Jewish woman accuses Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in high school

Kavanaugh will deny allegations of sexual misconduct in prepared statement before Senate

Kavanaugh made the statements while testifying Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee following allegations by Ford that he sexually assaulted her in high school.

With high drama in the making, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh emphatically fended off new accusations of sexual misconduct ahead of a charged public Senate hearing that could determine whether Republicans can salvage his nomination and enshrine a high court conservative majority. Thomas denied Hill's accusation.

While the nominee personifies the prestige of an institution in which they have invested their own career aspirations and identity, many Yale law students said they opposed him. Swetnick said in a sworn statement that she witnessed Kavanaugh "consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s". His testimony will follow Ford's, which, depending on how persuasive she is, could weaken his ability to defend himself.

Mitchell's attempt to draw out a counter-narrative - mainly that Ford was co-ordinating with Democrats - was disrupted by the panel's decision to allow alternating five-minute rounds of questions from Democratic senators. On Wednesday, only hours after the media jumped on the story, the man reportedly responsible for the allegations recanted his accusations, tweeting, "Do everyone who is going insane about what I had said I have recanted because I have made a mistake and apologize for such mistake".

He lashed out at the committee over the time it has taken to convene the hearing after Christine Blasey Ford's allegation first emerged.

She told the committee that Kavanaugh barricaded her in a bedroom at a house party during high school and got on top of her and assaulted her.

As deferential and hushed as Ford's delivery was, Kavanaugh's was incensed and combative. Women voters have already been abandoning the Republican Party amid a series of controversies during Trump's presidency, polls show.

"I want to watch, I want to see", he said at a news conference Wednesday in NY. "And outraged." Kavanaugh said.

Thank you for signing up for the 3 Things to Know Newsletter. I am innocent of this charge.

Ford answered in response to Sen. Trump's fellow Republicans control the chamber by a narrow 51-49 margin.

Kavanaugh spoke after Blasey Ford.

But he moved beyond simple denials to going on offense, accusing Democrats of targeting him to assuage political grudges. Unlike many GOP governors and candidates, they have been critical of President Donald Trump on several issues. In the front row, family and friends quietly cried including his wife, Ashley, whose lips were trembling. She was accompanied by "at least" 15 friends, according to reporters in the room, including friends who traveled to DC from California for moral support.

Not likely to improve Trump's mood is another bit of potential unpleasantness on his schedule Thursday: A meeting to decide the fate of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling. The official said aides understood that Trump was reacting positively to the performance.

Ford concluded by saying it was "not my responsibility to determine whether Mr Kavanaugh deserves to sit on the Supreme Court".

"You need more than an accusation for evidence". Judge in a statement said he has "no memory" of the alleged incident. "She's articulate, an attractive person".

"Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter", said Ford, who is a research psychologist, "the uproarious laughter between the two". Dianne Feinstein outlining her sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh. There are four women who serve on the committee on the Democratic side. Democrats have continued to call for a delay in Kavanaugh's confirmation vote and have pushed for an FBI investigation into the allegations.
