    Following his nomination for a currently vacant Supreme Court seat, Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by his former high school classmates Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez.

    US President Donald Trump flatly rejected accusations targeting his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Monday.

    "There's a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate but I am with Judge Kavanaugh… In my opinion, it's totally political," Trump said.

    Recently, an ex-classmate of the Supreme Court nominee accused him of sexual assault. According to Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to rip off her clothes while drunk after a high school party in 1982.

    Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the accusations, stressing that he seeks to appear at a hearing “as soon as possible” in order to clear his name. The deadline for the hearing, however, was extended several times due to the requests of Ford's lawyers.
