I know my lifelong record, and I'm not going to let false accusations drive me out of this process.

The claim comes on the heels of weeks of controversy surrounding a claim from another woman, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, that Kavanaugh assualted her in high school. The Democratic Party has called for the vote to be postponed till the allegations of assault are investigated.

The Post reported Sunday that Keyser said in a brief interview at her home that she still believes Ford, even if she doesn't remember the party. Some prominent Republicans have indicated that they plan to back Trump's nominee regardless of the hearing's outcome. "The last minute character assassination will not succeed", he wrote. Many believed that somewhere, somehow, leftists would find someone else to come forward with accusations of sexual misconduct against Judge Kavanaugh. Cotton is not on the Judiciary panel.

Before news broke of the sexual misconduct allegations, Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination process was expected to take about three months, from Justice Anthony Kennedy's resignation in late June to a full Senate vote on the current nominee expected in late September.

Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, twice offered words of support for Kavanaugh while in NY to attend the U.N. General Assembly.

One woman told The New Yorker in an article Sunday that the federal appeals court judge sexually assaulted her at a college party in the 1980s. I asked to testify before the Committee again under oath as soon as possible, so that both Dr. Ford and I could both be heard.

"The truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise", Kavanaugh said. She says he covered her mouth and tried to remove her clothing.

Woods wins Tour Championship, ending five-year drought
Afterwards, the crowd chanted his name with "crazy scenes" (according to Rose) of celebration rarely seen at a golf event. Only when he was on the green, the last one to putt after Rory McIlroy tapped in for birdie, did it start to sink in.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

She said on CBS "This Morning" that the allegations against Kavanaugh, now by a second woman, sound like a "vast left-wing conspiracy".

"We try to be fair, accurate and tough on all sides", Mayer said.

In a statement, Grassley said the Judiciary committee's majority staff learned of the allegation made by Ramirez from The New Yorker's report.

His comments, made as he entered United Nations headquarters in NY, were his first since a report Sunday night on a second allegation of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh. Ramirez alleges Kavanaugh shoved his penis in her face and exposed himself to her at a party in college.

In a separate letter, Kavanaugh called Ford and another allegation from a Yale University classmate, "smears, pure and simple".

Kavanaugh today in an exclusive interview on Fox News, alongside his wife, reiterated he was not withdrawing and looking forward to defending himself in front of the committee Thursday. NPR claims that Barrett and Kavanaugh were Trump's two final picks, but Vox reported that Trump wants his Supreme Court nominee to have a degree from Harvard or Yale, and Barrett attended Notre Dame Law School.

Buffalo Bills' Twitter account confuses Minnesota and Wisconsin in video
Seemed like an easy payday with the Buffalo Bills getting blown out 47-3 in Week 1, and a player retiring at half time in Week 2. Minnesota is a really hard place to play and Allen made it look easy on a 75-yard touchdown drive to start the game.

The White House distributed talking points for its supporters in an attempt to discredit the New Yorker story, saying that Democrats had embraced a "new standard of guilty until proven innocent". "Hopefully he will be confirmed quickly".

Kavanaugh said President Trump called him Monday afternoon to tell him he's standing by him.

"Given the multiple serious allegations against him, Kavanaugh can no longer credibly serve on the nation's highest court", the statement reads. Judge Kavanaugh denied he was "at any such party". Trump is confronting a situation that is beyond his control, with the Senate Judiciary Committee making the decisions, including a momentous one Sunday in which it reached an agreement to hear public testimony from the judge's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

"The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out", said Kavanaugh, who will testify Thursday before the committee.

"What we are witnessing is the total collapse of the traditional confirmation process for a Supreme Court nominee", Sen.

That could bring to four the number of women who have made accusations against Kavanaugh.
