Senate Judiciary Committee Schedules Friday Vote for Kavanaugh

S Kavanaugh Ford hearing in the Senate

S Kavanaugh Ford hearing in the Senate

Sanders tweeted that Graham "has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined".

"But you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy", he continued.

Other progressive groups have also called for Kavanaugh to be removed from the appeals court he serves on, which is among the most powerful in the country behind the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh is now a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Since Ford went public with her allegations, more women have come forward.

During her opening remarks on Thursday, Ford said she was "terrified" to be there but felt it was her "civic duty".

The Republican Party posted online videos of women supporting Kavanaugh throughout Ford's testimony. Kavanaugh testified later on Thursday afternoon.

Perhaps Brett Kavanaugh was a virgin for many years after high school.

Although Ford never wrote a second letter, she said Eshoo's staff eventually passed a copy of her original letter to Feinstein's office on July 30 with the request that it be 'kept confidential'.

Ford was a student at Holton-Arms School, a private all-girls school in Bethesda, Maryland, when she attended a house party that she believes took place in 1982. Kavanaugh's testimony had not yet begun. Senators watched intently, the only sound the clicking of cameras.

Wallace went on to say his daughters brought up their own experiences with sexual while the family was discussing the allegations against Kavanaugh over email.

Fed hikes key rate for third time this year
The central bank stuck with its previous forecast for a fourth rate increase before year's end and for three more hikes in 2019. But the gains faded in the last 30 minutes of trading after Fed Chairman Jerome Powell finished speaking at a news conference.

Among the television viewers on Thursday was Trump, who has mocked the credibility of Kavanaugh's accusers.

White House officials such as Kellyanne Conway and press secretary Sarah Sanders praised Graham's comments.

During a break in the hearing, some of Kavanaugh's strongest supporters gave no indications of wavering. "What would be better is if you had [the ability] to develop the evidence through continuous questioning over a period of time". "She's articulate, an attractive person". Trump said. "Because I've had a lot of false charges against me".

Ford said she finally opened up about Kavanaugh's role to a "couple of close friends on the beach in California" in conversations 'over the next two days'. Later, she told Sen.

She criticized the decision to set a hearing for the Kavanaugh allegations without a thorough, neutral investigation and input from experts who can include context about things like delayed reporting of sexual assault, she said.

Kavanaugh also allegedly put his hand over Ford's mouth so she could not scream. She also described nervousness while flying. The prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell, did not speak again for the balance of the hearing.

Ford said she managed to escape after Judge jumped on top of Kavanaugh and the boys toppled off of her. Said Mitchell, "I just wanted to let you know, I'm very sorry". Ford explained how she was weighing whether to come forward about the incident. But under the committee's procedures, the career prosecutor was limited to five minutes at a time, interspersed between Democrats' questions, creating a choppy effect as she tried piecing together the story.

He offered a command to Senate Republican leaders: "The Senate must vote!"

They followed the lead of Kavanaugh, who at times interrupted Democrats and asked them whether they had misbehaved themselves.

Senators who don't trust or much like each other will be charged with settling a vicious debate - with President Donald Trump hardly a bystander, or a predictable force.

And on Wednesday, a woman represented by Mr Avenatti - who shot to fame as the lawyer taking on the president for porn actress Stormy Daniels - made another accusation of misconduct.
