Kavanaugh accuser says he doesn't belong on Supreme Court

April FrancisSep 30, 2018

On Thursday, both Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh will testify on Ford's allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school.

Kavanaugh, Ford said, put his hand over her mouth to silence her after she yelled, prompting her to fear for her life.

He also reiterated his position that all four accusations are a result of a smear campaign concocted by the Democrats to hinder his confirmation to the Supreme Court.

A man who accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of participating in a sexual assault on a boat in Newport Harbor in August 1985 has recanted his story, saying on Twitter he "made a mistake".

One of Judge Kavanaugh's accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, is due to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Republicans have tapped Rachel Mitchell, chief of the Special Victims Division in the Maricopa County Attorney's Office in Phoenix, to question Ford on their behalf. Ford will then follow with her own opening statement, which won't have a time limit either. Each will have five minutes to question her.

And even if we did, we'd have no way to investigate the allegation as it was made anonymously and can not be corroborated. Cory Gardner details a 1998 incident in which the writer said Kavanaugh physically assaulted a woman while intoxicated in Washington, DC, NBC News reported Wednesday evening.

"To my colleagues, I say that winning at all costs is too high a cost".

The president defended his nominee against multiple sexual abuse allegations, calling Kavanaugh "one of the highest quality people" he's ever met. I've been in the public eye for 24 years, really public at various points.

I truly wish I could provide detailed answers to all of the questions that have been and will be asked about how I got to the party, where it took place, and so forth. "But the details about that night that bring me here today are ones I will never forget". "I know it's hard".

Jerry Hanafin, who conducted the polygraph test, told CBS News' Ed O'Keefe that it was unlikely that in her response, Ford believed something that was not true, and passed the test because she believed it was true.

Kavanaugh had none of it, interrupting Feinstein mid-questioning to call Swetnick's allegations "a joke" and "a farce". Sometimes I had too many.

"Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes", her statement said.
