New Accuser Says She Witnessed Sexual Abuses by Kavanaugh

We demand an immediate FBI investigation into the allegations.

While negotiating her possible appearance before the Judiciary Committee, Ford's legal team has urged the panel to compel Judge to testify, while Republicans have insisted that the hearing be limited to Ford and Kavanaugh.

She said she "witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to "target" particular girls so they could be taken advantage of; it was usually a girl that was especially vulnerable because she was alone at the party or shy".

Swetnick is the third woman to come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the claims.

If proven true, it will mark the end of Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. In the letter, Ford said she faced death threats and was relying on her lawyers and Grassley to "agree to conditions that will allow me to testify in a fair setting".

In an interview with Fox News aired on Monday night, Kavanaugh said he "never sexually assaulted anyone", has "always treated women with dignity and respect" and "did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter". However, he is refusing to testify under oath, and Senate Republicans are refusing to subpoena him to do so.

Kavanaugh accuser agrees to testify in Senate hearing
Her lawyers tentatively agreed to a hearing on Saturday and announced a definite answer after additional conversations on Sunday. Grassley had previously told Ford's lawyer, Debra Katz, that Ford had until 10:00pm Friday to decide whether to testify .

Modric favoured ahead Ronaldo for top prize
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the judges for a new award created to recognise the world's best young player. But for now, just bask in the glow of the forward picking up another award - and one so prestigious as the Puskas.

Dozens drown in ferry capsize in Tanzania
With a surface area of 70,000 sq km (27,000 sq miles), the oval-shaped Lake Victoria is shared by Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. The captain of a ferry which sank on Lake Victoria has been arrested as the death toll from the disaster climbed above 130.

Real smears, real character assassination, and it happens predictably every election season and it happens with Supreme Court nominees.

Avenatti, the lawyer also representing adult film star Stormy Daniels who is suing President Donald Trump, said on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" that he has multiple clients and "at least one" is prepared to come forward publicly within the next 48 hours.

Here's an Avenatti tweet, because I guess that's how we do things now.

Kavanuagh has repeatedly denied the allegations made against him, including in an interview with Fox News that aired earlier this week. "We need to make sure that we get this right, 100% right, before a vote in the U.S. Senate is taken on his confirmation for a lifetime potentially to the U.S. Supreme Court".

"Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford's letter", Judge wrote. And there's no corroboration of these allegations (they'll ignore that the Committee has refused to call Mark Judge). "Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation".
