Trump Reaffirms Support for Kavanaugh After Second Accusation

I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as "PJ" who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post.

According to the report, Ford sent the email about 90 minutes after the Post shared her name with the White House - but before the newspaper posted a story revealing her name on Monday. "The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh". Now an appeals court judge, Kavanaugh denies the allegations. "I am with him all the way", Trump said after he arrived in NY to attend the United Nations General Assembly.

Throngs of women clad in black and holding "Believe Survivors" protest signs walked out of their job sites, homes, and classrooms on Monday, all of them taking part in the National Walkout and Moment of Solidarity - a cross-country demonstration of support for the women who have accused Supreme Court hopeful Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, essentially halting the nomination process and breathing new life into the #MeToo movement.

The new allegations, reported by the New Yorker, date back to Kavanaugh's freshman year at Yale University, when a classmate named Deborah Ramirez says Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at close range at a drunken dormitory party, forcing her to bat him away. CRC is best known for its work with the Swift Boat Veterans who helped tarnish Democrat John Kerry's military credentials during his 2004 presidential campaign.

Ramirez's allegations follow allegations from Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford, who said Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party in the early 1980s.

"This is EXACTLY why Dr Ford didn't want to come forward", Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill), said in a tweet.

In the New York Times, an executive for Planned Parenthood, which opposed Kavanaugh's confirmation from the start, described this pivotal moment as "a distillation of the entire two years trajectory for women in this country".

The magazine reported that after "six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections" to recall the incident. "I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name - and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building - against these last-minute allegations". He says, "Another student told him about the incident either on the night of the party or in the next day or two".

A White House spokeswoman says the administration stands by the nominee, labelling the allegation "the latest in coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear a good man down". Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale.

"We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it-and we did not", the statement read.

The choice of a new justice for the Supreme Court is pivotal, as it often gives the final word on highly contentious laws, with an vast impact on U.S. public life.

Kavanaugh was nominated by President Trump in July to replace the vacancy left by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who retired. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, to immediately postpone confirmation proceedings until the FBI could investigate.
