Second woman accuses US Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault

Brett Kavanaugh Accused of Sexual Misconduct By a Second Woman - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Brett Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley took the unusual step of being interviewed by Fox News to continue to deny allegations that he assaulted Christine Blasey Ford and exposed himself to Deborah Ramirez.

Ramirez told the magazine she was on the floor, drunk at a Yale party when the alleged incident took place.

Christine Blasey Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her while they were both in high school, and Deborah Ramirez, in a story published Sunday in the New Yorker, alleges Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they were in college.

"Many years after. I'll leave it at that", Judge Kavanaugh said.

"This shameful smear campaign has hit a new low", the low-key Kentucky Republican said in unusually blunt language, accusing Senate Democrats at one point of "trying to destroy a man's personal and professional life".

MACCALLUM: Michael Avenatti says that he has significant evidence and another accuser, who claims that you and Mark Judge, at multiple house parties in the Washington D.C. area during the 1980s, would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol and drugs to allow a train of men to subsequently gang-rape them.

Republicans are up in arms about the sexual assault allegations now dogging Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and no one is more infuriated than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

"Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, just chose to lecture Democrats for their actions involving a Supreme Court nominee", said Baldwin. Since Ford detailed her story to The Washington Post, all of the people she alleged to have attended a 1982 teenage house party in Maryland have come forward to deny the allegation. Ford has accused Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her when both were in high school and at a party in the early 1980s; she came forward in an article published September 16.

With pressure mounting to put Kavanaugh's nomination on hold for the FBI to investigate his past - a day after a second woman came forward to accuse him - Trump stood firmly behind his embattled nominee, blasting the allegations as "totally political".

The judge said he was looking forward to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday against allegations that he had sexually assaulted a woman when she was a teenager. "There's a hearing on Thursday", she said.

"Yet again, Senate Democrats actively withheld information from the rest of the Committee only to drop information at politically opportune moments", Grassley said in a statement. "A quiet, serious, thorough background check (of Judge Kavanaugh) by the Federal Bureau of Investigation". "We're not going to let her determine how many people we call" and on outside counsel.

The committee also released a letter from Ford, dated last Saturday, in which she said coming forward with her charge was "something that a citizen couldn't NOT do".

Dr Ford agreed to testify on Thursday after a week-long standoff that saw her forced to leave her California home as she faced death threats and Mr Trump attacked her credibility.

"They have also refused to invite other witnesses who are essential for a fair hearing that arrives at the truth about the sexual assault", the statement from Ford's attorneys said. Brian Fallon, the executive director group Demand Justice, which was formed in part to oppose Trump's Supreme Court nominee, said Kavanaugh should remove his name from consideration.

But on Sunday, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the judiciary committee, urged the panel to halt proceedings in light of the latest allegation. He said he did not remember being at a party with her.

"No, that never happened", Kavanaugh said.

Ford's lawyers said "various senators have been dismissive of her account and should have to shoulder their responsibility to ask her questions".

Presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway told CBS that the accusations against Mr Kavanaugh sound like "a vast left-wing conspiracy", using rhetoric that echoed Hillary Clinton's 1998 description of allegations that her husband, President Bill Clinton, had had affairs.
