Friday morning committee vote could set up quick Kavanaugh confirmation

Ford said that was the case with her alleged attack. Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting", Trump tweeted. The Senate must vote!

They come against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement and the hearing included sharp exchanges between Republicans and Democrats mirroring the atmosphere of bitter political partisanship in Washington.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) absolutely erupted during a press scrum following Christine Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday. If approved, it would go to the full Senate, where Republicans hold a slim 51-49 edge. "I denied the allegation immediately, unequivocally, and categorically", Kavanaugh says.

"I've never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not in college, not ever", he said. "I'm innocent." When Amy Klobuchar asked if he had ever blacked out while drinking, he grinned, taunting her.

Ford said she finally opened up about Kavanaugh's role to a "couple of close friends on the beach in California" in conversations 'over the next two days'.

Trump had canceled today's planned meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein so as to free up his time to watch the hearing at which one of Kavanaugh's accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, testified. "I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me".

Ford broke her silence after 36 years, telling senators she originally wished to remain anonymous but once her story became public, she believed it was her "civic duty" to come forward. "I tried to yell for help".

Adultery is now legal in India
Section 497 denuded the woman from making choices. "A woman can not be asked to think as a man or as how the society desires". Adultery might not be the cause of an unhappy marriage, it could be result of an unhappy marriage, Justice Misra said.

A GoFundMe page to support Ford and pay for her security and legal expenses quickly doubled its fundraising total after it was mentioned during the hearing. "This is a circus".

His 45-minute statement was not only a defense of his character and an emphatic denial of the allegations he's faced, but an enraged, nearly uncontrolled indictment of the contentious confirmation process that he had undergone since July.

In both instances, a respected and successful female professor reluctantly came forward with "11th-hour" allegations of past sexual misconduct against a Republican nominee to the high court.

But with televisions across the nation tuned in to the hearing - senators among those riveted to their screens - it was unclear how politicians who will ultimately decide Mr Kavanaugh's fate will assess Ms Ford's credibility.

Asked how she could be so sure it was Kavanaugh who attacked her, Blasey Ford responded with confidence: "The same way that I'm sure that I'm talking to you right now".

"I believed he was going to rape me", Ford told Senators on Thursday. Thomas denied the charges, called the hearing a "circus", and was confirmed 52 to 48 with 11 Democrats voting in favor -almost exclusively from what would now be called "Trump country".

He finished his speech by declaring, "To my Republican colleagues, if you vote no, you are legitimizing the most despicable thing I've seen in my time in politics". "You're interviewing me, you're interviewing me". "To do it better, what we have to have is a fair process", Hill told NPR. Ford says the assault took place at a house party in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C. "Two friends having a really good time with one another".
