American Bar Association urges Senate to delay Kavanaugh vote

Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers said Wednesday they have given the Senate sworn affidavits from four people who say she told them well before Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination that she had been sexually assaulted when she was much younger.

Avenatti said he is waiting for a response from Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, over Swetnick's allegations about Kavanaugh. I'm confident he will be confirmed in the very near future, ' McConnell told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday morning.

Kavanaugh and President Trump, along with other supporters including Sen.

That time frame would have Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court before the allegations against him came to light. Mitchell will ask the questions for the GOP senators, while Democrats will do their own questioning.

She goes on to claim: "On numerous occasions" she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "overly aggressive [behavior] with girls and not taking "No" for an answer". Ford was endearingly convincing in declaring that her only true motive in coming forward was to help the assembled senators - and the country - by informing them of what she personally experienced at the hands of Brett M. Kavanaugh. Regarding Swetnick's claims specifically, he reportedly said the following via the White House: "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

"I'm used to being collegial", she said at one point.

At the University of Houston Law School, the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh was must-see television Thursday.

Judge Kavanaugh is thought to have denied the allegations contained in the letter.

While Judge watched, Ford said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes. Both boys were inebriated, she said.

The new accuser, Julie Swetnick of Washington, said Kavanaugh took part in efforts during high school to get girls intoxicated so that a group of boys could have sex with them.

"Sometimes I had too many beers".

Kavanaugh sent the committee a copy of his calendar from the summer of 1982, which did not mention the specific party in question.

Swetnick alleged she became a victim of "one of these "gang" or "train" rapes". The Associated Press has not been able to corroborate them, and continues to investigate.

"His failure to ask, in my view, for an FBI investigation, is tantamount to a cover up", said Blumenthal.

Meanwhile at the United Nations, President Trump made very clear that he's on board with Kavanaugh, as he lashed out at Democrats, and one of the judge's accusers. Surely she would have reported it to police if the encounter was "as bad as she says", the president said. "The lawyer to porn stars has just taken this debacle to an even lower level".

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said Thursday night that he planned to review Kavanaugh and Ford's testimony overnight before making a final decision.

'I don't doubt this accusation complicates the equation for folks considering his nomination, ' Kyl said.

"The second accuser has nothing", Trump said.

Responding to Christine Blasey Ford, who has alleged that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a house party in the early 1980s, the federal appeals court judge declared his innocence under oath.

And several Republican senators are closely watching how the allegations against Kavanaugh play out. I never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes.

"I did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved", the letter said, and referred to his previous letter sent on September 18. "Do you mind telling me so I can read about him?"
