Kavanaugh: I won't be intimidated into withdrawing nomination

Durbin told ABC's "This Week" that some Republicans "reached out to Democratic senators and assured them that they are looking to this as kind of a determination as to how their final vote" on Kavanaugh is cast. "And now it's clear to me it wasn't a joke".

"This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen", Kavanaugh said. "I am with him all the way", Trump said as he arrived in NY to attend the U.N. General assembly, calling the allegations politically motivated.

Mr Kavanaugh denies the claim.

A second woman has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, with an ex-classmate of Kavanaugh's from Yale accusing him of exposing himself to her at a party at the school. She is expected to tell lawmakers about her accusation: Kavanaugh allegedly pinned her to a bed, tried to remove her clothes and covered her mouth with his hand while at a house party in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, are scheduled to testify at a hearing Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The Democrats then began investigating. Dianne Feinstein, sent a letter to Trump on Sunday saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation has more than enough time to investigate before Ford and Kavanaugh testify on Thursday.

Regardless of when Ramirez came forward, protesters across the country have stood up for her and countless other survivors of sexual harassment and assault, with constituents for Maine Sen.

Other Democrats are also upset that the allegations were kept quiet, but Feinstein felt she had no choice, according to the Associated Press.

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

Grassley turned down Ford's request that only senators, not attorneys, be allowed to ask questions.

The Times also said that the New Yorker never confirmed Kavanaugh was at the party and that none of "several dozen people" the paper interviewed had "firsthand knowledge" of the alleged incident. It is my hope that Deborah Ramirez would also come forward to the Judiciary Committee and testify. Kennedy was the frequently the court's swing vote. Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels' lawyer, is representing the woman, who says Kavanaugh, Judge, and others purposely got women drunk at college parties to later assault them, with men taking turns one after the other to rape intoxicated women.

McConnell said it sounds "like a choreographed smear campaign that ignored Dr. Ford's request for confidentiality in order to inflict maximum damage at the last minute on Judge Kavanaugh and his family".

The president showed no initial sign of wanting to walk away from Kavanaugh and expressed frustration that the confirmation process has not moved more quickly.

Conway's rhetoric echoes Hillary Clinton's 1998 description of allegations that her husband, President Bill Clinton, had had affairs. "It all boils down to how senators Murkowski and Collins perceive these allegations". Susan Collins and Alaska Sen.

"No innuendo has been too low, no insinuation too dirty", Hatch said in a statement, adding that the committee should proceed with its Thursday hearing. About 200 people gathered in front of the Supreme Court building, chanting, "I believe Christine Ford".

"The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so", the judge said in a statement. "Brett Kavanaugh needs to withdraw immediately".

Women's March, a group that grew out of a January 2017 demonstration against Trump, was one of the organizers of the protests.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
