  • Hollywood shows solidarity with Kavanaugh accuser Ford in walkout

The second woman, Deborah Ramirez, has accused Judge Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a Yale dormitory party, putting his penis in her face and causing her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.

"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man", White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said. Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify on Thursday. Kavanaugh denies the accusation. A handful of senators in both parties remain undecided on his nomination.

California professor Christine Blasey Ford claims Kavanaugh attempted to force himself on her at a party in high school when they were teenagers.

In a statement obtained by Fox News, Kavanaugh calls Ramirez's allegation as a "smear". He tweeted that "if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities".

"She has agreed to move forward with a hearing even though the Committee has refused to subpoena Mark Judge", it said.

Ford wrote the letter to Grassley on September 22, while she was still in ongoing negotiations with the Republican-led committee to testify against Kavanaugh. It has also forced the White House and Senate Republicans onto the defensive and fueled calls from Democrats to postpone further action on his confirmation. The counsel said it was the committee's "non-negotiable" right to determine who would be allowed to testify. The 11 senators on the GOP side of the dais are all men, which could send an unwanted message on live television against the backdrop of the #MeToo era. "The article reports that Democratic staff were aware of these allegations, but they never informed Republican staff". Ford's attorneys have said their client wants senators to ask the questions.

She said through "gracious persons here and across the country, we have been able to afford hiring security" for protection.

The 53-year-old complainant said she had attended Yale University with Kavanaugh, The New Yorker reported on Sunday.

There's a number of people, including people on the record, who learned about this at the time.

"We reached out to former Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett, who then met with Ms. Ramirez to work through how to analyze and present her allegations", Beckham said.

"If they continue to contest those two things, there won't be a hearing", Graham said.

Conway said: "Are we going to put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man's shoulders?" "I hope she comes". Senate Republicans should stand up to these unsubstantiated and discredited allegations and move forward with a vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton also criticized the accusations, saying Democrats "are engaged in a campaign of delay and character assassination against Judge Kavanaugh". Judge has told the committee he does not recall the incident.

MacCallum said Kavanaugh told her he wanted to take the opportunity to "clear his name" amid sexual misconduct allegations. But Durbin left little doubt that that Democrats will go after Kavanaugh's drinking history to help shed light on the matter. He said that in the near future Kavanaugh "will be voted on here on the Senate floor, up or down".

"The Republican viewpoint is that the left is trying to create a pattern of sexual misconduct in order to make him radioactive", the source said. Kavanaugh wouldn't comment on the quality of the magazine's reporting, but made some claims that the New Yorker reporters, veteran investigative journalists Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow, disputed on Twitter.

"There is one simple way to get to the bottom of this", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said. The centrist Republican did not, however, call on Ramirez to testify in public, as she had done with Blasey last week. Sen.

Republicans stepped up their attempts to discredit Ford's story. He has also said that the absence of a note on his 1982 calendar about the party at which he allegedly assaulted Blasey Ford backed up his denial.
