Second woman accuses US Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault

Megyn Kelly

"The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh".

But if the allegations are serious enough that they tank Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation, there will be pressure to remove him from his current position as well. Moreover, another witness, a lifelong friend of Ford's, not only can not remember the house party, she says she has never met Kavanaugh.

Ford's attorneys say that several requests they have made of the committee have been refused, such as calling additional witnesses who Ford remembers being at the party, and having the FBI investigate her story.

By submitting their respective statements to the Senate Judiciary Committee, all three witnesses did so under penalty of imprisonment, and all three have zero recollection of the house party in question.

"These are smears, pure and simple".

"This alleged behavior would render Judge Kavanaugh unfit for the Supreme Court, or for any court", said Emily Martin, vice president for education and workplace justice at the National Women's Law Center.

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

Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat representing Colorado in Congress, says Democratic staff members of the Senate Judiciary Committee reached out to them last week regarding Ramirez and her claims.

He has denied both accusations. California's Diane Feinstein, the committee's top Democrat, sent a letter Sunday to Republican chairman Charles Grassley urging him to refer the new allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in order to ensure "a fair, independent process that will gather all the facts".

The latest allegation comes as Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her while they were both in high school, and Kavanaugh are expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Ford is set to testify at a Senate hearing on Thursday.

Benjamin Wittes, editor in chief of Harvard's Lawfare blog and someone who counts Kavanaugh as a personal friend, said as much in an article in The Atlantic.

A second allegation of sexual misconduct has emerged against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a development that has further imperiled his nomination to the Supreme Court. So, Ramirez went from uncertain, to confident in order to support Ford's claim.

Conway said she has "no idea" if Ramirez made up her accusation.

President Donald Trump was told about the new sexual misconduct allegations about Brett Kavanaugh in the New Yorker hours before the explosive publication Sunday, according to a White House official.

'The fact that she took several days to carefully think about whether she wanted to cast herself into this storm is acknowledgment that there were gaps in her memory, which is often the case with experiences that involve alcohol, and this is not a woman that is behaving in a way that would suggests she has a agenda, or making something up, ' he said.

WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 04: Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 4, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Beyond his ascension into the highest court in the USA, questions have come up about Kavanaugh's current employment.
