Angry Kavanaugh Blasts Senate for Making Confirmation ‘Disgrace’

"I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school", Dr Ford said, reading from her prepared testimony, her voice breaking with emotion.

Sheryl Gay Stolberg, congressional correspondent for the New York Times.

"When Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh and his original accuser Christine Blasey Ford deliver dueling testimony on Thursday, they will conjure drama of an intensity unusual even in the Trump administration".

At that point, Grassley interjected to say, "I was going to introduce her".

"'I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process". Kavanaugh has denied the allegation.

Shortly after Ford made the claims, she stated that "there is zero chance that I would confuse [Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge]".

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley interrupted Sen. She also did not specifically accuse Kavanaugh or Judge of raping her, or physically assaulting her in any way, in her declaration.

Graham continued his condemnation of the Democrats, telling Kavanaugh that he could "not imagine" what he and his family have been through since Blasey came forward with her accusation. "To watch someone have to recount something that traumatic, I feel very on edge for her", said Jacobson, 24, of Minneapolis. In particular, many pointed to the fact that Kavanaugh said she had a fear of flying due to her claustrophobia and anxiety, but admitted to Mitchell that she had travelled to Washington D.C. for the hearing by plane and had also been on a plane numerous times before to go on vacation.

Swetnick said she was a victim of one of the gang rapes, but she did not allege that Kavanaugh or Judge attacked her.

Kavanaugh had already been accused by Christine Blasey Ford of sexually assaulting her at a high school house party in the early 1980s when he was 17 and she was 15.

In Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, two Democratic senators with 2020 ambitions - New Jersey's Cory Booker and California's Kamala Harris - took center stage, asking the most aggressive questions and galvanizing both progressive opposition and conservative support.

Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party more than three decades ago, took the polygraph test on August 7 in a conference room at a hotel near Baltimore/Washington International airport. This hearing offered viewers an opportunity to see that character in action. Democrats are likely to grill Kavanaugh on all of their allegations and the corroborations from some of their friends and classmates, as well as his drinking habits in high school and college.

Though Ford is the only accuser testifying, three women have made allegations against Kavanaugh. Amy Klobuchar, a former county attorney - could lean on their prosecutorial experience to press for answers.
