Trump voices frustration over Senate delays for Kavanaugh

Trump voices frustration over Senate delays for Kavanaugh”

"I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation against me by Dr. Ford", Kavanaugh said in the statement.

In a statement released by the White House, Kavanaugh said, "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. We'll wait to see if she gets that invitation and we'll go from there".

On Twitter, the president said that Mr Kavanaugh is "a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever".

Swetnick and Avenatti did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Swetnick says that in 1981 and 1982, she became aware of efforts by Judge, Kavanaugh and others to "spike the punch at house parties" so as to "cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'No'". She did not identify her attackers.

"I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room", she said.

SpaceX to announce private moon flight passenger
He also desires to take the artists with him to convert the entire trip into an art project that will be known as #dearMoon . Musk also anticipates SpaceX's Starlink satellite system to be operational by then, which he said will aid in the broadcast.

"I think her record stands for itself: Her schooling, her jobs and so on", he said. But he did say that that attorney Michael Avenatti, who is representing Kavanaugh's third accuser Julie Swetnick, is a "low-life".

Ramirez is the second woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Then there was Emily Doe, whose assailant Brock Turner spent only three months in jail despite being convicted for assaulting her while she was unconscious.

"That's totally false and outrageous", Kavanaugh said during an interview with Fox News' Martha McCallum this week. The controversy has unfolded ahead of the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats seek to take control from the Republicans.

It was an extraordinary appearance for a nominee to the nation's highest court, one no such nominee had done before.

"I can't tell you whether or not they're liars until I hear them", Trump said. Russell Wheeler, an expert on the judicial selection process at the Brookings Institution, said he was unaware of a similar media interview by a Supreme Court nominee in the past 100 years.

A spokesman for the Senate Judiciary Committee said lawyers for the panel were reviewing the declaration submitted by Swetnick, who said she has worked extensively for the federal government including the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service.

Butler asks for deal from Timberwolves
He informed Timberwolves president and coach Tom Thibodeau of the request during a meeting Tuesday in Los Angeles, sources said. Bovada released odds on where Butler will play his first game of the season, and the Heat did not make that eight-team list.

And here's a fun fact: Neither the Senate Judiciary Committee's Republican chairman nor its ranking member, a Democrat, are lawyers.

"This could go on forever", he said.

Ramirez's lawyer told NBC's Today show she is willing to testify publicly to Congress.

During a rare press conference Wednesday, President Trump sent mixed messages about the fate of his embattled his Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Washington Post congressional reporter Sean Sullivan joins CBSN with the latest developments.

Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate of Kavanuagh, claimed in a New Yorker article published Sunday, that he exposed himself to her at a college party although, The New Yorker acknowledges, she was initially "reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh's role in the alleged incident with certainty". Kavanaugh denied those allegations. It's happened to me many times. "I know friends that have had false charges".

A handful of undeclared GOP moderates leave Kavanaugh's fate uncertain because the party runs the Senate with just a 51-49 advantage.
