Trump and is weighing a 2020 Democratic presidential bid - makes the proceedings a "circus". Ramirez says she and Kavanaugh were sitting in a small group of students playing a drinking game at the campus' Lawrance Hall. Kavanaugh denies the claim. She also accused Kavanaugh of laughing at her in the aftermath and has said the FBI should investigate the incident. We shared intimate details of our lives. Rasor stressed that "under normal circumstances, I wouldn't reveal information that was told in confidence", but, she said, "I can't stand by and watch him lie".

Kavanaugh has produced numerous statements of support regarding his behavior towards women both during his youth and soaring career.

Mr Kavanaugh denied the incident occurred, calling it "a smear, plain and simple".
