Kavanaugh accuser Ford agrees to testify Thursday; 2nd accuser steps forward

Megyn Kelly

Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the panel would "attempt to evaluate these new claims" but did not publicly respond to a call by Sen.

Christine Blasey Ford has agreed to "provide first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct next week", according to an email from her attorneys obtained by Politico.

Grassley's spokesman, George Hartmann, told CNN that the chairman will "look into" the new allegation, but there are no plans at the moment to delay the Thursday hearing.

In a second allegation via reporting in the New Yorker magazine by Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow, Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said that when he was inebriated he exposed himself to her during a dormitory party.

I have always remarked on the hypocrisy of male politicians who bleat about the sanctity of life but who secretly obtain abortions for their daughters, wives or girlfriends. This is a smear, plain and simple.

Kavanaugh, 53, has been the subject of mounting sexual misconduct allegations in recent weeks. "Judge Kavanaugh and the American people deserve nothing less".

"Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person, and I am with him all the way", Trump said.

The women making the allegations, Trump said, "were coming out of the woodwork and, he said, "in my opinion totally political". As of Sunday evening, Trump had not spoken to Kavanaugh himself.

The judge already faces a separate allegation of sexual assault made by Christine Blasey Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University, who claims Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her at a drunken high school party in the early 1980s.




"The Supreme Court must never be viewed as partisan", Kavanaugh insisted during his Senate confirmation hearings, which were often disrupted by the shouts of protesters, many of them women who fear the conservative judge's appointment could throw doubt on the future of abortion rights in the United States.

Kavanaugh also denies those allegations.

"We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it-and we did not", the statement read. The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett. The far-left CNN reports that Keyser and Ford are "lifelong friends". She posted a sign saying she has no comment on her front door.

Kavanaugh later contributed to prosecutor Kenneth Starr's report into Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, which outlined several grounds for Clinton's impeachment.

If the answer to any one of the above is no, and Kavanaugh is confirmed despite credible evidence that he shouldn't be, then millions of women don't even need to ask who owns their bodies.

Hatch, a member of the judiciary committee, said again in his statement "every accuser deserves to be heard".

A White House official seized on the article's mention that at least four Democratic senators received information about the allegation.

Ford and Kavanaugh are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday to address the allegations after a week of fraught public negotiations between Ford's attorneys and Senate Republicans.
