Trump Defends Court Nominee Kavanaugh: 'I Am With Him All the Way'

24 September, 2018, 20:14 | Author: Conrad Doyle
  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell R-Ky. flanked by Sen. John Thune R-S.D. left and Majority Whip John Cornyn R-Texas speaks with reporters about the confirmation for President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

"For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago, and 30 years ago and never mention it - all of a sudden it happens", Trump said.

"I am with Judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote", Trump said.

The White House, which called Ramirez's allegation "the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats", reportedly does not plan to withdraw Kavanaugh's nomination. But if his accusers have no solid proof either incident happened - and so far they do not - the women who stepped forward hoping to protect women's rights will instead have a Supreme Court justice who is not only a Conservative, but who considers himself to have been falsely accused of sexual assault in front of his family. Kavanaugh denied Ramirez's claims.

According to a report in The New Yorker, Ramirez has alleged that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while at a college party at Yale University in CT.

Deadly gun attack at Iran military parade
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack. "Iran will respond swiftly and decisively in defence of Iranian lives". In that assault, suicide bombers stormed the parliament and mausoleum of Islamic Republic founder Ayatollah Khomeini.

The new information came hours after the Senate committee agreed to a date and time for a hearing after almost a week of uncertainty over whether Ford would appear to tell her story.

His confirmation by the Republican-controlled Senate seemed assured until Ford alleged in a Washington Post interview that a drunken 17-year-old Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to tear her clothes off. "This is a smear, plain and simple", the federal appeals court judge said in a statement, adding that he meant to defend himself at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing scheduled for Thursday.

"He is a fine man with an unblemished past and these are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers", Trump said in comments broadcast on CNN.

"She was like, 'I can't deal with this, '" Russell Ford said.

Guardiola calls for response from Sane
However, coach Pep Guardiola said they could have scored more goals and they must be more clinical in front of the goal. On a day were every City player was allowed space and time , there were no bad performances from any of the players.

Ramirez, a freshman at the time, said that she was invited by a friend on the school's women's soccer team to a dorm room party at the college's Lawrence Hall, a student residence hall. This person was allegedly sober at the party and is "100% sure" that it was Brett Kavanaugh about whom he had heard a story.

A senior Senate aide, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Republicans intend to move ahead with a confirmation vote, echoing remarks made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Friday. Ramirez has not stated whether she is willing to testify, but she has called for an FBI investigation.

The new accusation landed late Sunday in a report from The New Yorker, just a few hours after negotiators had reached an agreement to hold an extraordinary public hearing Thursday for Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who accuses him of sexually assaulting her at a party when they were teenagers. "We were sitting in a circle", she said.

Deborah Ramirez described the alleged incident after being contacted by The New Yorker magazine. Those calendars, he says, 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.
