Christine Blasey Ford to testify Thursday about Kavanaugh sexual assault allegations

Though she told the New Yorker she was not "politically motivated" to share her story, the RNC presented other details that, they think, call this into question.

Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge strenuously denied Ford's accusations, insisting that her allegations were "just absolutely nuts. This is a smear, plain and simple", said Judge Kavanaugh.

Senate Democrats are investigating a new allegation of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, according to a bombshell report in The New Yorker on Sunday. The two incidents are alleged to have occurred within just a few years of one another.

Kavanaugh has denied sexually abusing anyone at any time in his life.

U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley had set a Saturday afternoon deadline for Ford to decide whether and how she will testify.

President Trump on Friday called Kavanaugh a "fantastic man" who was "under assault by radical left-wing politicians".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the committee's top Democrat, wrote a letter to Grassley on Sunday asking to stop the confirmation process. Grassley agreed to several items, including postponing the hearing by three days, ensuring Ford's safety, and not having Kavanaugh in the same room during her testimony.

The report comes less than a week before Christine Blasey Ford is slated to testify in open court about her allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh appeared on a likely path to confirmation in a Senate controlled by the GOP 51-49 until Ford's allegation came to light on September 13, when Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein of California told the Federal Bureau of Investigation about unspecified information she received in July about the nominee.

Wallace corrected that statement at the end of the interview, saying that "there is no statute of limitations on sex assault cases in Maryland, so there are weaknesses with the case, obviously, but she could legally bring it".

Senior Republican staffers have likewise learned of the allegation and expressed concern about its impact on the nomination, The New Yorker added.

Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, said on "Fox News Sunday" said he wouldn't vote against Kavanaugh without additional evidence."Unless there's something more, no, I'm not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this", he said.

Sources say Gronkowski's position was more related to not wanting to leave the Patriots rather than play for the Lions . Gronkowski led the Patriots with 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns previous year across 14 games.

Spokesman Taylor Foy said the panel is looking into it. She can not recall the place or date, however, and appears to remember other key details such as who was present incorrectly.

In the email titled "what you need to know about the allegations made in The New Yorker article about Judge Brett Kavanaugh", the White House noted that Ramirez took six days of "assessing her memories" and consulting with an attorney before accusing Kavanaugh.

Ramirez details a dorm-room party she attended at Yale, during which partygoers were drinking.

Up until now, I've avoided any direct accusation of mendacity on the part of Christine Blasey Ford, though the incredibly convenient timing of the release of this information made it tempting.

As a result, the committee postponed the vote on Justice Kavanaugh's nomination, previously scheduled for Monday. Kennedy was the frequently the court's swing vote.

Howard Walsh, Keyser's attorney, responded, "Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford".

White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec blamed Democrats for the latest allegation.

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec dismissed Ramirez's allegation as "the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

The White House is casting doubt on the willingness of a college professor to speak publicly about her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The White House has called Kavanaugh's character and legal qualifications impeccable. Kavanaugh, an appellate court judge, denied the allegation and said he wanted to testify as soon as possible to clear his name.

"Enough is enough", Fallon said in a statement.
