Key GOP Senators Condemn Trump’s Mockery Of Christine Blasey Ford
04 October, 2018, 08:32 | Author: Trevor Moore
In the Senate, the savage national debate over power and who to believe has above all been about the math.
Mr Flake of Arizona is a closely watched swing vote as Republicans can potentially only afford one defection if they are to confirm their nominee.
Separately, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, told reporters, "The president's comments were just plain wrong".
But her ex-boyfriend's declaration said Dr Ford had helped a friend prepare for a polygraph test for a job interview and "explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked and helped (her) become familiar and less nervous about the exam", using her background in psychology. Murkowski told CNN, "In my view, the Federal Bureau of Investigation needs to be free to do its job as the investigating body".
"I wish he hadn't done it", Flake said.
Neither senator is up for re-election this year. In her first speech on the Senate floor, she announced that it was her "duty" to support Kavanaugh. She made time to appear at Trump's rally in Southaven, Mississippi.
Also on the ballot is Sen. Vice President Mike Pence, who would be brought in to break a tie, is due to campaign Monday in Texas for both Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Pete Sessions, but officials with both campaigns braced for changes. Protesters shouted at her on the way in and out of a hearing Wednesday.
Besides Flake and Collins, Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota have yet to declare their positions on Kavanaugh. Also interviewed were two other people Ford said were present but in a different room: Patrick "P.J".
McConnell said the FBI would deliver to the Senate the results of its investigation into claims that Kavanaugh sexually abused women.
Outside Phoenix, Rep. Martha McSally, a sexual assault survivor herself, said the issues raised by Ford are "pretty personal".
Michael Mukasey, a former USA attorney general under President George W. Bush, said the supplemental FBI background investigation would cover credible allegations of misconduct. "The court is in session".
The letter to the Senate cites two laws governing bias and recusal, noting, "Judges must step aside if they are at risk of being perceived as or of being unfair".
"I just got this text does anyone know what it means?" The good news: Republicans, women and men, are overwhelmingly sticking by the nominee.
A Quinnipiac University poll conducted in the days after Ford and Kavanaugh testified showed that public opinion had started to tilt against Kavanaugh, with 48 percent of voters opposed to his confirmation and 42 percent in favor. A September Quinnipiac poll found a almost even split in opinions on the confirmation. The incident happened in 1985 when Kavanaugh, an undergrad at Yale at the time, mistook a 21-year-old man at a local bar for Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40 (who had performed in the area that night), and allegedly threw ice and a beer at him, causing injury.
Mukasey spoke with reporters on a call organized by Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative group that backs Kavanaugh's confirmation.
But at a rally Tuesday night in Mississippi, Trump changed his tune, ridiculing Ford's memory of the purported events.
While some senators from both parties have said they'd like at least a summary of the findings to be released, Senate procedures call for such checks to be kept confidential and it's unclear what will be released, other than through leaks.
Fan appeared in the X-Men and Iron Man film franchises and has more than 62 million followers online in China . I failed my country which nurtured me; I failed the society which trusted me; I failed the fans who loved me.
It is not a surprise that Facebook was hit with a class-action lawsuit after announcing its security breach on Friday. The attackers hijacked these access tokens, which helped them log into any of the millions of Facebook accounts.
"'I don't know.' 'But I had one beer, that's the only thing I remember, '" the president said in a mocking tone. On Twitter, Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for Ford , called Trump's remarks "a vicious, vile and soulless attack".
The fight was openly discussed by rapper Nicki Minaj after the two nearly came to blows at a New York Fashion Week party. TMZ is reporting that Cardi will have to appear in court, and she may be charged after allegedly ordering the attack.
Yet McSorley ran freely through the Ohio State defense much of the night - sometimes on designed runs, sometimes on scrambles. He wasn't the only one getting beat, but it was something I noticed on some of those delayed handoffs to the outside.
Trump and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders have dismissed Woodward's book as a work of fiction. Mr Trump said it was a "scary time for young men" who could become the subject of false allegations.

Graham also went out of his way to claim that Kavanaugh isn't a "stumbling, bumbling drunk" or a real rapist like Bill Cosby . Blasey Ford, Republicans deferred to a female sex-crimes prosecutor hired specifically to ask questions.
Mattis has said there was "no doubt" Russian Federation funded groups inside Macedonia to campaign against the name change. The critics included President Gjorge Ivanov, who called the agreement with Greece a "flagrant violation of sovereignty".
