'Totally political': Trump defends Kavanaugh after second misconduct allegation

Hollywood shows solidarity with Kavanaugh accuser Ford in walkout

"I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter", he told Fox News, appearing alongside his wife Ashley ahead of his own Senate testimony due after Ford's. The same day the Senate Judiciary Committee set a hearing about a decadesold allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, more allegations of sexual misdeeds from women in his past emerged to cause more turbulence for Republican efforts to make him a justice.

Deborah Ramirez described the alleged incident after being contacted by The New Yorker magazine.

He and Dr Ford will testify separately, the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmed.

However, Kavanaugh denied that the incident took place, calling it a "last minute allegation" before he becomes a judge of the Supreme Court.

Graham called the accusations a "game of delay, deception, and wholesale character assassination".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., angrily accused Democrats of slinging "all the mud they could manufacture" and promised a full Senate vote soon, but specified no date.

Earlier, Mr Trump has staunchly defended his embattled Supreme Court nominee against a new allegation of sexual misconduct.

"All I'm asking for is a fair process, where I can be heard", Kavanaugh said. He also questioned the political motivations of the attorneys representing the women, saying "you should look into the lawyers doing the representation".

"I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process", Kavanaugh wrote.

The second aide couldn't directly link GOP staffers' knowledge of the coming allegations to Grassley's decision to expedite the hearing but said it was "widely known" among top aides that The New Yorker was about to report new allegations.

It was largely attributed to Jose Mourinho's side being knocked out of the Champions League early last season. I get it, I do get it and I'm sure it's something the players talk about in the dressing room.

The judge said he was looking forward to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday against allegations that he had sexually assaulted a woman when she was a teenager.

But suggestions of a media-Democratic alliance have been advanced a number of times, including in commentaries in the Washington Examiner and the New York Post and by the likes of the conservative commentator Ann Coulter and Sen.

The Post reported Sunday that Keyser said in a brief interview at her home that she still believes Ford, even if she doesn't remember the party.

Trump made clear that he expects the Republican-controlled Senate to stick by Kavanaugh, who he said was being smeared by his Democratic opponents. NPR claims that Barrett and Kavanaugh were Trump's two final picks, but Vox reported that Trump wants his Supreme Court nominee to have a degree from Harvard or Yale, and Barrett attended Notre Dame Law School.

He has already successfully installed Neil Gorsuch on the bench to replace the late Antonin Scalia. The individuals present who denied that this happened are individuals who Deborah Ramirez said were involved in the alleged misconduct, who egged on Kavanaugh, who taunted her.

After a dramatic week-long standoff, Kavanaugh's accuser Ford finally committed on Sunday to be questioned in a public hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is weighing Kavanaugh's nomination.

That's been followed by a new claim against Kavanaugh by another woman.

MACCALLUM: Michael Avenatti says that he has significant evidence and another accuser, who claims that you and Mark Judge, at multiple house parties in the Washington D.C. area during the 1980s, would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol and drugs to allow a train of men to subsequently gang-rape them.

Speaking on CBS This Morning, White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway added: "This is starting to feel like a vast left-wing conspiracy". Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY and the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, California Sen.

Ford and Kavanaugh have agreed to testify, although Sen.
