I will not be intimidated, says S/Court nominee Kavanaugh

Over the weekend, Dr. Ford reached a tentative deal to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

On Kavanaugh, Trump stressed: "I am with him all the way".

"These are smears, pure and simple".

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

That reflected a growing sentiment in the West Wing: that delays in the process have allowed more time to produce additional politically motivated decades-old allegations meant to sully Kavanaugh's reputation, the official said. As of Sunday evening, Trump had not spoken to Kavanaugh himself. She says she is willing to testify, but she says she still wants negotiations. Those calendars, he says, don't show a party consistent with Ford's description of the gathering in which she says he attacked her, The New York Times reported Sunday. After Kavanaugh's first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, shared her story, a number of Republican politicians stepped in it trying this strategy on Ford - including Trump himself, who questioned why Ford didn't immediately tell the authorities after the alleged assault.

The New Yorker added that it "has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party". The magazine said numerous people they contacted did not respond to interview requests, others declined to comment or said they did not attend or remember the party. The woman said Kavanaugh forced her to come in contact with his penis while both were inebriated at a party.

Mark Judge said, "I have no memory of the alleged incident".

The other male classmate Ramirez said was involved in the incident told the magazine, "I have zero recollection".

A second woman came forward in The New Yorker with allegations on Sunday. "This fine nominee to the Supreme Court will receive a vote, in this Senate, in the near future". Kavanaugh denies the claim. The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett. Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women.
