New allegations against Kavanaugh submitted to Senate committee

April FrancisSep 28, 2018

The US President has also a few times asserted the allegations are false.

During the free-wheeling news conference, Trump continued to lash out at Democrats and label the allegations against Kavanaugh politically motivated.

Both Kavanaugh and Ford are expected to be questioned by senators on the committee and a career prosecutor enlisted by the Republican majority. She did not, however, name him as one of her alleged attackers that night. She initially told her husband about it when they were renovating her house, and she begged for a second front door.

Rachel Mitchell, who's doing the questioning for the Republicans, is speaking smoothly, but meticulously as she asks Blasey Ford about the minute details of her account.

And on Wednesday a new woman came forward with explosive allegations, saying she witnessed sexually abusive behaviour by Kavanaugh when he was a teenager and claiming she was gang-raped at a party he attended in the early 1980s.

In prepared testimony to the Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh called allegations against him by the initial accuser, Ford, as "last-minute smears" and "grotesque and obvious character assassination".

Fresh sex assault claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has surfaced, as Democrats demand delaying his hearing in the Senate. I never met them. "I have never done that to her or to anyone".

He says that both "they and their families have received vile threats" which are "unacceptable and a poor reflection on the state of civility in our democracy".

"I look forward to what she has to say", Trump said. I tried to yell for help.

The Fly Delta app is also now functional. "We apologize for the difficulties you have experienced", Delta said in a tweet . The Atlanta-based airline said there had been no disruption or safety issue with any of its flights in the air.

"I feel for her because I know how terrifying this is and how nervous she's been and how it has impacted her life". He did not say that Kavanaugh's female accusers were lying. My intention was to be helpful.

"It's not to say that there can not be a situation where a person has risen above these kinds of behavior or teenage behavior", Hill told NPR, "but is to say that what we have is a person speaking the privilege of representing the laws of this country, and when that individual is reasonably believed to have broken those laws - and then not been truthful about it - to me, that's a disqualification".

As I told this Committee the last time I appeared before you, a federal judge must be independent, not swayed by public or political pressure.

The nominee has vehemently denied all of the allegations ahead of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing coming up on Thursday where one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, will also testify to senators. She was accompanied by "at least" 15 friends, according to reporters in the room, including friends who traveled to DC from California for moral support.

"Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter", Ford explained of her memory from the encounter. She said at the beginning of her testimony, when asked if she would need a break after her opening remarks, that she might need some coffee. And, did you make up any part of your statement? She has been careful in answering the questions, and has even corrected herself midway through testifying.

Two other women have come forward with allegations. Hanafin said that the probability of deception was less than.02 percent.

'This is not a trial of Dr. Ford. Her statement reiterates her sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh: "I was pushed into a bedroom and was locked in the room and rush onto a bed", she wrote.

"Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes", her statement said. "He began running his hands over my body and grinding his hips into me", she says.
