Kavanaugh calls certain allegations against him a ‘joke’ and a ‘farce’

Kavanaugh calls certain allegations against him a ‘joke’ and a ‘farce’

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, who sits on the Judiciary Committee, is typically considered a risk, along with Alaska Sen.

He accused liberals of using the accusations lodged against him as a "political hit", explaining the opposition to his was tied to the opposition to President Donald Trump. It seems that no one knows at this point if the votes to confirm Kavanaugh are there. "Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes".

Ms Ford will testify first at the hearing, which starts at 10am (3pm United Kingdom time) and at her request is being held in a small hearing room that seats only a few dozen spectators.

Kavanaugh, 53, struggled to hold back tears, particularly when he referred to his own family.

"I've never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not in college, not ever", he said.

The Hawaii senator also sent a fundraising email while the hearing was in session, prompting criticism that she was trying to use Ford's testimony to help her re-election campaign. "I have never done this to her or to anyone", he said. Kavanaugh's testimony had not yet begun. In Kavanaugh's testimony, he also said he was "100%" sure he did not sexual assault anyone.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump had not ruled out withdrawing Kavanaugh's nomination, pending the outcome of Thursday's hearing. The White House said he even watched a feed on Air Force One as he flew back from NY at the start of the Senate action.

When a male senator read Kavanaugh's denial, Ford appeared to shudder.

"You need more than an accusation for evidence. We're not a police state", Cornyn said. "And in the end, there is likely to be as much doubt as certainty going out of this room today", he said.

Ford said she finally opened up about Kavanaugh's role to a "couple of close friends on the beach in California" in conversations 'over the next two days'.

The Democratic senators will have free reign to ask questions.

She added: "I was just focused on what I was going to say and my fear about that". Later, she told Sen.

'In a letter on August 31, 2018, Senator Feinstein wrote that she would not share the letter without my consent, ' said Ford.

Ford said she remembered the boys laughing - a noise, she said on Thursday, that has been seared into her memory for 36 years.

Kavanaugh is now a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Ford describes the alleged assault. She also described nervousness while flying.

On behalf of the 11 Republicans, all men, Rachel Mitchell questioned Blasey. "I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school".

Ms Mitchell led Ms Ford through a detailed recollection of the events she says occurred on the day of the alleged incident.

Throughout both sides' questioning, she has kept a calm composure, though her voice at times sounds raw.

At times, Kavanaugh's frustrations boiled over. Mitchell asked who was financing her legal and security expenses.

Kavanaugh's teetering grasp on winning confirmation was evident when Sen.

Meanwhile, Baker took to Twitter to express his concern.

Republicans are concerned, among other reasons, that further investigations could push a vote past the November elections that may switch Senate control back to the Democrats and make consideration of any Trump nominee more hard.

Cornyn explained her absence, saying there was "some frustration among the senators that they thought there were arguments that needed to be made, that she frankly was not equipped to make".

A White House official who was not authorized to speak publicly said the West Wing saw the judge's opening statement as "game changing" and said Trump appeared to be reacting positively.

The shift in confidence among White House staff and Kavanaugh allies seemed to spring nearly entirely from the tone the judge set in the early moments of his opening statement, rather than the substance of his answers - which included explaining what he said was a crude term for flatulence and a drinking game known as Devil's Triangle.

Attorney Avenatti tweeted a sworn testimony from the third accuser Swetnick.
