Court Nominee Kavanaugh Is Victim of `MeToo' Fervor, Conway Says


"The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh".

"What we are witnessing is the total collapse of the traditional confirmation process for a Supreme Court nominee".

'We did receive, however, several direct accounts from people who said they were told right after or saw her describing it right after, and who independently of Ms. Ramirez had the same fact pattern about Kavanaugh doing this, ' Farrow told CNN. The two of them are tentatively scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. "This is a smear, plain and simple". Ford had written a letter to a California lawmaker about the claim months ago that was passed to Feinstein, but had requested anonymity, and Feinstein said she was trying to honor that.

In a story posted Sunday night on its website, The New Yorker reports that the claim dates to the 1983-84 academic year, Kavanaugh's freshman year at Yale University. She added that the second woman, who alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at Yale, is welcome to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

David Young, and Gov. Kim Reynolds, rallied the almost 700 Christians in the crowd behind Kavanaugh, the Des Moines Register reported, as Iowa's senior senator, Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley, negotiates the conditions of a public hearing this Thursday with the nominee's accuser, California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford.

Joining the maelstrom, Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in her legal fight with Trump, claimed to represent a woman with information about high school-era parties attended by Kavanaugh and urged the Senate to investigate.

Ramirez says she grew increasingly intoxicated as the game wore on, and that eventually one of the young men exposed himself to her.

Conway said she has "no idea" if Ramirez made up her accusation. "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 - against these last-minute allegations".

A second allegation of sexual misconduct has emerged against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a development that has further imperiled his nomination to the Supreme Court.

The claim comes on the heels of weeks of controversy surrounding a claim from another woman, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, that Kavanaugh assualted her in high school. She said that she pushed the person away, touching it in the process. "I remember a penis being in front of my face", she told the magazine.

USA customs officials were called to the scene, and authorities say 540 packages of cocaine were found in 45 boxes of bananas. But when corrections officers were unloading the boxes, one of the officers "discovered something not quite right".
