Kavanaugh says he won't let 'false accusations' push him out

  • College classmate claims Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at party

Brett Kavanaugh, with his wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, answers questions during a FOX News interview, Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, in Washington, about allegations of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee.

The judge, an ultra-conservative who was on the verge of being confirmed to the nation's highest court when the sexual assault allegations burst into the open a week ago, used the opportunity on Fox News to insist repeatedly that he was telling the truth.

"The truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise", Kavanaugh says in excerpts from the interview released by Fox News.

As he builds a case for his innocence, Kavanaugh plans to turn over to the committee calendars from the summer of 1982 that don't show a party consistent with Ford's description of the gathering in which she says he attacked her, The New York Times reported Sunday. Here are four reasons why Ramirez's accusations are even weaker than Christine Blasey Ford's.

Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford wrote the Senate committee that will take her testimony Thursday seeking "respectful" treatment - and claimed she has received death threats and had to hire private security.

Kavanaugh denied the allegation under oath and under penalty of felony shortly after the accusation was made public.

"The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh", spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said. The Supreme Court is 229 years old and women have had the right to vote in this country for less than a century.

But in his defense of Kavanaugh and of the Supreme Court nomination process, McConnell's complaints are transparently hypocritical, as CNN host Brooke Baldwin pointed out Monday in response to a speech from the Senate majority leader. Ford was the first person to come forward with allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.

While the White House is still supporting the nominee, many young people are not. Separately, an attorney for another woman said his client had information about Kavanaugh's behavior at parties at high school parties and wanted to testify as well. "I've always treated women with dignity and respect", he said at least three times.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegation.

Kavanaugh and his Republican allies portrayed the allegations as part of a "smear campaign" by Democrats who have fought his nomination from the outset.

The committee's top Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein, has called on Grassley to postpone Thursday's hearing in order to investigate Ramirez's accusations. That's an incident that Ms. Ramirez remembers, that she was crying recounting this.

"This is not a criminal trial for which the involvement of an experienced sex crimes prosecutor would be appropriate", the letter from Ford's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, said.

Speaking directly about the second allegation, that he exposed himself and approached Deborah Ramirez until she pushed him away at a college party, Kavanaugh said: "If such a thing had happened, it would have been the talk of campus". He said that in the near future Kavanaugh "will be voted on here on the Senate floor, up or down".

"I'm sitting here because I love him, and I respect him, and I honor what he's been through and what we've been through together", said Hillary Clinton in 1992 when she and her husband went on TV to address rumors of his infidelities.

"I know there's pent up demand for women to get their day, women who have been sexually harassed and sexually assaulted, and I personally am very aggrieved for all of them", Conway said Monday during an appearance on "CBS This Morning".

"I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh", she said in a statement. Dianne Feinstein, sent a letter to Trump on Sunday saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation has more than enough time to investigate before Ford and Kavanaugh testify on Thursday.
