Trump wavers on U.S. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh

Watch live at 10 a.m.: Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. She is said to have talked about the assault during a 2012 couple's therapy session, well before Kavanaugh was a nominee for the nation's highest court.

Of Ramirez, Feinstein said: 'She was at a college party where Kavanaugh exposed himself to her'.

On numerous occasions at these parties, I witnessed Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh drink excessively and engage in highly inappropriate conduct, including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking "No" for an answer. "It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me". She planned to continue following the hearing because she wanted to hear what Kavanaugh, who has denied the allegations, had to say.

"I believed he was going to rape me", Ford is expected to say, according to testimony released Wednesday by her attorney, Debra S. Katz.

Swetnick is the third woman to come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.

The comment came during an hour-long press conference in which Trump looked ahead to Thursday's hearing featuring Kavanaugh and one of his three accusers.

Mr Trump said he was sceptical because he personally had been the target of "false statements" in the past made by various women. And I just wanted to let you know, I'm very sorry.

While Republicans want to move forward, they are mindful of the fallout if they do not take the accusations seriously.

Kavanaugh then was asked about, and categorically denied, an allegation made by a Rhode Island man - whose name was redacted from the transcript - raised in a call to Rhode Island Democratic Sen.

"It's a big, fat con job", he said. The talks are a safe space for employees to express themselves, though they are encouraged to keep their conversations work appropriate, Armsey said.

After committee chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen.

The woman who sent the complaint said that when the group left the bar, Kavanaugh shocked the group by shoving a woman against a wall "very aggressively and sexually" while he was drunk.

Kavanaugh described Swetnick's accusations as "ridiculous", adding "I don't know who this is and this never happened". "I am terrified", she adds. Dr. Ford, for instance, could pass the test if she reasonably believed she was the victim of a sexual assault, but it may or may not involve Brett Kavanaugh - it depends entirely on Dr. Ford's personal recollection of the incident.

In a story published by The Washington Post on September 16, Ford said there were four boys at the party but only two - Kavanaugh and his friend Mike Judge - in the room at the time of the alleged assault. "I wish that dang prosecutor would say, 'Listen, I need more than five minutes, and I could take her to the woodshed'". Judge is a boyhood friend of Kavanaugh who has written a book describing the debauchery of his high school years. That means that a handful of moderate Republican senators who have not announced whether or not they support Kavanaugh could determine his fate.
