Trump says his past accusers influence his thinking on Kavanaugh

Trump says his past accusers influence his thinking on Kavanaugh

The committee has interviewed two men who came forward about the disputed assault at a summer house party.

"Nobody could listen to her deliver those words and talk about the assault and the impact it had had on her life and not have your heart go out to her", Wallace said.

A handful of moderate Republican senators who have not announced whether or not they support Kavanaugh could determine his fate. "My responsibility is to tell the truth".

Mr Kavanaugh has steadfastly denied all the allegations. When he was the author of the Starr Report, my daughter (from Boulder, Colorado) occasionally socialized with Brett Kavanaugh, ' it reads.

The remarks also mark the first time Kavanaugh has admitted he often drank in excess, saying he was "not ideal in those days". I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends.

Among those sitting in the six rows of chairs behind the witness table was Actress Alyssa Milano, an outspoken advocate of the Me Too movement. "And here's the thing that seals it for me".

Since Ford has come forward publicly, two other women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. We know some evidence already: Ford passed a lie detector test on her claims about Kavanaugh.

Another woman said Wednesday through her lawyer that Kavanaugh was present at a high school party where she was gang-raped, and that she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "highly inappropriate conduct, including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking "No" for an answer" at several parties. I denied the allegation immediately, unequivocally, and categorically.

The saga has hardened partisan battle lines in Washington and further raised the stakes for one of the most consequential posts in America.

Critics including Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer say he should withdraw from consideration, or that his nomination vote should be delayed.

'I will remain anonymous, but I feel obligated to inform you of this 1998 incident involving Brett Kavanaugh.

"It's possible I'll hear that and I'll say, 'Hey, I'll change my mind, '" Trump said.

"They were laughing with each other", Ford said.

The hearing opened with partisan barbs before either Ford or Kavanaugh testified. He planned to tell senators that he's not questioning whether Ford "may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time".

On the GOP's behalf, Mitchell asked a series of questions that tested Ford's memory and probed for inconsistencies.

"Every step of the way, the Democratic side refused to participate in what should have been a bipartisan investigation", Grassley said. Republicans have criticised the way the claims emerged shortly before his confirmation hearing, claiming they are part of a Democrat plot to derail his nomination.

Judiciary Committee spokesman Taylor Foy said late Wednesday that Republican aides 'have no reason to assign the letter credibility, and even if we did, we'd have no way to investigate the allegation as it was made anonymously and can not be corroborated'.

"It seems to me that that's what's happened, and that's correct, and that's what needs to happen here as well", she said.
