In TV interview, Kavanaugh denies sexually assaulting anyone

Students from Yale march in Washington D.C

Go ahead and ruin this guy's life based on an accusation - I don't know when it happened, I don't know where it happened and everybody named in regard to being there, said it didn't happen.

One of Brett Kavanaugh's Yale classmates has come forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct, claiming he thrust his penis in her face during a party in the 80s.

"This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen", he said in a statement. "I did not have sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter". There are so many examples of journalistic malpractice in the piece that I feel compelled to go through at least some of the many lowlights by taking direct quotes from the article and annotating them in the order in which they appeared. Ben Sasse, R-Neb. Sasse has been a frequent critic of President Donald Trump.

"And this is an allegation about a party in the summer of 1982 at a house near Connecticut Avenue and East-West Highway with five people present".

Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, said Kavanaugh attacked her and tried to remove her clothing while he was drunk at a party when they were both teenagers in the 1980s. One thing the Senate GOP's been adamant about with respect to the Ford hearing is limiting the number of witnesses invited to testify - just Ford and Kavanaugh, with no subpoena for the only person alleged to have witnessed the incident in that case, Mark Judge.

The Post reported Sunday that Keyser said in a brief interview at her home that she still believes Ford, even if she doesn't remember the party. They want to get rid of ICE, they want to get rid of law enforcement, they don't want to take care of our military, they want to raise your taxes, but they are good at one thing: That is obstruction and con. "I know my lifelong record and I'm not going to let false accusations drive me out of this process".

"The truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise", Kavanaugh said in an interview with Fox News on Monday night. He said he did not question that perhaps Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted but said "what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

Mr Kavanaugh referenced a letter signed by dozens of women he knew in high school which defended the judge, saying "listen to the people who know me best". He is a fine, fine man.

'The second accuser has nothing, ' Trump said. "His family has suffered", he said in NY while attending the United Nations General Assembly. What is going on is not something that should happen. Eva Malecki, communications director for Capitol Police, confirmed the arrests were made at the Dirksen Senate Office Building but would not say how many. "The Senate should shut this circus down and move the Kavanaugh confirmation to a timely vote". That is where we are.

McConnell says the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation soon. "Aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate", he said on the Senate floor.

The White House is approaching Ford's potential testimony with trepidation, nervous that an emotional appearance might not just damage Kavanaugh's chances but could further energize female voters to turn out against Republicans in November. Trump's first nominee, Judge Gorsuch, was confirmed by the Senate on April 7, 2017. Russell Wheeler, an expert on the judicial selection process at the Brookings Institution, said he was unaware of a similar media interview by a Supreme Court nominee in the past 100 years. As a result, all the nominations to the apex bench have long-term implications - mostly generational. Judge Stephen Breyer, also nominated by Clinton, has been a Supreme Court judge for over 24 years now.
