Supreme Court's Ginsburg voices support for #MeToo on eve of Kavanaugh hearing

Supreme Court's Ginsburg voices support for #MeToo on eve of Kavanaugh hearing

Four months worth of pages from the green and white 1982 calendar were released by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The 53-year-old - who had already been accused of sexual misconduct by two women - said the claim by Ms Swetnick was "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Over the past few days, other false and uncorroborated accusations have been aired. "They laugh like hell", the president said. Trump told journalists in NY. The AP has not been able to corroborate them, and continues to investigate.

In his response email, Koegler wrote, "I remember you telling me about him, but I don't remember his name".

"You're a disgusting excuse for a human being, and I don't know how you can live with yourself", one caller said to a member of Grassley's staff who was answering calls.

Trump said during a news conference in NY that Canada has treated the U.S.

In fact, more than a dozen women came forward during the 2016 campaign, claiming they were assaulted, groped or kissed without consent by Trump.

I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation against me by Dr. Ford.

The declarations, first reported by USA Today, include signed documents from Christine Blasey Ford's husband and three friends that her lawyers sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Senator Susan Collins of ME. said she thinks the second accuser should be questioned by the Senate under oath.... It demands a thorough and independent investigation before the Senate can reasonably vote on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime seat on the nation's highest court.

Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley, sat down for an interview with Fox News Channel's "The Story with Martha MacCallum" after a second woman accused him of sexual misconduct.

On his dispute with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Trump said he would "certainly prefer not" to fire Rosenstein and said he may delay a highly anticipated meeting with him.

Avenatti, Swetnick's lawyer, is the attorney for Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claimed to have had a sexual encounter with Trump more than a decade ago.

"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.

"It does impact my opinion". I've been a famous person for a long time, but I've had a lot of false charges made against me, really false charges. "I'm confident this - he will be confirmed in the very near future".

"She is the most careful and conscientious client that I have ever had".

While Trump pledged to listen to the testimony of Kavanaugh's accuser and even said he was open to changing his mind about his nominee, he made clear that he was deeply skeptical of these types of accusations.

Hoping the hearing will yield no new surprises, the Judiciary Committee scheduled its own vote on Kavanaugh for Friday.

During the free-wheeling news conference, Trump continued to lash out at Democrats and label the allegations against Kavanaugh politically motivated.
