At the United Nations, Trump, who had previously questioned Ford's credibility, turned his attention to Kavanaugh's second accuser, Deborah Ramirez.
He said Democratic support for her allegations, as well as those of Christine Blasey Ford, amounted to a "con game" to defeat a person he said was perfectly qualified to serve on the Supreme Court bench. "Until they're replaced, we won't see the power of the #MeToo movement, or survivors or women in the Senate".

He called the allegations "grotesque and obvious character assassination" and says they could dissuade others from entering public service.

"They know it's a con game", he said. Asked by reporters Monday why he thinks that, Hatch responded, "Because I know it is, that's why".
"My gut is they're trying to avoid a panel of all white guys asking tone-deaf questions", said Democratic Sen. His first date with his future bride was September 10, 2001.
As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

On Monday, the president told reporters, "I'm with Judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote".
She did not pull punches.
The White House is approaching Ford's potential testimony with trepidation, nervous that an emotional appearance might not just damage Kavanaugh's chances but could further energize female voters to turn out against Republicans in November.
"Who is going to want to go before the system to be a Supreme Court judge or a judge or even a politician?" he said.
On Monday, Michael Avenatti, a lawyer who represents a porn star claiming to have had an affair with Trump, has said he is also representing a third Kavanaugh accuser, whose identity and story he said would be revealed on Wednesday.
