Trump Calls Kavanaugh 'Outstanding,' Dismissing Latest Sexual Misconduct Allegation

Christine Ford researchgate net

Senate Democrats are reportedly investigating the allegations from Ramirez, and the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein, has called for Kavanaugh's nomination to be delayed.

When, or whether, such testimony will occur remains unclear.

In a statement, the Supreme Court nominee strongly refuted the allegation.

Earlier, Trump ended a week of constraint and sarcastically assailed Ford, tweeting that if the episode was "as bad as she says", she or "her loving parents" surely would have reported it to law enforcement. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so.

The #BelieveSurvivors movement joins the #WhyIDidn'tReport campaign, which defends women who didn't come forward about the abuse they suffered until many years later, if at all.

Deborah Ramirez, a Yale university classmate of the judge, detailed the alleged incident to the New Yorker. She managed to escape but the episode traumatized her for years.

"This may be the first time we ever heard of allegations against someone as a teenager who did not prey upon women thusly as he became powerful", Conway said during an appearance Monday on "CBS This Morning".

The Committee delayed a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation after California professor Christine Blasey Ford's allegations emerged last week.

A Feinstein spokesman said her office had no knowledge of the New Yorker story before it published.

But with the negotiations dragging on, Trump has been growing increasingly frustrated.

They said in the statement that Ramirez never described the incident until after Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court.

Daniel Carlson missed both field goal attempts, however, and the Vikings had to settle for a 29-29 tie at Lambeau Field. You let me know. "And he says, 'I love you, too.' ..." And to call it at that point in the game is just unbelievable.

Democratic senators were expected to ask their own questions.

After much back and forth, a tentative agreement was reached for a Thursday hearing for Ford to discuss the alleged assault with the Judiciary Committee.

Senator Chris Coons (D-Del), called Trump's comments "unacceptable and beneath the Presidency of the United States".

And Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), said the president should call for the FBI to investigate if he wanted to "get to the bottom" of Blasey's account.

"We certainly hope he's going to be confirmed, and quickly".

As Republicans considered their next move in private talks, they also made it clear they viewed Ford's offer as a way to delay voting on President Donald Trump's pick for the court.

"Keep the faith, don't get rattled by it", McConnell said at the Values Voter Summit. "This fine nominee to the Supreme Court will receive a vote, in this Senate, in the near future".

Privately, Republicans are anxious about the fallout from any testimony that comes from Blasey. There are 21 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee - 11 conservative Republican men and 10 Democrats.

But Kavanaugh's nomination languished for three years, as Democrats fumed over his participation in Bush's recount team.

In backing away from his deadline, Grassley underscored the sensitivity with which Senate Republicans have tried handling Ford.

In a tweet, Ed Whelan, the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and, according to The Washington Post, a strategist helping Kavanaugh navigate claims of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford, said he "takes full responsibility for that mistake, and I deeply apologize for it". Judge has said he has no memory of any such episode taking place, and Republican officials have deemed the proposal to subpoena him "a nonstarter".
