Cornyn, Graham And Hatch Indicate They May Question Blasey Ford In Hearing

A Third Accuser Comes Forward to Allege Kavanaugh and His Friends of Gang Rape

Hatch, a senator since 1977, has also said the committee should hear from Ford, and "then we should vote".

President Donald Trump has repeatedly defended his nominee, and has called the accusations a high-level Democratic con game. "It was hard for me to breathe and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me".

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

"I am horrified that they are denigrating this doctor who has come forward to share her story in the light of the ugliest pressure in the world", said Gretchen Whitmer, the Democratic nominee in Michigan's tightly contested governor's race, last Tuesday.

A White House official told The Associated Press on Thursday that the West Wing saw the judge's opening statement as "game changing" and said Trump appeared to be reacting positively. In a letter to the committee's leadership, Ford's attorneys said they would not provide any of Ford's medical records of the alleged assault.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is set to testify at 10 a.m. about allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh.

'We are writing to request that you immediately withdraw the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court or direct the FBI to re-open its background investigation and thoroughly examine the multiple allegations of sexual assault, ' the statement read. He mocked Ford's allegations - and several others since - that have accused him of sexual impropriety.

Russia to provide Syria with new missile system, over Israeli opposition
Still, Israel worries that the advanced missile system could make it more hard for them to target Iranian positions inside Syria . Earlier in the war, Russian Federation suspended a supply of S-300s, which Israel feared Syria could use against it.

Her husband since 2002, Russell Ford, has signed one of four sworn declarations supporting her allegation.

She claimed: "When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all very shocked when Brett Kavanaugh shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually. Ms. Mitchell has been recognized in the legal community for her experience and objectivity", Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley said in a statement announcing the hire. "Clearly, Republicans know that every time Kavanaugh speaks, he's losing, and they want to limit the damage as much as possible". "I spoke to somebody 38 years ago, and it may not be good", he said, adding: "The people that have complained to me about it the most about what's happening is women".

Christine Blasey Ford, a California research psychologist, will testify about her claims that, when they were teenagers, Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her by locking her in a room, pinning her down on a bed and groping her.

The Kavanaugh nomination has turned into a political firestorm ahead of November congressional elections and is threatening to derail Trump's push to get a conservative-minded majority on the top court ahead of the vote.

The 53-year-old judge has denied all accusations.

"I've had a lot of false charges made against me", he said. "I hope you never have children because they'll be just as worthless as you are". She also said Kavanaugh was present at a 1982 party at which she was raped.

"These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh", she said. The network reports that Senate Judiciary Committee investigators placed a call to Kavanaugh about the accusations on September 25 and he denied the encounter.
