  • Republican Leaders Have Reached an Accord With the Dems

Moments after pivotal Sen.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-10 Friday to approve Kavanaugh's nomination, sending him to the full Senate for final consideration.

Two Republicans would need to defect, with all Democrats voting in opposition, in order to sink Kavanaugh in the full Senate vote. But it's hard to forget.

Flake said he was overwhelmed by "the hearing itself, the aftermath of the hearing, watching pundits talk about it on cable TV, seeing the protesters outside, encountering them in the hall". The women in the video have since identified themselves as Maria Gallagher and Ana Maria Archila. "This is not tolerable", they were filmed telling Mr Flake.

"I feel like I have a responsibility for my children and for myself - for humans", said Caitlin Corbett, a mother of two from Logan Square who attended the protest Friday with her 18-month-old daughter.

For instance, Judge Clarence Thomas, who was nominated by George H W Bush, has been a Supreme Court judge for almost 27 years and Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was nominated by the then president Bill Clinton, has served on the bench for over 25 years.

Kavanaugh himself has explicitly said he is not questioning whether Ford had been attacked "by someone, at some point". Kavanaugh denies both Ford's and Ramirez's allegations.

Kavanaugh, however, denied all the allegations during the testimony, saying that his reputation and that of his family has been "totally and permanently destroyed".

With the hearing well underway, Sen.

"Throughout this process, I've been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, I've done a number of "background" calls directly with the Senate, and yesterday, I answered questions under oath about every topic the senators and their counsel asked me. She was very good in many respects", Trump said.

Russian Spy Poisoning Suspect Was "Honoured By Putin"
Britain has said the attack received approval "at a senior level of the Russian state", an accusation Moscow has fiercely denied. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova dismissed the claims, saying they are part of an "information campaign".

Asked about Keyser's statement, Ford could only shrug, "Leland has significant health challenges and I'm happy that she's focusing on herself". She looked down again. She has no recollection of such a party, she said. "They may have been there prior to the allegations against him because of his position on some issues". He said, "Thank you", but didn't response to questions on whether he believed Ford's testimony.

The US investigative agency FBI will probe sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"This country's being ripped apart", said Flake. Let's listen in to what he said. And I - I've heard from friends, close friends.

"I've ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh's file", Trump said in a statement.

The women do not identify themselves in the video, but Archila's group sent a press release following the confrontation confirming it was Archila speaking on camera.

Ms. Mitchell asked what she told Ms. Keyser the next day.

Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27, about her allegations that Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a Maryland house party in the summer of 1982.

Archila said she believes the confrontation affected him. The New York Times also reported on the accusation while noting it could not corroborate the charge. Her story dated to 1982, when they were both teenagers. She said she didn't tell anyone before this week.

The American Bar Association and Heather Gerken, dean of Yale Law School where Kavanaugh earned his law degree, called for a delay in Kavanaugh's confirmation to allow an investigation.
