On Monday Brett Kavanaugh said he won’t be “intimidated into withdrawing” his nomination to the Supreme Court. In a new letter to top lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee Kavanaugh called accusations he sexually harassed and assaulted women decades ago while in high school and college “smears”.

Kavanaugh wrote in the letter, “I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last minute character assassination will not succeed.”

Kavanaugh intends to testify Thursday before the committee about the allegations along with the first accuser. He has been hit with new but uncorroborated accusations.

Kavanaugh wrote, “There is now a frenzy to come up with something—anything—that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring. These are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse.”

He also told committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., he is determined to defend his integrity.

Kavanaugh also wrote, “Women from every phase of my life have come forward to attest to my character. I am grateful to them. I owe it to them, and to my family, to defend my integrity and my name. I look forward to answering questions from the Senate on Thursday.”

Here is the letter:

The latest accusation was made by Debbie Ramirez. In a New Yorker article she alleged Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a Yale University party.

Ramirez claimed Kavanaugh committed the act while she was intoxicated during a drinking game in the 1983-84 academic year. Kavanaugh was a freshman. She also claimed she inadvertently touched Kavanaugh’s penis when she pushed him away and said the incident left her “embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated.”

The report stated that the magazine had not corroborated that Kavanaugh was at the party in question. An anonymous male classmate said he was told that Kavanaugh had exposed himself to Ramirez during the following days.

Ramirez has admitted to the magazine that she does not fully remember the alleged incident because she had been drinking at the time. It was also reported that Ramirez spent six days “carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” before telling the full version of her story.

Doesn’t this make you wonder what made her remember?

Kavanaugh’s confirmation has been chaotic since Christine Blasey Ford accused of him of forcing himself on her during a party sometime during the 1980s before being able to get away.

Ford said it was a “difficult” decision to come forward with her allegation but she felt it was her “civic duty” in a letter to Grassley released on Monday. Ford said she initially wanted to disclose the allegations “in a confidential manner,” but she’s now ready to testify.

Ford said, “While I am frightened, please know, my fear will not hold me back from testifying and you will be provided with answers to all of your questions. I ask for fair and respectful treatment.”

Michael Avenatti, the attorney who became famous for representing porn star Stormy Daniels, tweeted:

Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations.

On Monday President Trump stood behind Kavanaugh calling the uncorroborated claims “totally political” and “unfair.”

Trump said in New York, “I am with Judge Kavanaugh,” “For people to come out of the woodwork from thirty-six years ago, and thirty years ago, and never mentioned it, all of a sudden it happened … totally political.”

Why is Avenatti involved in this now? It seems he went from porn star to women who drank a lot. It is a chaotic circus!
