During a press conference in NY on Tuesday, the president called the allegations against Kavanaugh a "con game" and attacked Ramirez's claims.
At a press conference in NY on Wednesday afternoon, President Donald Trump declined to comment on Swetnick's claims, saying he was a bit preoccupied at the United Nations to pay attention to the domestic scandals of the day, but dismissed her lawyer Michael Avenatti as a "lowlife". "I have to watch tomorrow".
A third woman has come forward with new allegations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of inappropriate behavior while he was in high school.
Democrats, meanwhile, tapped Ms. Blasey Ford's emotions and dismissed gaps in her memory.
"She is trained to understand these dynamics", Mr. Romley said. I am here this morning to answer these allegations and to tell the truth.
The stakes for both political parties - and the country - are high.
The controversy has unfolded just weeks ahead of the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans. Kavanaugh's ascendance to the high court could help lock in a conservative majority for a generation, shaping dozens of rulings on abortion, regulation, the environment and more. "I believed he was going to rape me", she said in her opening statement.
Committee staff spoke to a second man over the phone Wednesday who also said he believed he, not Kavanaugh, had the disputed encounter with Ford.
China cancels trade talks with US

"What they have endured ought to be considered by all of us as unacceptable and a poor reflection on the state of civility in our democracy", Grassley said.
If his nomination clears the panel, it must win confirmation from the full Senate, which Republicans narrowly control 51-49.
But at least a hint of doubt has crept in.
Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of OR said Grassley's decision to go ahead with the hearing "sends a very powerful statement that women's voices in America really don't matter, that the evidence, the facts, all the things that may come to light tomorrow are secondary to just jamming this through". One of the anonymous claims was recanted ahead of the hearing.
The August 7 examination, held in a Maryland Hilton Hotel, consisted of a one-page, handwritten statement by Ford, an interview and two questions: Is any part of your statement false?
Under questioning from Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, Ford said she has suffered from claustrophobia and anxiety as a result of her experience and initially struggled when at college.
Ford's attorneys have repeatedly noted Ford's medical records as a way to corroborate her story.
"Swetnick said she had witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh to "'target' particular girls so they could be taken advantage of".
Ford plans to tell the committee that, one night in the summer of 1982, a drunken Kavanaugh forced her down on a bed, "groped me and tried to take off my clothes", then clamped his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream before she was able to escape.
"I think anybody in their right mind would be terrified but she's not going to let the fear stop her", Guerry said. Judge is a boyhood friend of Kavanaugh who has written a book describing the debauchary of his high school years.
She alleged Kavanaugh and Judge were "drunkenly laughing during the attack", which she maintained "has drastically altered" her life. She also said Kavanaugh was present at a 1982 party at which she was raped.
Nothing on the calendar appears to refer to her.
The seats of supporters take up the first two rows directly behind the witness stand and both Kavanaugh and Ford were allowed an even number of supporters.
Trump himself has faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct.
Kavanaugh, 53, has vehemently denied the accusation.
The report as read said when the man learned of the assault, "he and another individual went to the harbor, located the boat the victim had described and physically confronted the two men, leaving them with significant injuries".

I didn't play with Davis. "The Bills can absolutely attempt to fight that, and some sort of arbitrator would need to rule". Davis made it clear that money is not worth his physical or mental health and happiness.
Ford, whose identity was unknown until Sunday, had sent a letter to Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein in July. Kavanaugh says in the statement he "had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself".
