White House says it is open to testimony from second Kavanaugh accuser

BelieveWomen

Trump added that Democrats were inept at everything except for obstructing Republicans' work and leveling false allegations at them, and expressed concern that the Kavanaugh saga might dissuade people from pursuing careers in public service.

Kavanaugh's TV appearance came three days before a crucial Senate Judiciary Committee hearing at which he and his chief accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, were slated to testify. He declined to provide the attorney's name.

"I'm going to be honest: As a man, I haven't always treated women with dignity and respect, so I'm not trying to throw the first stone", Noah said.

"I think we ought to take everyone seriously", McConnell said, defending the decision to hire a yet-unnamed female staffer to question Ford.

Ford has said that Kavanaugh drunkenly groped her, held her down against her will and tried to rape her when they were teenagers in suburban Washington, D.C.

Deborah Ramirez, however, declined to appear before the Senate, where she would have to make a statement on penalty of perjury. Kavanaugh again denied the allegations.

Ford's legal team on Monday had objected to the possibility Republicans would use an outside lawyer to question her.

Hoping the hearing will yield no new surprises, the Judiciary Committee scheduled its own vote on Kavanaugh for Friday, and Republican leaders laid plans that could keep the full Senate in session over the weekend and produce a final showdown roll call soon after - close to the October 1 start of the high court's new term. "I don't mean, 'Oh gee, I am a little unhappy.' They are devastated", he said earlier on Tuesday. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican. That session loomed as a do-or-die wild card for Kavanaugh in which a split-second facial expression, a tear or a choice of words could prove decisive.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is expected to get a committee vote this week, in the face of accusations of sexual misconduct - including one from a Coloradan.

Sen. Susan Collins of ME, one of the undecided Republicans, said she will be "glued to the television" during the hearing.

After Trump lashed out at Ford on Friday, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was clearly leaning toward supporting Kavanaugh.

"She told me that when she was a young teen, she had been sexually assaulted by an older teen", White says.

Ramirez, 53, is a former Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh's and his second accuser of sexual assault. She has acknowledged that there were "significant gaps" in her memory of that party.

"It wouldn't surprise me if she would agree to do that", he said.

Trump called it a ' con game being played by Democrats'. "This is a high-quality person, and it would be a disgusting insult to our country if this doesn't happen".

Democrats are demanding the hearing be put off so that the FBI can investigate the two women's claims.

"Women and their experiences are not just things to plowed through", Sen. "They know he's high quality", he said about the Democrats. "Women are paying attention".

"What am I supposed to do, go ahead and ruin this guy's life based on an accusation?" he said Sunday in a Fox News interview. He's denied those allegations.

"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. A second woman accused Kavanaugh of another assault dating to his first year at Yale University. Trump dismissed her as part of a Democratic-led "con job" to keep Kavanaugh off the bench.
