"I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!" "I don't think her coming forward with her name was necessarily her choice".

Soon after, she says she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words. when she says she remembers seeing a real penis smack dab in her face. "It was his full name". "I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh", his lawyer wrote in a letter, which also included a ringing endorsement of Kavanaugh's nomination. On Twitter, the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport trended among women - and men - who explained why they didn't report instances of assault from years or decades ago.

Ramirez, who is now married and lives in Boulder, Colorado, is a volunteer and board member at a nonprofit group that helps victims of domestic violence, Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence.

Howard Walsh, Keyser's attorney, responded, "Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford".

Ford claims Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were high schoolers at a suburban Maryland party.

One Republican senator, declining to be identified, called the developments published in The New Yorker "bizarre" and a series of "ugly allegations".

Keyser, according to Walsh, believes Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh.

Minutes after the release of The New Yorker's report, the White House released a pair of statements denying the claim.

Israel accused after Russian spy plane lost over Syria
The Russian jet was flying over the Mediterranean Sea back to Russia's Hmeimim air base in Syria when contact was lost. The ministry said four Israeli F-16 fighter jets had carried out on targets in the Syrian province of Latakia.

Kavanaugh has called Ford's allegation "completely false" and in a statement provided by the White House Sunday night said the incident described by Ramirez "did not happen". "The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so", he said. This is a smear, plain and simple.

The White House itself echoed Kavanaugh's pushback. A White House spokesperson added in a second statement that the allegation was "designed to tear down a good man".

"Judge Kavanaugh would be forced [to] answer about a Washington Post article detailing allegations, not the words of his accuser. Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this".

Michael Avenetti, a U.S. lawyer known for representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her cases against President Trump, has alleged on Twitter that he is representing a third woman with "credible information" regarding Judge Kavanaugh and the alleged witness to Prof Ford's assault, Mark Judge.

A person working on Kavanaugh's confirmation backed up the Times account of the calendars to The Associated Press. California's Diane Feinstein, the committee's top Democrat, sent a letter Sunday to Republican chairman Charles Grassley urging him to refer the new allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in order to ensure "a fair, independent process that will gather all the facts".

She has now agreed to go one step further - testify in the Senate.

Kavanaugh's troubled confirmation bid complicates midterm campaigning, with Election Day just six weeks away. All three told investigators that they had no recollection of the evening in question, the committee said. Senate Republicans should stand up to these unsubstantiated and discredited allegations and move forward with a vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Democrats are calling for the FBI to investigate the sexual assault allegation against the Supreme Court nominee. (In the previous Fox News poll, August 19-21, voters were split, 46 percent opposing, 45 percent in favor.) The 50 percent opposition is the worst number for a Supreme Court nominee in Fox News polling dating back to 2005.
