Trump defends court nominee as Republican press for confirmation

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the third day of his Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill

By the way, does Kavanaugh remember any sexually explicit emails from former judge Alex Kozinski, whose career ended when a slew of claims regarding sexual harassment came to light? "Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this". "They're the subject of smears, and are facing Senate Democrats who say he has no presumption of innocence because they don't agree with his judicial philosophy", he said, with swipe directed at Senators like Mazie Hirono, who has been on air arguing against presumption of innocence since yesterday. "I don't think it was just 'Brett.' And I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there".

Vice President Mike Pence calls Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh "a man of integrity with impeccable credentials".

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh vowed Monday to press forward with his confirmation hearings amid mounting sexual misconduct allegations.

The second claim against Kavanaugh dates to his first year at Yale University.

"I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and other Senators directly, person to person, to tell you what occurred", Ford wrote in the letter that was released on Monday.

"There's a chance this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate", Trump said Monday, after leaving United Nations Headquarters in NY, which is holding a General Assembly meeting this week.

Trump is suggesting the timing of the New Yorker article is further evidence of what he has been saying privately for days: that the Democrats and media are conspiring to undermine his pick.

Trump mused to confidants that the "fake" attacks against his nominee were meant to undermine his presidency, according to a White House official and a Republican close to the White House.

The president showed no initial sign of wanting to walk away from Kavanaugh and expressed frustration that the confirmation process has not moved more quickly.




Stormed McConnell: "Senate Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man's personal and professional life on the basis of decades-old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncorroborated". "Somebody yelled down the hall, 'Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie's face, ' " she said.

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

White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec called the new allegation part of a "coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

Conway's rhetoric echoes Hillary Clinton's 1998 description of allegations that her husband, President Bill Clinton, had had affairs.

The effort came after a week of right-wing criticism of Ford and disbelief of her account. Ford has alleged Kavanaugh was "stumbling drunk" when it happened.

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. Deborah said she and Kavanaugh both attended a women's soccer team dorm room party while freshmen at Yale.

Avenatti tweeted on Sunday evening that: "I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge".

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 USA court.

Grassley responded to Blasey Ford in a letter Monday, telling her that he is committed to treating her fairly. Kavanaugh denies the claim.
