Brett Kavanaugh’s entire hearing performance in one image

Kavanaugh added he has "never sexually assaulted anyone -not in high school, not in college, not ever".

Kavanaugh, 53, has strenuously denied assaulting anyone and insists he is the victim of a "smear campaign".

"Judge Kavanaugh I thought was frightening", third-year law student Alyssa Peterson said after watching some of Kavanaugh's testimony. In a sworn statement prepared by Avenatti and submitted to committee, Swetnick said that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present at a party where she was drugged and "gang raped".

"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".

Two other women have come forward with their own allegations against Kavanaugh, and Ford's testimony proved critical amid a national reckoning with sexual assault and during a heated confirmation process as a crucial Supreme Court seat remains vacant. "The questioning round will follow the same format that senators will follow during the round with Ford". There are several factors, including alcohol and the passage of time, that Republicans will undoubtedly press Ford on.

Earlier during the dramatic hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford said she didn't think she paid for the polygraph test herself and she does "not yet" know who did.

She says she witnessed Kavanaugh "drink excessively and engage in highly inappropriate conduct, including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking "No" for an answer". Judge Kavanaugh understood that he testified under penalty of felony, subject to up to 5 years of imprisonment. "They were all shocked when Brett Kavanaugh shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually".




Yale's public affairs office trumpeted Kavanaugh in a July press release, following his nomination to the USA top court, as a "terrific judge" who wrote "smart, thoughtful and clear" opinions.

Kavanaugh flatly denied the allegations Wednesday in a statement released by the White House.

"Take it from the commander in chief himself, who said of a day steeped in political, legal and judicial consequences: 'I think it's going to be a very, very, important day in the history of our country, ' President Donald Trump said in NY on Wednesday evening".

Kavanaugh and President Trump, along with other supporters including Sen.

How Kavanaugh could impact Supreme Court: Kavanaugh is a staunch conservative, and his confirmation would cement conservative control of the Supreme Court - furthering Trump's efforts to shift the federal judiciary to the right.

Meanwhile, the lawyer for Deborah Ramirez, who says Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they attended Yale University, raised her profile in a round of television interviews.

The report said the caller contacted Whitehouse's office the morning of September 24, 2018, after he saw Kavanaugh's high school yearbook photo on television and realized one of those men was Kavanaugh. Dr Ford told the committee, "I am an independent person and I am no pawn".
