Kavanaugh and Ford: Americans Are Undecided on Who's Telling the Truth

Senate Democrats are also investigating a second allegation of sexual misconduct by a woman who was classmates with Kavanaugh at Yale.

In response to Trump's comments, Ramirez's attorney John Clune told CNN that "politicians are going to say what they want to say but that doesn't mean what Debbie disclosed is not true".

Here's a look at the statements, signed this week, that are certain to play a key role in Thursday's committee hearing where she and Kavanaugh are expected to testify separately. "In our 16 years of marriage I have always known Christine to be truthful person of great integrity".

"It's very important to take allegations of those who come forward seriously, and I think we need to go into this hearing with the view that we will listen", she said.

The front of Kavanaugh's 1982 calendar is filled with doodles of stars. On June 12, penciled in is his plan to spend the night in Rehoboth, a beach about three hours from Washington.

She did not identify the individuals directly involved in those assaults. He ended up attending that Ivy League School. "I've never sexually assaulted anyone". Another committee spokesman, Taylor Foy, said the panel received Swetnick's declaration Wednesday and "committee lawyers are in the process of reviewing it now".

Koegler says Ford was "particularly bothered by it because she was assaulted in high school by a man who was now a federal judge in Washington, D.C".

"During our meal, Christine was visibly upset, so I asked her what was going on", Gildo-Mazzon wrote. Kavanaugh denied the allegation Tuesday in a phone call with committee staff members.

Now, after more than a week of public and contentious negotiations between Ford's lawyers and Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the judge and the professor accusing him are slated to testify.

The allegations have risked endangering Kavanaugh's chances of confirmation in the Senate, which Trump's fellow Republicans control by a narrow 51-49 margin.

"However, in the end she believed her civic duty required her to speak out", Russell Ford said.

Ramirez told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while they were both students at Yale. She said she has a "firm recollection of boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room".

President Donald Trump says he would have preferred a faster confirmation process for his Supreme Court nominee.

Collins said she remained undecided about Kavanaugh, a judge on the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals.

"I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter", Kavanaugh said.

The powerful and well-funded conservative movement has launched into overdrive to rescue the Supreme Court nomination of Brett M. Kavanaugh, decrying the sexual assault allegations against him as unfounded and warning Republicans that buckling to Democratic pressure would undermine voter enthusiasm weeks before the midterm elections.

Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley, spoke to media for the first time about the allegations in an interview with the Fox News Channel's Martha MacCallum on Monday.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the accusation.

While little has been reported yet about the background of Mitchell, the female prosecutor who has worked for almost thirty years in the Maricopa County prosecutors office and now brought in to cross-examine Ford so that the male members of the committee don't have to, the New York Times noted in its roundup of her career, "Yes, that is the very same Maricopa County where Joe Arpaio was sheriff from 1993 to 2017".

Independent to whether Ford is telling the truth, however, 43% oppose Kavanaugh's nomination, while 38% support it.
