Trump says Republicans should have pushed through Kavanaugh sooner

Trump says Republicans should have pushed through Kavanaugh sooner”

On Sunday, The New Yorker magazine published allegations from Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale University schoolmate of Kavanaugh's who said he exposed himself to her during a party during the 1983-84 academic year.

Swetnick, who has had a lengthy career working with federal agencies like the Departments of Treasure and Homeland Security, alleges that she saw Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge "drink excessively and engage in highly inappropriate conduct".

Ford said she was able to escape when Judge jumped on top of all of them, sending all three tumbling.

Wilkinson said Wednesday: "If this is going to be the standard for how we judge somebody going into public service, I don't know why anyone in their right mind would want to go through something like this". However, she then suggested that Swetnick's allegation of sexual assault isn't believable because she didn't report it at the time.

Avenatti also represents adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, whom Trump gave hush money to over an alleged extramarital affair.

Real 'People's Vote' on Brexit would be general election - McDonnell
John McDonnell said the vote should "respect" the 2016 result and only be on the government's negotiated deal with Brussels. The motion being debated on Tuesday is far from a commitment from the leadership to back a second referendum.

"During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me", Swetnick says. "I was underneath one of them while the two laughed".

While talking with the press after arriving at the United Nations, Trump lamented that the GOP had been so accommodating to Ford instead of putting Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court without hearing her testimony.

Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, posted the declaration on Twitter and provided it to the committee.

"In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these "gang" or "train" rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present", she added.

Ford and Kavanaugh are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on her allegation on Thursday. I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking.

In his written remarks, Kavanaugh calls the scandal "grotesque" and an "obvious character assassination".

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison
The classification means that Cosby must undergo monthly counseling for the rest of his life and report quarterly to authorities. Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele rejected the notion that "age, infirmity, should somehow equate to mercy".

Regarding Ford's allegation, Kavanaugh said it was "completely false".

Kavanaugh has emphatically denied the allegations.

The Senate Judiciary Committee said Wednesday it is reviewing new allegations after attorney Michael Avenatti provided a statement from his client to the committee.

Judge, a conservative author and journalist who was Kavanaugh's classmate at Georgetown Prep high school, had no immediate comment on Swetnick's statement.

Detailed on the five pages of Kavanaugh's calendars for the summer of 1982 are many typical summer activities for a high school student.

She said that Kavanaugh's declaration of "innocence" and lack of sexual inactivity in high school on Fox News is a lie.
