Kavanaugh and accuser Ford face historic Senate hearing

Third accuser deepens Sen. Collins' quandary over Kavanaugh on eve of critical hearing

Kavanaugh said he did not know the accuser, Julie Swetnick of Washington, who wrote she had "a firm recollection" of seeing boys lined up at parties waiting "for their "turn" with a girl inside the room".

In testimony released in advance of the hearing, 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.

'I will remain anonymous, but I feel obligated to inform you of this 1998 incident involving Brett Kavanaugh. "I never saw them do anything wrong", he said of his friends Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly.

Kavanaugh, whose nomination was in serious jeopardy after bombshell new accusations by another woman emerged yesterday charging that the judge engaged in sexually abusive behavior when he was a teenager, has vehemently denied the allegations.

"I want to apologize to both of you for the treatment you've received", he said. That Republicans "could have pushed it through two weeks ago, and we wouldn't be talking about this right now, which is what I would have preferred".

Republicans have derided Ms Ford's allegation as part of a smear campaign and a Democratic plot to sink Mr Kavanaugh's nomination.

Systrom did not say why he and Krieger are leaving Facebook, which is facing one of the most turbulent times in its history. Instagram attracts a younger cohort of users who are critical to Facebook's growth.

Christine Blasey Ford testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

The woman who filed the complaint told of an evening in 1998 where her daughter and several friends were out at a bar socializing with Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has denied all other allegations.

Ford said it took her years to say anything about the alleged assault to anyone. "It will be interesting to hear what she has to say".

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh answered questions about another potential accuser during a call with Senate staff on Tuesday.

"I've been accused...by four or five women, who got paid a lot of money to make up stories about me who made a lot of money", Trump said.

Brett Kavanaugh’s Fox News Interview Spoke Only to His Supporters
Trump reserved most of his ire for the Democrats, whom he accused of playing a "very risky game" and hurting Kavanaugh's family. Mr Kavanaugh said Dr Ford's friend does not remember being at a party with him, nor has anyone corroborated the accuser's story.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, Mitchell's boss, praises her experience an "objective prosecutor" with a "caring heart" for victims. "And, if he's going to have that seat legitimately, all of these things should be investigated", Swetnick told MSNBC.

A woman who came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh says he doesn't belong on the nation's highest court.

The Senate is narrowly divided and Kavanaugh will need to convince a handful of Republican lawmakers, including Sens.

But the current appeals court judge declared in a statement: "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Avenatti also tweeted a picture of Swetnick, calling her "courageous, fearless and honest" and asked that "her privacy and that of her family be respected".

Members of the Senate, controlled 51-49 by Trump's fellow Republicans, must now decide whether to vote to confirm him after the almost nine-hour hearing.

Porsche to stop making diesel cars
Regardless of the reasoning, Porsche's decision to end diesel cars may prompt other companies to do the same. The German manufacturer says it'll concentrate on petrol, electric and hybrid engines.

Murkowski said an FBI investigation into the nominee's past "would sure clear up all the questions". Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation.
