Senate Committee Votes Friday on Kavanaugh Supreme Court Nomination


Moments before the panel convened, Arizona Sen.

Meanwhile, Sen. Bob Corker, who like Flake isn't running for re-election, said he'll be voting to confirm Kavanaugh.

Flake said Kavanaugh was entitled to the 'presumption of innocence. absent corroborating evidence'.

While I would gladly welcome the opportunity to work with President Trump on a new nominee for the critically important position, if Judge Kavanaugh's nomination comes before the full Senate for a vote under these circumstances, I will oppose it.

The media's coverage of the Kavanaugh nomination and the allegations against him.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is hoping the full Senate will quickly deliver a final, positive verdict on Mr Kavanaugh - possibly as soon as Tuesday.

Cornyn called Democrats' handling of the allegations as a "calculated effort to manipulate this process that is blatantly unfair".

Asked by Hirono if there was any "political motivation" for her to come forward, Ford said "no" there was not.

Judge Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegation, saying he doesn't question that Ms. Blasey Ford suffered an assault but insisting he had nothing to do with it.

A month ago, an ABA committee had said unanimously that Kavanaugh was "well qualified" for the Supreme Court, its highest possible designation.

In another statement, Patrick J. Smyth, identified by Ford as being among those downstairs at the party, says "I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh'". "The Senate must vote!"

At the time of the alleged incident, Ford was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17, she said, adding that Kavanaugh was drunk. Ford released sworn statements from people who said she had told them about the assault in later years.

Kavanaugh is a former top aide in Bush's administration.

Ford was only questioned by Democrats, while Republicans on the committee left the probing up to Mitchell.

Yesterday, we head compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh.

The White House is pushing back against a call from the American Bar Association to slow the vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh until the Federal Bureau of Investigation can do a full background check.

"Imagine a woman openly weeping like this on a national stage and still getting elected to the Supreme Court". The claim dates to the 1983-84 academic school year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman at Yale University.

As for Kavanaugh, Cunningham said the nominee "was successful in conveying the emotions of a man who has convinced himself that he has done nothing wrong".

Kavanaugh, a conservative-leaning judge whose entry into the lifetime appointment would help shift the Supreme Court to the right for years to come, came out fighting.

In her testimony, Ford recalled the "uproarious laughter" of Kavanaugh and Judge during the alleged attack.

The "trauma-related experience" was seared into her brain, she said.

Trump's son, Donald Jr., also tweeted his review: "I love Kavanaugh's tone". In particular, many pointed to the fact that Kavanaugh said she had a fear of flying due to her claustrophobia and anxiety, but admitted to Mitchell that she had travelled to Washington D.C. for the hearing by plane and had also been on a plane numerous times before to go on vacation. Even then, I knew the first line of the column I would write if that happened: 'It's now clear that Brett Kavanaugh's nomination can not go forward'.
