Trump aide says sex claim against Brett Kavanaugh should be heard

Trump aide says sex claim against Brett Kavanaugh should be heard

As President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh appears to be losing the support of the many women who previously signed a letter attesting to his integrity, Kavanaugh's alleged sexual assault victim, Christine Blasey Ford, has receive a signed letter of endorsement herself. Mark Judge, who was reported that day to have been Kavanaugh's friend in the room, denied the allegations in an interview with the conservative Weekly Standard.

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I've ever known" Trump told reporters at the White House Monday.

"He said this did not happen and he's naturally very upset about it", Hatch said. She said she interacted with Kavanaugh hundreds of times while they were students in a close-knit constellation of single-sex Catholic schools around Washington in the 1980s.

"I think that my constituent all along had a tug of war going on inside of her, understanding what privacy brought to her, but also the risks of moving over into the public square", Eshoo said. "Never had even a little blemish on his record", Trump said. "I think that's going to [tick] off an terrible lot of people, including women, who are more prone to vote in this day and age than men are". Or maybe Ford is lying and he is being unjustly charged and wants to right his name.

"I wish the Democrats could have done this a lot sooner, because they had this information for many months". "If somebody can be brought down by accusations like this, then you, me, every man certainly should be anxious".

"It depends on the process", the president said. "But when you look at each individual state and see how strong these candidates are - and I'll tell you, the number one issue in America, whether you're in a blue state, purple state, or red state is health care". I want him to go in at the absolute highest level. "Because once you go public you are subjected to a great deal".

"If it takes a little delay, it'll take a little delay", Trump said of the confirmation process.

Tom Arnold and Mark Burnett: What Happened and Why
Arnold responded to Downey accusing her of lying about the incident. "I'm filing police report and suing you for defamation". "I'm waiting for LAPD ", Arnold tweeted last night , soon after the incident took place.

The GOP-controlled Judiciary Committee has previously scheduled a Thursday vote on whether to recommend approval of Kavanaugh's nomination in the full Senate. On Monday, his spokesman, Bill Russo, said Biden "believes Professor Ford deserves a fair and respectful hearing of her allegations, and that the Committee should undertake a thorough and non-partisan effort to get to the truth, wherever it leads".

On July 30, Ford wrote a letter to Feinstein accusing Kavanaugh of the assault.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he was open to hearing from Ford, while resisting calls to delay the vote.

Chuck Grassley, staffers conducted a phone call with Kavanaugh late Monday afternoon, while Democrats refused to take part.

Hatch, the Senate president pro tempore and third in the presidential line of succession behind Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, told CNN that Kavanaugh was "upset" about the allegation and described him as "a very strong, decent man".

Democrats and some Republican senators have expressed concern over Ford's private-turned-public accusation that a drunken Kavanaugh groped her and tried to take off her clothes at a party when both were teenagers at high schools in suburban Maryland. "I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone". By the time he testified in a second round of hearings, following Hill, he said, "From my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I'm concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas".

Kavanaugh also said that he is willing to defend himself in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee "in any way the Committee deems appropriate".
