Trump Accidentally Tweets That Dems Are Pushing ‘False Acquisitions’ Against Kavanaugh

The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. "It is being replaced by a game of delay, deception, and wholesale character assassination".
Kavanaugh reiterated that he won't bow out in an interview with Fox News scheduled to air Monday night. "I'm not going anywhere". "The network released excerpts in advance".
The claim comes on the heels of weeks of controversy surrounding a claim from another woman, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, that Kavanaugh assualted her in high school. He said he did not question that perhaps Ms. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted, "but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone". Some prominent Republicans have indicated that they plan to back Trump's nominee regardless of the hearing's outcome.
Kavanaugh, now an appeals court judge in Washington, said no witnesses have supported the allegations and called them a "grotesque and obvious character assassination".
"I have never had any sexual or physical activity with Dr. Ford", Judge Kavanaugh said.
About Ramirez's claim, which allegedly took place at Yale, Kavanaugh twice said it would have been the "talk of campus" if it had actually happened. He accused them of launching "This shameful, shameful smear campaign". He strongly defended Kavanaugh and vowed that this "fine nominee" will receive a vote in the Senate.
Senate Democrats are now investigating a bombshell claim by Ms Deborah Ramirez, 53, who says Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a 1980s college party at Yale University, thrust his genitals in her face and caused her to touch them without her consent, according to The New Yorker.
On Sunday, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the judiciary committee, urged the panel to halt proceedings in light of the latest allegation.
Ford's agreement to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee came a week after she went public in an interview in the Washington Post with her allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when both were high school students in Maryland.
"I'm not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process", he added, repeatedly calling for a "fair process". "I thought that knowledge of his actions could be useful for you and those in charge of choosing among the various candidates".
Ford is set to testify at a Senate hearing on Thursday. The move is without parallel, as every Supreme Court nominee in recent memory has avoided media interviews during the Senate confirmation process. And over the weekend, Senator Lindsey Graham of SC signaled that he was unlikely to be moved by Ford's testimony. "I think the whole thing is a pretty major mess at this stage".
He said he "did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter".
The president showed no initial sign of wanting to walk away from Kavanaugh and expressed frustration that the confirmation process has not moved more quickly.
Others leaders in entertainment moved to believe survivors, too, with the staff of TBS's Full Frontal with Samantha Bee participating in the walkout, along with the production crew for Grey's Anatomy.
The allegations, dating back to the 1980s, have put in jeopardy Kavanaugh's chances of winning confirmation to the top USA court in a Senate narrowly controlled by Trump's party, with high-stakes congressional elections just weeks away. The complainant said she wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct inquiries.
Ramirez noted that she was initially hesitant to share her story due to gaps in her memory and is now doing so despite her belief that she will be questioned on her motivation for coming forward now as well as her memory due to her drinking at the event. "And at the end, the senators will make a choice". But after consulting a lawyer, she said she felt confident in her recollection. "Senate Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man's personal and professional life on the basis of decades old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncorroborated", said McConnell.
