Kavanaugh, Ford set to testify in Senate Judiciary Committee hearing

View Larger

Mr Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge who has always been eyed for the Supreme Court, has repeatedly denied all the allegations, saying he had never heard of the latest accuser and calling her accusations "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone". "I had never told the details to anyone until May 2012".

Both Republicans and Democrats have admitted the confirmation process has been unfair to both Kavanaugh and Ford, whose personal lives have been cast in the spotlight.

Unlike the other allegations against Kavanaugh, the alleged incident in 1998 occurred when he was an adult.

Democratic senators asked Prof.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the second ranking-Republican, says the GOP conference will meet and "see where we are".

She says her goal is to be helpful.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly and vehemently denied the allegations.

Kavanaugh rejected that claim as "from the Twilight Zone".

Facing criticism from some Democratic senators for including Mitchell in the hearing, Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, told Sen.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, have also accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct and their allegations will also likely be discussed at the hearing. Ford alleges that one night in the summer of 1982, a drunken Kavanaugh forced her down on a bed, groped her and tried to take off her clothes.

"No federal judge, not a single one in the country, has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have".

"In retrospect, I said and did things in high school that make me cringe now".

Ford, a 51-year-old psychology professor, looked down and took a breath. When the group left, the author writes that an inebriated Kavanaugh physically assaulted his date, pushing her up against a wall "aggressively and sexually".

Ford and Kavanaugh will appear separately before the 21-member Senate panel, comprised of 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats. Blasey Ford and Justice Kavanaugh were students at nearby high schools, she said, Justice Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge pushed her into a room and locked the door.

Ford attorneys sent the Judiciary Committee a report on an August 8 lie-detector test she took on her allegations that states her answers were "not indicative of deception". "These interviews happened this week, according to the committee".

"Republican senators have delayed this for weeks now", Mr Trump said. Judge, through his lawyer, has said he does not wish to speak publicly.

"Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it just did", he said in a written statement.

You can get MORE of this report at People. "And outraged." Kavanaugh said.

Over the years, though, she told a few friends about the experience, and she told her husband before they were married that she had experienced a sexual assault, but didn't tell the details until a May 2012 counseling session with her husband. "I convinced myself that because Brett did not rape me, I should just move on, just pretend that it didn't happen".

However, he said he would listen attentively to the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh's first accuser and the only one willing to appear before the Senate, at the Judiciary Committee hearing scheduled for Thursday morning. "Do you mind telling me so I can read about him?" "When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming".

Republicans have hired an outside attorney, Phoenix prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, to handle much of their questioning.
