Trump Dismisses Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh as 'Highly Unsubstantiated,' 'Totally Political'

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee

"I want her to have her voice", Trump said. "I remember a penis being in front of my face", she said.

"The Democrats are engaged in a campaign of delay and character assassination against Judge Kavanaugh". The White House, meanwhile, calls the report "the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

"These are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers", Trump told reporters at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City.

Ramirez said that, when both she and Kavanaugh were freshmen at Yale, she was invited by a friend on the women's soccer team to a dorm-room party. This came to the attention of people on the Hill independently, and it has cornered her into an awkward position. Let her say whatever she has to say.

Yet Trump said he was in favor of Ford testifying publicly.

New allegations against Kavanaugh have come to light since.

For their part, Democrats say Republicans are mounting an unseemly rush to get Kavanaugh into the nine-member Supreme Court while they still control the legislature.

Conway said: "Are we going to put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man's shoulders?"

This all is so flimsy that it makes Christine Ford's story look airtight by comparison.

The judiciary panel said it had talked to three other people who Ms Ford has told The Washington Post were at the party where the alleged assault took place - Mark Judge, Patrick J Smyth and Leland Ingham Keyser.

President Donald Trump defended Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a "fantastic man" in a radio interview broadcast on Monday.

Puerto Rican community remembers lives lost in Hurricane Maria one year later
The island only recently achieved 100-percent restoration of power after many residents went nearly a year without. But others felt that Maria's tragic legacy still needs to be acknowledged, long after the anniversary has passed.

"We know that allegations of sexual assault are some of the most under-reported crimes that exist", Collins said.

The woman, Deborah Ramirez, was a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale.

Kavanaugh denied the story, calling it "a smear, plain and simple".

But on Monday morning, the article's authors Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer appeared on ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's TODAY respectively to defend their reporting.

The White House and Brett Kavanaugh issued swift denials Sunday night after an explosive new account emerged of alleged sexual misconduct by the Supreme Court nominee when he was in college, adding greater disarray to a nomination already sullied by an earlier charge of sexual abuse.

On Monday, Trump decried the allegations.

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec released a statement denouncing the report.

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec also called the latest claim "a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

Her phrase echoed Hillary Clinton's 1998 depiction of infidelity allegations against her husband, President Bill Clinton, as a "vast right-wing conspiracy".

Kavanaugh has denied the accusation and called it a smear. He and Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh assaulted her while both were teens in the 1980s, are set to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person, and I am with him all the way. It has also forced the White House and Senate Republicans onto the defensive and fueled calls from Democrats to postpone further action on his confirmation.
