Senate Judiciary Committee Schedules Brett Kavanaugh Vote For Friday

What Message Is The Kavanaugh Nomination Fight Sending Young People?

What Message Is The Kavanaugh Nomination Fight Sending Young People?

Trump said Monday the accusations were among "the single most unfair, unjust thing to happen to a candidate for anything". "And she was totally inebriated and all messed up, and she doesn't know", Trump said.

"The second accuser has nothing", Trump told reporters. I mean, I think, look; if you're in his shoes - and I know him very well. "She admits time lapses". Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations.

The Supreme Court begins its new term on October 1. That could set up a vote in the full Senate early next week. Mitch McConnell, R-KY, the majority leader, said on Monday.

"I'm confident we're going to win", McConnell told reporters on Tuesday.

"We hope he is going to be confirmed".

"I will be glued to the television", said Sen.

In a letter to the Republican and Democratic heads of the Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh said he would not bow out and would clear his name in the Thursday hearing.

Ford says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during a Maryland house party when they were in high school.

Ashley Kavanaugh said during the interview that the allegations have been hard on her and the couple's two daughters. Patty Murry, a Democrat from Washington, said at a press conference.

China denies meddling in U.S. elections, demands ‘respect’
While the USA has yet to move forward with the additional $267 billion in tariffs does not mean it won't, stay tuned. In response, both the U.S. and China threatened to further increase tariffs on each other's key exports.

One of the biggest points of contention remained the outside counsel.

Republicans are bullish on their chances of confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, signaling the vote will come soon after the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday to feature testimony from both the nominee and the woman accusing him of sexual assault when they were both teenagers, Christine Blasey Ford. "His confirmation would compromise the integrity of the court for generations to come".

In a break from convention, Mitchell will question Ford and Kavanaugh on behalf of the committee's Republican senators, 11 men.

The move drew sharp criticism from Democrats, who questioned whether the process would be transparent. I will listen closely to what Professor Ford has to say, and I will ask questions where I deem it appropriate. GOP senators promised fairness to Ford, who Sen.

A newly released statement by Kavanaugh's former roommate, James Roche, described him as a "notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time".

"It's up to them", Sen. "It's certainly their right to do that, and we'll see how it goes".

Democrats blasted the decision to schedule a Friday vote even though the Judiciary Committee had not yet heard from Ford. "Neither Dr. Blasey Ford nor Judge Kavanaugh is on trial".

"Does that sound like someone who's treating these allegations with respect and fairness and evenhandedness?" Certainly not to me. Regarding alcohol, he said he never drank so much that he could not remember what happened the night before. Kavanaugh has denied being at the party.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from SC, said Ford should have her say, but that his mind is already made up.

Guardiola: Aguero is important for the whole club, not just the team
Sergio Aguero has signed a one-year contract extension at Manchester City , tying him to the Premier League club until 2021. I'm not going to discuss a game that happened eight months ago.

The New Yorker reported Sunday that in Ramirez's initial conversations with the publication, "she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh's role in the alleged incident with certainty".

Ms Ramirez accused the judge of exposing himself to her at a dormitory party at Yale University in the 1983-84 academic year.

Once the committee votes on the nomination, it goes to the majority leader - Sen. "And so in order for us to take them under consideration, she needs to take the next steps". But he said they were not friends and did not have similar friend groups.

But they had assumed, as I did, that a second allegation would be stronger, not weaker, than the first. Charles Grassley, the top Republican on the committee, emphasized that the scheduling was procedural and only for a "potential" vote "if we're ready".

Trump said Ford's allegation was 36 years old "and nobody ever heard about it".

At their regular Tuesday party lunch, Republicans were told to be prepared to be in Washington this weekend to process Kavanaugh's nomination, senators said.

Dozens of people protesting Kavanaugh were arrested outside Collins' Capitol Hill office.

A second woman accused Kavanaugh of misconduct during his time at Yale University.
