Four GOP Governors Want Senate to Delay Kavanaugh Vote

Four GOP Governors Want Senate to Delay Kavanaugh Vote

The Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday said Christine Blasey Ford's emotional testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on her allegation of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court nominee, amounted to a disaster for Republicans.

Other progressive groups have also called for Kavanaugh to be removed from the appeals court he serves on, which is among the most powerful in the country behind the Supreme Court. In a sworn statement prepared by Avenatti and submitted to committee, Swetnick said that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present at a party where she was drugged and "gang raped". "Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes". He choked back tears while saying that his 10-year-old daughter, in saying her evening prayers recently, told Kavanaugh's wife Ashley, "we should pray for the woman". He called the allegations against him a "calculated and orchestrated political hit". Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) suggesting that Ford's testimony could have a tangible effect on sexual assault survivors across the nation.

"Mr. Chairman, Ranking Member Feinstein, and Members of the Committee: Eleven days ago, Dr. Ford publicly accused me of committing a serious wrong more than 36 years ago when we were both in high school". Many were wearing shirts that read "I believe women", and some were holding up their hands. "It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me". And the consequences extend beyond any one nomination.

Trump said that if lawmakers had moved faster, "you wouldn't be talking about it right now, which is frankly what I would have preferred".

When asked if Ramirez would testify without an investigation, Clune said, "It wouldn't surprise me if she would agree to do that".

When asked by Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein if this could be a case of mistaken identity, Ford replied: "Absolutely not".

U.S. lambasts Iran as world leaders gather at the UN
Security Council supported the JCPOA , either directly or indirectly, and referred to the American action as an incorrect action". Soon afterward, French President Emmanuel Macron seemed to rebuke Trump's comments during his own speech at the United Nations .

US pressure could work only if Iran deal survives
Media reports say the European Union will set up new ways of payment to preserve oil and other trade ties with Iran. Mr Trump reimposed the sanctions after quitting the Iran accord in May, and called on U.S. allies to comply.

North Korea Nuclear Deal Could Take ‘Years,’ Trump Suggests
Security Council that many positive things were happening behind the scenes on North Korea, "away from the media". Trump said that the United States would have been drawn into a war with North Korea if he had not been elected.

The second allegation, raised by Whitehouse, alleges that in 1985 "a close acquaintance of the constituent was sexually assaulted by two heavily inebriated men she referred to at the time as Brett and Mark".

"But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out and I did not sexually assault anyone", he said. He has denied all of the accusations, but it remained unclear how the dramatic testimony by Ford and Kavanaugh would affect his prospects.

"Republican senators have delayed this for weeks now", Trump said.

Ms Feinstein criticised Republicans who have rejected Democratic demands to slow Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation process and let the FBI investigate all the allegations, saying: "What I don't understand is the rush to judgment".

The support for Kavanaugh though, seemed outnumbered by the the people at the Senate who turned out for Ford.

Susan Collins. A moderate who sometimes breaks from party ranks, Collins earlier said she wanted both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify under oath to the committee and told reporters that if Kavanaugh had lied about allegations of sexual misconduct, "that would be disqualifying".
