Trump assails Boulder woman accusing Kavanaugh: ‘She admits that she was drunk’

Open this

A lawyer for the second woman who publicly accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct said Tuesday night that the FBI must investigate the accusations of his client, Deborah Ramirez.

There were no immediate indications that the emergence of a second accuser had fatally wounded Kavanaugh's prospects. "She thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not", Trump told reporters in NY.

Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, said Kavanaugh attacked her and tried to remove her clothing while he was drunk at a party when he was 17 years old and she was 15 when they were high school students in Maryland.

The New Yorker said Ramirez had hesitated to speak publicly, partly because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged episode and there were "gaps" in her memory.

Republicans hold a slim 51-49 Senate majority, meaning Kavanaugh's confirmation prospects may hinge on the votes of a handful of moderate Republican senators who have not yet announced their intentions, These include Sens. Defiant and sometimes emotional, Kavanaugh said that he "never sexually assaulted anyone", defending himself against allegations that threaten to unravel his confirmation.

"So Chairman Grassley has a job to do here, because, if he gives Democrats enough time, they'll produce a woman claiming to be Kavanaugh's secret Russian wife who Trump paid to urinate on that bed in Moscow", said Limbaugh.

Mr Kavanaugh says threats of violence against his family and "the coordinated effort to destroy my good name" will not drive him out.

The New Yorker published new allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh by his Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez. Kavanaugh *might* end up being a bit more moderate on the bench than expected, to try to placate his ardent left-wing critics.

"It's very important to take allegations of those who have come forward, to take them seriously and I think we need to go into this hearing with the view that we will listen to Dr. Ford's story, we will listen to Judge Kavanaugh's response and then we will weigh what we have heard", the Alaska Republican told a massive scrum of reporters. While discussing the Kavanaugh allegations Sunday on CNN, Haley said sexual assault accusers should not be blamed or second-guessed.

In the Fox interview Kavanaugh got a taste of the personal questions he'll face from senators.

The New Yorker said the allegation came to the attention of Democratic senators through a civil rights lawyer.

Earlier on Twitter, Clune said Ramirez wants to give a sworn statement to the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding her allegations, and said that the Senate Judiciary Committee has so far "refused to meet all scheduled appointments".

Cornyn said that the committee has worked to accommodate Flake's concerns in how they set up the questioning of Ford and Kavanaugh.

"No, I know Brett".

He also questioned the political motivations of the lawyers representing the women, saying "you should look into the lawyers doing the representation".

"We're going to ask some questions on our side, by this person, for the same amount of time as the Democrats have collectively on the other side".

In a Buzzfeed column on Tuesday, Marin, who was appointed under former President George W. Bush in 2001, detailed her own experience with sexual assault and staying silent.
