Brett Kavanaugh and the Corruption of the American Aristocracy

The Associated Press reported late Monday that Collins said the woman accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in college should be interviewed under oath.

In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and three other classmates, Dino Ewing, Louisa Garry, and Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez's account of events: "We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale".

Both Kavanaugh and Ford are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Chua said in the statement that, contrary to allegations that she told students that it was "no accident" that Kavanaugh hired attractive clerks, she "always" told her students to prep "insanely hard" and that substance was "the most important thing".

She came forward a week after Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychologist, accused Kavanaugh of groping her, trying to undress her and covering her mouth with his hand when they were in high school. Regarding alcohol, he said he never drank so much that he could not remember what happened the night before. We're talking about an allegation of sexual assault.

"I wish there were a way to know for sure", Rivera said.

I do not consider myself to be a political person and I have no political agenda.

The New York Times led with the Twitter allegation in a story about how prominent Republican swing votes could be on the fence about Kavanaugh's nomination.

Some Democratic senators running for re-election in states where Trump is popular also have not yet announced their intentions.

The fate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation rests with Sen.

Additional emails obtained exclusively by Campus Reform show that as many as 20 Yale Law School faculty members canceled or rescheduled up to 31 classes on Monday because of the Kavanaugh hearing.

A White House official publicly questioned the accusations coming from Mr Avenatti's client, saying that the presence of the high-profile lawyer - who has publicly taken on Mr Trump and is weighing a 2020 Democratic presidential bid - makes the proceedings a "circus".

Ramirez and her legal counsel apparently have no interest in elaborating on the accusation past what she told The New Yorker, which was that Kavanaugh exposed himself to Ramirez and put his genitals in her face at a party in the dorms at Yale during their freshman year. If she and another Republican oppose Kavanaugh, his nomination could fail.

"The American people know that sexual misconduct is gravely serious". Blumenthal, almost everyone at this sit-in (and in DC) opposed Kavanaugh long before these allegations appeared and would continue to oppose him even if these allegations were withdrawn or undercut by testimony. "I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place".
