Time's Up calls for walkout in solidarity for Ford vs. Kavanaugh

College classmate claims Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at party

Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley, during an interview with Fox News. He added, "I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter".

In the interview, Rivera asked Trump whether Kavanaugh should still be confirmed if people come to believe the allegations made by Ford. "Innocent until proven guilty is how we do this in America".

Kavanaugh has forcefully denied allegations that he sexually assaulting a girl in high school and exposed himself to a female classmate in college, calling two women's claims "smears, pure and simple" and "grotesque and obvious character assassination" in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday.

In the second allegation, Deborah Ramirez told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party at Yale in the 1983-84 school year.

On Sunday, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the judiciary committee, urged the panel to halt proceedings in light of the latest allegation. "The arrangements made to re-open and continue the confirmation hearing on Thursday will allow you to testify and also will allow the nominee to address the allegations made against him". On Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham admitted that he planned to vote for Kavanaugh regardless of what Ford said in her testimony.

Mr Trump said Judge Kavanaugh's accusers had come "out of the woodwork" to make unfair and unsubstantiated allegations.

President Donald Trump is pledging his support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the sexual misconduct allegations against his choice are "totally political". "Neither Dr. Blasey Ford nor Judge Kavanaugh is on trial". "I also ask that the newest allegations of sexual misconduct be referred to the FBI for investigation, and that you join our request for the White House to direct the FBI to investigate the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford as well as these new claims".

Kavanaugh said he wasn't questioning "that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place, but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

The judiciary committee that needs to approve Kavanaugh's confirmation has a narrow 11-10 Republican majority, but Sen. In one deeply personal exchange with MacCallum, Kavanaugh said that he was sexually inexperienced as a teenager. "But I think she's sincerely wrong".

In the September 22 letter, obtained by CNN, Ford said her decision to first report the alleged assault to her congresswoman, California Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo, "was a very hard one, but I felt that this was something that a citizen couldn't NOT do". She was told right after, and independently of Ramirez, not someone who was in touch with her, recounted exactly the same fact pattern, down to small details. "This is a very dynamic situation".

"No innuendo has been too low, no insinuation too dirty", Senator Hatch said, adding the committee should proceed with its hearing on Thursday and "then we should vote".

Trump, at the United Nations in NY, declared that Kavanaugh is "outstanding", and added, "I am with him all the way". Trump's team discussed the latest allegation with the President over the course of the day Sunday before the story was published, another White House official said. Both Kavanaugh and Ford are set to testify before the committee on Thursday. For the good of the court and the good of the country, Judge Kavanaugh must withdraw his nomination.

With increasing intensity, Republicans have attacked the credibility of Ford's and now Ramirez' accounts.

"This is starting to feel like a vast left-wing conspiracy", White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday on "CBS This Morning" as part of a coordinated effort to play down the accusations. Chairman Les Moonves, according to a person on the call. CNN reported on the outreach to Keyser and her lawyer's response on Saturday.

Defections among Republicans would likely block his path to the Supreme Court.

The allegations stand to derail a nomination that Republicans see as crucial to gaining conservative control of the high court for years.
