Trump defends court nominee: 'I am with him all the way'

It does not make clear whether Blasey, who has publicly accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school, plans to testify about Kavanaugh in an open hearing or intends to provide information in some other way.

Trump said Monday (Sept 24) that the charges against Kavanaugh were "totally political" and has described him as "one of the finest people".

Trump went on: "There's a chance that this could be one of the single-most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything but I am with Judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote".

A White House spokeswoman added in a second statement that the allegation was "designed to tear down a good man". "This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say".

After Bush moved into the White House in 2001, he recruited Kavanaugh as legal counsel before later naming him to the appellate court in 2003.

The Washington Post first reported on Whelan's tweets. But after "six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party".

The EPPC president and Kavanaugh ally came under fire earlier in the week after he posted a conspiracy theory on Twitter claiming Ford mixed up the nominee with another classmate. According to the New York Times, Ramirez told ex-classmates last week she wasn't certain Kavanaugh was the one who had exposed himself to her.

The report prompted Democratic Sen.

Ford's attorneys say that several requests they have made of the committee have been refused, such as calling additional witnesses who Ford remembers being at the party, and having the FBI investigate her story.

The newspaper reported that Whelan "has been involved in helping to advise Kavanaugh's confirmation effort and is close friends with both Kavanaugh and Leonard Leo, the head of the Federalist Society who has been helping to spearhead the nomination".

In requesting another day to decide, Ford lawyer Debra Katz late Friday called Grassley's original deadline "arbitrary" and said its "sole objective is to bully Dr. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family".

They could also use Republican staff attorneys on the committee. Republican committee staff and Ford's lawyers had reached a stalemate in negotiations over the details of the testimony. They noted that other witnesses are "essential for a fair hearing". "More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Ford describes".

In his statement Sunday, Kavanaugh said he is looking forward "to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name - and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building-against these last-minute allegations".

The choice of a new justice for the Supreme Court is pivotal, as it often gives the final word on highly contentious laws, with an vast impact on U.S. public life. She says he put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream.

Ms Ramirez said she was mocked and taunted when she remarked it wasn't real, and then ended up touching the genitals while attempting to push the man away.
