Trump defends court nominee - 'I am with him all the way'

Ramirez recalled that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away, the magazine reported. "I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh".

"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man", White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said.

Senate Democrats are reportedly investigating the allegations from Ramirez, and the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein, has called for Kavanaugh's nomination to be delayed.

The agreement and the latest accusation set the stage for a dramatic showdown as Kavanaugh and Ford each tell their side of the story. Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono, who confirmed receipt of the allegations to the New Yorker, also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It had seemed assured before Ms Ford, a 51-year-old California college professor, went public a week ago with her allegation that Mr Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party when they were in high school.

In a speech on the Senate floor, McConnell echoed Kavanaugh's own line, repeatedly calling the allegations a "smear campaign".

"Before the week is out, both Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford will testify under oath before the Judiciary Committee", said the Senate Majority Leader.

The Associated Press tried reaching Ramirez at her home in Boulder, Colo. In a weird turn, one of those allies, the conservative legal analyst Edward Whelan, posted pictures on Twitter Thursday night of a high school classmate of Kavanaugh's - with the man's name - and suggested he was responsible for the assault.

Bailey made 91.2 percent of his kicks in indoor/domed stadiums and has never missed a point after attempt in 145 tries at home. To make room on the roster, the Vikings also waived wide receiver Stacy Coley.

The one witness whom Ford said was in the room when the alleged misconduct took place (Mark Judge) denies it happened.

At about the same time, Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who rose to fame by aggressively taking on President Donald Trump on behalf of his client Stormy Daniels, tweeted that he had another woman with an allegation who will be demanding that Kavanaugh's nomination be withdrawn.

Ford's lawyers asked for another day.

"It's not surprising that Ms. Keyser has no recollection of the evening as they did not discuss it".

"There's a chance this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate", Trump said Monday, after leaving United Nations Headquarters in NY, which is holding a General Assembly meeting this week.

The lawyer acknowledged to CNN that Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford's. Since then, her lawyers and committee staff have been negotiating the conditions of her testimony. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. California's Diane Feinstein, the committee's top Democrat, sent a letter Sunday to Republican chairman Chuck Grassley urging him to refer the new allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in order to ensure "a fair, independent process that will gather all the facts". Ramirez asked that the FBI investigate her story saying, "At least look at it".

Republican Jason Miller, a former Trump spokesman and freshly disappeared CNN contributor, is now denying allegations in a court filing that he slipped an abortion pill into a mistress's drink.
