Flake calls for civility, open minds at hearing for Kavanaugh, Ford

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

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

Kavanaugh, who has denied all allegations, also faces sexual misconduct accusations from two other women.

President Donald Trump answers questions in a NY press conference.

Another woman came forward over the weekend, telling The New Yorker magazine that Kavanaugh exposed himself and caused her to touch his penis at a party when both were Yale freshmen. "I know all too painfully that being a person of faith does not stop men from being sexual predators".

When asked if she had advice for Ford, Hill said it is "unfair" to give advice to people she has never met. Democrats have continued to call for a delay in Kavanaugh's confirmation vote and have pushed for an FBI investigation into the allegations.

While others took offense at Grassley's opening statement when he said that both Kavanaugh and Ford have been through "a bad couple of weeks".

"I am here today not because I want to be", she planned tell them, according to her prepared remarks. "In retrospect, I said and did things in high school that make me cringe now", he said in testimony released on Wednesday.

Asked to address the nation's young men, Trump said: "It's a very unsafe period in our country, and it's being perpetrated by some very evil people".

The 51-year-old woman said she had kept the episode a closely-guarded secret, except for sharing it with her husband and few of her friends, till the time it started appearing in the press that Kavanaugh was going to be nominated as a Supreme Court Judge.

The Weird Rhythm Of The Christine Blasey Ford Hearing
The Supreme Court nominee has been "incandescent" - as in extremely angry - according to one person involved in his preparation. She laughed nervously when Senator Grassley, the Republican chair of the committee, replied that no one made his coffee right.

"I could conceivably be turned down by someone that desperately wanted the job two months ago", Trump said, referring to a future Supreme Court nominee. On Twitter, Trump himself described Democrats' efforts to scupper Kavanaugh's nomination as a "con job" created to ruin a good man. Trump also blasted Avenatti personally on Twitter, calling him a "third rate lawyer" who makes "false accusations" and is "looking for attention".

Trump chose Kavanaugh after the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was a "swing" vote on the Supreme Court, a conservative who nonetheless sided with liberals in favour of abortion rights and gay rights in some key cases.

"And I'm standing up and filing this case, to say "This must end", Merkley said during a conference call with reporters".

In her statement, Swetnick said she previously worked for the Vietnam War Commemoration under the Department of Defense; the US Mint; the IRS; Customs and Border Protection; the State Department; and the DC government.

One of the men was interviewed twice by committee staff. She says while they were both in high school in 1982, Kavanaugh groped her and tried to rip off her clothes as he pinned her down on a bed.

The 1,600 names were pulled from among 4,200 people who signed an online petition, AdWeek reports.

Kavanaugh, who has categorically denied the allegations, was scheduled to testify after Ford. She described gang rapes she said occurred in which boys would line up to rape incapacitated girls.

"They were laughing with each other", Ford said.
