Four GOP Governors Want Senate to Delay Kavanaugh Vote

What Thursday's hearing with Kavanaugh and Ford will look like

What Thursday's hearing with Kavanaugh and Ford will look like

The mood was intense as Kavanaugh's voice filled the room for the extraordinary session, unlike Ford's quiet testimony.

Kavanaugh: "I'm telling the truth".

It was not clear, however, if the drama changed the views of any senators.

Once Flake's vote became public, he was cornered for several by enraged protesters in the Senate elevator in an extraordinary scene captured on live television.

Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee that she initially sent the letter to Eshoo on July 6, a few days before Kavanaugh's nomination. GOP leaders had pushed for a full Senate vote on Tuesday, October 2. Democrats' search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. "The Senate must vote!"

But with televisions across the nation tuned in to the hearing - senators among those riveted to their screens - it was unclear how politicians who will ultimately decide Mr Kavanaugh's fate will assess Ms Ford's credibility.

Ford said she remembered the boys laughing - a noise, she said on Thursday, that has been seared into her memory for 36 years.

She told the committee she feared Kavanaugh would rape and accidentally kill her during the alleged assault: "Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes".

After the hearing, and Trump's tweet, Democratic committee member Sen.

Republicans have accused Ford and the other women of making unproven allegations and have questioned why they'd not publicly revealed them for decades. Some Democrats have called on Kavanaugh to withdraw in light of the allegations and have said an FBI investigation is needed before any Senate confirmation vote. She also accuses Kavanaugh of being a "mean drunk" who made jokes "designed to demean, humiliate and embarrass" girls.

One was Anna Eshoo, Ford's local congresswoman and a Democrat. Cory Booker, "nothing short of heroic".

Durbin: "I want to know what you want to do, judge". "And I believe many Americans across the country believe you", Democratic Sen. 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. The hearing marked the first time Ford had spoken publicly about her accusation, which could derail the confirmation, redefine the "Me Too" era and affect the fight for control of Congress in the November 6 election. She told the senators she was "terrified" to testify but felt it was her civic duty to come forward. He had a hard time because he was very inebriated and because I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit under my clothing. What city are they going to go to?

Throughout their riveting, nationally televised testimony on Thursday, Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh served as Exhibits A and B for a tutorial on gender roles and stereotypes.

But with an eager-to-please demeanour and zero show of anger during the questioning, Ford stuck by her account. But on Thursday, he was firmly on the side of Democratic lawmakers who want the Federal Bureau of Investigation to probe the allegations against Kavanaugh.

"I truly wish I could be more helpful with more detailed answers to all of the questions that have and will be asked about how I got to the party and where it took place and so forth".

Still, the harshly political tone adopted by Kavanaugh and Republican senators amounted to a new territory for a judicial nominee.
