Kavanaugh denies two additional accusations to Senate Judiciary Committee

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh leaves his Chevy Chase home Wednesday

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh leaves his Chevy Chase home Wednesday

"I will not be intimidated" by what he called a "coordinated and well-funded" effort by Democrats to "drive me out", Kavanaugh said.

Through a spokeswoman, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said Kavanaugh's nomination should not proceed without a full investigation of the allegations.

Rachel Mitchell, counsel for Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans, questions Christine Blasey Ford as Senators Ben Sasse, R-NE, Ted Cruz, R-TX, Mike Lee, R-UT, and John Cornyn, R-TX, listen during the hearing on September 27, 2018.

Graham concluded by exhorting his Republican colleagues not to allow the allegations against Kavanaugh to derail his nomination.

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

On Wall Street, traders were watching the hearings with one eye while they went about their business, said Ken Polcari, director of the NYSE floor division at O'Neil Securities in NY. These are last-minute smears, pure and simple.

Lawyers for Kavanaugh sent five pages from his decades-old calendar to the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday, notifying them they meant to use the pages to prove Kavanaugh wasn't at a 1982 house party where Ford alleges Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her, tried to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth.

Attorney Avenatti tweeted a sworn testimony from the third accuser Swetnick.

Kavanaugh also tried to undermine Ford's case by saying she is unable to say how she got to the party and how she got home, noting she could not yet drive. Dianne Feinstein of California, asked how she could be sure that Kavanaugh was the attacker, Ford said, "The same way I'm sure I'm talking to you right now".

He also apologised for the harsh treatment - which has included death threats - that both Ms Ford and Mr Kavanaugh have endured.

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.

During her opening remarks on Thursday, Ford said she was "terrified" to be there but felt it was her "civic duty". "He is just looking for attention and doesn't want people to look at his past record and relationships - a total low-life!"

Kasich said on Wednesday it would be "in the best interest of our country and the integrity of the court" to hold off on a vote, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

In Kavanaugh's prepared testimony, he acknowledged drinking in high school with his friends, but said he'd never done anything "remotely resembling" what Ford describes.

"When there is no corroboration ... after I have been in the public sphere without a whiff of this kind of allegation", he said. "I spoke to somebody 38 years ago, and it may not be good, '" Trump said, adding, "The people that have complained to me about it the most about what's happening is women". And he teared up and paused when stating that his ten-year-old daughter had told him that they should pray for Dr. Ford.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters late Tuesday that, no matter what happens in Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will not be afforded the "presumption of innocence", when it comes to charges he sexually assaulted a female classmate in high school.
