White House 'Open' To Hearing From Second Kavanaugh Accuser

President Donald Trump said he's open to changing his mind on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - if the evidence at Thursday's Senate committee hearing is compelling.

She added, "I witnessed Brett Kavanaugh consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s".

"If such a thing had happened, it would have been the talk of campus", Mr Kavanaugh said.

Since Ford's allegation surfaced, two other women have come forward alleging sexual misconduct by the judge.

Ford and Kavanaugh are both scheduled to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday (local time).

Twenty-six percent of those polled sided with Kavanaugh and 42 percent said they were not sure who was telling the truth about the alleged incident.

During a rare press conference Wednesday, President Trump defended his embattled his Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh from multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

Kavanaugh told Fox News that the claims against him were false, that he never attended a party like the one Blasey Ford described, and that he has never sexually assaulted anyone.

He said his wife was "afraid" Trump would nominate Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court and was "very conflicted" about whether she should come forward with her story.

In 1982, when she was at Gaithersburg High School in Maryland, she also said that she became a victim of one of these "gang" or "train" rapes where Kavanaugh and Judge were present.

California university professor Christine Blasey Ford was to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday about her accusation that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party when they were both teenagers.

"They weren't laughing at me, they were laughing with me", Trump said on Wednesday during his press conference in NY.

Kavanaugh categorically denied Swetnick's claims.

On Sunday, the New Yorker reported that Democrats were investigating a claim from Kavanaugh's college classmate Deborah Ramirez, who says the Supreme Court nominee put his penis in her face when she was drunk.

Murkowski's remarks are significant, as she is considered a key swing vote in the Senate - and if she defects from her party, it could potentially kill Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Kavanaugh's 2nd Accuser 'Has Nothing' Because She 'Admits She Was Drunk'
Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, a potentially key Republican vote, said GOP senators need to come into the hearing with open minds. For survivors and the people who care about them, the message is crushing and familiar: Your experience doesn't matter.

"I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room", she said. There's no telling how Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will perform at the hearing.
