Protesters gathered on Capitol Hill as a second allegation of sexual misconduct emerged against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a development that has further imperiled his nomination to the Supreme Court, forced the White House and Senate Republicans to go on the defensive and fueled calls from Democrats to postpone further action on his confirmation. President Trump is so far standing by his nominee. (AP)
