New calls for Kavanaugh to withdraw after second misconduct claim by classmate

24 Septembre, 2018, 06:45 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau
  • Kavanaugh denied the incident occurred calling it

She alleges Mr Kavanaugh exposed his genitals at a dormitory party and thrust them in her face, causing physical contact without consent. The New Yorker reports it reached out to Ramirez after learning of the alleged incident, and that she responded after six days of inventorying her memories and speaking with her lawyer.

"We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, D.C., area during the 1980s" during which Kavanaugh and others "would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a "train" of men to subsequently gang rape them", Avenatti wrote.

That's the new and latest deadline in the high-stakes confrontation over whether Brett Kavanaugh's accuser will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In a piece just published on newyorker.com, Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer report that Senate Democrats are investigating a new allegation of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court. "I remember a penis being in front of my face", she said, describing the alleged event.

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement, "This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

The ugliness deepened at the end of last week, and it will get no better now that Christine Blasey Ford has agreed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday about her accusation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh. "I knew that's not what I wanted, even in that state of mind".

Through her lawyer, the woman told the committee on Saturday that she does not know Kavanaugh and she didn't remember being at a party with him, emails show.

Friday evening at a rally in Missouri, the President also said Republicans have to fight for Kavanaugh, and that women will back that approach.

Other Republicans scoffed at Ford's latest offer questioning her willingness to accept the committee's request to tell her story.

That question could be answered in dramatic fashion as early as this week with Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh and the Senate Judiciary Committee set to collide in a riveting election season congressional showdown, with pivotal November midterms just weeks away and Trump badly in need of a political win.

Friends of both Kavanaugh and Ramirez, however, disputed the allegations. - three of whom spoke to the New Yorker on the record.

But, it appears, the woman doesn't remember the party described by Dr. Ford.

Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii calls the allegation "serious, credible, and disturbing". "She has agreed to move forward with a hearing even though the committee has refused to subpoena Mark Judge".

Kavanaugh, who now sits on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, is a former Bush administration official who has been nominated to the seat vacated by Anthony Kennedy who was considered the swing justice on the court, particularly in cases involving issues like abortion and gay rights. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place.

The committee said it would not negotiate on other points, though, including Ford's desire for additional witnesses and a request to testify after, not before, Kavanaugh.

A Republican member of the Judiciary Committee, Senator Lindsey Graham, said Grassley "bent over backwards" to make the hearing happen.

Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, said on "Fox News Sunday" said he wouldn't vote against Kavanaugh without additional evidence."Unless there's something more, no, I'm not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this", he said.
