Kavanaugh team says Ford hasn't offered key info

Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge allegedly told ex-girlfriend about Georgetown Prep classmates having sex with drunken woman

Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge allegedly told ex-girlfriend about Georgetown Prep classmates having sex with drunken woman

According to Roll Call's Niels Lesniewski, this would allow McConnell to file cloture on Saturday, leading to a vote to limit debate on the nomination on Monday and a final vote on Tuesday or Wednesday.

The committee also scheduled a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination for Friday at 9:30 a.m. (1330 GMT).

"This fine nominee to the Supreme Court will receive a vote in this Senate in the near future", McConnell said on the Senate floor.

The lawyer representing Christine Blasey Ford has sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley expressing concern over the Republican's hiring of an "experienced sex crimes prosecutor" for Thursday's hearing.

Trump then turned his ire towards second accuser Deborah Ramirez, who told the New Yorker that Kavanaugh thrust his penis into her face without her consent at a house party during their Yale University days.

Senate Democrats countered that, if Republicans wanted to learn the facts about the nominee's past behavior, they would not have rejected calls for an FBI investigation of the allegations against him.

Trump, speaking in NY where he was attending the United Nations General Assembly, threw his full weight behind Kavanaugh.

Trump noted that he saw an interview with Kavanaugh and his wife on Fox News Monday night where Kavanaugh said he "never sexually assaulted anyone".

Those elections could shift the balance of power in Congress as Democrats seek to regain control from conservatives. He quoted talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh as saying, "You can kiss the MIDTERMS goodbye if you don't get highly qualified Kavanaugh approved".

"I Am Devastated": Michelle Guthrie Considering Legal Action After ABC Sacking
Mr Anderson stepped into the top job following the abrupt dismissal of Ms Guthrie yesterday, halfway through her five-year term. But we have a clear plan for the present and a vision for the future".

CBN News Chief Political Analyst David Brody says, "It's striking to see a Supreme Court nominee actually use that word "coordinated" because he's now invoking politics into the equation and we really haven't seen something like this in a very long time". "I think his conduct on the courts since verifies that.". The decision prompted an outcry from Democrats, whose 10 panel members include four women, given that senators typically do the questioning themselves.

"During our meal, Christine was visibly upset, so I asked her what was going on", Gildo-Mazzon says.

In the interview, Kavanaugh emphatically denied Ford's claim against him, telling MacCallum that he was a virgin through high school and for "many years after". Senate Democrats are expected to ask their own questions.

Women and men are sharply split over whether to confirm Kavanaugh. She has acknowledged consuming alcohol at the time, which clouded some of her memories.

Shortly after Justice Anthony M. Kennedy resigned from the Supreme Court, Koegler says Ford shared in an email that Kavanaugh was her alleged attacker. He said he did not question that perhaps Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted but said "what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone". And it might have been him. There are now no plans for Ramirez to testify. "I have faith in God and I have faith in the fairness of the American people", Kavanaugh said.

Comments by Murkowski on Tuesday after she met with McConnell could be an ominous sign for Kavanaugh.

The new accusation in a report from The New Yorker came just a few hours after negotiators had reached an agreement to hold an extraordinary public hearing on Thursday for Mr Kavanaugh and Ms Blasey Ford. He said he had a positive individual meeting with Kavanaugh before the confirmation hearings.

"I think we'll all be here all weekend", said Sen.
