Kavanaugh's fellow Yalies transfixed by Senate hearing

28 September 2018

Ford said Kavanaugh pushed her into a room and pinned her to a bed.

Sheryl Gay Stolberg, congressional correspondent for the New York Times. In that context, Jacobson said, "something that you do in high school can stick with someone else for the rest of their lives, and in some ways you should be held accountable for the decisions you made".

"'I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process".

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Sept. 27, 2018.

Kavanaugh told the senators, his voice raised: "I have never done this to her or to anyone".

"The high-stakes hearing comes a day before the committee is expected to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination, as scheduled by Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, on Tuesday".

"How can they do this to this poor man?" she says Republicans ask. He decried the "media circus" around the allegations and said the nominee and Ms Ford had been through a awful couple of weeks since Ford leveled her accusation.

"Her clinical language - I think she uses the word hippocampus about six times, that actually made her more, not less credible to me", said Jacob Bennett, a third-year law student, referring to Ford's physiological descriptions of how the brain forms memories. 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.

Republicans tapped Rachel Mitchell, an Arizona sex crimes prosecutor, to ask questions on their behalf Thursday.

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

Democrats on the Judiciary Committee grilled Kavanaugh Thusday afternoon on various details of the sexual assault allegations against him, as well as ominous suggestions that have been reported in the press, such as secret meanings behind some entries in his high school yearbook.

Mitchell huddled with several Republican members of the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday evening, but refused to answer questions as she left the meeting. Yes, Grassley has provided a pro forma expression of sympathy for Ford's situation, but Feinstein is visibly and emotionally connecting with her, and parrying Grassley's complaints about her decision to protect Ford's confidentiality with largely unanswered questions about his refusal to call other witnesses.

Polls show Kavanaugh is the most unpopular Supreme Court nominee in recent history.

Thursday will be different.

Kavanaugh flatly denied the allegations Wednesday in a statement released by the White House. Sheldon Whitehouse were all former attorneys general, and Minnesota Sen.

She wrote she witnessed Kavanaugh "engage in abusive and physically aggressive behavior toward girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent, grinding against girls and attempting to remove or shift girls' clothing to expose private body parts".
