President Trump: Sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh 'totally political'

Posted September 26, 2018

The Boulder woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct while they were in college is seeking an FBI investigation, her attorney said Tuesday.

Democrats are demanding a delay in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing set for Thursday where Kavanaugh and another accuser are scheduled to testify.

He has denied both accusations.

No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Richard Durbin of IL said by detailing the alleged 1980s incident when she and Kavanaugh were high schoolers, Ford exposed herself to ridicule and attack "even by the president of the United States in his tweets". "I know Brett. I've known him for 17 years", she said.

Kavanaugh, 53, said on the conservative-friendly Fox News Channel that he wasn't questioning that his initial accuser, psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford, may have been sexually assaulted in her life.

President Donald Trump accused Democrats on Tuesday of using a "con game" to try scuttling Kavanaugh's nomination and disparaged Ramirez, saying she herself conceded she was "totally inebriated and all messed up". But he added, "What I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone", a remarkable assertion for a nominee to the nation's highest court.

The former Sporting Lisbon and Porto playmaker has been included in Alan Shearer's Team of the Week as a result. They deserved their point and we deserve the punishment of only getting one point.

Now that the dreaded Patriarchy is finally coming down (whatever that means), let's ignore two of Ford's witnesses - PJ Smyth and Mark Judge (who have ZERO recollection of this house party) because ... they are men, and therefore members of that dreaded patriarchy. But... I know his heart.

"I also was not present and therefore am not in a position to directly dispute Ramirez's account", Ewing said, though The New Yorker reported that he emphasized that the allegation was "out of character" for Kavanaugh. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country.

When I testified in front of the Senate three weeks ago, I explained my belief that fair process is foundational to justice and to our democracy.

"In our view, the hiring of an unnamed 'experienced sex crimes prosecutor, ' as Mr. Davis described in his email, is contrary to the Majority's repeated emphasis on the need for the Senate and this Committee's members to fulfill their constitutional obligations".

Multiple Senate Republicans told Fox News that they'd vote against Kavanaugh if they heard "something alarming" during Thursday's testimony.

Trump said Ford's allegation was 36 years old "and nobody ever heard about it".

Three plays later the defense did its part too, sacking Kirk Cousins - who had a frightful game on Sunday - and forcing a fumble. Bank Stadium, where the Vikings had won 10 of their last 11 games including the playoffs, began booing with increased intensity.

It is unheard of for a Supreme Court nominee to give interviews during the confirmation process.

Ramirez is the second woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Republican leaders and Trump have rejected Democratic demands for the FBI to investigate the allegations. The two are expected to discuss Rosenstein's role in the Russian Federation investigation, as well as reports claiming Rosenstein suggested secretly taping the president or asking for support from within the Cabinet to impeach Trump.

Kavanaugh and his Republican allies have framed the allegations as part of a "smear campaign" by Democrats who have opposed his nomination from the beginning.

Mormon Women for Ethical Government, which is not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said the allegations are serious and the Senate shouldn't rush Kavanaugh's vote. Kavanaugh's choice of the network that sits at the center of Trump-era Republican policy and thought was, itself, a provocative choice.

Ramirez told The New Yorker magazine that at a party both attended as Yale freshmen in the 1980s, a drunken Kavanaugh placed his penis in front of her and caused her to involuntarily touch it. Kavanaugh denies her allegation. We're talking about an allegation of sexual assault.
