Kavanaugh Nomination Voted Out Of Committee Amid Flake Proposal

Who Is Ashley Kavanaugh? Wife of Supreme Court Pick Standing by Her Man Amid Tumultuous Hearings

Who Is Ashley Kavanaugh? Wife of Supreme Court Pick Standing by Her Man Amid Tumultuous Hearings

Within moments of the eight-hour proceedings concluding, Trump tweeted his approval of Kavanaugh's performance and called on the Senate to move swiftly to a vote.

Trump postponed a Thursday meeting on his possibly to-be-fired Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, instead planning "to meet next week", a White House spokeswoman said. Kavanaugh replied, "For 12 years, everyone who has appeared before me on the D.C. Circuit has praised my judicial temperament".

Ford claimed she was able to escape to a bathroom and then outside of the house when Judge jumped into the fray and sent everyone in the room "tumbling".

Kavanaugh said he did not watch Blasey Ford's testimony but he categorically denied her allegations. He vowed to continue fighting for his confirmation, telling Democrats who oppose him "you'll never get me to quit".

"I believe you", Senator Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat from CT, told her. Blumenthal also hit out at Trump for failing to authorize an FBI investigation into Blasey Ford's allegations, a move he said "amounts to a cover-up".

In an August note Ford wrote in advance of a polygraph exam she took at the direction of her lawyers, she maintained that "there were 4 boys and a couple of girls" at the party, again contradicting her letter to Feinstein in July. Acknowledging that their support for Kavanaugh was based in part on his standing as a "committed textualist" who might help rewrite the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision, the editors said his nomination is now woven into the discussion of how to treat women who report harassment and abuse. "This onslaught of last-minute allegations does not ring true", Kavanaugh said.

Many female protesters wore teal, which has been designated as the color for sexual assault awareness and prevention.

As the committee takes up the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court on Friday, Flake is the only undecided vote.

Dr Ford was lauded for her testimony and her bravery by various Democrats and by a large number of supporters around the world. I am called "evil" by a Democratic member of this committee...

Hazard's magic completes Chelsea comeback to knock Liverpool out
Emerson Palmieri nudged home the equaliser before a phenomenal solo goal from Hazard booked Chelsea's passage into the last 16. They are a brilliant team. " This is good preparation for Saturday but we have to defend better ", said Klopp .

The White House confirmed that Trump watched the testimony aboard Air Force One as he returned to Washington from NY.

Tester also said he has "deep concerns about the allegations of sexual assault against Judge Kavanaugh". They convened late into the evening in a room in the Capitol with various senators, including Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, raising pointed questions, according to those familiar with the private meeting but granted anonymity to discuss it.

Republicans are reluctant for several reasons, including the likelihood that further investigations could push a vote past the November elections that may switch Senate control back to the Democrats and make consideration of any Trump nominee more hard.

"This confirmation process has become a national disgrace", he said.

Among the television viewers on Thursday was Mr Trump, who has mocked the credibility of Mr Kavanaugh's accusers.

Earlier this month, Ford came forward and accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, according to The Washington Post. "I like beer", he said, but he also said he'd never passed out and never attacked Ford. Kavanaugh said that the allegations-all three of them-were false and have irreparably damaged his reputation and damaged his family life. When he chaired the committee during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, Biden famously said that Federal Bureau of Investigation reports are inconclusive and should not be relied on during sexual misconduct allegations.

Republican leaders said - and Trump ordered - that the new probe be "limited in scope".

"Look at me and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me", said 23-year-old Maria Gallagher, a volunteer with a liberal advocacy group. They added that Trump expressed some frustration at the process - and the staff work - that led Kavanaugh to this point. Kavanaugh needed to come out swinging.

"Late Thursday, the magazine of the Jesuit religious order in the United States withdrew its endorsement of Kavanaugh, saying the nomination was no longer in the interests of the country and "should be withdrawn".
