Keith Koegler’s statement says Ford revealed her story, and Kavanaugh’s name as the alleged attacker, over two years beginning in 2016.

Wednesday’s ad expresses support for survivors of sexual assault against the backdrop of high-profile accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Avenatti attached his correspondence to the Senate committee and the declaration to a Tweet this morning. The national walkout in solidarity against Brett Kavanaugh was supposed to be held on Monday, 24th September. “The blame falls on the perpetrator who took advantage of you”. “I don’t know who this is and this never happened”.

Swetnick said she was a victim of one of those incidents in the early 1980s and that Kavanaugh and Judge had been present, though she did not say whether they had sex with her.

The mood was intense as Kavanaugh’s voice filled the room for the extraordinary session, unlike Ford’s quiet testimony. This calendar does appear to be marked with a “Beach Week” event.

“I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation against me by Dr. Ford”, Kavanaugh said in the statement.

Ramirez is the second woman to claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.

“I will vote no on Judge Kavanaugh”, Nelson tweeted.

At the University of Houston Law School, the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh was must-see television Thursday.

Who is Julie Swetnick?

Swetnick, 55, identified herself as a Washington, D.C. resident. He ended up attending that Ivy League School.

Not only the walkout, but Time’s Up has also made extended efforts to stand up for Dr. Ford against Brett Kavanaugh.

According to the lead researcher in psychology, the future judge and a friend, both “completely drunk”, were isolated in a room at a party between high school students in the suburbs of Washington.

The affidavit said she has clearances to work with multiple federal agencies, including the Treasury Department.

It was clear from the first words out of Kavanaugh’s mouth that he had shed the amiable veneer he brought to his television appearance and channeled the defiance Trump himself had shown the previous day when defending his nominee. Joe Manchin, a Democrat, and that they could vote as a bloc. He said his wife mentioned that she was afraid Trump would pick Kavanaugh, who was on his list of candidates.

Right-wing media can tell the base that the proceedings were a secret success, even as Republicans avoided going hard at at Ford in a way that might have alienated millions of suburban and college-educated white women who will decide the midterms. Some Democrats have called on Kavanaugh to withdraw and have said an FBI investigation is needed before any Senate confirmation vote.

“We’re going to be moving forward – I’m confident we’re going to win”, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters just off the Senate floor, as top Republicans formed a solid political wedge in public, making the argument that “vague, uncorroborated allegations” should not be allowed to stop Kavanaugh. Women’s March, for instance, created cancelkavanaugh.com as a resource for those who want to make their voices heard.

“We believe Anita Hill. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh”, she alleged in the statement.

Like much of America, politicians awaited a momentous Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in which Mr Kavanaugh and chief accuser Christine Blasey Ford are to testify on Thursday, though not together. “The standard of character and fitness for a position on the nation’s highest court must be higher than this”.
