On Eve Of Kavanaugh-Ford Hearing, Anita Hill Remembers Her Own Testimony

Investigators on the Senate Judiciary Committee are looking into "at least one additional allegation" of misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, NBC News reported Wednesday.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.

Blasey Ford's accusations have thrust her into an intense national spotlight, as Trump seeks to push through his nominee on party lines and Democrats demand a suspension of the proceedings to allow the FBI to conduct a thorough investigation. "I know all too painfully that being a person of faith does not stop men from being sexual predators". "They have been seared into my memory and have haunted me episodically as an adult", she says in her eight-page opening testimony obtained yesterday by United States media.

In testimony released beforehand, she said she was appearing only because she felt it was her duty, was frankly "terrified" and has been the target of vile harassment and even death threats.

Dianne Feinstein asked if there is any chance she has mistakenly identified Kavanaugh, Ford said "absolutely not".

He added: "It's possible that I'll hear that and I'll say I'm changing my mind". "And here's the thing that seals it for me".

"I think it's going to be a very, very important day in the history of our country", Trump said Wednesday at a press conference in NY.

The August 7 examination, held in a Maryland Hilton Hotel, consisted of a one-page, handwritten statement by Ford, an interview and two questions: Is any part of your statement false?

"This has everything to do with our country", Trump said.

OPEC and non-OPEC including Russia , Oman and Kazakhstan, met at the weekend to discuss a possible increase in crude output. Most of the potential supply shortfall has already been priced into the contract, Again Capital's Kilduff said.

Trump defended Kavanaugh, now a federal appeals court judge, at a NY news conference, but the president's comments injected another note of uncertainty into Kavanaugh's already troubled bid for a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court.

"It's happened to me many times", he said, claiming he had been accused - falsely - by "four or five women".

Senate Republicans are bringing in Mitchell, also a Republican, to question both Kavanaugh and his first accuser at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday.

Ford has alleged that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her, tried to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth when both attended a house party in 1982. Judge has previously said he has no recollection of the incident described by Ford. "These interviews happened this week, according to the committee".

"This is ridiculous and from the twilight zone", Kavanaugh said in a statement.

Embattled SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh is facing two new sexual assault accusations, including raping a woman on a boat in 1985 and aggressively shoving a woman against the wall of a bar in a sexual way in 1998.

Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations, which Trump and some other Republicans described as last-minute smear campaigns.

"They weren't laughing at me, they were laughing with me", Trump said on Wednesday during his press conference in NY.
