US Senate Judiciary Committee sets Kavanaugh vote for Friday

Brett Kavanaugh: In terse email exchanges, Republicans stand firm on rules for sexual assault hearing

We can not guarantee that it is suitable for the visually or hearing impaired.

Brett Kavanaugh looks at his wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh at the start of a FOX News interview with Martha MacCallum, Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, in Washington, about allegations of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing for Thursday for Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who last week accused him of sexual assault in 1982. Reuters was not immediately able to verify the substance of the woman's allegation. He says she named the attacker as Kavanaugh. "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Kavanaugh states, "I have never sexually assaulted anyone-not in high school, not in college, not ever".

Avenatti, who first rose to fame for representing Stormy Daniels, had been teasing the announcement earlier this week, but his Wednesday morning tweets were nevertheless a surprise.

"I strongly believe Judge Kavanaugh should withdraw from consideration", Schumer said in a statement.

Ford's allegation and another accusation by a second woman have imperiled Kavanaugh's chances of confirmation to the lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court. "And we're doing it strictly to depoliticize the whole operation, to offer Dr. Ford the professional environment she asked for", Grassley said.

The committee also released a two-page prepared statement from Kavanaugh for Thursday's hearing in which he "categorically and unequivocably" denies Ford's allegation. The controversy has unfolded ahead of the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats seek to take control from the Republicans. "I stopped to speak with her, and she told me she had read a recent social media post I had written about my own experience with sexual assault".

The Bills will look to continue their dominant defensive play against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers next week. Josh Allen caps an 11-play 65-yard drive by going over the top and extending the ball for a touchdown and a 24-0 lead.

Trump had initially been uncharacteristically restrained in his comments on the matter, but has since taken to attacking the women's credibility and accusing them of being part of a Democratic plot to block Kavanaugh's confirmation. She said she had been nearly raped by someone who was now a federal judge. "I think I might have pushed it forward a lot faster", Trump said, calling Kavanaugh "an absolute gem".

In a sworn affidavit, Ms Swetnick alleged Judge Kavanaugh was involved in the drugging and sexual assault of girls at house parties in the 1980s. They come from Ford's husband and three family friends, who say Ford mentioned the incident in 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2017. Susan Collins - is among the most watched members related to Kavanaugh's nomination.

During the interview, Kavanaugh denied sexually assaulting anyone.

"I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends".

Kavanaugh has been asked before about the culture of partying and drinking from his high school days. He says she covered her mouth to prevent her screams after he pinned her on a bed.

President Trump also defending his Supreme Court nominee and criticizing Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Kavanaugh's latest accuser, writing on Twitter, "Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh". "Now Republicans don't even need to hear her before they move ahead with a vote". A vote in the full Senate could happen as early as next Tuesday, senior Senate Republicans have said.

Hoping the hearing will yield no new surprises, the Judiciary Committee scheduled its own vote on Kavanaugh for Friday, and Republican leaders laid plans that could keep the full Senate in session over the weekend and produce a final showdown roll call soon after - close to the October 1 start of the high court's new term. It's a con. They went into a back room and talked with each other and they laugh at what they're getting away with.
