Kavanaugh accuser details alleged sexual assault to U.S. Senate committee

Brett Kavanaugh's #MeToo reckoning

Brett Kavanaugh's #MeToo reckoning

Kavanaugh denied her allegation as he has the others.

President Donald Trump, who is in NY attending the annual UN General Assembly session, came out in support of his Supreme Court nominee and slammed Avenatti.

"I am innocent of this charge", Kavanaugh says. Kavanaugh has denied any sexual misconduct then or in college at Yale, though more women alleging sexual misconduct have come forward.

In the sworn affidavit, Swetnick claimed she met Kavanaugh in "approximately 1980-1981" and attended several house parties for which Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were also present.

NBC News reports: "The hearing will begin with opening statements from the leaders of the committee, which won't have an imposed time limit".

At one point during Klobuchar's questioning, he cut off her and said, "Can we hear from Dr. Ford?".

"I was underneath one of them while the two laughed", she said.

What that, Trump cast his lot with the accused in what has become a national reckoning over gender and sexual consent, and not just in furtherance of a long-sought conservative makeover of the high court. And in a September 17 interview with Judiciary Committee staffers, he said he didn't recall ever meeting her.

"I believed he was going to rape me", she will say, according to her prepared testimony.

Whether these accusations are true or not, Senate Democrats have gotten what they wanted out of them.

Some Democrats have called on Kavanaugh to withdraw in light of the allegations.

Judge Kavanaugh will be testifying Thursday on Blasey Ford's allegations that he groped her and pinned her down while he was drunk at a party in high school. Judge Kavanaugh answered almost 1,300 written questions submitted to senators after the hearing, more than all prior Supreme Court nominees.

In a clash along a polarized nation's political and cultural fault lines, Kavanaugh and Ford were the only witnesses invited to testify before the panel of 11 Republicans - all men - and 10 Democrats.

"This is not a criminal trial for which the involvement of an experienced sex crimes prosecutor would be appropriate", Bromwich said in the letter, as reported by Fox News, echoing previous requests that the senators themselves, not counsel, ask questions. I couldn't see who pushed me.

Ford said she could not recall all the details of the polygraph or how former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Jeremiah Hanafin was chosen to administer the test. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegation. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., asked to what degree of certainty she believed Kavanaugh assaulted her.

In evidence for Thursday's Senate hearing, Mr Kavanaugh acknowledges drinking in high school with his friends, but says he has never done anything "remotely resembling" the sexual misconduct alleged by his chief accuser. It is a job interview for Judge Kavanaugh. Even before Prof. Blasey Ford's testimony, the Republican majority on the committee scheduled a vote on the nomination for Friday and are pushing for a vote of the full Senate on his nomination next week.

At one company, employers cleared the decks so its staff can tune in.

Judge Kavanaugh has yet to respond formally to this specific allegation.
