Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s released a statement denying Dr. Christine Blasey Ford sexual assault claims. He also confirmed that he would be at the hearing on Monday, even though Ford said she would not be there.

Kavanaugh has said he’ll “be there Monday,” even though his alleged survivor has said that she’s open to testifying next week, but definitely not on Monday.
Here ‘s Kavanaugh’s statement:

Dear Chairman Grassley:
Thank you for the invitation to appear before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary on Monday, September 24. I will be there. I look forward to the opportunity to testify before the Committee.
I also appreciate the time that Committee staff took to interview me on Monday, September 17. During that interview, I twice requested a Committee hearing for the following day, Tuesday, September 18. I continue to want a hearing as soon as possible, so that I can clear my name.
Since the moment I first heard this allegation, I have categorically and unequivocally denied it. I remain committed to defending my integrity.
Sincerely,
Brett M. Kavanaugh

Tuesday, CNN released interviews with Texas Trump supporters who defended his racist attacks on four Congresswomen of color. Wednesday night, Van Jones showed his panel of supporters of both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama. But things got tense when a Black Trump supporter was asked about the president's racially charged statements.

Two men, one white one Black, in the group said they supported Trump and probably would again because business was good. Two women in the group lamented that Trump's racism was hurtful for the country.

"I just go back to values," the older women said. "I value treating people with dignity. And if there is anything that is incongruent with those values, then I'm not for that. So I'm not going to put profit over my values."

CNN host Don Lemon thinks that President Donald Trump is using issues like race to manipulate his voters into voting against their own interest.

In his opening commentary, Lemon showed the clip of Trump's supporters chanting "send her back" at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a Somali immigrant who came to the U.S. when she was just 12 years old.

He then cited a tweet that Trump sent out earlier Wednesday.

"New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 Election, has just announced that "Trump" numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50 percent. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen. America will never buy your act! #MAGA2020," Trump tweeted.
