New accuser told classmates she wasn't sure Kavanaugh exposed himself

PONNURU: Gender gap not necessarily bad news for Republicans Committee contacts Ford's friend about party; 'she has no recollection' of it, lawyer says

But the person who Ramirez says egged Kavanaugh on denies even remembering the party and says he doesn't think Kavanaugh would flash anyone.

Conway said: "Are we going to put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man's shoulders?"

Ford and Kavanaugh have agreed to testify, although Sen.

Kavanaugh's confirmation would cement conservative control of the Supreme Court and advance Trump's goal of moving the high court and the broader federal judiciary to the right.

The judiciary panel said it had talked to three other people who Ms Ford has told The Washington Post were at the party where the alleged assault took place - Mark Judge, Patrick J Smyth and Leland Ingham Keyser.

The woman, Deborah Ramirez, was a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale.

Ramirez admitted to the New Yorker that there are gaps in her memory of the incident, and that she expects her memories to be questioned as she had been under the influence of alcohol. "This 35-year-old uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear a good man down", said Kupec.

Hartmann said the committee would begin "looking into the allegations" but would not commit to calling in additional witnesses for the hearing.

That's a "blunt" and "unequivocal" denial, George Stephanopoulos told Farrow on Monday's Good Morning America.

Trump also doubled down on his belief that the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh are suspect as they were not reported earlier.

Republicans are frustrated over what they say was the deliberate timing of the last-minute revelation of Ford's allegation, accusing Democrats of seeking to prevent the process from finishing before the midterm elections in a few weeks.

Ronan Farrow defended his Sunday night New Yorker report of a second woman alleging sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She claims Kavanaugh thrust his penis into her face at the party, causing her to inadvertently touch it as she pushed him away. That's according to a White House official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the office was not authorized to speak publicly.

That reflected a growing sentiment in the West Wing: that delays in the process have allowed more time to produce additional politically motivated decades-old allegations meant to sully Kavanaugh's reputation, the official said.

"No innuendo has been too low, no insinuation too dirty", Hatch said in a statement, adding that the committee should proceed with its scheduled Thursday hearing to hear testimony from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor who accused him of sexual assault in 1982.

Hours later, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the committee's top Democrat, requested "an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh" in order to assess the new allegations. Kavanaugh denies the claim. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, told the New Yorker.
