Kavanaugh denies allegation after accuser gives testimony

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony: ‘This is a disaster for the Republicans’

Lindsey Graham forcefully defended Brett Kavanaugh against an allegation of sexual assault during a tense Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday and accused Democrats of wanting to "destroy" the life of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

In the editorial, it didn't say that it's beyond a doubt that Kavanaugh committed the assault Ford alleges.

The reversal is significant given Kavanaugh has repeatedly cited his Catholic faith and Jesuit education in defending himself against Ford's accusations.

Collins has said she believes that Ford and Deborah Ramirez, Ford's second accuser, should be heard by the Senate before there's a vote.

Before the Senate hearing on Thursday, Ford had never appeared on camera, and was only depicted in news media reports with a grainy photo lifted from the internet.

The ABA said the FBI should investigate the numerous sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.

Ford broke her silence after 36 years, telling senators she originally wished to remain anonymous but once her story became public, she believed it was her "civic duty" to come forward. Aides said they thought Kavanaugh was effectively fighting back and expressed optimism he could survive the process.

But with an eager-to-please demeanour and zero show of anger during the questioning, Ford stuck by her account.

Democrats continued to seek an FBI investigation of the two women's allegations, which would take several days in each case. Trump, speaking in NY where he was attending the United Nations General Assembly, threw his full weight behind Kavanaugh.

The contentious Friday morning Judiciary Committee meeting began with Sen.

After recounting what she remembered of the alleged assault, Sen.

The announcement to keep the current schedule comes fewer than two hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee wrapped its day-long, blockbuster hearing of Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

While some Republicans and Trump have called the allegations by Ford and the two other women part of a smear campaign, Ford told the committee she had no political motivation, adding: "I am an independent person and I am no one's pawn". On the Senate Judiciary Committee he praised the judge and seemed to indicate he would vote for him. Republicans see her as a Democratic swing vote and have been pushing for her to confirm Kavanaugh.

When asked by reporters earlier this week whether there should be a full FBI investigation into the allegations, Murkowski responded, "It would sure clear up all the questions, wouldn't it?"

The bitter fight over Kavanaugh's nomination is unfolding just weeks before the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to seize majority control of Congress from the Republicans. She is "100 percent" certain it was Kavanaugh.

He also took issue with the notion of waiting for an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh.
