  • Poll: Kavanaugh Support Among GOP Women Drops

The day before Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is set to testify about the sexual assault accusations she's made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, 1,600 men crowdfunded a full-page ad in the New York Times to show their support and say they believe her.

California professor Christine Blasey Ford has said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when both were in high school.

"Every woman of my vintage has not just one story but many stories, but we thought there was nothing you could do about it - boys will be boys - so just find a way to get out of it", Ginsburg said during an event with first-year law students at Georgetown University in Washington, Reuters reported.

"It's possible I'll hear that and I'll say, 'Hey, I'll change my mind, '" Trump said.

We should move more, yeah". "I don't change that because we won two matches in the Premier League". Maybe as well we felt a bit of fatigue because we played Champions League.

Judge, who Ford said was present at the time of the assault, said in a letter sent to the Judiciary Committee by his lawyer that he had "no memory of this alleged incident". She said it "has to be taken into account and taken seriously".

In the sworn statement, she also alleges that Kavanaugh engaged "in abusive and physically aggressive behavior towards girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent, "grinding" against girls and attempting to remove or shift girls' clothing to expose private body parts". "I think that is a very, very risky standard for our country".

In prepared testimony released on Wednesday, September 26, the 51-year-old Blasey Ford said she feared Kavanaugh would rape her during the attack, which she said occurred in the summer of 1982.

Since Ford came forward publicly with her allegation in The Washington Post, another woman has accused Kavanaugh of past sexual misconduct. "People want fame, they want money, whatever".

Shoigu said it was one of the counter-measures to maintain security in Syria's airspace after the loss of the Ilyushin-20 plane. Earlier in the war, Russian Federation suspended a supply of S-300, which Israel feared Syria could use against it.

Hours later, lawyer Michael Avenatti - who represents porn star Stormy Daniels and has announced his candidacy for the Democrats' 2020 presidential nomination - released details of new sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

The White House earlier this week said it would welcome testimony from the second accuser, Ramirez.

"They are actually con artists because they know how quality this man is and they have destroyed a man's reputation and they want to destroy it even more and I think people are going to see that in the midterms, what they have done to this family, what they have done to these children, these handsome children of his and what they have done to his wife".

Trump said the accusations of sexual assault that have bedeviled him since the 2016 election "absolutely" affect his view of Kavanaugh's accusers: "It does impact my opinion".

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski confirms he squashed trade to Lions
The Patriots and Lions were apparently closing in on a blockbuster deal involving Gronkowski during the week of the NFL Draft. Through three games, the Brady-Gronkowski connection has seen No. 87 total 13 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown.

"They're obstructionists. They're actually con artists, because they know how quality this man is, and they've destroyed a man's reputation, and they want to destroy it even more", Trump said. If Mr. Kavanaugh is being truthful when he flatly denies all accusations, an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe might turn up accounts that corroborate his story.
