Kavanaugh drama: New accusations and a support letter from classmates

Ginsburg We thought 'boys will be boys'

The author of the letter said her daughter's friend was "shoved" against a wall "very aggressively and sexually" by Kavanaugh after they left a bar under the influence of alcohol.

On his message for young men, Mr Trump said: "It's a very unsafe period in our country, and it's being perpetrated by some very evil people".

Another similarly anonymous accuser alleged Kavanaugh and his school friend Mark Judge sexually assaulted a woman on a boat in Newport, Rhode Island, and were later beaten up for it.

"I'm going to be watching", he said.

Trump chose Kavanaugh, a conservative appeals court judge, for the court in July, after the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Earlier in the day, she said she attended more than 10 house parties in the Washington area from 1981 to 1983 where Kavanaugh was present.

"It's not to say that there can not be a situation where a person has risen above these kinds of behavior or teenage behavior", Hill told NPR, "but is to say that what we have is a person speaking the privilege of representing the laws of this country, and when that individual is reasonably believed to have broken those laws - and then not been truthful about it - to me, that's a disqualification". Judge was a high school classmate of Kavanaugh. "I know it's hard".

Ford and Kavanaugh are to testify Thursday about her allegations that Kavanaugh held her down, tried to remove her clothes and covered her mouth at a drunken high school party in the 1980s.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, said in her opening statement that sexual violence is a serious problem in the United States "and one that goes largely unseen".

Trump gets firsthand look at Hurricane Florence distress
Officials announced the end of a curfew and the resumption of regular trash pickup. "They didn't clean the ditches", she said. The risk of environmental damage from Florence mounted, too, as human and animal waste was washed into the floodwaters.

Mr Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge who has always been eyed for the Supreme Court, has repeatedly denied all the allegations, saying he had never heard of the latest accuser and calling her accusations "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations, saying he never assaulted anyone and was not at the party Ford mentions. "But I have never done that to her or to anyone". This is just completely made up, or at least not me.

A committee vote on the nomination was expected on Friday, with a final Senate vote on Tuesday.

Supreme Court appointments must be confirmed by the Senate, and Mr Trump's fellow Republicans control the chamber by a narrow 51-49 margin.

Attorney Avenatti tweeted a sworn testimony from the third accuser Swetnick.

Christine Blasey Ford, the university professor accusing Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has told senators she was "terrified" to testify but felt it was her "civic duty" to do so.

The Republican president has fiercely defended his pick as a "great intellect" - but said Wednesday he would watch the highly charged hearing and was open to changing his mind.

Democrats on the 21-member committee praised Blasey Ford's courage in coming forward while a sex crimes prosecutor hired by the Republican side sought to gently poke holes in her story with questions about dates.
