Another woman accuses Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

Judge Brett Kavanaugh listens during his US Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing to be an Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, September 4, 2018. "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don't know who this is and this never happened".

Lawyer Michael Avenatti has said he is representing a woman who has accusations about Kavanaugh's behavior in high school.

The allegations from 36 years ago have put in jeopardy Mr Kavanaugh's chances of winning confirmation in a Senate narrowly controlled by Mr Trump's party.

Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley, sat down for an interview with Fox News Channel's "The Story with Martha MacCallum" after a second woman accused him of sexual misconduct. The AP has not been able to corroborate them, and continues to investigate.

"During our meal, Christine was visibly upset, so I asked her what was going on", Gildo-Mazzon said in her declaration.

He posted both a photo of Kavanaugh's newest accuser, Julie Swetnick, and a court document with details of the allegation.

"The Senate, the Republicans, could not be nicer in the way they're handling this". The controversy has unfolded ahead of the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats seek to take control from the Republicans. She can tell the country how the attack transformed her life, how the memory is seared into her mind and the price she has paid, first for living with a bad secret and now for coming forward.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexual and physical assault while the two were at a party during their high school years.

He said he was not present at a party like the one described by Ford and noted that others Ford said were at the gathering had no recollection of it.

Kavanaugh says he won't let 'false accusations' push him out
The Supreme Court is 229 years old and women have had the right to vote in this country for less than a century. Here are four reasons why Ramirez's accusations are even weaker than Christine Blasey Ford's .

Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil will look to support Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng. However, his form is usually inconsistent and according to many, he has failed to mature his game.

The committee will be voting on whether to recommend Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate.

During the interview, Kavanaugh denied sexually assaulting anyone.

"I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends", he wrote.

She should repeat as many times as she likes, "I am willing to sit down with the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

"I think all of us have probably done things we look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit, but that's not what we're talking about". The judge has categorically denied that allegation as well.

"We are at just a hard place because the conversation is not rational on either side", she said. "But they didn't do that", Trump told reporters in NY, where he is attending the annual United Nations gathering of world leaders. Asked about the move, Trump said the lawmakers "could not be nicer" and "could not be more respectful".

Hoping the hearing will yield no new surprises, the Judiciary Committee scheduled its own vote on Kavanaugh for Friday, and Republican leaders laid plans that could keep the full Senate in session over the weekend and produce a final showdown roll call soon after - close to the October 1 start of the high court's new term. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a statement the objective is to "de-politicize the process and get to the truth, instead of grandstanding and giving senators an opportunity to launch their presidential campaigns". "And she said she was totally inebriated, and she was all messed up, and she doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him". In a Tuesday morning tweet, Avenatti said the woman would come forward only when she is ready but said he expects that to be within 36 hours. It took a page from the playbook of the man who picked Kavanaugh for the job, President Donald Trump, using his news organization of choice, often a sort of cheerleader in chief for his administration.

According to USA Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee received declarations from Ford's husband, Russell, along with three friends of the California professor, who alleged the accuser disclosed the alleged incident to them on multiple occasions. The decision prompted an outcry from Democrats, whose 10 panel members include four women, given that senators typically do the questioning themselves.
