President Trump Backs Kavanaugh, Slams 'Totally Political' Attacks

President Donald Trump is standing by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after the New Yorker published an unsubstantiated story Sunday about sexual misconduct in college.

"I'm with Judge Kavanaugh," Trump said from the UN General Assembly in New York City. "For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and never mentioned it, all of a sudden it happens...in my opinion, it's totally political. It's totally political. There's a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything."

"We'll see how it goes with the Senate, we'll see how it goes for a vote," he continued. 

The White House also firmly backed Kavanaugh Sunday night.

“This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats designed to tear down a good man. This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say. The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh,” White House Spokesperson Kerri Kupec said.

Kavanaugh has completely denied the accusation. 

“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple," Kavanaugh released in a statement. "I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name--and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building--against these last-minute allegations.”

Meanwhile, Democrats are withholding information about the newest allegation and refusing to share documentation with Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"The committee’s majority staff learned the allegations made by Deborah Ramirez about Judge Kavanaugh from this evening’s New Yorker report. Neither she nor her legal representative have contacted the chairman’s office," Chairman Chuck Grassley's office released Sunday night. "The article reports that Democratic staff were aware of  these allegations, but they never informed Republican staff."

Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein is calling for Kavanaugh's confirmation to be halted indefinitely.
