New allegation of drunken assault surfaces against Kavanaugh

It's possible they will be convincing. "I could be persuaded".

A new accuser against Brett Kavanaugh said the Supreme Court nominee took part in efforts during high school to get girls intoxicated so that a group of boys could have sex with them.

Here's a look at the federal appeals court judge's accusers and the reactions to their allegations.

Ford went public with her allegations against Kavanaugh on September 16, after Sen.

Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, said a drunken Kavanaugh attacked her and tried to remove her clothing at a gathering of teenagers in Maryland when he was 17 years old and she was 15. Mrs Ford claims that a friend of Mr Kavanaugh's, Mark Judge, was in the room and that he eventually jumped on them, allowing her to flee the room.

"No it's - all we have is what I read", the investigator said.

Kavanaugh denies the allegation, and both are testifying in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. I never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes.

"I've had a lot of false charges made against me", he said.

Careful not to alienate female voters ahead of the November mid-term elections, Trump has been relatively measured in his responses to the allegations against his nominee.

Kavanaugh and Ford were the only witnesses invited to testify before the panel.

Ford says she doesn't have the answers to all the questions she know will be asked about that night and says she doesn't remember everything. But, he said, the issue is a "moot point" because the committee has not invited her to speak. She claimed that he thrust his penis into her face and forced her to touch it when she pushed it away.

Kavanaugh, 53, has vehemently denied the accusation.

"A trauma survivor can not be expected to remember every painful detail", said Sen. This is a smear, plain and simple.

The US President has also a few times asserted the allegations are false.

"The second accuser has nothing", he said.

She alleges he exposed his genitals in her face during a drinking game at a college dormitory party - causing her to make contact with them as she tried to push him away.

She said she saw Mr Kavanaugh behave as a "mean drunk" at the parties. She admits that there were time lapses.

Kavanaugh also sent in a 1982 calendar, attempting to show he wasn't present at the party where the alleged assault happened.

Trump said he would watch the testimony from Kavanaugh and Ford. Kavanaugh rejected the latest claim Wednesday as "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

The complainant said the writer's daughter and several friends were with Kavanaugh in 1998 when Kavanaugh assaulted a woman he was dating, who was a friend of the person's daughter. "People want fame, they want money, whatever".

William Treanor, the dean of Georgetown Law School who served as the moderator, did not directly ask Ginsburg about the Kavanaugh allegations. "The accusations brought against Judge Kavanaugh are sickening and deserve an independent investigation", Baker wrote.
