Trump calls allegations against his court nominee a 'con game'

Avenatti Says New Kavanaugh Accuser is Prepared to Testify that He Participated in the 'Targeting of Women with Alcohol'

The move brought a rebuke from Senator Kamala Harris, a Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee.

Kavanaugh has denied Ford's claim and that of another woman who has come forward with an allegation from his time at Yale.

If Kavanaugh's nomination is approved by the committee, it would be brought to the Senate floor, where a vote in the full chamber would determine if he secures a position on the Supreme Court following accusations of inappropriate sexual conduct and a contentious review of his judicial philosophy and career.

"I'm not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process".

The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford is still set for Thursday, though Ford's legal team yesterday raised objections to the committee's plans for questioning. A week later, The New Yorker published Ramirez's accusations, in which she alleges Kavanaugh exposed himself during a drunken dormitory party.

"It's a con game", Trump said.

While he did not witness the incident alleged by Ramirez, Roche said Kavanaugh and his social circle "were capable" of such actions. "She was totally messed up".

Trump blasted Democrats and accused them of "playing a con game" in order to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Just hours later, The New Yorker dropped a new bombshell, reporting that a second woman was accusing the Washington appeals court judge of sexual misconduct, while they were students at Yale University around 1983-84.

Kavanaugh was a "notably heavy drinker" in school who "became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk", Roche said.

The Kavanaugh confirmation fight comes just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans, against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault.

Kavanaugh, a judicial conservative and Trump's second Supreme Court pick, was nominated to fill the vacancy created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement.

In a defiant letter to leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh said he would "not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process".

Comments by Murkowski on Tuesday after she met with McConnell could be an ominous sign for Kavanaugh.

"Are there reasons - other than strategic advantage and unfair surprise - that you will not tell us the name of the experienced sex crimes prosecutor?" "The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh".

"We have hired a female assistant to go on staff and to ask these questions in a respectful and professional way", McConnell said.

Democrats continued to seek an FBI investigation of the two women's allegations, which would take several days in each case.

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. Not in high school, not ever.
