Kavanaugh Says  He Will Not Be Intimidated Into Withdrawing

In a new letter Monday, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he would “not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process.”

“The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out,” he said in the letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. “The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last-minute character assassination will not succeed.”

Kavanaugh referenced the allegations of sexual misconduct against him as “smears, pure and simple…Such grotesque and obvious character assassination—if allowed to succeed—will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service,” he wrote.

The letter was sent out just hours following President Donald Trumps reconfirmed his support for Kavanaugh, less than 24 hours after another woman came brought on a new set of sexual misconduct allegations against him.

“He is a fine man with an unblemished past, these are highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers,” Trump told reporters in New York, where he’ll be attending the United Nations General Assembly. “Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person. And I am with him all the way.”

“There is a chance this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything,” added Trump. “It is totally political.”

His comments came after a report by The New Yorker whereby Deborah Ramirez said that while she and Kavanaugh both attended Yale University in the early 1980s, he pulled down his pants and exposed himself to her.

“I remember a penis being in front of my face,” said Ramirez, who said that she had been drinking. “I knew that’s not what I wanted, even in that state of mind.”

Three sources familiar with the accusation told NBC about Ramirez’s accusation in the last week. Ramirez, 53, is the same age as Kavanaugh and they both graduated from the university in 1987.

On Monday, the Montgomery County Sentinel released a report stating that local investigators were looking at more allegations against Kavanaugh following an unconfirmed witness that came forward. The paper said it was unclear whether the claims were related to those tweeted by attorney Michael Avenatti on Sunday night.

The Montgomery County Police Department disputed elements of the report in an afternoon statement. “At this time, the Montgomery County Police Department has not received a request by any alleged victim nor a victim’s attorney to initiate a police report or a criminal investigation regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh,” it said.

The new allegations come days before a scheduled Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Thursday in which the first woman accusing Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school, Christine Blasey Ford, will testify publicly and Kavanaugh will testify in response.

On Monday, most congressional Republicans remained silent on the latest allegations, with a few publicly defending Kavanaugh as Democrats called for either a delay in a planned hearing on Thursday with the first accuser or a formal FBI investigation into the most recent allegations.

“I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh,” Feinstein wrote in a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the Judiciary Committee chair.

Will Stock Prices Head Higher On Thursday?

Published

stock price today

US stocks were mixed on Thursday. As most investors head into a long holiday weekend, there are several things helping to drive stock prices higher on Thursday.

IPOs Boost Market Sentiment

On April 18 the stock market saw two big IPOs.  Both Zoom Video (ZM) and Pinterest (PINS) made their public debuts.  For the most part, investors remained skiddish about the latest series of IPOs.  What was the reason? A few weeks ago the market witnessed the much anticipated Lyft (LYFT) IPO that has ended is disaster. 

The day that Lyft went public, share prices briefly hit highs of $88.60 before closing the day in the red. This trend hasn’t stopped since then.  Current stock prices show the company’s shares trading around $55. This abysmal figure is a far cry from even its IPO price of $72.

Needless to say, both Pinterest and Zoom have remained relatively flat. Zoom shares traded in a range of $$60.32 to $66. Pinterest saw a trading channel of $23.05 to $24.99.

Micro-Cap Stocks Rally Back

During the early morning session, the Russell Microcap Index saw a sharp drop to lows of $578.33. But since then, the index has continued to rally higher, nearly surpassing its opening price as of 12:30 PM.  What is a microcap stock? These stocks represent companies with a market capitalization of $50 million to $300 million.  Traditionally, investors will see plenty of penny stocks on the list.

The higher volatility attracts investors to these equities.  This morning, the stock price for a few microcap companies ended up skyrocketing on heavy volume.  Among the list of penny stocks, Amyris Inc. (AMRS), Mustang Bio (MBIO), Precipio Inc. (PRPO) and Uxin Limited (UXIN) hit scanners for volume and price movement.

With the short week, it’s likely that the markets could slow down during the afternoon session. Looking ahead to next week, investors will be watching for several key figures notwithstanding the growing list of companies reporting earnings.

Bill Riker, CEO of Liberty Defense, commented, “Liberty’s MOU Strategy and potential partners, which includes Vancouver Arena Limited Partnership, will be a key element to the Company’s success not only in distinguishing ourselves from other the competition but also providing the Company with valuable feedback in testing HEXWAVE in live indoor and outdoor environments. In the coming months, we expect to be able to announce a number of key partnerships through our MOU program that will not only help validate the opportunities for this type of technology but also show the depth and reach of the Company and its Advisors.”
