Trump says he would have pushed Kavanaugh through

Kavanaugh will enter the hearing room and read his opening statement. "Their aim is to get Kavanaugh confirmed regardless of his background". Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell has been preparing a weekend session to run the procedural clock out, an unusual move reflecting the high stakes and the desire to let GOP senators campaign on Kavanaugh's confirmation in the November election.

In his prepared remarks, Kavanaugh reiterates his denial of Ford's allegations, and calls subsequent accusations from Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick "false and uncorroborated". She says she was "unable to fight off the boys raping me" and told two people about it. "I remember her saying the assailant was now a federal judge". Swetnick also implies that Kavanaugh and Judge participated in the assaults themselves.

Julie Swetnick became the third woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct after her lawyer tweeted a declaration of the allegations on Wednesday.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., a member of the Judiciary Committee, responds to reporters' questions on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid scrutiny of a woman's claim he sexually assaulted her at a party when they were in high school, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018. But here is where we are: "You take this one step at a time", Grassley said. "And she said she was totally inebriated, and she was all messed up, and she doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him". I am innocent of this charge.

The Judiciary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday. "And he's been treated very unfairly by the Democrats", Trump said Wednesday.

"Well, I think the Senate, the Republicans could not be nicer in the way they are handling this", Trump said.

The White House had no immediate comment.

Senate Judiciary Committee Recommends Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court
While Kavanaugh denies the charge, some Democrats already are raising the prospect of impeachment if he's confirmed. "When Dr. The committee on Thursday heard emotional and sometimes combative testimony from both Kavanaugh and Ford.

Ford and Kavanaugh are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

According to a committee aide, in an email to Avenatti on Wednesday, Republican committee staff said that "yesterday committee investigators interviewed Judge Kavanaugh again, under penalty of felony".

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of forcing her onto a bed and grinding against her in an attempt at sex during one high school-era party. He has said, "I've never sexually assaulted anyone in high school or otherwise".

The woman also made other accusations in her statement.

She said that Kavanaugh's declaration of "innocence" and lack of sexual inactivity in high school on Fox News is a lie. She describes the pair as "joined at the hip" and says she "consistently saw them together in many social settings". She said she now holds security clearances Department of Treasury, the U.S. Mint, and the Internal Revenue Service. She alleges in an affidavit Kavanaugh was present at a party where she and other girls were drugged and "gang" raped.

'I think it is awful what the Democrats have done, ' the president raged.
