U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday he believed President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, would be confirmed to the lifetime position.

"I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there", she said.

In a piece by Ronan Farrow published on Sunday by The New Yorker, Deborah Ramirez, 53, claimed that during the 1983-1984 school year, she attended a dormitory party that was also attended by Kavanaugh, a freshman at the time.

"Brett Kavanaugh said he is "not going anywhere" despite the sexual misconduct allegations levied against him".

In the midst of his visit to the United Nations, President Donald Trump on Tuesday denounced Democrats and some of the allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanugh, as the President accused Democrats of playing a "very risky game" in their opposition to the judge's nomination. He added, "She admits that she was drunk". He said he did not question that perhaps Ms Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted, "but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone".

Ibrahimovic's incredible 500th goal
Zlatan Ibrahimovic simply doesn't score ordinary goals, but even by his standards, his 500th career goal was special. With LA Galaxy 3-0 down just before half-time, the Swedish forward struck with a spinning backheel volley.

Sen. Chris Coons, Delaware Democrat, drew double-takes on the right Monday after insisting that the burden of proof lies with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to prove his innocence.

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".

"For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and never mention it, all of a sudden it happens - in my opinion, it's totally political".

The first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, and Kavanaugh will respond to her allegations as well. At that hearing, the panel will hear testimony from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor who has accused him of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when both were high school students in Maryland. Kavanaugh denies her claims.

Kavanaugh denied the story, calling it "a smear, plain and simple". Jeff Flake, a Republican on the committee, has expressed concerns over the sexual assault allegations.

Grassley said he will continue working on a way to hear from Ford "in an appropriate , precedented and respectful manner". Kavanaugh had been on a smooth confirmation track, but the new allegations have roiled that process.

"I just don't think one man's shoulders should bear decades of the MeToo movement", Conway said. "And we certainly hope he is going to be confirmed, and quickly", Trump told reporters in NY.

On Mr Kavanaugh, Mr Trump stressed: "I am with him all the way".

Republicans have rejected any further delays in the confirmation process, which includes a committee vote followed by consideration by the full Senate.

However, with elections approaching, Kavanaugh's rejection would give Republicans little time to select a new nominee for confirmation before the end of December, when the current Senate session ends.

Democrats have accused Republicans of not conducting a thorough review in their rush to get Kavanaugh confirmed.
