Kavanaugh Denies Sexual Misconduct Charges from 3rd Woman

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that Republicans should have pushed Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination through the Senate two weeks ago

An attorney for Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to publicly accuse Kavanaugh of misconduct, said Wednesday during an interview on NBC's "Today" show that his client would be willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"I can always be convinced", Mr Trump said on the eve of a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing when Christine Blasey Ford, one of Mr Kavanaugh's accusers will give testimony.

Another similarly anonymous accuser alleged Kavanaugh and his school friend Mark Judge sexually assaulted a woman on a boat in Newport, Rhode Island, and were later beaten up for it.

Soon after Ford's accusation became public, the Supreme Court nominee denied any wrongdoing in a statement released by the White House. "I don't know who this is and this never happened", he said.

"Describe her appearance", Kavanaugh said.

The August 7 examination, held in a Maryland Hilton Hotel, consisted of a one-page, handwritten statement by Ford, an interview and two questions: Is any part of your statement false?

The committee also released a summary of its work that noted its staff had spoken to two different men who believe they "had the encounter" with Ford, rather than Kavanaugh. She began by expressing sympathy for Ford, who'd said she was "terrified" to testify, saying, "I just wanted to let you know, I'm very sorry".

Swetnick, whose allegations emerged on Wednesday, said she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and others to get girls drunk at parties so that they could be raped. 'When survivors do report their assaults it's often years later due to the trauma they suffered and fearing their stories will not be believed, ' she said. "Brett laid on top of me and tried to remove my clothes while groping me".

"These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh", she said. Judge was a high school classmate of Kavanaugh.

Earlier this month, Ford came forward and accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, according to The Washington Post.

During Christine Blasey Ford's testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday about her sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she was asked about her strongest memory of the alleged incident. She criticized Republicans who have rejected Democratic demands to slow Kavanaugh's confirmation process and let the FBI investigate all the allegations, saying, "What I don't understand is the rush to judgment". "The accusations brought against Judge Kavanaugh are sickening and deserve an independent investigation", Baker wrote.

"It's possible I'll hear that and say hey, I'm changing my mind".

Supreme Court appointments must be confirmed by the Senate, and Trump's fellow Republicans control the chamber by a narrow 51-49 margin.

"These are last minute smears, pure and simple", he said, adding that while he was "not perfect" in high school he "never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes".
