Kavanaugh, in Rare Interview, Denies Sex-Assault Allegations, Says He Won’t Withdraw

College classmate claims Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at party

This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say.

Christine Blasey Ford alleges Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party as his friend Mark Judge egged him on.

Her allegation against the conservative federal appeals court judge has endangered his confirmation by the Republican-led Senate to a lifetime job on the top United States court. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.

Kavanaugh and Ford are scheduled to testify before senators this Thursday in relation to the allegation that started this circus.

The claim reported by the New Yorker dates to the 1983-84 academic school year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman at Yale.

"Accusing someone of gang rape is slander, per se", she said, adding that he should be concerned about his law license if that claim is ever litigated by an oversight board.

Hatch and Lindsey Graham of SC, both senior GOP Judiciary panel members, said in separate statements Monday that the hearing with Ford should go ahead Thursday as planned, and then the committee should vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation.

The lawyers for Ford want the committee to hear from other witnesses, including a person who conducted a polygraph of Ford earlier this year, the person familiar with the talks said.

She remembers Kavanaugh standing to her right and laughing, pulling up his trousers.

Kavanaugh appeared to get emotional at the end of the interview.

"I know he's going to stand by me", Kavanaugh said. So far, no Republican senators have said they would vote against him.

Barça's Leo Messi will not attend FIFA's The Best gala in London

In a clip from Kavanaugh's Fox News interview with Martha MacCallum, Kavanaugh, which is set to air later Monday night, he says, "I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

"I'm not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process", Kavanaugh also told Fox News.

The potentially explosive hearing, against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault, comes just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans.

Many chanted "I believe Christine Ford", as they called on the Senate leadership to take the allegations made by Ford and Ramirez seriously.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wrangled with Ford's lawyers for the last week over the exact terms of her appearance.

Trump said he backs Kavanaugh "all the way" and dismissed the new sexual misconduct allegations as "unsubstantiated statements".

The authors of the article, Ronan Farrow and Jane Meyer, say that after interviewing more than 36 people The New Yorker couldn't find anyone who would confirm the accuser's allegation.

The White House is also continuing its support of Kavanaugh in the wake of the accusation.

"Congress may fix the alleged constitutional shortcoming and ensure that the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate provision fits comfortably within Congress's taxing clause power", Kavanaugh wrote in a prior ruling cited by Edwards.

Still, the White House and Republicans have cast doubt on Ford's allegations. She admitted to being intoxicated during the alleged incident, and was at first tired of coming forward because of gaps in her memory.
