  • Even before hearing, GOP plots aggressive Kavanaugh confirmation strategy

"I tried to yell for help", Ford said, adding that Kavanaugh and a friend of his, Mark Judge, were "drunkenly laughing during the attack". - "would remember this evening".

Judge wrote that while he and Kavanaugh were friends in high school, they have not "spoken directly in several years". While delivering remarks at the Columbus School of Law, Kavanaugh said of his alma mater: "We had a good saying that we've held firm to to this day as the dean was reminding me before the talk, which is what happens at Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep".

She said both agreed to keep the letter confidential, but it was leaked to media outlets on September 14.

"If Senate Republicans proceed with his nomination, they will be prioritizing policy aims over a woman's report of an assault", the America magazine editors wrote.

"Indelible into the hippocampus is the laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense", Ford said.

Ford, her voice sometimes cracking with emotion, appeared in public for the first time to detail her allegations against Kavanaugh.

49ers fear Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL
The injury deals a serious blow to the 49ers (1-2), who had planned their rebuild around Garoppolo and now must turn again to C.J. Garoppolo won all five of his starts last season, leading to a $137.5 million contract this past offseason.

The committee now comprises 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats, leaving little margin for error for Republicans - if just one of them breaks ranks, the nomination will be left in limbo.

Avenatti also represents Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who alleges she was paid to keep a sexual relationship with US President Donald Trump quiet. As the Post points out, the hearing has especially resonated with victims of sexual assault - one of whom, a 76-year-old woman, was inspired to share her story with C-SPAN during one of the hearing's breaks. I am not questioning that Dr. Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) asked Ford at the hearing.

Mr Kavanaugh has steadfastly denied all the allegations. Graham said. "What house are they going to go to?"

Design agency Godfrey Dadich Partners says the ad was crafted in the same style as a 1991 full-page ad where 1,600 black women showed support for Anita Hill as she accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. She said Judge, who she has identified as being in the bedroom during the alleged altercation, was arranging shopping carts and seemed "nervous" and didn't want to speak with her.

The interview Kavanaugh and his wife gave to Fox News on Monday was intended largely to cast Kavanaugh in a "sympathetic" light and to humanize the man behind the allegations. And in the most lurid allegation yet, Julie Swetnick of Washington said in a sworn statement released Wednesday that Kavanaugh took part in efforts during high school to get girls intoxicated so that a group of boys could have sex with them.

Republicans can advance Kavanaugh's without any support from Democrats, but given their 51-49 seat majority in the chamber, Kavanaugh's supporters can only lose one vote and still advance his nomination.
