Trump Defends Kavanaugh in Wake of Additional Allegations

Ford supporters submit affidavits saying she told them about Kavanaugh sexual assault years ago

"I want to watch", Mr Trump said ahead of the hearing featuring Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor who has accused Mr Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers.

He added: "It's possible that I'll hear that and I'll say I'm changing my mind".

"It's happened to me many times". Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep. That alleged incident also occurred while Kavanaugh was intoxicated, the report said. She did not claim that Judge Kavanaugh took part or was aware of her rape, but said that he and other boys in his circle engaged in similar behaviour. "So women nowadays are not silent about bad behavior", she said.

Support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has fallen to its lowest levels since President Donald Trump announced the pick in July - and Republican women are a key reason for that.

"Every woman of my vintage has not just one story but many stories, but we thought there was nothing you could do about it - boys will be boys - so just find a way to get out of it", said Ginsburg, 85.

"Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

Mr Kavanaugh denies all charges against him, and is set to testify on Thursday to the Senate Judiciary Committee about some of the claims.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) said Wednesday that he has about 20 staff members talking to witnesses and gathering evidence, including federal agents on detail from Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives.

But Republicans have resolutely rejected reopening Mr. Kavanaugh's FBI background investigation. "They're obstructionists. They're actually con artists", Trump said, accusing the party of "smearing" Kavanaugh and his family.

Ramirez went public with allegations that while in his first year at Yale University, Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh placed his penis in front of her and caused her to involuntarily touch it during a drunken dormitory party.

Julie Swetnick said in a statement released by her lawyer that the events took place at parties she attended while a high school student in suburban Maryland.

The committee also released a two-page prepared statement from Kavanaugh for Thursday's hearing in which he "categorically and unequivocably" denies Ford's allegation.

At the end of the ad, they quote Anita Hill, who said, "There is no way to redo 1991, but there are ways to do better".

Avenatti also represents Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who alleges she was paid to keep a sexual relationship with US President Donald Trump quiet.
