'Scary time for young men' in US

Adjust Comment Print

Deborah Ramirez, from Boulder, accused Kavanaugh of pulling down his trousers and exposing himself to her while the pair were classmates at Yale in the 1980s.

Of course, the main point here is that another figure from Kavanaugh's past has come forward with evidence of the sort of boorish behavior Kavanaugh has been accused of but steadfastly denied while under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

■The Post reported that as of Monday afternoon agents had interviewed at least four people: three who were identified as attending a party in Maryland where Christine Blasey Ford alleged that Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were teenagers; and a second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, who says Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when both were Yale students.

Trump made the remarks at a freewheeling rally that comes as the FBI investigates allegations that the embattled Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted female students while in high school and college.

President Donald Trump told reporters on the White House lawn that he still supports Kavanaugh but said it is "a scary time for young men" who could become the subject of false accusations.

The FBI's investigation has become the fulcrum of the Kavanaugh nomination, with Democrats and some Republicans saying the process can not move forward until a full and fair investigation is done.

"Wow! Just starting to hear the Democrats, who are only thinking Obstruct and Delay, are starting to put out the word that the "time" and "scope" of Federal Bureau of Investigation looking into Judge Kavanaugh and witnesses is not enough", the president tweeted.

The activists behind the protests said they planned to keep up the effort as the FBI investigates accusations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh when he was in high school and college. Kavanaugh has adamantly denied the allegations. He said Kavanaugh was "rightfully angry" about the accusations, and he added, "Who wouldn't be?"

He also mocked Democrats as acting "holier than thou" and focused on several potential 2020 contenders by name, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen.

His remarks appear to contradict Mr Kavanaugh's own claims that he wasn't a heavy drinker.

Ludington said Kavanaugh was trying to figure out whether a man at the bar was UB40 lead singer Campbell, who would have been coming from the concert and in his 20s at the time.

The report said that the victim, Dom Cozzolino , "was bleeding from the right ear" and was later treated at a local hospital. According to a police report obtained by the Times , a 21-year old man accused Kavanaugh of throwing ICE at him.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, considered a swing vote on the nomination, refused to be drawn into the issue of Kavanaugh's credibility or the timing of an eventual vote on Tuesday.

Praising the Supreme Court, Flake said it was "the last bastion of, the last institution that most Americans have faith in".

I certainly had imagined a broader, more open, more fulsome investigation this week.

"It is a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", he told reporters.

What do they have to do with Kavanaugh?

Imitating her, he said: "But I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember". Although she asked Ford all of the questions posed by Republican senators, she asked Kavanaugh only two rounds of questions until GOP senators began speaking again.

"The initial defense that Judge Kavanaugh gave was something - like I told my wife I hope that I would sound that indignant if I were - if I felt that I was unjustly, you know, maligned". "We don't want a Supreme Court whose credibility is in doubt".

The lawyers' concerns emerged amid reports that the FBI could wind up its investigation well before the deadline of this Friday.

"Think of your son", Trump said. "But this case is even weaker than that", Mitchell writes in the memo, being sent Sunday night to all Senate Republicans.

The FBI is expected to spend the coming days investigating the sexual misconduct claims against Kavanaugh.
