Trump on Brett Kavanaugh: "I am with him all the way"

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh now faces allegations of sexual misconduct from a second woman, who claims he exposed himself to her at a Yale party in a new report from the New Yorker magazine.

The New Yorker magazine reported late Sunday that two US senators are investigating a woman's charge that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a Yale University dormitory party during the 1983-1984 academic year.

According to the report, Ramirez was initially hesitant to speak publicly about the incident because of what she described as "gaps" in her memory. "This is a smear, plain and simple", he said. "This 35-year-old uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear a good man down", said Kupec.

"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

President Donald Trump is not abandoning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the sexual assault allegations Kavanaugh faces are "totally political".

Sen. Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, acknowledged that lawmakers will "probably not" be able to know the truth of Christine Blasey Ford's decades-old allegation that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a house party when they were teenagers. "This is a story - she did not ask for this".

Judge Kavanaugh, though, denies both incidents and is set to testify about the allegation by Ms. Blasey Ford on Thursday before the Judiciary Committee.

Trump said: "He's a fine man with an unblemished past and these are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers".

The magazine said it had not found eyewitnesses to confirm that Mr Kavanaugh was at the party, though one former classmate remembered hearing about the incident from another, and independently corroborated numerous details offered by Ms Ramirez.

"A classmate of Ramirez's, who declined to be identified because of the partisan battle over Kavanaugh's nomination, said that another student told him about the incident either on the night of the party or in the next day or two".

"Her name is Elizabeth Rasor, and she was at Catholic University with (Judge), and she said, "I feel a moral obligation to correct the record here, '" Mayer said, paraphrasing her source".

"If they continue to contest those two things, there won't be a hearing", Mr Graham said. Patrick "PJ" Smyth, a friend of Kavanaugh who signed a letter supporting him, has told the Judiciary Committee he had no firsthand knowledge of the party where Ford claims the assault happened.

Kavanaugh is President Trump's choice to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement. Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify on Thursday.

Kavanaugh was questioned by committee staff last week.

"This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanaugh".

She says she was picked repeatedly to drink, which caused her to become inebriated.

Kavanaugh released a statement immediately following the public accusation denying that it ever happened. You should look into the lawyers, their representation. Conway during her interview urged Ramirez to contact the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about that accusation.
