Trump questions credibility of second Kavanaugh accuser

"The goal should be to develop the relevant facts, not try a case".

The claims threaten to derail what was seen as an all-but-certain confirmation to the lifelong post on the USA top court.

Republicans hold a razor-thin 51-49 majority in the Senate and three Republican senators are being closely watched as potential opponents of Kavanaugh's nomination.

Minutes later, McConnell angrily declared on the Senate floor that Democrats have thrown "all the mud they could manufacture" at Kavanaugh. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who does not serve on the SJC, told reporters Tuesday afternoon that it would be unwise for male GOP senators to ask Ford questions directly during the hearing.

In a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), her legal team said it is "finding it hard to reconcile" his promise of a "fair and credible process" with everything we just outlined above.

Republicans have said they will not name the person they have hired.

"It's starting to feel like a vast left-wing conspiracy", said Kellyanne Conway.

But the allegations have left some Republican senators - especially two women who have spoken out in the past about sexual abuse of women - under pressure to weigh the accusers' stories.

All 11 Republicans on the Senate panel are men.

With pressure mounting to put Kavanaugh's nomination on hold for the FBI to investigate his past - a day after a second woman came forward to accuse him - Trump stood firmly behind his embattled nominee, blasting the allegations as "totally political". "Why won't the Senate Judiciary Committee welcome that?"

"We have officially requested an FBI investigation and our client remains adamant that is the appropriate venue for her to discuss her trauma", Clune tweeted.

Ford also wrote that she has hired security and has spent a "considerable time managing death threats". The account was published Sunday. "She thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not", the president said.

If they are not able to finish the game, then you will get top competitions in this league, said by the linebacker, Alec Ogletree. They have started making plans and on-field preparations for the Sunday game again the New York Giant at the Twickenham Stadium .

Trump blasted Democrats and accused them of "playing a con game" in order to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation.

A second woman has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, with an ex-classmate of Kavanaugh's from Yale accusing him of exposing himself to her at a party at the school. "And she was totally inebriated and all messed up, and she doesn't know", Trump said. He said rejecting Kavanaugh would be "a terrible insult" and "a very unsafe game" for the U.S. His accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will testify before him in the open session.

A lawyer for the second woman who publicly accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct said Tuesday night that the FBI must investigate the accusations of his client, Deborah Ramirez.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, called for the "immediate postponement" of any further action on Kavanaugh's nomination. So you're saying that because she was drunk it was her fault? "You, watching this as the president of a great country, Colombia, you must say, 'How is this possible - 36 years ago?"

After six days of assessing her memories and consulting her attorney, Ramirez told the news outlet that she felt confident about what Kavanaugh had done. Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations.

"We're going to be moving forward", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters. Let her say whatever she has to say.

But critics have accused Republicans of not completing a full examination of Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has denied he ever sexually assaulted any one.

Schumer, the minority leader, also says it is galling that McConnell is making charges of partisanship by Democrats.

The D.C. District Court judge went on Fox News and did an interview Monday evening with his wife, Ashley, by his side.

Both Ford and Ramirez want the FBI to investigate.
