Red state Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly announces opposition to Kavanaugh

Red state Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly announces opposition to Kavanaugh”

Mary Ann Almeida, who said she was raped as a 14-year-old, thought Ford came across as untruthful. Kavanaugh denied the accusation.

"Republican senators have delayed this for weeks now", Mr Trump said. Nelson, who faces a tough re-election this fall in the swing state, announced Friday he was voting against Kavanaugh.

And Kavanaugh questioned Sen. She claimed Kavanaugh groped her and put his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams - allegations Kavanaugh vehemently denied.

"Indelible into the hippocampus is the laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense", Ford said. "This brings back so much pain", she said.

Ms Ford has said Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge was also in the room.

The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, the largest anti-sexual violence organization in the US, saw a 147 percent increase above normal call volume, according to a spokeswoman, who said final data was not yet available for release. His accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, also appeared before the committee during the emotionally charged day.

She said she feared the personal consequences would be akin to "jumping in front of a train".

Later, she told Senator Dick Durbin that her certainty was "100%".

Even Kavanaugh caught himself behaving questionably - and subsequently apologized for - during a tense moment with Sen.

Earlier in the day, Graham compared the judge's treatment to Ford's experience, the woman who came forward to accuse him of sexual assault.

While Mitchell probed Ford's account looking for gaps, her questioning seemed disjointed.

On Friday, the committee voted along party lines to defeat a Democratic motion to attempt to subpoena Judge to testify before the panel.

A Senate committee is currently discussing his nomination but the judge has now secured the confidence of Republican Jeff Flake, who had wavered in his support for the judge.

So although Grassley and Kavanaugh are correct that the Federal Bureau of Investigation might only serve as a gold-plated transcription service in this case, the completeness of those transcripts might exceed the body of evidence that now exists - and it would be evidence obtained from witnesses who could be prosecuted if they lied to the feds. He mocked Ford's allegations - and several others since - that have accused him of sexual impropriety. Instead the nomination that Republicans were rushing for a vote now hangs precariously after one of the most emotionally charged hearings Capitol Hill has ever seen.

Even Mr Trump, who fiercely defends his nominee, said he would be watching and was "open to changing my mind".

The Senate judiciary committee, where the initial vote on Kavanaugh will be held, is narrowly split with an 11-10 Republican majority.

Republicans had hoped to shift the Supreme Court further to the right and lock in for decades a more conservative approach to issues such as abortion, regulation and the environment. "They are giving the women a major chance to speak".

Ford was seated at a table in the packed hearing room flanked by her lawyers, facing a bank of senators.
