Second woman accuses Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

A new sexual assault allegation has surfaced against Justice Brett Kavanaugh and is being investigated by the Senate Democrats, a media report claimed Sunday, a development that can further complicate the confirmation process of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee. "After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party".

The statement from Ford's lawyers noted that she would still testify even though "important procedural and logistical issues remain unresolved" and expressed dissatisfaction that the committee does not plan to subpoena Mark Judge, who Ford said was in the room when Kavanaugh allegedly groped her and tried to remove her clothes during a party in their high school years.

The allegation is the latest twist in Mr Kavanaugh's already heated confirmation battle, which is set for a dramatic hearing this week involving a university professor who recently came forward accusing him of assaulting her when they were high schoolers.

In other words, Ford expects to be believed without question because 36 years ago she suffered what for any woman would be a devastating experience she "will never forget" - but she demands to be excused for not recalling key facts about the unforgettable. Kavanaugh, 53, an appellate court judge, denied the allegation and said he wanted to testify as soon as possible to clear his name.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of IL, also a Judiciary Committee member, questioned why Ford would have come forward if the allegation wasn't true.

Updates with White House statement, other details throughout.

"I remember a penis being in front of my face", said Ramirez, who says she had been drinking.

But the statement from Blasey Ford's team noted committee Republicans' refusal to invite other alleged witnesses of the assault to give testimony, and said it was "unresolved" whether "senators or staff attorneys" for the majority would be asking questions at the hearing.

US President Donald Trump has chose to stand behind his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"I want to listen to her, but I'm being honest with you and everybody else.What am I supposed to do?"

"Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez have bravely come forward and shared their stories about sexual misconduct and assault at the hands of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh", reads the walkout Facebook event.

At least two Democratic senators are investigating the claim, the New Yorker reported.

The newest allegation published Sunday night comes as another Kavanaugh accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is expected to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Republicans had floated the idea of having a female committee staffer question Ford, to avoid the optics of the panel's all-male Republican roster interrogating Ford. A White House spokesperson added in a second statement that the allegation was "designed to tear down a good man". She said she was able to escape, but the Washington Post reported that she described the episode to a therapist in 2013 as a "rape attempt".

Ms Ford alleges that Mr Kavanaugh drunkenly assaulted her at a party when he was 17, she was 15 and they were attending private schools outside Washington in the 1980s.

Earlier Saturday amid the latest deadline standoff Vice President Mike Pence called Kavanaugh "a man of integrity with impeccable credentials".

Mr Grassley wrangled with Ms Ford's lawyers for the last week over the exact terms of her appearance.

The classmate independently recalled numerous same details Ramirez told The New Yorker about the incident.
