'A Scary Time for Young Men.' President Trump Decries Sexual Assault Allegations

Woman who confronted Sen. Flake on elevator was once a Westchester resident

Arguing that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) now has more than enough information about Brett Kavanaugh's judicial record, partisanship, and sexual assault allegations to know that he is not fit to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, eight women were arrested early Tuesday morning for occupying the senator's campaign headquarters and demanding he vote against the judge's confirmation. It really does. You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something.

"I say that it's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", he said.

President Donald Trump has told reporters that it is a "difficult" and "scary" time for young men in the US.

Judge's lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder, told CNN that the Federal Bureau of Investigation completed its interview with Judge, whom Ford says was in the room when she was allegedly physically and sexually assaulted in the 1980s by Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford testifies at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill.

We request your patience as the FBI completes its investigation."Ford said during her testimony at a dramatic Senate hearing last Thursday that Judge was in the bedroom where the alleged assault by Kavanaugh occurred".

During a Boston appearance earlier in the day, Flake also vowed to ensure the FBI conducts "a real investigation" into the allegations against Kavanaugh. Senate Republicans have delayed votes on his confirmation while the FBI investigates the claims.

During the 2016 campaign, at least 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.

In now-public transcripts from an interview with Republican Judiciary Committee staff on September 25, two days after the Ramirez allegations were reported in the New Yorker, Kavanaugh claimed that it was Ramirez who was "calling around to classmates trying to see if they remembered it", adding that it "strikes me as, you know, what is going on here?"

Donald Trump, addressing concerns about the probe's remit at a news conference, said he wants the FBI to carry out a "comprehensive" investigation and "it wouldn't bother me at all" if agents pursued accusations made by three women who have come forward.

Kavanaugh denies the allegations and has accused Democrats of a political "hit".

But Democrats said that report isn't good enough.

Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said in a media statement the judge was not truthful during his Senate testimony last week about his drinking and that Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker" at Yale who often got belligerent and aggressive when drunk.

"Next, Democrats said the process should be delayed because too few documents were available from Judge Kavanaugh's past public service". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Demand Justice, a new group focused on fighting efforts to tilt the US judiciary to the right, said it was spending $120,000 to air a television ad in Washington, Alaska, Maine and the San Francisco area, where Ford lives.

The FBI has also interviewed Leland Keyser, who Ford said attended the same party.

Kavanaugh's confirmation hinges on a handful of key Republican and Democratic senators who have not yet fully tipped their votes, including Republican Sens. "I thought he might inadvertently kill me", Ford told The Post. Well, then they received the most pages of documents ever produced for a Supreme Court nomination. Judge Kavanaugh's defenders counter that the accusations against him risk making the man a professional and social pariah. He said he may run - either as a Republican or an independent - if no one else does.
