Kavanaugh says new allegations are 'ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone'

Kavanaugh says new allegations are 'ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone'

She said she had been nearly raped by someone who was now a federal judge.

"The truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise", Kavanaugh said in an interview on Fox News Channel's "The Story with Martha MacCallum", to air on Monday evening.

Lawyers for Kavanaugh sent five pages from the calendar to the Senate Judiciary Committee late Tuesday, notifying them they meant to use the pages to prove Kavanaugh wasn't at a 1982 house party where Christine Blasey Ford alleges Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her, tried to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth.

The declarations will be used by Ford's attorneys during a committee hearing on Thursday that could determine the fate of Kavanaugh's embattled nomination. In a Tuesday morning tweet, Avenatti said the woman would come forward only when she is ready but said he expects that to be within 36 hours.

It denies the accusers witnesses who could speak publicly in their behalf, even appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday when Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are scheduled to testify.

Borger noted that Murkowski feels it's "important to remember if the FBI investigates these allegations, that it would be part of a continuation of the multiple background checks the Federal Bureau of Investigation has already conducted".

"The second accuser has nothing". "I'm confident we're going to win", McConnell told reporters Tuesday afternoon. She doesn't know it was him. Whereas if she reiterates her uncertainty, she'll be asked, "How can we trust an accusation if the accuser is admittedly uncertain?" There are time lapses'. "This and statements he has made previously are flatly inconsistent with your letter".

The New Yorker reported Sunday that in Ramirez's initial conversations with the publication, "she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh's role in the alleged incident with certainty".

"She said she was totally inebriated".

Thursday's showdown before the Senate Judiciary Committee shaping up as a potential make or break moment in Kavanaugh's bid to join the nation's highest court. I know my lifelong record and I'm not going to let false accusations drive me out of this process. This is a high quality person, and it would be a awful insult to our country if this doesn't happen. "We have done it because we want to depoliticize the whole process, like the Democrats politicized the Anita Hill thing". It can not be allowed to happen.

Trump, who himself faced allegations of sexual misconduct during the 2016 presidential campaign, again accused Democrats of "a con game" and praised how Republicans have handled Ford's allegation.

'She has been very, very careful about what information she's putting out there.

McConnell said the outside lawyer would question Ford "in a respectful and professional way". Those are the facts she is comfortable with putting forward.

Kavanaugh, whom Trump picked in July to replace Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy on the bench, was accused earlier in September of forcing himself on Palo Alto University psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford when the two were teenagers.

The president showed his fury at what was happening to his nominee as he spoke at length about what a "high quality" person Kavanaugh is and turned his ire onto Democrats, charging them with running a con game and noting they were beating Republicans in it.

"I don't think there's any dispute that he drank when he was in high school and when he was in college but that's not the issue here", Wilkinson told CNN.

"They're really con artists".

Ronan Farrow, the co-author of The New Yorker story, had defended Ramirez on Monday.
