Kavanaugh defends himself in Fox News interview alongside his wife by claiming he never sexually assaulted anyone and didn’t have sex until ‘many years after’ college

President Donald Trump with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley Kavanaugh, will appear in an unusual — if not unprecedented — interview, in which they’ll address allegations of sexual misconduct.
In an attempt to reassure Republican senators and the party’s voters that Kavanaugh remains the best choice for the Supreme Court, the White House and the GOP are taking the extraordinary step of green-lighting an offensive attack starring the nominee himself.
Media reporters and others see the interview as White House-orchestrated propaganda effort to boost Kavanaugh days before one of his accusers testifies before the Senate.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley Kavanaugh, will appear in an unusual — if not unprecedented — interview, in which they’ll address the allegations of sexual misconduct the Supreme Court nominee is facing, with Fox News on Monday night.

In an attempt to reassure Republican senators and the party’s voters that Kavanaugh remains the best choice for the nation’s high court, the White House and the GOP are taking the extraordinary step of greenlighting an offensive attack starring the nominee himself.

Kavanaugh has forcefully denied allegations that he sexually assaulting a girl in high school and exposed himself to a female classmate in college, calling two women’s claims “smears, pure and simple” and “grotesque and obvious character assassination” in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday.

And he vowed not to withdraw his nomination, a promise he also makes in the interview with Fox host Martha MacCallum, several excerpts of which were released by Fox on Monday evening.

In the interview, which will air at 7 p.m. on Monday, Kavanaugh repeats his denials of the allegations ahead of the Thursday hearing in which both he and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, are scheduled to testify before the Senate committee.

Leftist Celebrities Join ‘National Walkout’ to Protest Kavanaugh

On Monday, countless Hollywood celebrities teamed up with left-wing politicians and organizations like Planned Parenthood, NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) and the Women’s March to promote a “walkout” to show they sided with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. Kavanaugh is accused of groping Ford and attempting to remove her bathing suit at a party 36 years ago, an accusation Kavanaugh has vehemently denied.

Another woman — Deborah Ramirez — also recently came forward to accuse the Supreme Court nominee of sexual misconduct. She told the New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a Yale party in the early ’80s.

Notable leftist celebs opposing Kavanaugh include some of the entertainment industry’s most outspoken political figures like Samantha Bee, Alyssa Milano, Chelsea Handler, Debra Messing, and Jane Fonda.

“Women must be heard. Today I am wearing black in solidarity with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford,” wrote “Scandal” star Kerry Washington on Twitter.

“Believe survivors. When women come forward — we show them they are safe. That they are being listened to. No more,” added comedian Chelsea Handler.

Here are some more examples of Hollywood’s activism against Kavanaugh on Monday:

Seattle one step closer to NHL after arena plan approved

SEATTLE — The Seattle City Council has unanimously approved plans for a privately funded $700 million renovation of KeyArena, clearing one of the last major hurdles in the city’s bid to land an expansion NHL franchise.

The 8-0 vote Monday was the last step needed to complete Seattle’s expansion application in time to potentially field a team for the 2020-21 season. Seattle Hockey Partners, the ownership group attempting to land the expansion team, is set to present before the NHL Board of Governors’ Executive Committee next week.

The council approval ended a more than decade-long struggle to find an arena solution. Issues with KeyArena ultimately led to the Seattle SuperSonics’ move following the 2008 season to Oklahoma City, where the franchise was rebranded as the Thunder.

The final scheduled event for the arena in its current state is an Oct. 5 NBA exhibition game between the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings.
