'I've Never Sexually Assaulted Anyone'


Her allegation against the conservative federal appeals court judge has endangered his confirmation by the Republican-led Senate to a lifetime job on the top U.S. court.

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said they are determined to get Mr Kavanaugh on the court, calling the allegations against him false and politically motivated.

The interview came a day after the New Yorker magazine published the account of Ramirez in which she alleged Kavanaugh exposed himself to her without consent during a drunken party at Yale University in the 1980s.

President Donald Trump and most Senate Republicans have said an FBI investigation isn't needed.

Asked then about the possibility of Ramirez testifying, Trump continued.

"I am with him all the way", Trump said between meetings at the United Nations.

Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, has said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when both were high school students in Maryland.

The roadblocks to confirming Brett Kavanaugh as a judge on the United States Supreme Court are mounting.

Meanwhile, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Committee on the Judiciary Ranking member Dianne Feinstein, in a letter, urged President Donald Trump to direct the Federal Bureau of Investigation to immediately and thoroughly investigate Ford's allegations and report to the Senate as soon as possible.

"There is now a frenzy to come up with something - anything - that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring", Kavanaugh said in his statement.

A comment by Murkowski to CNN on Tuesday could be an ominous sign for Kavanaugh.

"The second accuser has nothing", Mr Trump told reporters at the UN. Ford's attorneys have said their client wants senators to ask the questions.

He also said of Ford's accusations "I was not at the party described".

In a statement Roche said that although he was not at the part, where Kavanaugh's accuser alleges the incident took place however he said that his friend Ramirez "stood out as being exceptionally honest and gentle" while he said Kavanaugh was a "notably heavy drinker" during his college years. "This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen", he said.

"As we have stated previously, sexual assault must not be normalized or condoned in any way or by anyone, especially those charged with political leadership", the group said. "I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise".

"I am looking for a fair process, a process where I can defend my integrity and clear my name".

"He was so truthful", Trump said about the judge's interview on Fox News on Monday in which he denied the accusations.
