Sen. Diane Feinstein D-Calif. released a cryptic statement concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee seek to delay his confirmation

AP source: Kavanaugh, Ford agree to testify on Thursday

In a statement provided by the White House, Kavanaugh said the event "did not happen" and that the allegation was "a smear, plain and simple".

"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man". Because it would have happened a year after the now-famous house party described by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

President Donald Trump on Monday defended his U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after a second woman came forward with an allegation of sexual misconduct against the judge that has further complicated his confirmation prospects in the Senate.

The New Yorker published a story on Sunday night in which Deborah Ramirez, a college classmate of Brett Kavanaugh's, claims that Kavanaugh exposed himself during a party during their freshman year at Yale.

The woman, Deborah Ramirez, was a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale.

Keyser is the latest person alleged to be at the party to say she has no recollection of it.

The White House remained firmly behind Kavanaugh Monday and planned an aggressive defense, said a White House official not authorized to speak publicly, who stressed the lack of corroborating evidence.

Internal emails between lawyers for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has said Kavanaugh assaulted her, show a standoff about the conditions for Ford's testimony.

The two sides finalized the date and time of the hearing over email.

"Her name is Elizabeth Rasor, and she was at Catholic University with (Judge), and she said, "I feel a moral obligation to correct the record here, '" Mayer said, paraphrasing her source". He did not offer any evidence, except to cite the New Yorker report that the committee's Democratic staff were made aware of the allegations. Chuck Grassley, and asked that the new allegation be referred to the FBI for investigation.

Ford's agreement to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee came a week after she went public in an interview in the Washington Post with her allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when both were high school students in Maryland.

Spokesman Taylor Foy said the panel is looking into it.

The three lawyers are not pleased with but agree to the committee's decision not to call any other witnesses.

Several rights groups have called for the suspension of Kavanaugh's confirmation process or the withdrawal of his nomination.

Judge has denied having any memory of such an incident and said he did not want to testify.

The allegation is denied by Kavanaugh and all others who both were alleged by Ramirez to have been at the party and spoke to the New Yorker. The two sides agreed to give equal time to all senators who wish to question Ford and to allow "adequate breaks" during the hearing. "It was a story that was known, but it was a story that i was embarrassed about", she admitted.

But he adds that "unless there's something more" to back up her accusation, he's "not going to ruin Judge Kavanaugh's life over this".

The new claim came hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee agreed to a hearing on Thursday after almost a week of uncertainty over whether Christine Blasey Ford would appear to testify about her earlier claim against Mr Kavanaugh.

Durbin indicated that Democrats are likely to ask about Kavanaugh's drinking history because Ford has alleged Kavanaugh was "stumbling drunk" when it happened.

The president is spending most of the week in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly. Kavanaugh deinied the latest allegation. "We should look into the lawyers doing the representation".
