New allegations against US Supreme Court nominee

New allegations against US Supreme Court nominee”

But I was not ideal in those days, just as I am not flawless today.

According to Ms Ford, Mr Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party in the 1980s when she was 15 and he was 17.

Ford said Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were "drunkenly laughing during the attack".

The almost 50 reporters squeezed into tables on the room's outer edges where they could furiously type her words into their laptops had also been reduced in numbers to fit into a space smaller than the one usually used for such blockbuster hearings.

Susan Collins of ME, a pivotal moderate who has not announced her position, said she was taking Ms Swetnick's claims seriously. That was an apparent reference to Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge. Senate staffers asked Kavanaugh about the incident over the phone, according to a redacted transcript of the call that was released by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. "It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me", Ford alleged. I tried to yell for help.

"I was pushed onto the bed and Brett (Kavanaugh) got on top of me".

"This was what terrified me the most, and has had the most lasting impact on my life", Ford detailed.

China says won't weaken currency to boost exports, as USA tariffs mount
It shouldn't be to shrink trade with China, much less cripple its economy. And we will come back with more if they retaliate. But many analysts were skeptical .

Two other women have since come forward with additional accusations.

The hearing opened with partisan barbs before either Ford or Kavanaugh testified.

In this regard, the committee has also questioned Kavanaugh about a series of anonymous allegations, including a physical assault on a woman in the 1990s.

She added that since The Washington Post published its story she has experienced "an outpouring of support from people in every state of this country".

Grassley also pointed out that numerous witnesses Ford has identified deny that the party in question took place.

Both will face five minutes of questioning from each Committee member, or, as CNN reports, a lawyer if senators so choose - which is what the 11 Republican members have planned.

Tasha Menaker of the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual Violence said Wednesday that she has worked with Rachel Mitchell for three years to develop sexual assault reporting guidelines for medical and legal specialists in Arizona's most populous county.

ABC boss Michelle Guthrie ousted from role as managing director
Faine, who has been with the ABC since 1989, also said he had confronted Ms Guthrie about why she was not the staff's "champion". Guthrie, a lawyer who ran Star TV in Hong Kong and then worked at Google , came to the ABC in May 2016 to replace Mark Scott.

"This is not a trial for Dr. Ford".

Kavanaugh's confirmation would cement conservative control of the high court as Trump moves to shift it and the broader federal judiciary to the right.

Kavanaugh, who has categorically denied the allegations, was scheduled to testify after Ford.

"It was important to me to describe the details of the assault in my own words", Ford recalled.

Ford politely answered them - at times apologizing for conflicts like saying she hadn't again spoken to other people were at the party where she says Kavanaugh assaulted her, and then following up that she did speak again to a woman who was there.

Trump dismissed the allegations against Kavanaugh as part of a "con job" perpetrated by the Democratic Party, referring to the Senate minority leader and his colleagues as "Schumer and the con artists".
