Never sexually assaulted anyone: Brett Kavanaugh

Hollywood shows solidarity with Kavanaugh accuser Ford in walkout

In a defiant letter to leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh said he would "not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process". In denying the latest accusation on Monday, he called it part of "a coordinated effort to destroy my good name".

Later, Kavanaugh and his wife sat for an interview on the conservative-friendly Fox News Channel, an extraordinary step for a Supreme Court nominee.

The combative tone by Kavanaugh and Trump came a day after a second allegation emerged.

In the September 22 letter, obtained by CNN, Ford said her decision to first report the alleged assault to her congresswoman, California Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo, "was a very hard one, but I felt that this was something that a citizen couldn't NOT do".

The committee's top Democrat, senator Dianne Feinstein, has called on Senator Grassley to postpone Thursday's hearing in order to investigate Ms Ramirez's accusations.

Mr Trump, at the United Nations for his second General Assembly meeting, called the allegations unfair and unsubstantiated, made by accusers who come "out of the woodwork".

"I felt agony yet urgency and a civic duty to let it be known, in a confidential manner, prior to the nominee being selected", Ford wrote.

WASHINGTON ― Senior Republican staffers on the Senate Judiciary Committee knew last week that more sexual misconduct allegations were about to come out against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but tried to speed up his confirmation process instead of slowing it down to investigate, say two senior Senate Democratic aides familiar with committee discussions. Mark Judge, Patrick Smyth, and Leland Keyser denied the allegation in letters sent to the committee on September.

Time's Up staged a nationwide walkout Monday, calling on its supporters to wear black and use the hashtag #BelieveWomen to express support for Blasey Ford and Ramirez.

The 53-year-old complainant said she had attended Yale University with Kavanaugh, The New Yorker reported on Sunday.

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

Sister Lucy, a Catholic nun from Mananthavady, said everyone of good will stood with the protesters in their demand for justice. They intimidated the photographer and made him give a statement that the victim seemed tiresome and upset, " he also said.

Ramirez is cited by the New Yorker as saying Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken dormitory party.

Judiciary spokesman Taylor Foy complained that Democrats "actively withheld information" from the Republicans.

Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat on the committee, said Sunday he believed Ford's requests have been reasonable and that she deserves a fair hearing to determine whether her allegations are serious enough to vote down Kavanaugh's nomination.

As he builds a case for his innocence, Kavanaugh plans to turn over to the committee calendars from the summer of 1982 that don't show a party consistent with Ford's description of the gathering in which she says he attacked her, The New York Times reported Sunday.

After six days of "assessing her memories", Ramirez became confident of them, the authors claim. A sign on her front door indicated she would have no comment.

"I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place, but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh added.

The exchange highlighted the clash between Trump's pugnacious instincts and the political realities surrounding Kavanaugh's imperiled nomination.

A handful of senators in both parties remain undecided on Kavanaugh's nomination. The development could carry profound consequences not only for the future of the Supreme Court, but also for Republicans facing the growing possibility of losing control of Congress in November, partly at the hands of female voters. They note that neither the accusers nor news organizations have found people willing to provide corroboration, even though Ford and Ramirez have both named people who they said were present at the alleged incidents.

His wife Ashley, a one-time personal secretary to president George W. Bush, said she backed her husband's version of the events.

"While I am frightened, please know, my fear will not hold me back from testifying and you will be provided answers to all of your questions", Professor Ford wrote. The 11 senators on the GOP side of the dais are all men, which could send an unwanted message on live television against the backdrop of the #MeToo era.
