Kavanaugh says he won't 'be intimidated into withdrawing'

Kavanaugh says he won't 'be intimidated into withdrawing'

Republicans mounted a combative, coordinated drive Monday to salvage Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination as they fought to keep a second woman's allegation of long-ago sexual misconduct from derailing his confirmation.

"I'm with Judge Kavanaugh", Trump said from the UN General Assembly in New York City Monday morning.

The protests from coast to coast came as the GOP majority on the Senate Judiciary Committee, along with Trump and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kent., apparently refused to budge from their prior stand of giving Kavanaugh's first accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, no more than a perfunctory "she-said he-said" hearing on September 27.

Kavanaugh has denied both allegations and plans to testify in a Thursday hearing on Capitol Hill to defend his name.

Kavanaugh and witnesses named by Ford have all denied knowledge or memory of the alleged incident. "I am with him all the way", Trump said, calling the allegations politically motivated.

Dianne Feinstein, on Sunday called for Thursday's hearing to be canceled "in light of a disturbing new allegation of misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh".

"All of us deserve fair treatment, and respect and recognition", a speaker from the National Center for Combatting Domestic Violence told nearly 1,000 people gathered in front of the Supreme Court. She also acknowledged reluctance "to characterize Kavanaugh's role in the alleged incident with certainty".

"It's very hard. It's very hard to have these conversations with your children, which we've had to have some broader terms for our youngest", Ashley said. She accused him of attacking her and trying to remove her clothing while he was drunk at a party when he was 17 years old and she was 15.

While Ford claims that Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted her at a high school party, Kavanaugh maintains his innocence. It said she had considered leaving the U.S. when it became clear Kavanaugh would be Trump's pick for supreme court justice.

"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.

Kavanaugh said in a statement issued by the White House that the alleged incident described by Ramirez "did not happen".

Mayer said that she felt the "public ought to know" about the latest allegations against Kavanaugh.

Michael Avenetti, a United States lawyer known for representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her cases against President Trump, has alleged on Twitter that he is representing a third woman with "credible information" regarding Judge Kavanaugh and the alleged witness to Prof Ford's assault, Mark Judge.

In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh said he "will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process". It's worth noting that neither Ford nor Ramirez claimed any sexual intercourse happened.

The White House is approaching Ms Ford's potential testimony with trepidation, nervous that an emotional performance might not just damage Mr Kavanaugh's chances but could further energise female voters to turn out against Republicans in November.

Grassley also asked lawyers for both Kavanaugh and Blasey to provide "any and all written, audio-visual, or electronic materials" relating to the allegations.

Until recently, Trump had remained uncharacteristically silent on the accusations against Kavanaugh, and had refused to publicly address Ford by name. Ford's attorneys have said their client wants senators to ask the questions.
