Trump says his past accusers influence thinking on Kavanaugh

Why One Woman Who Signed Letter in Support of Kavanaugh Is Now Regretful

Kavanaugh added he has "never sexually assaulted anyone -not in high school, not in college, not ever".

Not only should his nomination to the Supreme Court be withdrawn, the leader of NARAL Pro-Choice said in statement - Kavanaugh should be kicked off the federal bench altogether.

Senators emerged from Thursday's hearing bitterly split into those tribes, with Democrats persuaded by Blasey's calm and unflustered account of being shoved onto a bed, pawed, almost stripped and prevented from screaming for help, while Republicans were moved by Kavanaugh, who bristled with red-faced outrage and grievance at what he called an orchestrated campaign to destroy his life.

The scene during the more than eight hour hearing was unlike any congressional proceeding in recent history.

Chuck Grassley has served as one of Iowa's senators since 1981.

"I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation against me by Dr Ford". Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Enter Graham, who said that if Democrats truly wanted an FBI investigation, they could have spoken up when Democratic Sen.

Christine Blasey Ford told congress on Thursday that she kept details of her alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh a closely-guarded secret for 36 years - and still has no idea who leaked her confidential letter about it to the media.

Democratic senators couldn't hide their irritation with Mitchell's questions.

"I intend no ill will toward Dr. Ford", Kavanaugh told the committee, starting to break down in tears. "Legal funding isn't a worthwhile line of questioning".

But Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said of Ford, "She's a good witness. If that's enough for you, God help us all as Republicans", said Sen. He flipped open the binder that held his notes - nearly every page had passages underlined, with annotations in the margins in thick black pen - and declared that no one had seen a draft of his opening statement except one of his former law clerks.

Graham ended his fiery remarks by calling on his fellow Republicans not to vote against Kavanaugh over the allegations. "This is 100 percent Brett Kavanaugh".

"This confirmation process has become a national disgrace".

She said she feared the personal consequences would be akin to "jumping in front of a train". The consequences will be with us for decades. She said she came forward not for political reasons, but because it was her "civic duty".

Christine Blasey Ford gave straightforward answers to questions about how she is paying for her legal team, a polygraph and other costs, taking the air out of a Republican attempt to impeach her testimony against Brett Kavanaugh.

At times, Kavanaugh's frustrations boiled over.

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. "I will have no further comment", Dolphin told the Times earlier this week, adding she just recently heard about the yearbook page.

"It does impact my opinion and you know why?"
