On Sunday, The New Yorker dropped a new bombshell, reporting that a second woman was accusing the Washington appeals court judge of sexual misconduct, while they were students at Yale University around 1983-84.
"The president said a number of times that these individuals should be heard", she also said.
"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, but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said.
To be confirmed, Kavanaugh will need the approval of 50 senators. With all 11 GOP Judiciary committee members male, Republicans have hired a female attorney who would question Ford for them, said a GOP aide who was not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.
Kavanaugh has denied the claims against him and in a Fox News interview Monday, said that he was a virgin in high school and for "many years thereafter" as a defense against the accusations.
No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Richard Durbin of IL said by detailing the alleged 1980s incident when she and Kavanaugh were high schoolers, Ford exposed herself to ridicule and attack "even by the president of the United States in his tweets". You know what Ramirez, aided by whichever Democratic handler is now working with her, will say to Sanders's invitation.
"I do think it's unfair to continue to drag the process out and continue to put good people through the wringer for the sake of political games the Democrats want to play", Sanders said in a separate interview on Fox News. This is a smear, plain and simple.

"Justice matters. Evidence matters". "Leader McConnell owes an apology to Dr. Ford for labeling her allegations a 'smear job.' And he should apologize to her immediately".
During his remarks, McConnell did not mention Ramirez.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is promising a confirmation vote will come soon and the president is showing full public support. I'll tell you: Maybe even more important: Who is going to want to go before the system to be a Supreme Court judge or even a politician? Schumer asked. "Certainly not to me. Not to the American people".
"Together, we show them the power of solidarity, the power of having a voice", said Twitter user and activist Delaney Tarr.
A spokesperson for the Time's Up movement later issued a statement calling for Kavanaugh to withdraw: 'His confirmation would compromise the integrity of the court for generations to come, ' he said.
Some senators on the Judiciary Committee have already cast doubt on Ramirez's claims. Kavanaugh deinied the latest allegation. "I knew that's not what I wanted, even in that state of mind". NPR claims that Barrett and Kavanaugh were Trump's two final picks, but Vox reported that Trump wants his Supreme Court nominee to have a degree from Harvard or Yale, and Barrett attended Notre Dame Law School.
"This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen", he said in a statement.
Today, the lawyer of former porn star Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had sex with President Trump, claims he is representing a third accuser. Kavanaugh may drop out himself, while his nomination could also be pulled by the White House or not accepted by the nomination committee.
