After a historic Senate hearing, what comes next for Brett Kavanaugh?

Why One Woman Who Signed Letter in Support of Kavanaugh Is Now Regretful

Why One Woman Who Signed Letter in Support of Kavanaugh Is Now Regretful

He was referring to Christine Blasey Ford, who told the Senate Judiciary Committee during a hearing Thursday that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers in the 1980s. "My responsibility is to tell the truth". She is now one of three women to have publicly accused the Judge of sexual assault or misconduct. "Not in high school, not in college, not ever".

On July 9 after Kavanaugh had become the Supreme Court nominee, Ford said she received a call from Eshoo's office. "Ford by listening to her and hearing her story", she wrote on Twitter.

Baker, who faces re-election this November, is one of only a few Republican governors, all political moderates, to express dissatisfaction with the committee's handling of the allegations made against Kavanaugh.

A defiant Kavanaugh spoke to Fox News' Martha MacCallum for her show, "The Story" on Monday and said, "I'm not going anywhere". All but one senator - Sen.

"I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation against me by Dr Ford". During that time there were contentious negotiations with the Judiciary Committee's Republican leadership over how the hearing, which at times looked like it might not happen, would be handled.

Salah received the Puskas award for the best goal , for his effort against Everton in the Premier League at Anfield last December. The best goalkeeper award will be fought for between Thibaut Courtois , Kasper Schmeichel and Hugo Lloris.

During the free-wheeling news conference, Trump continued to lash out at Democrats and label the allegations against Kavanaugh politically motivated. From there, each GOP senator handled his own questions, while Mitchell sat silently nearby.

Christine Blasey Ford testified earlier Thursday that Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her at a high school gathering in 1982. "Legal funding isn't a worthwhile line of questioning".

Ford said she was "willing" but also hoping that the committee or a representative "would come to me, but then I realized that was an unrealistic request".

"You are not on trial", Harris told Ford later. "How are you so sure?" He flipped open the binder that held his notes - nearly every page had passages underlined, with annotations in the margins in thick black pen - and declared that no one had seen a draft of his opening statement except one of his former law clerks.

Grassley also equated the pain that Dr. Ford is experiencing with Brett Kavanaugh's. "This is 100 percent Brett Kavanaugh".

FIFA Fair play award: Presented by Pierluigi Collina and Paolo Maldini, the award was won by Lennart Thy. Messi could only finish fifth with 9.81% behind Kylian Mbappe (10.52%).

Kavanaugh ditched his prepared remarks and instead issued a blistering statement declaring the confirmation process "a national disgrace". Trump said in a tweet. "Fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record".

"In the absence of a complete and thorough investigation, and hearing from all parties involved, moving this nomination forward would be a mistake", Kasich, who has not ruled out a 2020 run, said in a statement. The consequences will be with us for decades.

During a break in the hearing, some of Kavanaugh's strongest supporters gave no indications of wavering. All the other Democratic senators were equally stone-faced.

Kavanaugh's teetering grasp on winning confirmation was evident when Sen.

As a Supreme Court nominee, Kavanaugh personifies the prestige of Yale, an institution in which numerous law students have invested their own career aspirations and identity.
