Trump says his past accusers influence his thinking on Kavanaugh

Not seeing the video?

For 10 days, Trump has watched as allegations of sexual misconduct have swirled around Brett Kavanaugh, his nominee for the Supreme Court.

Does Republicans' unusual strategy come across the way they want, or does it backfire? "I also look forward to what Judge Kavanaugh has to say".

In the other two, Ford did not name Kavanaugh but said she was assaulted by a federal judge.

When asked whether there was any chance she was mistaken about the identity of her attacker, Blasey Ford said, "Absolutely not". "We'll wait to see if she gets that invitation and we'll go from there". "I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking", she said in the statement.

"I really think that it's awful what's going on nowadays and how women are mistreated", Trickovic said.

"I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room", she said.

Most importantly for her case, though, Ford came across as a normal, authentic person thrust into an unreal situation.

So how do we assess what mark it will leave on Kavanaugh's nomination, on Republicans, on Democrats, on President Donald Trump and on the state of USA politics?

Kavanaugh on Wednesday once again rejected the allegations as "last minute smears" that were "false and uncorroborated".

George Hartmann, a spokesman for Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, said the hearing is still going forward Thursday as scheduled.

Under questioning from Senator Feinstein, Dr Ford said she has suffered from claustrophobia and anxiety as a result of her experience and initially struggled when at college.

The university professor told a dramatic US Senate hearing on Thursday (local time) she thought he was going to rape and perhaps accidentally kill her.

The hearing, which has riveted Americans and intensified the political polarization in the United States, occurred against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and assault.

She warned colleagues that "the entire country is watching how we handle these allegations" and criticized a "rush to judgement" on the allegations and quick push for confirmation, calling it a "real question of character for someone who is asking for a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court". Hanafin noted in the report that two other polygraph tests were conducted, and both indicated that Dr. Ford was not lying.

Ginsburg is the second female to sit on the Supreme Court, behind President Ronald Reagan-appointed Sandra Day O'Connor.

She alleges that in 1982, whilst they were both in high school Kavanaugh pushed her down, placed his hand over her mouth and attempted to remove her clothing. But their mere existence means Kavanaugh is now being depicted as a party boy who doesn't respect women. While Democrats on the committee asked questions that bolstered Ford, Republicans handed the reins over to a female sex-crimes prosecutor to ask their questions for them.

Two affidavits, from Ford's husband Russell Ford and from the coach of their son's baseball team, say Ford named Kavanaugh as the alleged assailant.

In his prepared testimony, which was released to media Wednesday, Kavanaugh denied the allegations of sexual assault.

"It's happened to me many times", he said, claiming he had been accused - falsely - by "four or five women".

"Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter".

After recounting what she remembered of the alleged assault, Sen.
