US Senate Judiciary Committee sets Kavanaugh vote for Friday

Lindsey Graham's depressing and disappointing admission about Thursday's Brett Kavanaugh hearing

Swetnick and Avenatti did not immediately respond to requests for comment. But, he said, the issue is a "moot point" because the committee has not invited her to speak.

"She said she was totally inebriated".

She wrote that she was incapacitated, perhaps drugged with Quaaludes, and was "unable to fight off the boys raping me". Surely she would have reported it to police if the encounter was "as bad as she says", the president said.

Trump said he was "ok with that", but again defended Kavanaugh as a "gem". The committee is set to vote on whether to move forward with this nomination on Friday morning. The controversy has unfolded ahead of the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats seek to take control from the Republicans.

Trump's remarks underscored the complexity of the moment, as Republicans seek to continue their efforts to install conservatives on the high court.

Brett Kavanaugh looks at his wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh at the start of a FOX News interview with Martha MacCallum, Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, in Washington, about allegations of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee.

Marco Silva: Arsenal's second goal was offside
He was about to take off Lacazette just before the French striker notched his superb second goal of the season in the 56th minute. Since his Premier League debut on February 3, only Liverpool's Mohamed Salah (16) has scored more goals than Aubameyang's 12.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer has called for Judge Kavanaugh to withdraw his candidacy in light of the allegations against him.

The committee also released a two-page prepared statement from Kavanaugh for Thursday's hearing in which he "categorically and unequivocably" denies Ford's allegation.

"Senator Grassley doesn't have a spine and neither do you b--", another said.

According to her declaration, Gildo-Mazzon has known Ford for more than 10 years and considers her "a good friend".

KAV on FOX: The New York Times said they could not corroborate this story and said that the person making the accusation had been calling around last week to other classmates, indicating her uncertainty about whether I had ever done such a thing.

Lawyer Michael Avenatti sent the allegations made by his client, Julie Swetnick, to the Senate Judiciary Committee conducting Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing and demanded an FBI investigation into the claims.

LEAGUE CUP: Moses set to face Liverpool
Klopp has also called on his other fringe players to grasp their chance to impress. In the moment, we only think only about tomorrow night.

All four documents say that Ford revealed the information well before President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh to the high court in July.

She said she saw Kavanaugh behave as a "mean drunk" at the parties and witnessed the "fondling and grabbing of girls without their consent". Another woman, Deborah Ramirez, has accused him of sexual misconduct when she and Kavanaugh were students at Yale University. He's denied those allegations. However, it seems to confirm at least one detail of Swetnick's statement - that he attended parties during "Beach Week" in Maryland.

"I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends".

"While I am frightened, please know, my fear will not hold me back from testifying and you will be provided answers to all of your questions", Ford wrote. Trump tweeted that Avenatti was a "third-rate lawyer" pushing "false accusations".

Russell Wheeler, an expert on the judicial selection process at the Brookings Institution, said he is unaware of a similar media interview by a Supreme Court nominee in the past 100 years. "Facts don't matter. I go through this with them every single day in D.C".
