Brett Kavanaugh Denies Fresh Harassment Allegations From College Classmate

Dozens of angry protesters were arrested at the Capitol Hill offices of multiple senators as opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh grew

Kavanaugh: "The truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise".

General Assembly, President Donald Trump - a man accused of multiple instances of sexual assault - tried to discredit Ramirez's claims for that very reason, saying she "has nothing", since she "admits she was drunk".

"The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so", the judge said in a statement.

"There is only one way to get to the bottom of these allegations against Judge Kavanaugh and prevent the nation from being thrown into further turmoil: an independent background check investigation by the FBI", said Senator Chuck Schumer, the senior Democrat in the Senate.

"This is a high-quality person and I certainly hope - it would be a frightful insult to our country if this doesn't happen".

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".

Ramirez is the second woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

California professor Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault at a high school party more than 35 years ago.

Mr Kavanaugh denies both allegations which have surfaced since he was nominated for the body that has the ultimate say on issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage.

She alleged that Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party.




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

He has denied both accusations.

Flake, who is retiring from the Senate in early January, was among the handful of Republicans who first said the committee should delay a vote until hearing from Ford.

In the #MeToo era, when accounts by women of past sexual abuse have brought down a string of previously powerful men, Trump's defiant stand could not be more divisive, appalling many, but likely stirring his Republican base frustrated at what it sees as political correctness run amok.

Trump and Republican leaders are accusing Democrats of a smear campaign by using accusations by two women of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh in the 1980s to try scuttling his Senate confirmation.

Kavanaugh: "I was never at any such party".

"We are now in a place where it's not about whether or not Judge Kavanaugh is qualified", Murkowski told the New York Times in an interview published online Tuesday.

A spokesperson for the Time's Up movement later issued a statement calling for Kavanaugh to withdraw: "His confirmation would compromise the integrity of the court for generations to come", he said.

In the event that Kavanaugh's nomination does not go through, Trump might in turn nominate one of these judges, who were chosen from a list of 25 judges selected by the conservative Federalist Society. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared Monday that Kavanaugh will receive a confirmation vote on the Senate floor "in the near future".

Like Christine Blasey Ford, the professor accusing him of assaulting her when they were teenagers, Ramirez wants the FBI to investigate the incident, and Democratic lawmakers are backing their demands.
