Ford, Kavanaugh testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee

Sen. Jeff Merkley Sues To Prevent Final Vote On Brett Kavanaugh

However, Trump does not believe these allegations to be true, asserting, "The FBI told us they've investigated Judge Kavanaugh six times, five times, many times over the years".

Ford in her opening statement said she was "terrified" to be speaking publicly about the allegation but felt it was her "civic duty".

"People want fame. They want money", Trump said speaking at a news conference in NY on Wednesday. "She could feel that this was upon her and very sensibly decided the best thing to do at point was to come at this head on and be forthright and follow through on what she started".

And even if we did, we'd have no way to investigate the allegation as it was made anonymously and can not be corroborated.

But Trump dismissed those who have accused him of sexual assault as "women who got paid a lot of money to make up stories about me", saying "we caught them and the mainstream media refused to put it on television".

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) received a call from a man who claimed his "close acquaintance" had been sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh and pal Mark Judge on a docked boat in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1985. She says he held her down, covered her mouth, and tried to strip off her clothing. "He began running his hands over my body and grinding his hips into me", she says.

Mitchell was hired to avoid the optics of an all-male team of Republicans grilling Ford, a lesson learned from the 1991 Supreme Court nomination of Clarence Thomas.

Williams said she had not seen the Frenchman make a gesture and labelled his subsequent admission "a really confusing moment". The Channel 10 star snagged a one-on-one chat with the 23-time grand slam champ days after her defeat to Naomi Osaka .

Dr. Ford opened with an emotional, tearful recount of the alleged sexual attack by Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford has accused the appeals court judge of attempting to rape her when they were high school teenagers.

I am here today not because I want to be.

The Arizona senator then addressed a controversial tweet President Donald Trump sent out that claimed if Ford's accusation was "as bad as she says", it would have been reported.

In a loud voice, the conservative jurist told the Senate Judiciary Committee that his confirmation process had become "a national disgrace".

Kavanaugh has repeatedly and vehemently denied the allegations.

According to her prepared remarks, she will tell the committee, "I was pushed from behind into a bedroom" at a high school party.
