Adjust Comment Print

The New Yorker said it contacted Ms Ramirez after learning of a possible involvement in an incident with Mr Kavanaugh.

Blasey Ford is scheduled to testify regarding her allegations before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

In the interview, Rivera asked Trump whether Kavanaugh should still be confirmed if people come to believe the allegations made by Ford.

Fox News is President Donald Trump's favorite network, and he often critiques his aides when they appear there.

While the walkout itself might have taken just minutes of silence, or an hour of skipping out on work at most, this moment of protest against Kavanaugh's confirmation-promoting as radical an idea as believing in the accounts of Ford and Ramirez against a man in power-is sure to be another event contributing to the ripples of change in how the US treats survivors and their assailants. "Innocent until proven guilty is how we do this in America".

Judge Kavanaugh has already released a statement denying the allegation.

Kavanaugh will also address the upcoming hearing on Thursday in which the first of his accusers, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Late Sunday, a second woman - Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh's - came forward with claims that he exposed himself to her and shoved his penis in her face at a dorm room party in their freshman year at the Ivy League school.

Kavanaugh has denied her accusation. The campaign was promoted on Twitter under the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors, and several Democrats in Congress - including members of the Senate Judiciary Committee vetting Kavanaugh - posted photos in support.

Ramirez recalled playing a drinking game at the party, resulting in her becoming inebriated.

"I have never had any sexual or physical activity with Dr. Ford", Judge Kavanaugh said.

"While I am frightened, please know, my fear will not hold me back from testifying and you will be provided answers to all of your questions", Ford wrote. Chuck Grassley, and asked that the new allegation be referred to the FBI for investigation. He said he did not question that perhaps Ms. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted, "but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

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 United States court.

MacCallum said Kavanaugh told her he wanted to take the opportunity to "clear his name" amid sexual misconduct allegations. "But I think she's sincerely wrong".

Democrats again called for the FBI to investigate Ford's claims, a request that was unlikely to be met as President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have said it's unnecessary.

Time's Up staged a nationwide walkout Monday, calling on its supporters to wear black and use the hashtag #BelieveWomen to express support for Blasey Ford and Ramirez. "This is a very dynamic situation".

Conway said: "Are we going to put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man's shoulders?" He declined to provide more details. Trump's team discussed the latest allegation with the President over the course of the day Sunday before the story was published, another White House official said.

"Everything is an excuse for delay, no matter how unsubstantiated", Hatch said.

If Kavanaugh is rejected, there are three other judges - Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman - who were widely reported to be shortlisted in the selection process.

Republicans stepped up their attempts to discredit Ford's story. Chairman Les Moonves, according to a person on the call.

But there's nothing ordinary about the stakes and circumstances of Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, with Republicans fighting to get him on the court by the end of September and cement a conservative-leaning court for years to come.

The New Yorker reported Sunday that Democrats in the Senate are investigating a new accusation stemming from Kavanuagh's time at Yale University involving a fellow student, Deborah Ramirez, now 53. She made a decision to come forward after "assessing her memories" and consulting with her lawyer, the magazine said.
