Lawyers For Brett Kavanaugh's Alleged Victims Were Uncooperative, Claims Grassley

The National Sexual Assault Hotline has seen a 57 percent increase in calls since Christine Blasey Ford accused Brett Kavanaugh of assaulting her

The National Sexual Assault Hotline has seen a 57 percent increase in calls since Christine Blasey Ford accused Brett Kavanaugh of assaulting her

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh says he didn't watch Christine Blasey (BLAH'-zee) Ford testify about her accusation that he sexually assaulted her when they were teens. "The details that bring me her are ones I will never forget".

In this regard, the committee has also questioned Kavanaugh about a series of anonymous allegations, including a physical assault on a woman in the 1990s. "I think it's going to be a very important day in the history of our country".

Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., asked Ford for her strongest memory.

Blasey Ford will tell the committee a "visibly drunk" Kavanaugh and a friend locked her in a bedroom at a party in a Washington suburb in 1982, when she was 15 and he was 17, according to testimony released ahead of the hearing.

Kavanaugh has also been accused of exposing himself to a classmate, Deborah Ramirez, during an alcohol-fueled Yale University party a few years later. Kavanaugh also denied new accusations released in Senate Judiciary Committee transcripts Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, Republicans have a greater number of senators and time on their side. "I've had many false charges". "People want fame, they want money, they want whatever".

Senate Republicans are huddling to discuss the next steps on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. Blasey Ford's hearing, or to schedule hearings for Justice Kavanaugh's other accusers.

Those documents could have weight because people who Ford has said were at the party she's described have not corroborated her account.

The judge portrayed the allegation against him as motivated by politics and claimed that it could be connected to his role in special counsel Kenneth Starr's investigation of former President Bill Clinton.

Some guy, who clearly doesn't care about the well being of his bank account, wanted to make a quick $450 on this Sunday. Buffalo also turned a whole bunch of people into losers on Sunday.

"It's ridiculous. Total Twilight Zone".

"I will be a governor who stands up for women, speaks out against sexual abuse and believes survivors who have the courage to share their stories", he said.

A conservative appeals court judge, Kavanaugh was nominated by President Donald Trump in July and appeared to be heading toward confirmation by the Republican-controlled Senate until Ford's allegations became public earlier this month. It feels like a grave understatement to say her testimony is triggering painful flashbacks for survivors nationwide. "This is what terrified me the most and had the most lasting impact on my life".

She did not specifically claim Kavanaugh took part or that he was aware of her rape, but said that he and other boys in his circle engaged in similar behavior.

Kavanaugh's confirmation seemed assured until a California college professor, Christine Blasey Ford, accused the appeals court judge of attempting to rape her when they were high school teenagers.

Kavanaugh responded: "I plan to, but I did not".

"I witnessed Brett Kavanaugh consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s", Swetnick says in her statement, which she signed under penalty of perjury.

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, the Judiciary Committee's chairman, said the hearing will go forward as planned and that the panel's staff is looking into Swetnick's allegations.
