Sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to question Brett Kavanaugh, Christine Blasey Ford

Deborah Ramirez “I remember a penis being in front of my face”

The allegations, dating back to the 1980s, have put in jeopardy Kavanaugh's chances of winning confirmation to the top USA court in a Senate narrowly controlled by Trump's party, with high-stakes congressional elections just weeks away.

The new allegation, reported Sunday by The New Yorker magazine, prompted the Senate Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein of California, to call for a postponement of Thursday's highly anticipated hearing where Kavanaugh and Ford are to testify. He declined to provide the attorney's name. Murkowski told reporters: "We have kind of moved beyond the qualifications of the nominee, and it has become more about whether or not women who have been subject to any form of assault, violence, intimidation are to (be) believed. I would be very concerned about doing that, but it wouldn't surprise me if she would agree to do that", Clune said.

"Politics always follows culture", Thomas said.

Ford accused Kavanaugh of covering her mouth and trying to remove her clothing at a party in the early 1980s, when both were in high school. "Neither Dr. Blasey Ford nor Judge Kavanaugh is on trial". "The whole point is to create an environment where it's what Dr. Ford has asked for, to be professional and to not be a circus". "Whatever they decide is fine with me", Corker said. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican. They joined Ford's lawyers in charging that by hiring a sex crimes prosecutor, Republicans were out to intimidate Ford at Thursday's hearing. A split-second facial expression, a tear or a choice of words by either witness could prove decisive. And on Monday evening, having been relatively restrained about the women alleging wrongdoing by Kavanaugh, he tweeted his harshest assessment yet of them yet: "The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!"

Sen. Susan Collins of ME, one of the undecided Republicans, said she will be "glued to the television" during the hearing. GOP senators promised fairness to Ford, who Sen.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said Ramirez's accusations seem "pretty thinly sourced". He said he did not remember being at a party with her.

"The second accuser doesn't even know, she thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not", Mr Trump said during a United Nations meeting on Tuesday. "She doesn't know it was him but it might have been him and 'Oh gee let's not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that.' This is a con game being played by the Democrats".

"There's a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate, but I am with Judge Kavanaugh", Trump said.

"This is a high-quality person, and it would be a frightful insult to our country if this doesn't happen", he said. Clune is among those asking that the FBI open a new investigation into the sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh.

Wilkinson said: "They announced that there were notes and that there had been a lie detector test" but that those materials were not turned over "even though they were requested". "Women are paying attention".

Kavanaugh has denied any sexual improprieties in his past, and in an interview on Fox News on Monday he asserted that he had been a virgin into his 20s. He's denied those allegations. "I've never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said in the interview, sitting alongside his wife.

After the interview aired, the sense in the West Wing was relief that Kavanaugh was able to present an image to counter the allegations.
