President Trump continues to stand by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh following the emergence of new sexual misconduct allegations against the appeals court judge.
Trump said at the United Nations Monday that the claims made against Kavanaugh are “totally political” and that he has his support.
“I am with him all the way,” Trump said.
A new accuser emerged in a report published Sunday by The New Yorker, with Deborah Ramirez, 53, claiming Kavanaugh exposed himself and placed his penis in front of her face at a party when they were at Yale. She allegedly made contact with his penis as she pushed him.
Attorney Michael Avenetti also tweeted Sunday that he represents a woman with “credible information” that Kavanaugh engaged in sexual misconduct while he was in high school.
The new claims emerged after Christine Blasey Ford, a psychology professor, accused Kavanaugh of sexual assaulting her when they were teenagers in the 1980s.
Kavanaugh has denied Ford’s accusation.
Trump questioned Ford’s allegation in a tweet last week.
“I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents,” the President tweeted. “I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!”
His comments about Kavanaugh on Monday came on a day where he also spoke about the global drug problem at the U.N. headquarters in New York City.
