Judiciary Democrats Demand Kavanaugh Hearing Be Postponed Over Allegations

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer speaks during a weekly news conference on Capitol Hill

"When Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh and his original accuser Christine Blasey Ford deliver dueling testimony on Thursday, they will conjure drama of an intensity unusual even in the Trump administration".

In extraordinary and at times emotional testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Blasey Ford, a psychology professor in California, said it was "absolutely not" possible that she had mistakenly identified Kavanaugh as her attacker.

Since Ford's name became public this month, at least two other women have come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

"If you expect me to believe that Brett Kavanaugh was a serial rapist when he was sophomore, junior in high school, and he stopped and never did it again, you expect me to believe that any reasonable person would go to 10 parties where people were drugged and raped and not tell anybody it, I don't believe it".

The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman not looking his best today. Ford said Kavanaugh pushed her into a room and pinned her to a bed. It would be needed only if you couldn't take me out on the merits. Both Kavanaugh and Ford attended high school in Montgomery County, although they attended private schools.

According to NBC, the latest complaint says the assault took place whilst Judge Kavanaugh was drunk. "These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh".

Swetnick, through her lawyer Michael Avenatti, claims that Kavanaugh engaged "in highly inappropriate conduct, including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking "no" for an answer". And Democrats tell her, "I can't believe that someone would be OK with a man having allegations of sexual assault sitting on the Supreme Court".

The contrast between Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein, who is a couple of months older than he is, has been especially sharp. Judge Kavanaugh answered almost 1,300 written questions submitted to senators after the hearing, more than all prior Supreme Court nominees.

The Iowa senator said the letter Ford made available to Democrats months ago only surfaced at an opportune time for them. Richard Blumenthal of CT made a similar comment, saying that "someone who is honest is also candid about what he or she can not remember".

"I've never sexually assaulted anyone". "But if you want to introduce her, I'd be glad to have you do that, but I want you to know I didn't forget to do that because I would do that just as she was about to speak". She laughed nervously when Senator Grassley, the Republican chair of the committee, replied that no one made his coffee right. He decried the "media circus" around the allegations and said the nominee and Ms Ford had been through a bad couple of weeks since Ford leveled her accusation. "To watch someone have to recount something that traumatic, I feel very on edge for her", said Jacobson, 24, of Minneapolis.

Ford's comments about her knowledge of the GoFundMe pages came amid a line of questioning from Mitchell about who paid for her polygraph test. Ford's lawyers told Mitchell they paid for the polygraph test - "as is routine" - and clarified they were representing her pro bono.

Kavanaugh has adamantly denied assaulting her or anybody.

During his time fielding questions, Kavanaugh revealed himself to be a bitter, bullying, temper tantrum-pitching sack of entitlement-truly the ideal Supreme Court nominee to reflect the Trump doctrine. Kavanaugh then exposed his penis and shoved it in her face, Ramirez alleges.
