Trump Calls Kavanaugh 'Outstanding,' Dismissing Latest Sexual Misconduct Allegation

Kavanaugh denies the allegation.

In his speech, McConnell referenced the reluctance of the New York Times - a frequent punching bag for President Trump and conservative lawmakers - to print Ramirez's allegations. She claims that, after being egged on by another friend, Kavanaugh whipped out his penis, and waved it around in her face.

In a statement released Sunday, Kavanaugh called the Ramirez allegation a "smear, plain and simple", and added (accurately), "People who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so".

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement, "This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, immediately called for a postponement of Kavanaugh's nomination and called for the FBI to investigate both Ford and Ramirez's allegations.

"If and when they regain power, Democrats need to resume the full investigation into Kavanaugh's lying and alleged sexual abuse that Republicans have so far refused to conduct", he said.

Conway said, "I don't think one man's shoulders should bear decades of the #MeToo movement" that has toppled powerful men across industries over the a year ago. She also accused Kavanaugh of laughing at her in the aftermath and has said the FBI should investigate the incident.

A White House official seized on the article's mention that at least four Democratic senators received information about the allegation. The Democrats then began investigating.

But having spent six days assessing her memories and consulting her attorney, she felt more confident and was now calling for an FBI investigation.

Bennet's office told CBS4 that is is unclear whether Ramirez will have the opportunity to speak before the Senate Judiciary Committee but she is expected to speak in some manner this week. She posted a sign on her front door, indicating she has no comment.

She said on CBS "This Morning" that the allegations against Kavanaugh, now by a second woman, sound like a "vast left-wing conspiracy". Investigators elaborate, other than to say they are looking at allegations against Kavanaugh during his senior year in high school, based on an anonymous witness who came forward over the weekend.

Kavanaugh's nomination hangs precariously. Moreover, another witness, a lifelong friend of Ford's, not only can not remember the house party, she says she has never met Kavanaugh. They asked for the FBI to investigate the Ford allegation. After Kavanaugh's first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, shared her story, a number of Republican politicians stepped in it trying this strategy on Ford - including Trump himself, who questioned why Ford didn't immediately tell the authorities after the alleged assault. "Neither did (The New Yorker reporters)", he said. Deborah Ramirez alleges that an 18-year-old Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken 1983 dorm party at Yale. But after his confirmation hearings, I concluded I could not support him for the Supreme Court. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the matter.

He suggested that the confirmation process needs to move ahead with the hearing as now scheduled for Thursday with a final committee vote "soon thereafter".

It might be hard to remember this as Democrats and the media throw around phrases like "second accuser" and "attempted sexual assault" and "exposing himself" against the Supreme Court nominee.
