American Bar Association calls for renewed Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of Kavanaugh

The lawmakers huddled after testimony Thursday from Christine Blasey Ford, who alleged Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while in high school, and from Kavanaugh, who denied it. Kavanaugh denied the accusation. "They need to be heard", Hogan said on Tuesday, according to Politico.

She described in detail how an inebriated Kavanaugh and another teen, Mark Judge, locked her in a room at a house party as Kavanaugh was grinding and groping her.

"That's not the type of behavior that anybody at any age should do", she said.

She said her most powerful memory was "the uproarious laughter between the two, and them having fun at my expense".

In Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, two Democratic senators with 2020 ambitions - New Jersey's Cory Booker and California's Kamala Harris - took center stage, asking the most aggressive questions and galvanizing both progressive opposition and conservative support.

"This confirmation process has become a national disgrace", he told the committee.

Control of the Senate hangs in the balance; a Democratic takeover could block any future Trump nominees. It's certainly not about protecting Dr. Ford.

At times, Kavanaugh's frustrations boiled over. "History will show you are a true profile in courage", Sen.

"I am innocent of this charge", Kavanaugh thundered.

What happened to the prosecutor?

They've accused Ford and the other women of making unproven allegations and have questioned why they'd not publicly revealed them for decades. Then she quickly faded away.

Sanders said Ford was wronged by someone, "but not at the hands of Judge Kavanaugh".

Both Turkey and Germany warned against such a military offensive on the province, which is home to around 3.5 million civilians. But a rapprochement could unlock investment from German manufacturers who have been deterred by Turkey's recent volatility.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., speaks during a Senate Justice Committee hearing with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh as he testifies, Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018 on Capitol Hill in Washington. From there, each GOP senator handled his own questions, while Mitchell sat silently nearby.

Earlier, during four hours of emotionally-charged testimony, Blasey Ford, 51, said she was "100 percent" certain Kavanaugh was her assailant and it was "absolutely not" a case of mistaken identify.

"I only have a few seconds left and I'll just ask you a direct question: did you watch Dr. Ford's testimony?"

Democrats were incensed in their remarks Friday about the partisan nature of Kavanaugh's pushback, but Shah said that Kavanaugh "was correctly and rightly pointing out how broken this process is".

As her time for questioning Ford was coming to an end, Mitchell rhetorically asked Ford about the best way to question victims of sex crimes. "I feel ambushed as the majority", he said.

Republicans quickly expressed their determination to move forward.

At issue was whether the Democrats, who had first received Ford's allegations in an early July letter that she sent to her local congresswoman, had purposefully waited to make them public until after the initial confirmation hearings were over and the Senate was preparing to vote.

Bush has spoken to Republicans Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of ME as well as Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia over the past several days - in an effort that the personal familiar with the outreach says Bush initiated.

As to whether he had a message for undecided senators like Collins and Murkowski, Trump said "they have to do what they think is right" and be comfortable with themselves.

But Democrats have not figured out whether they will boycott Friday afternoon's committee vote.
