Trump says could withdraw Brett Kavanaugh nomination if allegations against him found credible

Brett Kavanaugh nomination appears to be in serious trouble following the allegations of sexual misconduct made against him, as US President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he could withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination if he finds the allegations against him to be credible.

While speaking at the press conference on the eve of Kavanaugh-Ford hearing, Trump said, “I can always be convinced. If I thought he was guilty of something like this, yes, sure.”

It’s possible I’ll hear that, and I’ll say, ‘Hey, I’m changing my mind. I want to watch,” Trump further said ahead of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing featuring the university professor, Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers.

I look forward to what she has to say,” the President said, adding “I also look forward to what Judge Kavanaugh has to say. I think it’s going to be a very important day in the history of our country.”

In a testimony released on Wednesday, the fifty-one-year-old psychology professor said she feared Kavanaugh would rape her during the attack, which she said took place in the summer of 1982.

Kavanaugh also has been accused of exposing himself to a classmate, Deborah Ramirez, during an alcohol-fueled Yale University party a few years later.

And on Wednesday, a third accuser surfaced with explosive allegations, saying she witnessed sexually abusive behavior by Kavanaugh when he was a teenager. She even claimed that she was gang-raped at a party he attended in the early 1980s.

President Trump, however, also praised his Supreme Court nominee during the press conference saying that Kavanaugh is a “great gentleman” and a “great intellect” and said he believed the accusations of sexual assault against the conservative judge were “false.”
