Donald Trump Attacks Brett Kavanaugh Accusers After Addressing UN: "Democratic Con Game"

Getty									Mark Judge was named as Brett Kavanaugh's high school classmate

The Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a vote Friday morning on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, should Republicans' concerns be alleviated after his Thursday hearing.

The sharp exchanges on the Senate floor came one day after Kavanaugh appeared on USA cable television - an unprecedented move for a Supreme Court nominee - to refute all allegations of sexual misconduct.

With the election looming and their control of Congress at stake, Republicans have been mindful of the pitfalls of alienating women voters by their handling of the accusations against Kavanaugh.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor, says he assaulted her years ago at a suburban Maryland high school party.

Kavanaugh told Fox News he was not present at a party like the one described by Ford and noted that others Ford said were at the gathering had no recollection of it.

"I've never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not ever".

Trump also criticized a second woman who claims that as a college student, Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drinking game.


The committee will be voting on whether to recommend Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate. The committee will not vote on his nomination until after Thursday's hearing. "The goal should be to develop the relevant facts, not try a case". He also questioned the political motivations of the attorneys representing the women, saying "you should look into the lawyers doing the representation". Many called out Trump, as well as some Senate Republicans who have questioned the women's accounts.

"The committee determines which witnesses to call, how many witnesses to call, in what order to call them, and who will question them".

Grassley told TPM: "The attorney is a staff counsel, hired just like all the other lawyers we hired for the Supreme Court, and we have done it because we want to depoliticize the whole process, like the Democrats politicized the Anita Hill thing". "Who is going to speak for all of the 11 Republican senators?" "They're playing actually much better than the Republicans". And she said she was totally inebriated and she was all messed up, and she doesn't know it was him.

McConnell spoke after a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her during a Yale dorm room party, though she added that she had "significant gaps in her memory" about the traumatizing incident.

"They know it's a con game".

Ford is set to testify publicly at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday about the allegations and Kavanaugh is expected to testify afterward in response to the same panel. But he said they were not friends and did not have similar friend groups.

"I'm not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process".
