Will change mind if allegations against Kavanaugh credible

27 Septembre 2018

Design agency Godfrey Dadich Partners says the ad was crafted in the same style as a 1991 full-page ad where 1,600 black women showed support for Anita Hill as she accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.

Look also for four sworn affidavits from people who say Ford told them about the alleged assault before Trump nominated Kavanaugh.

The Republican-controlled committee, led by 11 men, on Tuesday said it had hired a female lawyer to question Ford.

A third woman has come forward with new allegations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of inappropriate behavior while he was in high school.

Even as the governor spoke, another serious allegation against Kavanaugh was released.

"That's not possible, I don't know where they found these people", Guerry said.

In a further twist, Michael Avenatti - the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she once had a tryst with Trump - announced he was representing a third unidentified woman with "credible information" regarding both Kavanaugh and Judge.

"In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these "gang" or "train" rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present", she said, mentioning the name of a close friend of Mr Kavanaugh. "They're playing a con game, and they play it very well".

Borger noted that Murkowski feels it's "important to remember if the FBI investigates these allegations, that it would be part of a continuation of the multiple background checks the Federal Bureau of Investigation has already conducted".

"It's a frightful con game". And it's not that I just thought about it.

Who is the new accuser?

Late Wednesday, the committee released a flurry of other documents of unclear significance.

Kavanaugh added he has "never sexually assaulted anyone -not in high school, not in college, not ever".

She was originally raised in CT, and now lives with her family in Boulder, Colorado, working as a volunteer coordinator in financial aid. Kavanaugh's lawyers reportedly plan on arguing to the committee Thursday that Kavanaugh wasn't at the party where Ford said the incident took place.

Sen. Jeff Flake, a Republican member of the Judiciary panel who could be a key vote, had his own take. Who wouldn't be scared to get up and have to talk about these incredibly private things in such an incredibly public way to strangers who have already, many of whom have already said her testimony doesn't really matter to them.

"I believed he was going to rape me", she will say, according to her prepared testimony. Confirming conservative justices to the Supreme Court is, in his view, central to his compact with his core supporters.

But he also said Ford's testimony, and the accounts of other accusers could prompt him to change course.

Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations, which Trump and some other Republicans described as last-minute smear campaigns.

But the California professor's allegations are centered around the hyper-sensitive topics of alcohol use and attempted sexual assault, meaning Mitchell will have to tread carefully to avoid appearing to victim-blame or cast Ford as a liar.
