Brett Kavanaugh: Second woman accuses US Supreme Court nominee of sexual misconduct

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh gestures over his notes as he testifies on the third day of his Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing Thursday Sept. 6 2018 on Capitol Hill in Washington to replace retire

The New Yorker was unable to confirm with eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was at the party Ramirez described, though one classmate who was not at the party said that he is "one-hundred-per-cent sure" he was told Kavanaugh had exposed himself to Ramirez.

Trump went on: "There's a chance that this could be one of the single-most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything but I am with Judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote". "I am with him all the way".

On Sunday, The New Yorker published a report detailing accusations from a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, who claims Kavanaugh thrust his penis in her face during a drunken dormitory party when they were undergraduates at Yale University. "I'm just being honest: Unless there's something more, no, I'm not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this".

In a statement, the White House claimed that neither Kavanaugh nor anyone within the administration shared the accuser's name with Whelan. The White House, which called Ramirez's allegation "the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats", reportedly does not plan to withdraw Kavanaugh's nomination.

According to the New Yorker, Ramirez studied sociology and psychology at Yale and attended a dorm party in Lawrence Hall where Kavanaugh was also present.

Kavanaugh, 53, an appellate court judge, has denied Ford's allegation and said he wanted to testify as soon as possible to clear his name.

Ford alleges that Kavanaugh assaulted her during a housing party in high school in the 1980s.

Democratic staffers on the Judiciary Committee who did not work for Feinstein contacted Bennet's office asking for a connection for Ramirez should she decide to come forward with allegations about Kavanaugh, the spokesperson said.

The White House is casting doubt on the willingness of a college professor to speak publicly about her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, called Sunday night for the "immediate postponement" of any further action on Kavanaugh's nomination. Moreover, another witness, a lifelong friend of Ford's, not only can not remember the house party, she says she has never met Kavanaugh.

"As with any witness who comes before the Senate, the Senate Judiciary Committee can not hand over its constitutional duties to attorneys for outside witnesses", Mike Davis, Senator Grassley's top nominations counsel, wrote in an email exchange with Ms Ford's lawyers obtained by the Associated Press.

The new information came hours after the Senate committee agreed to a date and time for a hearing after almost a week of uncertainty over whether Ford would appear to tell her story.

Grassley said he'd schedule a hearing for Wednesday, not Thursday, as Ford prefers.

Attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee she would be willing to appear next week. They noted that other witnesses are "essential for a fair hearing". Christine Blasey Ford identified herself last Sunday as the woman who sent a confidential letter in late July to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Sen. The committee's 11 Republicans - all men - have been seeking an outside female attorney to interrogate Ford, mindful of the election-season impression that could be left by men trying to pick apart a woman's assertion of a sexual attack. "Which means, if that's the new standard, no man will ever qualify for the Supreme Court again".
