Brett Kavanaugh’s Fox News Interview Spoke Only to His Supporters

Dozens of angry protesters were arrested at the Capitol Hill offices of multiple senators as opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh grew

Democrats, who at the 11th hour brought up uncorroborated claims by two women of sexual harassment against U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, are playing a "con game", President Trump said Tuesday after his speech at the United Nations.

"I look 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 Supreme Court nominee said after The New Yorker magazine published the latest allegation of sexual assault against him.

Several Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have said they want to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination soon after the Thursday hearing.

Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, twice offered words of support for Kavanaugh while in NY to attend the U.N. General Assembly.

"I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place", he added.

Mr Kavanaugh said Dr Ford's friend does not remember being at a party with him, nor has anyone corroborated the accuser's story.

Trump continued. "And now a new charge comes up and she said, well, it might not be him, and there were gaps, and she said she was totally inebriated and she was all messed up and she doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him?"

The bishop has been charged under four counts including rape, illegal confinement and criminal intimidation. The Vatican's decision was welcomed by the nuns protesting against Mulakkal, reported PTI.

Trump also praised the judge, and accused Democrats of portraying Kavanaugh as someone he is not. President Donald Trump tweeted sarcastically last week that Ford would have reported the assault to authorities if the incident was "as bad as she says". Ford, a research psychologist in California, says Kavanaugh pinned her down and groped her at a high school party.

"I know he's going to stand by me", Mr Kavanaugh said.

Kavanaugh said he has faith in God and faith in the American people, looking ahead to the process before him.

"We certainly hope he's going to be confirmed, and quickly".

"In our view, the hiring of an unnamed 'experienced sex crimes prosecutor, ' as Mr. Davis described in his email, is contrary to the Majority's repeated emphasis on the need for the Senate and this Committee's members to fulfill their constitutional obligations".

MacCallum, at moments early in the interview, resembled less an interlocutor than a coach, moving Kavanaugh briskly along through moments in which he got bogged down.

Tuesday morning, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said "we would be open" to Ramirez testifying before the Senate Judiciary panel on Thursday. "They have also refused to invite other witnesses who are essential for a fair hearing that arrives at the truth about the sexual assault".

The next Echo Show now features a high-resolution 10-inch HD display, 8-microphone array, and powerful drivers for better sound. Amazon says the preferred method to hook up Echo Auto is via Bluetooth or an auxiliary jack, which many modern cars possess.

Confirmation of the federal appeals court judge to the lifetime job would cement conservative control of the Supreme Court and advance Trump's goal of moving the high court and the broader federal judiciary to the right.

Raminez, now 53, claims Kavanaugh "thrust his penis in her face and caused her to touch it without her consent" during a dorm party at Yale during the 1983/84 academic year.

Dr Ford said she is absolutely certain Mr Kavanaugh was her attacker.

Republicans have accused Democrats of a smear campaign by using the women's accusations of misconduct by Kavanaugh in high school and college to try to defeat his nomination.

Mormon Women for Ethical Government, which is not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said the allegations are serious and the Senate shouldn't rush Kavanaugh's vote.

Trump reserved most of his ire for the Democrats, whom he accused of playing a "very risky game" and hurting Kavanaugh's family.
