"Oh, gee, let's not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that?"
"I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there", she said. Of Ramirez's allegation, Trump said, "And now a new charge comes up". Blasey is expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. "I've never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said in the interview, sitting alongside his wife.
According to The New Yorker, 53-year-old Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they were both students at Yale University in the 1980s. She claims Kavanaugh took down his trousers and thrust his penis in her face.
"No, I know Brett".
Kavanaugh's confirmation would firm up conservative control of the Supreme Court and advance Trump's goal of moving the high court and the broader federal judiciary to the right.
Answering allegations that he may have had too much to drink on several occasions during his college years, he said: "I think all of us have probably done things we look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit".
"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", Ford told the Post.
The White House said on Tuesday it is open to hearing public testimony from another woman who has accused supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. "Again, the president's been clear, let them speak but let's let Brett Kavanaugh speak and let's let him tell his side of the story before we allow allegations to determine his entire future", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday when asked if the president wants Ramirez to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
In extraordinary spectacles, judge Kavanaugh and his wife subjected themselves to an interview on Fox News to challenge reports of what some of his supporters saw as youthful excesses, even as the liberal media continued to expose what others saw a licentious behaviour of elite prep school alumni that they say should effectively disqualify him from the Supreme Court.

Efficient Pliskova proves too strong for 'tired' Osaka
Osaka and Pliskova will face off Sunday for the third time overall and second this year with a Premier-level title on the line. She can still, however, take heart from her recent run of form as she looks to finish the year on a strong note.
"After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away".
Mr Kavanaugh called the allegations "grotesque and obvious character assassination" and added that they could dissuade others from entering public service.
McConnell says the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation soon. And she says, 'Well it might not be him.' And there were gaps.
A lawyer representing Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, said that the plan for Thursday's public hearing risks turning it into a trial and "does not appear created to provide Dr. Blasey Ford with fair and respectful treatment".
Kavanaugh also told MacCallum that he would not withdraw his name from consideration over the allegations. She adds, "This is a country where you're innocent until proven guilty except when you're a conservative Republican".
Kavanaugh's interview aired on Monday, a day after a former Yale University classmate claimed he sexually assaulted her at a party 35 years ago.
President Trump reaffirmed his support for Kavanaugh Monday. "The Senate should shut this circus down and move the Kavanaugh confirmation to a timely vote".
There were no immediate indications that the emergence of a second accuser had fatally wounded Kavanaugh's prospects.
