Kavanaugh floats virginity defense amid sexual assault allegations

Dozens of angry protesters were arrested at the Capitol Hill offices of multiple senators as opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh grew

It was an extraordinary appearance for a nominee to the nation's highest court, one no such nominee had done before.

Meanwhile, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Committee on the Judiciary Ranking member Dianne Feinstein, in a letter, urged President Donald Trump to direct the Federal Bureau of Investigation to immediately and thoroughly investigate Ford's allegations and report to the Senate as soon as possible.

Kavanaugh's wife, Ashley, said she found the sexual misconduct allegations hard to believe.

Kavanaugh said it's possible he may have met Ford at some time, but he said they were not friends and did not travel in the same social circles.

"I want a fair process where I can defend my integrity, and I know I'm telling the truth", the judge said. The panel's Democratic senators, four women and six men, were expected to question Ford and Kavanaugh but those details were still not final, Senator Dick Durbin said.

Republicans had been bullish about Kavanaugh's chances to ride out the storm, given that Ford did not appear to have any corroborating witnesses ready to testify. Ford says he sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers. "I've never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said in the interview, sitting alongside his wife.

Additionally, a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh, Debbie Ramirez, claims he exposed himself to her at a college party, and Michael Avenatti, who is representing adult film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against Trump, tweeted Sunday he soon intends to reveal accusations against Kavanaugh from another woman.

Kavanaugh said Monday, "I never did any such thing".

"This is a high quality person and it would be a disgusting insult to our country" if he's not confirmed.

Unlike India, where Supreme Court judges have a retiring age, the judges to the US Supreme Court are appointed for life.

"This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen", he said in a statement.

Brett Kavanaugh was in his teens at the time of the alleged assaults, and some of the messaging by his political allies suggests that sexual misconduct and sexual harassment are no big deal. "The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh".

Mr Kavanaugh was defiant as well.

On Monday, the president told reporters, "I'm with Judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote".

Murkowski isn't the only prominent Republican who has expressed reservations about Kavanaugh or his confirmation process. Then, no matter what state you live in, sign and share this moving letter to Dr. Blasey Ford penned by three fifteen-year-old girls who are youth activists with the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence.

Preparing for the hearing with Ford, Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley of Iowa said Republicans had hired an "investigating counsel" to handle questioning. "I did not have sexual intercourse, or anything close to sexual intercourse, in high school or for many years thereafter..."

Kavanaugh also told MacCallum he's resolute about not letting "false accusations" force him to withdraw.

"Despite our living conditions, Brett and I did not socialize beyond the first few days of Freshman year".
