Kavanaugh tells US senators he will not withdraw nomination

McConnell calls Trump on Kavanaugh accuser tweets

McConnell calls Trump on Kavanaugh accuser tweets

President Donald Trump is not abandoning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying the sexual assault allegations Kavanaugh faces are "totally political".

President Trump recently praised Kavanaugh amid the new sexual assault allegations, calling him a "fine man with an unblemished past".

"Yet again, Senate Democrats actively withheld information from the rest of the Committee only to drop information at politically opportune moments", the statement said, doubling down on his remarks that Democrats withheld the first allegation against Kavanaugh from Christine Blasey Ford, who went public last week. Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify on Thursday.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations by Ford and Ramirez.

Democrats called for the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's claims, a request that was unlikely to be met as President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have said it is unnecessary.

The allegations, dating back to the 1980s, have put in jeopardy Kavanaugh's chances of winning confirmation to the top US court in a Senate narrowly controlled by Trump's party, with high-stakes congressional elections just weeks away.

"What we are witnessing is the total collapse of the traditional confirmation process for a Supreme Court nominee". He also added that trains were being ran when Kavanaugh was present.

"It is not accurate to say that those who knew him at the time dispute this", Farrow said on ABC.

In a story Sunday, The New Yorker says Deborah Ramirez recalled Kavanaugh exposing himself at a drunken dormitory party.

Russian Federation to supply Syria with missile system
Russian officials said the move is part of President Putin's plan to bolster security for Russian troops in Syria. Bolton said a political process was needed but said Russia's plans on the missile system made that hard .

White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said after publication of the story: "This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man". But after consultation with a lawyer, Ramirez told the magazine she felt confident enough in her recollection that it happened. As she said point blank: "'I don't want to ruin anyone's life'".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, called for the "immediate postponement" of any further action on Kavanaugh's nomination.

They said in the statement that Ramirez never described the incident until after Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court. Spokesman Taylor Foy said the panel is looking into it.

Ford claimed that during her high school years, Kavanaugh, along with another Georgetown Prep student at the time, cornered her in a room at a party.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway held a conference call with supporters during which she said there was a "vast left-wing conspiracy" to prevent Kavanaugh from winning confirmation, according to a participant who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the private call.

That declaration, remarkable for a nominee to the nation's highest court, came as Republicans embraced their newly aggressive stance and Kavanaugh's prospects dangled precariously.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wrangled with Ford's lawyers for the last week over the exact terms of her appearance. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to have the FBI investigate the allegations of both Ford and Ramirez.

Regarding Ford's allegation, along with Kavaugh, two of the witnesses Ford has named regarding the alleged 1982 event in Maryland when both were in high school deny they were at any such party.
